Ortiz, Enrique – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2020
This paper details an exploratory study of ten elementary preservice teachers (PSTs) involvement in the problem-solving process in a mathematics methods course. The dynamic, messy and nonlinear nature of this process was demonstrated by discussing PSTs' solution process of an open box construction problem. Effective approaches to solve this…

Valentine, Keri Duncan – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
With an increased push to integrate coding and computational literacy in K-12 learning environments, teacher educators will need to consider ways they might support preservice teachers (PSTs). This paper details a tinkering approach used to engage PSTs in thinking computationally as they worked with geometric concepts they will be expected to…

Grant, Melva; Ferguson, Sarah – Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, 2021
For this study, Mursion TeachLivE™ simulation afforded virtual microteaching opportunities for elementary prospective teachers (PTs) enrolled in online mathematics method courses over two years. We assert that virtual microteaching (i.e., leading student-centered discussion after problem solving) using customized Mursion simulation coupled with…

Martinez, Mara Vanina; Superfine, Alison Castro; Carlton, Theresa; Dasgupta, Chandan – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2015
This paper focuses on results from a study conducted with two cohorts of pre-service teachers (PSTs) in a video case-based mathematics methods course at a large Midwestern university in the US. The motivation for this study was to look beyond whether or not PSTs pay attention to mathematical thinking of students, as shown by previous studies when…

Cormas, Peter C. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Preservice teachers in six sections (n = 87) of a sequenced, methodological and process-integrated elementary mathematics/science methods course were able to reconcile an issue centered on a similar area of epistemology. Preservice teachers participated in a science inquiry lesson on biological classification and a mathematics problem-solving…

Jong, Cindy; Jackson, Christa – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
Teaching for social justice is a critical pedagogy used to empower students to be social agents in the world they live. This critical pedagogy has extended to mathematics education. Over the last decade, mathematics education researchers have conceptualized what it means to teach mathematics for social justice, but little is known about preservice…

Dogan, Mustafa; Taspinar Sener, Zehra – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2020
The aim of this study is to determine the teaching activities of pre-service teachers in the course of mathematics teaching methods. All of the pre-service teachers have selected an attainment content from the primary (1-4) mathematics education curriculum at the beginning of the semester in the scope of mathematics teaching methods course. Data…

Maiorca, Cathrine; Mohr-Schroeder, Margaret J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) integration is a desired outcome according to Next Generation Science Standards. However, learning to teach integrated STEM content has been challenging for teachers. Consequently, the purpose of this qualitative study was to describe how 16 preservice teachers enrolled in a mathematics…

Ewing, Jim; Gresham, Gloria Jeanie; Dickey, Benjamin – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
Engaging in productive struggle--grappling with challenging problems--is conducive to understanding mathematics. This paper examines five pre-service teachers as they learned to engage English language learners in productive struggle. The context of this descriptive case study was an elementary mathematics methods course in the Northeastern United…

Green, Katherine B.; Stuckey, Adrienne; Towson, Jacqueline A.; Robbins, Sandra H.; Bucholz, Jessica L. – Journal of Special Education Technology, 2020
In undergraduate college courses, assignments designed to showcase preservice teacher learning traditionally include classroom presentations, papers, projects, and tests. Often, these activities do not translate into permanent products that will be utilized outside the course. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of…

Saran, Rupam; Gujarati, Joan – Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, 2013
This article explores how preservice elementary teachers change their negative beliefs toward mathematics into positive ones after taking a mathematics methods course that follows the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) instructional method. Also explored is the relationship between those beliefs and sociomathematical authority. By administering…
