Presenters: Dawn Teuscher, Brigham Young University and J. Matt Switzer, Texas Christian University Location: AMTE 2018 in Houston, Texas Abstract/Description: We share findings from an analysis of eight pre-service secondary mathematics teachers’ ability to notice student mathematical thinking while student teaching and discuss differences among student teachers who had varying degrees of exposure to analyzing video during their undergraduate program.
Presenters: Keith Leatham, Brigham Young University; Blake Peterson, Brigham Young University; Shari Stockero, Michigan Technological University; Mary Ochieng, Western Michigan University; and Laura Van Zoest, Western Michigan University. Location: AMTE 2018 Conference in Houston, Texas Abstract/Description: We characterize teachers’ orientations related to using student mathematical thinking as a resource during whole-class discussion. We consider the potential these orientations provide to either support or hinder the development of the practice of building on student mathematical thinking.
Presenters: Scott Hendrickson and Sterling Hilton, Brigham Young University Location: NCSM Conference, Washington DC Abstract/Description: The Comprehensive Mathematics Instruction (CMI) Framework developed by the Brigham Young University Public School Partnership informs teachers on how to align CCSSM content standards along a progression from emerging ideas, strategies and representations towards more robust conceptual, procedural, and representational understanding. In this session participants will use the CMI framework to deepen their understanding of a subset of high school standards as they select, sequence and connect these standards across a learning cycle of instruction.
