Mintos, Alexia; Hoffman, Andrew J.; Kersey, Elizabeth; Newton, Jill; Smith, Dana – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Understanding how mathematics preservice teachers (M-PSTs) learn about issues of equity is essential to addressing the inequities that persist in mathematics education. In this article, we use (Gutiérrez, in: Herbel-Eisenmann, Choppin, Wagner, Pimm (eds) Equity in discourse for mathematics education: theories, practices, and policies, Springer,…

Leikin, Roza; Zazkis, Rina; Meller, Michal – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
We believe that professional mathematicians who teach undergraduate mathematics courses to prospective teachers play an important role in the education of secondary school mathematics teachers. Thus, we explored the views of research mathematicians on the mathematics that should be taught to prospective mathematics teachers, on how the courses…

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…

Copur-Gencturk, Yasemin; Papakonstantinou, Anne – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
This study examines the effects of professional development on various aspects of teachers' mathematics instruction. Using data collected between 2005 and 2009, we examined the extent to which the instructional practices of 49 US high school teachers who participated in content-based, sustained professional development changed over time. We found…

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…

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…

Vale, Colleen; McAndrew, Alasdair; Krishnan, Siva – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2011
A professional learning program for teachers of junior secondary mathematics regarding the content and pedagogy of senior secondary mathematics is the context for this study of teachers' mathematical and pedagogical knowledge. The analysis of teachers' reflections on their learning explored teachers' understanding of mathematical connections and…
