Impact of Mathematics Courses for Prospective Teachers on their Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching
Bowers, David Matthew

2016, Master of Mathematical Sciences, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
This project examines the impact of a mathematics course for prospective elementary teachers and a mathematics course for prospective middle school teachers on those enrolled in their respective courses using a pre-post test methodology. Prospective teachers were asked to take tests, designed by the Learning Mathematics for Teaching project, which claim to measure mathematical knowledge for teaching. Results indicate that the courses positively impacted the mathematical knowledge of prospective teachers. Examination of the results on clusters of items covering specific topics provides additional insight into how these courses are impacting prospective teachers and how they might be modified as a part of ongoing course improvement efforts.
