ab: Summary: We describe several service-learning initiatives implemented by
the mathematics and education departments. College students with majors
and minors in math and math education have helped to design and
implement math events for elementary and middle school students. Formal
and informal reflections on these service-related experiences have
demonstrated the potential impact on future teaching and learning goals
for the pre-service teachers. College students taking a statistics
course have analyzed data from some of these math events, using both
descriptive and inferential methods. Teachers of participating
elementary and middle schools have re-examined their textbook and
curriculum choices in light of their studentsâ€™ performance at these
math events.
