Karumbaiah, Shamya; Ocumpaugh, Jaclyn; Baker, Ryan S. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2019
Demographic information often proves useful for finding subpopulations in educational data. Unfortunately, it is often not collected in the log files of online learning systems, which serve as one of the primary sources of data for the Educational Data Mining community. Recent work has sought to address this issue by investigating school-level…

Altiparmak, Kemal – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
Soroban abacus training is called as mental arithmetic training in our country. It is known for mental arithmetic to increase the ability of four mode operations. Besides this, how is the situation for the students which are having Soroban abacus training in the terms of problem solving abilities, creativity, development of concepts, attraction…

Stephens, Ana; Strachota, Susanne; Knuth, Eric; Blanton, Maria; Isler, Isil; Gardiner, Angela – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
This research explores the interplay between students' understandings of proportional and functional relationships. Approximately 90 students participated in an early algebra intervention in Grades 3- 5. Before the intervention and after each year of the intervention, we evaluated their understandings of proportional and functional relationships.…

Parish, Linda – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
This case study narrative reports on the journey of *Sammy as her mindset as a learner of mathematics is challenged. Often students who are mathematically highly capable are viewed as being privileged, they are rarely placed with the cohort of struggling students. Children like Sammy who are mathematically highly capable or gifted, however, are…

Thomas, Emily; Feng, Jay – Online Submission, 2014
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of heterogeneous and homogeneous grouping on the mathematical achievement of students in third grade. Participants were 16 third graders in a self-contained classroom, assigned to either small homogeneous or heterogeneous group for math instruction for 7 weeks. Pretest-posttest scores and growth…

Reznichenko, Nataliya – Online Submission, 2013
The call for "mathematics for all" reaffirms the belief that all students should have equal access, equal educational experiences, and equal educational outcomes. Existing gap in students' mathematics achievement have long been coupled with the demographic categories of race and ethnicity, culture and language, SES and social class,…

Downton, Ann – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
This paper reports on 13 Grade 3 students' approaches to partitive and quotitive division word problems. Of particular interest was the extent to which students drew on their knowledge of multiplication to solve division problems. The findings suggest that developing a relationship between multiplication and division is more significant than…

McLeskey, James; Waldron, Nancy L. – Online Submission, 2011
Issues related to full-time inclusive programs have been particularly controversial for elementary students with learning disabilities. The nature of this controversy has changed substantially over the last decade, given the emphasis on high stakes accountability for all students in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act and IDEA 2004. In spite of…

Wong, Monica – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
Learning pathways capture the development of competence in a mathematical domain. They have been developed from empirical studies in the areas of mental computation and emergent numeracy concepts. These pathways afford teachers the opportunity to identify students' current levels of understanding, antecedent understandings and the steps that are…
