This book provides examples of the ways in which 9-12 grade mathematics teachers from across North America are engaging inresearch. It offers a glimpse of the questions that capture the attention of teachers, the methodologies that they use to gather data, and theways in which they make sense of what they find. The focus of these teachers' investigations into mathematics classrooms ranges from students'understanding of content to pedagogical changes to social issues. Underlying the chapters is the common goal of enabling students todevelop a deep understanding of the mathematics they learn in their classrooms.By opening their analysis of their classroom practice to our inspection, these courageous teachers have invited us to think alongwith them and to learn more about our own teaching as a result. By sharing their work, they have given the mathematics education communityan important opportunity. Everyone who reads this book-teachers, researchers, teacher-researchers, policy makers, administrators, andothers interested in mathematics education-can learn from the findings and the light that they shed on issues important to mathematics education.This book, and the series of which it is a part, also provides the opportunity to step back and reflect on what can be learned aboutresearch from teachers who have engaged in the process. Areas of insight include: (a) the importance of collaboration and participation incommunities that value research, (b) the potential of teache...

The training of teachers to teach elementary mathematics must take the centre stage of teacher education as mathematics plays a central role in all the spheres of education, teaching and learning as every subject at school has a component of mathematics in it. It is also critical that all teachers are regarded as professional development providers, researchers and mentors of each other. This book interrogates the role elementary mathematics teachers can play in insuring effective induction as well as supervision of neophyte teachers. Its unique layout takes the reader through the stages of mentorship in mathematics by outlining the primary mathematics curricula and addressing each strand (Number, Operations and Relations; Patterns Functions and Algebra; Space and Shape (Geometry); Measurement; Data Handling) in way that enable a mathematics mentor teacher to provide professional development programmes for student teachers or neophyte teachers in the school. It offers research based instructional approaches and advice on how to develop lessons, assessment tasks, remedial and enrichment activities as well as advice on some of the research that a teacher can conduct in a school.

This book reflects the author's experience in teaching a mathematics content course for pre-service elementaryteachers. The book addresses a number of recommendations of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciencesfor the preparation of teachers demonstrating how abstract mathematical concepts can be motivated byconcrete activities. Such an approach, when enhanced by the use of technology, makes it easier for the teachersto grasp the meaning of generalization, formal proof, and the creation of an increasing number of concepts onhigher levels of abstraction. A strong experiential component of the book made possible by the use of manipulativematerials and digital technology such as spreadsheets, The Geometer's Sketchpad, Graphing Calculator 3.5(produced by Pacific Tech), and Kid Pix Studio Deluxe makes it possible to balance informal and formalapproaches to mathematics, allowing the teachers to learn how the two approaches complement each other.Classroom observations of the teachers' learning mathematics as a combination of theory and experiment confirmthat this approach elevates one's mathematical understanding to a higher ground. The book not only showsthe importance of mathematics content knowledge for teachers but better still, how this knowledge can be graduallydeveloped in the context of exploring grade-appropriate activities and tasks and using computational andmanipulative environments to support these explorations.Most of the chapters are motivated...

This book focuses on shame: a reaction to other people’s criticisms and an emotional response to knowing and doing mathematics. It is suggested that shame is a crucial feature of primary teachers’ professional identity, since it appears to disrupt their relationship with mathematics and a sense of disconnectedness to it. Three factors are being explored as regards to their action on inducing shame, namely the nature of school mathematics, teachers’ personal experiences with mathematics and the gendering of mathematics. Furthermore, a discussion for turning shame on its head is attempted. In specific, it is stressed out that there is a need for restructuring primary teachers’ professional identity by creating conditions under which mathematics is demystified, in order for teachers to (re)connect with the subject. Participating in communities of practice and developing different kinds of relationships are suggested to be productive ways of influencing primary teachers’ beliefs, attitudes and emotions about mathematics.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Mathematics - Didactics, grade: 6, Mountains of the Moon University, language: English, abstract: This study aimed at establishing teachers' quality factors that affect pupils' achievement in mathematics. The study was based on two objectives; to establish the relative effect of teacher's qualification and experience on pupils' achievement levels, to establish the relationship between teachers' commitment and pupils' achievement in mathematics. The study tested the hypotheses; there is no correlation between teacher's qualification and pupils' achievement levels, there is no relationship between teachers experience and pupils' achievement levels, there is no correlation between teachers' commitment and pupils' achievement in mathematics. The study used teachers, pupils and head teachers to obtain data, a total of 70 respondents were randomly and purposively selected from five primary schools of Kyondo sub-county, Kasese district. Basing on the findings and discussions, it was revealed that first, the teachers' qualification and experience have nothing to do with pupils' level of achievement in mathematics. Secondly, the teachers' low level of commitment is responsible for the low levels of pupils' achievement in Kyondo sub-county.

The book is written to enhance the preparation of elementary teacher candidates by offering teaching ideas conducive to the development of deep understanding of concepts fundamental to the mathematics curriculum they are to teach. It intends to show how the diversity of teaching methods stems from the knowledge of mathematics content and how the appreciation of this diversity opens a window to the teaching of extended content.The book includes material that the author would have shared with teacher candidates should there have been more instructional time than a 3 credit hour master's level course, "Elementary Mathematics: Content and Methods", provides. Thus the book can supplement a basic textbook for such a course by extending content and diversifying methods.Also, the book can support graduate level mathematics education programs which have problem-solving seminars/courses in their curriculum. The book is well-informed with (available in English) the mathematical standards and recommendations for teachers from Australia, Canada, Chile, England, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and the United States.

This work was intended to access teachers' perceptions and statistical knowledge for teaching statistics using modeling in secondary schools. The data were collected from secondary school mathematics teachers in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Questionnaire and interview were instruments employed for data collection. Thus the findings indicated that most respondents have positive perceptions for teaching statistics topics. Other main finding was teachers statistical knowledge, the results indicated that minority of teachers haven't necessary statistical knowledge for teaching statistical topics. Because in my country Ethiopia mathematics teachers' were trained to teach mathematics rather than statistics and they were took sometimes one introductory statistic course. But in secondary schools mathematics book, there are some statistical topics to be taught. It was also found that teachers didn't use modeling when they teach those topics because of different challenges like; teacher's knowledge, time, motivation, facilities, and students' background knowledge.

Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2010 in the subject Pedagogy - The Teacher, Educational Leadership, grade: -, University of Twente , course: Education science, language: English, abstract: This article is focused on unveiling the concept of TPACK in relation to teaching and learning in science and mathematics as well as the meaning of TPACK for pre-service science and mathematics teachers training. In describing this, different literatures were consulted on the meaning of TPACK, its origin and the way it can be integrated in pre-service science and mathematics teacher preparation. It was noted from literature that TPACK is the core of good teaching with technology, and that it's important for teachers to have an understanding of TPACK. Studies further show that the way pre-service teachers are taught to integrate technology, pedagogy and content is the same way they can implement the approach in their own teaching. In addition, studies argue for pre-service teachers to learn on how technology can help to enhance students learning in science and mathematics rather than learning how to teach technology. Different frameworks have been proposed on how to shift from teaching technology to using technology to enhance learning. For example some studies provide the curricular plans for developing pre-service teachers' competencies of integrating technology pedagogy and content. To enhance pre-service teachers' competency in technology integrations, some studies hav...

This book is grounded in the author's experiences of teaching mathematics forprospective elementary school teachers and conducting research on theirunderstanding of mathematical concepts. It is a reflection on practice and anattempt to cope with a double challenge: that of a teacher, in helping prospectiveteachers make sense of mathematics, and that of a researcher, in an attempt tounderstand and describe the challenges faced by students. This work fits withinthe current community interest on teacher education and provides a novel focus,with both theoretical and practical considerations.The central claim in this book is that encounters with mathematical content by prospective elementary schoolteachers constitute relearning, rather than learning, of mathematics. The specific focus is on topics related toelementary number theory (e.g. divisibility, prime factorization), which is referred to as a "forgotten queen"(following Gauss' reference to number theory as a queen of mathematics). This is the content area that has notreceived significant attention in mathematics education research. The book can be summarized as an attempt toaddress the following questions: What is relearning of mathematical content and how is it similar to or differentfrom learning? What are the examples of specific mathematical topics or concepts that require relearning? Whatpedagogical approaches can support relearning? The detailed analysis ofresearch data and pedagogical approaches presen...

Teaching Mathematics is nothing less than a mathematical manifesto. Arising in response to a limited National Curriculum, and engaged with secondary schooling for those aged 11 ̶ 14 (Key Stage 3) in particular, this handbook for teachers will help them broaden and enrich their students' mathematical education. It avoids specifying how to teach, and focuses instead on the central principles and concepts that need to be borne in mind by all teachers and textbook authors-but which are little appreciated in the UK at present.This study is aimed at anyone who would like to think more deeply about the discipline of 'elementary mathematics', in England and Wales and anywhere else. By analysing and supplementing the current curriculum, Teaching Mathematics provides food for thought for all those involved in school mathematics, whether as aspiring teachers or as experienced professionals. It challenges us all to reflect upon what it is that makes secondary school mathematics educationally, culturally, and socially important.

Motivating Mathematics demonstrates that pupils can be motivated by being given the Big Picture, including a clearer picture of the nature of maths, and by linking topics to the sciences, rather than teaching each topic in isolation. The author emphasises the many virtues of problem-solving, strongly emphasised in secondary education specifications, especially the role of perception, and the ability of pupils to create their own proofs and to appreciate 'cool' ideas and arguments.David Wells draws on his extensive experience of teaching primary and secondary pupils and his understanding not just of how students think about mathematics, but of how they feel about a subject which so often seems merely a collection of facts and rules to be mastered. This book will be of immediate practical use to teachers and students at all levels.Anyone involved in mathematics education will benefit from reading this inspiring book, whether classroom teacher, trainer, teacher in training or professional development, or even parent. The book will also be of interest to policy makers and others with an investment in the future of mathematics education.

A perennial discussion about teacher development is the optimal content background for teachers. Inrecent years, that discussion has taken center stage in the work of mathematics education researchers,mathematicians, mathematics professional developers, and mathematics education policymakers. Muchof the existing and prior work in this area has been directed toward mathematical knowledge forteaching at the elementary level. The work described in this volume takes a sometimes-neglectedapproach, focusing on the dynamic nature of mathematical understanding rather than on a stabledescription of mathematical knowledge, and on mathematics for secondary teaching rather thanmathematics for teaching at the elementary level.The work reported in Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching: A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations is a practice-basedresponse to the question of what mathematical understandings secondary teachers could productively use in their teaching. For each of more than 50events, our team of almost 50 mathematics educators who were experienced mathematics teachers developed descriptions of the mathematics thatteachers could use-each of those descriptions (consisting of the event and the mathematics related to the event) is what we call a Situation.

Although the Show-Me Project was charged with promotingthe dissemination and implementation of four distinct comprehensive curriculum programs (Connected Mathematics,Mathematics in Context, MathScape, and MathThematics), most of the lessons learned from this workare not curriculum specific. Rather, they cut across the four programs and share commonalities with standards-based curriculum reform at any level.We believe that documenting these lessons learned will be one of the legacies of the Show-Me ProjectWe anticipate that the comprehensive nature of this work will attract readers from multiple audiences that include state and district mathematics supervisors,middle grades mathematics teachers and administrators involved in curriculum reform, as well as mathematics teacher educators. Those aboutto embark on the review of curriculum materials will appreciate reading about the processes employed by other districts. Readers with interests in aparticular curriculum program will be able to trace the curriculum-specific chapters to gain insights into how the design of the curricula relate to professionaldevelopment, adoption and implementation issues, and teachers' personal experience using the curriculum materials.

Mathematics can be fun and exciting if we as teachers make it exciting and fun for our students. Our goal, as authors of this book, is to help you find creative ways to bring enjoyable mathematics material into your classroom. TAG - Tricks, Activities, and Games are ideas that we have implemented in our own teaching to help students explore, discover, conjecture, investigate, verify, explain, and understand mathematics in a creative and motivating way. It is important to arouse each student’s curiosity by presenting mathematics in fresh and stimulating ways that are captivating and motivating. The ideas presented in this book are designed to help students become powerful mathematics thinkers and to help them make sense out of mathematics. Based on the NCTM Standards and NCTM’s new Focal Points, we have emphasized Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis and Probability. We have provided objectives, materials, procedures, and solutions to the entries.

A Volume in The Montana Mathematics Enthusiast:Monograph Series in Mathematics EducationSeries Editor Bharath Sriraman, The University of MontanaThe intent of this monograph is to showcase successful implementation ofmathematical discourse in the classroom. Some questions that might beaddressed are:* How does a teacher begin to learn about using discourse purposefully toimprove mathematics teaching and learning?* How is discourse interwoven into professional development content courses toprovide teachers with the tools necessary to begin using discourse in their ownclassrooms?* What does a discourse-rich classroom look like and how is it different from other classrooms, from both theteacher's and the students' perspectives?* How can teachers of pre-service teachers integrate discourse into their content and methods courses?* How can we use discourse research to inform work with teachers, both pre- and in-service, for example, to helpthem know how to respond to elicited knowledge from students in their classrooms?* What are the discourse challenges in on-line mathematics courses offered for professional development? Canon-line classrooms also be discourse-rich? What would that look like?* In what ways does mathematical discourse differ from discourse in general?

Many students at secondary schools in Kenya have not been performing well in Mathematics. This has forced the Government of Kenya to among other things try to increase the salaries of the teachers, organize In-service Education and Training (INSET) for the trained teachers. However, the situation has not improved much. This research looked at an approach to teaching and learning of mathematics where the learners are fully involved in the learning process. Results showed that the approach improved students confident and the experimental group performed well in problems that required High Order Thinking Skills (HOTS). This shows that curriculum developers and teachers should read the text with a view to implementing the findings in the schools.

Эта книга — репринт оригинального издания (издательство "New York, The Macmillan company; London, Macmillan & co., ltd.", 1896 год), созданный на основе электронной копии высокого разрешения, которую очистили и обработали вручную, сохранив структуру и орфографию оригинального издания. Редкие, забытые и малоизвестные книги, изданные с петровских времен до наших дней, вновь доступны в виде печатных книг.A history of elementary mathematics with hints on methods of teaching This book provides examples of the ways in which 9-12 grade mathematics teachers from across North America are engaging inresearch. It offers a glimpse of the questions that capture the attention of teachers, the methodologies that they use to gather data, and theways in which they make sense of what they find. The focus of these teachers' investigations into mathematics classrooms ranges from students'understanding of content to pedagogical changes to social issues. Underlying the chapters is the common goal of enabling students todevelop a deep understanding of the mathematics they learn in their classrooms.By opening their analysis of their classroom practice to our inspection, these courageous teachers have invited us to think alongwith them and to learn more about our own teaching as a result. By sharing their work, they have given the mathematics education communityan important opportunity. Everyone who reads this book-teachers, researchers, teacher-researchers, policy makers, administrators, andothers interested in mathematics education-can learn from the findings and the light that they shed on issues important to mathematics education.This book, and the series of which it is a part, also provides the opportunity to step back and reflect on what can be learned aboutresearch from teachers who have engaged in the process. Areas of insight include: (a) the importance of collaboration and participation incommunities that value research, (b) the potential of teache...
