Monson, Debra; Krupa, Erin; Lesseig, Kristin; Casey, Stephanie – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
This paper highlights the second phase of a multi-university research project focusing on improving secondary prospective mathematics teachers' abilities to respond to student thinking. This work is based on an Interview Module, created by the authors, which showed gains in prospective teachers' (PSTs) abilities to attend to and interpret student…

Kastberg, Signe E.; Lischka, Alyson E.; Hillman, Susan L. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
Mathematics teacher educators' (MTEs') written feedback is an instantiation of teaching practice and provides information to support the developing understanding of prospective teachers (PTs), yet no research has been undertaken to characterize such feedback. Research on feedback forms, including written feedback, has focused on information…

Stevens, Alexis L.; Wilkins, Jesse L. M.; Lovin, LouAnn H.; Siegfried, John; Norton, Anderson; Busi, Richard – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
In a previous study, we validated the fractions schemes and operations trajectory (Norton and Wilkins 2012; Steffe in J Math Behav 20(3): 267-307, 2002; Steffe and Olive Children's fractional knowledge. Springer, New York, 2010; Wilkins and Norton 2011) with PreK-8 prospective teachers and explored PreK-8 prospective teachers' understanding of…

Leavy, Aisling; Hourigan, Mairéad – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
Problem solving is a key priority in school mathematics. Central to the valuable role played by problem solving is the quality of the problems posed. While we recognize the features of good problems and how to support learners in solving problems, less is known about the ways in which prospective teachers' (PTs) conceptions of what constitutes a…

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…

Galligan, Linda; Axelsen, Taryn; Pennicott, Toni; Addie, Ron; Galbraith, Peter; Woolcott, Geoff – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Mathematical modelling is increasingly becoming an integral component of mathematical curricular in primary and secondary schools throughout the world. However, in Australia modelling skills are currently rarely found in university teacher preparation courses. Limited experience with modelling processes, as well as a lack of confidence and…

Wasserman, Nicholas H.; Weber, Keith; Fukawa-Connelly, Timothy; McGuffey, William – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Most prospective secondary mathematics teachers complete a course in real analysis, yet view the content as unrelated to their future teaching. We leveraged a theoretically motivated instructional model to design modules for a real analysis course that could inform secondary teachers' pedagogy, focusing on how this model was implemented in a…

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'…

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…

Mintos, Alexia; Hoffman, Andrew J.; Kersey, Elizabeth; Newton, Jill; Smith, Dana – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Understanding how mathematics preservice teachers (M-PSTs) learn about issues of equity is essential to addressing the inequities that persist in mathematics education. In this article, we use (Gutiérrez, in: Herbel-Eisenmann, Choppin, Wagner, Pimm (eds) Equity in discourse for mathematics education: theories, practices, and policies, Springer,…

Shaughnessy, Meghan; Boerst, Timothy A.; Farmer, Susanna Owens – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
As teacher education shifts to focus on teaching beginners to do the work of teaching, assessments need to shift to focus on assessing practice. We focus on one teaching practice, eliciting student thinking, in the context of elementary mathematics. We describe assessments in two contexts (field and simulation). For each assessment, we describe…

de Vetten, Arjen; Schoonenboom, Judith; Keijzer, Ronald; van Oers, Bert – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The ability to reason inferentially is increasingly important in today's society. It is hypothesized here that engaging primary school students in informal statistical reasoning (ISI), defined as making generalizations without the use of formal statistical tests, will help them acquire the foundations for inferential and statistical thinking.…

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…

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…

Estapa, Anne T.; Amador, Julie; Kosko, Karl W.; Weston, Tracy; de Araujo, Zandra; Aming-Attai, Rachael – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Elementary preservice teachers at six universities engaged in a task that provided them opportunities to articulate their professional noticing within video representations, written decompositions, and animated approximations of practice. The preservice teachers' written accounts indicated that a majority attended to students or student thinking;…
