Drake, Michael R. A. – Studying Teacher Education, 2016
In some forms of practice-based teacher education, one important task for the teacher educator is to undertake in-the-moment coaching during rehearsals of practice. However, being such a coach is a new role for many teacher educators and requires a different skill set to other forms of teacher educator practice. In addition, there is little…

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…

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…

Thompson, Zain; Hunter, Jodie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
In the current reform of mathematics classrooms teachers are charged with the role of facilitating collaborative groups during problem-solving activity. The challenge is for teachers to engage students in making mathematical meaning during collaborative group discussions. In this paper we draw on the concept of adaptive expertise to report on…

Averill, Robin; Drake, Michael; Anderson, Dayle; Anthony, Glenda – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2016
Managing mathematical discussion is known to be challenging for novice teachers. Coaching within student teacher rehearsals of teaching has been shown to develop mathematics teaching practice, but can be time consuming. To examine how coaching using questions could assist novice teachers to promote mathematical thinking and discussions within…

Bailey, Judy – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2014
Preparing to become an effective primary school mathematics teacher is a challenging and complex task; and is influenced by one's past experiences, personal knowledge of, and beliefs and attitudes towards mathematics. This paper examines the experiences of a small group of pre-service teachers who did not pass their first year mathematics…

Bailey, Judy; Taylor, Merilyn – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2015
Learning to teach is a complex matter, and many different models of pre-service teacher education have been used to support novice teachers' preparation for the classroom. More recently there have been calls for a focus on core high-leverage teaching practices and for novice teachers to engage in representations, decompositions, and approximations…

Anthony, Glenda; McLachlan, Claire; Lim Fock Poh, Rachel – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015
Narratives that capture children's learning as they go about their day-to-day activities are promoted as a powerful assessment tool within early childhood settings. However, in the New Zealand context, there is increasing concern that learning stories--the preferred form of narrative assessment--currently downplay domain knowledge. In this paper,…

Pournara, C. – Perspectives in Education, 2016
Depth and rigour in mathematical knowledge for pre-service secondary school mathematics teachers may be found in particular experiences of learning and doing school-level mathematics. Drawing on two cases from a course on financial mathematics for secondary school teachers, I illustrate opportunities for exploring compound and exponential growth.…
