*Understanding the mathematical understandings*

* of prospective secondary mathematics teachers: Some results and observations*

*Speaker:*

**Penn State University**

A Penn State team working in the context of the Mid-Atlantic Center for Mathematics Teaching and Learning has created courses to help secondary mathematics teachers think about mathematics related to the curricular demands of "reform" high school mathematics. In that context, the team is investigating the mathematical understandings of prospective secondary mathematics teachers. This session will describe some of our initial observations of these students' mathematical understandings and ways of thinking.
