Abstract

The purpose of this paper is two-fold: firstly it presents a description of the design and
teaching aspects of an innovative curriculum module undertaken with pre-service
teachers at the University of Tasmania. Through the module, Numeracy Opportunities
Across the Curriculum, pre-service teachers were required to design, trial and evaluate
maths trails with a group of school-aged students. Secondly, the processes engaged in by
the pre-service teachers, along with documentation of their ability to be reflective
practitioners, are also discussed. Through describing the learning experiences that were
undertaken and through qualitative feedback received from the pre-service teachers, this
paper seeks to provide useful information to other course designers and teacher
educators.
