ab: Summary: I recently had the opportunity to teach a developmental
mathematics class at a community college, something a little different
from what I usually do as a mathematics teacher educator at a
university. I welcomed the chance to examine the curriculum and try
some new approaches. In particular, I wanted to explore the development
of some fundamental ideas and look for ways to promote studentsâ€™
mathematical understanding. I entered the experience in a spirit of
inquiry, seeking insights in relation to questions such as the
following: What kinds of tasks can engage community college students in
developing their mathematical understanding? What are the challenges to
the students? What are the challenges to the instructor? (ERIC)
