Nezihe Korkmaz Guler; Kamuran Tarim – Pedagogical Research, 2024
The purpose of this study is to examine how the categorization skills of the 6th grade students in fractions are distributed and to determine the classification errors made by the students, along with the procedural errors of the students in fractions. The descriptive survey model, one of the quantitative research methods, was used in the study.…

Anne Tossavainen; Ola Helenius – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2024
Fractions are core content of elementary school mathematics, and conceptual knowledge of fractions is essential when developing a comprehensive understanding of fractions. Previous research, however, has indicated limitations in student teachers' fraction knowledge. This study investigated 57 Swedish elementary school student teachers' conceptions…

Giacomone, Belén; Godino, Juan D.; Blanco, Teresa F.; Wilhelmi, Miguel R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2023
Diagrams and in general the use of visualization and manipulative material play an important role in mathematics teaching and learning processes. Although several authors warn that mathematics objects should be distinguished from their possible material representations, the relations between these objects are still conflictive both from an…

Hurst, Michelle A.; Boyer, Ty W.; Cordes, Sara – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2023
Although difficulties processing both symbolic and nonsymbolic proportion compared with absolute number are well established, the mechanisms involved remain unclear. We investigate four potential explanations to account for better number processing in adulthood: (a) number is more salient than proportion, (b) number is encoded more automatically…

Grewall, Tejvir Kaur – ProQuest LLC, 2023
The purpose of this research was to investigate students' mathematical understandings of fraction division with an ethnomathematics/STEM framework. A small group teaching study (Cobb et al., 2003) was conducted using design research methodology to examine how students interacted with the curriculum. The researcher served as interventionist and…

Schenck, Kelsey E. – ProQuest LLC, 2023
Spatial ability is a multifaceted construct with demonstrated ties to success in mathematics and gesture production. Recent empirical work has also begun investigating whether targeted interventions for spatial ability can transfer to mathematics but are often limited to specific populations and specific math outcomes. Spatial anxiety has been…

John Ezaki; Jingxian Li; Yasemin Copur-Gencturk – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2024
Teachers' knowledge of the subject matter is considered an important component of their expertise in teaching mathematics. Yet how teachers' understanding of one content area is related to other content areas has not been investigated in depth. We explored this question by investigating teachers' knowledge of two theoretically related areas: (1)…

Jessica Rodrigues; Shannon Locke; Emily L. Singell; Lindsey G. Mirielli – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
The number line is a powerful tool for supporting students' understanding of fraction magnitude. Fractions are a critical component of mathematics instruction in the elementary and intermediate grades. More specifically, understanding fraction magnitude is central to mathematical development. Yet, fractions are challenging for many students,…

R. C. Harwood – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2024
After waiting in a long line for your favourite cup of coffee, you finally sit down with your mug and find that the coffee is still scalding hot! How long do you need to wait before you can enjoy it? Once it cools enough, how much time do you have to enjoy it? Are there ways to speed up the process? These questions motivate the presented modelling…

Amanda Provost; Nicole Panorkou – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2024
Recent solar eclipses provide relevant real-world contexts for learning about the scientific phenomena of the lunar phases. News coverage of the phenomenon may have raised questions such as, "Why does the Moon look different at different times, and sometimes as if it is not there?," and "What patterns can be found in the lunar…

Kayla Lock – ProQuest LLC, 2023
The ideas of measurement and measurement comparisons (e.g., fractions, ratios, quotients) are introduced to students in elementary school. However, studies report that students of all ages have difficulty comparing two quantities in terms of their relative size. Students often understand fractions such as 3/7 as part-whole relationships or…

Parnika Bhatia; Jessica Léone; Marie-Line Gardes; Jérôme Prado – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2024
Fractions are challenging for both typically achieving children and adults. Although some prior research has focused on fraction difficulties of children with mathematics difficulties (MD), persistent difficulties encountered by adults with MD remain unknown. It is possible that these adults may be able to compensate for some deficits. In this…

Ibrahim Burak Ölmez; Andrew Izsák – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2024
In prior work, we fit the mixture Rasch model to item responses from a fractions survey administered to a nationwide sample of middle grades mathematics teachers in the United States. The mixture Rasch model located teachers on a continuous, unidimensional scale and fit best with 3 latent classes. We used item response data to generate initial…

Hilma Halme; Jo Van Hoof; Minna Hannula-Sormunen; Jake McMullen – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2024
Background: Research has shown that mathematics anxiety negatively correlates with primary school mathematics performance, including fraction knowledge. However, recently no significant correlation was found between fraction arithmetic performance and state anxiety measured after the fraction task. One possible explanation is the natural number…
