Holm, Jennifer; Kajander, Ann; Avoseh, Jimmy – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
This study investigated the effect of different aspects of mathematics knowledge for teaching on performance in upper elementary mathematics methods courses. In the Ontario (Canada) context, prospective teachers have been, until the 2015-2016 school year, able to obtain a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree in as little as eight months after a…

Bouck, Emily C.; Sands, Phil; Long, Holly; Yadav, Aman – Teacher Education and Special Education, 2021
Increasingly in K-12 schools, students are gaining access to computational thinking (CT) and computer science (CS). This access, however, is not always extended to students with disabilities. One way to increase CT and CS (CT/CS) exposure for students with disabilities is through preparing special education teachers to do so. In this study,…

Shah, Niral; Coles, Justin A. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2020
Race-focused teacher education has centered on changing preservice teachers' racial beliefs and attitudes. In this article, we build on this work by exploring how preservice teachers identify and address issues of race and racism in the everyday work of teaching and learning. To conceptualize these processes, we propose the theoretical framework…

Johnson, Todd M.; Byrd, Kelly O.; Allison, Elizabeth R. – School Science and Mathematics, 2021
The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the impact of co-taught integrated STEM methods instruction on preservice elementary teachers' self-efficacy for teaching science and mathematics within an integrated STEM framework. Two instructional methods courses (Elementary Mathematics Methods and Elementary Science Methods) were redesigned to…

Webb, Donna L.; LoFaro, Keelan P. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This study investigated the effect of a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) methods course on elementary preservice teachers' (PTs') perceptions of self-efficacy to teach engineering practices. The course positioned engineering as the primary content area from which to integrate other subjects. To enhance PTs'…

Schwartz, Catherine Stein – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2012
This study describes implementation of the same problem-solving activity in both online and face-to-face environments. The activity, done in the first class period or first module of a K-2 mathematics methods course, was initially used in a face-to-face class and then adapted later for use in an online class. While the task was originally designed…

Carbonneau, Kira J.; Zhang, Xue; Ardasheva, Yuliya – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
In this study, we examine how prospective teachers perceive the efficacy of manipulatives and if these perceptions relate to their future use of manipulatives and their mathematics self-efficacy. Survey responses from 97 preservice educators who had completed a mathematics method course indicate three essential findings. One, preservice teachers…

Johnson, Todd; Byrd, Kelly; Giles, Rebecca – Research Issues in Contemporary Education, 2018
Data on content knowledge and self-efficacy beliefs were collected from 41 elementary preservice teachers enrolled in a mathematics methods course. Correlational analysis was used to determine whether a relationship existed between elementary preservice teachers' mathematics content knowledge (MCK) and two factors representing mathematics teacher…

Madkins, Tia C.; Morton, Karisma – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2021
If we envision a future for Black young learners where their full humanity is honoured and educators facilitate rigorous science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning experiences that are justice-focused, "we must disrupt systemic racism now." In this article we discuss how anti-Blackness is pervasive in science and…

Hill, Heather C.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Chin, Mark J. – Educational Policy, 2019
Diverse stakeholders have an interest in understanding how teacher characteristics--their preparation and experience, knowledge, and mind-sets and habits--relate to students' outcomes in mathematics. Past research has extensively explored this issue but often examined each characteristic in isolation. Drawing on data from roughly 300 fourth- and…

Simpson, Amber – Studying Teacher Education, 2019
This research utilized self-study methodology to examine my experience as a novice elementary mathematics teacher educator whose foundation was a high school mathematics teacher and graduate training in secondary mathematics education. By analyzing video data of the weekly mathematics methods course, I relived moments in which I masked my…

Whitehead, Ashley N.; Walkowiak, Temple A. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
This study examined pre-service elementary teachers' change in their understanding of fraction operations while taking a mathematics methods course. Specifically, their explanations and justifications for common algorithms for multiplication and division of fractions were coded using an existing framework (SOLO; Biggs, 1999) for the assessment of…

Jong, Cindy; Dueber, David; Schack, Edna O.; Fisher, Molly H.; Thomas, Jonathan – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
This research report describes a study that explored the intersections of professional noticing of children's mathematical thinking (PN), pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), and affective domains with preservice elementary teachers (PSETs). An instructional module on professional noticing, as defined by Jacobs, Lamb, and Philipp (2010), included…

Vincent, Jill; Pierce, Robyn; Bardini, Caroline – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2017
In this article the authors analyze the written solutions of some first year undergraduate mathematics students from Victorian universities as they answered tutorial exercise questions relating to complex numbers and differentiation. These students had studied at least Mathematics Methods or its equivalent at secondary school. Complex numbers was…

Buchheister, Kelley; Jackson, Christa; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Traditionally, teacher education programs have placed little emphasis on preparing mathematics teachers to work with students who struggle in mathematics. Therefore, it is crucial that mathematics teacher educators explicitly prepare prospective teachers to instruct students who struggle with mathematics by providing strategies and practices that…
