Dent, Wendy; McChesney, Jane – Teachers and Curriculum, 2016
This paper describes a period of substantial changes in the mathematics curriculum of one primary school in Christchurch. Using retrospective analysis, we identified two important conceptual themes: equity of mathematical learning and opportunities for all students to learn to be a mathematician. Access to research about these themes prompted two…

Kamin, David C. – The Mathematics Educator, 2016
The Common Core State Standards were created with college and career readiness in mind to help prepare students to succeed upon graduation from high school. In this article, I examine college readiness as it has been described by both university mathematicians and educational researchers to precisely discern what will foster success in collegiate…

Sapa, Remigiusz; Krakowska, Monika; Janiak, Malgorzata – Information Research: An International Electronic Journal, 2014
Introduction: The paper presents original research designed to explore and compare selected aspects of the information seeking behaviour of mathematicians (scientists and students) on the Internet. Method: The data were gathered through a questionnaire distributed at the end of 2011 and in January 2012. Twenty-nine professional mathematicians and…

Weber, Keith; Mejia-Ramos, Juan Pablo – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
n a recent article, Inglis and Alcock (2012) contended that their data challenge the claim that when mathematicians validate proofs, they initially skim a proof to grasp its main idea before reading individual parts of the proof more carefully. This result is based on the fact that when mathematicians read proofs in their study, on average their…

Weber, Keith – Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
This paper presents the results of an experiment in which mathematicians were asked to rate how persuasive they found two empirical arguments. There were three key results from this study: (a) Participants judged an empirical argument as more persuasive if it verified that integers possessed an infrequent property than if it verified that integers…

Lai, Yvonne; Jacobson, Erik – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018
This paper focuses on the design of tasks that situate teachers in the work of mathematics teaching. We examine a simple, yet fundamental feature of pedagogical content knowledge tasks: the extent to which pedagogical warrants are necessitated by the pedagogical context. We argue that this feature has implications for the design of tasks, as well…

Armstrong, Abbigail; Ming, Kavin; Helf, Shawnna – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2018
Content area literacy has an important role in helping students understand content in specific disciplines, such as mathematics. Although the strategies are not unique to each individual content area, they are often adapted for use in a specific discipline. For example, mathematicians use mathematical language to make sense of new ideas and…

Marshman, Margaret; Goos, Merrilyn – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Secondary mathematics pre-service teachers often have different experiences of mathematics and its teaching and learning during their initial teacher education. This paper documents the beliefs about mathematics, its teaching, and its learning, of mathematicians and mathematics educators who teach secondary mathematics pre-service teachers. The…

Sella, Francesco; Sader, Elie; Lolliot, Simon; Cohen Kadosh, Roi – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2016
Recent studies have highlighted the potential role of basic numerical processing in the acquisition of numerical and mathematical competences. However, it is debated whether high-level numerical skills and mathematics depends specifically on basic numerical representations. In this study mathematicians and nonmathematicians performed a basic…

Cooper, Jason; Karsenty, Ronnie – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Is it possible that a meeting of mathematicians and primary school teachers will be productive? This question became intriguing when one professor of mathematics initiated a professional development course for practicing primary school teachers, which he taught alongside a group of mathematics Ph.D. students. This report scrutinizes the uncommon…

Bleiler, Sarah K. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Collaborations between mathematicians and mathematics teacher educators are increasingly being expected, and realized, within the context of mathematics teacher education. Most research related to collaborative efforts between members of the mathematics and mathematics education communities has focused on the products, rather than the process of…

Camenga, Kristin A. – PRIMUS, 2017
Inquiry is promoted as a way to engage students so that they learn more deeply; inquiry is also an end in itself, introducing students to the research process and the behaviors of a mathematician. This article reflects on an individual exploratory project used in a sophomore-level number theory course, examining how it supported student inquiry…

Paterson, Judy; Sneddon, Jamie – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
This article reports on the learning conversations between a mathematician and a mathematics educator as they worked together to change the delivery model of a third year discrete mathematics course from a traditional lecture mode to team-based learning (TBL). This change prompted the mathematician to create team tasks which increasingly focused…

Deis, Timothy; Julius, Julie – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
Science, engineering, and mathematics are fields that many students see as separate entities. But if these fields are combined with technology, they become STEM. This investigation provides a context and allows students to explore mathematics, science, and engineering within that context. It requires students to model with mathematics and find…

Christy, Donna; Sparks, Rebecca – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015
The authors have experience with secondary mathematics teacher candidates struggling to make connections between the theoretical abstract algebra course they take as college students and the algebra they will be teaching in secondary schools. As a mathematician and a mathematics educator, the authors collaborated to create and implement a…
