Akkoç, Hatice; Yesildere-Imre, Sibel – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2017
Teachers' pedagogical practice and choices for their actions could not only be explained by their knowledge, beliefs or attitudes (Rodgers & Scott, 2008). Identity also has a crucial role in learning to teach. The aim of this study is to investigate contextual nature of preservice mathematics teachers' professional identities. For this aim, a…

Cincinatus, Ronit Bassan; Sheffet, Malka – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
The ubiquity of the subject of percentages in our everyday life demands that math teachers and pre-service math teachers demonstrate a profound knowledge and thorough understanding of the concept of percentages. This work, which originated from one specific lesson in an 8th grade math class, studies the conceptual understanding and problem-solving…

Braeken, Johan; Blömeke, Sigrid – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2016
Using data from the international Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M), the measurement equivalence of teachers' beliefs across countries is investigated for the case of "mathematics-as-a fixed-ability". Measurement equivalence is a crucial topic in all international large-scale assessments and…

Gurl, Theresa J.; Fox, Ryan; Dabovic, Nikolina; Leavitt, Arielle Eager – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The implementation of the Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice can pose a challenge to all teachers of mathematics but especially to preservice teachers. These standards require teaching in a way that often differs from what preservice teachers have experienced as learners. Standard 1--"Make sense of problems and persevere in…

Richardson, Alice; Ascione, Judith; Barker, Valerie – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2015
In many parts of the world, Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (3.14), but because of the day-month ordering of dates in Australia, and because March is very close to the start of the academic year, Australians prefer to celebrate Pi (Approximation) Day on 22 July (22/7). Thirty-eight Year 8 students (aged 13-14 years) from two local high schools in…

Morris, Anne K.; Hiebert, James; Spitzer, Sandy M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2009
The goal of this study is to uncover the successes and challenges that preservice teachers are likely to experience as they unpack lesson-level mathematical learning goals (i.e., identify the subconcepts and subskills that feed into target learning goals). Unpacking learning goals is a form of specialized mathematical knowledge for teaching, an…

Houge, Timothy T.; Geier, Constance – Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 2009
To date, nearly all one-to-one literacy instruction is delivered in person, often in university-based reading clinic settings. This traditional tutoring format, however, has not met the needs or fit the schedules of many adolescents. Distance technology, accompanied with research that confirms literacy instructional components do remain intact,…
