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…

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…
