Welcome to the course on ADS603 - Advanced Studies (Mathematics).

Module Code and Title:       ADS603 Advanced Studies    III        

Programme:                          Master of Education

Credit value:                          15 credits

Module Tutor:                       All Elective Module Tutors

Module Coordinator:            Dr. Kinley

 

General Objective

 

The Advanced Studies module III will enable students to explore deeper into their subject through critical analysis, investigation and reflection. Further, it will provide opportunity for in-depth exploration of selected topics in the subject disciplines leading to content enhancement. Consequently, the module will facilitate demonstration of advanced knowledge level in their own subject disciplines. The outcome of the module will be delivered through two seminars within their subject groups. These seminars will provide the platform for sharing their learning to an appropriate audience. It will also provide the students context for gaining foundation knowledge and experiences essential to conducting research and scholarship through writing and presentation.

 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the module, the students will be able to:        

I.          carry out in-depth content analysis of a unit in the respective subject matters;

II.          articulate the philosophy, definitions, and concepts of the unit succinctly;

III.         discuss the different perspectives on the concepts within the unit;

IV.        examine the concepts and components of the unit with multidimensional view such as depth, breadth, and currency;

V.          explore the depth and breadth of the content in the selected unit;

VI.        demonstrate confidence in teaching class XI & XII in their respective subject;

VII.       carryout independent reading and writing, which culminates in a seminar paper;

VIII.      develop analytical, writing, presentation, and reading skill;

IX.        demonstrate advanced knowledge in the selected units of their subjects through seminar presentations;

General Objective:                                                              
This module aims to enhance knowledge, skills and competence of the students in integrating Information Technology (IT) and teaching aids that will enhance student's learning of Mathematics content by making it more relevant and hands-on. The current reforms in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in Bhutan demand a curriculum geared towards learning science and mathematics through hands-on experiences. The students will develop leadership in the use of IT and teaching aids that will foster student-centered learning, change the way students and teachers interact and enhance teaching and learning of Mathematics.
