Evolution of Mathematics Teachers' Pedagogical Knowledge when They are Teaching through Modeling

2017-01-01
Use of mathematical modeling in mathematics education has been receiving significant attention as a way to develop students. mathematical knowledge and skills. As effective use of modeling in classes depends on the competencies of teachers we need to know more about the nature of teachers. knowledge to use modeling in mathematics education and how this knowledge evolves. The aim of this study is to investigate how teachers. pedagogical knowledge to use modeling in the classroom is formed and modified through professional development activities based on lesson study cycle from modeling perspective. The professional development program reported in this study included five monthly cycles consisted of meeting before the implementation, implementation of the activity and a follow up meeting. The participants were four in-service mathematics teachers. Results showed that the program provided opportunities for teachers to test, revise, and refine their knowledge. More specifically, teachers generated effective strategies for proper implementation of the modeling activities in the classroom.

The Development of Belief Scale about Using Origami in Mathematics Education
Arslan, Okan; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Şahin, Elvan (2013-01-01)
This study aims to develop valid and reliable scale in order to measure preservice teachers' beliefs towards using origami in mathematics education. Origami in Mathematics Education Belief Scale which consists of 27 items with 6 point Likert type was administered to 143 preservice elementary mathematics teachers and obtained data was analyzed with exploratory factor analysis. According to analysis results, one item was deleted and some items were revised. After these revisions, the scale consists of 26 item...
Exploring secondary mathematics teachers’ conceptions of mathematical literacy
Genç, Murat; Erbaş, Ayhan Kürşat; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2017)
The purpose of this research study was to investigate secondary mathematics teachers’ conceptions of mathematical literacy. In doing so, the following three crucial interrelated issues were addressed: (i) teachers’ conceptions of what the notion of mathematical literacy means, (ii) teachers’ conceptions of how the development of mathematical literacy could be facilitated, and (iii) teachers’ conceptions of what a mathematics curriculum emphasizing mathematical literacy should look like. The data gathered fo...
