Achieving Cognitive Equity in the Mathematics Classroom.
Tharp, Marcia L.; Lovell, Chris
A preliminary investigation of patterns of teacher thought about student reasoning and learning involved presenting 23 preservice teachers with a "dilemma of practice about equity." Resulting stages of teacher development concerning equity in reasoning were found to correlate significantly with Perry's scheme. However for those who hold the view that mathematics learning is mostly rule-based, no significant correlation was found with theses stages of teacher thought about reasoning and equity. Yet, holding a rule-based viewpoint of mathematics learning was found to correlate significantly in the expected direction with Perry's scheme. Contains 17 references. (Author/MKR)
