Integrating the Assessment Principle into Mathematics Content Courses for Preservice Elementary Teachers

Grants and Contracts Details


We propose a way of addressing a key question which asks how can professors teach mathematics for teaching and how can our students learn the mathematics for teaching in grades K-5. The ultimate goals of our long term project are to integrate the standards and principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) into the content and methods courses for elementary school teachers at the University of Kentucky, to increase the opportunity for collaboration between mathematics and mathematics education faculty, and to do so in a way that is transportable to other institutions. We will disseminate these ideas for adoption both regionally (especially in Fayette County and Appalachia) and nationally. This eighteen month project is the beginning phase of a longer program.
