Walkowiak, Temple A.; Pinter, Holly H.; Berry, Robert Q. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
We present a reconceptualized framework for opportunity to learn (OTL) in school mathematics that builds on previous conceptualizations of OTL and includes features related to both quantity (i.e., time) and quality. Our framework draws on existing literature and on our own observational research of mathematics teaching practices. Through the…

Zosh, Jennifer Mary; Hassinger-Das, Brenna; Toub, Tamara Spiewak; Hirsh-Pasek, Kathy; Golinkof, Roberta – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
International rankings show children in the United States perform well below average in mathematics. There are also large mathematics achievement gaps between children of lower- and higher-socioeconomic status. As today's teachers face these challenges, they are also faced with the pressures of sweeping educational reforms that arrived with the…

Stokes, Patricia D. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
Experts think in patterns and structures using the specific "language" of their domains. For mathematicians, these patterns and structures are represented by numbers, symbols and their relationships (Stokes, 2014a). To determine whether elementary students in the United States could learn to think in mathematical patterns to solve…

Larson, Matthew R.; Smith, Wendy M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The purpose of this article is to present the findings of a quantitative study focused on primary mathematics teachers who participated in an intensive professional development program and then had leadership responsibility for the implementation of a new primary mathematics curriculum in their district. The study examines the effect of the…

Sossi, Dino; Jamalian, Azadeh; Richardson, Shenetta – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
This exploratory study compared a computer-based mathematics education intervention with two more traditional approaches with the purpose of improving instruction in perimeter and area. Kidspiration software, tile/stick manipulatives and pencil/paper-based copying/drawing of shapes were implemented in a 3rd Grade New York City public school…
