Facilitating the teaching of space mathematics: An evaluation. (English)
Pateman, Neil A. et al., Proceedings of the 27th Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education held jointly with the 25th Conference of PME-NA. Vol. 1-4. ,. 339-345 (2003).
The evaluation of an implementation of a NSW teacher development program considered whether a system-led curriculum change for the teaching of the space (pre-geometry) strand of mathematics changed teachers’ knowledge about space mathematics and how to teach it and confidence about the teaching of space mathematics. The study identified the role of school facilitators and the comprehensive support package as effective features of the teachers’ professional development. The package included the purpose for teaching space written in terms of students’ expected learning, background theoretical notes, assessment tasks, lesson plans, and supporting videotapes.
