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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Ahuja, Renu – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019

This paper describes the theory of professional competence in teaching of mathematics developed through a cross-cultural examination of teaching practices of mathematics teachers recommended as competent by their principals in two selected high-achieving high schools of India and the United States. A detailed study of teacher cases from both of…

Wade, Carol H.; Cimbricz, Sandra K.; Sonnert, Gerhard; Gruver, Meagan; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018

Quantitative analysis of the Factors Influencing College Success in Mathematics (FICSMath) Survey data indicates that high school mathematics teachers' abilities to teach for conceptual understanding is a significant and positive predictor of student performance in single- variable college calculus. To explore these findings further, we gathered…

Stohlmann, Micah; Huang, Xing; DeVaul, lina – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018

rowth mindset is an important belief for students to be successful in mathematics and in their current and future lives. Solving open-ended problems also has many positive benefits for students. Little research has been conducted though on growth mindset and mathematics at the middle school level and particularly growth mindset with open-ended…

Appova, Aina K. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018

I qualitatively reviewed mathematics education literature to offer explicit classroom-based examples and recommendations on the learning opportunities that can be embedded into mathematics content courses, designed specifically for prospective elementary teachers (ePTs), to help develop their knowledge of students and their mathematical thinking,…

Barba, Kimberly – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018

Mathematicians are often inimically portrayed in popular culture, resulting in an abundance of non-mathematical identities in the classroom. Various tropes are propagated by the media that dominate our mental schemas of what makes a mathematician: the eccentric Einstein-like old man; the young, tortured genius; and the "genetically…

McGuffey, William – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017

In this article I explore some of the underlying mathematics of Poke´mon battles and describe ways that teachers at the secondary level could explore concepts of mathematical game theory in this context. I discuss various ways of representing and analyzing a Poke´mon battle using game theory and conclude with an example of applying concepts of…
