The Implementation of a "Function" Approach to Introductory Algebra: A Case Study of Teacher Cognitions, Teacher Actions, and the Intended Curriculum.
Haimes, David H.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v27 n5 p582-602 Nov 1996
Reports a case study set in the context of a "function" curriculum approach to introductory algebra. The expectation that the teacher's actions would reflect the philosophy implied in the curriculum was not supported. The teacher gave priority to curriculum content coverage, emphasized methods and procedures, and adopted teacher-focused pedagogical practices instead. (Author/AIM)
