Edelen, Daniel; Bush, Sarah B.; Nickels, Megan – Science and Children, 2019
Because students have often been conditioned as passive learners and receivers of knowledge, it can be difficult for them to persevere in solving authentic problems. Nevertheless, teachers must persist in preparing students as problem solvers and critical thinkers. In an urban inner-city neighborhood school in the southeast, students embarked on a…

Vondrová, Nada; Novotná, Jarmila; Havlícková, Radka – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
Research has shown that word problem difficulty is influenced by various linguistic, numerical and general variables, but results in this area are inconsistent. This paper focuses on the question of how the order of numerical data, the context, the position of the unknown transformation, and the length of the statement in an additive word problem,…

Martínez, José Manuel; Ramírez, Laura – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
When the focus of instruction is on learning to use mathematical tools--such as a ruler or a calculator--as a procedure, students tend not to incorporate their own mathematical reasoning. This unreflective use of tools hinders students' questioning of the reasonableness of their answers. This article describes how children expressed their…

Hopple, Christine J. – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2018
"Fun" is considered, from both research and practical knowledge, to be a critical factor in children's decision to participate (or not) in physical activity (PA). Despite its importance, few studies have provided in-depth investigations into what children really mean when they say an activity is fun. The purpose of this article is to…
