Garrett, Lauretta; Huang, Li; Charleton, Maria Calhoun – Mathematics Educator, 2016

Authenticity is a term commonly used in reference to pedagogical and curricular qualities of mathematics teaching and learning, but its use lacks a coherent framework. The work of researchers in engineering education provides such a framework. Authentic qualities of mathematics teaching and learning are fit within a model described by Strobel,…

Haghverdi, Majid; Wiest, Lynda R. – Mathematics Educator, 2016

This study shows how separate and combined contextual and conceptual problem rewording can positively influence student performance in solving mathematical word problems. Participants included 80 seventh-grade Iranian students randomly assigned in groups of 20 to three experimental groups involving three types of rewording and a control group. All…

Martinez, Mara V.; Bragelman, John; Stoelinga, Timothy – Mathematics Educator, 2016

The primary goal of the Intensified Algebra I (IA) program is to enable mathematically underprepared students to successfully complete Algebra I in 9th grade and stay on track to meet increasingly rigorous high school mathematics graduation requirements. The program was designed to bring a range of both cognitive and non-cognitive supports to bear…

Jung, Hyunyi; Mintos, Alexia; Newton, Jill – Mathematics Educator, 2015

This study addressed the opportunities to learn (OTL) modeling in algebra provided to secondary mathematics pre-service teachers (PSTs). To investigate these OTL, we interviewed five instructors of required mathematics and mathematics education courses that had the potential to include opportunities for PSTs to learn algebra at three universities.…

Norton, Anderson – Mathematics Educator, 2015

This theoretical analysis addresses "the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences" (Wigner, 1960). For example, how is it that ellipses--constructed by Greek geometers nearly two millennia before Kepler used them--provide such precise models for describing planetary motion? Historical models of gravity and…

Teuscher, Dawn; Kulinna, Pamala Hodges; Crooker, Carol – Mathematics Educator, 2015

This study investigated 309 secondary mathematics teachers', from 50 school districts, perceptions of Writing to Learn Mathematics (WTLM) strategies. A modified version of a previously validated instrument was used for an online survey (Silver, 1999). Only 45% of teachers who participated in the survey were familiar with WTLM. The majority of…

Miller, David; Schraeder, Matthew – Mathematics Educator, 2015

At a research University near the east coast, researchers restructured a College Algebra course by formatting the course into two large lectures a week, an active recitation size laboratory class once a week, and an extra day devoted to active group work called Supplemental Practice (SP). SP was added as an extra day of class where the SP leader…

Martin, Christie; Polly, Drew; McGee, Jen; Wang, Chuang; Lambert, Richard; Pugalee, David – Mathematics Educator, 2015

This study examined the mathematical discourse of elementary school teachers and their students while participating in a year-long professional development project focused on implementing reform-based mathematics curriculum. The teacher participants included 12 teachers, two from each grade level from Kindergarten through Grade 5. Field notes were…

Stohlmann, Micah; Maiorca, Cathrine; Olson, Travis A. – Mathematics Educator, 2015

Mathematical modeling is an essential integrated piece of the Common Core State Standards. However, researchers have shown that mathematical modeling activities can be difficult for teachers to implement. Teachers are more likely to implement mathematical modeling activities if they have their own successful experiences with such activities. This…

Rickard, Anthony – Mathematics Educator, 2014

Although decades of mathematics education reform supports using effective classroom discourse to increase students' learning of mathematics, research about what mathematics students learn in such classrooms is less developed. Moreover, how teachers actually facilitate classroom discourse and navigate through unpredictable terrain to develop…

Nagle, Courtney; Moore-Russo, Deborah – Mathematics Educator, 2014

This article provides an initial comparison of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics by examining the fundamental notion of slope. Each set of standards is analyzed using eleven previously identified conceptualizations of slope. Both sets of standards emphasize Functional Property,…

Busi, Rich; Jacobbe, Tim – Mathematics Educator, 2014

This study investigated preservice teachers' perceptions of their knowledge and development resulting from analyzing student work in an undergraduate mathematics education course. Participants were given opportunities to view and analyze student work examples that portrayed errors in thinking as well as alternative solution methods. Thirty-eight…

Meister, Tara – The Mathematics Educator, 2017

Propelled by Maxine Greene's (1988) continuum of freedom from normative structures to critical consciousness and action, I illuminate the institutional and individual influences on teacher development and action in mathematics teaching. I focus on the question: What barriers and openings, both individually and institutionally, spur teachers to…

Huang, Rongjin; Prince, Kyle M.; Barlow, Angela T. – The Mathematics Educator, 2017

This study examined how a ninth grade teacher improved an Algebra I lesson through a lesson study approach. We used multiple data sources to investigate the improvement of the lesson towards student-centered mathematics instruction, perceived benefits of the teacher, and factors associated with the improvement of teaching. The lesson group…

Herges, Rebecca M.; Duffield, Stacy; Martin, William; Wageman, Justin – The Mathematics Educator, 2017

Mathematics achievement among K-12 students has been a long-standing concern in schools across the United States. A possible solution to this mathematics achievement problem is student motivation. A survey was administered to 65 mathematics students at a Midwestern middle school to determine their beliefs and attitudes related to motivation and…
