Duchhardt, Christoph; Jordan, Anne-Katrin; Ehmke, Timo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) has recently drawn additional attention to "mathematical literacy" as an important influential factor for individuals' life chances. High levels of mathematical literacy have thereby been linked to using mathematics in daily and working life frequently. In this…

Garner, Mary L.; Watson, Virginia; Rogers, Beth; Head, Catherine – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Math teachers' circles are a form of professional development that is recommended by the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences in their publication Mathematical Education of Teachers II (2012). However, little research has been published on how effective math teachers' circles are in advancing the mathematical knowledge of teachers and…

Schukajlow, S.; Kaiser, G.; Stillman, G. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
The teaching and learning of mathematical modelling is an important research field all over the world. In this paper we present a survey of the state-of-the-art on empirical studies in this field. We analyse the development of studies focusing on cognitive aspects of the promotion of modelling, i.e. the promotion of modelling abilities resp.…

Saran, Rupam – Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, 2018
Contextualized in an urban college's teacher education program and its partnership inner-city elementary schools, this qualitative study explores the impact of lesson study on the emergence of a stronger pedagogical content knowledge on mathematics teaching practices of minority preservice teachers. Aiming to raise the mathematics achievement of…

Sriraman, Bharath; Dickman, Benjamin – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper, the role of mathematical pathologies as a means of fostering creativity in the classroom is discussed. In particular, it delves into what constitutes a mathematical pathology, examines historical mathematical pathologies as well as pathologies in contemporary classrooms, and indicates how the Lakatosian heuristic can be used to…

MacDonald, Amy; Fenton, Angela; Davidson, Christina – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2018
This article reports on a qualitative pilot study which documented the ways in which young children and their families "notice," "explore," and "talk about" mathematical concepts and processes as they participate in family shopping experiences. Six families, with children ranging from 12 months to 10 years, were…

Eddy, Colleen M.; Kuehnert, Eloise Aniag – American Educational History Journal, 2018
The purpose of this paper is to account for the advancement of questioning in mathematics education. Four sections focus on: (1) Importance of Questioning in Education (a historical perspective of questioning from the 1960s through the 1990s); (2) Cognitive Classification of Questions (Costa's Levels of Thinking, Webb's Depth of Knowledge, and…

Watts, Tyler W.; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine; Bailey, Drew H. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Early educational intervention effects typically fade in the years following treatment, and few studies have investigated why achievement impacts diminish over time. The current study tested the effects of a preschool mathematics intervention on two aspects of children's mathematical development. We tested for separate effects of the intervention…

Simin, Cai; Lam, Toh Tin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper presents the design and development of a rubric for assessing mathematical modelling for mathematical modelling tasks at the secondary level. A rubric was crafted based on the mathematical modelling competencies synthesised by the researchers identified from four sources. The rubric was fine-tuned following an interview with three…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Eli, Jennifer A.; Mohr-Schroeder, Margaret J.; Lee, Carl W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2013
Effective competition in a rapidly growing global economy places demands on a society to produce individuals capable of higher-order critical thinking, creative problem solving, connection making, and innovation. We must look to our teacher education programs to help prospective middle grades teachers build the mathematical habits of mind that…

Kusaeri; Aditomo, Anindito – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
This study aims to (1) measure pre-service teachers' pedagogical belief in the value of teaching Critical Thinking (CT), their preparedness to teach CT, and their preference toward constructivist teaching approaches to develop students' CT skills; and (2) explore the potential links between these pedagogical beliefs and aspects of teacher…

Roos, Helena – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
This literature review focuses on the definitions and roles of "inclusion" in the field of mathematics education to help promote the sustainable development of inclusion in the discipline. Discourse analysis was used to analyse 76 studies published between 2010 and 2016. The results show that the term "inclusion" is used both…

Frejd, Peter; Bergsten, Christer – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
The notion of mathematical modelling has multiple interpretations in research literature and has been included in curriculum documents in various ways. This study presents a thematic analysis of nine professional modellers' conceptions of the notion of mathematical modelling, representing scholarly knowledge. The result is organised according to…
