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…

Wilkie, Karina J. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Mathematics teaching at secondary levels has proven surprisingly resistant to change over the past century. This study draws on two theoretical models to investigate how the process of changing secondary teaching in algebra through school-based professional learning might occur, and its relationship to different external and internal influences on…

Tirosh, Dina; Tsamir, Pessia; Levenson, Esther S.; Barkai, Ruthi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
This paper raises the possibility of enhancing prospective and practicing teachers' awareness of example use in classrooms by using theories to analyze an authentic case. The study was carried out in the context of a university course where participants analyzed an excerpt from a tenth-grade geometry class. A qualitative analysis of participants'…

Lee, Hyung Sook; Coomes, Jacqueline; Yim, Jaehoon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
In this study, we specify teacher's knowledge and beliefs that influence their enactment of mathematics tasks. The use of tasks in lessons requires teachers to consider students' mathematical thinking and to know how to effectively implement tasks. Among the many aspects of teachers' understanding of students and ability to implement tasks for…

Felton-Koestler, Mathew D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
In this paper I present a case study of one teacher, Harriet, and how her beliefs and practices regarding "equity" and "social justice" in mathematics developed over several years. I use Valsiner's (Culture and the development of children's action: a theory of human development, 2nd edn, Wiley, New York, 1997) zone theory to…

Appova, Aina; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Enhancing teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) is essential to improving the teaching and learning of mathematics. Mathematics teacher educators (MTEs) need to help prospective teachers enhance PCK (Marks in J Teach Educ 41(3):3-11, 1990. doi:10.1177/002248719004100302; Mason 2008). However, we know very little about the practices of…

Norton, Stephen – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
In Australia, there is increasing scrutiny of teacher education processes in learning to teach primary mathematics. In this study, mixed methods, including linear regression, are used to examine the entry mathematical content knowledge of third-year Bachelor of Education Pre-service Students and to relate this to their graduating level of content…

Wallin, Abraham J.; Amador, Julie M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Professional support in the form of a year-long video club based on teacher noticing of student thinking was provided to three rural teachers who comprised the entire mathematics department of one secondary school (grades six through twelve). The focus of the study was to understand how participation in a video club structure for rural secondary…

Diamond, Jaime Marie – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The idea that formal learning generalizes, or is transferred, beyond the conditions of initial learning serves as a basis for our educational system. That is, educators hope students will use the learning that develops in the classroom to productively reason about situations they have yet to encounter. Researchers in psychology and mathematics…

Takker, Shikha; Subramaniam, K. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Existing frameworks of teachers' knowledge required to teach mathematics do not adequately capture the dynamic aspects of knowledge manifested in teaching practice. In this paper, we examine the knowledge demands that arise in situ, in the course of a teacher listening and responding to students' thinking, while teaching the topic of decimal…

Miyakawa, Takeshi; Winsløw, Carl – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Japanese lesson study was introduced to the West in the late 1990s. Certain widely disseminated publications and classroom videos, and also reports on international surveys of students achievement, led many to consider that Japanese mathematics teaching is highly creative and effective, with lesson study as a main explanatory factor. As a result,…

Land, Tonia J.; Tyminski, Andrew M.; Drake, Corey – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
The mathematics education field recognizes the importance of noticing children's mathematical thinking as a means for supporting children in learning mathematics (Sherin et al. Mathematics teacher noticing. Routledge, New York, 2010). Using the existing literature base around teachers' knowledge of children's mathematical thinking and…

Galligan, Linda; Axelsen, Taryn; Pennicott, Toni; Addie, Ron; Galbraith, Peter; Woolcott, Geoff – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Mathematical modelling is increasingly becoming an integral component of mathematical curricular in primary and secondary schools throughout the world. However, in Australia modelling skills are currently rarely found in university teacher preparation courses. Limited experience with modelling processes, as well as a lack of confidence and…

Wasserman, Nicholas H.; Weber, Keith; Fukawa-Connelly, Timothy; McGuffey, William – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Most prospective secondary mathematics teachers complete a course in real analysis, yet view the content as unrelated to their future teaching. We leveraged a theoretically motivated instructional model to design modules for a real analysis course that could inform secondary teachers' pedagogy, focusing on how this model was implemented in a…

Wilkerson, Michelle H.; Bautista, Alfredo; Tobin, Roger G.; Brizuela, Bárbara M.; Cao, Ying – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Modeling is a major topic of interest in mathematics education. However, the field's definition of models is diverse. Less is known about what teachers identify as mathematical models, even though it is teachers who ultimately enact modeling activities in the classroom. In this study, we asked nine middle school teachers with a variety of academic…
