At the intersections of the embodiment and emergence for a mathematics teacher educator 2010 154 Research in mathematics education and curriculum theory currently has a very limited set of intersections. Few education researchers claim to work in both fields. I draw on the work of those few researchers for my own understandings as a mathematics ...
Connected Tasks: The Building Blocks of Reasoning and Proof 2010 991 Do you find it challenging to find mathematical tasks that promote reasoning in your classroom? What type of tasks do you feel are the most important for children to investigate? Finding patterns, and making and justifying conjectures are consi...
Imagery and Utilization of an Area Model as a Way of Teaching Long Division: Meeting Diverse Student Needs 2010 3775 The teaching and learning of long division at the elementary level and beyond has presented a longstanding challenge for teachers and students alike. As mathematics teacher educators and as a specialized educator, we address the issue by analyzing so...
Investigating Quadrilaterals as an Ongoing Task 2010 844 In this article we discuss an open-ended problem involving quadrilaterals that we continually offer each semester. The task has been posed to undergraduate and graduate students in methods and problem solving classes. The task involves drawing all po...
Linking proportionality across the science and mathematics curricula through science literacy maps. 2008 525 Middle level science and mathematics teachers should collaborate to clarify concepts for students in each of these disciplines. The topic of proportionality is an excellent choice for a collaborative effort, as understanding proportionality is import...
Prospective elementary teachers use of representation to reason algebraically 2009 430 We used a teaching experiment to evaluate the preparation of preservice teachers to teach early algebra concepts in the elementary school with the goal of improving their ability to generalize and justify algebraic rules when using pattern-finding ta...
Signs and tools of algebraic reasoning: A study of models among fifth grade students. 2012 156 This study focuses on the types of models created by students during algebraic pattern finding tasks. Attention is also given to the change in models over time. This is an important area of study because a closer look is needed to better understand t...
Traveling Representations in a Fifth Grade Classroom: An Exploration of Algebraic Reasoning 2010 257 In this three-day teaching experiment along with follow up interviews, algebraic concepts related to pattern-finding tasks were examined with 25 fifth grade students. The specific focus centered on representations from a realistic mathematics educati...
