  • How can one establish a link between the kind of mathematics and the role of mathematical experiences of pre-service teachers?
  • What are innovative approaches of developing mathematical content knowledge of pre-service mathematics teachers?

Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS). 2001.The Mathematical Education of Teachers. Washington, D. C.: MAA.

“College courses … should make connections between the mathematics being studied and mathematics prospective teachers will teach” (p. 7).

slide4

CBMS, 2001

Capstone course idea:

helping prospective teachers “make insightful connections between the advanced mathematics they are learning and high school mathematics they will be teaching” (p. 39).

slide5

Connections across the curriculum

By listening to prospective teachers’ ideas, mathematics educators can develop learning environments that help the teachers make connections across the K-16 curriculum

slide6

How can elementary mathematics concepts motivate learning environments for the secondary classroom?

An answer is in using one’s knowledge of hidden concepts and structures of mathematics to make connections across the curriculum.

Abramovich, S. and P. Brouwer. (2007). How to show one-fourth? Uncovering hidden context through reciprocal learning. International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 38(6), 779-795.

slide8

HIDDEN MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM

A didactic space for the learning of mathematics where seemingly unrelated concepts emerge to become intrinsically connected by a common underlying thread

Technological tools allow for the development of entries into this space for prospective teachers of mathematics

slide9

DIDACTICAL PHENOMENOLOGY OF MATHEMATICS:

“A way to show the teacher the places where the learner might step into the learning process of mankind”

H. Freudenthal. (1983).

slide10

Learning by Transaction

Learning is a transactional process of developing informed entrants into a culture with the assistance of more advanced agents of the culture

J. Bruner (1985)

Learning by transaction creates the Zone of Proximal Development

L. S. Vygotsky (1978)

slide11

Theoretical framework for reciprocal learning

Mathematical knowledge is a combination of action, operation, and reflection (von Glasersfeld, 1995)

Mathematical teaching is a process through which both students and teachers learn

In particular, it is possible for teachers to learn from students (Steffe, 1991)

Possible learning environments (PLE)

Possible learning environment – “a conceptual generalization a teacher can use in the creation of learning environments”

Steffe, L.P. 1991. The constructivist teaching experiment. In E. von Glasersfeld (ed.), Radical Constructivism in Mathematics Education.

Illustrating “the way in which software can embody a mathematical definition” (CBMS, 2001, p. 132).

PLE 2: Making connections through measurement

The Golden Ratio and pentagons

a pedagogical implication

A pedagogical implication:

A capstone course for pre-service secondary teachers can be built by uncovering the hidden context of the fundamental ideas of elementary mathematics

concluding remarks

Concluding remarks

Mathematics educators should listen to pre- teachers and take their ideas seriously

PLEs can be developed to help pre-teachers make connections across the curriculum

Technology use can motivate mathematical learning

Each day, try to teach something that you didn’t know the day before

The unity of history, mathematics and technology addresses the CBMS recommendations for the preparation of teachers
