## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aims of this part of the course are: A. to revise and further develop - according to educational aims related to teaching in grades K to 5 – the theme of arithmetic operations (particularly subtraction and division); B. to introduce basic statistics and probability notions, according to educational aims related to the approach to statistical and probabilistic thinking in grades K to 5.

Teaching methods

Laboratory-style lessons (individual worksheets and class discussions).

Participant students are expected to fill the worksheets and do some homeworks. They will also be asked to write down, in groups, the nots of the lessons.

Non participant students are expected to fill the worksheets at home.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Additive and subtractive structures; proto-conceptualization of the operations (for kindergarten); conceptual aspects arithmetic operations and calculation techniques, in relation to solving problems (for primary school).

Basic elements of probability and descriptive statistics.

The aforementioned contents will be treated in reference to current National Guidelines and to the related teaching and learning problems, with a special focus on linguistic and representational aspects.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

Worksheets and reading materials will be provided during the lessions. At the end of the course the students will receive a revised version of the notes of the lessons.
