Abstract

Simon (1993) suggests that the conceptual weaknesses which prospective teachers exhibit are obstacles for these teachers to appropriately teach concepts and procedures to students. In addition, one of the sources of mathematics anxiety that future teachers cite is not feeling prepared or being knowledgeable enough in the mathematics that they may someday need to teach. As part of a number of interventions to reduce math anxiety among our elementary education majors (see Holodick & Reboli, SITE 2002), King's College has explored the various tutorials that are available on the internet. This paper lists a number of the websites available and reviews their potential use in a mathematics methods classroom, particularly in light of the recommendations made by Taplin & James (1994).
