CommentEnrolment only possible with matriculation in Mathematics Teaching Diploma or Mathematics TC at ETH.
Simultaneous enrolment in Mathematics Didactics - course unit 401-3971-11L - is compulsory.


AbstractStudents learn about and learn to use findings from empirical research into mathematical didactics and best practice, as well as theoretical approaches to teaching mathematics. Methodological suggestions are compared and draft tuition concepts discussed.
ObjectiveOn the basis of their understanding of mathematics, of the knowledge acquired from research into teaching/learning and subject teaching, and also of best practice, students who have completed this course will be in a position to draft motivating learning arrangements, with cognitive appeal, which trigger and maintain learning processes. The aim here is to implement a corresponding teaching plan, so that the mathematics tuition that is given has a general-education value, on the one hand, and ensures that pupils acquire the fundamental knowledge necessary for studying at university, on the other hand.
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course is to be chosen jointly with 401-3972-00L.
