Ortiz, Enrique – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2017
This study analyzed pre-service teachers' ability to identify and implement cognitive levels. The framework involved the use of the Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract (CPA) cognitive levels combined with the Virtual-level (CPVA-levels). The V-level involves applets and apps, and three digital-dynamic sublevels: virtual-Concrete, virtual-Pictorial…

Clooney, Sarah; Cunningham, Robert F. – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2017
This study examined the perspectives of what high-quality mathematics instruction looks like. Written responses from preservice (n = 20) and inservice (n = 16) mathematics teachers were collected and categorized according to the Ten Principles developed by Anthony & Walshaw (2009). The responses of preservice teachers more often than inservice…

Barry, Arlene L.; Gay, A. Susan; Pelkey, M. Lisa; Rothrock, Katrina – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2017
Student teachers informed their professors that it was no longer the practice to use traditional textbooks to teach mathematics to teens. This notion caused the authors to undertake a nationwide survey to inquire about the types of math text used by novice teachers. Responses showed that a textbook did continue dominance. A majority said they…

Alvey, Christina; Hudson, Rick A.; Newton, Jill; Males, Lorraine M. – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2016
This study analyzes the responses of 12 secondary pre-service teachers on two tasks focused on reasoning when solving linear equations. By documenting the choices PSTs made while engaging in these tasks, we gain insight into how new teachers work mathematically, reason algebraically, communicate their thinking, and make pedagogical decisions. We…
