This case study follows the journeys of two middle school mathematics teachers as they endeavour to reform their teaching practices. The study examines the interrelationship between mathematics histories, teacher efficacy, professional development and social context on the evolution of mathematics beliefs and disposition to change.The findings underscore the centrality of emotional and intellectual work in the educational change process. Intellectually, teachers struggle to develop new understandings of mathematics and pedagogy, while emotionally they struggle with feelings of self-doubt and ineptness. Despite the intellectual and emotional labour, the research participants committed themselves to reforming their practices. The study demonstrates that this positive disposition to change develops over a lifetime and is nurtured by various sources. These diverse experiences cultivate personal and professional characteristics that significantly impact one"s perspective on mathematics teaching and educational change. Specifically, the participants" cited reform mathematics beliefs; confidence in their content and pedagogical content knowledge; high self-efficacy and teacher efficacy beliefs; personal commitment to learning, supplemented by the view that teaching is, in itself, educative; and affective characteristics including risk-taking, creativity, ambition, and curiosity as being central to their ability to embrace educational change in their mathematics practices.Finally, the findings highlight external factors that may foster teachers" willingness to pursue changes within their practice. Specifically, the research emphasizes the importance of encouraging teachers to (1) self-select professional development experiences, of which should focus equally on exploring mathematics beliefs and developing practices; (2) seek the support of a purposefully chosen mentor; and (3) develop a mentoring mosaic, which may include developing collegial relationships, enrolling in relevant university courses, reading applicable journals and other resource materials that may support teachers" efforts to change their mathematics practices.The study is significant as it reveals the merit of mathematics histories as a viable means for understanding the origin and duration of teachers" beliefs, thus reducing inconsistencies between espoused beliefs and teaching practices. The study demonstrates the significance of mathematics stories in providing alternative perspectives for understanding the development of teachers" beliefs about mathematics and pedagogy, the sources of their confidence and efficacy beliefs, and their disposition to change.

In this conceptual piece, I explore complex and contradictory conversations during an idea mapping task in which prospective elementary teachers interrogated dominant discourses within mathematics education, such as “mathematics is everywhere” and “being a math person.” I argue that this exercise of engaging with contradictions provided prospective teachers with opportunities to tease.

Reconstructing Mathematics Education: Stories of Teachers Meeting the Challenge of Reform. Schifter, Deborah; Fosnot, Catherine Twomey This book tells the stories of teachers who, guided by evolving understandings of constructivist mathematics learning, are meeting the challenge of reconstructing their teaching by: The examples in the book can provide meaningful considerations then for those looking to understand modeling in context, which may be the best way to understand how contemporary science is engaged in the practice of reconstructing reality." -- Melissa Jacquart, Science and EducationCited by: Reconstructing Mathematics Pedagogy from a Constructivist Perspective constructivist teaching experiment in which problems of teaching practice required the teacher/researcher to explore the Author: Martin Simon.

Constructivist epistemologies have been instrumental in recent research on mathematics learning and have provided a basis for recent mathematics education reform efforts. Although constructivism has the potential to inform changes in mathematics teaching, it offers no particular vision of how mathematics should be taught; models of teaching based on constructivism are by: Pereira P.

That’s a big plus for students who struggle with working memory. Repeated practice of related skills done over time helps them to quickly retrieve information and keeps up their math. Reconstructing Reality Models, Mathematics, and Simulations Margaret Morrison Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Science.

Addresses several issues that are significant for the philosophical literature as well as subjects of interest to philosophically-minded scientists. Common Core mathematics is a way to approach teaching so that students develop a mathematical mindset and see math in the world around them.

We are making problem-solvers. No matter what your objectives, textbook, or grade level, the eight mathematical practice standards are a guide to good math.

The pages in this Practice Book can be assigned in order to provide practice with key skills during each unit of the Bridges in Mathematics curriculum. The pages can also be used with other elementary math curricula. If you are using this Practice Book with another curriculum, use the tables of pages grouped by skill (iii–vi) to assign pages.

In her recent book Reconstructing Reality, Margaret Morrison, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, suggested to rethink the relationship between models, simulations and reality from different epistemological and methodological perspectives.

This book is intended to give students at the advanced undergraduate or introduc tory graduate level, and researchers in computer vision, robotics and computer graphics, a self-contained introduction to the geometry of three-dimensional (3- D) vision.

This is the study of the reconstruction of 3-D.

Kansas Mathematics Flip Books The development of the “flip books” is in response to the adoption of the Kansas Mathematics Standards in Teachers need a reliable starting place that contains information and examples related to the Kansas standards.

Taking a starting point below that of GCSE level, by assuming no prior mathematical knowledge, Surinder Virdi and Roy Baker take the reader step by step through the mathematical requirements for Level 2 and 3 Building and Construction courses. Unlike the majority of basic level maths texts available, this book focuses exclusively on mathematics as it is applied in actual construction practice.

Conclusion Childrenâ s mathematics learning can be improved if they experience a planned, sequenced curriculum that uses the research- based teaching-learning paths described in this report, as well as inte- grated mathematics experiences (e.g., mathematics in the context of a storybook) that extend mathematical thinking through play.

The examples in the book can provide meaningful considerations then for those looking to understand modeling in context, which may be the best way to understand how contemporary science is engaged in the practice of reconstructing reality. * Melissa Jacquart, Science and Education *.

In Reconstructing Reality: Models, Mathematics and Simulations (Oxford University Press, ), Margaret Morrison, Professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto, considers the epistemological status of the results of modeling and simulation as compared, and typically contrasted with, the results of experiment.

This is an essay about philosophy and the application of philosophy for social and educational practitioners on a daily basis.

It argues that philosophy as social practice, as a way of living, is the great absence in formal education at all levels in many countries around the world. Philosophy is not to be taught in schools but is to be lived through curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. It is best to take this practice test under timed conditions.

The practice guide suggests that children’s exposure to math should extend beyond number and operations to include a range of math content areas, including geometry (shapes and space), patterns, measurement, and data analysis.
