Steinbring, Heinz – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1991

An attempt is made to elaborate on the connections and differences between the objective and subjective elements of mathematical knowledge using case study analysis relative to how an epistemological perspective about probability and randomness impacts upon a short classroom teaching episode. (19 references) (Author/JJK)

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)

Fennema, Elizabeth; Peterson, Penelope L. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985

Discusses a model which provides a partial explanation of why females are not achieving equity in mathematics education. The model consists of four phases and explores mediating factors of autonomous learning behaviors which exist between socialization influences and learning. (JN)

Fischbein, Efraim; And Others – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1991

To investigate the origins and nature of intuitive obstacles affecting the learning of elementary probability theory, 618 Italian elementary and middle school students were interviewed about their methods of solution for several problems dealing with probability. The discussion focuses on four varieties of obstacles to learning prevalent within…

Streefland, Leen – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985

Features and tools to outline and shape the long-term learning process for ratio are presented, with examples. Ratio-anticipating activity and creating visual models and schemes are stressed, with the basis for a theory of teaching and learning ratio presented. (MNS)

Sfard, Anna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1991

This paper presents a theoretical framework for investigating the role of algorithms in mathematical thinking using a combined ontological-psychological outlook. The intent is to demonstrate that the processes of learning and of problem solving incorporate an elaborate interplay between operational and structural conceptualizations of the same…

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)
