A Capstone Mathematics Course for Prospective Secondary Mathematics Teachers
Artzt, Alice F.; Sultan, Alan; Curcio, Frances R.; Gurl, Theresa
Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, v15 n3 p251-262 Jun 2012
This article describes an innovative capstone mathematics course that links college mathematics with school mathematics and pedagogy. It describes how college juniors in a secondary mathematics teacher preparation program engage in leadership experiences that enable them to learn mathematics for teaching while developing student-centered pedagogical and assessment strategies. Examples show how students teach the class, complemented by excerpts from student journals containing students' perceptions of their learning. Preliminary research indicates the effectiveness of this course for preparing future mathematics teachers.
