Mutlu, Yilmaz – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to determine the dimensions of the relationship between math anxiety and mathematics achievement of the third grade students with and without mathematics learning difficulties. Data were collected from 288 elementary school students using math anxiety scale and math achievement test tools. The mathematics achievement test…

Henderson, Christie – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
Embedding mathematics in a relatable context has changed the way Christie Henderson's elementary students view the subject. In this article, Henderson discusses how presenting mathematics through a relatable context enables students to visualize the math and make a pictorial representation to aid them in solving it. When relevant and relatable…

Hoffman, Daniel L.; Paek, Seungoh; Zhou, Zhou; Türkay, Selen – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2021
This study examined the relationship between elementary students' domain-specific and game-specific motivations in the context of educational videogames. Using a quasi-experimental design, thirty (N = 30) sixth grade students were assigned to two groups based on their level of motivation for the domain of math (higher math motivation vs. lower…

Berkowitz, Talia; Gibson, Dominic J.; Levine, Susan C. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2021
Differences in children's math knowledge emerge as early as the start of kindergarten, and persist throughout schooling. Previous research implicates the importance of early parent number talk in the development of math competency. Yet we understand little about the factors that relate to variation in early parent number talk. The current study…

Basargekar, Abha; Lillard, Angeline S. – Early Child Development and Care, 2021
The math curriculum of the Montessori system of education for children ages 3-12 is distinctive, incorporating multiple manipulatives and educational practices which have theoretical and empirical support in research. However, studies investigating the math achievement and learning of Montessori students and alumni have not consistently found…

Darragh, Lisa – set: Research Information for Teachers, 2021
Maths games are fun and engaging, but what messages do these games send to the students in our classrooms? During mathematics lessons children learn more than just mathematics content; they also come to understand what it means to be a learner of mathematics. In this article I discuss the concept of "mathematics learner identity" and use…

Pantoja, Nancy; Schaeffer, Marjorie W.; Rozek, Christopher S.; Beilock, Sian L.; Levine, Susan C. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
Math anxiety negatively predicts young children's math achievement. While some researchers have suggested that math anxiety may stem from poor math ability, others have argued that math anxiety occurs at all levels of math ability. An important question is whether math anxiety predicts math achievement over and above foundational math skills. We…

Ganga, Elizabeth; Mazzariello, Amy – Education Commission of the States, 2018
In an effort to make math courses more relevant and improve success rates in college math, various organizations and colleges developed a new model of math education that has come to be called "math pathways." Math pathways enable students to take different paths through the math curriculum, depending on their course of study. With math…

Pearson, 2018
Pearson sought to explore whether the use of MyLab Math for Developmental Math, a teaching and learning platform predominantly used in higher education by students who need remediation on foundational math skills, is related to students' course grades and likelihood of passing the course. This Research Report presents findings from two research…

Callahan, Rebecca M.; Humphries, Melissa; Buontempo, Jenny – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2021
Mathematics is not just memorized facts, but rather it is understanding how to approach and solve problems, and problem-solving requires linguistic proficiency. Too often, English learners' (ELs) relatively low math performance is dismissed due to their supposed "limited" English proficiency. Taking this perspective, a constructivist…

Everette, Meghan; Shuldiner, Benjamin – Educational Leadership, 2020
A professional development program in Salt Lake City aims to show math teachers what it's like to be in a math class oriented around discourse and inquiry. The effort, write Meghan Everette and Benjamin Shuldiner, is helping the teachers gain a sense efficacy in this critical but underutilized area of math instruction.

Mandal, Sourav; Naskar, Sudip Kumar – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2021
Solving mathematical (math) word problems (MWP) automatically is a challenging research problem in natural language processing, machine learning, and education (learning) technology domains, which has gained momentum in the recent years. Applications of solving varieties of MWPs can increase the efficacy of teaching-learning systems, such as…

Kurtulus, Aytaç – Educational Research Quarterly, 2021
The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationships between the flow states and undergraduate attitudes' towards math and engagement in a mathematics course in an education faculty. The results showed that the more positive attitudes the students had towards mathematics courses, the more flow they experienced and the less anxiety they had in…

Coleman, LauraMarie – Educational Leadership, 2020
Students and teachers often approach math with a single goal in mind: to get the right answer. But teachers must resist the urge to simply teach a procedure, writes educator LauraMarie Coleman. Instead, they should make a conscious decision to facilitate a discussion that leads to deeper student learning.
