Abstract:The purpose of this study is to investigate if the academic preparation received at a private university in Puerto Rico prepares elementary 4th to 6th grade teacher candidates to teach mathematics as required by the reform of mathematics education. This case study used various qualitative techniques and instruments in the collection of data, such as, (a) protocols of semi-structured interviews for the student-teachers and the professors; (b) protocols of observation of the teaching-learning processes of the future teachers and the participating professors; and (c) the guide for the revision of documents related to curricular reform, and the components for the preparation of mathematics teacher candidates. Data analyses were based on the model proposed by Harry F. Wolcott (description, analysis and interpretation). Classroom observations were analyzed using the Protocol of Observation of Educational Processes (Appendix C), which is a translated version of the Reformed Teaching Observation Protocol (RTOP). Furthermore, the results of the PCMAS (2006) were also revised for qualitative data analyses. The major findings of the study evidenced a lack of relationship between the reform and the foundations of the program with the preparation to teach mathematics and the skills that are expected of future teachers to develop in students. Furthermore, it was revealed that professors and future teachers are unaware of the theoretical foundations, the purposes, strategies and educational practices suggested in the Curricular Reform. The results also allow concluding that the program lacks the necessary elements for future teaches to acquire mastery and to manage fluently and with assurance the discipline of mathematics as indicated in the professional standards for Curricular Reform.
