Sun, Li – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Recent research on teachers' use of student mathematical thinking (SMT) and recommendations for effective mathematics instruction claim that how teachers respond to SMT has great impact on student mathematical learning in the classroom. This study examined some Chinese mathematics teachers' responses to student in-the-moment mathematical thinking…

Cervantes-Barraza, Jonathan Alberto; Hernandez Moreno, Antonia; Rumsey, Chepina – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
The purpose of this research is to promote the construction of mathematical proof from argumentation at the primary level. To show this is a viable instructional strategy at the primary level, we use a teaching experiment methodology and a task related to geometric proof in this research study. To model and analyze the collective argumentation…

Keazer, Lindsay; Jung, Hyunyi – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem solving has long been a priority in mathematics education, and the first Common Core mathematical practice (SMP1) focuses on this priority through the language of "Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them." We present findings from a survey about how prospective elementary teachers' (PTs) make sense of potential…

Navy, Shannon L.; Kaya, Fatma – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem-based learning (PBL) and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are two acronyms widely visible in education literature today. However, few studies have explored these in connection with one another, specifically with regard to teacher preparation. This study investigated how 47 prospective elementary teachers developed…

Hong, Dae S.; Runnalls, Cristina – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
The purpose of this work was to explore how elementary preservice teachers responded to area conservation tasks. We administered written pre-assessments, followed by semi-structured interviews with 23 preservice teachers, asking them to respond to and reason with area conservation tasks. Findings highlighted several interesting preservice…

Asempapa, Reuben S. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This article describes the development, initial validation, and psychometric evaluation of the mathematical modeling attitude scale (MMAS). Specifically, both qualitative and quantitative techniques were used to generate relevant items. The MMAS assesses K-12 teachers' attitude toward mathematical modeling and examines their experiences with…

Hart, Lynn C.; Auslander, Susan S.; Venuto, Nicole; Jacobs, Tiffany; Carothers, Jody; Chestnutt, Cliff – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study was to review the existing research on affect (beliefs, attitudes, and emotions) of elementary prospective teachers (EPTs) in university mathematics content courses. We use as our time period from publication in the United States of the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for Schools Mathematics through 2016. A search of…

Nesmith, Suzanne M.; Cooper, Sandi – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Young children are capable of engaging in STEM investigations when they are guided by skilled and knowledgeable teachers. However, many elementary teachers may lack sufficient STEM content knowledge and report feeling unprepared to teach STEM content. Two university faculty members in mathematics and science education, worked to cultivate and…

Kosko, Karl W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Visual representations and manipulatives are a highly advocated mathematical tool for the teaching and learning of multiplication and division. Although there is some prior research on elementary teachers' general use of manipulatives and visual representations, there is little to no specific focus on use of such representations on a specific…

Brobst, Joseph A.; Markworth, Kimberly A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
We conducted a multi-year study of specialization in elementary mathematics and/or science, using data drawn from a local sample of teachers and a nationwide sample of principals. Using the theory of planned behavior, we compare and contrast teacher and principal views and decision-making processes related to elementary content specialization…

Fisher, Molly H.; Thomas, Jonathan; Jong, Cindy; Schack, Edna O.; Dueber, David – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This paper examines the implementation of an instructional module on preservice elementary teachers' professional noticing of children's mathematical thinking. The module focuses on professional noticing skills through the content focus of early algebraic reasoning and uses complex video vignettes from whole class instruction in authentic…

Perkins Coppola, Matthew – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Research indicates there is a need for teachers to experience multiple mastery experiences with engineering teaching in order to improve teaching engineering self-efficacy. To prepare future K-5 teachers to teach the engineering design process, one science methods course integrated 2-day engineering mini-units into the class meeting and…

Hughes, Pamela; Swars Auslander, Susan; Stinson, David W.; Fortner, C. Kevin – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This quantitative study investigated the relationships among practicing elementary teachers' (N = 153) beliefs about mathematics and its teaching and learning, mathematics anxiety, and instructional practices in mathematics. When viewed singly, the findings reveal the teachers with higher levels of mathematics anxiety tend to use less…

Utley, Juliana; Ivey, Toni; Hammack, Rebekah; High, Karen – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The Next Generation Science Standards emphasizes the inclusion of engineering practices throughout the K-12 science curriculum. Therefore, elementary educators need to be knowledgeable about engineering and engineering careers so that they can expose their students to engineering. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of engineering…
