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,…

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…

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…

Akbas, Elif Ertem; Cancan, Murat; Kiliç, Esra – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The present study aimed to examine an effective mathematics teacher's qualifications from the perspectives of secondary school students. The study was a qualitative one carried out with the descriptive model. The study was carried out with 40 students from all the four class grades of a secondary school (10 students from each class grade) in…

Koopman, Maaike; Thurlings, Marieke; den Brok, Perry – Research Papers in Education, 2019
In this study, we investigated which teacher characteristics influence student proficiency development regarding fractions in Grade 5 of Dutch primary education. At least three domains of research (i.e. perspectives) on effective teaching can be distinguished: studies focusing on teachers' background characteristics, on their knowledge and…

Tømte, Cathrine Edelhard – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2019
We study the implementation of a MOOC initiative which involved two distinct teacher education institutions at HEIs, and where the implementation was led by a governmental body. Our aim was to see in what ways this initiative changed the teacher education involved, in terms of institutional organisation and pedagogics. Based on interviews with…

Chesnutt, Katherine; Gail Jones, M.; Corin, Elysa N.; Hite, Rebecca; Childers, Gina; Perez, Mariana P.; Cayton, Emily; Ennes, Megan – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
This study examined the relationship between students' (N = 229) concepts of size and scale and students' achievement in science and mathematics over a 3-year period. Size and scale are considered one of the big ideas in science that permeates disparate science and mathematics content areas, yet little is known about the relationship between…

Crawford, Lindy; Quebec Fuentes, Sarah; Huscroft-D'Angelo, Jacqueline; Higgins, Kristina N. – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2019
Meaningful inclusion of quantitative reasoning into mathematics instruction requires meaningful ways to evaluate it. Few formative assessments exist to evaluate the strategies students use when reasoning mathematically. The Framework for Evaluating Quantitative Reasoning Strategies presented in this article provides teachers with categories for…

White, Kyli; McCoy, Leah P. – Networks: An Online Journal for Teacher Research, 2019
Games-based learning involves instruction with realistic game experiences (Cicchino, 2015). This action research study explored game-based learning as fifth grade mathematics students completed a brief unit on ordered pairs utilizing game-based lessons. Attitude and achievement data were collected mainly by surveys, content tests, student…

Matic, Ljerka Jukic – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Various curriculum resources have emerged over the last decades, but the textbook still remains the most used teaching and learning resource in mathematics classrooms. In this paper, we use a case study to analyse the teaching practice of one mathematics teacher. The aim of the study is to examine how the mathematics teacher interacts with the…

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…

Di Martino, Pietro – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Educators and several national standards highlight the role that problem solving should play in students' mathematics education: problem solving is recognized as one of the most significant activities of doing mathematics. From the research point of view, nowadays, it is well established that cognitive and affective factors come into play in…

Karademir, Cigdem Aldan; Deveci, Ozge – Online Submission, 2019
Based on Confucius' saying "A word may change your mind, an emotion may change your life and a person may change you", our emotions affect our learning if we take life as a process of learning. Some of our learning on which we are successful and unsuccessful are student characteristics. Effective properties are one of the characteristics…
