Hirza, Bonita; Kusumah, Yaya S.; Darhim; Zulkardi – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2014
The intention of the present study was to see the improvement of students' intuitive skills. This improvement was seen by comparing the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME)-based instruction with the conventional mathematics instruction. The subject of this study was 164 fifth graders of elementary school in Palembang. The design of this study…

Rianasari, Veronika Fitri; Budayasa, I Ketut; Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
Many researches revealed that pupils often find difficulties to understand percentage although they are able to recite percent as per hundred and carry out the computations correctly. This might happen due to the way in which the learning percentage has been taught that tends to focus on procedures and recall instead of getting a real…

Khairunnisak, Cut; Maghfirotun, Siti; Juniati, Amin Dwi; de Haan, Dede – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
The meaning of fractions with integer multiplication is something that is difficult to understand by students. They tend to think that the product it produces a larger number, while the multiplication of fractions with integers, the result can be any number larger or smaller. This study is a research design that aims to develop a local…

Revina, Shintia; Zulkardi; Darmawijoyo; van Galen, Frans – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
Many prior researches found that most of students in grade five tended to have difficulty in fully grasping the concept of volume measurement because they have to build their competence in spatial structuring. The unit of volume "packing" measurement must be integrated and coordinated in three-dimension. On the other hand, it is revealed…

Shin, Mikyung; Bryant, Diane Pedrotty – Remedial and Special Education, 2015
This study synthesized intervention studies focusing on instruction to improve fraction skills. Seventeen studies met the inclusion criteria: being published in English-language peer-reviewed journals or dissertations between 1975 and 2014, and targeting 3rd- through 12th-grade students struggling to learn mathematics. From the "Common Core…

Adams, Anne E.; Karunakaran, Monica Smith; Klosterman, Peter; Knott, Libby; Ely, Rob – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
This study examined discussions centered on precise mathematical language use in two fifth grade classrooms. Drawing on episodes from lessons in which teachers focused on encouraging mathematics reasoning, our analysis examines the relationship between precise language use and mathematical justifying. We present three classroom episodes that…

MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
International research suggests that early mathematical competences predicts later mathematical outcomes. In this paper, we build on our previous study of young children's mathematical competencies (MacDonald & Carmichael, 2015) to explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and…

Hannula-Sormunen, Minna M.; Lehtinen, Erno; Räsänen, Pekka – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2015
This seven-year longitudinal study examined how children's spontaneous focusing on numerosity (SFON), subitizing based enumeration, and counting skills assessed at five or six years predict their school mathematics achievement at 12 years. The participants were 36 Finnish children without diagnosed neurological disorders. The results, based on…

Chang, Yu-Liang – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of fifth-grade mathematics teachers' efficacy (MTE) on their students' mathematics self-efficacy (SMSE) and mathematical achievement (SMA) in classrooms. Two mathematics efficacy instruments were administered to 58 classes (i.e. 58 teachers and 1244 fifth-graders respectively) to gather data…

Pape, Stephen J.; Prosser, Sherri K.; Griffin, Cynthia C.; Dana, Nancy Fichtman; Algina, James; Bae, Jungah – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2015
This study sought to identify components of an asynchronous online teacher professional development program, "Prime Online," that potentially affected participants' mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). Twenty-three third- through fifth-grade general education and special education teachers completed a yearlong online teacher…

Karagiannakis, Giannis N.; Baccaglini-Frank, Anna E.; Roussos, Petros – Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, 2016
Through a review of the literature on mathematical learning disabilities (MLD) and low achievement in mathematics (LA) we have proposed a model classifying mathematical skills involved in learning mathematics into four domains (Core number, Memory, Reasoning, and Visual-spatial). In this paper we present a new experimental computer-based battery…
