Addressing the Problem of Basic Computational Abilities in a Teacher Education Program, als mathdidak


28.10.2013, 13.00 -

M614 Mathematikgebäude 6. Etage
A severe weakness in computational skills and understandings has been found among pre-service students in our Teacher Education Program. What to do about this problem? The talk will present some data showing the seriousness of the problem and then describe and discuss how the problem has been addressed, with some success. There will also be a discussion of the factors that have led to this difficulty. Problems similar to Arithmetic will be discussed with respect to geometry and algebra.
