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,…

Tirosh, Dina; Tsamir, Pessia; Levenson, Esther S.; Barkai, Ruthi; Tabach, Michal – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
This study investigates 27 preschool teachers' verbalization of various aspects of pattern structure as well as their knowledge of pattern structure while solving patterning activities. Aspects of structure that are investigated include the unit of repeat, its length and the amount of times it is repeated, and whether or not the pattern ends in a…

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…

Prediger, Susanne; Roesken-Winter, Bettina; Leuders, Timo – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2019
Given the challenges of scaling up content-related professional development (PD), the PD facilitators have gained increasing attention in PD research. In this mainly programmatic and structural article, we try to systematize existing research strategies which take into account the multifaceted and multi-level structure of PD research. We discuss…

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…

Amador, Julie M.; Carter, Ingrid S. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Lesson Study, which assumes multiple variations, is a collaborative method that provides an opportunity for teachers to notice professionally. We analyzed how audible conversational components afforded and constrained the verbalization of professional noticing of a lesson study team. The team, comprised of six prospective teachers, a classroom…

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…

Pino-Fan, Luis R.; Godino, Juan D.; Font, Vicenç – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in studying the knowledge that mathematics teachers require in order for their teaching to be effective. However, only a few studies have focused on the design and application of instruments that are capable of exploring different aspects of teachers' didactic-mathematical knowledge about specific…

Lovin, LouAnn H.; Stevens, Alexis L.; Siegfried, John; Wilkins, Jesse L. M.; Norton, Anderson – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
In an effort to expand our knowledge base pertaining to pre-K-8 prospective teachers' understanding of fractions, the present study was designed to extend the work on fractions schemes and operations to this population. One purpose of our study was to validate the fractions schemes and operations hierarchy with the pre-K-8 prospective teacher…

Cooper, Jason; Karsenty, Ronnie – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
Is it possible that a meeting of mathematicians and primary school teachers will be productive? This question became intriguing when one professor of mathematics initiated a professional development course for practicing primary school teachers, which he taught alongside a group of mathematics Ph.D. students. This report scrutinizes the uncommon…

Norton, Stephen; Zhang, Qinqiong – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
The preparation of teachers to teach mathematics to primary school children differs across nations and cultures. This study used mixed methods to examine the basic content knowledge of trainee teachers in Australia and China. A simple test (30 questions) of content based on an international comparative study in mathematics teacher training found…

Losano, Leticia; Fiorentini, Dario; Villarreal, Mónica – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018
This study is focused on a period that poses several challenges for the development of mathematics teachers' professional identities and agency: their first year of teaching in schools. During this period, beginning mathematics teachers confront tensions and contradictions among the principles, ideals, and experiences encountered during…

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;…
