Research into pedagogical ‘belief statements’ held by pre-ITE students on a Mathematics Enhancement Course
Clarke, John 2008. Research into pedagogical ‘belief statements’ held by pre-ITE students on a Mathematics Enhancement Course. Informal Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM). 28 (3), pp. 13-17.
In this paper I will present the results from a small-scale research project undertaken with a group of pre-Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Mathematics Enhancement Course (MEC) students at the University of East London between January and July 2008. The emerging results are in their early stages of development and are a continuation of the results addressed in a paper presented to the British Educational Research Association (BERA) Conference in September 2008 (Clarke 2008). They appear to show some evidence that participation in a MEC, and hence exposure to a variety of teaching approaches, does change "beliefs" concerning the way in which participants think mathematics should be taught.
