Yasa, Gulzade Karaci; Karatas, Ilhan – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2018
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of the instruction with mathematical modeling on pre-service mathematics teachers' mathematical modeling performance. The participants were 24 pre-service elementary mathematics teachers. A mixed method approach was used to conduct the research. Each week, the participants were given two…

Chamberlin, Michelle T. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2019
Too often, students are merely consumers of mathematics, without many opportunities to engage in authentic processes of doing mathematics. As a mathematics teacher educator, I decided to provide more opportunities for my prospective teachers (PSTs) to do so. In my mathematics class for elementary education majors, the PSTs worked on two…

Hiebert, James; Berk, Dawn; Miller, Emily; Gallivan, Heather; Meikle, Erin – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
We investigated whether the mathematics studied in 2 content courses of an elementary teacher preparation program was retained and used by graduates when completing tasks measuring knowledge for teaching mathematics. Using a longitudinal design, we followed 2 cohorts of prospective teachers for 3 to 4 years after graduation. We assessed…

Watts, Tyler W.; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine; Bailey, Drew H. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Early educational intervention effects typically fade in the years following treatment, and few studies have investigated why achievement impacts diminish over time. The current study tested the effects of a preschool mathematics intervention on two aspects of children's mathematical development. We tested for separate effects of the intervention…

Novikasari, Ifada; Darhim, Didi Suryadi – Educational Research and Reviews, 2015
This study explored the characteristics of pre-service primary teachers (PSTs) influenced by mathematical belief and mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) PSTs'. A qualitative approach was used to investigate the levels of PSTs on mathematical belief and MKT. The two research instruments used in this study were an interview-based task and a…

Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Mathematics education researchers have investigated mathematics anxiety in prospective elementary teachers. While many of these studies have focused on the bodily sensations and emotions of mathematics anxiety, particularly those felt in assessment situations, opportunities remain to investigate how prospective elementary teachers interpret their…

Max, Brooke; Amstutz, Molly – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
Mathematics content for elementary teachers (MCfET) courses generally provide prospective elementary teachers (PTs) with opportunities to engage with mathematical content and consider it from a teacher's perspective, yet little is known about the intended curriculum of such courses. Findings from an analysis of MCfET course activities using the…

Swars, Susan L.; Smith, Stephanie Z.; Smith, Marvin E.; Carothers, Jody; Myers, Kayla – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Many in the field of mathematics education call for elementary schools to have elementary mathematics specialists (EMSs) who provide needed mathematical expertise and support for children and teachers. EMSs serve as a reasonable, immediate alternative to the challenges generated by elementary teachers needing improved mathematical knowledge for…

Berthelson, Meredith Kay – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Early mathematical skills have long been hailed as a cornerstone and as the best predictor of later success in mathematics and literacy. This perception highlights the importance of elementary educator's mathematical content knowledge (MCK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). This study explored a novel approach to motivating and facilitating…

Cormas, Peter C. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Preservice teachers in six sections (n = 87) of a sequenced, methodological and process-integrated elementary mathematics/science methods course were able to reconcile an issue centered on a similar area of epistemology. Preservice teachers participated in a science inquiry lesson on biological classification and a mathematics problem-solving…

Turner, Erin E.; Drake, Corey – Journal of Teacher Education, 2016
Researchers have studied the preparation of elementary teachers to teach mathematics to students from diverse racial, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds by focusing either on teachers' learning about children's mathematical thinking (CMT) or, less frequently, about children's cultural funds of knowledge (CFoK) related to mathematics. Despite this…

Ritter, Carrie Lineberry – ProQuest LLC, 2015
Calls for better preparation of STEM teachers have been prominent in educational communities and among the public for the past several years (e.g. American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, 2007). Some research suggests one way to improve mathematics instruction is to increase elementary pre-service teachers' "mathematical…

Trinick, Robyn; Ledger, Gail; Major, Karen; Perger, Pamela – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
Connections between music and mathematics have been of interest to scholars as far back as the time of Pythagoras. In Aotearoa-New Zealand, the use of songs and chants as aids for memorising information such as number patterns and names of geometrical shapes is common practice in early childhood centres and primary classrooms. While such practices…
