Module Developer Writing Tip. In this section, Module Developers should specify the main rationale for the module. A good rationale will clearly present why learners (preservice teachers) will better teach the subject matter having completed the module (maximum length : 50-75 words).
Number theory is an essential module that assists teachers in understanding and interpreting the properties of numbers. It forms a background to the numerous proofs and solutions of various mathematical equations. It forms the backbone of theory crucial for the teaching of secondary school mathematics and is an important building block in the study of higher-level mathematics.
