Blanton, Maria; Stroud, Rena; Stephens, Ana; Gardiner, Angela Murphy; Stylianou, Despina A.; Knuth, Eric; Isler-Baykal, Isil; Strachota, Susanne – American Educational Research Journal, 2019
A cluster randomized trial design was used to examine the effectiveness of a Grades 3 to 5 early algebra intervention with a diverse student population. Forty-six schools in three school districts participated. Students in treatment schools were taught the intervention by classroom teachers during regular mathematics instruction. Students in…

Somasundram, Piriya; Akmar, Sharifah Norul; Eu, Leong Kwan – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Pattern generalisation is one of the most important elements in developing functional thinking in elementary school which leads to build foundation to work with algebra in later years of education. Therefore, this study took an initiative to study the performance of year five pupils in pattern generalisation and its correlation with mathematics…

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…

Anderson, Robin Keturah; Boaler, Jo; Dieckmann, Jack A. – Education Sciences, 2018
The idea that success in mathematics is only available to those born as "mathematics people" has been challenged in recent years by neuroscience, showing that mathematics pathways develop in the brain through learning and practice. This paper reports on a blended professional learning model of online and in-person meetings during which…

Begolli, Kreshnik Nasi; Richland, Lindsey Engle; Jaeggi, Susanne M.; Lyons, Emily McLaughlin; Klostermann, Ellen C.; Matlen, Bryan J. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Individual differences in executive function (EF) are well established to be related to mathematics achievement, yet the mechanisms by which this occurs are not well understood. Comparing representations (problems, solutions, concepts) is central to mathematical thinking, and relational reasoning is known to rely upon EF resources. The current…
