Gould, Heather; Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
With the adoption of the "Common Core State Standards for Mathematics" (CCSSM), the process of mathematical modeling has been given increased attention in mathematics education. This article reports on a study intended to inform the implementation of modeling in classroom contexts by examining students' interactions with the process of…

Dickman, Benjamin – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014
Mathematical problem posing is an important skill for teachers of mathematics, and relates readily to mathematical creativity. This article gives a bit of background information on mathematical problem posing, lists further references to connect problem posing and creativity, and then provides 20 problems based on the multiplication table to be…

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…

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…

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…

Ferri, Rita Borromeo – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
Teaching and learning of mathematical modelling has become a key competence within school curricula and educational standards in many countries of the world. The term mathematical modelling, its meaning, and how it can be implemented in mathematics lessons have been intensively discussed during several Conferences of the European Society for…

Jett, Christopher C. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
During the last few decades, equity concerns have become a priority for some researchers and mathematics (education) organizations. Scholars have begun to address issues of equity through a critical lens (e.g., Boaler, 2007; Darling-Hammond, 2005; Martin, 2003) in their work and scholarship. In this article, the author seeks to add to the equity…

Marushina, Albina – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
This paper aims to tell how the Russian national examination in mathematics (the Uniform State Examination or USE) has been conducted most recently. The author must say at once that the history of the system of secondary school graduation examinations or even the history of the USE will be covered only to the small degree that is necessary for…

Takker, Shikha – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
The National Curriculum Framework 2005 envisions a reformed curriculum that connects knowledge and learning to the child's context. While concerns of equity, accessibility, and social transformation have been aimed through education, the crucial link of "teacher"--instrumental in realizing these aims--seems missing. This study explores…

Weinberg, Stuart – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2010
The purpose of this article is to summarize the methodology and findings in the case studies of three student teachers in secondary school mathematics. The broad area of interest is the relationship between beliefs and practice. In the study, "beliefs" refers to expectations teachers have that students will be successful in learning with…

Murray, Diane R. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2010
In Ireland, there are areas where the Irish language is spoken exclusively, these areas are called Gaeltacht. Students living in those areas speak Irish both at home and at school. But outside those areas, schools teach in the English language. This is changing due to Gaelscoileanna. Now students who are speaking English at home and in the…
