Kent, Laura B. – Journal of Education and Learning, 2014
This article explores the impact of students' thinking centered professional development on mathematics teaching and learning. Purposeful pedagogy and problem posing are examined as mechanisms by which teachers can potentially deepen students' understanding of mathematics. A classroom example comparing student generated strategies versus…

Long, Caroline; Dunne, Tim; de Kock, Hendrik – Pythagoras, 2014
A challenge encountered when monitoring mathematics teaching and learning at high school is that taxonomies such as Bloom's, and variations of this work, are not entirely adequate for providing meaningful feedback to teachers beyond very general cognitive categories that are difficult to interpret. Challenges of this nature are also encountered in…

Larson, Matthew R.; Leinwand, Steven – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Educators in forty-five states and the District of Columbia are hard at work interpreting and implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010). This work typically involves teacher participation in professional development activities focused on developing an understanding of the content standards as well as the…

Usiskin, Zalman – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
Singapore students have scored exceedingly well on international tests in mathematics. In response, there has been a desire in the United States--both at the policy level and at the school level--to emulate Singapore. Because what can be identified most easily about Singapore's school mathematics can be gleaned from curriculum documents from the…

Coleman, David; Pimentel, Susan; Zimba, Jason – State Education Standard, 2012
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed through an unprecedented, state-led initiative that drew on the expertise of teachers, parents, administrators, researchers and content experts from across the country. The Standards define a staircase to college and career readiness, building on the best of previous state standards in English…

Bouhlila, Donia Smaali – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2011
Research on educational quality has been scarce in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, whereas the debates over educational quality date from 1966 in the USA with the Coleman Report. Fortunately TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) starts to fill this gap by providing data on students' achievement and for many…

Brown, Margaret – Curriculum Journal, 2011
Inferences from recent international comparative data on mathematical attainment, frequently quoted as justification for curriculum change, are critically examined, and the implications are contrasted with expressed curricular aims. Using characterisations by Ball (1990) and Ernest (1991), positions of key actors are analysed in relation to…

Sheperd, Paul; Sakashita, Sue Savage – Understanding Our Gifted, 2009
Typical middle and high school math curricula are template based, meaning the use of standardized methods to solve mathematical problems as examples on which to base other problem solving. Template based math instruction may help a student to pass tests; however, it is an insufficient way to develop mathematical thinking. Mathematicians are…

Lee, Yim Ping – Educational Research for Policy and Practice, 2005
In the past, the teacher's sole job is to dispense his pool of knowledge to his students. The emergence of the knowledge economy and globalisation have redefined the place and role of knowledge in society. It is no longer effective to accumulate knowledge but rather to acquire skills for processing the large amount of data made available through…

Schmidt, William; Houang, Richard; Cogan, Leland – American Educator, 2002
Shows that the mathematics curricula used in the highest achieving countries are very similar and coherent. Using a visual comparison, this paper explains where the United States comes up short, noting that in the countries with the highest mathematics achievement, teachers have coherent guidelines (national curricula) and related tools and…
