ab: Summary: A task-based lesson serves as the organizing principle for a
university mathematics content course for future elementary teachers.
The course, which provides the first semester of a year-long sequence,
covers the arithmetic of numbers. The daily classroom activities follow
a Japanese-style lesson plan and use tasks developed through a
didactical phenomenological analysis. A situated learning perspective
frames an understanding of the classroom activity. The goals for using
and the criteria for developing task-based lesson materials are
discussed and an example of an actual classroom lesson is provided to
illustrate the power of this instructional approach.
