A Component for a Methods Course for Preservice Secondary School Mathematics Teachers Involving Computers and Other Laboratory Activities.
Davison, David Malcolm
A part of a methods program consisting of lectures, demonstrations, laboratories, and practical applications, preservice mathematics teachers examined the role of activity methods, including use of computers, in secondary-school mathematics instruction. They were then expected to apply this knowledge as student teachers. Data collected to evaluate the program included reactions of the student teachers and reports of their work in the classroom. These data were collected from a preliminary trial and two feasibility trials; the activity component was modified after each trial. In each trial there was evidence that the student teachers could use activities in different ways. At one school, student teachers used an activity orientation daily; at another, each student teacher taught a complete unit including at least one activity lesson (many restricted the use of activities for motivation or review).
