Impact of Poincare Mathematics Project on Teacher Instruction

Abstract

"This presentation begins with a brief overview of the Poincar Mathematics project, with a focus on how this on-line targeted MSP institute engages teachers in classroom applications of Algebra concepts and promotes discussion of instructional strategies. The presentation will then examine how the on-line course pedagogy has impacted teachers' instructional strategies. We will present results of pre-post and follow-up class observations of the Algebra lessons of 48 teachers who were part of the first Poincar cohort. Findings include impacts on teachers' questioning, types and extent of student-centered activities and level of student engagement. The presentation will examine how long it takes for instructional effects to take hold in teachers' regular classroom practice. Audience participation will be encouraged."
