Aims, contents and method of the course

CONNECTING THEORY AT UNI WITH EVERYDAY SCHOOL LIFE – CAN IT BE DONE? (YES!)

In this seminar, we are going to practise typical core tasks of teachers and how to connect and apply our subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge while performing tasks of lesson preparation and follow-up (block 1: choosing exercises/problems, block 2: preparing explanations, block 3: evaluating student responses and providing feedback).

The goal is to make use of the theoretical knowledge previously learnt at university in the context of authentic teaching situations and challenges that might arise in the professional life of a teacher, as well as collectively practise a reflective stance toward one’s own teaching decisions.

The course will be part of a doctoral research project, therefore registering for the course simultaneously means agreeing to take part in two anonymous written surveys during lecture times (the answers to which will of course not affect grading in any way).

Assessment and permitted materials

Two main pillars of the seminar concept are measures of assistance which are strong in the beginning and then slowly faded out as time progresses, as well as systematic feedback loops. Therefore, the first lessons in each block will not be graded, and the drafts of graded problem solutions can be improved upon after receiving feedback.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

UPDATE 18.01.2022: The last lesson of the semester on January 26, 2022, will be held on site in lecture room HS2.

UPDATE 23.11.2021: Due to the lockdown, the course is switching to a digital format for the time being (using Blackboard Collaborate, further information to be found on the Moodle platform).

In general, 100 % attendance is required (course with continuous assessment).
IMPORTANT: Whether this course can be held in presence is not possible to determine at this point. Further information about this question will be provided here by the end of August.

UPDATE 31.8.: If possible (according to government and university regulations depending on the COVID situation) this seminar will be held IN PERSON. (Students who would like to participate but would only be able to do so in an online format, however, can communicate this interest by sending an informal and non-binding e-mail to kata.seboek@univie.ac.at.)

The final grade consists of:

- 30 % final version of the group tasks after having received peer feedback & own peer feedback provided to another group
- 30 % first drafts of individual tasks
- 30 % final version of individual tasks after having received feedback from the lecturer
- 10 % final reflection

Apart from the written solutions to the group and individual tasks (+ the final reflection), no separate seminar paper needs to be written.

Examination topics

- (course with continuous assessment)

Reading list

In principle, there is no required reading. Depending on the topics of the tasks we may revisit and refresh concepts from the subject matter courses on analysis and the didactics of analysis.

For further reading, however, one may look (e.g.) at the following sources:

- lecture notes for the course “Analysis in one variable for secondary school teacher accreditation programme”, e.g. by Roland Steinbauer (SS2020)
- lecture notes for the course “School mathematics analysis”, e.g. by Roland Steinbauer and Sonja Kramer (WS2020/21)
- literature about analysis, e.g. “Analysis. Band 1” by Ehrhard Behrends (2011, available via the university library)
- literature about the didactics of analysis, e.g. “Analysis verständlich unterrichten” by Rainer Danckwerts and Dankwart Vogel (2006) or “Didaktik der Analysis” (Gilbert Greefrath et al. 2016, available via the university library)

Aims, contents and method of the course

Aim: The book "Fundamentals of Mathematics Lessons in Secondary School" by H.-J. Vollrath and J. Roth will be discussed. It focuses on conveying didactic experience-based knowledge to future teachers, but at the same time stimulates and encourages them to try new things.

Content: Mathematics is respected in our society, but not loved. That does not be the case. The way young people encounter mathematics in school is decisive for attitudes towards mathematics. The most important task of mathematics teaching is to help adolescents develop their inherent mathematical skills. It aims to show ways in which a lively and intensive relationship between mathematics and the learners can be built up in the classroom.

Successful teaching is seen as goal-oriented and justifiable action that is based on well-founded content and didactic knowledge as well as an extensive and varied repertoire of methods. At the same time, it is a creative act in which lessons are constantly being redesigned and in which surprising teaching situations require didactic ideas. The book wants to convey the didactic knowledge required for this and to provide suggestions. The focus is on the following topics: Mathematics as a subject, learning mathematics, teaching mathematics, planning mathematics lessons, developing mathematics.

It has been thoroughly revised for the present second edition. Among other things, Sections on meaningful use of computers and new forms of teaching added. In addition, didactic tasks have been added to the chapters.

Table of contents: Mathematics as a subject (mathematics in school, mathematics as a general education subject, mathematics as a qualifying subject, mathematics as an authentic subject, content of math lessons), learning mathematics (aspects of learning mathematics, system-oriented learning of mathematics, problem-oriented learning of mathematics, Reflective learning of mathematics, long-term learning of mathematics), teaching mathematics (teaching mathematics as a task, teaching concepts, basic teaching patterns, communication in mathematics teaching, tools in mathematics teaching), planning mathematics teaching (planning a course, annual plan, planning a teaching sequence, planning a project , planning a teaching unit, planning important teaching phases), working out mathematics (working out concepts, working out facts, working out procedures, applying and modeling, problem-solving).

Method: Preparation of individual sections, also under the guidance of the lecture leader, presentation in plenary, discussion and reflection on certain topics in groups and in plenary. Depending on the possibilities, the seminar takes place online or as a face-to-face event.

Assessment and permitted materials

Oral: Assessment of the seminar lectures and the contributions to the discussions in the seminar sessions.

Presentation documents, subject didactic texts.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Presentation: Content and Performance; Collaboration (including attendance).

The lecture mainly determines the assessment. If the result is not clear, the participation will be used in the discussions of the presentations of other participants.

Compulsory attendance.

Examination topics

Derives from the selected presentation topics.
