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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Cheng, Yi-Ling; Mix, Kelly S. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2014

We tested whether mental rotation training improved math performance in 6- to 8-year-olds. Children were pretested on a range of number and math skills. Then one group received a single session of mental rotation training using an object completion task that had previously improved spatial ability in children this age (Ehrlich, Levine, &…
