Johnson, Kelly Gomez; Nebesniak, Amy L.; Rupnow, Theodore J. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019

Curriculum change is inevitable in schooling. For content areas such as mathematics that are already under the national spotlight, transitioning to new curriculum materials while concurrently enacting instructional reform creates both a challenge and an opportunity. This paper discusses how partnerships between two state universities and…

Slayton, Brittany; Velez, Susana Salazar; Jong, Cindy; Perry, Kristen – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018

This paper describes an after-school club aimed to engage elementary students in project-based learning by integrating mathematics and literacy connections within a community-based topic. Building on students' backgrounds and interests, researchers created the Community Super Investigators (CSI) Club as part of an after-school program to explore…

Reys, Robert – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018

Over several hundred different institutions in the USA have graduated people identifying a doctorate in mathematics education. Some institutions graduate people every year, other institutions graduate one person every 3-5 years. Some institutions have one faculty member, others have more than ten. There is no agreed upon common core of knowledge…

Wade, Carol; Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip M.; Hazari, Zahra; Watson, Charity – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016

This article compares the views of teachers and professors about the transition from secondary mathematics to tertiary calculus. Quantitative analysis revealed five categories where teachers and professors differed significantly in the relative frequency of addressing them. Using the rite of passage theory, the separation and incorporation phases…

Howson, Geoffrey – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016

For the past three years, the Program in Mathematics and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, has, in coordination with its colloquium series, held a Columbus Day Symposium. Each year, the all day event has been focused on a particular theme in mathematics education, and has brought in various speakers and leaders in the field to…

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…

Fitz, Margaret – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016

This article focuses on the mathematical value of teaching angles through the use of sundials in the classroom. The history of sundials and the mathematics embedded within them is discussed in detail. In addition, practical applications of angles are included, along with interactive practice telling time with the angles created on sundials. Time…

Reys, Robert – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016

Arguments for significantly improving doctoral programs have long been made, both nationally and internationally. The nature and variety of doctoral programs makes it difficult to single out specific changes that would be equally applicable to every discipline-specific doctoral program. Therefore, this commentary will focus on doctoral programs…

Cho, Hoyun; Osborne, Carolyn; Sanders, Tobie – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015

Elementary Education pre-service teachers are noted for disliking and even fearing mathematics, so a teaching strategy that increases their enjoyment of mathematics learning must be a powerful one, indeed. When the same strategy can also support problem posing and assess mathematical knowledge and reasoning, providing an occasional alternative to…

Baker, Katherine; Harter, Meghan Evelynne – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015

This meta-ethnography explores qualitative studies around the Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) framework of mathematics and illustrates how CGI epitomizes differentiation. The meta-ethnographic process is used to synthesize CGI as differentiation, specifically within the elementary mathematics classroom. Thomas P. Carpenter is credited as one…

McGuffey, William – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015

This article describes an activity that incorporates measurement in order to lead students to discover and explore fundamental concepts of calculus. Students are provided with an experientially real starting point involving measurement and are encouraged to engage in mathematical discussions in a low-stakes environment. I describe the activity as…

An, Song A.; Tillman, Daniel A.; Paez, Carlos R. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015

This study investigated the effects upon elementary preservice teachers' mathematics teaching self-efficacy and interdisciplinary lesson design strategies, which resulted from an educational intervention that emphasized integrated music-mathematics instruction. The participating elementary preservice teachers (n = 152) were recruited for this…

Satake, Eike – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015

This cross-cultural study investigated the relationship between attitudes toward statistics (ATS) and course achievement (CA) among Japanese college students. The sample consisted of 135 male and 134 female students from the first two-year liberal arts program of a four-year college in Tokyo, Japan. Attitudes about statistics were measured using…

Eisenhut, Lindsay A.; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2015

This paper provides empirical findings from a study that examined how three grade 7-12 flipped mathematics educators utilized class time when implementing a flipped learning model. Additionally, the researchers investigated the educators' purposes for various in-class tasks as well as their general use of class time. The data revealed flipped…

Kreith, Kurt – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014

At grade 7, Common Core's content standards call for the use of long division to find the decimal representation of a rational number. With an eye to reconciling this requirement with Common Core's call for "a balanced combination of procedure and understanding," a more transparent form of long division is developed. This leads to the…
