Rosa, Mauricio; Lerman, Stephen – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2011
This paper is drawn from a doctoral thesis (Rosa, 2008) that examines the relations established between the construction of online identities and the teaching and learning of the definite integral concept in an online learning course. The role-playing game (RPG) is played out through chat and calls for the creation of characters (online…

Roschelle, J.; Tatar, D.; Shechtman, N.; Knudsen, J. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2008
One of the great strengths of Jim Kaput's research program was his relentless drive towards scaling up his innovative approach to teaching the mathematics of change and variation. The SimCalc mission, "democratizing access to the mathematics of change," was enacted by deliberate efforts to reach an increasing number of teachers and students each…

Hoyles, Celia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985
Implications of using pupil-to-pupil discussion with mathematics classrooms are discussed, with different ways in which such discussion might promote mathematical understanding. A framework for instruction includes the learning of the computer language Logo. (MNS)

Streefland, Leen – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1984
Ideas on a teaching-learning theory of ratio are presented. Views of children and of members of an international panel are presented, and five questions and their responses are compared with real classroom experience. (MNS)

Hawkins, Anne S.; Kapadia, Ramesh – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1984
Identifies key questions concerning children's intuitions and conceptions of probabilistic notions. Research on the theoretical framework for probability studies, misconceptions and strategies, and pupil attainment is reviewed, and the methodology is evaluated. Finally, implications for classroom practice are discussed. (MNS)

Zehavi, Nurit; And Others – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985
A model of qualities of mathematical activity was developed within a framework of learning goals. A clinical application of the model is described, in which ninth-grade students were given assignment projects. A hierarchy of effective guidance was established, permitting diagnostic evaluation and progressive development of mathematical activity.…

Lemoyne, G.; Tremblay, C. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1986
This study involved 48 students ages 9 to 12. The 29 experimental group students, divided into small groups, performed learning exercises designed to improve skills in analyzing and processing expressions frequently included in addition and multiplication problems. The exercises helped significantly to improve problem-solving performance. (MNS)

Nesher, Pearla; Peled, Irit – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1986
The process of transition from a novice's state to that of an expert, in the domain of decimals, is described in terms of explicit, intermediate, and transitional rules which are consistent yet erroneous. Data from students in grades 6-9 are included. (MNS)

Denvir, B.; Brown, M. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1986
Three studies on the development of number concepts (counting, addition, subtraction, and place value) in seven- to nine-year-olds considered low attainers in mathematics were conducted. The search for a descriptive framework, the development of a diagnostic assessment instrument, and a longitudinal study are reported. (MNS)

Fidelman, Uri – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985
Varying approaches to mathematics were raised in a Philosophy of Mathematics course. Students were asked which foundational schools they preferred and these preferences were compared with scores on hemispheric tests. The results indicate that preferences may be related to the brain's hemispheres. (MNS)

Hunting, Robert P. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1986
The behavior of one child as she constructed knowledge about fractions over a nine-month period is presented. The intent is to explain behavioral patterns for which certain mental processes, called schemes, seem responsible. (MNS)

Markovits, Henry – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1986
College students were given two paper-and-pencil conditional reasoning tests, one week apart, in varying order. The three problems on each test were presented either verbally or with line drawings as concrete referents. Performance was significantly poorer on the problems with drawings. (MNS)
