Erdem, Emrullah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The current study examines the mental computation performance owned by students at fifth grade. This study was carried out with 118 fifth graders (11-12-year-olds) studying at 3 randomly selected primary schools that served low and middle socio-economic areas in a city of Turkey. "Mental Computation Test (MCT)" has been used to reach how…

Kuldas, Seffetullah; Sinnakaudan, Santi; Hashim, Shahabuddin; Ghazali, Munirah – Education 3-13, 2017
Although the early development of children's number sense is a strong predictor of their later mathematics achievements, it has been overlooked in primary schools in Malaysia. Mainly attributable to underdeveloped number sense of Malaysian primary and secondary school children, their inability to handle simple mathematics tasks, which require the…

Thomsen, Brian M. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Too many students are entering post-secondary education lacking foundational mathematics skills that are critical to performance on placement examinations. As a result, students are forced to take remedial courses that are often non-credit bearing and hinder their progress toward graduation. Research suggests that a lack of number sense may…

Kidd, Terry, Ed.; Morris, Lonnie R., Jr., Ed. – IGI Global, 2017
Incorporating new methods and approaches in learning environments is imperative to the development of education systems. By enhancing learning processes, education becomes more attainable at all levels. "The Handbook of Research on Instructional Systems and Educational Technology" is an essential reference source for the latest scholarly…

Zhang, Qing; Brode, Ly; Cao, Tingting; Thompson, J. E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
We describe the construction and initial demonstration of a new instructional tool called ROXI (Research Opportunity through eXperimental Instruction). The system interfaces a series of electronic sensors to control software via the Arduino platform. The sensors have been designed to enable low-cost data collection in laboratory courses. Data are…

Hochstein, Lara; Bale, Alan; Barner, David – Language Learning and Development, 2018
We investigated "scalar implicature" in adolescents and children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to test whether theory of mind deficits associated with autism affect pragmatic inferences in language. We tested scalar implicature computation in adolescents with ASD (12-18 years) and asked whether they reason about mental states when…

Brooks, Neon B.; Barner, David; Frank, Michael; Goldin-Meadow, Susan – Cognitive Science, 2018
People frequently gesture when problem-solving, particularly on tasks that require spatial transformation. Gesture often facilitates task performance by interacting with internal mental representations, but how this process works is not well understood. We investigated this question by exploring the case of mental abacus (MA), a technique in which…

Lafay, Anne; St-Pierre, Marie-Catherine; Macoir, Joël – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2017
Numbers may be manipulated and represented mentally over a compressible number line oriented from left to right. According to numerous studies, one of the primary reasons for dyscalculia is related to improper understanding of the mental number line. Children with dyscalculia usually show difficulty when they have to place Arabic numbers on a…

Liu, Ru-De; Ding, Yi; Xu, Le; Wang, Jia – Journal of Educational Research, 2017
The authors' aim was to examine the relation between two-digit mental multiplication and working memory. In Study 1, involving 30 fifth-grade students, we used digit span backward as an abbreviated measure of working memory. In Study 2, involving 41 fourth-grade students, working memory comprised measures of phonological loop, visuospatial…

Woods, Dawn Marie; Ketterlin Geller, Leanne; Basaraba, Deni – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2018
A strong foundation in early number concepts is critical for students' future success in mathematics. Research suggests that visual representations, like a number line, support students' development of number sense by helping them create a mental representation of the order and magnitude of numbers. In addition, explicitly sequencing instruction…

Koyunkaya, Melike Yigit – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Students need to construct strong knowledge of angles as well as relationships between angles and side lengths in a triangle to succeed in geometry. Although many researchers pointed out the importance of angles and angle-related concepts, students and teachers have had limited knowledge of these concepts. This study is a part of a larger study,…

Tague, Jenna; Joseph, Manjula Peter; Zhang, Pingping – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
The focus of the current proposal is to examine the effect of two dynamic simulations on the participants' conceptions of rate of change. Conceptions of rate of change were measured according to Carlson et al.'s (2002) Mental Actions framework and how the participants related the physical simulations to the graphical representations (Heid, et al.,…

Vrachnos, Euripides; Jimoyiannis, Athanassios – Themes in Science and Technology Education, 2017
Developing students' algorithmic and computational thinking is currently a major objective for primary and secondary education in many countries around the globe. Literature suggests that students face at various difficulties in programming processes, because of their mental models about basic programming constructs. Arrays constitute the first…

Bender, Andrea; Beller, Sieghard – Cognitive Science, 2017
Mangarevan traditionally contained two numeration systems: a general one, which was highly regular, decimal, and extraordinarily extensive; and a specific one, which was restricted to specific objects, based on diverging counting units, and interspersed with binary steps. While most of these characteristics are shared by numeration systems in…
