BIBLIOGRAPHY OF USEFUL ARTICLES FOR AMTE MEMBERS

Within this Useful Articles section, you will find a bibliography of articles that one or more AMTE members has recommended because they discuss important issues in the preparation and development of mathematics teachers and mathematics teacher educators. This is not an exhaustive list. Rather it is a list of articles that some AMTE members have found useful in teaching their courses. We hope that other members might also find these articles useful. The articles are grouped under the following headings:

If a member has a suggestion for an article that should be added to this bibliography, please contact Research Committee Member, Tonya Gau Bartell.
