Hambleton, Ronald K.; Rogers, H. Jane – 1986
This report was designed to respond to two major methodological shortcomings in the item bias literature: (1) misfitting test models; and (2) the use of significance tests. Specifically, the goals of the research were to describe a newly developed method known as the "plot method" for identifying potentially biased test items and to…

Sowder, Judith T.; Wheeler, Margariete M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989
Investigates the development of concepts and processes associated with computational estimation. Twelve students at each of grades three, five, seven, and nine were interviewed. The older children understood better than the younger children what was asked but were uncomfortable with estimation processes and outcomes. (Author/YP)

Baroody, Arthur J. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1990
Reviewed is an integrated approach to teaching place-value concepts. A semi-integrated approach is proposed which may provide a more effective implementation of the technique. (CW)

Ball, Deborah Loewenberg – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1990
Analyzed were 19 preservice teachers' understanding of division in 3 contexts. The teachers' knowledge was generally fragmented, and each case of division was held as a separate bit of knowledge. (Author/YP)

Konold, Clifford; And Others – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1993
Examined inconsistencies in secondary school students' reasoning about the probability concept of equally likely events. Results of two studies suggest that the number of students who understand the concept of independence is much lower than the latest National Assessment of Educational Progress results indicate. (Contains 22 references.) (MDH)

Swafford, Jane O.; Kepner, Henry S., Jr. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1980
This article reports a field evaluation of experimental first-year algebra materials, "Algebra Through Applications." Effectiveness of the materials was evaluated in terms of achievement, attitude, transfer to consumer, problem solving, readability, and implementation. Overall, it was found the experimental materials could be used…

Silverman, Helene J. – New York State Mathematics Teachers' Journal, 1996
Presents various simple activities to use with two-color counters as a vehicle for teaching concepts such as observation, classification, counting, recording, graphing, developing relational language, number sense, and beginning ideas of probability. (AIM)

Schoen, Harold L.; And Others – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1981
Two grade 4 classes provided subjects for a study in the teaching of estimation in computation. A second study was conducted with two grade 5 and two grade 6 classes that supported the idea that estimation in whole number computation can be taught in a short period of time. (MP)

Claire, Susan – 1992
Between September 1990 and December 1991, Cabrillo College implemented the Math, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) program to increase the number of underrepresented minority students enrolling in scientific disciplines at Cabrillo and subsequently transferring to four-year colleges. The initial program was targeted to 200 MESA members…

Carpenter, Thomas P.; Franke, Megan L.; Jacobs, Victoria R.; Fennema, Elizabeth; Empson, Susan B. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1998
Presents a three-year longitudinal study investigating the development of children's (n=82) understanding of multidigit number concepts and operations in grades one through three by using interview processes. Provides an existence proof that children can invent strategies for adding and subtracting and illustrates both what that invention affords…

Schliemann, Analucia D.; Araujo, Claudia; Cassunde, Maria Angela; Macedo, Suzana; Niceas, Lenice – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1998
Analyzes the use of the commutative property for solving multiplication problems by children who learn about multiplication in schools and by street vendors who solve multiplication problem through repeated addition. Concludes that the use of commutativity to solve multiplication problems is closely related to the use of multiplication. Contains…

Hart, Hillary; Glick-Smith, Judith L. – Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, 1994
Discusses differences between academic and industry training in technical communication. Argues that each needs to learn from the other and cooperate in developing truly beneficial curricula which would prepare students to function effectively in the organization, streamline the organization's information processes, and adapt quickly to change.…

Marcovitz, Alan B., Ed. – 1977
A computer program for numeric and symbolic manipulation and the methodology underlying its development are presented. Some features of the program are: an option for implied multiplication; computation of higher-order derivatives; differentiation of 26 different trigonometric, hyperbolic, inverse trigonometric, and inverse hyperbolic functions;…

Luk, HingKwan – 1991
This study examined whether an expert system approach involving intelligent selection of items (EXSPRT-I) is as efficient as item response theory (IRT) based three-parameter adaptive mastery testing (AMT) when there are enough subjects to estimate the three IRT item parameters for all items in the test and when subjects in the item parameter…
