Delgado, Cesar; Jones, M. Gail; You, Hye Sun; Robertson, Laura; Chesnutt, Katherine; Halberda, Justin – International Journal of Science Education, 2017
Crosscutting concepts such as "scale, proportion, and quantity" are recognised by U.S. science standards as a potential vehicle for students to integrate their scientific and mathematical knowledge; yet, U.S. students and adults trail their international peers in scale and measurement estimation. Culturally based knowledge of scale such…

Davis, Julius – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2014
There is a growing body of research focused on the mathematical experiences of Black males in the United States of America. This research has emerged to challenge the dominant narrative in mathematics education focused on Black males' low performance on international, national, and state standardized tests. There is very little research that has…

Mateas, Victor – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) has caused a shift in the expectations for student learning, with implications for teaching. It has also introduced a new kind of standard focused on the way that students think about content in the form of the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP). The SMP…

Williamson, Gary L. – Cogent Education, 2018
Individual growth curves yield insights about growth that are not available from any other methodology; and developmental scales based on conjoint measurement models provide unique interpretive advantages for investigations of academic growth. The advantages are apparent when: (1) 15 consecutive statewide reading growth curves are annotated with…

Martinovic, Dragana; Manizade, Agida G. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
In our research, we focused on the design of assessment instruments for measuring teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching geometry. Since 1987 when Lee Shulman conceptualized pedagogical content knowledge, different research groups have expanded on this construct and developed their own measurement instruments. The strengths and limitations…

Hillman, Thomas – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2014
This article examines mathematical activity with digital technology by tracing it from its development through its use in classrooms. Drawing on material-semiotic approaches from the field of Science and Technology Studies, it examines the visions of mathematical activity that developers had for an advanced graphing calculator. It then follows the…

Lambert, Rachel – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
This study demonstrates the importance of a critical lens on disability in mathematics educational research. This ethnographic and interview study investigated how ability and disability were constructed over 1 year in a middle school mathematics classroom. Children participated in two kinds of mathematical pedagogy that positioned children…

Bicknell, Brenda – Gifted Child Today, 2014
Parent recognition of mathematical giftedness and involvement in their children's mathematics education is the focus of this case study. Data were collected from the parents of 15 children (aged 10-13 years) identified by their schools in New Zealand as mathematically gifted and talented. Many of the parents identified their child's propensity for…

Downs, Nathan; Parisi, Alfio V.; Galligan, Linda; Turner, Joanna; Amar, Abdurazaq; King, Rachel; Ultra, Filipina; Butler, Harry – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
A short series of practical classroom mathematics activities employing the use of a large and publicly accessible scientific data set are presented for use by students in years 9 and 10. The activities introduce and build understanding of integral calculus and trigonometric functions through the presentation of practical problem solving that…

Holopainen, Leena; Taipale, Airi; Savolainen, Hannu – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2017
In this study, the relationship between adolescents' difficulty in mathematics and reading and the influence on academic self-concept and school grades was examined. The participants (N = 585; 299 girls, 286 boys) were one age group of ninth-graders whose mathematics and reading skills were assessed at the end of comprehensive school at age…

Cruz, Jasmine M.; Wilson, Aaron T.; Wang, Xiaohui – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2019
Mathematical dispositions (MD) and self-efficacy for teaching mathematics (SEFTM) are important elements of teachers? beliefs that significantly influence their behaviors and educational practices in the classroom. This study looked at relationships between pre-service teachers? (PSTs) MD and their SEFTM in connection with other descriptors…

Manouchehri, Azita; Yao, Xiangquan; Fleming, Ali; Gomez, Monelle – Athens Journal of Education, 2016
In this work we examined the content of approximately 950 mathematics questions used in measuring achievement among 4th, 5th and 6th graders in the US in an attempt to determine how the current standardized examinations, which were developed to reflect new national curricular mandates, compared to the old measures used for the same purpose. Using…

Steele, Michael D.; Johnson, Kate R.; Otten, Samuel; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth A.; Carver, Cynthia L. – Journal of Research on Leadership Education, 2015
Instructional leadership is integral to improving mathematics teaching in secondary schools. However, administrators often lack sufficient content knowledge in mathematics to be effective in this role. This study examined the impact of professional development focused on developing leadership content knowledge in algebra. Data included written…

McLeod, Kevin; Huinker, Deann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
There has been much debate in recent years as to the amount and type of mathematical knowledge that teachers need to acquire. One set of recommendations is provided by the Mathematical Education of Teachers (MET) report, produced jointly by the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America. This paper reports on efforts…

Lesseig, Kristin – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
Research documenting teachers' fragile understanding of proof and how it is advanced suggests that enhancing the role of proof in school mathematics will demand substantial teacher learning. To date, there is little research detailing what mathematical knowledge might support the teaching of proof or how professional development (PD) might afford…
