Williams, Steven R.; Leatham, Keith R. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
We present the results of 2 studies, a citation-based study and an opinion-based study, that ranked the relative quality of 20 English-language journals that exclusively or extensively publish mathematics education research. We further disaggregate the opinion-based data to provide insights into variations in judgment of journal quality based on…

Leyva, Luis A. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
Gender research in mathematics education has experienced methodological and theoretical shifts over the past 45 years. Although achievement studies have used assessment tools to explore and subsequently challenge the assumption of male superiority on mathematics assessments, research on participation has unpacked these studies' sex-based…

Norton, Anderson; D'Ambrosio, Beatriz S. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2008
The goal of this article is to examine students' mathematical development that occurs as a teacher works within each of 2 zones of learning: students' zones of proximal development (ZPD) and students' zones of potential construction (ZPC). ZPD, proposed by Vygotsky, is grounded in a social constructivist perspective on learning, whereas ZPC,…

Bray, Wendy S. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2011
This collective case study examines the influence of 4 third-grade teachers' beliefs and knowledge on their error-handling practices during class discussion of mathematics. Study findings suggest that, although teachers' ways of handling student errors during class discussion of mathematics are clearly linked to both teacher beliefs and teacher…

Xin, Yan Ping – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2008
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a schema-based instructional strategy that emphasizes prealgebraic conceptualization of multiplicative relations on solving arithmetic word problems with elementary students with learning disabilities or problems (LP). Introducing symbolic representation and algebraic thinking in earlier…

Truxaw, Mary P.; DeFranco, Thomas C. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2008
This article reports on models of teaching that developed as outgrowths of a study of middle-grades mathematics classes. Three specific cases are highlighted that represent deductive (associated with univocal), inductive (associated with dialogic), and mixed (a hybrid of deductive and inductive) models of teaching. Teaching practices associated…

Hackett, Gail; Betz, Nancy E. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989
This study investigated the relationship between mathematical performance and mathematics self-efficacy, attitudes toward mathematics, and the choice of mathematics-related majors by college women and men. Performance and self-efficacy correlate positively with attitudes, masculine sex-role orientation, and a mathematics-related major. (Author/DC)

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989
Explores the relationship between high school students' beliefs about mathematics and their mathematical performance. Reports: (1) the students' attributions of success or failure; (2) perceptions of mathematics; (3) comparative views of school mathematics, English and social studies; (4) motivation; and (5) personal performance. A questionnaire…

Lappan, Glenda – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1999
Presents remarks adapted from the Presidential address from the 1999 annual meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). Argues that the mathematics classroom teacher must create an environment that supports students' interests and mathematics growth at many different levels and ways in which to achieve this. Considers…

Nachlieli, Talli; Herbst, Patricio – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2009
This article reports on an investigation of how teachers of geometry perceived an episode of instruction presented to them as a case of engaging students in proving. Confirming what was hypothesized, participants found it remarkable that a teacher would allow a student to make an assumption while proving. But they perceived this episode in various…

Stiff, Lee V. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989
The effects of teaching strategy, relevant knowledge, and strategy length on high school students' mathematical learning ability were studied. Performance was found to increase as levels of relevant knowledge increased. Characterization strategies were found to be more effective than exemplification strategies for students with high relevant…

Hembree, Ray – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1990
Integrates research on mathematics anxiety, regarding its nature, effects, and relief by using meta-analysis. Concludes that mathematics anxiety depresses performance and that mathematics and test anxieties both relate to general anxiety. Discusses the sex difference of the anxiety and its effects on achievement. (Author/YP)

Ethington, Corinna A.; Wolfle, Lee M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1984
Reanalysis of data for 13,200 twelfth-grade students indicated that sex has a significant effect on mathematics achievement even after controlling for sex differences in spatial abilities and background and interest in mathematics. Women tend to have less spatial visualization ability, and its effects on mathematics achievement are greater for…
