van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2005
This paper problematizes the issue of how decisions about the content of mathematics education can be made. After starting with two examples where research in mathematics education resulted in different choices on the content of primary school teaching, I explore where and how, in the scientific enterprise within the domain of education, issues of…

Jay, Tim; Willis, Ben; Thomas, Peter; Taylor, Roberta; Moore, Nick; Burnett, Cathy; Merchant, Guy; Stevens, Anna – Education Endowment Foundation, 2017
The aim of the intervention was to raise levels of engagement and attainment across English, maths, and science in primary schools by improving the quality of teacher and pupil talk in the classroom. The approach, termed "dialogic teaching", emphasises dialogue through which pupils learn to reason, discuss, argue, and explain in order to…

Inglis, Matthew; Mejia-Ramos, Juan; Simpson, Adrian – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2007
In recent years several mathematics education researchers have attempted to analyse students' arguments using a restricted form of Toulmina's ["The Uses of Argument," Cambridge University Press, UK, 1958] argumentation scheme. In this paper we report data from task-based interviews conducted with highly talented postgraduate mathematics students,…

Fukawa-Connelly, Timothy; Buck, Stephen – Mathematics Teacher, 2010
Writing in mathematics can improve procedural knowledge and communication skills and may also help students better understand and then remember problems. The majority of mathematics teachers know that they ought to include some writing assignments in their instructional plans, but the challenge of covering the curriculum and the time required to…

Swinscoe, David – Education in Science, 2011
In many UK secondary schools, pupils, parents and teachers have limited knowledge about careers available through studying Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and the progression pathways to these careers. Pupils need confidence that studying science will lead them to something useful and of value to them in the…

Sullivan, Gregory; Chieppo, Charles; Gass, Jamie – Pioneer Institute for Public Policy Research, 2019
As state leaders consider needed updates to the Commonwealth's school funding formula, they should remember just how well the approach taken by Tom Birmingham, former Massachusetts state Senate president, and co-author of the 1993 Education Reform Act worked. Beginning in 1993, Massachusetts' SAT scores rose for 13 consecutive years. The state's…

Moreau, Marie-Pierre; Mendick, Heather; Epstein, Debbie – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2010
In this paper, based on a project funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council considering how people position themselves in relation to popular representations of mathematics and mathematicians, we explore constructions of mathematicians in popular culture and the ways learners make meanings from these. Drawing on an analysis of popular…

Jennings, Lenora; Likis, Lori – Educational Leadership, 2005
An urban community spotlighted declining mathematics achievement and took some measures, in which the students' performance increased substantially. The Benjamin Banneker Charter Public School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, engaged the entire community and launched the campaign called "Math Everywhere", which changed Benjamin Banneker's…

Runesson, Ulla – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2005
In this article a theory of learning, variation theory, is presented in order to address the "provocation" created by the relationship between theoretical positions and findings in research and what these do and do not disclose. I demonstrate how this can be used as an analytical tool for studying classroom learning in mathematics by juxtaposing…

McDonald, Joseph P.; And Others – 1985
This report of a 1984 conference on the computer as a teaching tool provides summaries of presentations on the role of the computer in the teaching of science, mathematics, computer literacy, and language arts. Analyses of themes emerging from the conference are then presented under four headings: (1) The Computer and the Curriculum (the computer…

Raiker, Andrea – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2002
States teachers/learners use spoken language in a three part mathematics lesson advocated by the British National Numeracy Strategy. Recognizes language's importance by emphasizing correct use of mathematical vocabulary in raising standards. Finds pupils and teachers appear to ascribe different meanings to scientific words because of their…

Cajkler, Wasyl; Wood, Phil; Norton, Julie; Pedder, David – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2013
Lesson Study (LS) case studies were conducted in two secondary school teaching practice placements in England. Using Dudley's framework, Geography and Modern Languages trainees and school-based colleagues collaboratively planned a "research lesson". This was taught by the mentor while the trainee and other teachers observed the learning…

Sawyer, R. Keith, Ed. – Cambridge University Press, 2011
With an increasing emphasis on creativity and innovation in the twenty-first century, teachers need to be creative professionals just as students must learn to be creative. And yet, schools are institutions with many important structures and guidelines that teachers must follow. Effective creative teaching strikes a delicate balance between…

Bills, Liz; Husbands, Chris – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2005
The issue of values has been a longstanding concern of mathematics education research. Attempts have been made to analyze the specifically mathematical values which characterize the practice of mathematics teachers. In this paper we draw on one teacher's articulation of her practice to explore values issues in the teaching of mathematics, drawing…
