Encouraging Preservice Mathematics Teachers as Mathematicians

Elizabeth Burroughs 

March 2007, Volume 100, Issue 7, Page 464

Abstract:
An assignment that asks preservice secondary mathematics teachers to make connections between the mathematics they know and the mathematics they will teach. It describes how one preservice teacher's project resulted in a physical representation of the statement and proof that the sum of cubes of the first n natural numbers is equal to the square of their sum.
