DeBay, Dennis J. – Journal of Education, 2017
The introduction of real-world, meaningful tasks in mathematics classrooms promises to create opportunities for enhancing students' learning through active engagement with mathematical ideas; however, researchers have given little consideration to the contexts in which urban high-school students live. The case study of three students reported in…

Brakoniecki, Aaron; Shah, Fahmil – Journal of Education, 2017
The research reported in this article explored the methods by which concept maps served as formative assessment by capturing changes in the ways preservice mathematics teachers represented their understanding of algebra. The participants were enrolled in a course on high school algebra for teachers and created the maps on the first and last day of…

Larnell, Gregory V.; Bullock, Erika C.; Jett, Christopher C. – Journal of Education, 2016
What is teaching and learning mathematics for social justice (TLMSJ)? How has TLMSJ been taken up in mathematics education--both historically and contemporarily? Along with unpacking these two central questions, this article assesses the current capacity and stance of TLMSJ toward addressing issues of racial injustice. The authors begin with an…

Dietiker, Leslie – Journal of Education, 2015
Elliot Eisner proposed that educational challenges can be met by applying an artful lens. This article draws from Eisner's proposal to consider the assumptions, values, and vision of mathematics education by theorizing mathematics curriculum as an art form. By conceptualizing mathematics curriculum (both in written and enacted forms) as stories…

Matthews, Mary Elizabeth – Journal of Education, 2013
This literature review examines the models, theories, and research in mathematics education that are informed by Lee S. Shulman's construct, Pedagogical Content Knowledge. The application of the concept differs in nature and volume across levels of schooling. The research includes substantial work at the elementary level, fewer studies at the…

Goldenberg, E. Paul – Journal of Education, 1996
Presents one approach to teaching that involves taking particular ways of thinking seriously and giving them top priority among various principles one needs for organizing mathematics (or other) curricula, allowing teachers to directly help students acquire selected thinking skills and aid acquisition of concepts, skills, and facts in content…

Fitzgerald, J. Franklin – Journal of Education, 1996
Argues that the development of reasoning ability--a major goal of education--should start in the intermediate grades with curriculum materials that include simple proofs. How the proofs concept for developing reasoning skills works in mathematics instruction is explored. (GR)

Spungin, Rika – Journal of Education, 1996
Explores the working group model for mathematics teacher education and presents group investigations from the areas of number theory, probability, and geometry. Argues that by working in groups, sharing ideas, and making and testing conjectures, prospective teachers gain confidence in their own ability to do mathematics and develop a variety of…

Chapin, Suzanne H. – Journal of Education, 1996
Argues that to affect lasting change in terms of what mathematics is taught and how it is taught requires programs that recognize the different intersecting needs and perspectives of a school's administrators, teacher-leaders, teachers, students, and parents. It discusses how these types of professional development programs can extend the impact…

Thornton, Carol A.; Jones, Graham A. – Journal of Education, 1996
Discusses the teaching of "big ideas" in mathematics in an environment that accommodates special learning differences. With multiple approaches that capitalize on the learning differences of students, those with special needs can respond within their specific limitations and succeed at levels previously considered beyond their reach.

Greenes, Carole – Journal of Education, 1995
Introduces the constructivist theory of mathematical learning, and illustrates its application in a curriculum focusing on fundamental concepts. How knowledge is constructed, how concepts mature, and what it means to learn and to know mathematics are presented. Pedagogical implications of adopting a constructivist perspective on knowledge and…

Damarin, Suzanne K. – Journal of Education, 1991
The computer has a role in the feminist reform of curriculum and instruction in science and mathematics instruction if technology is used to move away from didactic linear presentations of mere facts. Computers have the potential to open science and mathematics to more women and to more ideas. (SLD)

Schulman, Linda – Journal of Education, 1996
Argues that assessment practices need to change in mathematics classrooms and describes an assessment system that focuses on broad learning outcomes, uses tasks that are aligned with instructional practices, actively involves students, and informs teachers' instructional and curricular decisions. The standards for assessment practices adopted by…

Findell, Carol – Journal of Education, 1996
Reviews the past 50 years of mathematics education in the United States and examines past and present reforms. The mathematics education community is trying to develop a vision of mathematics that will serve in the next century. Current curriculum materials based on these reforms present students with relevant problems to solve and require…

Cuoco, Albert A.; Goldenberg, E. Paul – Journal of Education, 1996
Explores the uses of technology, computers in particular, to teach mathematics. Examples are given of the ways technology can help students gather data and test, modify, and reject or accept conjectures as they think about mathematical concepts. Article asserts a restructuring of the mathematics curriculum is necessary to bring this about. (SLD)
