Lim, Kien H.; Buendia, Gabriela; Kim, Ok-Kyeong; Cordero, Francisco; Kasmer, Lisa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
The prevalence of prediction in grade-level expectations in mathematics curriculum standards signifies the importance of the role prediction plays in the teaching and learning of mathematics. In this article, we discuss benefits of using prediction in mathematics classrooms: (1) students' prediction can reveal their conceptions, (2) prediction…

Drake, Corey; Land, Tonia J.; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Aguirre, Julia M.; Foote, Mary Q.; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Turner, Erin E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Many teachers experience the tension between using published curriculum materials and teaching in ways that are responsive to children. Teachers are often expected to use a particular mathematics curriculum series, but they still want to be able to build on and connect to children's multiple mathematical knowledge bases (MMKB).…

Fletcher, Nicole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Mathematics curriculum designers and policy decision makers are beginning to recognize the importance of problem solving, even at the earliest stages of mathematics learning. The Common Core includes sense making and perseverance in solving problems in its standards for mathematical practice for students at all grade levels. Incorporating problem…

Maloney, Alan P., Ed.; Confrey, Jere, Ed.; Nguyen, Kenny H., Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2014
The driving forces behind mathematics learning trajectories is the need to understand how children actually learn and make sense of mathematics--how they progress from prior knowledge, through intermediate understandings, to the mathematics target understandings--and how to use these insights to improve instruction and student learning. In this…

Bowers, Janet S.; Stephens, Becky – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2011
The technological revolution that has finally permeated K-12 education has direct implications for modern teacher educators whose "Hippocratic oath" is to best prepare future teachers for twenty-first-century classrooms. The goal of this article is to suggest that the heart of sound technological implementation is to encourage students to use…

Onion, Alice – Mathematics Teaching, 2011
One may have heard of Bowland maths and will know something of the "case studies" that were published in 2008. These are substantial mathematics projects, taking five hours, or more, to complete. Most are set in real or realistic contexts, like "designing a smoothy"--Product Wars, or "devising plans to improve road safety"--Reducing Road…

Mistele, Jean M.; Spielman, Laura J. – Democracy & Education, 2009
This article discusses a new preservice teacher mathematics course titled Elementary and Middle Grades Mathematics for Social Analysis (Math for Social Analysis). Math for Social Analysis is innovative within mathematics teacher education programs in its theoretical foundation, goals, and approach. The course rests on an assertion that integrating…

Ineson, Gwen – Perspectives in Education, 2008
The mathematics curriculum in the United Kingdom (UK) has undergone radical changes, placing a particular focus on mental computation. Pupils are not taught written methods of computation until they are able to add and subtract any pair of two digit numbers mentally. Teacher education programmes in the UK have required adaptation to reflect these…

Green, Kris; Emerson, Allen – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008
The first part of this two-part paper [see EJ787497] described the development of a new freshman business mathematics (FBM) course at our college. In this paper, we discuss our assessment tool, the business memo, as a venue for students to apply mathematical skills, via mathematical modelling, to realistic business problems. These memos have…

Hunter, Roberta – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2010
In the current shifts in mathematics classrooms, teachers are challenged to use effective pedagogy to develop inquiry communities in which all participants are offered opportunities to engage in the reasoning discourse of proficient mathematical practices. The challenge for teachers is to know how to implement these pedagogical changes. This…

Tillema, Erik; Gatza, Andrew; Ulrich, Catherine – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2017
The number and algebra strand of the "Australian Curriculum: Mathematics" (2015) advocates for holding together the study of number and algebra across years K-8--a position that mathematics educators have endorsed in many countries. This recommendation along with the report "Shape of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics"…

Abramovich, Sergei – PRIMUS, 2009
This article reflects on the author's experience in teaching courses in mathematics content and methods in teacher preparation programs. It shows how technology-enhanced inquiry into a seemingly mundane task on situated addition found in a popular textbook for prospective elementary teachers, can reveal hidden properties of integers associated…

Harkness, Shelly Sheats; Portwood, Lisa – Mathematics Educator, 2007
In this narrative of teacher educator action research, the idea for and the context of the lesson emerged as a result of conversations between Shelly, a mathematics teacher educator, and Lisa, a quilter, about real-life mathematical problems related to Lisa's work as she created the templates for a reproduction quilt. The lesson was used with…
