Working, Christopher – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018

The use of technology in elementary mathematics instruction tends to be low-level, despite its affordance of supporting the development of students' high-level reasoning ability. This study builds upon a sociocultural view of learning and was designed to determine what effect a technology-mediated dialogic learning intervention has on third-grade…

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…

Suh, Jennifer – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010

The following study describes design research in an elementary school near the metropolitan D.C. area with a diverse student population. The goal of the project was to design tasks that leveraged technology and enhance the access to critical thinking in specific mathematical concepts: data analysis and probability. It highlights the opportunities…

Polly, Drew – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014

This paper presents the findings of a study that examined pre-service teachers' development of knowledge about technology, pedagogy and content (TPACK) during a mathematics pedagogy course focused on elementary school mathematics in the United States. Data sources included work samples from pre-service teachers as well as an open-ended survey…

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…

Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

With the increased focus on computational thinking (CT) in education, it is important to investigate the affordances that CT may offer to support teaching and learning. This paper outlines five affordances of CT that may support elementary mathematics education, whose conceptualization was refined in a year-long study involving eight Grades 3-4…

Connell, Michael; Abramovich, Sergei – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

This paper illustrates how the notion of Technology Immune Technology Enabled (TITE) problems (Abramovich, 2014), in this case an exploration of variations in surface area we refer to as Stamping Functions, might be incorporated into a K-6 mathematics methods class operating within an Action on Objects framework (Connell, 2001). TITE problems have…

Hensberry, Karina K. R.; Moore, Emily B.; Perkins, Katherine K. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015

Computer technology, when coupled with reform-based teaching practices, has been shown to be an effective way to support student learning of mathematics. The quality of the technology itself, as well as how it is used, impacts how much students learn. Interactive simulations are dynamic virtual environments similar to virtual manipulatives that…

Lin, Cheng-Yao – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

This study sought to examine preservice teachers' beliefs about their intent to use educational technology in mathematics classrooms. Also, web-based instruction on topics in elementary school mathematics was used to foster teachers' confidence and competence in using instructional technology, thereby promoting positive attitudes toward use of…

Popp, Jerome A. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1986

Proposes that the role of mathematics education be re-examined in terms of an increased emphasis on mathematical knowledge rather than attainment of calculational speed. Offers perspectives on the reform movement in mathematics education and advocates the teaching of the history, logic, and method of mathematical thinking. (ML)

Fluck, Andrew; Ranmuthugala, Dev; Chin, Chris; Penesis, Irene – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012

Integral calculus is generally regarded as a fundamental but advanced aspect of mathematics, and it is not generally studied until students are aged about fifteen or older. Understanding the transformative potential of information and communication technology, this project undertook an investigation in four Australian schools to train students…
