Maffia, Andrea – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Integrating history of mathematics in classes could be a hard task with young pupils. Indeed, original historical sources have a language that is far from the modern one. Such texts represent cultural artefacts that can give access to mathematical knowledge. The teacher can exploit such potential acting as a mediator between the mathematical signs…

Cipriano, Christina; Barnes, Tia N.; Rivers, Susan E.; Brackett, Marc – Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, 2019
The present paper examines if developmental pathways for students at risk for academic failure can be improved through social and emotional learning (SEL). Specifically, we test this hypothesis by accounting for shifts in student engagement, a highly studied and malleable construct often inclusive of SEL interventions, as the pathway by which to…

Du, Xuejiao; Zhang, Qi – Educational Psychology, 2019
Previous research has verified the benefits obtained when learners trace out worked examples with the index finger. Our study conducted two experiments to explore the reasons for this phenomenon and its generalizability. Experiment 1 compared the learning effects among tracing, non-tracing, and cueing methods. The cueing method was included to…
