Skultety, Lisa; Saclarides, Evthokia Stephanie; Bajwa, Neet Priya; Brown, Karie; Poetzel, Adam; Gerardo, Juan Manuel – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
We, six elementary mathematics teacher educators (MTEs), noticed that many of our elementary pre-service teachers (EPSTs) were limited by their views of mathematics, typically as the result of their prior experiences with learning mathematics. Much of the research around such limiting views focuses primarily on negative experiences or treats such…

Cotic, Mara; Doz, Daniel; Valencic Zuljan, Milena; Žakelj, Amalija; Felda, Darjo – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
In the present study, we were interested in the appraisal by teachers who have had experience with an individual form of differentiation of the efficiency of grouping learners into homogenous or heterogeneous groups. In the study, seven aspects were thus considered: (1) the learning performance and motivation of learners, (2) the learners'…

Yilmaz, Nadide; Yetkin Ozdemir, Iffet Elif – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
It is important to note that the development of pre-service teachers' noticing abilities does not happen spontaneously; hence, assistance programs are crucial. This qualitative study aimed to examine pre-service teachers' noticing of student thinking within the context of lesson study. Three pre-service teachers conducted three lesson study…

Castro-Rodríguez, Elena; Ruiz-Hidalgo, Juan F.; Lupiáñez, Jose L.; Fernández-Plaza, Jose A.; Rico, Luis; Segovia, Isidoro; Flores, Pablo – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The formulation of learning objectives is considered an important task for teaching at all educational levels. However, teachers tend to trivialize learning objectives and consider them as part of an administrative requirement. This study sought to characterize the specific learning objectives for two school mathematics tasks posed by primary…

Joshua, Surani; Lee, Mi Yeon – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
In this study we investigated pre-service teachers' (PSTs) proportional reasoning and how they interpret their calculations in proportional tasks. We administered a written questionnaire to 199 PSTs and used an inductive content analysis approach for data analysis. We found that one item, in which PSTs were asked to interpret the meaning of the…

Kosko, Karl W. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Professional teacher noticing is a key skill in preparing future elementary mathematics teachers, with the goal of increasing the specificity and sophistication of noticing children's mathematical reasoning. One common effort scholars have engaged to improve teachers' professional noticing is to improve the quality of representation. Recently,…

Henschen, Esther; Teschner, Martina; Vogler, Anna-Marietha – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Since the 2000s, early co-constructive mathematical learning in kindergarten has focused on political discussions and (mathematical-didactic) research. This is because kindergarten is the first place for subject-specific learning, next to socialization in the family. Research on this first institutional learning in the kindergarten often focuses…

Uddin, Muhammad Sharif – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
This mini-ethnographic study investigated the role of the student-teaching experience on removing student teachers' math anxiety. Data were collected from four elementary student teachers using semi-structured individual and group interviews during the second phase of their student-teaching period. Thematic content analysis was used to analyze…

Portaankorva-Koivisto, Päivi Maria; Laine, Anu Tuulikki; Ahtee, Maija – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The use of open problem-solving tasks in mathematics education challenges teachers' beliefs, knowledge and practices. This article examines the practices of two primary teachers and their 3rd to 5th grade classes during a three-year in-service teacher training project aiming to increase mathematical problem-solving in class. Three lesson videos…

Engledowl, Christopher; Webel, Corey; Yeo, Sheunghyun – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has consistently emphasized the importance of curricular coherence in mathematics education. However, the predominance of the Internet has led to a lack of consistency in the use and quality of curricular materials. We drew on teachers' self-report of their use of curriculum materials and conducted a…
