Title: Teaching Math for Elementary School Teachers Through Observation and Inquiry
Abstract: Enjoyment of mathematics cannot be taught, but it can be learned if it is not already a part of someone's world view. Encouraging it was an important learning outcome in my course on mathematics for elementary school teachers. We used "Math in the City" videos of children learning mathematics to introduce mathematical concepts that preservice teachers go on to investigate in our course. I will discuss how to integrate the activities to support my learning outcomes of increased confidence and enjoyment of mathematics.
