ab: Investigated how a mathematics pedagogy course challenged teaching
assistantsâ€™ (TAsâ€™) beliefs about the teaching and learning of
mathematics and informed their teaching practice. Found that TAs
adopted a different set of beliefs about the teaching and learning of
mathematics and that several constraints (institutional, cultural, a
lack of appropriate models of teaching) acted as barriers prohibiting
instructional change. (ERIC)
