Swars, Susan L.; Smith, Stephanie Z.; Smith, Marvin E.; Carothers, Jody; Myers, Kayla – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Many in the field of mathematics education call for elementary schools to have elementary mathematics specialists (EMSs) who provide needed mathematical expertise and support for children and teachers. EMSs serve as a reasonable, immediate alternative to the challenges generated by elementary teachers needing improved mathematical knowledge for…

Chen, Rong-Ji – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Previous research has adopted various approaches to examining teachers' and students' relationships to mathematics. The current study extended this line of research and investigated six prospective elementary school teachers' experiences in mathematics and how they saw themselves as learners of mathematics. One-on-one interviews with the…

Widjaja, Wanty; Vale, Colleen; Groves, Susie; Doig, Brian – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Lesson study is highly regarded as a model for professional learning, yet remains under-theorised. This article examines the professional learning experiences of teachers and numeracy coaches from three schools in a local network of schools, participating in a lesson study project over two research cycles in 2012. It maps the interconnections…

Whitacre, Ian; Nickerson, Susan D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
We report on interview results from a classroom teaching experiment in a Number and Operations course for prospective elementary teachers. Improving the number sense of this population is an important goal for mathematics teacher education, and researchers have found this goal to be difficult to accomplish. In earlier work, we devised a local…

Bobis, Janette; Way, Jennifer; Anderson, Judy; Martin, Andrew J. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
This study explored the beliefs about student engagement in mathematics of three Year 5 and 6 teachers, focusing on the shifts that occurred during a 10-week intervention. Data obtained from teacher surveys, interviews, video-recorded workshop observations and artefacts from teachers' classrooms reveal variations in their reactions to the…

Jung, Hyunyi; Brady, Corey – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
Partnership with teachers for professional development has been considered beneficial because of the potential of collaborative work in the teacher's own classroom to be relevant to practice. From this perspective, both teachers and researchers can draw on their own expertise and work as authentic partners. In this study, we address the need for…

Johnson, Raymond; Severance, Samuel; Penuel, William R.; Leary, Heather – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
How teachers make sense of new academic standards significantly shapes the implementation of those standards. Professional development organized around the analysis of mathematical tasks has potential to prepare teachers for standards implementation by helping them develop common understandings of standards and how to help students meet ambitious…

Hansen, Alice; Mavrikis, Manolis; Geraniou, Eirini – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
This study explores the impact that co-designing a virtual manipulative, Fractions Lab, had on teachers' professional development. Tapping into an existing community of practice of mathematics specialist teachers, the study identifies how a cooperative enquiry approach utilising workshops and school-based visits challenged 23 competent primary…

Jansen, Amanda; Hohensee, Charles – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
The purpose of this study was to examine and elaborate upon elementary prospective teachers' (PSTs) conceptions of partitive division with fractions. We examined the degree to which PSTs' conceptions were connected (i.e., capable of translating between representations correctly; aware that partitive division generates a unit rate for its quotient)…

Wood, Marcy B.; Turner, Erin E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Studies of mathematics teacher preparation frequently lament the divide between the more theoretically based university methods course and the practically grounded classroom field experience. In many instances, attempts to mediate this gap involve creating hybrid or third spaces, which seek to dissipate the differences in knowledge status as…

Whitacre, Ian – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study investigated the sets of mental computation strategies used by prospective elementary teachers to compute sums and differences of whole numbers. In the context of an intervention designed to improve the number sense of prospective elementary teachers, participants were interviewed pre/post, and their mental computation strategies were…

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…

Bleiler, Sarah K. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Collaborations between mathematicians and mathematics teacher educators are increasingly being expected, and realized, within the context of mathematics teacher education. Most research related to collaborative efforts between members of the mathematics and mathematics education communities has focused on the products, rather than the process of…

Cross Francis, Dionne I. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Researchers in the field of mathematics education have focused on beliefs as a significant area of study because of the influence of beliefs on what is taught and learned. Much of the research in this area speaks about inconsistency between teachers' beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning and their classroom practices. In this case study,…

Owens, Kay – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Transforming teachers and their approach to teaching Indigenous students requires partnerships with the Indigenous community, planning, small steps, and funds. This article illustrates how teachers can change when funds are available to assist schools and communities to implement appropriate and effective professional development, to establish…
