ab: Summary: The authors have experience with secondary mathematics teacher
candidates struggling to make connections between the theoretical
abstract algebra course they take as college students and the algebra
they will be teaching in secondary schools. As a mathematician and a
mathematics educator, the authors collaborated to create and implement
a three-semester project to help secondary mathematics teacher
candidates inform their teaching using abstract algebra.
