Kopparla, Mahati; Bicer, Ali; Vela, Katherine; Lee, Yujin; Bevan, Danielle; Kwon, Hyunkyung; Caldwell, Cassidy; Capraro, Mary M.; Capraro, Robert M. – Educational Studies, 2019

Problem posing is the act of creating one's own problems, unlike the traditional practice of solving problems posed by others. Problem posing is not a commonly taught topic. Though some students have difficulties acquiring problem-posing skills, the positive effects are far reaching. A quasi-experimental research design was used to determine the…

Karumbaiah, Shamya; Ocumpaugh, Jaclyn; Baker, Ryan S. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2019

Demographic information often proves useful for finding subpopulations in educational data. Unfortunately, it is often not collected in the log files of online learning systems, which serve as one of the primary sources of data for the Educational Data Mining community. Recent work has sought to address this issue by investigating school-level…

Kennedy, Tierney – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018

This article reports on the effectiveness of an intervention using conceptual change approaches within challenging tasks, on the mathematics gains for low-performing year 3-6 students in in six primary schools. Quantitative data from PAT-Maths testing for each year showed a consistently large effect size of 0.7 compared to expected gain data from…

Cullen, Amanda; Eames, Cheryl L.; Cullen, Craig J.; Barrett, Jeffrey E.; Sarama, Julie; Clements, Douglas H.; Van Dine, Douglas W. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

We examine the effects of 3 interventions designed to support Grades 2-5 children's growth in measuring rectangular regions in different ways. We employed the microgenetic method to observe and describe conceptual transitions and investigate how they may have been prompted by the interventions. We compared the interventions with respect to…

van der Ven, Sanne H. G.; Klaiber, Jonathan D.; van der Maas, Han L. J. – Educational Psychology, 2017

Writing down spoken number words (transcoding) is an ability that is predictive of math performance and related to working memory ability. We analysed these relationships in a large sample of over 25,000 children, from kindergarten to the end of primary school, who solved transcoding items with a computer adaptive system. Furthermore, we…

Wu, Zhonghe; An, Shuhua – Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, 2016

This study examined the effects of using the Model-Strategy-Application with Reasoning Approach (MSAR) in teaching and learning mathematics in linguistically and culturally diverse elementary classrooms. Through learning mathematics via the MSAR, students from different language ability groups gained an understanding of mathematics from creating…

Markworth, Kimberly A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

A "repeating pattern" is a cyclical repetition of an identifiable core. Children in the primary grades usually begin pattern work with fairly simple patterns, such as AB, ABC, or ABB patterns. The unique letters represent unique elements, whereas the sequence of letters represents the core that is repeated. Based on color, shape,…

Groth, Randall E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

Some statisticians have pointed out that the field of statistics essentially exists to study the variability seen in everyday life. Because variability is so foundational, the "Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education" (GAISE 2007), published by the American Statistical Association (ASA), recommend that teachers…

Jones, Dustin L.; Brown, Megan; Dunkle, Alisha; Hixon, Lindsay; Yoder, Nicole; Silbernick, Zach – Journal of Statistics Education, 2015

This study reports on the statistical content of five U.S. textbook series written for elementary students in grades 1-5. The researchers examined 17,688 pages and coded 7445 statistical tasks to determine (1) the distribution of statistical topics within textbooks, and (2) the relative emphasis on the phases of the statistical problem solving…

Linder, Sandra M.; Smart, Julie B.; Cribbs, Jennifer – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

This paper presents the results of a multi-method study examining elementary students with high self-reported levels of mathematics motivation. Second- through fifth-grade students at a Title One school in the southeastern United States completed the Elementary Mathematics Motivation Instrument (EMMI), which examines levels of mathematics…

Hefty, Lukas J. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM's) "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (2000) outlines fi ve Process Standards that are essential for developing deep understanding of mathematics: (1) Problem Solving; (2) Reasoning and Proof; (3) Communication; (4) Connections; and (5) Representation. The Common Core…

Pareto, Lena – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2014

In this paper we will describe a learning environment designed to foster conceptual understanding and reasoning in mathematics among younger school children. The learning environment consists of 48 2-player game variants based on a graphical model of arithmetic where the mathematical content is intrinsically interwoven with the game idea. The…

Wendt, Staci; Rice, John; Nakamoto, Jonathan – WestEd, 2014

The MIND Research Institute contracted with the Evaluation Research Program at WestEd to conduct an independent assessment of mathematics outcomes in elementary school grades across California that were provided with the ST Math program. Spatial-Temporal (ST) Math is a game-based instructional software designed to boost K-5 and secondary-level…

Fifty-two low performing schools were randomly assigned to receive Spatial-Temporal (ST) Math, a supplemental mathematics software and instructional program, in second/third or fourth/fifth grades or to a business-as-usual control. Analyses reveal a negligible effect of ST Math on mathematics scores, which did not differ significantly across…

Lewis, Catherine; Perry, Rebecca – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2014

Teams of educators conducted lesson study independently, supported by a resource kit that included mathematical tasks, curriculum materials, lesson videos and plans, and research articles, as well as protocols to support lesson study. The mathematical resources focused on linear measurement interpretation of fractions. This report examines the…
