Fagell, Phyllis L. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Although the world is changing rapidly, young people's developmental trajectory has remained the same. Just as in the past, today's young adolescents with still-developing prefontal cortexes are malleable, impulsive, and impressionable. But Phyllis Fagell identifies three areas where today's tweens are different from those of the past. They are…

Ahmadpour, Fatemeh; Reid, David; Reza Fadaee, Mohammad – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2019
We present a model for describing the growth of students' understandings when reading a proof. The model is composed of two main paths. One is focused on becoming aware of the deductive structure of the proof, in other words, understanding the proof at a semantic level. Generalization, abstraction, and formalization are the most important…

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,…

Morris, Monique W. – Educational Leadership, 2019
"What we believe about young people matters--it informs how we treat them and what they come to believe about themselves," writes Pushout author Monique Morris. Unfortunately, according to recent studies, adults tend to view black girls as less innocent and childlike than their peers. This biased belief can lead to harsher discipline in…
