Milton, Jessica H.; Flores, Margaret M.; Moore, Alexcia J.; Taylor, Ja'Lia J.; Burton, Megan E. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
To meet increasingly complex mathematics standards in late elementary school, students must conceptually understand and be fluent in the operations of multiplication and division. This includes understanding the operations' inverse relation. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of alternating concrete-representational-abstract…

Riehl, Suzanne M.; Steinthorsdottir, Olof B. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2019
This study explores the effects of number structure characteristics on student thinking in solving missing-value proportion problems. Prior research has documented that the presence of an integer ratio is beneficial, particularly if the integer relationship is within the same measure space. Less information on student performance is available,…

Putman, Shannon; Id-Deen, Lateefah – Educational Leadership, 2019
Virtual reality has the potential to revolutionize education because it immerses students in their learning, blocking out visual and auditory distractions and letting learners focus intensely on a structured learning experience. The authors describe how using virtual reality headsets helped 5th graders at Gavin Cochran Elementary School in…

Goodson, Barbara; Caswell, Linda; Price, Cristofer; Litwok, Daniel; Dynarski, Mark; Crowe, Edward; Meyer, Robert; Rice, Andrew – National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance, 2019
This report examines the frequency of particular teacher preparation experiences and explores their relationships to beginning teachers' effectiveness in improving student test scores once they get to the classroom. The report found both differences in how teachers prepare for their certification in the field and that certain experiences are…

Kopparla, Mahati; Bicer, Ali; Vela, Katherine; Lee, Yujin; Bevan, Danielle; Kwon, Hyunkyung; Caldwell, Cassidy; Capraro, Mary M.; Capraro, Robert M. – Educational Studies, 2019
Problem posing is the act of creating one's own problems, unlike the traditional practice of solving problems posed by others. Problem posing is not a commonly taught topic. Though some students have difficulties acquiring problem-posing skills, the positive effects are far reaching. A quasi-experimental research design was used to determine the…

McCloskey, Andrea; Lloyd, Gwendolyn; Lynch, Courtney – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
This study offers an account of ways in which "ritual" (McCloskey, 2014) serves as a lens for identifying societal and cultural patterns related to mathematics teaching and learning in present-day US classrooms. We use data from an ethnographic study of a fifth grade mathematics classroom in which a student teacher and a mentor teacher…

Wickstrom, Megan H.; Fulton, Elizabeth; Lackey, Dacia – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
The fifth-grade curriculum presents many opportunities to use students' prior mathematical knowledge as a way to bridge new and more difficult mathematical ideas. In this article, the authors document an area tiling task given to fifth-grade students to connect aspects of area measurement covered in earlier grades to grade-level standards such as:…

Livers, Stefanie D.; Harbour, Kristin E.; Fowler, Lindsey – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
In this article, Lindsey Fowler describes how an animal rhyme--that she shared with her fifth-grade students with the intention of assisting them with the concept of metric conversions--made fostering the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) more difficult. The addition of animals, which added an extraneous element that students mistakenly…

Hill, Heather C.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y.; Chin, Mark J. – Educational Policy, 2019
Diverse stakeholders have an interest in understanding how teacher characteristics--their preparation and experience, knowledge, and mind-sets and habits--relate to students' outcomes in mathematics. Past research has extensively explored this issue but often examined each characteristic in isolation. Drawing on data from roughly 300 fourth- and…
