Standards-Based Mathematics Training To Improve Teacher's Content Knowledge and Enhance Parental Support for Student Learning.
Bailey, Lora B.
The purpose of this research is to provide elementary mathematics teachers strategies that will enhance their knowledge of standards-based mathematics content and pedagogy and to increase parents' and homework help-line employees' knowledge of standards-based mathematics concepts. Teacher participation in standards-based mathematics activities is intended to promote greater access to developmentally effective mathematics instruction for underachieving students. Parent and homework help-line training is intended to provide support to students as they attempt to complete standards-based homework assignments. The project work is intended to impact students' mathematics standardized test scores, mathematics classroom grades, teachers' mathematical content knowledge, and parental support.
