Abstract: This multiple case study provides a lens into the ways three prospective elementary school teachers (PSTs) engaged in online discussion blogs when exploring the geometric concepts of area and perimeter. The online discussion blog protocol utilized reform-based instruction consistent with social constructivism. Through collaborative discussion and negotiation, these PSTs refined, reconsidered, or modified their views about teaching and learning mathematics.
