What Really Should Be Taught in the Elementary Mathematics Methods Course?
Watanabe, Tad; Yarnevich, Maureen
This paper presents the results of a survey that was administered to mathematics methods instructors, mathematics supervisors, inservice elementary school teachers, and preservice elementary teachers to investigate their beliefs about what should be taught in a preservice mathematics methods course. Current trends, doing mathematics, teaching a lesson, curriculum resources, manipulatives, problem-centered teaching, and questioning techniques received the highest mean responses from participants.
