Osborne, Michael C.; Ma, Xin – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
Using the nationally representative sample from the United States in the 2012 Programme for International Student Assessment (N = 7,429 students from 240 schools), the present study examined the effects of student help-seeking behaviors on eight measures of student mathematics achievement. To account for the multilevel structure of the data with…

Sole, Marla A. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
Developmental mathematics, which is designed to prepare students for college-level mathematics courses, can be a barrier to students' success. In the United States, the majority of students placed into developmental mathematics courses fail to complete the developmental sequence. Alternative mathematics pathways offer some benefits when integrated…

Khan, Bibi Rabia – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
Improving students' performance in Calculus is a challenge for many colleges and universities. One way of improving students' performance as well as their metacognition and study skills is to provide opportunities for them to receive support outside of the lecture. A modified version of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ)…

Meagher, Michael S.; Özgün-Koca, S. Asli; Edwards, M. Todd – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
Generating mathematical conjectures is an important mathematical habit of mind for preservice teachers to develop so that they can, in turn, help their students to develop this skill. In this paper we present a classroom episode in which preservice mathematics teachers experience conjecturing in the context of a rich, open-ended task. They also…

Thomas, Jonathan; Marzilli, Taylor; Sawyer, Brittney; Jong, Cindy; Schack, Edna O.; Fisher, Molly H. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
This study examines potential bias with respect to perceived gender and ethnicity in preservice teachers' professional noticing of children's mathematical thinking. The goal of the study was to explore how, and to what extent bias emerges within pre-service teachers' professional noticing of children of differing perceived races and genders. Our…

Dickman, Benjamin – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
We present in this paper a pair of approaches to support mathematics educators and learners in formulating original tasks. In particular, we facilitate the posing of rich mathematical problems by using two novel methods that were created by a mathematics department at a K-12 school in the United States, and further developed alongside our students…

Campbell, Tye G.; Yeo, Sheunghyun – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
While a growing body of research examines teachers' facilitation of discourse-rich classrooms, surprisingly little research is devoted to learners' responsibilities in such classrooms. In this paper, we share a theoretical model for explaining students' responsibilities in yielding mathematical learning in discourse-rich classrooms. These…

Simon, Leah M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
This classroom study immersed high school geometry students in the creative and intellectually challenging design task of developing unique logos using mathematics and technology. The students applied and deepened their knowledge of transformations while using dynamic geometry software. One of the main aims of the task was to elevate student…

MacMahon, Alyssa L.; Mongroo, Chandra N. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
Postsecondary mathematics classrooms continue to become more diverse, which implores educators to continue to incorporate more diverse modes of assessment to support all learners. However, researchers have found that mathematics assessment at the postsecondary level has remained mostly stagnant, with traditional, closed-book exams dominating the…

Wu, Hung-Hsi – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
The non-learning of school mathematics is now almost universally taken for granted, but this does not have to happen. This article takes a critical look at the root of this non-learning by pointing to the flagrant defects in the kind of mathematics--to be called TSM--that is predominant in almost all the school textbooks. By analyzing how the long…

Barba, Kimberly – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
Mathematics problems are shared rapidly across all social media platforms, and the relative anonymity granted to users can lead to unfiltered discourse. This study examined 1,046 comments from a mathematics problem posted twice to YouTube in February 2016 to determine the underlying narratives that indicate the commenters' mathematical mindsets…

Wheeler, Ann; Smith, Shawnda; Gardner, David – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2020
In this paper, we discuss the utilization of an innovative learning tool, the Sphero BOLT robot, in a 10-day algebra-based mathematics education course for graduate students. Students created routes for their BOLTs to travel and determined ways to measure the distance, rate, and time of their robots' movements. The student prompt, sample student…

Gujarati, Joan – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
This article examines how the Child Mathematics Inquiry Portfolio (CMIP), a semester-long field experience project attached to an elementary mathematics methods course, can impact preservice teachers' understanding about teaching and learning mathematics and set them on more positive mathematics teaching journeys as they prepare to enter the…

Johnson, Kelly Gomez; Nebesniak, Amy L.; Rupnow, Theodore J. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
Curriculum change is inevitable in schooling. For content areas such as mathematics that are already under the national spotlight, transitioning to new curriculum materials while concurrently enacting instructional reform creates both a challenge and an opportunity. This paper discusses how partnerships between two state universities and…

Thomas, Casedy A.; Berry, Robert Q., III – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
This article uses Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP) and Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) as the theoretical frameworks and qualitative metasynthesis as the methodological framework to synthesize qualitative research published between 1994 and February of 2016. Initial searches produced 1,224 articles, but through a process of appraisals, 12…
