Leyva, Luis A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
Gender research in mathematics education has experienced methodological and theoretical shifts over the past 45 years. Although achievement studies have used assessment tools to explore and subsequently challenge the assumption of male superiority on mathematics assessments, research on participation has unpacked these studies' sex-based…

Hilton, Annette; Hilton, Geoff – Teaching Science, 2016
In many scientific contexts, students need to be able to use mathematical knowledge in order to engage in scientific reasoning and problem-solving, and their understanding of scientific concepts relies heavily on their ability to understand and use mathematics in often new or unfamiliar contexts. Not only do science students need high levels of…

Maccini, Paula; Miller, Jason A.; Toronto, Allyson P. – Advances in Special Education, 2013
We conducted a comprehensive review of the literature on mathematical interventions for secondary students with learning disabilities (LD) and the identified studies were analyzed in light of the mathematical practices as outlined by the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI, 2010). Results indicated that Standard 2, reason abstractly and…

Iannone, Paola; Nardi, Elena – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 2005
In this paper, we draw on a 16-month study funded by the Learning and Teaching Support Network in the UK and entitled "Mathematicians as Educational Co-Researchers." The study's aims were two-fold. Primarily we intended to explore mathematicians' reflections on issues identified in the literature as highly topical in the area of teaching…

Reinking, Anni; Martin, Barbara – Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research, 2018
The 2010 President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology indicated that there was a need to provide individuals with strong STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) backgrounds in order to be a competitive country internationally. Additionally, it has been found that there is a gender gap in STEM related fields.…

Wolfe, Benjamin A.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Meeting the future demand for a qualified geoscience workforce will require efforts to increase recruitment, retention, and graduation of an increasingly diverse student body. Doing this successfully requires renewed attention to the needs and characteristics of underrepresented students, which include ethnic and cultural minorities, women, and…

McConell, David A.; Chapman, LeeAnna; Czaijka, C. Douglas; Jones, Jason P.; Ryker, Katherine D.; Wiggen, Jennifer – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The adoption of active learning instructional practices in college science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses has been shown to result in improvements in student learning, contribute to increased retention rates, and reduce the achievement gap among different student populations. Descriptions of active learning strategies…

Tsai, Wen-Huan – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This study was designed to supporting teachers on developing teaching norms based on classroom-learning community in which students are willing to engage in discourse. A collaborative team consisting of the researcher and four second-grade teachers were set up. The collaborative community intended to generate norms of acceptable or appropriate…

Duke, Thomas Scott; McCarthy, Kathrin W. – Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, 2009
We reviewed 31 articles that explored issues related to gender and sexuality in early childhood education (ECE) settings. This body of literature suggests that ECE programs and elementary schools often reinforce the homophobia, heterosexism, and sexism that characterize contemporary U.S. society. A number of the articles described strategies that…

Martinez-Luaces, Victor E. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2005
This article analyses mathematical modelling from several different perspectives and contrasts modelling with problem solving. Then it describes the ways in which modelling, applications, and problem solving are approached in several Latin American countries. It further describes workshops for secondary schools and for university teachers in which…

Blum-Anderson, Judy – School Science and Mathematics, 1992
Presents 10 teaching strategies that give attention to affective variables in mathematics classrooms to increase the likelihood that high school students will continue to enroll in higher level mathematics courses. Strategies focus on frustration, vocabulary use, anxiety, confidence, cooperative learning, creativity, remediation, mathematical…

Lesser, Lawrence M. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2007
Despite the dearth of literature specifically on teaching statistics using social justice, there is precedent in the more general realm of teaching using social justice, or even in teaching mathematics using social justice. This article offers an overview of content examples, resources, and references that can be used in the specific area of…

Colucci-Gray, Laura; Fraser, Christine – European Educational Research Journal, 2008
Teaching is acknowledged to be complex, multifaceted and dynamic. Curriculum revisions in Scotland, and elsewhere, call for teachers who are adaptable and capable of change. Yet the skills and attributes traditionally valued and acquired by teachers during their education do not necessarily equip them to cope with the shifting landscape of…

Prevost, Fernand J. – Mathematics Teacher, 1993
Discusses the mathematical pedagogy changes that reflect the constructivist approach exemplified in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematic's "Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics." As part of the change process, recommends that teachers (1) reflect on their present practices, (2) risk making changes in classroom…
