Reiser, Elana; Trusnovec, Jenna – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Peter Liljedahl describes a Building Thinking Classrooms (BTC) framework that shows teachers how to set up a classroom that promotes thinking. BTC is divided into 4 toolkits. The first toolkit consists of thinking tasks, vertical non-permanent surfaces, and visibly random groups. The second pertains to defronting the classroom, giving thinking…

An, Song A.; Tillman, Daniel A.; Smith, Karime; Hachey, Alyse C. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
This case study inspected mathematical learning opportunities that employed the results from the participating preservice teachers' (n=75) original visual arts creation process. Data obtained during this study provided empirical evidence for the educational viability of employing original Mondrian-style rectangle sets as a context for generating…

Saclarides, Evthokia Stephanie – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Although modeling instruction has been identified as a productive professional development activity that coaches can use with teachers in their classrooms, coaches are provided with little guidance regarding how to support teacher learning as they model mathematics instruction. While previous research points to the importance of providing teachers…

Wade, Carol H.; Wilkens, Christian; Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Although the secondary-tertiary transition has been investigated in mathematics education research with different focuses and theoretical approaches, it remains a major issue for students in the transition. With success in a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) major at stake, we investigated a novel approach to support the…

Darrow, Brian, Jr. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
This article examines several important moments in the history of mathematics education history to provide another lens through which to view modern mathematics education in the United States. At the turn of the twentieth century, mathematics education in the United States had been the subject of educational concern for more than a century.…

Eleni Tsami; Andreas Rokopanos; Dimitris Anastasopoulos – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Mathematical education in Greece is constantly evolving in the pursuit of optimal learning outcomes for students despite their cognitive differences. This study seeks to gain insight into the use of new technologies in teaching probability theory and the gender differences in the comprehension of probability theory. To this end, a survey was…

Brian Darrow Jr. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Arithmetic was the first mathematical subject to enter the school curriculum in the United States in a formalized manner. Until the first quarter of the nineteenth century, the prevailing pedagogy of this subject revolved around the tenets of mental discipline theory and the rules method of teaching, which valued memorization and repetitive drill…

Taajah Felder Witherspoon – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
The results of this study revealed students' solution strategies progressed from inefficient strategies e.g., counting on fingers to more efficient strategies with mathematical connections. These findings should enable educators to gain more insight to use Number Talks to help student develop computational fluency with numbers.

Christine M. Phelps-Gregory; Gabrielle Redfield; Martha Frank – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Mathematics self-efficacy (beliefs about oneself as a learner of mathematics) and mathematics teaching efficacy (beliefs about oneself as a mathematics teacher) are important constructs that influence pre-service teachers' (PTs') learning and teaching (Bandura 1986). However, less is known qualitatively about how PTs define good teaching and…

Natalie Parker-Holliman; Faith Maina – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2023
Black girls are marginalized and often experience barriers to accessing advanced mathematics, which affects their socialization and identity. Little is known about the experiences of Black girls who have gained access to advanced mathematics programs. The participants in this study were 11 middle school Black females enrolled in advanced…

Ducharme, Alden; Smith, Carmen Petrick; King, Barbara – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2022
Learning to facilitate whole-class mathematical discussions is a complex task. Teachers must become adept at using discourse moves to elicit and extend student thinking and move discussions towards a mathematical point. Practice-based mathematics methods courses give pre-service teachers opportunities to rehearse these moves in a controlled…

Mei, Baldwin; Cekin, Mine; Flint, Rochy – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2022
Chavrusa is a long-term, dyadic study partnership traditionally used in the context of Talmudic study. Chavrusa study includes pairs reading, discussing, and exploring texts together (Liebersohn, 2006). A guiding principle of chavrusa learning is that students interact with each other as both teachers and learners. While long a pedagogical model…

Mphahlele, Ramashego Shila; Manyaka, Mmapeu Margret; Moshaba, Patricia Ouma Nomsa – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2022
The South African Language in Education Policy (LiEP) advocates using African languages in the Foundation Phase (FP) which is the first phase of formal schooling in South Africa. This paper seeks to identify the challenges in implementing the language provisions prescribed in the LiEP in South Africa and within the region. Using the…

Markopoulos, Christos; Bruck, Patrick; Petta, Koralia – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2022
This paper examines Grade 6 students' thinking about geometrical solids and their properties in the context of a computer-based task. The main focus is to explore how students interact with a number of tasks based on the dynamic transformation of computer-based representations of 3D solids in a geometry classroom with the aid of a Dynamic…

Pogorelova, Lioubov – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2022
Though the curriculum reform movement that began in 1989 has had a significant impact on calculus pedagogy and content (Windham, 2008), the question remains to what extent reform-based calculus textbooks reflect these reforms. This paper explores this question by analyzing the mathematical content and pedagogical approach of the chapter on…
