Mathematics for All Students! Mathematics for All Teachers?
Preston, Ronald V.; Lambdin, Diana V.
Mathematics for all students is a goal of the current mathematics education reform movement. But is today's reform also workable for all teachers? This report profiles two teachers who dropped out of field testing an innovative middle grades mathematics curriculum, the Connected Mathematics Project. These teachers are of interest because (1) their mathematics backgrounds seemed strong, (2) their espoused philosophies seemed compatible with the innovation, and (3) their work environments provided considerable support. The difficulties they encountered are described and recommendations are offered for helping teachers succeed with curricular reform. (Author/MKR)
