Mathematics and its Learning

Open University in Scotland

Content

This unique qualification will give you an understanding of how people learn mathematics, and an insight into different teaching approaches. Designed primarily with teachers – or those interested in mathematics education – in mind, it will develop your knowledge and understanding of the teaching of mathematics and statistics, and broaden your ideas about what it means to learn and use these subjects. You’ll gain a good grounding in mathematics (pure and applied), and in statistics – with the opportunity to focus your studies on either discipline as you progress.

Open entry, but if you're new to study or to the OU, it is recommended that you start at Level 1. You need some experience in maths and should be comfortable with a number of topics, such as fractions, square roots and scientific notations.
