Rasmussen, Chris; Apkarian, Naneh; Hagman, Jessica Ellis; Johnson, Estrella; Larsen, Sean; Bressoud, David – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
The authors present findings from a recently completed census survey of all mathematics departments in the United States that offer a graduate degree in mathematics. The authors report the viewpoints of departments about characteristics shown to support students' success as well as the extent to which these characteristics are being implemented in…

Hiebert, James; Berk, Dawn; Miller, Emily; Gallivan, Heather; Meikle, Erin – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
We investigated whether the mathematics studied in 2 content courses of an elementary teacher preparation program was retained and used by graduates when completing tasks measuring knowledge for teaching mathematics. Using a longitudinal design, we followed 2 cohorts of prospective teachers for 3 to 4 years after graduation. We assessed…

Krause, Christina M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
This Brief Report addresses the fundamental role that sign language plays in the mathematics classroom of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students. Selected findings are gathered from an ongoing study of signs and gestures used by DHH students and their teachers when encountering and communicating mathematical ideas at a German special-needs school…

Clements, Douglas H.; Fuson, Karen C.; Sarama, Julie – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
We respond to a call to analyze issues of curriculum standards and to present alternative storylines by addressing criticisms of the Common Core State Standards in early childhood. We describe a storyline from multiple media and evaluate this storyline's criticisms, focusing on the criticism that the standards are developmentally inappropriate. We…

Buchbinder, Orly; Chazan, Daniel I.; Capozzoli, Michelle – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Many research studies have sought to explain why NCTM's vision for mathematics classrooms has not had greater impact on everyday instruction, with teacher beliefs often identified as an explanatory variable. Using instructional exchanges as a theoretical construct, this study explores the influence of teachers' institutional positions on the…

Lew, Kristen; Mejía-Ramos, Juan Pablo – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
This study examined the genre of undergraduate mathematical proof writing by asking mathematicians and undergraduate students to read 7 partial proofs and identify and discuss uses of mathematical language that were out of the ordinary with respect to what they considered conventional mathematical proof writing. Three main themes emerged: First,…

Izsák, Andrew; Jacobson, Erik; Bradshaw, Laine – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
We report a novel survey that narrows the gap between information about teachers' knowledge of fraction arithmetic provided, on the one hand, by measures practical to administer at scale and, on the other, by close analysis of moment-to-moment cognition. In particular, the survey measured components that would support reasoning directly with…

Norton, Anderson; Wilkins, Jesse L. M.; Xu, Cong ze – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Through their work on the Fractions Project, Steffe and Olive (2010) identified a progression of fraction schemes that describes students' development toward more and more sophisticated ways of operating with fractions. Although several quantitative studies have affirmed this progression, the question has remained open as to whether it is specific…

Reinholz, Daniel L.; Shah, Niral – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Equity in mathematics classroom discourse is a pressing concern, but analyzing issues of equity using observational tools remains a challenge. In this article, we propose equity analytics as a quantitative approach to analyzing aspects of equity and inequity in classrooms. We introduce a classroom observation tool that focuses on relatively…

Darragh, Lisa – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Images of mathematics and mathematicians are often negative and stereotyped. These portrayals may work to construct our impressions of mathematics and influence students' identity with and future participation in the subject. This study examined young adult fiction as a context in which school mathematics is portrayed and constructed. I used…

Bannister, Nicole A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Persistent disconnects within and among education research, practice, and policy are limiting the reach of professional mathematics teacher communities, one of the most promising levers for humanizing mathematics teaching and learning in schools. An overarching goal of this commentary is to convince the field of mathematics education to broaden…

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…
