Makar, Katie; Allmond, Sue – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
Children have limited exposure to statistical concepts and processes, yet researchers have highlighted multiple benefits of experiences in which they design and/or engage informally with statistical modelling. A study was conducted with a classroom in which students developed and utilised data-based models to respond to the inquiry question,…

Canadas, Maria; Molina, Marta; Gallardo, Sandra; Martinez-Santaolalla, Manuel; Penas, Maria – Mathematics Teaching, 2010
Making constructions with paper is called "origami" and is considered an art. The objective for many fans of origami is to design new figures never constructed before. From the point of view of mathematics education, origami is an interesting didactic activity. In this article, the authors propose to help High School students understand new…

Blatti, Jillian L.; Garcia, John; Cave, Danyal; Monge, Felix; Cuccinello, Anthony; Portillo, Jennifer; Juarez, Betsy; Chan, Ellen; Schwebel, Frieda – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Systems thinking, interdisciplinary research projects, and creative problem solving are ways to frame modern chemistry curricula to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, teachers, and citizens to use their skills and education to create a sustainable future. By integrating planetary boundaries, green chemistry, and the UN…

Burte, Heather; Gardony, Aaron L.; Hutton, Allyson; Taylor, Holly A. – Grantee Submission, 2017
Spatial thinking skills positively relate to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) outcomes, but spatial training is largely absent in elementary school. Elementary school is a time when children develop foundational cognitive skills that will support STEM learning throughout their education. Spatial thinking should be considered a…

Fisher, Carol – Parenting for High Potential, 2017
There is more to science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) education than simply "participating" in the arts. True STEAM means "integrating" the arts into STEM. In recent years, some educators have been reevaluating their STEM curricula and redesigning it to incorporate the arts. Others, such as the Rhode Island…

Sabbah, Daniel – Cognitive Science, 1985
Summarizes an initial foray in tackling artificial intelligence problems using a connectionist approach. The task chosen is visual recognition of Origami objects, and the questions answered are how to construct a connectionist network to represent and recognize projected Origami line drawings and the advantages such an approach would have. (30…

Taylor, Holly A.; Hutton, Allyson – Cognition and Instruction, 2013
This article describes the initial implementation of an innovative program for elementary-age children involving origami and pop-up paper engineering to promote visuospatial thinking. While spatial ability measures correlate with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) success, a focus on spatial thinking is all but missing in elementary…

Russell, R. Alan – Mathematics Teacher, 2011
A question posed by a teacher can often serve as an effective and engaging way to start a class. Sometimes, however, interesting questions arise from comments made by students. The investigation presented in this article arose from a student's very simple question: "Is there a perfect rectangle for folding origami?" The initial investigation was…

Sronce, Robin; Arendt, Lucy A. – Journal of Management Education, 2009
Classroom discussions of leadership often neglect the essential role of followers. These discussions do little to address the reality of our students' predominant roles as followers within organizations. We describe the Origami Frog exercise, an experiential exercise that enables students to discover how follower behaviors impact group process and…

Gjovik, Oistein – Mathematics Teacher, 2012
This article presents an origami activity which can lead to rich tasks in several branches of mathematics. This activity is a good first step for preservice teachers to get to know one another, start talking to one another, and start discussing mathematics. It can also show them how mathematics teaching and learning have changed to a more…

Berman, Leah Wrenn – College Mathematics Journal, 2006
This article has its genesis in an MAA mini-course on origami, where a way to get a parabola by folding paper was presented. This article discusses the methods and mathematics of other curves obtained by paper-folding.

Raimundo, Raquel; Marques-Pinto, Alexandra; Lima, Maria Luisa – Psychology in the Schools, 2013
This quasi-experimental exploratory study investigated whether a social-emotional learning program, implemented during a 1-year period, could lead to gains in social-emotional competencies and a reduction in internalizing and externalizing problems. Furthermore, it showed which pupils would benefit most from the program. The program was applied to…

Yuzawa, Masamichi; Bart, William M.; Kinne, Lenore J.; Sukemune, Seisoh; Kataoka, Minako – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 1999
Explored the effect of folding traditional origami forms on size comparison strategies among 4- to 6-year-old Japanese and American children. Found that girls in particular improved superimposition skills through practice, and children's use of superimposition strategies rather than less effective strategies also increased. (JPB)
