Stevens, Alexis; Stevens, John – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
How is the president of the United States elected? Why is this the method used? Is this the best and most efficient way of electing the president of the United States? Questions such as these are well suited for a mathematics discussion that promotes numeracy, because, "notwithstanding the immense value of numeracy for education and vocation,…

del Rosario Zavala, Maria – Issues in Teacher Education, 2017
Effectively engaging students in mathematics discourse is challenging, especially in a language other than the one in which you learned mathematics. Teachers must manage the academic as well as social function of language. In Spanish-English bilingual classrooms in the U.S., changing the language of instruction to Spanish may not be enough to…

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…

Gilbert, Melissa C. – Journal of Educational Research, 2016
The author investigated the relationship between aspects of student motivation and performance on mathematical tasks varying in cognitive demand relevant to meeting the expectations of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M). A sample of 479 primarily Latino middle school students completed established survey measures of…

An, Song; Capraro, Mary Margaret; Tillman, Daniel A. – Journal for Learning through the Arts, 2013
This article presents exploratory research investigating the way teachers integrate music into their regular mathematics lessons as well as the effects of music-mathematics interdisciplinary lessons on elementary school students' mathematical abilities of modeling, strategy and application. Two teachers and two classes of first grade and third…

Schoenfeld, Alan H. – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
On October 14, 2013 the Mathematics Education Department at Teachers College hosted a full-day conference focused on the Common Core Standards Mathematical Modeling requirements to be implemented in September 2014 and in honor of Professor Henry Pollak's 25 years of service to the school. This article is adapted from my talk at this conference…

Barnes, Marcia A.; Klein, Alice; Swank, Paul; Starkey, Prentice; McCandliss, Bruce; Flynn, Kylie; Zucker, Tricia; Huang, Chun-Wei; Fall, Anna-Mária; Roberts, Greg – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2016
Two intervention approaches designed to address the multifaceted academic and cognitive difficulties of low-income children who enter pre-K with very low math knowledge were tested in a randomized experiment. Blocking on classroom, children who met screening criteria were assigned to a Math + Attention condition in which the Pre-Kindergarten…

Nasir, Na'ilah Suad; de Royston, Maxine McKinney – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
How issues of power and identity play out in mathematical practices are described by Na'ilah Suad Nasir and Maxine McKinney de Royston. Their article offers a perspective on how to better understand the sociopolitical nature of teaching and learning mathematics. They present data from studies of mathematics teaching and learning in out-of-school…

Murphy, Julia; Chang, Jen-Mei; Suaray, Kagba – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Flipped learning is gaining traction in K-12 for enhancing students' problem-solving skills at an early age; however, there is relatively little large-scale research showing its effectiveness in promoting better learning outcomes in higher education, especially in mathematics classes. In this study, we examined the data compiled from both…

Nemirovsky, Ricardo; Kelton, Molly L.; Rhodehamel, Bohdan – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
Research in experimental and developmental psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience suggests that tool fluency depends on the merging of perceptual and motor aspects of its use, an achievement the authors call "perceptuomotor integration." Just as expertise in playing a piano relies on the interanimation of finger movements and…

Won, Noelle – Professional Educator, 2017
This manuscript focuses on practical questions in a study that describes the perceptions of four teachers at the beginning stages of Common Core Mathematics implementation in a historically underperforming school district. The overarching goal was to understand the collaborative inquiry experience in a lesson study that focused on teaching the…

Gainsburg, Julie – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2013
Policymakers and education scholars recommend incorporating mathematical modeling into mathematics education. Limited implementation of modeling instruction in schools, however, has constrained research on how students learn to model, leaving unresolved debates about whether modeling should be reified and explicitly taught as a competence, whether…

DeFlorio, Lydia; Beliakoff, Amber – Early Education and Development, 2015
Research Findings: Children from families of lower socioeconomic status (SES) enter kindergarten with less developed mathematical knowledge compared to children from middle SES families. This discrepancy is present at age 3 years and likely stems from differences in the home learning environment. This study reports SES-related differences both in…

Marbach, Joshua – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
The Mathematics Fluency and Calculation Tests (MFaCTs) are a series of measures designed to assess for arithmetic calculation skills and calculation fluency in children ages 6 through 18. There are five main purposes of the MFaCTs: (1) identifying students who are behind in basic math fact automaticity; (2) evaluating possible delays in arithmetic…

Sengupta-Irving, Tesha; Enyedy, Noel – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
This article investigates why students reported liking a student-driven learning design better than a highly guided design despite equivalent gains in knowledge assessments in both conditions. We created two learning designs based on the distinction in the literature between student-driven and teacher-led approaches. One teacher assigned each of…
