ab: Summary: In order to help students learn mathematics with understanding,
which requires teaching mathematics through problem solving, teachers
should provide their students with challenging mathematical problems.
Thus, one responsibility of teacher education programs is to guarantee
that future teachers develop the necessary knowledge and skills for
preparing high-quality tasks that promote complex mathematical
thinking. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness
of a mathematics teaching methods course primarily through analyzing
the quality of problems that prospective teachers prepared. Interviews
were also conducted for a detailed understanding of the role of methods
course in supporting the development of prospective teachers’
competencies.
