An Analysis of the Required Mathematical Preparation for Secondary School Mathematics Teachers in the United States. A Summary.
Johnson, Carl S.
A survey questionnaire designed to gather information concerning collegiate requirements for the mathematical training of secondary school mathematics teachers was sent to the 749 members of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. This paper summarizes the responses on the 448 returns received. The survey was designed to determine the number of semester hours of mathematics courses required of future mathematics teachers, the extent to which institutions offer different programs for junior and senior high school teachers, and the nature and extent of curricular change in the mathematical preparation of teachers since 1960. In addition to questions concerning specific course requirements, respondents were asked to indicate whether certain topics are included in courses. They were queried concerning curricular changes and the major influences motivating these changes; three questions concerned outstanding features and needs of respondents' programs. (SD)
