Agustyaningrum, Nina; Sari, Riska Novia; Abadi, Agus Maman; Mahmudi, Ali – International Journal of Instruction, 2021
This study aims to find out the dominant factors that cause students' difficulties in learning abstract algebra. The factors investigated in this study focused on attitude, motivation, prior knowledge, lecturer performance, learning methods, as well as teaching materials. This study is a descriptive research using a survey method. We involved 30…

Shockey, Tod; Czerniak, Charlene; Ponnaiyan, Thehazhnan; Javaid, Ahmad; Oluoch, Jared – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2022
We present a case of one teacher's engagement in project-based learning for algebra I students. This teacher was a member of a cohort of mathematics teachers and career technical educators who participated in a two-week intensive summer institute investigating autonomous vehicles. During the academic year, the follow up support for these educators…

These are the appendixes for the report, "What Grade 7 Foundational Knowledge and Skills Are Associated with Missouri Students' Algebra I Achievement in Grade 8?" To increase opportunities for students to take more advanced math courses in high school, many school districts enroll grade 8 students in Algebra I, a gateway course for…

Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne; Hogstad, Ninni Marie; Monaghan, John – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
This paper reports on themes that arose in an investigation of university lecturers' views on the teaching of linear algebra. This focus on themes was the initial part of a study concentrating on four areas: What is important to teach in a first course in linear algebra? Are there teaching methods which are particularly suited for such a course?…

Galanti, Terrie M.; Frank, Toya Jones; Baker, Courtney K. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2021
An increasing number of students are "hyper-accelerating" their study of formal Algebra I to Grade 7 or earlier to maintain a competitive edge in the race to calculus. However, there is a lack of evidence that these students construct the conceptual foundations necessary for persistence in advanced mathematics. This paper maps the drive…

Morton, Karisma; Riegle-Crumb, Catherine – Educational Researcher, 2020
This brief utilizes data from the U.S. Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study of 2011 (TIMSS) to investigate the extent to which teacher reports of content coverage in eighth grade algebra classes vary according to school racial/ethnic composition. The analytic sample is comprised of eighth grade algebra classrooms in 111 schools…

Skuratowicz, Eva; Ota St. Clair, Serena; Pritzlaff, Rikki; Anderson, Cassandra; Menefee, Michael; Miller-Loessi, Karen – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2020
This paper compares the effectiveness of contextualized developmental intermediate algebra to the more traditional developmental intermediate algebra approach, for students at two community college campuses located in two counties in the Pacific Northwest. We assessed four student outcome measures of effectiveness: likelihood of passing algebra,…

Lau, Wilfred W. F. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
This study examined changes in beliefs and confidence of 24 pre-service mathematics teachers after they participated in professional learning in an algebra pedagogy course, which addressed an under-researched area about their domain-specific beliefs in teaching algebra. A single-group pretest-posttest design was adopted. Quantitative data were…

Cirino, Paul T.; Tolar, Tammy D.; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Algebra I is a crucial course for middle and high school students for successful STEM-related coursework. A key issue is whether students should take Algebra I in Grade 8 versus Grade 9. Large-scale policy studies show conflicting results, and there are few (particularly longitudinal) individual difference studies. In the study, 53 students were…

McAllister, Deborah A.; Glidden, Jared L.; Moyer, Peggy S.; Wilkes, Lisa S. – Online Submission, 2021
This program focused on improving mathematics content and pedagogy for Algebra I teachers, including regular classroom teachers and exceptional education teachers, as they implemented the Tennessee Mathematics Standards. Concentrating work on a few topics allowed for tightening breadth while increasing depth of content, as well as devoting study…

McEachin, Andrew; Domina, Thurston; Penner, Andrew – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2020
How should schools assign students to more rigorous math courses so as best to help their academic outcomes? We identify several hundred California middle schools that used 7th-grade test scores to place students into 8th-grade algebra courses and use a regression discontinuity design to estimate average impacts and heterogeneity across schools.…

Hornburg, Caroline Byrd; Devlin, Brianna L.; McNeil, Nicole M. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2022
Does the timing of children's formal understanding of mathematical equivalence matter for algebra readiness? A change-resistance account (McNeil & Alibali, 2005) predicts that it is beneficial for children to construct a formal understanding of mathematical equivalence in the early grades before overly narrow operational patterns become…

Baumgartner, Wendy Lyn; Spangenberg, Erica Dorethea; Lautenbach, Geoffrey Vaughan – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
South African Mathematical Literacy (ML) learners are unlikely to have mastered the mathematical skills essential for undergraduate degree studies in Business Science and are most likely to commence tertiary studies in a foundation programme (FP). One such FP at one private higher education institution included an algebra course and provided an…

Bobak, Regina A. – Research & Teaching in Developmental Education, 2019
This study examined the implication of the Algebra Connection Essay in a developmental algebra course. Undergraduate students (n=18) in four Intermediate Algebra courses were administered a pre-attitudinal survey prior to receiving information on the essay about their chosen or desired program of study. After submitting the essay, the students…
