Stump, Sheryl L. – School Science and Mathematics, 2010
An undergraduate seminar was designed to help preservice teachers focus on students' learning. Preservice teachers planned and conducted weekly tutoring sessions with fourth graders and discussed their experiences in weekly discussions. The author investigated what preservice teachers learned about teaching mathematics from their focus on…

Ross, John A.; Xu, YunMei; Ford, John – School Science and Mathematics, 2008
Previous research (e.g., Woodward & Baxter, 1997) found that Standards-based mathematics teaching provides marginal or no benefits for low achievers, in contrast with positive effects for middle and high ability students. A randomized quasi-experiment in 52 Canadian schools found that low achieving grade 7 and 8 students who received support…

Son, Ji-Won; Sinclair, Nathalie – School Science and Mathematics, 2010
Recognizing and responding to students' thinking is essential in teaching mathematics, especially when students provide incorrect solutions. This study examined, through a teaching scenario task, elementary preservice teachers' interpretations of and responses to a student's work on a task involving reflective symmetry. Findings revealed that a…

Bell, Elizabeth S.; Bell, Ronald N. – School Science and Mathematics, 1985
termined that students who completed writing assignments on mathematics problems were better problem solvers than students in control groups, supporting the contention that expository writing is an effective, practical, and innovative tool for problem solving. (Sample problems and writing assignments are included.) (DH)

Mayer, Victor J.; Fortner, Rosanne – School Science and Mathematics, 1986
Stamps were used in a study which assumed that the frequency with which topics (in this case the water environment and its characteristics) were depicted on stamps would be a reflection of the interest that society as a whole held for that topic. Implications for science teaching are addressed. (JN)
