Bingolbali, E.; Ozmantar, M. F. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009
In this article we focus on university lecturers' approaches to the service teaching and factors that influence their approaches. We present data obtained from the interviews with 19 mathematics and three physics lecturers along with the observations of two mathematics lecturers' calculus courses. The findings show that lecturers' approaches to…

Sherin, Miriam Gamoran; Linsenmeier, Katherine A.; van Es, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2009
This study explores the use of video clips from teachers' own classrooms as a resource for investigating student mathematical thinking. Three dimensions for characterizing video clips of student mathematical thinking are introduced: the extent to which a clip provides "windows" into student thinking, the "depth" of thinking…

Bouck, Emily C.; Flanagan, Sara M. – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2010
Research on the positive impact of using concrete manipulatives in mathematics for students with high-incidence disabilities is clear. Maccini and Gagnon (2000) considered manipulatives to be a best practice in terms of educating students with high-incidence disabilities in mathematics. It would follow, then, that research on virtual manipulatives…

Nickerson, Susan D.; Masarik, Diane K. – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2010
A cohort of middle school mathematics teachers in the U.S. participated in a two-year professional development program that focused on developing a deeper conceptual understanding of the mathematics of middle school with connections to instructional practice. We assessed the teachers' developing interpretive power, specifically developing…

Kramarski, Bracha – Metacognition and Learning, 2008
This study investigates algebraic reasoning and self-regulation skills among elementary school teachers who participated in a professional development program either with IMPROVE metacognitive questioning (PD + Meta) or with no metacognitive guidance (PD). Sixty-four Israeli teachers participated in a 3-year program designed to enhance…

Fosnot, Catherine Twomey; Jacob, Bill – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2010
This book provides a landscape of learning that helps teachers recognize, support, and celebrate their students' capacity to structure their worlds algebraically. It identifies the models, contexts, and landmarks that facilitate algebraic thinking in young students and provides insightful and practical methods for teachers, math supervisors, and…

Collinson, Vivienne; Kozina, Ekaterina; Lin, Yu-Hao Kate; Ling, Lorraine; Matheson, Ian; Newcombe, Liz; Zogla, Irena – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2009
As the industrialised world shifted to an interdependent and global society, formal schooling was quickly recognised as a major factor in achieving a knowledge society of lifelong learners capable of transforming and revitalising organisations. Teachers were encouraged to engage in learning together to improve teaching and, by extension, improve…

Bottino, Rosa Maria; Robotti, Elisabetta – Educational Technology & Society, 2007
The paper discusses the results of a research project based on the field testing of a course aimed at developing arithmetic problem solving skills in primary school pupils. The course was designed to incorporate e-learning techniques, including the use of ARI@ITALES authoring tools. These tools allowed the integration in the course of…

White, Allan – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2007
This paper examines the similarities and differences between two successful programmes of teacher professional learning. Firstly, Lesson Study developed in Japan over 40 years ago. It examines practice either through direct observation or through classroom artefacts and case studies. It assumes that teacher learning will be more meaningful and…

Indiana Department of Education, 2004
To ensure all students have every opportunity to succeed, Indiana adopted world-class academic standards in English-language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies and an assessment system to measure student progress. These standards clearly outline what students should know and be able to do in each subject, at each grade level. This…

Hsu, Ying-Shao; Wu, Hsin-Kai; Hwang, Fu-Kwun – Educational Technology & Society, 2007
Sandholtz, Ringstaff, & Dwyer (1996) list five stages in the "evolution" of a teacher's capacity for computer-based instruction--entry, adoption, adaptation, appropriation and invention--which hereafter will be called the teacher's computer-based instructional evolution. In this study of approximately six hundred junior high school…

Sulaiman, Tajularipin; Noordin, Nooreen – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
The purpose of this research was to examine the extent to which teachers use question levels in the teaching of investigation skills. Six question levels based on Bloom's Taxonomy (1956) were examined in this study which included knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and affective as well (Ghazali Mustapha, 1998).…
