Completing ChinUP K-6: Navigating the NSW Maths Syllabus for New & Returning Teachers will contribute 2 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 2.5.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

Course Description

The NSW Mathematics K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum describes a continuum of learning across four strands for students in K-6. In order for students to ‘have the opportunity to participate fully in and progress through’ the syllabus, it is vital that teachers are fully conversant with both its contents and intent.

By engaging with the syllabus document, this practical, interactive workshop presented by Tim Waugh will assist graduate teachers and returning teachers to become familiar with its structure and intent and equip them with the skills to effectively implement the document in their classrooms.

Participants will leave the workshop with a deeper knowledge and understanding of:

  • Syllabus elements including the Aim, Rationale and Stage Statements
  • The organisation and structure of syllabus content including the syllabus strands and sub-strands
  • What it means to ‘Work Mathematically’ and how this is represented in the syllabus
  • Syllabus outcomes coding
  • The ‘Big Ideas’ of the syllabus content and how they’re represented in the document
  • The progression of Mathematical language/terminology K-6
  • The Learning Across the Curriculum areas and how they can be applied
  • Implications for the development of teaching programs and Scope and Sequence documents.

What to bring: A hard copy of the NSW Mathematics K-6 Syllabus, post-it notes and a yellow highlighter.
