## MATHEMATICS (MODULE I)

CODE 67667 2022/2023 4 cfu during the 3nd year of 9322 SCIENZE DELLA FORMAZIONE PRIMARIA (LM-85 bis) - GENOVA MAT/04 Italian GENOVA 1° Semester Prerequisites You can take the exam for this unit if you passed the following exam(s): TEACHER EDUCATION 9322 (coorte 2020/2021) MATHEMATICS I 67638 This unit is a module of: AULAWEB

## OVERVIEW

The course is aimed at: revising basic arithmetics and geometry contents to be taught; developing didactical competences in mathematics teaching; developing competences in planning, implementing, critically revising teaching sequences and carrying out efficient assessment strategies.

## AIMS AND CONTENT

### LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aims of this part of the course are: A. to revise and further develop the theme of rational numbers (fractions, decimal representation, representation on the number line); B. to revise basic geometry notions (length and surface measurements; elementary plane and space geometry concepts). Both subjects will be treated with reference to teaching in grades K to 5.

### AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is aimed at:

1) revising basic arithmetics to be taught in grades K-5; more specifically, the following themes will be addressed: additive and multiplicative structures; algorithms for subtraction and division.

2) developing didactical competences in mathematics teaching (being aware of didatical issues connected with the mathematical content; being able to perform a priori analysis of the tasks)

3) developing competences in planning, implementing, critically revising teaching sequences and carrying out efficient assessment strategies.

### TEACHING METHODS

Laboratory-style lessons (individual work on worksheets + class discussions).

Participant students are expected to attend to minimum 2/3 of the lessons, fill out the worksheet and do some homeworks.

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).

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.

Worksheets and reading materials will be provided during the course on aulaweb.
