Mathematics teaching from a different point of view
Jones, Keith (1994) Mathematics teaching from a different point of view. Mathematics Education Review, 5, 10-17.
It has been acknowledged for some considerable time that pupils experience mathematics across the curriculum. Teachers, however, seem rarely to get such an opportunity to see and reflect upon how mathematics is taught and learnt across different subject areas. In this article I will relate what a group of non-mathematics secondary PGCE students thought of the mathematics teaching in their placement schools. I conclude that by experiencing other subjects, not only do the student teachers benefit from a broader perspective on teaching but also that curriculum areas such as mathematics benefit from seeing their subject from a different point of view.
