Seneres, Alice W.; Kerrigan, John A. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
There are specific topics in college calculus that can be major stumbling blocks for students. Having taught college calculus for four years to over a thousand students, we observed that even the students who have already taken pre-calculus or calculus during their high school careers had common misunderstandings. Students may remember a technique…

Jett, Christopher C. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Literature in mathematics has been found to foster positive improvements in mathematics learning. This manuscript reports on a mathematics teacher educator's use of literature via literature circles with 11 prospective secondary mathematics teachers in a mathematics content course. Using survey and reflection data, the author found that…

Buchheister, Kelley; Jackson, Christa; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Traditionally, teacher education programs have placed little emphasis on preparing mathematics teachers to work with students who struggle in mathematics. Therefore, it is crucial that mathematics teacher educators explicitly prepare prospective teachers to instruct students who struggle with mathematics by providing strategies and practices that…

Sole, Marla A. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
With rising personal and public debt, public and private employers increasingly shifting financial responsibility to individuals, and an increase in both the number of financial investment options and predatory lending practices, today's students need to be financially literate. This paper defines financial literacy and justifies its place in the…

Webb, David C.; Stade, Eric; Grover, Ryan – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
This article presents several of the challenges facing postsecondary mathematics education and describes how the undergraduate Learning Assistant (LA) program has been used as a catalyst to engage faculty and students in redesigning opportunities to learn mathematics. Characteristics of the LA program that have been used to transform introductory…

Greenes, Carole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Tasks to Advance the Learning of Mathematics (TALMs) were developed to stimulate grades 5-8 students' curiosity about complex mathematical relationships, inspire them to reason abstractly and quantitatively, encourage them to consider and create alternative solution approaches, develop their skills to persuade others about the viability of one…

Fuentes, Sarah Quebec; Bloom, Mark; Peace, Heather – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Preservice teachers often enter teacher education programs with naïve views about mathematics and science as well as the various domains of knowledge needed for effective teaching. A significant body of research has demonstrated that teacher knowledge is multifaceted and consists of both subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge.…

Stephens, Max; Keqiang, Richard Xu – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
In the Western developed world, the language of 21st century competencies, also referred to as 21st century skills or competences, is a powerful means of drawing attention to links between the secondary school curriculum, post-secondary education, and the social and economic imperatives of the developed economies. This paper will analyze different…

Contreras, José – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
This paper describes how the author's students (in-service and pre-service secondary mathematics teachers) enrolled in college geometry courses use the Geometers' Sketchpad (GSP) to gain insight to formulate, confirm, test, and refine conjectures to solve the classical airport problem for triangles. The students are then provided with strategic…

Kilpatrick, Jeremy – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
This paper addresses the contested way that ethnomathematics has sometimes been received by mathematicians and others and what that disagreement might suggest about issues in mathematics education; namely, (a) the relation of ethnomathematics to academic mathematics; (b) recent efforts to reform secondary school mathematics so that it prepares…

Contreras, José N. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
This paper discusses a classroom experience in which a group of prospective secondary mathematics teachers were asked to create, cooperatively (in class) and individually, problems related to Viviani's problem using a problem-posing framework. When appropriate, students used Sketchpad to explore the problem to better understand its attributes…

Posamentier, Alfred S. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
This article partitions leadership in mathematics education into two categories: leadership in defining and maintaining important principles in teaching mathematics, and leadership in informing the public about the importance of mathematics today and in the future. Examples of both types of leadership are given in the article. Teacher leaders in…

Kilpatrick, Jeremy – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The issue of leadership in mathematics education--always a matter of some contention--has been complicated by developments in the field over the past half century or so. When mathematics education began to emerge as an academic field at the beginning of the twentieth century, so few people were seriously concerned with either its practice or its…

D'Ambrosio, Ubiratan; D'Ambrosio, Beatriz Silva – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
In this paper we share our reflections regarding the role of ethnomathematics in providing direction for leadership in mathematics education. Our arguments are grounded in an analysis of the world today, characterized by inequities and injustices, clamoring for a new social order. We contemplate the role of mathematics and mathematics education in…
