Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching. A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations

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. Wedeveloped our Framework for Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching (MUST) based on an analysis of our entire set of Situations. Wecall the work practice-based because the MUST framework is based on actu...

Sergei Abramovich Topics in Mathematics for Elementary Teachers. A Technology-Enhanced Experiential Approach (PB)

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...

Rina Zazkis Relearning Mathematics. A Challenge for Prospective Elementary School Teachers

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...

Tony Gardiner Teaching Mathematics at Secondary Level

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.

A volume in Research in Curriculum and InstructionSeries Editor: O. L. Davis, Jr. The University of Texas at AustinIn many elementary classrooms, social studies has taken a back seat to EnglishLanguage Arts and Mathematics in the wake of No Child Left Behind and Race tothe Top This volume is not another hand-wringing lament. On the contrary, theelementary educators who have contributed to this volume have a positive set ofstories to tell about how social studies can play a central role in the elementary classroom, how teachers can integratesocial studies knowledge and skills throughout the school day, and how this learning can carry over intochildren's homes and communities.The seven case studies in this book, one at each elementary grade level, highlight exemplary teachers in whoseclassrooms social studies is alive and well in this age of accountability. At the end of each case study, eachteacher provides advice for elementary teachers of social studies. Our hope is that elementary teachers and prospectiveteachers, elementary principals, social studies supervisors, staff developers, and professors of elementarysocial studies methods who study the stories that we tell can beempowered to return social studies to its rightful place in the curriculum.

Panagi Despo Shame in Mathematics. Turning It on Its Head

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.

Biira Majuma Teacher Quality Factors and Pupil.s Achievement in Mathematics in Primary Six

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.

Shenkut Habtamu Teachers. Perception, Knowledge And Use Modeling For Teaching

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.

Rieke Kathleen a. Teacher Certification Effects on Student Achievement in Mathematics

This study involves identifying the value added to student achievement by a teachers' certification pathway. States have control in critical aspects of teacher education including licensing, accreditation, advanced certification, and on-the-job evaluation, all which play into making substantial differences in the policies and practices employed by the states. In reviewing the research on teacher knowledge from the elementary education certification avenue, there have been some conflicting results pertaining to the level of content knowledge required to maximize student achievement. The elementary pathway to obtain a license to teach middle school mathematics involves a distinctly different amount and level of content coursework than a secondary pathway. This book provides insight into understanding how to support middle school mathematics teachers in the preparation for the certification process so they have the competence and skill to deliver quality instruction to their students. The analysis should help inform hiring practices, preparation programs, and teacher licensing requirements in an effort to maximize achievement potential for all students preparing for algebra.

Approaches to Studying the Enacted Mathematics Curriculum

Curriculum materials are among the most pervasive and powerful influences on schoolmathematics. In many mathematics classes, student assignments, the questions theteacher asks, the ways students are grouped, the forms of assessment, and much moreoriginate in curriculum materials. At the same time, teachers have considerable latitude inhow they use their curriculum materials. Two classes making use of the same materialsmay differ markedly in what mathematics content is emphasized and how students are engaged in learning that content.This volume considers a variety of research tools for investigating the enactment of mathematics curriculum materials,describing the conceptualization, development, and uses of seven sets of tools. Mathematics education researchers,curriculum developers, teacher educators, district supervisors, teacher leaders, and math coaches will find insights that canimprove their work, and guidance for selecting, adapting, and using tools for understanding the complex relationshipbetween curriculum materials and their enactment in classroom instruction.

Teachers Engaged in Research. Inquiry in Mathematics Classrooms, Grades 6-8 (PB)

Through the chapters in this volume we learn about the research foci and/ or questions that these classroom teachers are interested in examining,the mathematics content through which they engaged their students in these explorations, the data sources they used to make sense oftheir focus and questions, and their roles in the research.An overarching theme through all the chapters in this volume is the learning and professional development that occurs through teacherresearch. What these authors learned about student learning and their own teaching practice far exceeded the focus of their particularresearch questions. For some, the research validated their beliefs and instructional practices; for others, it deepened or extended their understandingof mathematics, or raised their expectations of students' capabilities. For all, it is fair to say, their research increased their awarenessof how students come to know and understand mathematics, and enabled them to gain insight into the complexity of teaching. Lampert(2001) noted, "One reason teaching is a complex practice is that many of the problems a teacher must address to get students to learn occursimultaneously, not one after another" (p. 2). We, as readers, gain a window into these teachers' research within and about the complexity ofclassroom teaching.

Dharmendra Kumar Yadav Dominating Sequential Functions. Superset of Elementary Functions

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Mathematics - Miscellaneous, Vinoba Bhave University (Shivaji College, University of Delhi), language: English, abstract: The present book introduces new functions named as dominating functions, sequential functions and dominating sequential functions, which dominates all most all classical elementary functions. Following the tradition each new function has been divided into four types as trigonometric, hyperbolic, exponential and logarithmic functions. In the book we find that the classical elementary functions are the particular case of the new functions. This is the reason of calling them dominating functions. In fact dominating functions behave like superset of the classical one as will be seen in the book. These functions solve the lack of mathematical notations for many nonelementary functions generated from indefinite integrations. Some of the examples have been given in the present book. The students, teachers and researchers will find new functions for further research in different areas of mathematics, physics, etc.
