OVERVIEW

The course aims to provide students with the basics of Mathematics with some references to related educational items, essential requirements for facing teaching in primary school and kindergarten.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

1. Acquiring basic mathematics knowledge for teaching in kindergarten and primary school 2. Acquiring didactic knowledge and competences in mathematics education. 3. Acquiring competences in developing practical activities and critical reflections in mathematics education, as well as in carrying out evaluation strategies.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

TRAINING OBJECTIVES

Consolidate and acquire basic mathematical knowledge and skills on disciplinary content, which will take up some of the  National Guidelines (MIUR, 2012) for primary and childhood schools, in particular "numbers" with attention to exploring, conjecturing and argumenting. In particular, attention will be paid to:

    Meaning of the number
    Genesis of the number
    Development of counting and calculation skills
    Natural numbers and their representation in the decimal-positional system, decimal numbers
    Natural numbers and properties of arithmetic operations

EXPECTED RESULTS

Knowledge and understanding

Acquiring critical knowledge of the theoretical foundations and languages ​​of mathematics.

Teaching knowledge related to mathematics in nursery and primary schools, with attention to interdisciplinary links.

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding

Design learning paths in mathematics.

Reading articles on dissemination and research in mathematics education, demonstrating the ability to understand, evaluate and use the results of empirical studies in order to build knowledge and improve interventions.

Working in a group for the design, organization and  verification of educational and didactic interventions.

Communication skills

Knowing how to adequately use the main representations  typical of mathematics (different number writing, algebraic register, graph, tables) and knowing how to express a mathematical argument in a clear and complete manner.

Learning ability

Knowing how to recognize mathematical and didactic models addressed in the course in new contexts and knowing how to apply them adequately.

Teaching methods

The lessons will be conducted online. Their registration will be available on streaming.

Teaching methods:


-Students will be provided, on Teams or Aulaweb platform, with study materials (slides, articles, videos ...) which will be discussed / verified during online lessons

-The students will be splitted into working groups and they will be asked to collaborate in solving tasks (reflection, production ...)

- The productions of the groups will be presented and discussed collectively during online lessons with the possibility of revisions and relaunches

 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

- Numbers: concept of number and its different aspects; counting process; natural numbers: operations, meanings and properties; number line; prime numbers, integers, decimal numbers

- Ratio and functions: modeling; representation registers; direct and inverse proportionality; the Cartesian graph as a modeling tool

- Examples of the concepts addressed with the description of educational activities
