Windows into mathematics teaching through data maps

Diezmann, Carmel M. (2003) Windows into mathematics teaching through data maps. In 26th Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, July 6-10 2003, Geelong, Australia.


Although perceptual inference facilitates reasoning, there has been scant attention to the use of icons in visual displays of qualitative data. This paper uses an iconic data map to provide a wholistic representation of two teachers’ mathematics teaching and to establish similarities and differences in their practice. The map had five advantages for data display and analysis related to visual memory, strategic professional development support, the identification of anomalies, differences between espoused and enacted teaching beliefs, and the identification of further research questions. Thus, iconic data maps are a powerful tool in the display and analysis of qualitative data.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
