Rania Aani — EDMA241 reflective journal

First week of learning about how to apply mathematics in the classroom, we were introduced to the Australian curriculum and Syllabus that act like a bible for teachers Today.

The syllabuses are basically the guidelines for teachers used to teach students the curriculum. A teacher must know the syllabus to be able to deliver the right information to her students to achieve positive results and to benefit those students.

The content presented in a stage represents the knowledge, skills and understanding that are to be acquired by a typical student by the end of that stage.

The Mathematics K–10 Syllabus contains the syllabus content for Early Stage 1 to Stage 5. Within each stage, the syllabus is organised into the three content strands, Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability,

I realised that to make maths a more interesting subject for children, I as a future teacher have to think outside the box, and try my best to deliver lessons in a fun fashion where the children will enjoy it and be very engaged with their learning.
