Boston, Melissa D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This investigation describes secondary mathematics teachers' learning and instructional change following their participation in a professional development workshop, the Enhancing Secondary Mathematics Teacher Preparation Project (ESP) (2004-2005), specifically focused on the selection and implementation of cognitively challenging mathematical…

Whitten, Damon – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
This paper explores how beliefs about mathematics may influence low-achieving adults' re-engagement with mathematics in the tertiary sector. Adult learners who have problematic mathematical histories often hold negative beliefs about the nature of mathematics and how it is learned. In New Zealand these adults are often required to re-engage in…

Dalby, Diane; Noyes, Andrew – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2015
For many vocational students in England, mathematics is now a compulsory part of their programme, yet the inclusion of an academic subject within a vocational course presents challenges. In this paper, an analysis of a series of case studies of vocational student groups in Further Education colleges in England shows how contrasting practices in…

Gill, Olivia; O'Donoghue, John; Faulkner, Fiona; Hannigan, Ailish – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
Hunt and Lawson 1 displayed the evidence of decline in the mathematical standards of first-year students in Coventry University between 1991 and 1995. Gill 2 sought to investigate if this was also the case in the University of Limerick (UL). The results of diagnostic tests administered to first-year undergraduates in the science and technology…

Copur-Gencturk, Yasemin; Lubienski, Sarah T. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This longitudinal study examines growth in teacher knowledge as measured by two popular assessments--Learning Mathematics for Teaching (LMT) and Diagnostic Teacher Assessments in Mathematics and Science (DTAMS). Using data collected from 24 teachers, we compare the extent to which each assessment captured teacher learning during a K-8 mathematics…

Kuntze, Sebastian; Aizikovitsh-Udi, Einav; Clarke, David – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Stimulating thinking related to mathematical content is the focus of many tasks in the mathematics classroom. Beyond such content-related thinking, promoting forms of higher order thinking is among the goals of mathematics instruction as well. So-called hybrid tasks focus on combining both goals: they aim at fostering mathematical thinking and…

Osman, Kamisah – Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, 2014
Teaching and learning based on web or web-based learning is a concept which integrates information and technology in education. Teachers and instructors have to assist their learners to learn to function in this information environment. However, teacher trainers and instructors have limited experience in the integration of ICT by using web in…

Wedege, Tine – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2009
Since 1997, the identity of the research field of adults learning mathematics has been debated; the research field has grown in quantity and quality; and the research forum Adults Learning Mathematics (ALM) has established an international journal. In practice, the researchers answer the question about identity and quality of research papers in…

Saliga, Linda Marie; Daviso, Al; Stuart, Denise; Pachnowski, Lynne – Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, 2015
In this project, a university team of teacher education and mathematics professors conducted eight professional development sessions for General Educational Development (GED) teachers in the area of mathematics teaching. Topics included concretely modeling mathematics concepts in algebra, number sense, geometry, and differentiating instruction in…

McCloskey, Andrea – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2012
In this article, I build on the work of mathematics education researchers (Hackenberg, 2005; Sztajn, 2008) who have used Noddings's (1984) notion of caring to lend insights to the teaching of mathematics. In particular, I retrospectively analyze my actions when I was serving as a mathematics teacher educator seeking to provide professional…

Díez-Palomar, Javier – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2017
This paper introduces the Mathematics Dialogic Gatherings (MDG) as a successful way to encourage adults' learning of mathematics. We report on a group of adults who attended a MDG in an adult school placed in Barcelona. Participants in this group do not have an academic trajectory. They attend once a week a session in the adult school, where they…

Beeli-Zimmermann, Sonja – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2014
Because of the impact that mathematical beliefs have on an individual's behaviour, they are generally well researched. However, little mathematical belief research has taken place in the field of adult education. This paper presents preliminary results from a study conducted in this field in Switzerland. It is based on Ernest's (1989) description…

Johnson, Patrick; O'Keeffe, Lisa – Irish Educational Studies, 2016
In August 2008, the Mathematics Learning Centre at the University of Limerick initiated a mathematics bridging course, entitled "Head Start Maths", to provide mathematics revision for adult learners about to embark on science or technology degree programmes. The aim of Head Start Maths was to revise mathematics fundamentals before the…

Osborne, Michael; Borkowska, Katarzyna – Asia Pacific Education Review, 2017
In this article, we seek to assess the extent to which adult and lifelong learning policies and practices in Asia have distinctiveness by comparison to those found in western societies, through an analysis of inter-governmental, national and regional policies in the field. We also inform our study through the analysis of the work of organisations…

Garrett, Lauretta – Journal of Developmental Education, 2013
Adult developmental mathematics students often work under great pressure to complete the mathematics sequences designed to help them achieve success (Bryk & Treisman, 2010). Results of a teaching experiment demonstrate how the ability to reason can be impeded by flaws in students' mental representations of mathematics. The earnestness of the…
