Fathurrohman, Maman; Porter, Anne – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
Teaching and learning of mathematics are integral parts of societies throughout the world. The fundamental or core nature of mathematics, its compulsory acquisition, requires high quality mathematics learning experiences. Moreover it is highly desirable that the emergence of new technology positively influences learning experiences in mathematics.…

Balentyne, Phoebe; Varga, Mary Alice – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
As online and blended learning gain more popularity in education, it becomes more important to understand their effects on student learning. The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of self-paced blended learning of mathematics on the attitudes and achievement of 26 high ability middle school students, and investigate the relationship…

Bouck, Emily; Flanagan, Sara; Bouck, Mary – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Manipulatives are considered a best practice for educating students with disabilities, but little research exists which examines virtual manipulatives as tool for supporting students in mathematics. This project investigated the use of a virtual manipulative through the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives--polynominoes (i.e., tiles)--as a…

Annetta, Leonard; Vallett, David; Fusarelli, Bonnie; Lamb, Richard; Cheng, Meng-Tzu; Holmes, Shawn; Folta, Elizabeth; Thurmond, Brandi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect Serious Educational Games (SEGs) had on student interest in science in a federally funded game-based learning project. It can be argued that today's students are more likely to engage in video games than they are to interact in live, face-to-face learning environments. With a keen eye on…
