ab: Summary: Preservice Secondary Mathematics Teachers (PSMTs) were surveyed to
identify if they could connect early-secondary mathematics content
(Grades 7‒9) in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
(CCSSM) with mathematics content studied in content courses for
certification in secondary teacher preparation programs. Respondents
were asked to identify college-level mathematics courses they had taken
in their preparation programs that specifically addressed connections
to early-secondary school mathematics content in the CCSSM. The
analysis of the results specifically focuses on PSMTs’ inability to
self-identify connections between this CCSSM content and college-level
mathematics coursework. In this study, the goal that content coursework
for teachers emphasize visible connections between the content PSMTs
will teach and mathematics coursework in preservice preparation
programs was seemingly not achieved.
