Worthington, Maulfry; van Oers, Bert – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2016
The aim of this study is to uncover the emergence of cultural mathematical understandings and communications in young children's spontaneous pretend play. It is based on Vygotskian cultural-historical perspectives and social-semiotic theory, informed by research into "funds of knowledge" and considers how children's informal knowledge of…

Siaw, Emmerline Shelda; Shim, George Tan Geok; Azizan, Farah Liyana; Shaipullah, Norhunaini Mohd – Journal of Education and Learning, 2021
For many students, mathematics is regarded as a challenging subject to learn and master in class. One of the significant factors contributing to the students' difficulties in learning mathematics is caused by a phenomenon called mathematics anxiety. Mathematics anxiety is a feeling of unease and anxiety toward mathematics and it can be different…

Haara, Frode Olav – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Emphasis on the development of the inner qualities thought to make up pedagogical entrepreneurship and use of such entrepreneurship as a strategy in mathematics teaching and learning could be expected to strengthen students' development of mathematical literacy. This is because problem solving, local cultures and resources, authenticity and action…

Jameson, Molly M. – Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, 2020
Adult learners and female students report higher levels of mathematics anxiety than their peers, suggesting that female adult learners may be particularly vulnerable. This study used Bandura's triarchic reciprocal causality model as a foundation and interviewed five highly mathematics anxious female adult learners to understand their perceptions…

Long, Caroline; Wendt, Heike – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
The chain of progression from teacher education to qualification to classroom instruction and student engagement, and then to learning and achievement, is not as straightforward as often presented. Societal, political and economic pressures create either a positive climate or a stressful one for both teachers and students. Nevertheless it is safe…

Pepin, Birgit; Choppin, Jeffrey; Ruthven, Kenneth; Sinclair, Nathalie – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
In this conceptual review paper we draw on recent literature with respect to digital curriculum resources (DCR); we briefly outline and explain selected theoretical frames; and we discuss issues related to the design, and the use (by teachers and students) of digital curricula and e-textbooks in mathematics education. The results of our review…

Stemn, Blidi S. – Childhood Education, 2017
In some African cultures, the concept of division does not necessarily mean sharing money or an item equally. How an item is shared might depend on the ages of the individuals involved. This article describes the use of the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) approach to teach division word problems involving money in a 3rd-grade class in…

Rihák, Jirí – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2015
In this work we introduce the system for adaptive practice of foundations of mathematics. Adaptivity of the system is primarily provided by selection of suitable tasks, which uses information from a domain model and a student model. The domain model does not use prerequisites but works with splitting skills to more concrete sub-skills. The student…

le Roux, Kate; Adler, Jill – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
Mathematical problems that make links to the everyday and to disciplines other than mathematics--variously referred to as practical, realistic, real-world or applied problems in the literature--feature in school and undergraduate mathematics reforms aimed at increasing mathematics participation in contexts of inequity and diversity. In this…

Flores, Margaret M.; Moore, Alexcia J.; Meyer, Jill M. – Psychology in the Schools, 2020
Elementary standards include multiplication of single-digit numbers and students advance to solve complex problems and demonstrate procedural fluency in algorithms. The ability to illustrate procedural fluency in algorithms is dependent on the development of understanding and reasoning in multiplication. Development of multiplicative reasoning…

Gifford, Sue – Research in Mathematics Education, 2014
This article sets out to evaluate the English Early Years Foundation Stage Goal for Numbers, in relation to research evidence. The Goal, which sets out to provide "a good foundation in mathematics", has greater breadth of content and higher levels of difficulty than previous versions. Research suggests that the additional expectations…

Pollitt, Rachel; Cohrssen, Caroline; Seah, Wee Tiong – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Children are innately mathematical and explore mathematical concepts through play. However, educator beliefs about mathematics can impact the inclusion of mathematics in early childhood education (ECE). Recent research has suggested that spatial reasoning is a key concept which forms the foundations of mathematics learning. The theoretical…

Simpson, Amber – Studying Teacher Education, 2019
This research utilized self-study methodology to examine my experience as a novice elementary mathematics teacher educator whose foundation was a high school mathematics teacher and graduate training in secondary mathematics education. By analyzing video data of the weekly mathematics methods course, I relived moments in which I masked my…

Bottia, Martha Cecilia; Moller, Stephanie; Mickelson, Roslyn Arlin; Stearns, Elizabeth – Elementary School Journal, 2014
Analyzing Early Childhood Longitudinal Survey--Kindergarten (ECLS-K) data, we examine how exposure to instructional practices influences math test scores at the end of kindergarten for children from different racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, and for children with different levels of math skills at kindergarten entry. We also analyze…

Roberts, Nicky; Venkat, Hamsa – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2016
In this article, Mason's 'discipline of noticing' is used to theorise a reflective process for changing mathematics teaching in a challenging context. The methodological approach was guided by critical reflective processes that produced, firstly, a descriptive 'account-of' an unsuccessful mathematics lesson, followed by layers of analyses drawing…
