Writing Papers in Math Class: A Tool for Encouraging Mathematical Exploration by Preservice Elementary Teachers
Danielson, Christopher
School Science and Mathematics, v110 n8 p374-381 Dec 2010
This paper describes the author's attempt to design assignments that engage preservice elementary teachers in original mathematical thinking. In particular, the choice of integer operations as the focus of a structured writing assignment that takes students two weeks to complete is explained and justified. Exemplary student work is quoted. (Contains 2 figures and 3 notes.)
