Teaching a Reformed High School Mathematics Curriculum: Inservice and Preservice Perspectives.
Ziebarth, Steven W.; Slezak, Judy; Lagrange, Dave; Kleinfelter, Natalie
This paper presents four different perspectives on the numerous changes associated with the implementation of Core-Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP), that of the university mathematics educator, two experience levels of practicing classroom teacher (both field-test teachers for CPMP), and the "student" teacher. Differences between teaching CPMP compared to more traditional mathematics courses are outlined, areas in which veteran and "student" teachers need additional education and training are suggested, potential shortcomings in current university mathematics and methods courses are highlighted, and teachers' own roles in the curriculum research and development process are discussed. A synopsis of each of these perspectives is presented. A discussion of implementation issues associated with similar projects and dilemmas faced by university educators in organizing content for methods courses and meaningful field experiences for their student teachers is also presented.
