Snider, Rachel B. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Examples are an essential part of mathematics teaching and learning, used on a daily basis to teach and practice content. Yet, selecting good examples for teaching is complex and challenging. This article presents ideas to consider when selecting examples, drawn from a research study with algebra 2 teachers.

Carbonneau, Kira J.; Zhang, Xue; Ardasheva, Yuliya – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
In this study, we examine how prospective teachers perceive the efficacy of manipulatives and if these perceptions relate to their future use of manipulatives and their mathematics self-efficacy. Survey responses from 97 preservice educators who had completed a mathematics method course indicate three essential findings. One, preservice teachers…

Dahl, Heidi; Enge, Ole; Hansen, Torkel Haugan; Valenta, Anita – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2019
In this study, we analyse 23 prospective teachers' lesson plans for short whole-class mathematics discussions held with students at a middle school. The plans are in the form of "lesson plays", where an imagined discussion between the teacher and students is written verbatim. We use the Knowledge Quartet as a framework to investigate…

Stouraitis, Konstantinos; Potari, Despina; Skott, Jeppe – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
The study reported in this paper concerns the tensions and conflicts that teachers experience while they enact a new set of reform-oriented curricular materials into their classrooms. Our focus is ?n the interactions developed in two groups of teachers in two schools for a period of a school year. We use Activity Theory to study emerging…

Schoen, Robert C.; LaVenia, Mark – Cogent Education, 2019
Scholars have long argued that individuals' beliefs influence their behaviors and the decisions they make throughout their lives. Focusing on beliefs as a cognitive construct, the purpose of this study was to identify several key beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning held by practicing elementary mathematics teachers. An iterative…

I, Ji Yeong; Jackson, Christa; Martinez, Ricardo – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2020
We investigated how an online course designed for teachers to learn how to teach mathematics for emergent bilinguals influenced teachers' beliefs toward emergent bilinguals, especially in terms of culturally responsive mathematics teaching. Using qualitative pre- and post-surveys and the modified culturally responsive mathematics teaching…

Baloyi-Mothibeli, Seipati L.; Ugwuanyi, Christian S.; Okeke, Chinedu I. O. – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2021
This study sought strategies to improve teachers' professional curriculum practices in a Grade R mathematics class. A phenomenological research design was employed to generate data for the study using a sample of fifteen participants. A semi-structured interview guide was used to collect the data for the study. In this regard, the interview guide…

Harper, Frances; Stumbo, Zachary; Kim, Nicholas – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2021
This study explored how prospective elementary teachers developed mathematics teaching that used the cultural, linguistic, and cognitive resources from home and community settings to promote learning school mathematics with robotics. Drawing on lesson planning artifacts and written reflections following lesson enactments, the authors describe how…

Askew, Mike – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
This paper argues that there is a gap in the research on teaching and learning mathematics, and thus a need for research into effective teaching practices. From a selective review of literature, reasons are examined as to why less emphasis appears to have been placed on generating knowledge about teaching and effective mathematical teaching…

Jaworski, Barbara; Mali, Angeliki; Petropoulou, Georgia – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper focuses directly on mathematics teaching practice at university level, exploring "what teachers do and think daily, in class and out, as they perform their teaching work" (Speer et al. in "The Journal of Mathematical Behavior," 29, 99-114, 2010, p. 99). It is based on a small corpus of research conducted from…

Dobie, Tracy E.; Sherin, Miriam Gamoran – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
Language is key to how we understand and describe mathematics teaching and learning. Learning new terms can help us reflect on our practice and grow as teachers, yet may require us to be intentional about where and how we look for opportunities to expand our lexicons.
