Sears, Ruthmae; Kersaint, Gladis; Burgos, Fernando; Wooten, Rebecca – PRIMUS, 2019

This article describes reflections of two mathematicians and a mathematics teacher educator who collaborated on the development and implementation of courses (probability and statistics connections, number concept connections, and middle school mathematics methods) for middle school mathematics preservice teachers. The instructors of the courses,…

Cook, Samuel A.; Borkovitz, Debra K. – PRIMUS, 2017

In this paper we present data from one-on-one interviews conducted with students who have taken intermediate and advanced inquiry-based mathematics courses in a program that prepares future preK-8 teachers. Many of these students entered college with a fear of math, but then gained confidence from a required introductory math course and chose to…

Buell, Catherine A.; Greenstein, Steven; Wilstein, Zahava – PRIMUS, 2017

It is widely accepted in the mathematics education community that pedagogies oriented toward inquiry are aligned with a constructivist theory of learning, and that these pedagogies effectively support students' learning of mathematics. In order to promote such an orientation, we first separate the idea of inquiry from its conception as a…

Köse, Emek; Johnson, Angela C. – PRIMUS, 2016

In this article, we present a case study of a course called Women in Mathematics. Students in the course studied the lives and the mathematical contributions of women mathematicians throughout history, as well as current gender equity issues in the study of mathematics and in mathematical careers. They also mentored 20 middle school girls…

Klanderman, David B.; Moore, Mary Webster; Maxwell, Mandi S.; Robbert, Sharon K. – PRIMUS, 2013

We describe several service-learning initiatives implemented by the mathematics and education departments. College students with majors and minors in math and math education have helped to design and implement math events for elementary and middle school students. Formal and informal reflections on these service-related experiences have…

Yopp, David A. – PRIMUS, 2012

Considerable literature has documented both the pros and cons of students' use of empirical evidence during proving activities. This article presents an analysis of a classroom episode involving in-service middle school, high school, and college teachers that demonstrates that learners need not be steered away from empirical investigations during…

Jonker, Leo – PRIMUS, 2008

It is possible to get prospective elementary school teachers to learn interesting mathematics well by not only requiring that they learn the material in a mathematics course but also requiring that they teach it as part of an enrichment program at the middle school level. This article discusses the reasons for such a course, and describes a…

Sutherland, Melissa – PRIMUS, 2006

In this paper we discuss manipulatives and hands-on investigations for Calculus involving volume, arc length, and surface area to motivate and develop formulae which can then be verified using techniques of integration. Pre-service teachers in calculus courses using these activities experience a classroom in which active learning is encouraged and…

Munakata, Mika – PRIMUS, 2005

This article describes the Field Trip Assignment, which was developed for a mathematics modeling course for prospective teachers. The objective of the assignment was to motivate students to make connections between mathematics and real-life phenomena while considering how to make those connections explicit to their future students. For the Field…

Buck, Robert E. – PRIMUS, 2004

One of the major problems facing education today is the inadequate mathematics' preparation of pre-college students and their teachers. Most colleges and universities have well established programs for students planning to teach mathematics at the secondary schools; however, in many institutions pre-secondary mathematics has been addressed only…
