Callejo, María Luz; Zapatera, Alberto – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
The aim of this research is to characterize profiles of the teaching competence "noticing students' mathematical thinking" in the context of the pattern generalization. Prospective primary teachers were asked to describe and interpret the answers of three primary students to three linear pattern generalization problems. Five profiles for…

Simpson, Amber; Haltiwanger, Leigh – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This mixed methods study investigates the ways in which secondary mathematics prospective teachers acquire skills needed to attend to, interpret, and respond to students' mathematical thinking and the ways in which their perceived strengths and weaknesses influence their skills when this type of formalized training is not part of their program.…

Chen, Rong-Ji – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Previous research has adopted various approaches to examining teachers' and students' relationships to mathematics. The current study extended this line of research and investigated six prospective elementary school teachers' experiences in mathematics and how they saw themselves as learners of mathematics. One-on-one interviews with the…

Hjalmarson, Margret A. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This article uses a self-study research methodology to explore teaching an online course for mathematics specialists. The course included weekly videoconferencing sessions and focused on supporting their development as mathematics coaches working with K-8 teachers to enhance mathematics teaching and learning. The central question for the…

Hohensee, Charles – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Researchers have argued that integrating early algebra into elementary grades will better prepare students for algebra. However, currently little research exists to guide teacher preparation programs on how to prepare prospective elementary teachers to teach early algebra. This study examines the insights and challenges that prospective teachers…

Taylan, Rukiye Didem – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This study investigated a highly accomplished third-grade teacher's noticing of students' mathematical thinking as she taught multiplication and division. Through an innovative method, which allowed for documenting in-the-moment teacher noticing, the author was able to explore teacher noticing and reflective practices in the context of classroom…

Eckert, Andreas; Nilsson, Per – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This study examines an interactional view on teaching mathematics, whereby meaning is co-produced with the students through a process of negotiation. Further, teaching is viewed from a symbolic interactionism perspective, allowing the analysis to focus on the teacher's role in the negotiation of meaning. Using methods inspired by grounded theory,…

Cai, Jinfa; Ding, Meixia – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Researchers have long debated the meaning of mathematical understanding and ways to achieve mathematical understanding. This study investigated experienced Chinese mathematics teachers' views about mathematical understanding. It was found that these mathematics teachers embrace the view that understanding is a web of connections, which is a result…

Cayton, Charity; Hollebrands, Karen; Okumus, Samet; Boehm, Ethan – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This study investigates three teachers' uses of a dynamic geometry program (The Geometer's Sketchpad) in their high school geometry classes over a 2-year period. The researchers examine teachers' actions and questions during pivotal teaching moments to characterize mathematics instruction that utilizes technology. Findings support an association…

Felton-Koestler, Mathew D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
In this article, I introduce a framework--the What, Who, and How of mathematics--that emerged from studying my teaching of prospective teachers and their views of the social and political dimensions of mathematics teaching and learning. The What, Who, How framework asks us to consider What messages we send about mathematics and the world, Whose…

Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Mathematics education researchers have investigated mathematics anxiety in prospective elementary teachers. While many of these studies have focused on the bodily sensations and emotions of mathematics anxiety, particularly those felt in assessment situations, opportunities remain to investigate how prospective elementary teachers interpret their…

Solomon, Yvette; Eriksen, Elisabeta; Smestad, Bjørn; Rodal, Camilla; Bjerke, Annette Hessen – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
An issue of particular concern in mathematics teacher education is the relationship between theory and practice, and the nature of university-school partnerships. We report here on results from a research project answering the call for a more systematic understanding of the practice learning context. The study focuses on the new Norwegian…

Hodges, Thomas E.; Hodge, Lynn Liao – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
This article explores the personal identities of two prospective elementary teachers as they progressed from mathematics methods coursework into their capstone student teaching semester. Results indicate that both prospective teachers perceived contrasting obligations of effective mathematics teaching in the teacher education and student teaching…

González, Gloriana; Eli, Jennifer A. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Launching a problem is critical in a problem-based lesson. We investigated teachers' perspectives on the use of a problem that was analogous to the one provided during a launch. Our goal was to identify teachers' underlying assumptions regarding what should constitute a launch as elements of the "practical rationality of mathematics…

Parker, Frieda; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Novak, Jodie D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Research advances in teaching, learning, curriculum, and assessment have not changed the continued underperformance of marginalized students in mathematics education. Culturally responsive teaching is a means of addressing the needs of these students. It is sometimes challenging, however, to convince secondary mathematics teachers about the…
