Gueudet, Ghislaine; Pepin, Birgit; Sabra, Hussein; Trouche, Luc – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
In this study, we investigated design processes in teacher collectives, which have been made possible by new "digital" opportunities: platforms, discussion lists, etc. The object of our study is the French Sésamath teacher association and its design of a grade 10 e-textbook, more precisely the design of the "functions" chapter.…

Heyd-Metzuyanim, Einat; Tabach, Michal; Nachlieli, Talli – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
The mathematics education field, including prospective teacher education program, has seen a continuous effort to change teaching practices to be more cognitively demanding, conceptually oriented and student centred. Our goal in this study was to examine how certain underlying assumptions about mathematical learning, as reflected in a skilled…

Jansen, Amanda; Hohensee, Charles – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
The purpose of this study was to examine and elaborate upon elementary prospective teachers' (PSTs) conceptions of partitive division with fractions. We examined the degree to which PSTs' conceptions were connected (i.e., capable of translating between representations correctly; aware that partitive division generates a unit rate for its quotient)…

Anhalt, Cynthia Oropesa; Cortez, Ricardo – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2016
This study examines the evolution of 11 prospective teachers' understanding of mathematical modeling through the implementation of a modeling module within a curriculum course in a secondary teacher preparation program. While the prospective teachers had not previously taken a course on mathematical modeling, they will be expected to include…

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…

Walkoe, Janet – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Learning algebra is critical for students in the USA today, yet many students in the USA struggle in algebra classes. Researchers claim that one reason for these difficulties is that algebra classes often focus on symbol manipulation and procedures above, and many times at the expense of, a more conceptual understanding of the content. Teaching…

Dotger, Benjamin; Masingila, Joanna; Bearkland, Mary; Dotger, Sharon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Field placements serve as the traditional "clinical" experience for prospective mathematics teachers to immerse themselves in the mathematical challenges of students. This article reports data from a different type of learning experience, that of a clinical simulation with a standardized individual. We begin with a brief background on…

Mitchell, Rebecca N.; Marin, Katherine Ariemma – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
The ability to notice important events in a teaching situation and make decisions about these events is a key component of teaching well. Prospective teachers tend to notice more superficial aspects of classroom practice, such as class management. This article examines a video club in which four student teachers utilized the Mathematical Quality…

Levenson, Esther – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study explores the relationship between participating in a graduate course aimed at enhancing teachers' theoretical and practical knowledge of mathematical creativity and one teacher's changing perspectives regarding mathematical creativity and tasks that may occasion mathematical creativity. Results indicated that perceptions of…

Wood, Marcy B.; Turner, Erin E. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Studies of mathematics teacher preparation frequently lament the divide between the more theoretically based university methods course and the practically grounded classroom field experience. In many instances, attempts to mediate this gap involve creating hybrid or third spaces, which seek to dissipate the differences in knowledge status as…

Purdum-Cassidy, Barbara; Nesmith, Suzanne; Meyer, Rachelle D.; Cooper, Sandi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Questioning is considered a powerful tool in mediating students' knowledge construction and conceptual understanding. In this qualitative study, the mathematics-focused lesson plans of elementary education prospective teachers provided data to determine the ways that the approach of literature integration in mathematics influenced prospective…

Whitacre, Ian – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study investigated the sets of mental computation strategies used by prospective elementary teachers to compute sums and differences of whole numbers. In the context of an intervention designed to improve the number sense of prospective elementary teachers, participants were interviewed pre/post, and their mental computation strategies were…

Karakok, Gulden; Soto-Johnson, Hortensia; Dyben, Stephenie Anderson – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
This study explores in-service high school mathematics teachers' conception of various forms of complex numbers and ways in which they transition between different representations of these forms. One 90-min interview was conducted with three high school mathematics teachers after they completed three professional development sessions, each 4 h, on…

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…

Drageset, Ove Gunnar – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Mathematical discourse in the classroom has been conceptualised in several ways, from relatively general patterns such as initiation-response-evaluation (Cazden in "Classroom discourse: the language of teaching and learning," Heinemann, London, 1988; Mehan in "Learning lessons: social organization in the classroom." Cambridge,…
