Inoue, Noriyuki – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2011
One danger of integrating inquiry-based problem-solving activities into mathematics lessons is that different strategies could be accepted without in-depth discussions on the cogency and efficiency of the strategies. To overcome this issue, Japanese teachers typically go through a series of lesson-study-based teacher learning sessions and learn…

Unal, Hasan – Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, 2008
As well as being important for school mathematics, spatial thinking is a big component of advanced mathematical studies too. As Jones (2001:55) points out, "Much of the thinking that is required in higher mathematics is spatial in nature. Einstein's comments on thinking in images are well known. Numerous mathematicians report using spatial…

Cai, Jinfa; Wang, Tao – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2010
This study investigates Chinese and U.S. teachers' cultural beliefs concerning effective mathematics teaching from the teachers' perspectives. Although sharing some common beliefs, the two groups of teachers think differently about both mathematics understanding and the features of effective teaching. The sample of U.S. teachers put more emphasis…

Wilhelm, Jennifer Anne; Smith, Walter S.; Walters, Kendra L.; Sherrod, Sonya E.; Mulholland, Judith – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2008
Pre-service teachers from Texas and Indiana in the United States and from Queensland, Australia, observed the Moon for a semester and compared and contrasted their findings in asynchronous Internet discussion groups. The 188 pre-service teachers were required to conduct inquiry investigations for their methods coursework which included an initial…

Whitty, Geoff, Ed.; Furlong, John, Ed. – Symposium Books, 2017
In the English-speaking world, university Schools of Education are usually heavily involved in the professional preparation of teachers. Yet, in England and the USA in particular, the role of universities in teacher education has increasingly seemed under threat as alternative providers of training have come on the scene, often with the overt…

Gubbins, E. Jean; Villanueva, Merzili; Gilson, Cindy M.; Foreman, Jennifer L.; Bruce-Davis, Micah N.; Vahidi, Siamak; Callahan, Carolyn M.; Tofel-Grehl, Colby – National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented, 2013
As a nation, society benefits from an educated populace. At a time when economic, environmental, social, and security issues are the focus of many conversations in businesses, industries, government offices, schools, and homes, policymakers turn their attention to the further development of human capital. Educators acknowledge that they have key…

Correa, Christopher A.; Perry, Michelle; Sims, Linda M.; Miller, Kevin F.; Fang, Ge – Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, 2008
This study compares US and Chinese elementary mathematics teachers' beliefs about how students learn mathematics. Interviews with teachers in each country revealed that Chinese and US teachers have distinct ways of thinking about how mathematics should be taught and how students learn. Many Chinese teachers talked about developing students'…

Bass, Hyman, Ed.; Usiskin, Zalman, Ed.; Burrill, Gail, Ed. – National Academies Press, 2002
The Mathematical Sciences Education Board (MSEB) and the U.S. National Commission on Mathematics Instruction (USNCMI) took advantage of a unique opportunity to bring educators together. In August 2000, following the Ninth International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME-9) in Makuhari, Japan, MSEB and USNCMI capitalized on the presence of…

Faulkner, Valerie N. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2009
At the heart of the recent focus on mathematics has been an increased emphasis on developing students' "number sense." Ironically, although growing as a force in the education literature, number sense has not been clearly defined for teachers. Teachers need specific support in understanding how to develop number sense in students, to…

Collinson, Vivienne; Kozina, Ekaterina; Lin, Yu-Hao Kate; Ling, Lorraine; Matheson, Ian; Newcombe, Liz; Zogla, Irena – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2009
As the industrialised world shifted to an interdependent and global society, formal schooling was quickly recognised as a major factor in achieving a knowledge society of lifelong learners capable of transforming and revitalising organisations. Teachers were encouraged to engage in learning together to improve teaching and, by extension, improve…

Cai, Jinfa; Lester, Frank K., Jr. – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 2005
This study involved an investigation of the relationship between the kinds of solution representations Chinese and U.S. students use and the sorts of pedagogical representations Chinese and U.S. teachers use during instruction. The findings suggest that the representations teachers use influence the representations their students use and, hence,…

Thompson, Tony D.; Preston, Ronald V. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2004
This article summarizes results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) that show measurement education to be a major weakness in the United States, particularly for minority students. The middle school measurement topics assessed by NAEP and TIMSS include…
