Kistler, Barbara C.
This paper suggests that faculty at two-year institutions need to become partners with colleges of education and K-12 teachers of mathematics in preparing future mathematics teachers. The paper presents the following: a summary of recommendations on programs for prospective teachers; a summary of recommendations about mathematics courses for prospective teachers; a summary of recommendations for course content for future elementary mathematics teachers; a summary of standards for K-4 teacher preparation proposed mathematics curricula; mathematics content courses for preservice elementary teachers; a course outline for elementary mathematics teachers; course objectives for elementary mathematics teachers; mathematics activities that work (with accompanying directions and reproducible sheets); multicultural activities that provide mathematics education (with accompanying directions and reproducible sheets); and writing to learn activities.
