Responding to Mathematics Reform at the College Level
Byers, Patricia
College Quarterly, v7 n3 Sum 2004
Ontario's elementary and secondary school mathematics curriculum was implemented in Fall 2000 having been revised according to the key principles of the social-constructivist view of mathematics education. This change in pedagogy has implications for teaching and learning mathematics, the use of technology and the emphasis in problem-solving. In the search for understanding, this paper summarizes some of the key research which provided a substantial foundation to the secondary school curriculum. The implications the revised curriculum will have on educating incoming college students are identified with respect to these pedagogical changes and some recommendations for a college response are provided.
