Melinda Lanius; Jingyi Zheng; Ash Abebe – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2024
Math anxiety and academic distress, two interrelated forms of psychological stress, are pervasive problems for undergraduate mathematics students. Most of the research in this area has taken a broad view of the impact this stress has on students' learning across an entire course or, more broadly, the entire curriculum for their degree. To…

Puskar R. Joshi – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2024
The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2019 assessment results show a drop in mathematics achievement among Hong Kongese students. While several predictors associated with Hong Kongese students' declining mathematics outcomes in recent years have been explored, only a few of them have interrogated the relationship of…

Robert Weinhandl; Martin Mayerhofer; Branko Andic; Cornelia S. Große – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2024
Our research aimed to identify factors of motivation and affect to best characterize upper secondary mathematics students and correlations between these factors. This work is based on personas, a tool from user experience research for representing the needs and characteristics of users of a system, developed in prior research. In the present…

Jessica de la Cruz; Samantha Goldman – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2024
Considering the prevalence of mathematics teacher shortages in the United States, together with declining enrollments in teacher preparation programs, it is crucial for districts and teacher preparation programs alike to investigate new recruitment initiatives. In this pilot study, a university aimed to increase high school students' interest in…

Jarry-Shore, Michael; Delaney, Victoria; Borko, Hilda – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
A common approach to scaling up a professional development program is for the researchers who designed the program to prepare teacher leaders to facilitate it at their schools. When researchers eventually leave, however, teacher leaders may receive less support. To ensure that teacher leaders continue receiving support, researchers can prepare…

Gibbons, Lynsey; Okun, Ada – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
Mathematics specialists tasked with the responsibility of supporting teacher learning face both the opportunity and the challenge of transforming the organization of the school workplace to support educators' collective, ongoing learning, which is not the norm in most school settings. In this study, we examine a coaching routine called…

Elliott, Rebekah; Lesseig, Kristin – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
A critical aspect of Mathematics Teacher Leaders' (MTLs) multi-faceted work is facilitating collective disciplinary discussions relevant and accessible for teachers. While research has identified goals for teacher learning, how MTLs learn to support these goals in content-specific ways is still under investigation. In this study, we lift the…

Swars Auslander, Susan; Tanguay, Carla L.; Myers, Kayla D.; Bingham, Gary E.; Caldwell, Sterline; Vo, Michael – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
This 5-year mathematics professional development project involves 27 elementary teachers prepared and supported as Elementary Mathematics Specialists (EMSs) in high-need, urban schools. The EMSs are a distinctive population as informal teacher leaders, with a primary responsibility of teaching students. Described here are data collected at the end…

Rigelman, Nicole; Lewis, Chandra – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
Transforming mathematics learning and teaching toward more equitable and effective approaches is critical to student mathematics learning and identity development. This task at-scale in a district takes time, commitment, and mathematics expertise that may not be widespread in the absence of focused professional development. District and regional…

Heon, Nikole; Mills, Melissa – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
Infinite series are known to be challenging for Calculus II students, perhaps because they lack intellectual need for the content. In their analysis of Calculus textbooks found few instances of potential intellectual needs for infinite series. This study combines a textbook analysis with interviews of four professors and observations of their…

Wessman-Enzinger, Nicole M.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
We know that making mistakes in mathematics is an inherent attribute of doing mathematics deeply. Yet, making mistakes is at the root of mathematical fear and anxiety for elementary preservice teachers (PSTs). Valuing mistakes in mathematics is an essential part of shifting from deficient views to asset views of mistakes and having better…

Lee, Hwa Young; Guajardo, Lino – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
Understanding and supporting students' development of graph literacy is important. We studied how aspects of graph literacy might be supported (or hindered) in middle school by analyzing the content in textbooks. Specifically, we conducted a content analysis of tasks involving two-dimensional Cartesian graphs presented in grade 6-8 US textbooks.…

Moeller, Babette; Rothschild, Karen; Duncan, Teresa; Schoeneberger, Jason – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
This article reports findings that describe the role that school- and district-based facilitators play in scaling up a published mathematics professional learning program. The study included 12 local facilitators (three teacher leaders and nine staff developers with specialization in mathematics, special education, or English learner education)…

Jackson, Christa; Buchheister, Kelley Woolford; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
Lesson planning is a crucial component of effective mathematics instruction. However, existing lesson planning frameworks and design models do not explicitly foreground equity and inclusion within instructional planning which are necessary in teaching every student. The What-How-Who structure frames the planning process by foregrounding who the…

Keazer, Lindsay; Phaiah, Jennifer – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2023
This paper shares findings from the study of a learning sequence designed to support prospective elementary teachers (PTs) in identifying evidence of conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. Conceptual understanding and procedural fluency are widely recognized as important to teaching and learning mathematics, and identifying evidence of…
