Abstract: A course for prospective secondary mathematics teachers was developed at the University of Delaware, based on professional recommendations to integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in the preparation of teachers of mathematics. Students used GeoGebra, Cabri3D, and Mathematica to model phenomena in the physical, natural and social sciences. They used motion sensors and graphing calculators to study motion. They wrote Python programs to simulate random phenomena. They built a robot and controlled it with a computer program, and made explicit the mathematical and scientific concepts involved in the functioning of the robot. Several forms of formative and summative assessment were conducted during the course. Teachers learned alternative ways of looking at mathematical concepts, and established connections in mathematics and with other areas.
