Teacher Responsible:

1º Ano | 2º Semestre

**Learning objectives**

Apply adequate vocabulary in describing situations
Critically support options
Recognise the role of Didactics of Mathematics in teaching/learning of mathematics
Characterize different representations of mathematical knowledges to work in child education contexts: numerical, geometrical, measurements and organisation and representation of data
Analyze mathematical situations and activities adequate for learning concepts
Propose different pedagogical strategies in order explore concepts and develop logical-mathematical activities
Explore ICT appled to pre-school contexts
Develop critical analysis, innovation, pedagogical reseaarch and reflection on the practice

**Syllabus**

1. Mathematics in pre-school education - framework and intentions
2. Areas of exploration in the Mathematics domain
2.1. Numbers and operations
2.2. Geometry and operations
2.3. Data organization and data treatment
3. Structured and non-structured didactical materials in Mathematics in child education contexts
4. Software for initial Mathematical learnings

#### Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

Teaching methodologies: exposure, debate, document analysis, gorup work and problem solving
Evaluation strategies and weight: individual portfolio (100%)
A portfolio allows the documentation of the learning process by it's author throughout the process and should include a reflection on the developments experienced and of future challenges. Therefore, by making an individual portfolio that facilitates self evaluation and other's evaluation, students are able to understand in time processes and results from learning, stimulating individual creativity processes and conceptual enrichment achieved by multiple sources of knowledge. #### Essential Bibliography (including ISBN)
