Subject: History
One of my teaching assignments for this year will be to teach math

history to a group of primarily pre-service grades 4-9 mathematics

teachers. I'm excited about this but am asking for some input concerning

content for the course, textbook, resources, ways to make this material

relevant to these students given math background and future ambitions to

teach math in the middle grades. These students will have a background

in our standard el. ed. math courses, algebra/trig, introductory

statistics, finite math, and at least two quarters of calculus.

Please send any ideas or positive suggestions via private e-mail to

t-roepke@onu.edu. Thanks in advance for your help.
