Completed manuscript accepted for 2019 publication, math instrument study with federal accountability test scores
Data
A 10 question algebra mathematics instrument (multiple choice) using ‘metric sense’ to measure/inventory subject specific domain knowledge base items (cognitive ability in algebra/math expressions). Derived from a theoretical manuscript. Math underpinnings: A vector space with the usual metric (distance) explored in secondary mathematics education....
Conference Paper

This theoretical manuscript reports on (a) a definition of ‘metric sense’ [9], (b) specific roles of mini-experts in Second Generation Instructional Design (ID2) [11], and, (c) creates a mathematics instrument using ‘metric sense’ to inventory Email jefflear@jefflear.com for instrument and comments. Article accepted for conference June 24, 2019,...

Mathematics learning outcomes have specific cognitive development implications [2], [9]. Empirical studies in mathematics learning have contributed greatly in our understanding of mathematical spaces, structures, and learning. Key contributions in ‘structure sense’ studies build upon a theoretical manuscript detailing a conceptualization of ‘thinki...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Physics and mathematics learning outcomes have specific cognitive development implications. Some empirical studies in the learning of physics have focused on gender gap reduction using interactive engagement (IE) learning environments. Interactive engagement classrooms differentiate by dialectic approach and autonomy supportive behavior; seeking to...
Article

Factors contributing to school improvement continue to garnish international interest. The problem is school leadership teams possess little information on 'distributed leadership systems' which engage teachers in sustainable school reform. This manuscript continues a line of literature initiated to develop an instrument for measuring instructional...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the United States, there is a continued interest in factors that contribute to school improvement. The problem is that teachers and administrators within our schools possess little information on 'distributed leadership systems' which engage teachers in leadership activities toward sustainable school reform. Instructional Leadership studies usin...
Presentation
Full-text available
The purpose of this study is to examine specific mathematical instructional practices that can be aligned with one of the CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice, in particular “look for and make use of structure” (2010 Common Core State Standards Initiative, 2010). The structure inherently identified with Euclidian Geometry and high school algebr...

For full text contact jefflear@jefflear.com http://jefflear.com The topic of this thesis is Barrelled spaces, a locally convex topological vector space. The uniform boundedness principle is one of the most important theorems in functional analysis. This thesis will provide a review in the theory of topological vector spaces, present the uniform bo...

This research will inform on standardized teacher leadership activities consistent with a shared responsibility of instructional leadership. Regional instrument use may measure teacher leadership activity toward sustaining school improvement.
