This course requires some basic knowledge of mathematics, equivalent to that achieved with the secondary-school mathematics. It is recommended to have taken and passed the subjects: "Mathematics for Teachers" (first course) and "Learning mathematics and curriculum" (second course). It is important to have an open and critical approach that allows seeing mathematics from different perspectives. Discriminatory attitudes or behaviors will not be accepted, and the inclusive use of language will be ensured.

Compulsory third year course that focuses on the development of skills of teaching and mathematical analyses, based on real situations of primary mathematics classrooms, to allow to design, manage and evaluate innovative, interdisciplinary and inclusive mathematical activities.

Recommendation of having completed the compulsory subjects: "Mathematics for teachers" and "Learning mathematics and curriculum". *Management and innovation in mathematics classroom* aims at enacting the ability to relate and integrate the knowledge students have constructed in the former subjects of mathematics and mathematics education that is needed for teaching mathematics at primary school.

This course develops practical knowledge and application of mathematics curriculum in the planning, the design and the assesment of activities and sequences of teaching and learning mathematical contents in the primary school, exemplifying the following curricular mathematical content:

1. Geometry: geometric transformations, symmetry and similarity.

2. Rational numbers: decimals and operations, representations and concept of fraction.

3. Measure: quantities and units of measurement, measurement procedures. Proportionality.

The following objectives are specified:

1. Knowing theoretical elements to analyze educational situations of teaching and learning mathematics in primary school

2. Acquiring professional skills of didactical and mathematical analysis. In the design, planning, management and evaluation of teaching and learning sequences (involving numbers, measurement and geometry)

3. Understanding and analyzing teaching situations, interdisciplinary and innovative situations, identifying mathematical and other contents.

3.2. Resources for the work in mathematics classroom: technologies, languages, manipulatives and games.

**4. Evaluation of mathematical activity in the primary classroom**

4.1. Mathematics assessment: concepts, processes, skills.

4.2. Methodes to evaluate mathematical practices: assessment, correction, rating.

4.3. Moments of assessment in learning mathematics: initial, continuing, summative, final.

The student will attend weekly sessions in large group and seminars in small group. The large sessions group, led by the teacher, will be dedicated to the analysis and discussion of real situations of learning and teaching mathematics classroom in primary school. Besides, there will be work on mathematical concepts and ideas that emerge from the teaching situations.

To help to develop professional skills of teaching and mathematical analysis, seminars in small group will be based on the analysis of real situations of primary mathematics classrooms, linked to the specified mathematical contents. Seminars will facilitate the design, management and evaluation of innovative, interdisciplinary and inclusive mathematical activities. Also, seminars will enhance small group within the oral processes of the design and analysis of the sequences teaching programs in mathematics at the primary stage prepared.

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

The evaluation of the course will be held throughout the first semester by the activities shown below.

Attendance to the classes is compulsory.

All the works throughout the course (designing a teaching sequence, analysis of cases individually and in group, and other activities of the seminars) will be submitted within the established date and without retrieval. When not delivered in due time, the evaluation of the work will automatically have a qualification of zero. The delivery of the works and of the assessments by the teacher will be agreed on between students and teachers during the course.

The deliveries of the analysis of individual and group cases, articles and other seminar activities will be closed weekly on the day of the session of each subgroup. The delivery of the design of a didactic sequence will be closed on the day of the session of each subgroup of the final week of november.

It is essential a correct and proper use of language in all the works. Linguistic correctness is considered in the evaluation of all these works.

Total or partial plagiarism of one of the evaluation activities or copy in an assessment test is a direct reason for suspending the subject, following the criteria and guidelines for evaluation of the Faculty.

The marking of a working group is not necessarily the individual grade of all students in this group. The individual assessment in a working group is determined by the evidence of learning of each individual in the group.

For the final test,it is necessary to obtain at least a score of five over ten.

For the formative evaluation activities, it is necessary to obtain at least five over ten in all of them.

The final evaluations and re-avaluations will be the last two academic weeks of December according to the day assigned to each subgroup.

A student receives rating of not evaluable if a task has not been presented or the individual test has not been completed.

**This subject does not consider the option of single evaluation.**
