Details

As a secondary teacher, you can contribute to the development and further growth of keen young adult minds in the real world. You can share your passion for your chosen teaching areas. 

In the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) you will choose a major and a minor teaching area depending on your desired career outcome.  The mathematics major would suit students who have completed maths B or C at high school.

Why choose this course?

Mathematics teachers play a central role in developing students’ essential scientific and numeracy capabilities. Students develop fundamental skills across number and algebra, measurement and geometry, and statistics and probability. Mathematics teachers have the opportunity to prepare students for learning in a range of disciplines and provide them with the skills they will need in their personal life and career.

With QUT’s Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree, you will gain an understanding of approaches to teaching and planning instruction in mathematics for the senior and junior years of schooling. You will be taught by leading academics and equipped with quality support and cutting-edge resources. You will be prepared to teach subjects in the Australian Curriculum.
