Anderson-Pence, Katie; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
This exploratory study examined the influence of different virtual manipulative (VM) types on the nature of student pairs' techno-mathematical discourse (TMD). Three fifth-grade student pairs participated in 9 sessions of mathematics instruction using VMs. The study compared three VM types: linked, pictorial, and tutorial. Students' levels of…

Moyer-Packenham, Patricia; Suh, Jennifer – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
This study examined the influence of virtual manipulatives on different achievement groups during a teaching experiment in four fifth-grade classrooms. During a two-week unit focusing on two rational number concepts (fraction equivalence and fraction addition with unlike denominators) one low achieving, two average achieving, and one high…

Bolyard, Johnna; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
This study investigated how the use of virtual manipulatives in integer instruction impacts student achievement for integer addition and subtraction. Of particular interest was the influence of using virtual manipulatives on students' ability to create and translate among representations for integer computation. The research employed a…
