Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6 - 12Aby Randall E. Groth explores how research in mathematics education can inform teaching practice in grades 6-12. The author shows preservice mathematics teachers the value of being a aresearcher-constantly experimenting with methods for developing students mathematical thinking-and connecting this research to practices that enhance studentsa understanding of the material. Ultimately, preservice teachers will gain a deeper understanding of the types of mathematical knowledge students bring to school, and how studentsa thinking may develop in response to different teaching strategies.
