Kartal, Ozgul; Dunya, Beyza Aksu; Diefes-Dux, Heidi A.; Zawojewski, Judith S. – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016

Critical to many science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career paths is mathematical modeling--specifically, the creation and adaptation of mathematical models to solve problems in complex settings. Conventional standardized measures of mathematics achievement are not structured to directly assess this type of mathematical…

Wade, Carol H.; Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip M.; Hazari, Zahra – American Secondary Education, 2017

Using data from the first National study on high school preparation for college calculus success, the Factors Influencing College Success in Mathematics (FICSMath) project, this article connects student high school instructional experiences to college calculus performance. The findings reported here reveal that students were better prepared for…

Oliveira, Alandeom W.; Meskill, Carla; Judson, Darlene; Gregory, Karen; Rogers, Patterson; Imperial, Christopher J.; Casler-Failing, Shelli – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015

This study explores the "language repair strategies" (aimed at repairing communication problems) of two bilingual speakers during mathematics word problem tutoring sessions. Bilingual repair was shown to gradually shift from a linguistic to an epistemic focus during problem solving (i.e., communication became more conceptually focused…

Sadler, Philip; Sonnert, Gerhard – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018

This study addresses a longstanding question among high school mathematics teachers and college mathematics professors: Which is the best preparation for college calculus-- (a) a high level of mastery of mathematics considered preparatory for calculus (algebra, geometry, precalculus) or (b) taking calculus itself in high school? We used a data set…

Benbow, Camilla Persson – Peabody Journal of Education, 2012

Calls to strengthen education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are underscored by employment trends and the importance of STEM innovation for the economy. The Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth (SMPY) has been tracking over 5,000 talented individuals longitudinally for 40 years, throwing light on critical questions…

Brown, Jennifer L.; Halpin, Glennelle; Halpin, Gerald – Higher Education Studies, 2015

The demand for STEM graduates has increased, but the number of incoming freshmen who declare a STEM major has remained stagnant. High school courses, such as calculus, can open or close the gate for students interested in careers in STEM. The purpose of this study was to determine if high school mathematics preparation was a significant…

Wilmot, Diana Bernbaum; Schoenfeld, Alan; Wilson, Mark; Champney, Danielle; Zahner, William – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2011

Current college admissions tests inadequately predict college success (Geiser & Studley, 2002) and provide insufficient information for students and teachers regarding college readiness at earlier stages of students' academic careers (Olson, 2006). This article reports on the creation and validation of a more informative test rooted in college…

Clarke, David; Breed, Margarita; Fraser, Sherry – Mathematics Educator, 2004

Implementation of a problem-based mathematics curriculum, the "Interactive Mathematics Program" (IMP), at three high schools in California has been associated with more than just differences in student achievement. The outcomes that distinguished students who participated in the IMP program from students who followed a conventional…

Barnett, M.D.; Sonnert, G.; Sadler, P.M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014

Relativizing the popular belief that student effort is the key to success, this article finds that effort in the most advanced mathematics course in US high schools is not consistently associated with college calculus performance. We distinguish two types of student effort: productive and ineffective efforts. Whereas the former carries the…

Beekman, John A.; Ober, David – School Science and Mathematics, 2015

Nine years of results on 4.2 million of Indiana's Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP) mathematics (math) exams (grades 3-10) taken after the implementation of No Child Left Behind have been used to determine gender gaps and their associated trends. Sociocultural factors were investigated by comparing math gender gaps and gap…

Lesik, Sally A.; Leake, Meg – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2013

This article describes how a Brier score analysis can be used as an evaluative tool to estimate the predictive accuracy of a course placement policy that was established based on professional or subjective judgment. The policy being evaluated uses the score received on the mathematics portion of the SAT examination as the primary mechanism to…

Dawkins, Paul Christian; Epperson, James A. Mendoza – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014

This study investigates interactions between calculus learning and problem-solving in the context of two first-semester undergraduate calculus courses in the USA. We assessed students' problem-solving abilities in a common US calculus course design that included traditional lecture and assessment with problem-solving-oriented labs. We investigate…

Bacon, Donald R.; Hartley, Steven W. – Marketing Education Review, 2015

Many educators and researchers have suggested that some students learn more effectively with visual stimuli (e.g., pictures, graphs), whereas others learn more effectively with verbal information (e.g., text) (Felder & Brent, 2005). In two studies, the present research seeks to improve popular self-reported (indirect) learning style measures…

Adams, Tempestt; Robinson, Derrick; Covington, Azure; Talley-Matthews, Sheikia – Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, 2017

The purpose of this article is to assess areas of opportunity and access for students of color to participate in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine pipeline (STEMM). Using a Critical Race Theory framework, this position paper reviews occupational outcomes and stratification in STEMM fields, examines the pertinence of…

Huhn, Craig – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

When the author was first charged with getting a group of students to understand the correlation coefficient, he did not anticipate the topic would challenge his own understanding, let alone cause him to eventually question the very nature of mathematics itself. On the surface, the idea seemed straightforward, one that millions of students across…
