The Relationship between the Number Sense and Problem Solving Abilities of Year 7 Students
Louange, Jemmy; Bana, Jack
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper reports on a component of a large yearlong study in three Year 7 classes in three different schools. The aim of this research component was to determine the relationship between students' number sense and their problem-solving ability by means of paper-and-pencil tests, classroom observations, and interviews of students and teachers. The results revealed a strong correlation between these two aspects of school mathematics, with important implications for classroom teachers. Number Sense Item Sample is appended. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
