August 27, 2009 Dear Principal or Teacher, The bearer of this letter, _____________________________, is a student in my mathematics course, Math 105 Concepts in Mathematics, Probability, and Statistics , at San Jose State University. He/She is seeking a mentor teacher to oversee a field experience in a local elementary or middle school (6 th , 7 th , or 8 th grades) setting. Math 105 is the second of three courses in the SJSU Mathematics Department taken by all undergraduate students pursuin g bachelor’s degrees in preparation for a teaching credential program. As part of their learning experience in this course, I would like my students to observe and/or participate in three mathematics lessons in a pre- algebra or algebra class during the fall semester.

The purpose of this assignment is to expose my students to the mathematical concepts, processes, and pedagogy that are currently being employed in typical school settings, and to introduce them to current school cultures and expectations of teachers. It would be most helpful if you would assist my student in setting up his/her field experience, perhaps with an introduction to a possible mentor teacher or a suggestion for a particularly valuable middle school setting. I sincerely appreciate your time and effort on behalf of my student. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (812) 606-5006 or (650) 969-6020 or [email protected] .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
