Flores, Alfinio; Phelps, Christine M.; Jansen, Amanda – PRIMUS, 2017

We present a first-hand, longer-term account of one student's (Christine's) experiences in and after a mathematics inquiry course. In this course, students actively posed problems, conducted their own mathematical explorations, and wrote journal entries about their experiences. During the course, Christine found that inquiry helped her develop…

Saleh, Muhamad; Prahmana, Rully Charitas Indra; Isa, Muhammad; Murni – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

By taking the role as a mentor and a facilitator, a teacher in the 4th grade of elementary school needs to look at the condition of the students in the concrete thinking stage. Learning process needs to be adjusted such that the abstract objects in mathematics can be represented through concrete objects as a bridge to enter the knowledge that the…

Liggett, Robert Scott – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2017

Today's society places a lot of pressure on schools, teachers, and students to improve test scores. This paper discusses the possibility of using mathematical manipulatives to improve student test scores and students' attitudes towards mathematics. Forty-three Grade 2 students with age ranges between six and eight from a rural town in Saskatchewan…
