November 2008, Volume 14, Issue 4, Page 196

Abstract:
A semester-long pen-pal project in which preservice teachers composed mathematical problems and the middle school students worked for solutions. The college students assessed the solution and the middle school students provided feedback regarding the problem itself. This activity fit well into Standards-based classrooms as well as within the constraints of the college semester.
