Developing Spatial Sense and Communication Skills Reflect and Discuss

Kerri Richardson, Catherine Stein 

September 2008, Volume 14, Issue 2, Page 101

Abstract:
How spatial instruction with preservice teachers can be implemented in a middle-grades mathematics methods class. The preservice teachers noticed that the students started used terms and speaking more "mathematically" because they were making connection with their prior knowledge. A "Reflect and Discuss" section is included for professional development study.
