Foster, Colin – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
Achieving fluency in important mathematical procedures is fundamental to students' mathematical development. The usual way to develop procedural fluency is to practise repetitive exercises, but is this the only effective way? This paper reports three quasi-experimental studies carried out in a total of 11 secondary schools involving altogether 528…

Adler, Jill; Hossain, Sarmin; Stevenson, Mary; Clarke, John; Archer, Rosa; Grantham, Barry – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This article reports an investigation into how students of a mathematics course for prospective secondary mathematics teachers in England talk about the notion of "understanding mathematics in depth", which was an explicit goal of the course. We interviewed eighteen students of the course. Through our social practice frame and in the…

Wright, Pete – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2017
This article draws on critical theories and perspectives on mathematics education to explain the tendency of mathematics teaching worldwide to remain focused on developing procedural understanding, despite repeated calls from the mathematics education community for a more relevant and engaging curriculum. It highlights how conventional approaches…

Hunter, Jodie – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2017
In recent years there has been an increased focus on the need for teachers to develop learning communities where all students have opportunities to engage in interactive discourse. However, there are few studies that focus on student perceptions and accounts of mathematical reasoning in classrooms with interactive mathematical talk as a focus of…

Cropp, Imogen – Research Papers in Education, 2017
Research has shown mathematical anxiety impacts on mathematical confidence and attainment, leading to avoidance of mathematics and mathematical careers. This research investigated if an intervention with peer mentors could help reduce students' mathematical anxiety. It took place at a Secondary School (11-18 years) in the South West of England,…

Worthington, Maulfry; van Oers, Bert – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2016
The aim of this study is to uncover the emergence of cultural mathematical understandings and communications in young children's spontaneous pretend play. It is based on Vygotskian cultural-historical perspectives and social-semiotic theory, informed by research into "funds of knowledge" and considers how children's informal knowledge of…

Morgan, Candia – Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
Mathematical discourse is often described as abstract and devoid of human presence, yet many school curricula espouse an aim to develop active, creative mathematical problem posers and solvers. The project The Evolution of the Discourse of School Mathematics (EDSM) developed an analytic scheme to investigate the nature of school mathematics…

Smith, Kim; Hodson, Elaine; Brown, Tony – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013
School mathematics is a function of its discursive environment where the language being used formats mathematical activity. The paper explores this theme through an extended example in which the conduct of mathematical teaching and learning is restricted by regulative educational policies. It considers how mathematics is discursively produced by…

Holmes, Stephen D.; He, Qingping; Meadows, Michelle – Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
The relationship between the characteristics of 33 mathematical problem-solving questions answered by 16-year-old students in England and the quality of problem-solving elicited was investigated in two studies. The first study used comparative judgement (CJ) to estimate the quality of the problem-solving elicited by each question, involving 33…

Jay, Tim; Rose, Jo; Simmons, Ben – School Community Journal, 2017
This paper reports on a study of parental involvement in children's mathematics learning in the context of a series of workshops carried out in four primary schools in the United Kingdom. Previous research suggests that, while there are high correlations between parental involvement and positive student outcomes, it can be difficult to raise…

Bokhove, Christian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This article reports on an exploratory project in which technology and dynamic social network analysis (SNA) are used for modelling classroom interaction. SNA focuses on the links between social actors, draws on graphic imagery to reveal and display the patterning of those links, and develops mathematical and computational models to describe and…

Darlington, Ellie – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2015
It is well documented in both the British press and mathematics education literature that many consider A-levels (qualifications for secondary school leavers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) to be insufficient preparation for undergraduate mathematics study in the UK. A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics are not solely intended for…

Kyriakides, Andreas O.; Houssart, Jenny – Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
Paraprofessionals increasingly work alongside teachers in many countries, with research suggesting they undertake pedagogic roles for which they are not formally prepared. We investigate this from the perspective of paraprofessionals supporting individual children with special needs in primary schools in Cyprus and England and develop a typology…

Howson, Geoffrey – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
For the past three years, the Program in Mathematics and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, has, in coordination with its colloquium series, held a Columbus Day Symposium. Each year, the all day event has been focused on a particular theme in mathematics education, and has brought in various speakers and leaders in the field to…

Dalby, Diane; Noyes, Andrew – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2015
For many vocational students in England, mathematics is now a compulsory part of their programme, yet the inclusion of an academic subject within a vocational course presents challenges. In this paper, an analysis of a series of case studies of vocational student groups in Further Education colleges in England shows how contrasting practices in…
