Title of Project:

A Reformed-Based Model Classroom for Teaching and Learning Mathematics at The University of XYZ  


Abstract (Do Not Exceed 250 Words)

This proposal supports the long range math teaching improvement vision of The University of XYZ. The Department of Mathematics recommends establishing a reform-based model classroom for teaching and learning mathematics. The Department plans to adapt existing courses and to create new curriculum to comply with the state’s new teacher certification structure and to best meet the needs of our future teachers. This proposal will provide an avenue for:

  1. enhancing the instructional resources of the Department of Mathematics and

  2. better preparing preservice and inservice teachers to promote student learning through standards-based mathematics curriculum.

Mandatory mathematics courses for elementary education majors, including existing courses and certification courses, will be taught in the reform-based model classroom. Staff instructors for the courses will be experienced mathematics faculty who serve on the PK-16 Mathematics Redesign Council and who embrace the delivery of reform-based instruction. Mathematics and education advisors will collaborate in planning their specific courses and will jointly deliver instruction in a team teaching approach. Faculty will continue to work with local education organizations to establish and deliver professional development programs for their teachers utilizing the model classroom for delivery of those programs.

Our reform-based model classroom will be fitted with tables and chairs to enable collaborative learning, computers with Internet capability to incorporate real-world applications into mathematics instruction, manipulatives to increase conceptual comprehension, and books of children’s literature to develop multi-disciplinary teaching. All of these materials will be engaged to model a reform-based instructional approach for the teaching of mathematics.
