Use the Floats and Anchors context as well as physical and digital materials to help students understand integer addition and subtraction.
Construct It! Introducing Integers with Floats and Anchors
Christy Pettis and Aran Glancy
Model It! Devising a Model to Represent College Football Rankings
Rachel Wiemken, Gabriel Matney, and Brandon Floro
A model eliciting activity based on our students’ outside interests sparks engagement with modeling and interesting debates.
Reproducing Research Capacity Through Interinstitutional Collaboration Around Doctoral Courses
This editorial follows November's editorial with suggestions for how our field could engage in interinstitutional collaboration to offer coursework that can both scaffold novice researchers' acquisition of the knowledge our research field has produced and provide a foundation for furthering the reproduction and improvement of our field's research capacity.
A thank you to the people who reviewed manuscripts for JRME.
The Doctorate Is Part of the Infrastructure of Our Research Field
This editorial argues that the promotion of research in mathematics education, particularly in the present moment in the United States, requires deliberate thinking about how doctoral preparation supports the development of the human infrastructure for research.
Who We Are and Who We Wish to Be: Identifying as a Mathematics Teacher Educator
Michael D. Steele
Stewarding Our Commons for the Infinite Game of Research
Citizens of democratic societies have come to be in a situation in which they are much more likely than before to connect only to like-minded people and to have little desire to talk to people who think differently. This fragmentation makes all of us prone to take offense at the views or life choices of others, to label them as deviant or ignorant, and then to feel righteous about discounting their views. Living in a democratic society can be described, in words, as an infinite game–a game that we play to be able to continue playing it.
Positionalities in Our Practices and Papers
Kate R. Johnson and Leilani C. Fonbuena
This editorial highlights the complexities of how mathematics teacher educators' identities influence their beliefs, values, and practices or their positionalities.
Using Programming to Express Mathematical Ideas
Deborah Spencer, June Mark, Kristen Reed, Paul Goldenberg, Kate Coleman, Kathryn Chiappinelli, and Zachary Kolar
Integrating programming activities into core mathematics instruction can increase children’s access to critical content. Programming gives children a language with which to express, refine, and extend their thinking.
In Memoriam Jeremy Kilpatrick: An Editor’s Editor
My academic family lost our patriarch, Jeremy Kilpatrick, on September 17, 2022. As I write this in October, reflecting on his legacy to our field feels timely. After a brief biographical sketch, I explore how Jeremy's influence, particularly in his role as Editor in Chief of JRME, shaped our fieldand my own work as editor.
