Suppa, Siobahn; Hohensee, Charles – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2021
Pre-symbolic algebra has been advocated for as a mathematics topic elementary students should experience to better prepare them for middle and high school algebra. However, most elementary pre-service teachers have little to no experience with pre-symbolic algebra. The study reported here analysed the struggles that ten elementary pre-service…

Lewis, Katherine E.; Sweeney, Gwendolyn; Thompson, Grace M.; Adler, Rebecca M.; Alhamad, Kawla – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2022
Algebra is a gatekeeper. For the 6% of students with dyscalculia (i.e., mathematical learning disabilities), an inability to pass algebra may significantly limit academic and career opportunities. Unfortunately, prior research on dyscalculia has focused almost exclusively on elementary-aged students' deficits in speed and accuracy in arithmetic…

Haider, Muhammad Qadeer; Andrews-Larson, Christine – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2022
This study evaluates the effectiveness of inquiry-oriented instruction in introductory linear algebra classes by comparing the performance of students who learned introductory linear algebra concepts in inquiry-oriented settings (TIMES students) with the students who attended other linear algebra classes (Non-TIMES students). We used the…

Long, Holly; Bouck, Emily; Domka, Anna – Exceptionality, 2021
Limited research exists to target algebra instruction for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). In this study, researchers compared the use of concrete -- with scaffolds added by researchers -- and virtual algebra tiles -- with inherent scaffolds -- to support the acquisition, fluency, and generalization of linear…

McCoy, Bradley K. – Physics Teacher, 2021
In a typical first physics class, homework consists of problems in which numerical values for physical quantities are given and the desired answer is a number with appropriate units. In contrast, most calculations in upper-division undergraduate physics are entirely symbolic. Despite the need to learn symbolic manipulation, students are often…

Handsman, Emily; Farrell, Caitlin; Coburn, Cynthia – Sociology of Education, 2022
The year students take Algebra I historically determines how far they progress in secondary mathematics, creating complex equity issues around access to this course. By examining a case study of one large, urban school district adjusting to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M), we demonstrate how district leaders' interactions,…

Çetin, Ömer Faruk – Education Quarterly Reviews, 2022
The study aims to explore how the mathematics teachers taking post-graduate education use their Algebra knowledge for the expression, "You can't add apples and pears" that is expressed in almost every segment of the society, in creating mathematical content. The data of the research consisted of the written answers of the thirty-seven…

Genareo, Vincent R.; Foegen, Anne; Dougherty, Barbara J.; DeLeeuw, William W.; Olson, Jeannette; Karaman Dundar, Ruveyda – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Although algebra often functions as a gatekeeper to higher-level mathematics courses and higher education admissions, few quality measures exist for assessing conceptual understanding. This study explored the technical adequacy of three procedural and two conceptual algebra screening measures. We administered three rounds of assessments throughout…

Strickland, Tricia K. – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2022
The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) were released more than 10 years ago. This set of standards outlines the mathematics that all students should know and be able to do to prepare them for post-secondary education and employment. Students with learning disabilities (LD) continue to underperform in relation to their peers without…

Barbieri, Christina Areizaga; Young, Laura K.; Newton, Kristie J.; Booth, Julie L. – Child Development, 2021
Fraction knowledge and algebraic skill are closely linked. Algebra is a gatekeeper for advanced courses (Booth & Newton, 2012; Brown & Quinn, 2007). This study uses the person-centered approach of latent profile analysis to examine individual differences in middle schoolers' (N = 350) algebra performance at the end of the year (EOY). The…

What Works Clearinghouse, 2021
Parents and caregivers can use the activities in this report to help youth learn to solve algebra problems using different strategies. Knowing different strategies for solving algebra problems may help your child approach algebra problems with confidence. Children could apply the most appropriate strategy for a particular problem or could try a…

Deneault, Ethan A.-N. – Physics Teacher, 2022
To a student in introductory physics, using vectors is at best an exercise in bookkeeping. A two-dimensional kinematics problem effectively doubles the number of equations that a student must know, and invites the student to memorize factoids: "The horizontal motion is constant," "Gravity is only in the y-direction," etc. Force…

Chirove, Munyaradzi; Ogbonnaya, Ugorji Iheanachor – Journal of Research and Advances in Mathematics Education, 2021
The acquisition of procedural and conceptual knowledge is imperative for the development of problem solving skills in mathematics. However, while there are mixed research findings on the relationship between the two domains of knowledge in some branches of mathematics, the relationship between learners' procedural and conceptual knowledge of…

Gordon, Sheldon P.; Gordon, Florence S. – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2021
The authors discuss the status of college algebra and related offerings and their relationship to introductory statistics education. They also describe an innovative approach to college algebra that integrates a significant amount of statistical reasoning and concepts and statistical methods as natural applications of basic ideas that are part of…

Bone, Erin K.; Bouck, Emily C.; Smith, John P., III – Journal of Special Education Technology, 2022
Algebra is considered by many to be a gateway to higher-level mathematics and eventual economic success yet students with and without disabilities often struggle to develop algebra skills. This study builds on the limited understanding of how virtual manipulatives support students with disabilities in the area of algebra by investigating their use…
