Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Santos-Diaz, Stephanie; Bain, Kinsey; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
This work is part of a larger project that seeks to understand how students blend (integrate) chemistry and mathematics as they work through chemical kinetics problems. Here we focus on four students from our larger sample: two students that demonstrated more instances of blending chemistry and mathematics in their interviews ("high-frequency…

Ekstam, Ulrika; Korhonen, Johan; Linnanmäki, Karin; Aunio, Pirjo – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2018
Educational reforms during the last decade have led to a more inclusive environment for students with different needs and have placed demands on teachers' readiness to instruct diverse students in the general classroom. Previous research has ascertained that student achievement is correlated with teacher quality and teachers' efficacy beliefs.…

Hidayati, Kana; Budiyono; Sugiman – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Purpose: Essay test in mathematics, both in the form of restricted-response and extended-response, generally consist of polytomous scored items. However, the essay test used by teachers in Indonesia has not been fully supported by sufficient quality evidence. There have been many studies focusing on the development of the essay test, but not many…

Ariatna – TESOL Journal, 2016
Recent decades have shown growing interest among outer circle language researchers and practitioners in the discussion of communicative language teaching (CLT), as both a leading teaching model and a frequently disputed dimension of language pedagogy. Repeatedly, the debate returns to the question of how to best implement CLT as a Western product…

Hidayati, Kana; Budiyono; Sugiman – International Journal of Instruction, 2018
The character of responsibility is an important character that Indonesian students must possess. The attempts to strengthen the character of student responsibilities require in-depth information about the actual state of student's responsibility. The use of relevant, valid, and reliable instruments is necessary to obtain accurate and accountable…

Purpura, David J.; Napoli, Amy R.; Wehrspann, Elizabeth A.; Gold, Zachary S. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
The acquisition of early mathematical knowledge is critical for successful long-term academic development. Mathematical language is one of the strongest predictors of children's early mathematical success. Findings from previous studies have provided correlational evidence supporting the importance of mathematical language to the development of…

Bertolone-Smith, Claudia M.; Gillette-Koyen, Linda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
The first author's initial attempts at a whole-class mathematics discussion were woefully dysfunctional. Ten second graders showing their answers to a missing addend question about the number of children left riding a school bus did not result in the mathematical epiphany that the textbook promised. She did not give up on using mathematical…

Berger, Lisa – PRIMUS, 2018
In this article we address the Common Core State Standard for Mathematical Practice: Attend to Precision. We describe work in mathematics content courses for pre-service and inservice teachers focused on developing teachers' understanding of mathematical definitions. We discuss teachers' work in developing definitions for students at various…

Solórzano, Lorena Salazar – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2015
Beginning university training programs must focus on different competencies for mathematics teachers, i.e., not only on solving problems, but also on posing them and analyzing the mathematical activity. This paper reports the results of an exploratory study conducted with future secondary school mathematics teachers on the introduction of…

Davis, C. E.; Osler, James E. – Journal on School Educational Technology, 2013
This paper details the outcomes of a qualitative in-depth investigation into teacher education mathematics preparation. This research is grounded in the notion that mathematics teacher education students (as "degree seeking candidates") need to develop strong foundations of mathematical practice as defined by the Common Core State…

Yong, Su-Ting; Gates, Peter; Chan, Andy Tak-Yee – International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, 2018
This article explores how motivation in computer games could be integrated into mathematics education. The scope of the study was confined to four motivation dimensions, namely challenge, control, complexity and collaboration. A phenomenology study was conducted with the purpose to obtain a common understanding of nine teachers and 11 students…

Budiarto, Mega Teguh; Rahaju, Endah Budi; Hartono, Sugi – Educational Research and Reviews, 2017
This study aims to implement empirically students' abstraction with socio-cultural background of Indonesia. Abstraction is an activity that involves a vertical reorganization of previously constructed mathematics into a new mathematical structure. The principal components of the model are three dynamic nested epistemic actions: recognizing,…

Wager, Anita A.; Parks, Amy Noelle – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
In this paper the authors demonstrate how play can serve as a space for assessing and promoting children's mathematical thinking. Analyzing data from a larger study of professional development to support culturally and developmentally responsive mathematics teaching in preschool, we found that through Learning Stories, a holistic narrative…
