Blakey, Emma; Matthews, Danielle; Cragg, Lucy; Buck, Jessica; Cameron, David; Higgins, Ben; Pepper, Lisa; Ridley, Ellen; Sullivan, Emma; Carroll, Daniel J. – Child Development, 2020
The socioeconomic attainment gap in mathematics starts early and increases over time. This study aimed to examine why this gap exists. Four-year-olds from diverse backgrounds were randomly allocated to a brief intervention designed to improve executive functions (N = 87) or to an active control group (N = 88). The study was preregistered and…

Darmadi – Journal of Research and Advances in Mathematics Education, 2018
Students of mathematics teacher candidates are required to have good math and communication skills. Therefore, students of mathematics teacher candidates need to have good imagery modalities like the rational-irrational function graph. To get the imaginary student of mathematics teacher candidate in describing the rational-irrational function…

Kollosche, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
In mathematics education, researchers have proposed a wide range of improvements of teaching practice in school, but only a few of these proposals have sustainably changed mathematics education in the desired form. This article takes off with the assumption that this gap between ideals and practice can be understood and challenged through a better…

Mlotshwa, Nicholas; Tunjera, Nyarai; Chigona, Agnes – South African Journal of Education, 2020
Many South African educational institutions are adopting learning management systems (LMS) into their daily teaching and learning practice. The Western Cape Education Department piloted Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (Moodle), an LMS for improving teaching and learning. The objective of the research reported on here was to…

Wilkey, Eric D.; Pollack, Courtney; Price, Gavin R. – Child Development, 2020
Deficits in numerical magnitude perception characterize the mathematics learning disability developmental dyscalculia (DD), but recent studies suggest the relation stems from inhibitory control demands from incongruent visual cues in the nonsymbolic number comparison task. This study investigated the relation among magnitude perception during…

Gök, Mustafa; Erdogan, Abdulkadir; Erdogan, Emel Özdemir – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
In the historical process, scientific knowledge is constantly changing and developing. Concepts in curricula and textbooks are also affected by these changes and developments. The function concept is a typical example of this situation. The concept of function gained different meanings in different historical contexts although no clear information…

Schmerold, Katrina Lea – ProQuest LLC, 2015
Patterning, or the ability to understand patterns, is a skill commonly taught to young children as part of school mathematics curricula. While a number of studies have demonstrated that patterning is beneficial for young children acquiring mathematical skills, little research exists that examines the cognitive components of the skill. It seems…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Layzer, Carolyn; Unlu, Fatih; Fesler, Lily – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Early education is replete with debates about "academic" versus "play" approaches. We evaluated 2 interventions, the "Building Blocks" (BB) mathematics curriculum and the BB synthesized with scaffolding of play to promote executive function (BBSEF), compared to a business-as-usual (BAU) control using a 3-armed cluster…

Arikan, Elif Esra; Unal, Hasan – Educational Research and Reviews, 2015
The aim of this study is to investigate the metaphors images of gifted students about mathematics. The sample of the study consists of 82 gifted students, which are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 graders, from Istanbul. Data were collected by asking students to complete the sentence: "Mathematics is as …, because…". In the study content analysis was…

Borke, Mikael – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2021
An important part of the mathematics syllabuses at the secondary school level in most countries is the concept of function. However, secondary school students often experience difficulties with this concept. These difficulties are well-known in the research literature. The study applies the mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) framework,…

Esplin, Jacob A.; Berghout Austin, Ann M.; Blevins-Knabe, Belinda; Neilson, Brionne G.; Corwyn, Robert F. – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 2021
This longitudinal study examined the relationship between executive function (EF) and mathematics with rural and urban preschool children. A panel of direct and indirect EF measures were used to compare how well individual measures, as well as analytic approaches, predicted both numeracy and geometry skill. One hundred eighteen children, ages 39…

Van der Ven, Sanne H. G.; Kroesbergen, Evelyn H.; Boom, Jan; Leseman, Paul P. M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2012
Background: The relationship between executive functions and mathematical skills has been studied extensively, but results are inconclusive, and how this relationship evolves longitudinally is largely unknown. Aim: The aim was to investigate the factor structure of executive functions in inhibition, shifting, and updating; the longitudinal…
