Abstract

to provide guidance for students hired to teach the PRAXIS I Math Workshop. In order to be admitted to Teacher Education at Northern Illinois University, the College of Education requires that students pass all three sections {math, reading, and writing} of the standardized, norm-referenced PRAXIS I: Academic Skills Assessments {PRAXIS I}. The guide provides instructional materials to teach students to solve typical math problems. The guide includes "Basic Information" on overheads which provides problems selected for instruction that will aide in teaching specific strategies for certain problem types. Included are example geometry, measurement, probability, percent, and age and work word problems. Also provided are explanations for solving the example problems. The guide also includes four example tests and answer keys with explanations. The tests and answer keys were developed to assess students' understanding and to be used for practice and review prior to their actual PRAXIS I math exam. The example test may also be used for tutoring purposes.
