Student Participation in Mathematics Lessons Taught by Seven Successful Community College Instructors
Mesa, Vilma
Adults Learning Mathematics, v5 n1 p64-88 Jun 2010
This paper presents results of a qualitative study describing classroom participation in pre-college mathematics classes taught by seven successful community college faculty members. The analysis reveals high levels of student participation coupled with low complexity, which can result in detrimental opportunities for students to learn mathematics. The multiple and competing functions and the diversity of the community college setting makes delivering high quality mathematical instruction more difficult. This paper discusses implications for further research and for practice.
