Sensitivity for the Complexity of Problem Oriented Mathematics Instruction--A Challenge to Teacher Education
Fritzlar, Torsten
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 28th, Bergen, Norway, July 14-18, 2004
Teaching can be understood as acting and deciding in a complex system. On that problem oriented mathematics instruction (POMI) can be characterized as very high complex particularly regarding to mathematical-cognitive aspects. To cope with resulting demands in the long run, the teacher has to be sensitive for this complexity. But what does this mean? How can you get some clues for one's degree of sensitivity for complexity of POMI? Is it possible to sensitize teachers or teacher students for this complexity?
