What is this course about?

This course is designed to provide industry-skilled and qualified people access to pre-service teacher education and to complete a qualification in secondary mathematics teaching via the industry entry pathway. The course replaces the previously accredited Accelerated Teacher Training Program offered at CSU.

About the course

The Bachelor of Education (Secondary Mathematics) builds on knowledge and skills that students have previously acquired in their discipline area of mathematics. The course is designed to encourage students to develop this discipline knowledge further through University study and to apply this knowledge to the context of secondary teaching.

Upon completion of this course, graduates will be able to:

  • display an understanding of educational and curriculum issues in the area of mathematics
  • plan and implement for the teaching-learning process
  • develop and employ effective behaviour management strategies
  • communicate and interact professionally with students, staff members, and the communities served by their school
  • monitor and assess student progress and learning activities
  • reflect, evaluate, and plan for continuous self-improvement
  • use and develop professional knowledge and values
  • display an understanding of, and competence in, the mathematics discipline area within the context of a Year 7 to Year 12 continuum
  • utilise appropriate teaching/learning technologies pertinent to their field.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the NSW Institute of Teachers.

Articulation and credit

A credit package of 112 points will be awarded upon entry into the program.

Course structure

This course consists of 264 points.

Restricted Electives Discipline Subjects:

These subjects are focussed on enhancing and extending the students existing Mathematics and Information Technology skills where deficient; broadening discipline knowledge or skills. By completion of study students must have a Major in pure or applied mathematics with a minimum of 6 Maths discipline subjects (including prior study deemed relevant to this program). Four subjects must be at level 2 or above and the Major in pure or applied mathematics must include algebra and calculus. In total, only one unit of statistics may be counted in this Maths major provided it is studied as a stand-alone unit. A student may only include an Information Technology discipline subject as their restricted elective(s) if the Course Coordinator determines they have sufficient Mathematics content to meet the NSWIT criteria for Secondary Mathematics as a first designated teaching area.

Restricted Elective subjects will be as approved by course coordinator - including but not restricted to:

MTH203 Numerical Methods
MTH218 Multivariable Calculus
MTH219 Linear Algebra or MTH419 Linear Algebra
MTH220 Ordinary Differential Equation

Professional recognition

This course has current accreditation until 2009. The procedures and responsibility for accreditation of teachers in NSW have been undergoing substantial change over the past three years. Presently this course has retained accreditation initially granted by the NSW DET, Teacher Qualification Advisory Panel which formerly approved courses for teacher accreditation in NSW DET schools.

This accreditation has been continued by the NSW Institute of Teachers, the body that has subsumed the NSW DET role in course accreditation. This modified course will be submitted to the NSW Institute of Teachers for accreditation and will apply to accreditation for teaching in all NSW secondary schools.
