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:…

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…

Davis, Brent; Towers, Jo; Chapman, Olive; Drefs, Michelle; Friesen, Sharon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
We examine the relationship between how teachers talk about teaching and their actual teaching practices. Analyses of their talk were based on extensive transcripts and writings and focused on metaphors and images invoked when discussing knowledge, learning, and teaching. Three distinct and coherent webs of association were identified, which we…

Stockero, Shari L.; Leatham, Keith R.; Ochieng, Mary A.; Van Zoest, Laura R.; Peterson, Blake E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
Using student mathematical thinking during instruction is valued by the mathematics education community, yet practices surrounding such use remain difficult for teachers to enact well, particularly in the moment during whole-class instruction. Teachers' orientations--their beliefs, values, and preferences--influence their actions, so one important…

Swars Auslander, Susan; Smith, Stephanie Z.; Smith, Marvin E.; Myers, Kayla – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2020
Increased accountability demands are being placed on teacher preparation programs across the USA to demonstrate competencies of their teacher candidates. As a means of evaluating teacher candidates' instructional effectiveness and readiness for their own classrooms, some programs are using standardized teacher performance assessments, with faculty…

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…

Land, Tonia J.; Tyminski, Andrew M.; Drake, Corey – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The mathematics education field recognizes the importance of noticing children's mathematical thinking as a means for supporting children in learning mathematics (Sherin et al. Mathematics teacher noticing. Routledge, New York, 2010). Using the existing literature base around teachers' knowledge of children's mathematical thinking and…

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…

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…
