Patterns. A Course to Reduce Math Anxiety and Sex-Role Stereotyping in Elementary Education.
City Univ. of New York, Flushing, NY. Queens Coll.
This Teacher Education and Mathematics (TEAM) content module focuses on patterns. It consists of: (1) an instructor's text; (2) an instructor's guide and solutions to student exercises; (3) student materials and exercises; and (4) student summary and review. The instructor's text provides specific directions for guiding lessons and commentary on mathematics content and mathematics attitudes. This is accomplished by a "facing pages" format whereby the right-hand page provides step-by-step teaching directives while the left-hand page provides teaching insights, other options of instruction, and psychological or attitudinal strategies, when appropriate. The instructor's text also contains content objectives, specified to indicate the scope and structure of the module, and student evaluation materials. The instructor's guide and solutions to exercises recommends teaching approaches to the materials and provides answers to problems. diagrams, charts, and centimeter-squared paper to be used by students. Exercises include problems that apply the concepts and problem-solving strategies developed in the module; they may be used as part of the instructional activities, as content for small-group activities, as homework assignments, or as review materials. The student summary and review summarizes the content of the module, focusing on formulas, terminology, key concepts, problem-solving strategies, and examples of techniques used. (JN)
