Preparing School Mathematics Teachers To Meet the Challenges of Reform.
Browning, Christine A.; Channell, Dwayne E.; Van Zoest, Laura R.
This paper focuses upon three recently revised preservice, content-specific methods courses: "Teaching of Middle School Mathematics,""Computing Technology in Secondary School Mathematics," and "Teaching of Secondary School Mathematics." Changes in these methods courses better address and build upon preservice teacher beliefs about, and knowledge of, school mathematics, the teaching of mathematics, the assessment of learned mathematics, and the student as learner of mathematics. The authors believe these modifications increase the likelihood of graduates successfully implementing mathematics reform curricula in middle and secondary school classrooms. Three appendixes contain sample materials used in academic courses in mathematics and computing technology (Author/ASK)
