Sheridan, Kathleen M.; Banzer, David; Pradzinski, Anne; Wen, Xiaoli – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2020
Early math success in the PreK classroom is recognized as a strong predictor of later academic success. However, many early childhood teachers report they lack the content knowledge, confidence and beliefs to deliver high quality math experiences in their classrooms. Professional development opportunities to gain and expand these skills are often…

Ramirez, Gerardo; Hooper, Sophia Yang; Kersting, Nicole B.; Ferguson, Ronald; Yeager, David – AERA Open, 2018
Elementary school teachers' math anxiety has been found to play a role in their students' math achievement. The current study addresses the role of teacher math anxiety on ninth-grade students' math achievement and the mediating factors underlying this relationship. Using data from the National Mindset Study, we find that higher teacher math…

Gunderson, Elizabeth A.; Park, Daeun; Maloney, Erin A.; Beilock, Sian L.; Levine, Susan C. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2018
School-entry math achievement is a strong predictor of math achievement through high school. We asked whether reciprocal relations among math achievement, math anxiety, and entity motivational frameworks (believing that ability is fixed and a focus on performance) can help explain these persistent individual differences. We assessed 1st and 2nd…

Douglas, Daniel; Salzman, Hal – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Mathematics is an important and hotly contested aspect of U.S. postsecondary education. Its importance for academics and careers and the extent and impact of math achievement disparities are all subject of longstanding debate. Yet there is surprisingly little research into how much and what types of mathematics courses are taken by U.S.…

Stearns, Clio – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2020
In many countries, in contemporary math curricula, particularly in early childhood and childhood classrooms, it is considered crucial to encourage children to show their work, to concretely represent their thinking. This article takes up an historiography of this trend (from an American perspective), and draws on case studies of elementary…

Hintz, Allison; Kazemi, Elham – Educational Leadership, 2014
By simply asking students how they got the answer to a problem, math teachers can open the door to stimulating discussions in class. But how can they make sure those discussions promote mathematical understanding? Allison Hintz and Elham Kazemi explain that teachers need to know what the goal is for a discussion and plan accordingly. The authors…

Burns, Marilyn – Educational Leadership, 2014
Teachers often express to Marulyn Burns their worry about the need to "cover the curriculum." In response, she draws on one of her favorite quotes: "You don't want to cover a subject; you want to uncover it." This quote is from "The Having of Wonderful Ideas and Other Essays on Teaching and Learning" by Eleanor…

Crossley, Scott; Ocumpaugh, Jaclyn; Labrum, Matthew; Bradfield, Franklin; Dascalu, Mihai; Baker, Ryan S. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2018
A number of studies have demonstrated strong links between students' language features (as found in spoken and written production) and their math performance. However, no studies have examined links between the students' language features and measures of their Math Identity. This project extends prior studies that use natural language processing…

Patterson, Dawn R.; Hicks, S. Christy – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2020
As educators of students with autism, many teachers recognize that the day-to-day instruction is helping students learn skills to improve their quality of life, for today and in the long term. For those who teach young students, it may be difficult to project that far into the future; however, the reality is that educators want students with…
