Elementary school teachers should possess the material they teach. In the first year mathematics course the attention will be focussed on the basic knowledge and skills mentioned in the learning plans for mathematics on a primary school level. The main aim of the course is to brush up this basic knowledge and to eliminate eventual deficits. Attention will also be given to the skills that underlie a clear insight into the subject-matter, viz. to have mastered procedures, to develop an appropriate way of thinking and problem solving, to reflect on problem solving methods, and to develop a critical attitude with respect to figures or numerical data.

The course covers the following subjects: sets and relations, number theory, geometry and problem solving. Each part of the course comprises exercises to make independently (self-study).

No specific prerequisites.
