Learn by Teaching: A Mediating Approach to Teaching and Learning Mathematics for Prospective Teachers
Dogan-Dunlap, Hamide; Dunlap, Jeffrey; Izquierdo, Elena; Kosheleva, Olga
Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, v4 Apr 2007
A mediating approach is implemented into a section of Block I courses elementary pre-service teachers took in a cohort setting in Spring 2002. The paper discusses the components of the approach as well as the logistics of the initial implementation. Furthermore, the paper provides qualitative and quantitative analysis of a set of data gathered from a section of Spring 2002 Block I courses. The results indicate that a set of mediating activities similar to that of the ICFB ("An Integrated, Collaborative, Field-Based Approach to Teaching and Learning Mathematics") approach may result in changes on prospective teachers' attitudes toward and perceptions of mathematics as well as their performance in mathematical tasks. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
