Assessment of the Mathematical Knowledge of Students of the Faculty of Primary School Education
In order to review our teaching we have carried out research to assess the fundamental mathematical knowledge of would be primary school teachers at our Faculty. This study was also made necessary by the modification of the present teaching schedule. During the assessment we also tried to examine the effect our teaching training has on our students to inquire more thoroughly the problem solving techniques and methods necessary for teaching primary school mathematics. During the assessment we have found that although the results are better for higher year students, even they do not reach the level we have expected. In our opinion, further improvement can be reached if in the teaching schedule we can stress more the acquisition and teaching of practical knowledge.
