document Math Methods for Preservice Elementary Teachers

814 downloads

The main audience for this short book is faculty who teach a Math Methods course for preservice elementary education teachers. I believe that most faculty who teach the Mathematics for Elementary Teachers course (most often taught in math departments) will also benefit from the book.

I have a third audience in mind. Please consider sharing this book with students taking a Math Methods course or a Math for Elementary Teachers course.

The book gives particular emphasis to three topics:
  1. Prerequisites for students and preparation of their faculty.
  2. Learning and teaching problem solving both in math and also “across the curriculum”
  3. Integration of Computer and Information Science into teaching, learning, doing, and using math.

The book, Project-Based Learning Using Information Technology, was originally published by the International Society for Technology in Education. The copyright was returned to its author David Moursund in January, 2016. You can now download a free copy of the book in PDF or Microsoft Word format.

This book is about project-based learning (PBL) in an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) environment. The book is designed for teachers who want to implement PBL using ICT in their classrooms. Teachers who do this will gain increased understanding of ICT alongside their students.

PBL has long been a teaching tool of many teachers. PBL is enhanced by routine use of ICT, so it is now a vehicle for learning “traditional” subject matter content and for learning how to use ICT effectively. The overarching goal of this book is to help students learn to use their minds (higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills) and ICT effectively as they plan and carry out complex projects.
