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…

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)

Leder, Gilah C. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1992
This article is concerned with the learning of mathematics before the commencement of formal schooling. Describes the experiences of two students from four main sets of data: formal and informal measures of mathematics achievement, the learning environment in the home, and observations during teacher-led sessions concerned with mathematical…

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)

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)

Lemerise, Tamara; And Others – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1992
Learning environment that facilitated the acquisition and expression of procedural skills in LOGO was set up for children in the 10- to 12-year range. Ten participants were placed in a series of situations that required them to manipulate programing procedures in LOGO. Analysis of children's behavior revealed their competence in manipulating…

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…

Gagatsis, A.; Patronis, T. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1990
Describes the stages of a process of reflective thinking. Investigates how geometrical models can be used in learning and teaching mathematics in connection with the process. Identifies two models for children of age four to eight: constant path in the space of shapes and continuous path of varied polygonal shapes. (Author/YP)

Movshovitz-Hadar, Nitsa; Hadass, Rina – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1990
Reported is a naturalistic study of the role of mathematical paradoxes in the preservice education of high school mathematics teachers. Findings indicate that the model of resolving paradoxes as applied in this study has relevance to such aspects of mathematics education as cognitive conflicts, motivation, misconceptions, and constructive…

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…

Robitaille, David F. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1990
Presented is a comparison of two major surveys of the teaching and learning of mathematics conducted by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement. Surveys indicate that performance levels have declined in computational skills and increased in algebra. (Author/CW)
