Cunningham, Robert F.; Cook, Kimberly N. – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2020
This study used a pretest-posttest design to explore the scoring by female preservice teachers (n=25) of student responses to a pattern problem. The treatment consisted of a cooperative activity that required the preservice teachers to assign scores to a rubric intended to enhance careful attention to student reasoning expressed in written…

Patterson, Blain – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2020
In this study, we examine the connections between real analysis concepts and secondary mathematics content. This is accomplished by conducting a textbook analysis of a commonly used real analysis textbook. Concepts from the real analysis textbook were mapped to the Common Core State Standards-Mathematics (2010) to determine the relationship…

Chesler, Joshua; Chang, Jen-Mei – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
The United States' Common Core Standards for Mathematics give a prominent role for mathematical modeling in the K-12 curriculum. This has implications and creates challenges for teacher preparation programs. We describe one program's attempt to meet these challenges with a course in mathematical modeling for pre-service secondary mathematics…

Pair, Jeffrey; Johnson, Kim; Lee, Carrie W.; Sawyer, Amanda G. – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
In this essay, we describe some challenges that mathematics teacher educators may face when teaching content courses for future elementary and middle school teachers. We summarize research that suggests students in content courses may have fixed mindsets, unproductive beliefs, and mathematics anxiety that can interfere with their ability to learn…

Max, Brooke; Amstutz, Molly – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
Mathematics content for elementary teachers (MCfET) courses generally provide prospective elementary teachers (PTs) with opportunities to engage with mathematical content and consider it from a teacher's perspective, yet little is known about the intended curriculum of such courses. Findings from an analysis of MCfET course activities using the…

Ewing, Jim; Gresham, Gloria Jeanie; Dickey, Benjamin – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
Engaging in productive struggle--grappling with challenging problems--is conducive to understanding mathematics. This paper examines five pre-service teachers as they learned to engage English language learners in productive struggle. The context of this descriptive case study was an elementary mathematics methods course in the Northeastern United…

Kalinec-Craig, Crystal A.; Prasad, Priya V.; Mira, Raquel Vallines; Walls, Carey – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
This paper details an exploratory study of 14 elementary prospective teachers (PTs) solving purposefully crafted, two-digit addition problems. The numbers in each problem were chosen to elicit diverse solution strategies. We coded 95 responses based on the ways the PTs completed the calculation (for example, by referring to the number as…

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…

Jeffery, Tonya D.; Hobson, Lisa D.; Conoyer, Sarah J.; Miller, Karyn E.; Leach, Lesley F. – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2018
Mathematics teacher quality has become a major focus in national education reform efforts. In addition, there is an increasing interest in the effectiveness of teacher preparation programs and the undergraduate preparation of elementary mathematics teachers. Empirical evidence suggests that teacher attitudes, behaviors and values, or dispositions,…

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…
