Module overview

This module offers an opportunity to learn about mathematics education. We explore different perspectives on the teaching and learning of mathematics drawing on research and theoretical considerations. You will also experience a range of research-informed activities exploring numbers (numeracy), data (probability and statistics), algebra and geometry (National Curriculum content to GCSE level or equivalent). You will also reflect on learners’ experiences (including your own), connecting them to educational theories and empirical research.

This module is recommended for anyone interested in mathematics; and particularly for those considering careers in either teaching or education research.
