White, D.; Sullivan, E. – PRIMUS, 2018

Teaching teachers to participate in mathematical inquiry has the potential to both transform belief systems about mathematics and to transform teachers from consumers of mathematics to producers of mathematics. The focus of this paper is to describe the use of a problem, based on a non-traditional binary operation, to encourage and teach…

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…

Cardella, Monica E. – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008

While many engineering educators have proposed changes to the way that mathematics is taught to engineers, the focus has often been on mathematical content knowledge. Work from the mathematics education community suggests that it may be beneficial to consider a broader notion of mathematics: mathematical thinking. Schoenfeld identifies five…

Marwan, Ardi; Sweeney, Trudy – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2010

Educational technology is becoming more pervasive in Indonesian vocational higher institutions, yet there is limited research available about Indonesian teachers' perceptions of this innovation. This paper sets out to contribute to this gap in the research literature and reports on a study that investigated the factors which supported and…

Strayer, Jeremy F.; Hart, James B.; Bleiler, Sarah K. – PRIMUS, 2015

In this article, we share a model of flipped instruction that allowed us to gain a window into our students' mathematical thinking. We depict how that increased awareness of student thinking shaped our mathematics instruction in productive ways. Drawing on our experiences with students in our own classrooms, we show how flipped instruction can be…

Zazkis, Rina; Mamolo, Ami – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2011

This article extends the notion of "knowledge at the mathematical horizon" or "horizon knowledge" introduced by Ball and colleagues as a part of teachers' subject matter knowledge. Our focus is on teachers' mathematical knowledge beyond the school curriculum, that is, on mathematics learnt during undergraduate college or university studies. We…

Widjaja, Wanty; Stacey, Kaye; Steinle, Vicki – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008

Extensive studies have documented various difficulties with, and misconceptions about, decimal numeration across different levels of education. This paper reports on pre-service teachers' misconceptions about the density of decimals. Written test data from 140 Indonesian pre-service teachers, observation of group and classroom discussions provided…

Kwan, Ann H.; Mobli, Mehdi; Schirra, Horst J.; Wilson, Jennifer C.; Jones, Oliver A. H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019

Magnetic resonance is a powerful technology that has had a major impact across the physical, life, and medical sciences, from chemistry to medical imaging, with ever-expanding applications in new areas as diverse as mining and food science. It is, however, also a difficult subject to teach, as the theory is complex and requires some familiarity…

Pournara, Craig – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2009

The ability of mathematics teachers to decompress mathematics and to move between representations are two key features of mathematical knowledge that is usable for teaching. This article reports on four pre-service secondary mathematics teachers learning the mathematics of annuities. In working with spreadsheets students began to make sense of…
