Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
On October 14, 2013 the Mathematics Education Department at Teachers College hosted a full-day conference focused on the Common Core Standards Mathematical Modeling requirements to be implemented in September 2014 and in honor of Professor Henry Pollak's 25 years of service to the school. This article is adapted from my talk at this conference…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy & Practice, 2017
The challenge of "educational" assessments--assessments that advance the purposes of learning and instruction--is to provide useful information regarding students' progress towards the goals of instruction in ways that are reliable and not idiosyncratic. In this commentary, the author indicates that the challenges are actually more…

Schoenfeld, Alan H.; Lewis, Katherine E. – Journal of Education, 2016
Viewed one way, Alan Schoenfeld's main lines of research and Katherine E. Lewis's dissertation have almost nothing in common. Schoenfeld work has focused on understanding mathematical thinking and teaching, while Lewis' work has focused on mathematical learning disabilities. Viewed another way, there are strong overlaps and strong parallels. In…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This article characterizes my use of video as a tool for research, design and development. I argue that videos, while a potentially overwhelming source of data, provide the kind of large bandwidth that enables one to capture phenomena that one might otherwise miss; and that although the act of taping is in itself an act of selection, there is…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Educational Researcher, 2006
An early version of this article, discussing curricular interventions in mathematics, was written for the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC). The Institute of Education Sciences (IES), which funds WWC, instructed WWC not to publish it. An expanded version, written at WWC's invitation for a special issue of an independent electronic journal and a book…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2009
In this article, the author shares his thoughts about who he is as a teacher and what his goals as a teacher turn out to be. The author describes his role as researcher, teacher, and educator. He begins with his take on mathematics teaching and learning, because the question of which mathematics educators teach and how they teach it is really…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
In this Research Commentary, the author explores what is meant by "teaching for understanding" and delves into these questions: How does teaching for understanding interact with the backgrounds of the students who experience it or the attributes of the contexts in which they learn? Which empirical findings are context dependent, and…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – 2002
In the United States, African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans have lower success rates and higher drop-out rates in mathematics than other racial or ethnic groups. Given that quantitative competency serves increasingly as a vehicle for economic enfranchisement, these differential success rates make mathematics achievement a civil rights…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2007
The authors of this volume's stimulus papers have taken on the challenge of developing measures of teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). This task involves multiple decisions and considerations, including: (1) How does one specify the body of knowledge being assessed? What warrants are offered for those choices?; (2) How does one…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
This essay reflects on the challenges of thinking about scale--of making sense of phenomena such as continuous professional development (CPD) at the system level, while holding on to detail at the finer grain size(s) of implementation. The stimuli for my reflections are three diverse studies of attempts at scale--an attempt to use ideas related to…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2010
Teachers try to help their students learn. But why do they make the particular teaching choices they do? What resources do they draw upon? What accounts for the success or failure of their efforts? In "How We Think", esteemed scholar and mathematician, Alan H. Schoenfeld, proposes a groundbreaking theory and model for how we think and act in the…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989
Explores the relationship between high school students' beliefs about mathematics and their mathematical performance. Reports: (1) the students' attributions of success or failure; (2) perceptions of mathematics; (3) comparative views of school mathematics, English and social studies; (4) motivation; and (5) personal performance. A questionnaire…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – 1983
This report, prepared for and published by the Mathematical Association of America's Committee on the Teaching of Undergraduate Mathematics, includes a description of the state of the art on problem solving, lists available resources, and makes recommendations regarding the place of problem solving in the college curriculum and ways to teach it.…

Schoenfeld, Alan H.; Herrmann, Douglas J. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 1982
Experts' perceptions of mathematical problem structures were compared with students' perceptions before and after a course on mathematical problem solving. After the course the students perceived problem relatedness more like the experts, indicating that criteria for problem perception shift as a person's knowledge bases become more richly…
