Survey 4: Getting Math Ed Content

Blogs and the micro-blog Twitter were identified as the most popular places to get mathematics education content. Each received 28% of the vote. The Journal for Research in Mathematics Education was second (17%) and Educational Studies in Mathematics was third (11%). These are widely considered the two top journals in our field. The practitioner journals from NCTM were not as popular as I expected (6%). And some respondents also indicated that they prefer talking to other mathematics educators.

55% of respondents identified as researchers, 33% as teacher educators, and 33% as teachers. The teachers who responded all selected either blogs or Twitter as their favorite source of mathematics education content.

Samuel Otten from the University of Missouri discusses the article "Univocal and dialogic discourse in secondary mathematics classrooms: The case of attending to precision," published in ZDM - The International Journal on Mathematics Education, Volume 47. (Co-authors: Chris Engledowl and Vickie Spain)

The concluding music is "The Highway" by Samuel Otten, based on the short story by Ray Bradbury. And on Sam's list of favorite TV shows, the third slot will sometimes go to Modern Family over Breaking Bad depending on the time of year.

Survey 3: Interpreting NAEP Results

The recent NAEP results for mathematics should be interpreted in a nuanced way, as expected for something that boils down international educational issues into quantitative scores. Poll results revealed a variety of interpretations. (Respondents were 9 researchers or teacher educators, 12 teachers or teacher leaders, and 2 administrators)

24% said that the drop was due to the reduction of probability and statistics in the Common Core (but that content was still tested on NAEP), with researchers especially favoring this explanation. Another 24% said that this is a minor blip in a long-term upward trend in math scores, with both administrators giving this interpretation. Teachers gave a variety of responses. Of all respondents, 14% viewed it as a major indictment of Common Core (and one viewed it as a failure of implementation) and 14% viewed it as a minor indictment of No Child Left Behind.
