Supplementary Materials for AMTE Standards

This set of materials provide activities and tasks for mathematics teacher educators and programs to make direct connections to the AMTE Standards, and can be implemented in mathematics content or methods courses.  The materials have been reviewed by the AMTE Publications Review and Professional Development committees to ensure strong alignment with the AMTE Standards.

Enhancing Statistics Teacher Education through E-Modules

The ESTEEM materials focus primarily on developing secondary teacher learners’ pedagogical knowledge for teaching statistics and assume that learning from the materials already have basic subject matter knowledge of statistics (e.g., measures of center, measures of variability, statistical graphs).
