Investigations in Mathematics Education, Volume 5 Number 1.
Higgins, Jon L., Ed.
This is the first issue of a new quarterly series containing expanded abstracts of recent research in mathematics education. (Previous issues were occasional publications of the School Mathematics Study Group.) The twenty abstracts review research articles published in the past two years, and are classified in four sections: (1) Aspects of mathematics learning, (2) Mathematics instruction and instructional materials, (3) Mathematics achievement and its correlates, and (4) Teacher education and evaluation. Each abstract includes an objective indication of the purpose, rationale, research design and procedure, findings, and interpretation of the investigation as originally reported, together with a critical analysis by the abstractor. All abstractors are mathematics educators in professional positions. For ease of reference, each abstract includes the ERIC accession numbers, descriptors, and identifiers of the article. Future issues of this publication will include abstracts of non-journal material available through the ERIC service. (MM)
