English, Lyn D. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
With ongoing concerns about environments that push teachers toward increasingly structured assessments, thus reducing opportunities to observe young learners' mathematical capabilities, the publication of this special issue on formative assessment is especially significant and timely. The articles illustrate how we cannot rely solely on…

Goldin, Gerald A. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
The investigations described in the ten fascinating research studies contained in the current volume of "ZDM Mathematics Education" evoke some perspectives in response. I consider the articles thematically in relation to a suggested set of important or pressing questions about creativity and giftedness in mathematics education, grouped…

Kitchen, Richard; Berk, Sarabeth – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
In our response to Clements and Sarama (2017), we address the 5 issues that they identify as criticisms of our Research Commentary (Kitchen & Berk, 2016). As in our original commentary, we highlight concerns we have regarding the delivery of [computer-assisted instruction] CAI programs and potential misuses of CAI, particularly at Title I…

Weber, Keith; Inglis, Matthew; Mejia-Ramos, Juan Pablo – Educational Psychologist, 2014
The received view of mathematical practice is that mathematicians gain certainty in mathematical assertions by deductive evidence rather than empirical or authoritarian evidence. This assumption has influenced mathematics instruction where students are expected to justify assertions with deductive arguments rather than by checking the assertion…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Sinclair, Nathalie; Chval, Kathryn B.; Clements, Douglas H.; Civil, Marta; Pape, Stephen J.; Stephan, Michelle; Wanko, Jeffrey J.; Wilkerson, Trena L. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
The NCTM Research Committee identifies key influences on mathematics education that are largely outside the domain of the academic world in which most mathematics education researchers live. The groups that are identified--including the media, companies and foundations, and other academic domains--affect the public's perception of mathematics and…

Fan, Weihua; Li, Nan; Sandoval, Jaime Robert – Educational Review, 2018
In a 2011 article in this journal, Hornby and Lafaele provided a comprehensive model to understand barriers that may adversely impact effectiveness of parental involvement (PI) in education. The proposed explanatory model provides researchers with a new comprehensive and systematic perspective of the phenomenon in question with references from an…

Thanheiser, Eva – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
In this commentary, I draw exclusively on the ten papers in this issue of "ZDM" focused on "Mathematical Tasks and the Student." These papers represent various cultural and theoretical stances and when reading them I was looking for common themes across some or all the papers. Based on my readings, I argue that (a) each task…

Askew, Mike – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
Many of the papers in this special issue draw on the fundamental model of numeracy developed by Goos et al. (Transforming mathematics instruction: multiple approaches and practices. 81-102, 2014). Four elements in that model--contexts, tools, dispositions, and mathematical knowledge--are embedded within a critical orientation, and being, or…
