Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

In this Research Commentary, the author explores what is meant by "teaching for understanding" and delves into these questions: How does teaching for understanding interact with the backgrounds of the students who experience it or the attributes of the contexts in which they learn? Which empirical findings are context dependent, and…

Jamil, Faiza M.; Larsen, Ross A.; Hamre, Bridget K. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

The current study uses a large, nationally representative data set and a new method for computing teacher expectations to better understand the developmental effect of mathematics teacher expectations on future student achievement. The study utilizes autoregressive cross-lagged models with 5 time points between kindergarten and 8th grade as well…

Thanheiser, Eva – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

Elementary prospective school teachers (PSTs) often struggle to understand why they need to relearn the mathematics that they think they already know. In this set of replication studies, I address this struggle in 3 ways: First, by increasing and varying the participant pool, I replicate Thanheiser's (2009) study, which shows that PSTs do not yet…

Melhuish, Kathleen; Thanheiser, Eva – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

The authors present two sets of replication studies and aim to confirm, refute, and expand prior work.

Melhuish, Kathleen – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

Many studies in mathematics education research occur with a nonrepresentative sample and are never replicated. To challenge this paradigm, I designed a large-scale study evaluating student conceptions in group theory that surveyed a national, representative sample of students. By replicating questions previously used to build theory around student…

Star, Jon R. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

The present issue of "JRME" features three articles--Melhuish (2018; see EJ1167195); Jamil, Larsen, and Hamres (2018; see EJ1167178); and Thanheiser (2018; see EJ1167179)--that involve, at least to some degree, replication of prior published studies. In each of these articles, the authors provide a clear rationale for the importance of…

Aguirre, Julia; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Celedón-Pattichis, Sylvia; Civil, Marta; Wilkerson, Trena; Stephan, Michelle; Pape, Stephen; Clements, Douglas H. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

In this commentary, the authors explore how mathematics education research and the decisions mathematics education researchers (MERs) make to include (or not) an equity lens are not just choices; rather, they are political acts. MERs must take a hard look at themselves as human beings shaped by the political landscape of their different histories…

Jacobson, Erik D. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

This study (n = 1,044) used data from the Teacher Education and Development Study in Mathematics (TEDS-M) to examine the relationship between field experience focus (instruction- or exploration-focused), duration, and timing (early or not) and prospective elementary teachers' intertwined knowledge and beliefs about mathematics and mathematics…

Earnest, Darrell – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

This article reports on elementary students' understanding of time in the context of common classroom manipulatives and notational systems. Students in Grades 2 (n = 72) and 4 (n = 72) participated in problem-solving interviews involving different clocks. Quantitative results revealed that students' performances were significantly different as a…

Langer-Osuna, Jennifer M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

The field of mathematics education research has seen a resurgence of interest in understanding collaborative learning because students in K-12 classrooms are increasingly expected to make sense of mathematics problems together. This Research Commentary argues for the importance of understanding student authority relations in collaborative…

Williams-Pierce, Caroline; Pier, Elizabeth L.; Walkington, Candace; Boncoddo, Rebecca; Clinton, Virginia; Alibali, Martha W.; Nathan, Mitchell J. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

In this Brief Report, we share the main findings from our line of research into embodied cognition and proof activities. First, attending to students' gestures during proving activities can reveal aspects of mathematics thinking not apparent in their speech, and analyzing gestures after proof production can contribute significantly to our…

Lewis, Catherine; Perry, Rebecca – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

An understanding of fractions eludes many U.S. students, and research-based knowledge about fraction, such as the utility of linear representations, has not broadly influenced instruction. This randomized trial of lesson study supported by mathematical resources assigned 39 educator teams across the United States to locally managed lesson study…

Izsák, Andrew; Jacobson, Erik – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

Past studies have documented students' and teachers' persistent difficulties in determining whether 2 quantities covary in a direct proportion, especially when presented missing-value word problems. In the current study, we combine a mathematical analysis with a psychological perspective to offer a new explanation for such difficulties. The…

Nivens, Ryan Andrew; Otten, Samuel – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

In this Research Commentary, we describe 3 journal metrics--the Web of Science's Impact Factor, Scopus's SCImago Journal Rank, and Google Scholar Metrics' h5-index--and compile the rankings (if they exist) for 69 mathematics education journals. We then discuss 2 paths that the mathematics education community should consider with regard to these…

Leyva, Luis A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

Gender research in mathematics education has experienced methodological and theoretical shifts over the past 45 years. Although achievement studies have used assessment tools to explore and subsequently challenge the assumption of male superiority on mathematics assessments, research on participation has unpacked these studies' sex-based…
