In this poster paper we present findings from a study that investigated the extent to which the content topics of the mathematics pedagogy module taught at a major university in Saudi Arabia matched the topics of the elementary school mathematics curriculum.

Abstract

Research has revealed that there can be a mismatch between what is taught to undergraduate elementary pre-service teachers during their teacher preparation and what they subsequently teach in elementary school mathematics. In this poster paper we present findings from a study that investigated the extent to which the content topics of the mathematics pedagogy module taught at a major university in Saudi Arabia matched the topics of the elementary school mathematics curriculum. The findings indicate that the module gave heavy emphasis to elementary school number and moderate emphasis to geometry. There was little emphasis on elementary school algebra and data topics.
