Jao, Limin; Wiseman, Dawn; Kobiela, Marta; Gonsalves, Allison; Savard, Annie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Research indicates that learning about teaching methods is not the same as learning to enact teaching methods. In our mathematics and science teacher education programs, we employ a practice-based pedagogy approach requiring novice teachers to learn, practice, enact, and reflect on their teaching. This approach draws on work highlighting core…

Lee, Mi Yeon; Lee, Ji-Eun – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
To shed light on the value of the area model as a tool to elicit pre-service teachers' (PSTs') understanding of fractions and area, we explored their understanding of the fractional knowledge and geometric measurement knowledge incorporated in the area model by providing PSTs area models in an "atypical" way. We administered a written…

Hodges, Thomas E.; Hodge, Lynn Liao – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This article explores the personal identities of two prospective elementary teachers as they progressed from mathematics methods coursework into their capstone student teaching semester. Results indicate that both prospective teachers perceived contrasting obligations of effective mathematics teaching in the teacher education and student teaching…

Zhang, Shuang; Wang, Jian; Flores, Raymond – Action in Teacher Education, 2021
The analysis of word problem types and schema-based diagrams are assumed useful for helping students and thus, important for preservice teachers to learn in their preparation programs. Drawing on pre-and post-assessments and videotaped demonstrations, this study analyzed elementary preservice teachers' understanding of addition and subtraction…

Bahr, Damon; Monroe, Eula E.; Shaha, Steven H. – School Science and Mathematics, 2013
The purpose of this study was to compare changes in beliefs of two groups of preservice teachers involved in two types of opportunities to immediately apply methods for teaching accompanying an elementary mathematics methods course. Students in one group applied the methods learned in class through weekly 30-minute peer-teaching sessions, while…

Cavanna, Jillian M.; Drake, Corey; Pak, Byungeun – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
Mathematics teacher education is faced with the challenge of preparing new teachers for ambitious instruction, but we have limited understandings of what happens within the courses where this preparation occurs. This paper draws on interview data from of a larger investigation of novices' enactment of ambitious instruction in elementary…

Stehr, Eryn; Jung, Hyunyi; Newton, Jill – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
Although research and policy documents provide recommendations to inform secondary mathematics teacher preparation, no single study has addressed the "big ideas" of courses in multiple programs and how those big ideas may be interpreted through the lens of recent research and policy documents. To answer this need, we focused on big ideas…

Magee, Paula A.; Flessner, Ryan – Science Education International, 2012
This study examines the effect of promoting inquiry-based teaching (IBT) through collaboration between a science methods course and mathematics methods course in an elementary teacher education program. During the collaboration, preservice elementary teacher (PST) candidates experienced 3 different types of inquiry as a way to foster increased…

Taylor, Cynthia E.; Smith, Ryan C. – The Mathematics Educator, 2019
In this study, we examined five mathematics teacher educators' (MTEs') interpretation of the situative perspective, who self-identify as holding that perspective. Furthermore, we share how they designed and facilitated their secondary mathematics methods course pertaining to the activities they identified as most important for the course. We…

Earnest, Darrell; Amador, Julie M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Curriculum materials are integral to the mathematics classroom, yet little is known about how teachers read curriculum in order to envision enactment. Through an assignment involving an approximation of actual teaching practice, we investigated prospective teachers' documentational genesis (Pepin et al. in ZDM 45:929-943, 2013) from curriculum…

Setra, Abdelghani – ProQuest LLC, 2017
For the last thirty years research has unfailingly shown that teacher efficacy has a positive impact on student outcomes, making teacher efficacy an critical element in quality mathematics instruction. The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of a math methods course on the mathematics teaching efficacy beliefs of elementary pre-service…

McGlamery, Sheryl L.; Franks, Bridget A.; Shillingstad, Saundra L. – Metropolitan Universities, 2016
This study describes two years of findings with a unique field experience (teaching science inquiry activities to African-American girls in a summer STEM camp) for preservice elementary education majors. It reports on the effects of the field experience, in conjunction with blocked science and mathematics methods courses, on preservice teachers'…

Johnston, Barbara M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper describes and analyses the implementation of a "flipped classroom" approach, in an undergraduate mathematics course on numerical methods. The approach replaced all the lecture contents by instructor-made videos and was implemented in the consecutive years 2014 and 2015. The sequential case study presented here begins with an…

Amador, Julie M. – Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
The purpose of this study was to implement a Video Simulation Task in a mathematics methods teacher education course to engage preservice teachers in considering both the teaching and learning aspects of mathematics lesson delivery. Participants anticipated student and teacher thinking and created simulations, in which they acted out scenes on a…
