Rasmussen, Chris; Apkarian, Naneh; Hagman, Jessica Ellis; Johnson, Estrella; Larsen, Sean; Bressoud, David – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

The authors present findings from a recently completed census survey of all mathematics departments in the United States that offer a graduate degree in mathematics. The authors report the viewpoints of departments about characteristics shown to support students' success as well as the extent to which these characteristics are being implemented in…

Hiebert, James; Berk, Dawn; Miller, Emily; Gallivan, Heather; Meikle, Erin – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

We investigated whether the mathematics studied in 2 content courses of an elementary teacher preparation program was retained and used by graduates when completing tasks measuring knowledge for teaching mathematics. Using a longitudinal design, we followed 2 cohorts of prospective teachers for 3 to 4 years after graduation. We assessed…

Krause, Christina M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

This Brief Report addresses the fundamental role that sign language plays in the mathematics classroom of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students. Selected findings are gathered from an ongoing study of signs and gestures used by DHH students and their teachers when encountering and communicating mathematical ideas at a German special-needs school…

Clements, Douglas H.; Fuson, Karen C.; Sarama, Julie – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

We respond to a call to analyze issues of curriculum standards and to present alternative storylines by addressing criticisms of the Common Core State Standards in early childhood. We describe a storyline from multiple media and evaluate this storyline's criticisms, focusing on the criticism that the standards are developmentally inappropriate. We…

Buchbinder, Orly; Chazan, Daniel I.; Capozzoli, Michelle – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

Many research studies have sought to explain why NCTM's vision for mathematics classrooms has not had greater impact on everyday instruction, with teacher beliefs often identified as an explanatory variable. Using instructional exchanges as a theoretical construct, this study explores the influence of teachers' institutional positions on the…

Jett, Christopher C. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

The stories of high-achieving African American mathematics students are gaining prominence in the research literature. In this multiple case study, I use a critical race theoretical frame to document and analyze the experiences of 4 mathematically persistent African American male students who earned undergraduate degrees in mathematics and…

Lockwood, Elise; Purdy, Branwen – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

The multiplication principle (MP) is a fundamental aspect of combinatorial enumeration, serving as an effective tool for solving counting problems and underlying many key combinatorial formulas. In this study, we used guided reinvention to investigate 2 undergraduate students' reasoning about the MP, and we sought to answer the following research…

Harper, Frances K. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

Mathematics classrooms are increasingly becoming sites for investigating social (in)justice, but research on teaching mathematics for social justice remains limited to individual case studies. This article reports on a metasynthesis of 35 qualitative reports of social justice mathematics enactments in diverse classroom contexts. Critical race…

Lew, Kristen; Mejía-Ramos, Juan Pablo – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

This study examined the genre of undergraduate mathematical proof writing by asking mathematicians and undergraduate students to read 7 partial proofs and identify and discuss uses of mathematical language that were out of the ordinary with respect to what they considered conventional mathematical proof writing. Three main themes emerged: First,…

Izsák, Andrew; Jacobson, Erik; Bradshaw, Laine – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

We report a novel survey that narrows the gap between information about teachers' knowledge of fraction arithmetic provided, on the one hand, by measures practical to administer at scale and, on the other, by close analysis of moment-to-moment cognition. In particular, the survey measured components that would support reasoning directly with…

Adiredja, Aditya P. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

This article identifies a self-sustaining system of deficit narratives about students of color as an entry point for studies of cognition to engage with the sociopolitical context of mathematical learning. Principles from sociopolitical perspectives and Critical Race Theory, and historical analyses of deficit thinking in education research,…

Wilson, Jonee; Nazemi, Mahtab; Jackson, Kara; Wilhelm, Anne Garrison – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

This article outlines several forms of instructional practice that distinguished middle-grades mathematics classrooms that were organized around conceptually oriented activity and marked by African American students' success on state assessments. We identified these forms of practice based on a comparative analysis of teaching in (a) classrooms in…

Barajas-López, Filiberto; Larnell, Gregory V. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

In their commentary, "Toward a Framework for Research Linking Equitable Teaching with the Standards for Mathematical Practice," Bartell et al. (2017) provide a stepping-stone into the challenge of clarifying the interface between equity and standards setting in mathematics education by devising a framework that relates the "Common…

Valentine, Keri D.; Bolyard, Johnna – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

Past experiences as mathematics learners play a critical role in the way mathematics teachers consider what it means to know, do, and teach mathematics. Thus, under-standing past experiences and ways to work with them in teacher education is a critical concern. Using phenomenological inquiry, we investigated moments of shift that occur along one's…

Norton, Anderson; Wilkins, Jesse L. M.; Xu, Cong ze – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

Through their work on the Fractions Project, Steffe and Olive (2010) identified a progression of fraction schemes that describes students' development toward more and more sophisticated ways of operating with fractions. Although several quantitative studies have affirmed this progression, the question has remained open as to whether it is specific…
