Course: Children experience numbers as part of their lifeworld

Mathematics – technology – digitality

Admission requirements


Semester: 6



Mathematics, technology, and digitality in their systemic interrelationships are the focus of this course. They are elaborated on the basis of practical examples of application with reference to the Anthropocene for teaching at the primary level. In addition to didactic–methodological content such as the planning of project-oriented learning settings and interdisciplinary learning spaces, the importance of sensitivity to diversity and multilingualism as well as individualised support is taught.

  • Mathematics as a means of grasping natural, technical, and informatic phenomena and environmental conditions
  • Scientific analysis of mathematical, technical, and informational facts from the living environment of pupils in the context of the Anthropocene (recording global changes through digital media, data collection and analysis; sustainability and resource consumption through digital media; statistical representations such as diagrams, tables, and curves as a form of comparing observations of weather phenomena)
  • Elementary modelling and consolidation in the field of the didactics of factual arithmetic as well as further subject didactic concepts and models with reference to the Anthropocene (e.g. observing/recording/documenting/comparing meteorological processes) for age-, development- and gender-appropriate interdisciplinary teaching
  • Development of problem-solving strategies in interdisciplinary lessons with mathematics as a link between technical, natural, and informational phenomena and environmental conditions
  • Development of CLIL materials with reference to multimodal strategies for the development of reading strategies (skimming, scanning, careful reading)
