Martínez-Zarzuelo, Angélica; Roanes-Lozano, Eugenio; Fernández-Díaz, José – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2016
Sequencing contents is of great importance for instructional design within the teaching planning processes. We believe that it is key for a meaningful learning. Therefore, we propose to formally establish a partial order relation among the contents. We have chosen the binary relation "to be a prerequisite" for that purpose. We have…

Vakil, Sepehr; Ayers, Rick – Race, Ethnicity and Education, 2019
This special issue brings together a mix of early-career, mid, and senior scholars to critically examine current realities of, and boldly imagine future possibilities for, STEM education in the lives of racially minoritized children in the United States. Given the implicit and sometimes explicit aspirations of STEM education to be a counteracting…

Mesiti, Leigh Ann; Parkes, Alana; Paneto, Sunewan C.; Cahill, Clara – Journal of Museum Education, 2019
"Building Computational Thinkers," a three-year research study, explored how educators and designers can most effectively support the development of computational thinking capacity, and how these learning experiences could be customized to meet the needs of different learners. This research study focused on three specific exhibit design…

Stultz, Sherry L. – Journal of Special Education Apprenticeship, 2013
Using computers to teach students is not a new idea. Computers have been utilized for educational purposes for over 80 years. However, the effectiveness of these programs for teaching mathematics to students with specific learning disability is unclear. This study was undertaken to determine if computer-assisted instruction was as effective as…

Tonbuloglu, Betül; Tonbuloglu, Ismail – Informatics in Education, 2019
The purpose of the study is to examine the effect of unplugged coding activities carried out with middle school students on their computational thinking skills. This study employed nested-mixed design, which is a mixed research method; the data were supported by including the qualitative phase into an experimental study. In this frame, a group of…

Arnoux, Pierre; Finkel, Alain – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
The role of mental representations in mathematics and computer science (for teaching or research) is often downplayed or even completely ignored. Using an ongoing work on the subject, we argue for a more systematic study and use of mental representations, to get an intuition of mathematical concepts, and also to understand and build proofs. We…

Kelly, Daniel P.; Rutherford, Teomara – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2017
Khan Academy is a large and popular open educational resource (OER) with little empirical study into its impact on student achievement in mathematics when used in schools. In this study, we examined the use of Khan Academy as a mathematics intervention among seventh grade students over a 4-week period versus a control group. We also compared…

Crawford, Lindy; Higgins, Kristina N.; Huscroft-D'Angelo, Jacqueline N.; Hall, Lindsay – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2016
This study investigated students' use of electronic support tools within a computer-based mathematics program. Electronic support tools are tools, such as hyperlinks or calculators, available within many computer-based instructional programs. A convenience sample of 73 students in grades 4-6 was selected to participate in the study. Students…

Marzocchi, Alison S. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
This article suggests that logic puzzles, such as the well-known Tower of Hanoi puzzle, can be used to introduce computer science concepts to mathematics students of all ages. Mathematics teachers introduce their students to computer science concepts that are enacted spontaneously and subconsciously throughout the solution to the Tower of Hanoi…

Yong, Su-Ting; Gates, Peter; Chan, Andy Tak-Yee – International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, 2018
This article explores how motivation in computer games could be integrated into mathematics education. The scope of the study was confined to four motivation dimensions, namely challenge, control, complexity and collaboration. A phenomenology study was conducted with the purpose to obtain a common understanding of nine teachers and 11 students…

Solano-Flores, Guillermo; Chia, Magda; Kachchaf, Rachel – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2019
This paper is concerned with fair and valid testing. It reports on a long-term project aimed at creating visual accessibility resources in mathematics computer-administered test items in a large-scale assessment system. We discuss our experience designing and developing pop-up illustration glossaries (IGs) for second language learners (SLLs) --…

Foster, Matthew E.; Anthony, Jason L.; Clements, Doug H.; Sarama, Julie; Williams, Jeffrey M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
This study evaluated the effects of a mathematics software program, the Building Blocks software suite, on young children's mathematics performance. Participants included 247 Kindergartners from 37 classrooms in 9 schools located in low-income communities. Children within classrooms were randomly assigned to receive 21 weeks of computer-assisted…
