Elementary Mathematics deals with the area of mathematics regarded as basic knowledge and which confronts us in many forms in every-day life situations. It encompasses the basic mathematical concepts and structures known to civilisations for thousdands of years: the symmetries and patterns, numbers and operations, graphical depictions and tables, algebraic structures and functional correlations with which we are confronted in many areas of life, both consciously as well as unconsciously.

DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

Elementary Mathematics deals with the area of mathematics regarded as basic knowledge and which confronts us in many forms in every-day life situations. It encompasses the basic mathematical concepts and structures known to civilisations for thousdands of years: the symmetries and patterns, numbers and operations, graphical depictions and tables, algebraic structures and functional correlations with which we are confronted in many areas of life, both consciously as well as unconsciously. This is a main component of the mathematics taught in primary schools and it also plays a key role in elementary education.
Studies in Elementary Mathematics at university level focus on the teaching of mathematics for the aforementioned school type and the area of child education.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Teacher training (Lehramt)

After completing their Referendariat period, graduates are qualified teachers in the following school subjects:

  • Grundschule
  • Inklusive Pädagogik/Sonderpädagogik an Grundschulen

More informations on the offered courses for the teaching profession at public schools can be found here.

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admission to doctoral studies.

In order to qualify as a teacher at state schools in Germany it is mandatory to complete an 18-month period of teaching practice in school, ending with the second state exam.

Supplementary/optional courses
The Certificate Program Foundation Studies in Digital Media for Education is an optional course for students studying education related subjects.

Subject combinations teacher training

Students should note that combinations of subjects vary according to the school category(elementary/secondary).

Here you will find more information on courses for students training to be teachers at state-run schools.

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Studies in the subject Elementary Mathematics train students in the foundations of the subject which are of relevance for teaching and learning mathematics. Mathematical thinking in arithmetic and geometry, stochastic and mathematical modelling and broad-based practical as well as theoretical knowledge of teaching skills are included in the basic curriculum and are compulsory for all students.
Courses train students in the analysis of learning processes and didactics, preparing them for independent academic and practical work.

Education science

In this programme area, subject-related studies in the field of teacher training are supplemented with courses dealing with teaching practice. This programme area comprises 13 - 23 % of studies in the field of teacher training, depending on the type of school envisaged. It encompasses the following topics: studies in education, subject didactics, internships and key qualifications.
