Mathematics Education Specialisation


Designed for students wishing to become effective secondary mathematics teachers from Years 7 to 12.

It covers school curricula, teaching strategies and the development and assessment of teaching programs. Students will be able to plan a variety of mathematics lessons, assessments and activities, with a pedagogical focus on developing an appreciation of mathematics as a useful and creatively interesting area of study.

Special entry requirements

All applicants are required to complete a major in pure or applied mathematics (three years of degree level study comprising at least 6 units with no more than two at first-year level and no fewer than two units at third-year level) (must include algebra and calculus). One unit only of statistics may be counted provided it is studied as a stand-alone unit. Alternatively applicants can complete at least two years (4 units) of degree level study in pure or applied mathematics with at least two units at level 2 or above in the previously mentioned areas, if they intend to undertake this specialisation as their minor area of study.
