Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics.
Askey, Richard
American Educator, v23 n3 p6-9,12-13,49 Fall 1999
Reports that teaching elementary mathematics requires a much deeper mathematical knowledge than most experts have believed and that teachers must receive the training, textbooks, time, and support needed to develop this knowledge. Notes that U.S. mathematics teachers' knowledge is not nearly as robust as that of Chinese mathematics teachers, and it explains how Chinese teachers acquire their knowledge. (SM)
