Chapline, Elaine B.; And Others
This document provides details about the Teacher Education and Mathematics (TEAM) Project, which developed a model program and instructional materials that can be used to increase confidence and skills of students in undergraduate teacher education courses. TEAM materials and curriculum were specifically designed to: (1) reduce mathematics anxiety in teacher education students; (2) develop instructor skills in identifying sex bias in mathematics curriculum materials and teacher-pupil classroom interaction; and (3) increase teacher knowledge of mathematical concepts needed for elementary school instruction. The project concentrated on writing, field-testing, and evaluating instructional modules and assessment instruments to meet the goals stated above. Sections of this document cover: (1) Executive Summary; (2) Review of Year One Activities; (3) The TEAM curriculum; (4) Activities, Material Development and Revisions; (5) Evaluation; and (6) Implications for Future Research. The material notes that while several modules were identified as in some need of revision, the material overall was perceived as satisfactory by both faculty and students. (MP)
