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…

Earnest, Darrell; Amador, Julie M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Curriculum materials are integral to the mathematics classroom, yet little is known about how teachers read curriculum in order to envision enactment. Through an assignment involving an approximation of actual teaching practice, we investigated prospective teachers' documentational genesis (Pepin et al. in ZDM 45:929-943, 2013) from curriculum…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Estapa, Anne T.; Amador, Julie; Kosko, Karl W.; Weston, Tracy; de Araujo, Zandra; Aming-Attai, Rachael – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Elementary preservice teachers at six universities engaged in a task that provided them opportunities to articulate their professional noticing within video representations, written decompositions, and animated approximations of practice. The preservice teachers' written accounts indicated that a majority attended to students or student thinking;…

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…

Li, Wenjuan; Castro Superfine, Alison – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
This descriptive case study examines six mathematics teacher educators' (MTEs) perspectives on their design of content courses for elementary preservice teachers. By focusing on MTE's design goals and considerations for their mathematics content courses, the means by which they achieved these course design goals, and the challenges they…

Chen, Jian-Cheng; Lin, Fou-Lai; Yang, Kai-Lin – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
This study documented the process of evolution of the continuous design and revision of the tools of a novice mathematics teacher educator--researcher (MTE-R) as he planned and implemented design-based professional development workshops for in-service mathematics teachers in Taiwan. In order to effectively facilitate teachers designing and…
