      GENERAL DESCRIPTION: In this subject the main concepts of the arithmetical framework are reviewed and different techniques for teaching these concepts in a Primary School are presented. This subject is complemented by the subjects Mathematics and Associated Teaching Methods II and III.

      OBJECTIVES:

      - Know the teaching and learning processes related to the numerical domain.

      - Analyze how primary education students learn numerical concepts.

      - Know and use didactical resources to teach numerical concepts.

      - Develop the ability to select and design mathematical tasks to teach numerical concepts, justifying the decisions made.

      CONTENTS: 

      1. Set theory. Natural numbers. Numeral systems. Divisibility. Instructional materials and resources. 

      2. Integers. Contexts. Instructional materials and resources.

      3. Rational numbers. Fractions. Decimal representation. Percentages. Instructional materials and resources.

      METHODOLOGY: 

      In the theoretical part, the main contents involved in the different units are shown. The student has to review them and he/she can complete the slides by considering the complementary material (included in Sections "Material de estudio y/o consulta" and "Otros recursos" if necessary). After that, it is necessary to solve the practical activities concerning each unit by taking into account that a deep explanation of each one of them is required since the student has to explain the solution as if he/she was the teacher.

      Additionally, some practical works are proposed. Some examples are included in the Section "Evaluación".

      ACTIVITIES: Included in the Section "Actividades prácticas, proyectos y/o casos".

      ASSESSMENT:  Included in the Section "Evaluación".
