Teacher Education

(IN CONSTRUCTION- Come back June 28th)

Our research has also taken us more recently to include a focus on mathematics teacher education. One could see this as a response to the newer needs (since 2020) in our jurisdiction to prepare mathematics teachers to integrate coding in their Gr. 1-9 mathematics teaching (see here).

One of the work we have undertaken concerns the re-design of a programming-based mathematics courses focused on pure or applied inquiry projects specifically offered to future mathematics teachers. Our research also aims at focusing on the future teachers’ learning in this course.

Here is some preliminary work and resources:

  • Course design to be discussed at INDRUM 2022,  including how it aims to address the second of “Klein’s double discontinuity” (2-page poster proposal and poster)
  • Future teachers’ documentational genesis to be discussed at PME 2022 (1-page poster proposal proposal and poster)

Selected (Re-designed) 2022 Course Material:

  • Project and lab guidelines
  • List of readings

Future teachers’ collaborative final projects in collaboration with local teachers for the preparation and implementation of a coding and math activity in the Gr 5-9 classroom:
