 Monday and Thursday from 9:30 to 10. Tuesday from 13:30 to 14h

Introduction

In the event that the health authorities announce a new period of confinement due to the evolution of the health crisis caused by COVID-19, the teaching staff will promptly communicate how this may effect the teaching methodologies and activities as well as the assessment.


DURING THE COURSE 20-21 AND DUE TO THE CONDITIONS IMPOSED BY THE HEALTH SITUATION RELATED TO COVID 19, THIS SUBJECT WILL BE TAUGHT IN TWO DIFFERENT MODALITIES FOR THE MORNING AND AFTERNOON SHIFTS.

IN THE MORNING SHIFT THE MODE WILL BE SEMI-PRESENT AND IN THE AFTERNOON SHIFT IT WILL BE TOTALLY ONLINE. IN BOTH CASES, THE PROPOSED ACTIVITIES WILL BE THE SAME.

TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT, BECAUSE OF THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF SHOWING TWO MODALITIES IN THE SAME TEACHING GUIDE, THE TRAINING ACTIVITIES AND THE EVALUATION ACTIVITIES THAT WILL BE CARRIED OUT AT NIGHT WILL ALL BE IN ONLINE FORMAT.

We propose a learning Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Mathematics so as interdisciplinary project work and various work tools in response to the need for well-trained teachers. All this, with an integrated educational philosophy of the human person and for capacities to promote active learning and meaningful, motivating, and better communication and relationships and effective.

This stuff is 18 credits during the first half distributed equally according to content:

Natural Sciences and Social Learning - 6 ECTS
Learning of Mathematics, -6 ECTS
Interdisciplinary project work in native communities, Social Sciences and Mathematics - 6 ECTS

Objectives

Encourage research skills.
Working skills of reasoning, analysis and synthesis
Develop communication skills.
Applying digital technologies in the development of mathematical thinking

  6. relates and applies the theoretical work situations arising in practice.Linking assessment with the skills and learning outcomes.analyzes and uses the error as a source of learning sciences.
  7. Develops guidelines for observation and monitoring in line with planned activities, quality-oriented.
  8. relates the logic that presents students with scientific logic.
  9. Consider the assessment of teaching practice as part of the process of teaching and learning.
  10. Participate in group activities and considers the contributions of colleagues the benefit of the individual and collective learning.
  11. Communicate their ideas to others and express reasoned correctly in language teaching (Catalan in the case of this subject), oral and written, and is able to represent them using concept maps or other procedures.
  12. Know interpret and integrate knowledge of English documents in this matter.
  13. Communicate your ideas to others argued and expressed correctly in the language of instruction (Catalan in the case of this subject), orally and in writing, and is able to represent them through conceptual maps or other procedures

Syllabus

 
  • The mathematics curriculum in education infantl
  • Constructing mathematical knowledge: development of mathematical thinking from 0 to 6 years

Blocks to develop content

Introduction to children's mathematics. What / Why teach mathematics in EI

  1. What teaching to the development of children's mathematics?
  2. How to promote the development of mathematical thinking to IE?
  3. Assessing the development of mathematical thinking to IE: why, what, how and when to evaluate?

Teaching and learning activities

In blended



Mathematical learning

Keep consistency with other areas of the field work and the overall project methodology and corners. We will also cooperative learning, expository method and solving exercises and problems. Work with different types of training activities: study and group work, workshops, lectures and practices, and individual self-study.

Mathematical learning

The subject is a person and continue ongoing assessment linked to the achievement of competencies (attendence 60%). Students may be self-regulate their level of learning according to the rubrics of nl'assignatura.

We evaluate personal progress within a cumulative assessment. VERY IMPORTANT: you take into account the consistency between personal and group notes, to certify the achievement of individual skills.

If you consider that one of the powers has not been achieved, based on the rubrics of the course will be recovered at the second call. In this case the test is specific for this competition.

According to the guidelines of the grade and consistent with the cross development of communicative competence CG2, we'll help with correction in spelling and in drafting in evaluation activities. In this regard they will be returned with an NC those works (no evidence) that show excessive misspellings or illegible written. In the event that no appropriate NC, we will penalize with 0.2 points each serious misconduct observed.
