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)

Masingila, Joanna O.; Moellwald, Francisco Egger – School Science and Mathematics, 1993

Presents a model that relates Polya's ideas on problem solving to teaching practices that help create a mathematics learning environment in which students are actively involved in doing mathematics. Illustrates the model utilizing a high school geometry problem that asks students to measure the width of a river. (MDH)

Kouba, Vicky L. – School Science and Mathematics, 1989

Explores whether the differences in use of terminology were related to respective fields or to idiosyncratic characteristics of experience and education. Reports differences among college teachers, high school teachers, and college students from a 16-item survey on algebraic and graphing terminology used in mathematics and science. (YP)

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)
