Assessment 3: Maths resource folio Word limit: 2500 words (+/- 10%) Weighting: 50% Due date: [url removed, login to view] AEST Friday 2 October (Week 12)
The purpose of this folio assessment is to produce a collection of information, resources and reflections. Creating the folio will help you develop your skills in developing opportunities for numeracy and mathematics related experiences in play and everyday experiences.
By gathering information into a folio, you are demonstrating an ability to identify, evaluate and transmit ideas about effective engaging and encouraging mathematical experiences for children.
This assessment requires you to track your reasons for including specific evidence through adding a reflective dialogue. Your folio should not just be a collection of resources and if academic underpinning is not evident you will not pass this assessment.
● You will submit seven items (containing your evidence as detailed in the Theme table below).
● Your folio is to be submitted as a Word document.
● Each item should be clearly labelled with:
o Theme/title: the name and description
o Evidence: evidence of the resource such as a URL (if from an external source), filename or screen shot and a brief description of the resource (approx. 50 words)
o Rationale: a brief description of how the resource enhances children’s mathematical and numeracy thinking and skills, discussing benefits and limitations (approx. 120 words)
o Application: Discuss how the resource could be used in professional practice (approx. 200 words).
● Ensure that you make links to academic literature and curricula documentation to support your statements.
