Overview

Mathematics, Primary and Junior - Part 1 is an Additional Qualification (AQ) course. This course employs a critical, pedagogical lens to explore, in a holistic and integrated manner:

  • theoretical foundations
  • learning theory
  • program planning, development and implementation
  • instructional design and practices
  • assessment and evaluation
  • the learning environment
  • research and ethical considerations related to teaching and learning across the divisions

See the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) guidelines for more details about the course.
