van der Sandt, Suriza – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2018
Current educational reform in mathematics education reflects attempts to incorporate the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS decrees both content standards and mathematical practices (process standards) that students should master if they are to be sufficiently prepared for college or a career. This paper investigates the confidence…

Johnson, Gwendolyn; Jorgensen, Theresa; Fuentes, Sarah Quebec; Kribs-Zaleta, Christopher M.; Gawlik, Christina – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2018
Teachers' mathematics content knowledge has been shown to be correlated with children's learning. Because teachers often enter teacher preparation programs with weak content knowledge, the college level mathematics courses they take can have a significant impact on the development of that knowledge. The present study examines the mathematics…

Murray, Eileen; Baldinger, Erin; Wasserman, Nicholas; Broderick, Shawn; White, Diana – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2017
There is an ongoing debate among scholars in understanding what mathematical knowledge secondary teachers should have in order to provide effective instruction. We explore connections between advanced and secondary mathematics as an entry point into this debate. In many cases, advanced mathematics is considered relevant for secondary teachers…

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…

Jung, Hyunyi; Strikwerda, Sarah L.; Park, Joyce; Newton, Jill – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2017
This study investigates secondary mathematics preservice teachers' (M-PSTs') opportunities to learn about algebra as reported by five teacher preparation programs. Ten focus group interview transcripts were analyzed using systematic grounded theory. When M-PSTs mentioned specific algebra tasks during the focus group interviews, the instructors'…

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…

Chesler, Joshua – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2015
Undergraduate mathematics programs must prepare teachers for the challenges of teaching statistical thinking as advocated in standards documents and statistics education literature. This study investigates the statistical thinking of pre-service secondary mathematics teachers at the end of their undergraduate educations. Although all had completed…

Turgut, Melih – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2015
This study investigated the effects of gender, academic performance and preschool education on mental rotation skills among Turkish prospective teachers. A total of 525 undergraduate students (364 female) from a government university located in western Turkey completed the Mental Rotation Test (MRT). A three-way [2 (gender) × 5 (academic…

Stavrou, Stavros Georgios – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2014
Ninety-seven education students majoring or minoring in mathematics had their math homework examined in a Number Theory or Abstract Algebra course. Each student's homework was observed for the purpose of identifying common errors and misconceptions when writing mathematical proofs. The results showed that students collectively made four…

Bargagliotti, Anna E.; Jacobbe, Tim; Webb, Derek – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2014
Since the prevalence of data and statistics in the media and workplace has greatly increased over the past few decades, the teaching of statistics in K-12 grades has also increased. This necessitates that teachers be ready to teach statistical concepts throughout the grade levels. The recently adopted Common Core State Standards for Mathematics…
