Mathematics teacher education at the University of Calgary


This study aims to improve the different courses on mathematics education offered by the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary. The school of education offers several courses for teachers, both prospective and practicing, related to teaching mathematics. Lately, and in response to the Alberta Education focus on improving mathematics instruction at K to 12, the school of education has developed two 4-course topics at the Master's level, and one course joint with the Mathematics and Statistics Department at the undergraduate level. The purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of these courses on current and future teachers. The findings of the study would inform reviews of the courses related to mathematics education offered by the school of education.
