Goos, Merrilyn, Ed.; Brown, Ray, Ed.; Makar, Katie, Ed. – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2008
This document presents the proceedings of the 31st Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA). The theme of this conference is "Navigating Currents and Charting Directions." The theme reminds us that, although we are constantly pushed to account for the quality and impact of our research, we…

Collins, Belva C.; Hager, Karen L.; Galloway, Carey Creech – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2011
The purpose of this investigation was to add functional content during core content instruction of language arts, science, and math. The investigation involved three middle school students with moderate disabilities who participated in the state's alternate assessment. During instruction using a constant time delay procedure to teach required…

Berg, Derek H.; Hutchinson, Nancy L. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
This study investigated whether processing speed, short-term memory, and working memory accounted for the differential mental addition fluency between children typically achieving in arithmetic (TA) and children at-risk for failure in arithmetic (AR). Further, we drew attention to fluency differences in simple (e.g., 5 + 3) and complex (e.g., 16 +…

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,…

Hameroff, Stuart R. – Cognitive Science, 2007
In their article, "Is the Brain a Quantum Computer,?" Litt, Eliasmith, Kroon, Weinstein, and Thagard (2006) criticize the Penrose-Hameroff "Orch OR" quantum computational model of consciousness, arguing instead for neurocomputation as an explanation for mental phenomena. Here I clarify and defend Orch OR, show how Orch OR and neurocomputation are…

Salamoura, Angeliki; Williams, John N. – Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2007
This paper investigates the shared or independent nature of grammatical gender representations in the bilingual mental lexicon and the role word form similarity (as in the case of cognates) plays in these representations. In a translation task from Greek (L1) to German (L2), nouns that had the same gender in both languages were translated faster…

Reys, Robert E.; Nohda, Nobuhiko – 1994
This book, written by participants of a joint Japan-United States seminar, drawing upon years of classroom and research experience, examines how computation applies in basic and far-reaching ways, starting in early childhood and continuing throughout individuals' lives. The book presents both the Japanese and American views of computational…

McClary, LaKeisha; Talanquer, Vicente – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2011
The central goal of this study was to characterize the mental models of acids and acid strength expressed by advanced college chemistry students when engaged in prediction, explanation, and justification tasks that asked them to rank chemical compounds based on their relative acid strength. For that purpose we completed a qualitative research…

Sowder, Judith T., Ed.; Schappelle, Bonnie P., Ed. – 1989
Research on computational estimation and mental computation has received a considerable amount of attention from mathematics educators during the past decade. These proceedings resulted from a meeting to explore dimensions of number sense and its related fields. The participants came from three groups: mathematics educators actively pursuing…

Ndlovu, Zanele; Brijlall, Deonarain – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2015
This study is part of ongoing research in undergraduate mathematics education. The study was guided by the belief that understanding the mental constructions the pre-service teachers make when learning matrix algebra concepts leads to improved instructional methods. In this preliminary study the data was collected from 85 pre-service teachers…

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.,…

Siegwarth, Nicole; Larkin, Kevin T.; Kemmner, Christine – Psychological Record, 2012
Experimenter effects have long been hypothesized to influence participants' responses to mental stress testing. To explore the influence of experimenter warmth on responses to two mental stress tasks (mental arithmetic, mirror tracing), 32 young women participated in a single 45-min experimental session. Participants were randomized into warm…

McClain, Kay; Cobb, Paul; Gravemeijer, Koeno; Estes, Beth – 1999
This paper describes how one group of students developed personally meaningful ways to reason mathematically within the context of measurement. Episodes taken from a first grade classroom in which a 4-month teaching experiment was conducted are presented. One of the goals of the teaching experiment was to develop instructional sequences designed…

Mathematics Education Dialogues, 1999
This focuses on movements to asses learning what is basic at various levels: movements to align curriculum to standards at all levels, and familial pressures to guarantee that children's mathematics education includes the mathematics of the future. This newsletter provides 15 articles on the above theme: (1) "What's Basic in Math Education: A…
