Exploring Relationships between Presage Variables of Florida Preservice Agricultural Education Teachers Related to Teaching Contextualized Mathematics
Stripling, Christopher T.; Roberts, T. Grady
Journal of Agricultural Education, v54 n4 p73-91 2013
The purpose of this exploratory study was to investigate the relationships between mathematics ability, personal mathematics efficacy, mathematics teaching efficacy, personal teaching efficacy, and background characteristics of preservice agricultural education teachers. Data were collected for two years at the University of Florida. Fourteen moderate associations were found between the variables in this study. In addition, categorical differences in mathematics ability, personal mathematics efficacy, mathematics teaching efficacy, and personal teaching efficacy were found related to presage variables of the preservice teachers. Based on the results of this study, further research is warranted to determine the most appropriate means for preparing Florida preservice agricultural education teachers for teaching contextualized mathematics.
