ab: This study involved 25 undergraduate mathematics specialists who are
planning to teach at the K-9 level. We examined both their beliefs
about learning and teaching mathematics and their reasoning strategies.
Findings suggest that students whose reported beliefs reflect an
internal locus of mathematical authority and an importance placed on
understanding in a mathematics learning community are more successful
in developing their reasoning strategies. (Abstract)
