Essential Qualities of Math Teaching Remain Unknown
Cavanagh, Sean
Education Week, v27 n31 p1, 15 Apr 2008
According to a new federal report, the qualities of an effective mathematics teacher remain frustratingly elusive. The report of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel does not show what college math content and coursework are most essential for teachers. While the report offered numerous conclusions about math curriculum, cognition, and instruction, many of its recommendations about improving teaching are more tentative and amount to a call for more research.
