Eric.ed.gov – Math and Careers. Module 1. MATHCO Teacher’s Guide.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

MATHCO is a motivating series of audiovisual and print materials designed to overcome the negative effects of sex bias and stereotyping on the attitudes, interests, and aspirations of girls toward mathematics and mathematics-related careers. The materials teach mathematics skills, demonstrate relationships between mathematics and other subjects, and provide exposure to mathematics-related careers. They are useful for boys as well as girls at the pre- and early-adolescent stage; they are both multiethnic and nonsexist in text and illustrations. Following a summary of materials, program objectives, how to use MATHCO, and a sample time line, background information on sexism in schools, sex stereotyping in mathematics textbooks, teacher behaviors, and other factors affecting the mathematics attainment of females is given. Mathematics anxiety and avoidance is discussed, as are sex-related differences in achievement and performance. What teachers can do is noted. Module 1 is then developed, with an overview, an audiovisual script, a questionnaire with a prediction guide, and suggestions for displaying wall charts. (MNS)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
