Beserra, Vagner; Nussbaum, Miguel; Oteo, Macarena – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019

When performing a task in the classroom, it is essential to place the focus on learning. In the classroom, it is possible to distinguish between time spent by students on-task and off-task. The former is the time in which the student is focused on the learning task; the latter is the remaining time in which they focus on other activities.…

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…

Sharp, Laurie A.; Bonjour, Gay Lynn; Cox, Ernest – International Journal of Instruction, 2019

Improving student performance in mathematics is reinforced through the use of effective teaching practices. One such practice, the math workshop approach, is a rigorous, student-centered way to teach mathematics that fosters inquiry among a community of learners. The purpose of the present study was to explore the perspectives of mathematics…

Dogan-Coskun, Sumeyra – International Journal of Instruction, 2019

The purpose of this study is to analyze pre-service elementary teachers' problems in terms of the different meanings of the addition of fractions and to determine the types of errors made in these problems. Data were collected from 83 pre-service elementary teachers in the spring semester of the 2016-2017 academic year by means of a problem posing…

Purwadi, I. Made Ari; Sudiarta, I. Gusti Putu; Suparta, I. Nengah – International Journal of Instruction, 2019

This study aimed at: (1) determining whether the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) strategy has a positive effect on students' mathematical conceptual understanding (MCU) and students' mathematical representation (MR) on fractions; (2) describing how CPA strategy can improve students' MCU and students' MR on fractions. This research used a mixed…

Kurz, Terri L.; Yanik, H. Bahadir – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2019

Elementary pre-service teachers in an upper-division algebra mathematics content course explored graphing through the use of Calculator-Based Rangers™ (CBRs). This study explores how they used the "Distance Match" feature of the technology to engage in algebraic thinking. Operating CBR technology, pre-service teachers' perceptions…

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,…

Krause, Christina M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

This Brief Report addresses the fundamental role that sign language plays in the mathematics classroom of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students. Selected findings are gathered from an ongoing study of signs and gestures used by DHH students and their teachers when encountering and communicating mathematical ideas at a German special-needs school…

Lee, Mi Yeon; Francis, Dionne Cross – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Children's literature can provide useful contexts for teaching mathematics. In this article, the authors discuss the use of the children's book "Measuring Penny" (Leedy 1997) to support Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) related to length measurement. The authors first describe three types of misconceptions…

Bertolone-Smith, Claudia M.; Gillette-Koyen, Linda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

The first author's initial attempts at a whole-class mathematics discussion were woefully dysfunctional. Ten second graders showing their answers to a missing addend question about the number of children left riding a school bus did not result in the mathematical epiphany that the textbook promised. She did not give up on using mathematical…

Rumsey, Chepina; Guarino, Jody; Gildea, Rachael; Cho, Christina Y.; Lockhart, Bethany – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Early career K-grade 2 teachers in a yearlong project explored discourse and mathematical argumentation through monthly professional development (PD) sessions. The goal of the project was to develop an understanding of the types of K-grade 2 tasks that promote argumentation, the types of discourse and argumentation that K-grade 2 students engage…
