Course Description

Often, by default, the way in which secondary mathematics is delivered follows the textbook used. Although this is not necessarily a bad approach there are alternatives that may be more effective in terms of students' engagement and achievement.

In this course, we will explore an approach to creating a cohesive and effective mathematics program. By cohesive I mean one where the topics flow and build on each other, and by effective, I mean that students will build on their previous understanding in a way that is meaningful.

Although I will be using the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics as my example, the methodology is applicable to any curriculum.

We will look at how to sequence topics, using spiralling and interleaving, and how to use cognitive load theory and retrieval practice to ensure that students retain what they learn.

This course will enable you to rethink how Mathematics can best be delivered in the secondary years.


This course is for all secondary teachers and leaders of Mathematics. It would also be of interest to curriculum leaders and principals.
