Amador, Julie M.; Carter, Ingrid S. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Lesson Study, which assumes multiple variations, is a collaborative method that provides an opportunity for teachers to notice professionally. We analyzed how audible conversational components afforded and constrained the verbalization of professional noticing of a lesson study team. The team, comprised of six prospective teachers, a classroom…

Wilkerson, Michelle H.; Bautista, Alfredo; Tobin, Roger G.; Brizuela, Bárbara M.; Cao, Ying – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Modeling is a major topic of interest in mathematics education. However, the field's definition of models is diverse. Less is known about what teachers identify as mathematical models, even though it is teachers who ultimately enact modeling activities in the classroom. In this study, we asked nine middle school teachers with a variety of academic…

Boote, Stacy K.; Boote, David N. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Mathematical habits of prospective teachers affect problem comprehension and success and expose their beliefs about mathematics. Prospective elementary teachers (PSTs) (n = 121) engaged in a problem solving activity each week in class. Data were collected from PSTs enrolled in an undergraduate elementary mathematics methods course at a…

Swars, Susan L.; Smith, Stephanie Z.; Smith, Marvin E.; Carothers, Jody; Myers, Kayla – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Many in the field of mathematics education call for elementary schools to have elementary mathematics specialists (EMSs) who provide needed mathematical expertise and support for children and teachers. EMSs serve as a reasonable, immediate alternative to the challenges generated by elementary teachers needing improved mathematical knowledge for…

Kutaka, T. S.; Ren, L.; Smith, W. M.; Beattie, H. L.; Edwards, C. P.; Green, J. L.; Chernyavskiy, P.; Stroup, W.; Heaton, R. M.; Lewis, W. J. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
This study examines the impact of the Primarily Math Elementary Mathematics Specialist program on K-3 teachers' mathematical content knowledge for teaching, attitudes toward learning mathematics, and beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning. Three cohorts of teachers participating in the program were compared to a similar group of…

Li, Wenjuan; Castro Superfine, Alison – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
This descriptive case study examines six mathematics teacher educators' (MTEs) perspectives on their design of content courses for elementary preservice teachers. By focusing on MTE's design goals and considerations for their mathematics content courses, the means by which they achieved these course design goals, and the challenges they…

Lovin, LouAnn H.; Stevens, Alexis L.; Siegfried, John; Wilkins, Jesse L. M.; Norton, Anderson – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
In an effort to expand our knowledge base pertaining to pre-K-8 prospective teachers' understanding of fractions, the present study was designed to extend the work on fractions schemes and operations to this population. One purpose of our study was to validate the fractions schemes and operations hierarchy with the pre-K-8 prospective teacher…

Cooper, Jason; Karsenty, Ronnie – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Is it possible that a meeting of mathematicians and primary school teachers will be productive? This question became intriguing when one professor of mathematics initiated a professional development course for practicing primary school teachers, which he taught alongside a group of mathematics Ph.D. students. This report scrutinizes the uncommon…

Norton, Stephen; Zhang, Qinqiong – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
The preparation of teachers to teach mathematics to primary school children differs across nations and cultures. This study used mixed methods to examine the basic content knowledge of trainee teachers in Australia and China. A simple test (30 questions) of content based on an international comparative study in mathematics teacher training found…

Losano, Leticia; Fiorentini, Dario; Villarreal, Mónica – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
This study is focused on a period that poses several challenges for the development of mathematics teachers' professional identities and agency: their first year of teaching in schools. During this period, beginning mathematics teachers confront tensions and contradictions among the principles, ideals, and experiences encountered during…

Callejo, María Luz; Zapatera, Alberto – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
The aim of this research is to characterize profiles of the teaching competence "noticing students' mathematical thinking" in the context of the pattern generalization. Prospective primary teachers were asked to describe and interpret the answers of three primary students to three linear pattern generalization problems. Five profiles for…

Simpson, Amber; Haltiwanger, Leigh – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This mixed methods study investigates the ways in which secondary mathematics prospective teachers acquire skills needed to attend to, interpret, and respond to students' mathematical thinking and the ways in which their perceived strengths and weaknesses influence their skills when this type of formalized training is not part of their program.…

Chen, Rong-Ji – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Previous research has adopted various approaches to examining teachers' and students' relationships to mathematics. The current study extended this line of research and investigated six prospective elementary school teachers' experiences in mathematics and how they saw themselves as learners of mathematics. One-on-one interviews with the…
