Seeing the Connections: Promoting Profound Understanding of Secondary Mathematics is a collaboration of the University of New Hampshire, Stony Brook University, and Education Development Center. The Seeing the Connections staff will produce, pilot, and disseminate curriculum modules for use in mathematics courses that help preservice teachers develop a knowledge of mathematics for teaching. Building on successful NSFfunded proofofconcept projects, the Seeing the Connections curriculum will help secondary teachers develop important mathematical knowledge and skills required in their future careersdesigning effective lessons, emphasizing certain ideas over others, connecting ideas across the grades, understanding germs of insight in students' questions, and placing topics in the precollege curriculum in the broader mathematical landscape.
The project staff, combining extensive expertise in curriculum development, undergraduate and secondary teaching, teacher preparation and professional development, and education research, will create and make widely available (in paper and electronic formats) a library of materials that can be used in a wide range of preservice and inservice environments.
The following
proofofconcept projects (funded by NSF) serve as
the basis for the Seeing the Connections
project. Click on a project for more
