Yopp, David A.; Burroughs, Elizabeth A.; Sutton, John T.; Greenwood, Mark C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
This study investigated relationships between changes in certain types of coaching knowledge and practices among mathematics classroom coaches and how these explain changes in the attitudes, knowledge, and practice of the teachers they coach. Participants in this study were 51 school-based mathematics classroom coaches in the USA and 180 of the…

Otten, Samuel; Keazer, Lindsay M.; Karaman, Ruveyda – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The discipline of mathematics values precision and teachers are accountable for promoting and supporting their students in attending to precision (ATP), which in the USA is an explicit standard for mathematical practice included in the "Common Core State Standards for Mathematics." This study used thematic discourse analysis to examine…

Roth McDuffie, Amy; Choppin, Jeffrey; Drake, Corey; Davis, Jon D.; Brown, Jennifer – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Eight middle school mathematics teachers' perceptions and uses of curriculum materials and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) were investigated. Adapting a noticing framework and models of dialogic instruction and direct instruction, teachers' noticing practices with curriculum materials and the CCSSM when planning, enacting,…

Suh, Jennifer; Seshaiyer, Padmanabhan – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study examines elementary- and middle-grade teachers' understanding of the mathematical learning progression as they participated in a 6-month professional learning project. Teachers participated in a professional development project that consisted of a 1-week summer content-focused institute with school-based follow-up Lesson Study cycles in…

Jacobson, Erik; Izsák, Andrew – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Past studies have suggested that in light of recent curriculum standards, many US teachers make limited use of drawn models in their mathematics instruction. To gain insight into this phenomenon, we investigated relationships between US teachers' opportunities to learn about, knowledge of, motivation for, and instructional use of drawn models for…

Warshauer, Hiroko Kawaguchi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Prior studies suggest that struggling to make sense of mathematics is a necessary component of learning mathematics with understanding. Little research exists, however, on what the struggles look like for middle school students and how they can be productive. This exploratory case study, which used episodes as units of analysis, examined 186…

van den Kieboom, Leigh A.; Magiera, Marta T.; Moyer, John C. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
In this study, we explored the relationship between prospective teachers' algebraic thinking and the questions they posed during one-on-one diagnostic interviews that focused on investigating the algebraic thinking of middle school students. To do so, we evaluated prospective teachers' algebraic thinking proficiency across 125…

Peterson, Blake E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2005
The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) reports that the mathematics teaching in Japan is distinctly different from that found in the United States. They attribute part of that difference to the professional development practice of Lesson Study. However, is the pre-service preparation of Japanese mathematics teachers also…
