Posamentier, Alfred S. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
This article partitions leadership in mathematics education into two categories: leadership in defining and maintaining important principles in teaching mathematics, and leadership in informing the public about the importance of mathematics today and in the future. Examples of both types of leadership are given in the article. Teacher leaders in…

Kilpatrick, Jeremy – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The issue of leadership in mathematics education--always a matter of some contention--has been complicated by developments in the field over the past half century or so. When mathematics education began to emerge as an academic field at the beginning of the twentieth century, so few people were seriously concerned with either its practice or its…

D'Ambrosio, Ubiratan; D'Ambrosio, Beatriz Silva – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
In this paper we share our reflections regarding the role of ethnomathematics in providing direction for leadership in mathematics education. Our arguments are grounded in an analysis of the world today, characterized by inequities and injustices, clamoring for a new social order. We contemplate the role of mathematics and mathematics education in…

Stokes, Patricia D. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The dictionary definition of constraint is one-sided, solely restrictive. The problem-solving definition is two-sided. Constraints come in pairs. One retains its restrictive function, precluding something specific; the other directs search for its substitute. The paired constraint model is applied to both domain and classroom. I discuss the…

Albert, Lillie R.; Kim, Rina – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
This paper discusses an alternative approach for developing problem solving experiences for students. The major argument is that students can develop their creativity by engaging in collaborative problem solving activities in which they apply a variety of mathematical methods creatively to solve problems. The argument is supported by: considering…

Greenes, Carole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The implementation of "the Common Core Standards for Mathematics" and the assessments of those concepts, skills, reasoning methods, and mathematical practices that are in development necessitate the updating of teachers' knowledge of content, pedagogical techniques to enhance engagement and persistence, and strategies for responding to…

Sole, Marla – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
With the implementation of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics recommendations and the adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, modeling has moved to the forefront of K-12 education. Modeling activities not only reinforce purposeful problem-solving skills, they also connect the mathematics students learn in school…

Yow, Jan A. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The purpose of this article is to present five examples of teacher leadership from within secondary mathematics classrooms. These vignettes come from a larger study that resulted in a teacher leader continuum. This article offers classroom teacher examples that highlight each of five positions along that continuum. The argument is made that a wide…

Dickman, Benjamin – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The Evolving Systems approach to case studies due initially to Piaget-contemporary Howard Gruber, and complemented by subsequent work on sociocultural factors developed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and others, provides an inroad for examining creative achievements in a variety of domains. This paper provides a proof of concept for how one might…

Pfeil, Jessica; Hirsch, Jenna – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
Leaders in mathematics are responsible for implementing positive change within their school districts and motivating teachers of mathematics to improve their practices. One way mathematics leaders can achieve this goal is by establishing professional collaborations. We analyzed the research and summarized the common attributes found in successful…

Lee, Jae Ki; Licwinko, Susan; Taylor-Buckner, Nicole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
PEMDAS is a mnemonic device to memorize the order in which to calculate an expression that contains more than one operation. However, students frequently make calculation errors with expressions, which have either multiplication and division or addition and subtraction next to each other. This article explores the mathematical reasoning of the…

Kreith, Kurt; Mendle, Al – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
The transition from whole numbers to integers involves challenges for both students and teachers. Leadership in mathematics education calls for an ability to translate depth of understanding into effective teaching methods, and this landscape includes alternative treatments of familiar topics. Noting the multiple meanings associated with the…

Stohlmann, Micah – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
Real world mathematical modeling activities can develop needed and valuable 21st century skills. The knowledge and skills to become adept at mathematical modeling need to develop over time and students in the elementary grades should have experiences with mathematical modeling. For this to occur elementary teachers need to have positive…
