Karakok, Gulden; Soto-Johnson, Hortensia; Dyben, Stephenie Anderson – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study explores in-service high school mathematics teachers' conception of various forms of complex numbers and ways in which they transition between different representations of these forms. One 90-min interview was conducted with three high school mathematics teachers after they completed three professional development sessions, each 4┬áh, on…

Herbst, Patricio; Kosko, Karl W. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This study compared conversations among groups of teachers of high school geometry that had been elicited by a representation of instruction (either a video or an animation) and facilitated with an open-ended agenda. All artifacts used represented instruction scenarios that departed from what, according to prior work, had been hypothesized as…

Rubel, Laurie H.; Chu, Haiwen – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2012
This article reports findings from a research and professional development project at two high schools located in low-income, urban communities of color. The project collaborates with teachers on improving their instructional practices, using a framework of culturally relevant mathematics pedagogy, which is described in detail here. We present…

Stanley, Dick; Sundstrom, Manya – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2007
This paper describes an approach for pre-service or in-service mathematics education that teaches sophisticated mathematics using only the tools of high school mathematics. The idea is to start with a standard problem from high school mathematics and let the solution to this problem serve as a platform for asking good mathematical questions and…
