Teacher Development And Student Learning


"We describe and evaluate a teacher development program for in-service teachers in grades 5 to 9. The program focuses on functional relations and their multiple representations as a thread throughout the mathematics curriculum, integrating a wide range of topics commonly treated in an isolated fashion. It encourages teachers to consider students' own representations and mathematical ideas. Classroom observations and mandated assessment results show a substantial improvement in participating teachers' ways of teaching and on their students' learning."
