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…

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,…

Garcia-Olp, Michelle; Van Ooyik, Jacklyn; Kitchen, Richard – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2017
In this paper we examine deficit perspectives that prospective elementary school teachers (PTs) noticed their mentor teachers held with regards to classifying students by their achievement or behavior. Using a sociopolitical framework, we explored the following research question: What labels and forms of labeling of students have elementary school…

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…

Munroe, Kayan Lloyd – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
This paper analyzes how a teacher of mathematics used problem posing in the assessment of the cognitive development of 26 students at the grade-four level. The students, ages 8 to 10 years, were from a rural elementary school in western Jamaica. Using a picture as a prompt, students were asked to generate three arithmetic problems and to offer…

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…

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…

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…

Wu, Hung-Hsi – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
This article makes two simple observations about high-stakes assessments. The first is that, because mathematics is a very technical subject, an assessment item can be mathematically flawed regardless of how elementary it is. For this reason, every assessment project needs the active participation of high level mathematicians. A second point is…

Kepner, Henry S.; Huinker, DeAnn – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2012
The "Common Core State Standards for Mathematics" presents challenges and opportunities to contribute to a common understanding of the mathematical proficiencies expected of our students. This paper discusses the movement to establish multi-state assessment consortia in the United States based in the standards movement set in motion by…

Offenholley, Kathleen – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
Video games have tremendous potential in mathematics education, yet there is a push to simply add mathematics to a video game without regard to whether the game structure suits the mathematics, and without regard to the level of mathematical thought being learned in the game. Are students practicing facts, or are they problem-solving? This paper…

Cunningham, Alice W.; Dias, Olen; Angulo, Nieves – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2011
This article analyzes the findings from an 18-section experiment studying the effect of homework-completion tutoring on community college students' remedial mathematics performance. The experiment involved 529 students registered for two remedial math courses: math skills and algebra. For each course, the experiment studied nine sections: three…
