Overview

Mathematics is about much more than numbers and equations. It’s about a systematic way of thinking and knowing the world around us. With the exponential growth of use of technology in many parts of contemporary life, the need for advanced levels of numeracy and mathematics have also grown in tandem. Mathematics teachers play a crucial role in preparing a new generation of young adults ready to take on the world.

This major will qualify you to teach maths to secondary students, including ATAR students in Years 11 and 12.

You’ll learn specialised skills to help you work in a range of teaching environments and take your learning beyond lectures and tutorials through a range of practical placements.

You’ll learn to manage a class of students, including dealing with possible challenging behaviour, parent teacher interviews and other situations through our SimLabTM technology –  a virtual classroom using actors and avatars, which is the only technology of its kind in WA.
