An Adaptive Model for Supporting Shifts in Secondary Precalculus Instruction and Student Learning
Abstract"The Pathways Precalculus Professional Development Model (P3DM) includes focused workshops for teachers, student curriculum and instructor support materials. Our research to scale Pathways to all teachers within a school and district have revealed new challenges, while supporting past results of the importance of sustained interventions to develop teacher's Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT). This session will engage participants in an activity to illustrate the process by which teachers acquire MKT, and how a teacher's emerging pedagogical conceptions and knowledge of the content impacts her instructional choices and classroom interactions. We will also report on the wide variation we have observed in teachers' knowledge, school leadership, and parental support, and how we are responding to these variations in scaling Pathways."
