Xu, Chang; LeFevre, Jo-Anne – Child Development, 2021
How do children develop associations among number symbols? For Grade 1 children (n = 66, M = 78 months), sequence knowledge (i.e., identify missing numbers) and number comparison (i.e., choose larger number) predicted addition, both concurrently and indirectly at the end of Grade 1. Number ordering (i.e., touch numbers in order) did not predict…

Hwang, Sunghwan; Yeo, Sheunghyun; Son, Taekwon – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2021
Developing textbooks of optimal quality is crucial for enriching the students' learning and understanding. This study examined fraction addition and subtraction problems in the U.S. and South Korean mathematics textbooks according to the types of denominators. In particular, we investigated Everyday Mathematics (EM) and South Korean mathematics…

Yorulmaz, Alper; Uysal, Hümeyra; Sidekli, Sabri – Journal of Education and Learning (EduLearn), 2021
The aim of the study was to determine the concepts that primary school fourth-grade students reveal with their mind maps related to four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) and to compare the mind map and achievement test scores. In the study, a mixed method was used in which quantitative and qualitative data were…

Ziegler, Esther; Edelsbrunner, Peter A.; Stern, Elsbeth – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher-directed and self-directed learning have been compared across various contexts. Depending on the settings and the presentation of material, mixed benefits are found; the specific circumstances under which either condition is advantageous are unclear. We combined and reanalyzed data from two experimental studies investigating the effects of…

Shurr, Jordan; Bouck, Emily C.; Bassette, Laura; Park, Jiyoon – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Basic mathematic skills at the early age are foundational for later learning. Many students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) struggle in academic learning without sufficient support. Research in the area of concrete manipulatives--tangible representations of abstract concepts--has been found effective. In addition, promising research has…

Cox, Sarah K.; Root, Jenny R.; Gilley, Deidre – Journal of Special Education Technology, 2021
The Pandemic has required teachers to find ways to provide high-quality instruction in a virtual format. Video-based instruction (VBI) is a version of technology-aided instruction that has been effectively used in classrooms to improve mathematical outcomes for students with disabilities. This manuscript describes how a special education teacher…

Wessman-Enzinger, Nicole M.; Mooney, Edward S. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
In this article, we report the findings of a study conducted with 6 Grade 8 students in the United States. The students posed stories for open number sentences involving addition and subtraction of integers. We analysed the stories posed by the students to build models that describe the conceptual structures behind these posed stories -- the…

Scalise, Nicole R.; Ramani, Geetha B. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2021
Young children's symbolic magnitude understanding, or knowledge of how written numerals and number words can be ordered and compared, is thought to play an important role in their mathematical development. There is consistent evidence that symbolic magnitude skills predict mathematical achievement in later childhood and adulthood. Yet less is…

Hwang, Jiwon; Riccomini, Paul J. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Developing an understanding of fractions is critical as a significant predictor for the learning progression of advanced domains; however, students face significant challenges in learning fractions because of their unique properties. To systematically approach remediation, this study examined the common error patterns committed by middle-school…

Haman, Maciej; Lipowska, Katarzyna – Developmental Science, 2021
People tend to underestimate subtraction and overestimate addition outcomes and to associate subtraction with the left side and addition with the right side. These two phenomena are collectively labeled 'operational momentum' (OM) and thought to have their origins in the same mechanism of 'moving attention along the mental number line'. OM in…

Tomasetto, Carlo; Morsanyi, Kinga; Guardabassi, Veronica; O'Connor, Patrick A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Whereas some evidence exists that math anxiety may interfere with math performance from the very beginning of primary school, no study to date has attempted to investigate whether math anxiety may also interfere with early math learning (i.e., the encoding of new math knowledge) and not only with recalling already mastered contents in test…

Vermeulen, Jorine A.; Béguin, Anton; Eggen, Theo J. H. M. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
This study explored the relationships between task beliefs about the empty number line (ENL), mathematical ability, gender, and voluntary ENL use in multi-digit subtraction and addition. One hundred twenty-three Dutch third-grade students and nine teachers from six schools participated in this study. The multilevel path analysis showed that task…

Zhang, Shuang; Wang, Jian; Flores, Raymond – Action in Teacher Education, 2021
The analysis of word problem types and schema-based diagrams are assumed useful for helping students and thus, important for preservice teachers to learn in their preparation programs. Drawing on pre-and post-assessments and videotaped demonstrations, this study analyzed elementary preservice teachers' understanding of addition and subtraction…

Krause, Gladys; Maldonado Rodríguez, Luz A.; Adams-Corral, Melissa – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Lina, a Mexican American second grader, bilingual in Spanish and English, used a strategy for adding two two-digit numbers that the authors share as an example of the importance of listening to the mathematical ideas of children, especially when these ideas do not align with how mathematics is traditionally represented in the classroom. The…

Özkubat, Ufuk; Karabulut, Alpaslan; Uçar, Ahmet Serhat – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2021
Focusing on students with mild disabilities, this study aimed to examine the effect of STAR problem solving strategy on their a) solving change problems involving one-step addition and subtraction, b) maintaining their acquisition of solving change problems involving one-step addition and subtraction after 1, 3, and 5 weeks, c) generalizing their…
