Aaron, Wendy Rose; Herbst, Patricio G. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Inside the discipline, mathematical work consists of the interplay between stating and refining conjectures and attempting to prove those conjectures. However, the mathematical practices of conjecturing and proving are traditionally separated in high school geometry classrooms, despite some research showing that students can successfully navigate…

Gueudet, Ghislaine; Pepin, Birgit; Sabra, Hussein; Trouche, Luc – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
In this study, we investigated design processes in teacher collectives, which have been made possible by new "digital" opportunities: platforms, discussion lists, etc. The object of our study is the French Sésamath teacher association and its design of a grade 10 e-textbook, more precisely the design of the "functions" chapter.…

Karakok, Gulden; Soto-Johnson, Hortensia; Dyben, Stephenie Anderson – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study explores in-service high school mathematics teachers' conception of various forms of complex numbers and ways in which they transition between different representations of these forms. One 90-min interview was conducted with three high school mathematics teachers after they completed three professional development sessions, each 4 h, on…

Herbst, Patricio; Kosko, Karl W. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This study compared conversations among groups of teachers of high school geometry that had been elicited by a representation of instruction (either a video or an animation) and facilitated with an open-ended agenda. All artifacts used represented instruction scenarios that departed from what, according to prior work, had been hypothesized as…

Bleiler, Sarah K.; Thompson, Denisse R.; Krajcevski, Milé – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Mathematics teachers play a unique role as experts who provide opportunities for students to engage in the practices of the mathematics community. Proof is a tool essential to the practice of mathematics, and therefore, if teachers are to provide adequate opportunities for students to engage with this tool, they must be able to validate student…

Rubel, Laurie H.; Chu, Haiwen – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2012
This article reports findings from a research and professional development project at two high schools located in low-income, urban communities of color. The project collaborates with teachers on improving their instructional practices, using a framework of culturally relevant mathematics pedagogy, which is described in detail here. We present…

Francisco, John M.; Maher, Carolyn A. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2011
There is a documented need for more opportunities for teachers to learn about students' mathematical reasoning. This article reports on the experiences of a group of elementary and middle school mathematics teachers who participated as interns in an after-school, classroom-based research project on the development of mathematical ideas involving…

Chapman, Olive; Heater, Brenda – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2010
This article focuses on an experienced high school mathematics teacher who changed her practice without participating in planned interventions aimed at producing this change. It reports on the nature of the teacher's change from her perspective and an interpretation and understanding of the change from the researcher's perspective. It illustrates…

Slavit, David; Nelson, Tamara Holmlund – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2010
This article describes the collaborative inquiry activity of a group of high school mathematics teachers interested in increasing student engagement and problem solving in the classroom. Specific findings related to the nature of the teacher interactions and subsequent impacts on practice are discussed. The findings focus on (a) the nature of the…

Alsawaie, Othman N.; Alghazo, Iman M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2010
This is an intervention study that explored the effect of using video lesson analysis methodology (VLAM) on the ability of prospective middle/high school mathematics teachers to analyze mathematics teaching. The sample of the study consisted of 26 female prospective mathematics teachers enrolled in a methods course at the United Arab Emirates…

Cross, Dionne I. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
This collective case study reports on an investigation into the relationship between mathematics teachers' beliefs and their classroom practices, namely, how they organized their classroom activities, interacted with their students, and assessed their students' learning. Additionally, the study examined the pervasiveness of their beliefs in the…

Planas, Nuria; Civil, Marta – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
This article centers on a professional development project with a group of high school mathematics teachers in Barcelona. The eight participating teachers taught in low-income schools with a high percentage of immigrant students. Our model of professional development is based on the involvement of the teachers as co-researchers of their local…

Stanley, Dick; Sundstrom, Manya – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2007
This paper describes an approach for pre-service or in-service mathematics education that teaches sophisticated mathematics using only the tools of high school mathematics. The idea is to start with a standard problem from high school mathematics and let the solution to this problem serve as a platform for asking good mathematical questions and…

Bloom, Irene – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2007
This paper describes the implementation of extended analysis tasks (EATs) in a required mathematics course for prospective high school mathematics teachers, and investigates the mathematical discovery promoted through engagement with these tasks. Extended analysis tasks are designed to move students beyond the problem context to the underlying…

Wilson, Patricia S.; Cooney, Thomas J.; Stinson, David W. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2005
Scholars of decades past, current researchers, and various reform documents all deal, directly or indirectly, with the question of what constitutes good mathematics teaching. Often good teaching is situated in the context of broader educational goals, such as preparing literate citizenry. Researchers generally define good teaching implicitly with…
