This timely book highlights the need to reconceptualise Maths and Science Teacher Education Programs (ReMSTEP) in order to revitalise Mathematics and Science teaching approaches within primary and secondary schools. Through a series of seven ‘innovations’, such as offering Mathematics and Science specialisations within primary pre-service teaching programs, or creating opportunities to connect scientists and mathematicians with both pre-service teachers and practitioners in developing activities for school contexts, ReMSTEP recognises that teacher graduates are powerful change agents for making maths and science curricula more engaging, challenging and relevant for primary and secondary students.
