Stevens, Alexis; Stevens, John – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
How is the president of the United States elected? Why is this the method used? Is this the best and most efficient way of electing the president of the United States? Questions such as these are well suited for a mathematics discussion that promotes numeracy, because, "notwithstanding the immense value of numeracy for education and vocation,…

Selling, Sarah Kate – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
To learn mathematical practices, students need opportunities to engage in them. But simply providing such opportunities may not be sufficient to support all students. Simultaneously, explicitly teaching mathematical practices could be problematic if instruction becomes prescriptive. This study investigated how teachers might make mathematical…

Gilbert, Melissa C. – Journal of Educational Research, 2016
The author investigated the relationship between aspects of student motivation and performance on mathematical tasks varying in cognitive demand relevant to meeting the expectations of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M). A sample of 479 primarily Latino middle school students completed established survey measures of…

Nasir, Na'ilah Suad; de Royston, Maxine McKinney – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
How issues of power and identity play out in mathematical practices are described by Na'ilah Suad Nasir and Maxine McKinney de Royston. Their article offers a perspective on how to better understand the sociopolitical nature of teaching and learning mathematics. They present data from studies of mathematics teaching and learning in out-of-school…

Gutiérrez, José Francisco – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
This article evaluates the plausibility of synthesizing theory of knowledge objectification (Radford, 2003) with equity research on mathematics education. I suggest the cognitive phenomenon of mathematical inference as a promising locus for investigating the types of agency that equity-driven scholars often care for. In particular, I conceptualize…

Shah, Niral – Teachers College Record, 2017
Background/Context: There is evidence that race affects students' learning experiences in mathematics, a subject typically thought of as "race-neutral" and "culture-free." Research in psychology and sociology has shown that racial narratives (e.g., "Asians are good at math") are pervasive in U.S. culture and play a…

Sengupta-Irving, Tesha – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2014
In this article, the author demonstrates how a broader view of what shapes affinity is ideologically and practically linked to creating democratic learning communities. Specifically, the author explores how a teacher employed complex instruction (an equity pedagogy) with her ethnically and racially diverse students in the "lowest track"…

Guerrero, Shannon – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2010
Teacher knowledge has long been a focus of many educational researchers. Current conceptualizations of teacher knowledge are beginning to reflect the knowledge and skills teachers need to successfully navigate increasingly technologically-rich mathematical classrooms with the addition of knowledge domains such as technological pedagogical content…

Courey, Susan; LePage, Pamela; Blackorby, Jose; Siker, Jody; Nguyen, Trang – International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies, 2015
The Dynabook research project was a collaborative effort aimed at developing and evaluating a new interactive Web-based resource for use in teacher education to improve how teachers learn to teach middle-school mathematics. This paper describes the outcomes of research during a three-year project to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of the…

White, Tobin – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2013
This paper explores the potential of mobile devices to support novel forms of mathematics classroom activity. In particular, I consider two salient aspects of contemporary practice with mobiles--networking/communication, and picture taking--and explore technology designs that might exploit their potential for supporting related forms of…

Kemmerle, Melissa – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2013
Question asking is an important part of the learning process. One of our goals as educators is to encourage students to ask questions that focus on developing conceptual knowledge. To do this, we first need to better understand the factors involved in student question asking. This study looks in depth at one high school mathematics teacher who…

Raychaudhuri, Debasree – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2013
A typical pathway to become a credentialed mathematics teacher in a high school constitutes primarily of three parts; a bachelor's degree, subject matter competency, and the requisite professional education--courses and directed teaching. These are often delivered in a disconnected fashion with little attention given to the context. As research in…

Kreith, Kurt – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
This paper is a descriptive and preliminary report on recent efforts to address two questions: 1) Can school mathematics be used to enhance our students' ability to understand their changing world? and 2) What role might computer technology play in this regard? After recounting some of the mathematical tools that led to a better understanding of…

Erickson, Tim – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2006
In the course of a project to create physics education materials for secondary schools in the USA we have, not surprisingly, had insights into how students develop certain mathematical understandings. Some of these translate directly into the mathematics classroom. With our materials, students get data from a variety of sources, data that arise in…

Finkelstein, Neal; Fong, Anthony; Tiffany-Morales, Juliet; Shields, Patrick; Huang, Min – Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd, 2012
As California competes for jobs in an increasingly competitive global economy, the state faces a looming shortage of highly educated workers (PPIC, 2012). For a variety of reasons, the need for individuals with degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is of particular concern. Nowhere is this more true than in the…
