How Pre Service Elementary School Teachers’ Mathematical Dispositions are Influenced by School Mathematics
C. Adam Feldhaus

The National Research Council (2001, 2009) includes a productive disposition toward mathematics as a key component to mathematical proficiency, and researchers have discovered that the mathematical dispositions of elementary school teachers have an impact on the mathematical dispositions of their students. Working from this relationship between disposition and mathematics achievement, this paper will examine how four preservice elementary school teachers formed their mathematical dispositions, focusing on the experiences that the preservice teachers believed were integral to forming those dispositions.
