Ross, Karen E. L. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This article examines the effects of changing teacher self-efficacy on student achievement. Results from a quantitative study of mathematics teachers in a USA mid-Atlantic state showed that teachers experienced reduced self-efficacy when working with English language learner students (ELLs) relative to non-ELLs. Further, the article explores…

Adler, Jill; Hossain, Sarmin; Stevenson, Mary; Clarke, John; Archer, Rosa; Grantham, Barry – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This article reports an investigation into how students of a mathematics course for prospective secondary mathematics teachers in England talk about the notion of "understanding mathematics in depth", which was an explicit goal of the course. We interviewed eighteen students of the course. Through our social practice frame and in the…

Bahr, Damon L.; Monroe, Eula Ewing; Eggett, Dennis – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This paper describes a study of observed relationships between the design of a preservice elementary mathematics methods course with accompanying field practicum and changes in the extent to which participating prospective teachers identified themselves with the mathematics reform movement after becoming practicing teachers. The curriculum of the…

Afamasaga-Fuata'i, Karoline; Sooaemalelagi, Lumaava – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Based on findings from a semester-long study, this article examines the development of Samoan prospective teachers' mathematical understandings and mathematics attitudes when investigating authentic contexts and applying working mathematically processes, mental computations and problem-solving strategies to find solutions of problems. The…

Weldeana, Hailu Nigus; Abraham, Solomon Tewolde – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
Many learners hold traditional beliefs about mathematics that can hamper their learning in the discipline. To address this issue, a "history-based" intervention program entailing problem-solving and writing activities that instigate cognitive conflict was implemented. Data sources were pretest and posttest scores of a 12-theme…

Copur-Gencturk, Yasemin; Lubienski, Sarah T. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This longitudinal study examines growth in teacher knowledge as measured by two popular assessments--Learning Mathematics for Teaching (LMT) and Diagnostic Teacher Assessments in Mathematics and Science (DTAMS). Using data collected from 24 teachers, we compare the extent to which each assessment captured teacher learning during a K-8 mathematics…

Coles, Alf – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
Past research into the use of video for professional development has failed to problematise or theorise sufficiently the role of the discussion facilitator. It has been reported consistently that it can be hard or take time to establish norms for discussion of video but little has been said about reasons why, or the role of the discussion…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This paper explores how four good teachers, who do not have a special interest in technology, meet the challenge of introducing the rapidly developing mathematics analysis software (e.g. spreadsheets, function graphers, symbolic algebra manipulation and dynamic geometry) into their classrooms. These teachers' practice is viewed through the…

Caglayan, Günhan – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This study is about prospective secondary mathematics teachers' understanding and sense making of representational quantities generated by algebra tiles, the quantitative units (linear vs. areal) inherent in the nature of these quantities, and the quantitative addition and multiplication operations--referent preserving versus referent…

Hannigan, Ailish; Gill, Olivia; Leavy, Aisling M. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
The development of statistical literacy is fast becoming the focus of a large part of mathematics instruction at primary, secondary and tertiary levels. This broadening of the mathematics curriculum to encompass a focus on statistics makes considerable demands on teachers. Most mathematics teachers acknowledge the practical importance of…

Lannin, John K.; Webb, Matthew; Chval, Kathryn; Arbaugh, Fran; Hicks, Sarah; Taylor, Cynthia; Bruton, Rebecca – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
Recent research efforts (Schmidt et al. in "The preparation gap: teacher education for middle school mathematics in six countries," MSU Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education, 2007) demonstrate that teacher development programs in high-performing countries offer experiences that are designed to develop both mathematical…

Steele, Michael D.; Hillen, Amy F.; Smith, Margaret S. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This study describes teacher learning in a teaching experiment consisting of a content-focused methods course involving the mathematical knowledge for teaching function. Prospective and practicing teachers in the course showed growth in their ability to define function, to provide examples of functions and link them to the definition, in the…

Levenson, Esther – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
Promoting mathematical creativity is one of the aims of mathematics education. This study investigates the tasks teachers chose when their aim was to occasion mathematical creativity in the classroom. Five cases are described in depth, and general trends found among these cases as well as in additional data are discussed. Findings indicated that…

Steele, Michael D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
While recent national and international assessments have shown mathematical progress being made by US students, little to no gains are evident in the areas of geometry and measurement. These reports also suggest that practicing teachers have traditionally had few opportunities to engage in content learning around topics in geometry and…
