The Impact of a Secondary Preservice Teacher's Beliefs about Mathematics on Her Teaching Practice.
Benken, Babette M.; Wilson, Melvin
This paper describes one preservice secondary teacher's beliefs about mathematics and discusses how these beliefs were related to her teaching practice. The participant was interviewed and observed throughout the final academic year of her undergraduate preservice program (methods course and student teaching). Although she communicated beliefs emphasizing the importance of cooperative exploration by students to understand connections among mathematical concepts, some of her more narrow views about the importance of mathematical procedures inhibited her ability to successfully implement exploratory, student-centered learning activities during her student teaching. Contains 12 references. (Author/DDR)
