Barwell, Richard – Language and Education, 2013
Mathematics curricula increasingly emphasise the importance of mathematical communication. Students are seen as progressing from the use of a more informal or everyday form of communication to a more mathematical approach. There have, however, been very few studies of how mathematicians actually talk about mathematics. This paper reports analysis…

Berch, Daniel B. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2005
Drawing on various approaches to the study of mathematics learning, Gersten, Jordan, and Flojo (in this issue) explore the implications of this research for identifying children at risk for developing mathematical disabilities. One of the key topics Gersten et al. consider in their review is that of "number sense." I expand on their…

Valero, Paola – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This paper comments on Arthur Powell's plenary paper "The Diversity Backlash and the Mathematical Agency of Students of Color". A highlight of some of the main arguments in Arthur's paper is offered, and questions are raised concerning elements of importance in setting a research agenda committed to equity in mathematics education. [For "The…

Abrahamson, Dor; Gutierrez, Jose; Charoenying, Timothy; Negrete, Andrea; Bumbacher, Engin – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2012
How do instructors guide students to discover mathematical content? Are current explanatory models of pedagogical practice suitable to capture pragmatic essentials of discovery-based instruction? We examined videographed data from the implementation of a natural user interface design for proportions, so as to determine one constructivist tutor's…

Østern, Tone Pernille; Øyen, Elen – Journal of Dance Education, 2014
This study reflects on a research and development project between two dance practitioners, one of them a wheelchair user, working together to develop pedagogical design within teacher education at a university in Norway. The aim of the authors is to encourage student teachers toward becoming inclusive and brave teachers who define diversity among…

Broadfoot, Patricia; Black, Paul – Assessment in Education Principles Policy and Practice, 2004
The completion of the first ten years of this journal is an occasion for review and reflection. The main issues that have been addressed over the ten years are summarized in four main sections: Purposes, International Trends, Quality Concerns and Assessment for Learning. Each of these illustrates the underlying significance of the themes of…

Barwell, Richard; Leung, Constant; Morgan, Candia; Street, Brian – Mathematics Teaching, 2002
Explores how to develop children's understanding of mathematical vocabulary. Presents a lesson in which the class works on the concept of dimension, and issues raised by a discussion of applied linguistics and mathematics education. Discussion was stimulated by advice from the National Numeracy Strategy (NNS) vocabulary book. (KHR)

Cobb, Paul – Educational Researcher, 1994
Argues that mathematical learning should be viewed as a process of active individual construction and a process of enculturation into the mathematical practices of wider society. It further argues that the sociocultural perspective theorizes the conditions for the possibility of learning, whereas constructivist perspectives focus on what students…

Biasi, C.; Zuffi, E.M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2005
The main purpose in this note is to provide a generalization of the concept of mean, using the algebraic structure of commutative semigroups. Also, the pedagogical aim is to discuss with undergraduate math students the idea of generalizing a concept or a structure as a typical mathematical activity.

Scott, Victor – Principal Leadership, 2001
Discusses four secondary-school mathematics department practices that lead to poor student performance in mathematics: Emphasizing memorization of facts and algorithmic rules, passing without proficiency, using internal rather than external criteria of competence, and prioritizing coverage over proficiency. Recommends emphasis on achieving…

Reys, Robert E. – Notices of the American Mathematical Society, 2000
This essay reports on the shortage of doctorates in mathematics education. The history of the production of doctorates in mathematics education is discussed as are the factors influencing supply and demand. Statistics are presented that indicate that almost 80% of faculty in mathematics education will be eligible for retirement in the years 2000-…

de Oliveira Souza, Leandro; Lopes, Celi Espasandin; Pfannkuch, Maxine – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2015
The recent introduction of statistics into the Brazilian curriculum has presented a multi-problematic situation for teacher professional development. Drawing on research in the areas of teacher development and statistical inquiry, we propose a Teacher Professional Development Cycle (TPDC) model. This paper focuses on two teachers who planned a…
