Lubienski, Sarah Theule; Ganley, Colleen M.; Makowski, Martha B.; Miller, Emily K.; Timmer, Jennifer D. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
Despite progress toward gender equity, troubling disparities in mathematical problem-solving performance and related outcomes persist. To investigate why, we build on recurrent findings in previous studies to introduce a new construct, "bold problem solving," which involves approaching mathematics problems in inventive ways. We introduce…

Battey, Dan; Bartell, Tonya; Webel, Corey; Lowry, Amanda – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
Recent international studies have found that teachers' attitudes, biased against historically marginalized groups, predict lower student achievement in mathematics (e.g., van den Bergh et al., 2010). It is not clear, however, if or how teachers' racial attitudes affect their evaluation of students' mathematical thinking to produce these effects.…

McCulloch, Allison W.; Leatham, Keith R.; Lovett, Jennifer N.; Bailey, Nina Gabrielle; Reed, Samuel D. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
The field of mathematics teacher education has been moving collectively toward a common goal of preparing prospective mathematics teachers to teach with technology. In this article, we present findings from a national survey of accredited university secondary mathematics teacher education programs. The purpose of the study is to describe the…

Leyva, Luis A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
This article proposes and employs a framework that characterizes mathematics education as a white, patriarchal space to analyze undergraduate Black women's narratives of experience in navigating P-16 mathematics education. The framework guided a counter-storytelling analysis that captured variation in Black women's experiences of within-group…

Santana, Macarena; Nussbaum, Miguel; Claro, Susana; Piza, Sebasti├ín; Imbarack, Patricia; Loeb, Susanna – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
Even when parents have the time required to support their children's education, they can increase their children's anxiety about school when they try to help, especially if they are not confident in their own abilities. This study measures the effects of having parents complete nonacademic schoolwork with their teenage children. Half of the 422…

Conner, AnnaMarie; Singletary, Laura Marie – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
Supporting students in making mathematical arguments is an important part of discourse practices in mathematics classrooms. Differences in teachers' support for collective argumentation have been observed and documented, and the importance of the teacher's role in supporting collective argumentation is well established. This article seeks to…

Ruef, Jennifer – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2021
What does it mean to be "good-at-math," and how is it determined? Cobb et al. (2009) defined the normative identity of mathematics classrooms as the obligations that students must meet to be considered good-at-math. Obligations are negotiated between teachers and students through series of bids. Normative identities reveal distributions…

Gomez, Carlos Nicolas; Conner, AnnaMarie – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Cooney, Shealy, and Arvold (1998) wrote a widely cited article describing the belief structures of prospective teachers and argued that the structures can aid in describing how beliefs change and the influence of authority on the individual. We investigate the impact of this manuscript on the field. To do this, we conducted a literature review (n…

Peck, Frederick A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
This article presents the results of a design-based research study related to slope that took place in a high school algebra 1 classroom. In the study, students explored situations related to making predictions. As students engaged with these situations, they reinvented and made meaningful multiple subconstructs of slope. I present the findings in…

Johnson, Estrella; Andrews-Larson, Christine; Keene, Karen; Melhuish, Kathleen; Keller, Rachel; Fortune, Nicholas – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Our field has generally reached a consensus that active-learning approaches improve student success; however, there is a need to explore the ways that particular instructional approaches affect various student groups. We examined the relationship between gender and student learning outcomes in one context: inquiry-oriented abstract algebra. Using…

Maloney, Tanya; Matthews, Jamaal Sharif – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
This multimethod study draws on theories of teacher care, dispositions, and culturally relevant pedagogy to examine how 12 urban mathematics teachers' perceptions of their own care practices align with their Black and Latinx students' (n = 321) sense of connectedness in the mathematics classroom. A qualitative analysis of in-depth interviews with…

Alcock, Lara; Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Patel, Arun Godwin; Sirl, David – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article, we argue that although mathematics educators are concerned about social issues, minimal attention has been paid to student-student interactions outside the classroom. We discuss social network analysis as a methodology for studying such interactions in the context of an undergraduate course. We present results on the questions:…

Barwell, Richard – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Research focused on learning mathematics in a 2nd language is generally located in individual 2nd-language contexts. In this ethnographic study, I investigated mathematics learning in 4 different second-language contexts: a mainstream classroom, a sheltered classroom for Indigenous students, a welcome class for new immigrants, and a…

Vazquez, Salvador R.; Ermeling, Bradley A.; Ramirez, Gerardo – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Productive struggle--expending effort to make sense of something beyond one's current level of understanding--aids in learning mathematics concepts and procedures. In this study, we surveyed 197 parents with children in the 1st to the 5th grade on their beliefs about productive struggle. Beliefs were assessed via questionnaire and rating of a…

Sonnert, Gerhard; Barnett, Melissa D.; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Students' attitudes toward mathematics and the strength of their mathematics preparation typically go hand in hand such that their specific effects are difficult to disentangle. Employing the method of propensity weighting of a continuous variable, we built hierarchical linear models in which mathematics attitudes and preparation are uncorrelated.…
