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…

George, Michael; Milman, Yevgeniy – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
Low passing rates in developmental mathematics have been a serious concern for community colleges for many years. A course in Quantitative Literacy (QL) offers non-STEM students an alternative option to introductory algebra as a path to a degree. This paper describes the implementation and evolution of QL at the Borough of Manhattan Community…

Deihl, Steve; Markinson, Mara P. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
High school students often ask questions about the nature of infinity. When contemplating what the "largest number" is, or discussing the speed of light, students bring their own ideas about infinity and asymptotes into the conversation. These are popular ideas, but formal ideas about the nature of mathematical sets, or "set…

Gil, Indira; Zamudio-Orozco, Laura; King, Barbara – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
When teaching through problem solving, effective mathematics teachers need to lead discussions that assist students in making connections between different solution strategies. However, while teaching a methods course for preservice teachers (PSTs), we noticed that after solving a problem and presenting various solution strategies, many PSTs…

Reys, Robert; Reys, Barbara; Shih, Jeffrey C. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
Doctoral programs in mathematics education were established more than a century ago in the United States. From 2010-2014 over 120 different institutions graduated at least one doctorate in mathematics education. There has been limited research reported on the nature of doctoral programs in mathematics education and/or their doctoral graduates.…

Hodge, Angie; Rech, Janice; Matthews, Michael; Johnson, Kelly Gomez; Jakopovic, Paula – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
Mentoring is an important aspect of mathematics teacher education, and in particular, pre-service teacher education. Faculty at a large Midwestern university developed and refined a mentoring program designed to help pre-service secondary mathematics teachers, called Scholars, become future leaders in mathematics education. This paper describes…

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…

Gibbons, Alanna – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
Maryam Mirzakhani is the first and the only female winner of the Fields Medal since its establishment in 1936. She is arguably one of the greatest mathematicians of our generation. This biographical paper outlines her life and work. Her mathematical theorems and noteworthy accomplishments are just as impressive as her determination, imagination,…
