The TIMSS report leads to some strong conclusions concerning the effectiveness of various approaches for teaching mathematics and science in grades K-8. This presentation will focus on a description of the ﬁndings of TlMSS concerning effective teaching. Although the TIMSS study and its ﬁndings relate directly to teaching prior to college, the ﬁndings do have a lot to say about effective teaching at the college level. At the very least, they describe the type of teaching and learning that future teachers must experience if they are to bring about this type of learning in their own courses.
