Hennessey, Maeghan N.; Higley, Kelli; Chesnut, Steven R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2012
Mathematics teachers face a myriad of instructional obstacles. Since the early 1990s, mathematics education researchers have proposed the use of constructivist practices to counteract these ever-prevalent obstacles. While we do give credit to the choices of instructional activities the constructivist paradigm promotes, there are problems with its…

Cipriani, Phyllis J. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
A constructivist approach for teaching and learning mathematics was the foundation for a longitudinal study at Rutgers University in 1987 (Maher, 2011). One of the objectives of the longitudinal study was to provide an environment where students solve problems in collaborative groups (Maher, 2011). Videos from the longitudinal study are stored in…

Bargagliotti, Anna; Botelho, Fernanda; Gleason, Jim; Haddock, John; Windsor, Alistair – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2012
Most students in U.S. universities are required to take a collection of core courses regardless of their degree or major. These courses are known as "general education" courses. The general education requirements typically include at least one mathematics course. Unfortunately each year hundreds of thousands of students in the US do not…

Long, Caroline; Dunne, Tim – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2014
In this article we explore approaches to curriculum in the primary school in order to map and manage the omissions implicit in the current unfolding of the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement for mathematics. The focus of school-based research has been on curriculum coverage and cognitive depth. To address the challenges of teaching…

Uzomah, Stephanie Lynn – ProQuest LLC, 2012
In 2007, only 32% of Georgia's fourth grade students were considered at or above the proficient level in mathematics. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of the TouchMath program at one elementary school. The TouchMath program was developed based on the constructivist learning theory and includes aspects of theories from…

Sarangi, Dibakar; Panda, Smita Rani – Educational Research and Reviews, 2013
A wide spectrum of research literature pointed out socio-cultural deprivation as the dominant explanation for student survival and success in schools. This paper, contending socio-cultural deprivation as inadequate explanation for dropout and detention at secondary level, probed into the role of pupils' foundation knowledge in their survival and…

Honeycutt, Robin A. – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Math instruction has undergone a tremendous amount of change since the late 1950s. "New math" of the 1960s, the standards movement, back to the basics in the early 90s, and now the common core standards have all had an impact on how mathematics is taught. This study examined the Math Expressions program, a conceptually based program…

Greer, Claire W.; Erickson, Karen A. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
Counting is an important functional skill that is embedded throughout people's daily lives, which can result in numerous meaningful opportunities through which students can learn. Counting, especially early counting, provides a foundation for the development of later mathematics understanding and is highly predictive of later mathematics…

Mhlolo, Michael Kainose; Schafer, Marc – South African Journal of Education, 2013
This article reports on regularities observed in learners' preconceptions of reflective symmetry. Literature suggests that the very existence of such regularities indicates a gap between what learners know and what they need to know. Such a gap inhibits further understanding and application, and hence needed to be investigated. A total of 235…
