Moschkovich, Judit N. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2012

This paper outlines research-based recommendations for mathematics instruction for English Learners (ELs) aligned with the Common Core Standards. The recommendations focus on improving mathematics learning and teaching through language for all students, and especially for ELs. These recommendations are intended to guide teachers and teacher…

Barnett, Lynn, Ed.; San Felice, Faith, Ed. – American Association of Community Colleges (NJ3), 2006

This report is the result of a national conference convened in December 2005 by the American Association of Community Colleges in partnership with the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) and supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This event, the Teaching by Choice Leadership Summit on Community College…

Groves, Susie; Doig, Brian – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004

This paper uses data from two mathematics lessons to explore the nature of progressive discourse and examine critical features of teacher actions that contribute to mathematics classrooms functioning as communities of inquiry. Features found to promote progressive discourse include a focus on the conceptual elements of the curriculum and the use…

Woolner, Pamela – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004

Despite mathematicians valuing the ability to visualize a problem and psychologists finding positive correlations of visual-spatial ability with success in mathematics, many educationists remain unconvinced about the benefits of visualization for mathematical understanding. This paper describes research that compared a "visual" to a "verbal"…

Fritzlar, Torsten – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004

Teaching can be understood as acting and deciding in a complex system. On that problem oriented mathematics instruction (POMI) can be characterized as very high complex particularly regarding to mathematical-cognitive aspects. To cope with resulting demands in the long run, the teacher has to be sensitive for this complexity. But what does this…

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…

Cobb, Paul – Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, 1991

Challenged is the traditional model for the transmission of mathematics in the elementary school classroom. An inquiry approach to learning mathematics is proposed and supported with results of a year long research project that exposed second graders to mathematical learning experiences using this approach. (MDH)

Angiama, R. O. – 1995

This paper is based on research work carried out in the Foundation Course in Mathematics at Goldsmiths College, University of London. The theme of the investigation was to investigate the hidden faces of cubes placed on a table. In order to do this, the following investigational teaching styles and learning strategies were adopted: investigate…

Pea, Roy D. – 1986

This paper provides an historical perspective on the possible roles of cognitive technologies in thinking as "reorganizers" of the mind. It suggests that by understanding the transformational roles of advanced technologies for mathematical thinking, positive contributions can be made to research and practice on the use of computers in…

Stix, Andi – 1996

Teachers today are faced not only with oversized classes, but with students of varying abilities who differ in the ways they process information. The fostering of diverse styles of learning has been neglected in the teaching of mathematics. The use of journal writing as a vehicle for assessing students' understanding of material provides an…

Graf, Klaus-Dieter; Hodgson, Bernard R. – For the Learning of Mathematics, 1990

The kaleidoscope is presented as a suitable topic for a preservice mathematics teacher's first contact with a nontrivial mathematical phenomenon. Included are historical notes on the kaleidoscope, explanation of the inner mechanisms of various kaleidoscope designs, and suggestions for further student investigations. (JJK)

Robitaille, David F. – 1989

This document contains 15 papers selected from 47 papers presented at a theme group of the Sixth International Congress on Mathematical Education. The papers included have been divided into four groups. The first group consists of a survey paper, which discusses the history of assessment and evaluation. The second section consists of six papers…

Borasi, Raffaella – 1989

The purpose of this study is to contribute to an understanding of how errors could be employed in mathematics instruction so that the students use them constructively in support of their learning of mathematics. A teaching experiment was designed to create an ideal context in which the pedagogical approach to errors as springboards could be…

D'Emidio-Caston, Marianne – 1993

This paper describes a simulation activity, which was coupled with Confluent/Gestalt meta-processing, that was designed to address the affective component of a mathematics procedures class for preservice teachers. The activity consisted of an explanation and demonstration for teacher educators. It is argued that a reconstruction of disposition…
