Within the field of mathematics teacher education, mathematics graduate students have recently become subjects of investigation. While research in this area tends to focus on future schoolteachers, little has been done to examine prospective university teachers of mathematics and their...
This study explores Grade Seven students’ experiences of doubt and certainty in mathematics. During nine months of (bi-monthly) sessions, students responded to several mathematical prompts; their interactions with each other and with the teacher- researcher were video-taped, transcribed, and...
Observing High-school Students' Mathematical Understanding and Mathematical Proficiency in the Context of Mathematical ModelingDownload
The use of mathematical modeling in education has been investigated for the last five decades. The benefits of bringing modeling into mathematics classes are well known and well accepted, and modeling is becoming more common and more appealing to mathematics teachers. However, there are still...
Authoring Themselves as Mathematical Learners: Students' Experiences of Learning to Learn High School MathematicsDownload
High school mathematics students often complete homework and study for unit tests without support to consider how these actions could contribute to their mathematical learning. However, students can, through the process of learning to learn mathematics, to bring into view how they learn...
This research begins with an argument for the implementation of a professional development model that would empower mathematics teachers to make changes to their mathematical teaching practices. As this argument evolves so does the need for further investigation into what key components are...
A qualitative study, framed within a hermeneutic phenomenological stance, was undertaken to explore and describe the essence of the meaning of help in mathematics from the perspective of high school students. Participants were drawn from seven high schools located in the eastern and mid-eastern...
Carving Curriculum out of Chaos: Exploring Teacher Interventions and the Patterning of Small Groups in Mathematics ClassDownload
Small group work is becoming an increasingly popular structure for promoting communication, sense-making, and reasoning in the mathematics class. This increased sense of student autonomy must co-exist with the curriculum, the expectation to provide opportunities for students to master certain...
Recent shifts towards spatial issues within education are examined, and mapping is identified as particularly important. The multidisciplinary trend of complexity science is surveyed, in turn, through the lens of physics and education research. The provincial education system of Alberta is...
Post Ujamaa School-community Connectedness in Tanzania: Exploring Learning Communities in Rural AreasDownload
This study explores how do schools and communities work together to generate learning communities. One community case in remote rural areas of Tanzania was selected for the study. The community was selected on the criterion that it showed hopeful practices of school-community connectedness and of...
In this dissertation, I propose that network theory offers a useful frame for informing mathematics education. Mathematical understanding, like the discipline of formal mathematics within which it is subsumed, possesses attributes characteristic of complex systems. As the techniques of network...
