Novita, Rita; Zulkardi; Hartono, Yusuf – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2012
Problem solving plays an important role in mathematics and should have a prominent role in the mathematics education. The term "problem solving" refers to mathematics tasks that have the potential to provide intellectual challenges for enhancing students' mathematical understanding and development. In addition, the contextual problem…

MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
International research suggests that early mathematical competence predicts later mathematical achievement. In this article, we explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and later results on Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 "National Assessment Program -- Literacy and Numeracy" (NAPLAN)…

Krause, Christina M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
This Brief Report addresses the fundamental role that sign language plays in the mathematics classroom of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students. Selected findings are gathered from an ongoing study of signs and gestures used by DHH students and their teachers when encountering and communicating mathematical ideas at a German special-needs school…

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…

Siemon, Dianne; Day, Lorraine; Stephens, Max; Horne, Marj; Callingham, Rosemary; Watson, Jane; Seah, Rebecca – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics calls for the concurrent development of mathematical skills and mathematical reasoning. What are the big ideas of mathematical reasoning and is it possible to map their learning trajectories? Using rich assessment tasks designed for middle-years students of mathematics, this symposium reports on the…

Hunter, Jodie; Jones, Ian – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
We administered specially-designed, free-response mathematics tasks to primary students (N = 583, ages five to 12 years old). Our focus was on whether (i) the children's responses could be reliably assessed, and (ii) the responses could provide insights into children's mathematical thinking. We used a contemporary comparative judgement technique,…

Bossé, Michael J.; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Lynch-Davis, Kathleen; Preston, Ron; Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2018
This study applies the Mathematics Acquisition Framework (MAF) (Bossé, Ringler, Bayaga, Fountain, & Young, 2018) to investigate fifth- through seventh-grade students' comprehension of fractions and decimals and examines how students build understanding of mathematical principles and concepts regarding fractions and decimals. Based on case…

Buchori, Achmad; Cintang, Nyai – International Journal of Evaluation and Research in Education, 2018
The element of creativity in learning mathematics in elementary school is lack of attention. Whereas, in solving the mathematic problem, creative thinking and ideas are needed in formulating and solving mathematical models of mathematic problems. Creative thoughts and ideas will emerge and develop if the process of learning mathematics in the…

Eren, Mehmet; Bulut, Mehmet; Bulut, Neslihan – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2015
The present study aimed to investigate how history of mathematics was integrated to some mathematics textbooks in Turkey. On this account, four different textbooks with different grade levels were chosen. In total, 42 cases were detected and studied by three researchers. Results indicated that the usage of history of mathematics was materialized…

Glasnovic Gracin, Dubravka – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Mathematics textbooks play a very important role in mathematics education and textbook tasks are used by students for practice to a large extent. Since the nature of the tasks may influence the way students think it is important that the textbooks provide a balance of a variety of tasks. The analyses of the requirements in textbook tasks contain…

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…

Geary, David C.; Nicholas, Alan; Li, Yaoran; Sun, Jianguo – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
The contributions of domain-general abilities and domain-specific knowledge to subsequent mathematics achievement were longitudinally assessed (n = 167) through 8th grade. First grade intelligence and working memory and prior grade reading achievement indexed domain-general effects, and domain-specific effects were indexed by prior grade…

Selling, Sarah Kate – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
To learn mathematical practices, students need opportunities to engage in them. But simply providing such opportunities may not be sufficient to support all students. Simultaneously, explicitly teaching mathematical practices could be problematic if instruction becomes prescriptive. This study investigated how teachers might make mathematical…
