Abstracts of 12 mathematics education research reports and critical comments (by the abstractors) about the reports are provided in this issue of Investigations in Mathematics Education. The reports are: "More Precisely Defining and Measuring the Order-Irrelevance Principle" (Arthur Baroody); "Children's Relative Number Judgments: One-to-One Correspondence, Recognition of Non-Correspondence, and the Influence of Cue Conflict" (Richard Cowan); "Intuitions on Functions" (Tommy Dreyfus and Theodore Eisenberg); "The Effects of Time and Data Permutation on the Solution Strategies of First Grade Children" (Alan Dudley); "Factors Affecting Achievement in the First Course in Calculus" (Orlyn Edge and Stephen Friedberg); "Does the Teaching of Probability Improve Probabilistic Intuitions?" (E. Fischbein and A. Gazit); "Monitoring the Mathematics Achievement of Black Students" (Lyle Jones, Nancy Burton, and Ernest Davenport); "Absence of a Sex Difference in Algorithms for Spatial Problem Solving" (Robert Kail, Michael Stevenson, and Katherine Black); "Sex Differences in Children's Mathematics Achievement: Solving Computations and Story Problems" (Sandra Marshall); "Computational Estimation and Related Mathematical Skills" (Rheta Rubenstein); "Computational Estimation Procedures of School Children" (Judith Threadgill-Sowder); and "Numbers in Contextual Frameworks" (F. van den Brink).
