Kinser-Traut, Jennifer Y.; Turner, Erin E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
A critical role of mathematics teacher education is to equip teachers with understandings and ambitious practices that support effective mathematics teaching for students from diverse backgrounds, specifically connecting to children's mathematical thinking (CMT) and children's linguistic, cultural, and family funds of knowledge (CFoK). Drawing on…

Melhuish, Kathleen; Thanheiser, Eva; Guyot, Layla – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
Justifying and generalizing are essential forms of mathematical reasoning, yet, teachers struggle both to produce and identify justifications and generalizations. In comparing elementary school teachers' self-reported levels of noticing justifying and generalizing in their own classrooms and the levels researchers observed in two consecutive…

Tallman, Michael A.; Frank, Kristin M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
This paper reports findings from a study that establishes empirical support for Harel's (Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Math 40:893-907 2008b) inclusion of "mathematical ways of thinking" as a component of teachers' professional knowledge base. Specifically, we examined the role of "quantitative reasoning" (Smith and Thompson,…

Wickstrom, Megan H.; Langrall, Cynthia W. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
Researchers have hypothesized and, in some cases, shown that hypothetical learning trajectories (LT)s can be effective tools in teaching, but implementation, across individual teachers, varies. From the literature base, we have identified six ways researchers have hypothesized teachers might be able to use LTs in their work as teachers:…

Yopp, David A.; Burroughs, Elizabeth A.; Sutton, John T.; Greenwood, Mark C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
This study investigated relationships between changes in certain types of coaching knowledge and practices among mathematics classroom coaches and how these explain changes in the attitudes, knowledge, and practice of the teachers they coach. Participants in this study were 51 school-based mathematics classroom coaches in the USA and 180 of the…

Earnest, Darrell; Amador, Julie M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Curriculum materials are integral to the mathematics classroom, yet little is known about how teachers read curriculum in order to envision enactment. Through an assignment involving an approximation of actual teaching practice, we investigated prospective teachers' documentational genesis (Pepin et al. in ZDM 45:929-943, 2013) from curriculum…

Otten, Samuel; Keazer, Lindsay M.; Karaman, Ruveyda – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The discipline of mathematics values precision and teachers are accountable for promoting and supporting their students in attending to precision (ATP), which in the USA is an explicit standard for mathematical practice included in the "Common Core State Standards for Mathematics." This study used thematic discourse analysis to examine…

Wilkie, Karina J. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Mathematics teaching at secondary levels has proven surprisingly resistant to change over the past century. This study draws on two theoretical models to investigate how the process of changing secondary teaching in algebra through school-based professional learning might occur, and its relationship to different external and internal influences on…

Tirosh, Dina; Tsamir, Pessia; Levenson, Esther S.; Barkai, Ruthi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
This paper raises the possibility of enhancing prospective and practicing teachers' awareness of example use in classrooms by using theories to analyze an authentic case. The study was carried out in the context of a university course where participants analyzed an excerpt from a tenth-grade geometry class. A qualitative analysis of participants'…

Lee, Hyung Sook; Coomes, Jacqueline; Yim, Jaehoon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
In this study, we specify teacher's knowledge and beliefs that influence their enactment of mathematics tasks. The use of tasks in lessons requires teachers to consider students' mathematical thinking and to know how to effectively implement tasks. Among the many aspects of teachers' understanding of students and ability to implement tasks for…

Felton-Koestler, Mathew D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
In this paper I present a case study of one teacher, Harriet, and how her beliefs and practices regarding "equity" and "social justice" in mathematics developed over several years. I use Valsiner's (Culture and the development of children's action: a theory of human development, 2nd edn, Wiley, New York, 1997) zone theory to…

Appova, Aina; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Enhancing teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) is essential to improving the teaching and learning of mathematics. Mathematics teacher educators (MTEs) need to help prospective teachers enhance PCK (Marks in J Teach Educ 41(3):3-11, 1990. doi:10.1177/002248719004100302; Mason 2008). However, we know very little about the practices of…

Norton, Stephen – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
In Australia, there is increasing scrutiny of teacher education processes in learning to teach primary mathematics. In this study, mixed methods, including linear regression, are used to examine the entry mathematical content knowledge of third-year Bachelor of Education Pre-service Students and to relate this to their graduating level of content…

Wallin, Abraham J.; Amador, Julie M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Professional support in the form of a year-long video club based on teacher noticing of student thinking was provided to three rural teachers who comprised the entire mathematics department of one secondary school (grades six through twelve). The focus of the study was to understand how participation in a video club structure for rural secondary…

Skott, Jeppe – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The aim of mathematics education research is to develop comprehensive understandings of the problems of mathematics teaching and learning, and the ambition is, at least in the long run, to support the development of institutionalised teaching-learning practices. Looking back at the attempts to structure syllabi and other curricular materials and…
