This article presents findings from a study in which the author served as an expert coach and provided ongoing support to four elementary school teachers related to employing standards-based pedagogies in their mathematics classrooms. In addition to assisting teachers, the author examined which supports they sought and the impact of them on mathematics instruction. Data were collected through participant interviews, classroom observations, and anecdotal notes. Inductive qualitative analysis...

This report explores first year undergraduate mechanical engineering and mathematics students' conceptions of the derivative and the contribution that membership of different departments may have on these conceptions. Quantitative results suggest that mechanical engineering students develop a proclivity for rate of change aspects of the derivative whilst mathematics students develop a proclivity for tangent-oriented aspects. The analysis of qualitative results further suggests that students'...

The uses of programable calculators in the mathematics classroom are presented. A discussion of the "microelectronics revolution" that has brought programable calculators into our society is also included. Pointed out is that the logical or mental processes used to program the programable calculator are identical to those used to program any computer. A list and description of thirteen mathematical- and computer-related concepts that students can learn by working with programable...

This paper describes a teacher-researcher's efforts to reshape students' attitudes and assumptions about mathematics in concert with the national mathematics standards. Changes as well as the ways students clung to traditional classroom roles are described. Mathematics formats and types of activities that were successful--and unsuccessful--for engaging students in mathematics inquiry are presented. Initiatives are proposed to move students further toward inquiry, and the supports teachers need...

This report examines the first generation of the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Implementation and Dissemination Centers. It portrays the experiences of and captures the lessons learned in such a way that it informs the design of future centers. Ideas drawn from the discussions that took place at a conference held in Annapolis, Maryland in June 2001 are presented. Analytical in its perspective, this report discusses the key dimensions along which center design decisions must be made...

This book is designed to help academic teachers in middle or secondary education develop an appreciation of career-focused education and begin the process of designing career-focused instruction. (Career-focused instruction is educational programming in which curriculum content and learning experiences clearly connect to the world of work.) For career-technical teachers, these sample instructional units give rich examples of how integrated instruction works in real classrooms. The book contains...

The equivalence between a statement and its contrapositive is so obvious for an expert that, usually, he does not need any explanation. In this paper, we shall examine the argumentations which students produce in order to justify a statement that, in their opinion, is equivalent to a given statement. We shall observe that the most common argumentations come out from the effort to adjust the proof of the first statement to the second one. Analysing these argumentations, it will emerge that for...

This article proposes a framework for classroom teachers to use in making pedagogical decisions regarding which mathematical materials (concrete and digital) to use, when they might be most appropriately used, and why. Two iPad apps ("Area of Shapes (Parallelogram)" and "Area of Parallelogram") are also evaluated to demonstrate the usefulness of the framework in assisting teachers to evaluate digital resources in terms of their pedagogical, cognitive and mathematical...

In this set of six booklets on graphing, intermediate grade students learn how to choose which kind of graph to make; make bar graphs, histograms, line graphs, and conversion graphs; and use graphs to compare two sets of data. The major emphasis in all Unified Sciences and Mathematics for Elementary Schools (USMES) units is on open-ended, long-range investigations of real problems. In most instances students learn through observing results of their own and their classmates' experiments....

The first Standard Grade courses have been in place in Scotland for almost ten years. This document reports on a study with the following goals: (1) to describe the actual mathematical competencies of pupils gaining grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 in Standard Grade Mathematics; (2) to describe the competencies shown in school work by pupils failing to achieve at least grade 6 in Standard Grade Mathematics; and (3) to identify any changes that might seem desirable in grade-related criteria which might...

In this commentary, Danny Martin describes five key take-aways and two sets of questions that arose from his reading of "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematics Success for All (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM], 2014). Martin begins by noting that "Principles to Actions" is clearly a political document that advances particular views and visions of mathematics teaching and learning and per the copyright page of the document, represents the "official...

The college retention rates for underrepresented minorities (URM) in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) are lower than other groups. One reason may be that the studies often do not view premature departure from a cultural perspective. This exploratory investigation focused on developing an instrument that employed a cultural perspective to detect differences based on racial/ethnic group affiliation. The instrument derived from the literature is examined using principal...

The current period in mathematics education can be characterized as one of reform. Many feel that children in the United States are not learning enough appropriate mathematics; these critics are concerned with the specific areas of problem solving and children's conceptions of the nature and uses of mathematics. A pretest/posttest experimental design study examined the effects of SQUARE ONE TV, a television series about mathematics aimed at 8- to 12-year-old children, on the problem-solving...

This study was conducted from the perspective that the under-representation of women in science is, at least partially, a consequence of learning, and therefore, may be considered a symptom of a hidden curriculum in science education. A nine page review of the literature is presented on this subject. This study investigated the direct and indirect influences of sex and several intervening variables on the quantitative science course selection among college undergraduates using the High School...

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students in the United States know and can do in various academic subjects. The 1996 NAEP in mathematics assessed the current level of mathematical achievement as a mechanism for informing education reform. In 1996, 44 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and the Department of Defense schools took part in the NAEP state mathematics assessment program. The NAEP 1996...

This paper is theoretical in orientation and explores the limitations of the current field of mathematics education which has been dominated by social theories of learning. It is proposed that the field is approaching its limits for these theories and there is a need for shift that moves from the idiosyncratic possibilities of subjective meaning making and identity formation to a more profound position of "knowledge making." There have been few, if any, advances in equity target group...

While mathematics education research has often focused at the level of the classroom (Rousseau Anderson & Tate, 2008), there are emerging calls for attention to shift from individual classrooms to consider the process of reform at the school or district level. Investigating the role of the institution and conditions of the organization becomes crucial in order to fully understand classroom practice and to move beyond existence proofs to take reform to scale (Cobb & Jackson, 2011; Cobb...

These tasks were designed to assess acquisition of concepts identified as formally related to various aspects of number concepts. Tasks within a concept area were...
