Parker, Frieda; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Novak, Jodie D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Research advances in teaching, learning, curriculum, and assessment have not changed the continued underperformance of marginalized students in mathematics education. Culturally responsive teaching is a means of addressing the needs of these students. It is sometimes challenging, however, to convince secondary mathematics teachers about the…

Stylianides, Gabriel J.; Stylianides, Andreas J.; Philippou, George N. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2007
There is a growing effort to make "proof" central to all students' mathematical experiences across all grades. Success in this goal depends highly on teachers' knowledge of proof, but limited research has examined this knowledge. This paper contributes to this domain of research by investigating preservice elementary and secondary school…

Skovsmose, Ole – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 2006
Three issues concerning the relationship between research and practice are addressed. (1) A certain "prototype mathematics classroom" seems to dominate the research field, which in many cases seems selective with respect to what practices to address. I suggest challenging the dominance of the discourse created around the prototype mathematics…
