Myers, Jonté A.; Brownell, Mary T.; Griffin, Cynthia C.; Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Witzel, Bradley S.; Gage, Nicolas A.; Peyton, David; Acosta, Kelly; Wang, Jun – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
We quantitatively synthesized findings of quasi-experimental and randomized control studies of interventions designed to improve the mathematics achievement of secondary school students with mathematics difficulties (MD). We identified 45 studies (49 interventions) published between 1978 and 2020 and classified interventions into five categories:…

Harper, Frances K.; Crespo, Sandra – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
This task structure both engages students in serious, grade-level appropriate mathematical work and allows the teacher to do the intentional and purposeful work of building a collaborative classroom culture. We highlight possibilities for adapting this task structure to teach different mathematics content across grade levels 3-5.

Taylor, Peter – Education Sciences, 2018
The secondary-school mathematics curriculum is narrow in scope and technical in character; this is quite different from the nature of the discipline itself. As a result, it offers little inspiration to both students and teachers, and provides students with poor preparation for university mathematics courses and indeed for life. Over the past…

Quinn, Diana; Aarão, Jorge – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
There are many choices for learning mathematics for engineering students with courses available in face-to-face, blended and fully online modalities. Students are demanding more flexibility in their programs, however the temptation to misuse this flexibility to avoid mathematical studies until it is too late can be an unfortunate side effect. A…

Davidson, Aylie; Sawatzki, Carly; Zmood, Simone – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
The economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is exposing more and more Australians to financial loss, hardship and poverty. Even primary-aged students may be privy to conversations about unemployment, business closures, household budgeting, and difficulties making ends meet. Mathematics is a powerful tool that can raise awareness of inequity…

Hoon, Teoh Sian; Yusof, Mohammad Mubarrak bin Mohd; Rasid, Nor Syazwani Mohd; Mohamed, Siti Rosiah binti; Mohd, Ainun Hafizah binti – Asian Journal of University Education, 2020
The desire to equip students with 21st-century skills has prompted teachers to find alternative ways to promote real learning of mathematics. One of these ways includes building communities of best practices, with the collaborative efforts of parents. This study aims to investigate how mathematics teaching communities develop mathematical…

Waid, Brandie E. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
In this article, the author discusses strategies for creating more equitable K-12 mathematics experiences for LGBTQ+ students. Strategies range from engaging in self-education, creating LGBTQ+ inclusive classroom spaces, and adopting LGBTQ+ inclusive curriculum and queer pedagogy. The importance of considering school context while engaging in this…

O'Shea, Ann; Breen, Sinead; Meehan, Maria – Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 2018
We report on a study of decision-making in mathematics lectures. The data comes from accounts of classroom incidents written over two academic years by three university mathematics lecturers who set out to reflect on, and improve, their practice by collectively engaging in a professional development project using Mason's Discipline of Noticing.…

Cullen, Craig J.; Hertel, Joshua T.; Nickels, Megan – Educational Forum, 2020
We review literature relevant to using technology in the teaching/learning of mathematics to highlight four roles of effective technology use: (a) promoting cycles of proof; (b) presenting and connecting multiple representations; (c) supporting case-based reasoning; and (d) serving as a tutee. We then discuss how they intersect with good…
