Resources for Preparing Middle School Mathematics Teachers
Cheryl Beaver, Laurie Burton, Maria Fung, and Klay Kruczek, Editors
|Middle school mathematics teachers occupy a unique place in the mathematical development of students. These teachers need to be proficient in all elementary mathematics topics, together with some secondary mathematics topics. The Mathematics Education of Teachers (MET) document published by the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences set forth criteria for the preparation of mathematics middle school teachers which made it critical that special programs and courses for this group emerge.
This collection of articles is in response to the MET document and the result of several gatherings of mathematics educators and mathematicians training middle school teachers. This volume is for faculty members who are new to teaching courses for middle school mathematics teachers or for seasoned teachers of pre-service teachers who are interested in trying new approaches, and perhaps starting a middle school program at their institution.
