Rumiati, Rumi; Wright, Robert – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
An assessment approach from Mathematics Recovery was used to document the number knowledge of 20 first-graders and 20 second-graders in an Indonesian school. Sixteen first-graders were at the advanced-counting-by-ones stage and fourteen second-graders were facile. As well, fifteen first-graders and eleven second-graders were at the level of an…

Sarouphim, Ketty M.; Maker, C. June – Online Submission, 2009
The purpose of this study was to examine ethnic and gender differences in using DISCOVER, a performance-based assessment, for identifying gifted students from diverse ethnicities. DISCOVER is an acronym which stands for Discovering Intellectual Strength and Capabilities while Observing Varied Ethnic Responses. The sample consisted of 941 boys and…

Duncan-Owens, Deborah – Online Submission, 2008
The effects of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation and the publication of the National Reading Panel (NRP) report profoundly affected how reading is taught in public schools as well as how program effectiveness is evaluated. The disequilibrium that resulted from state and federal mandates governing reading instruction set the stage for the…

Outhred, Lynne; Mitchelmore, Michael – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This paper presents the results of a study of the structural development of young students' drawings of arrays, and in particular, the significance of using lines instead of drawing individual squares. Students' array drawings were classified on basis of numerical properties, and perceived structural similarities that reflected the spatial…

Ronning, Frode – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
The object of this paper is to present and analyze some observations of the language children in 1st grade (6-7 years old) use when they talk about geometrical objects. The observations are made during a number of encounters with the pupils during one year. The work is part of an ongoing collaboration project between a university college and a…

Meron, Ruth; Peled, Irit – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This study investigated the development of an additive schema from the perspective of the schema's flexibility in coping with new context and unfamiliar semantic structure. It followed 27 first graders who learned addition and subtraction using an experimental curriculum. The instruction involved a didactical model combining the context of two…

Mulligan, Joanne; Prescott, Anne; Mitchelmore, Michael – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
In a descriptive study of 103 grade 1 children, including 16 longitudinal case studies, we investigated the use of mathematical structure across a range of mathematical tasks. Children's structural development was inferred from their imagistic representations, supported by analysis of problem-solving behavior during videotaped task-based clinical…

McDonough, Andrea; Clarke, Doug – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2003
Within a major numeracy project, there were marked differences in achievement between classes, which, as reported in Sullivan and McDonough (2002), we attribute to the teachers. To gain insights into the practices of effective teachers, six case studies of highly effective teachers at the Prep (first year of school) to Grade 2 level were…
