Abstract

This study exposed early childhood pre-service teachers to robotics and help them teach mathematics with robots. People tend to treat not only themselves but also others within the scope of the stereotypes that they experienced. Stereotypical conceptions about certain subjects and occupations are formed in early life. The cycle of stereotype threats could be broken by exposing early childhood pre-service teachers to robotics that requires them to build and program robots and design of mathematics lessons using robots.
