Ahuja, Renu – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2019
This paper describes the theory of professional competence in teaching of mathematics developed through a cross-cultural examination of teaching practices of mathematics teachers recommended as competent by their principals in two selected high-achieving high schools of India and the United States. A detailed study of teacher cases from both of…

Wade, Carol H.; Cimbricz, Sandra K.; Sonnert, Gerhard; Gruver, Meagan; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018
Quantitative analysis of the Factors Influencing College Success in Mathematics (FICSMath) Survey data indicates that high school mathematics teachers' abilities to teach for conceptual understanding is a significant and positive predictor of student performance in single- variable college calculus. To explore these findings further, we gathered…

Stohlmann, Micah; Huang, Xing; DeVaul, lina – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018
rowth mindset is an important belief for students to be successful in mathematics and in their current and future lives. Solving open-ended problems also has many positive benefits for students. Little research has been conducted though on growth mindset and mathematics at the middle school level and particularly growth mindset with open-ended…

Appova, Aina K. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018
I qualitatively reviewed mathematics education literature to offer explicit classroom-based examples and recommendations on the learning opportunities that can be embedded into mathematics content courses, designed specifically for prospective elementary teachers (ePTs), to help develop their knowledge of students and their mathematical thinking,…

Barba, Kimberly – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2018
Mathematicians are often inimically portrayed in popular culture, resulting in an abundance of non-mathematical identities in the classroom. Various tropes are propagated by the media that dominate our mental schemas of what makes a mathematician: the eccentric Einstein-like old man; the young, tortured genius; and the "genetically…

McGuffey, William – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
In this article I explore some of the underlying mathematics of Poke´mon battles and describe ways that teachers at the secondary level could explore concepts of mathematical game theory in this context. I discuss various ways of representing and analyzing a Poke´mon battle using game theory and conclude with an example of applying concepts of…

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…

Johnson, Jeffrey – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
The purpose of this research was to compare two definitions and assessments of Mathematics Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK). As part of a larger study, nine current and future teachers took an online version of the Measures of Knowledge for Teaching (MKT)--Mathematics assessment and the Cognitively Activating Instruction in Mathematics…

Pratt, Sarah Smitherman; Eddy, Colleen M. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
Mathematics teachers frequently provide concrete manipulatives to students during instruction; however, the rationale for using certain manipulatives in conjunction with concepts may not be explored. This article focuses on area models that are currently used in classrooms to provide concrete examples of integer and binomial multiplication. The…

Galarza, Patrick – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
This paper explores the viability and development of the first edition of the researcher's mathematical card game, Groups, as a learning tool for elementary group theory, a topic in abstract algebra. "Groups" was play-tested by six undergraduate students in late 2016 who provided feedback on "Groups" from both utility-centric…

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…

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…

Jong, Cindy; Jackson, Christa – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
Teaching for social justice is a critical pedagogy used to empower students to be social agents in the world they live. This critical pedagogy has extended to mathematics education. Over the last decade, mathematics education researchers have conceptualized what it means to teach mathematics for social justice, but little is known about preservice…
