Hirza, Bonita; Kusumah, Yaya S.; Darhim; Zulkardi – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2014

The intention of the present study was to see the improvement of students' intuitive skills. This improvement was seen by comparing the Realistic Mathematics Education (RME)-based instruction with the conventional mathematics instruction. The subject of this study was 164 fifth graders of elementary school in Palembang. The design of this study…

Muttaqin, Haniful; Putri, Ratu Ilma Indra; Somakim – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

This research was motivated by several studies which show that students have difficulties in understanding the material ratio, wherein one contributing factor is the lack of ability in proportional reasoning. The purpose of this study is to produce a trajectory of learning to help students develop abilities in comparison reasoning. Solution…

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…

Kim, Dong Joong; Cho, Jeong-il – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2017

The purpose of this study is to investigate routines as guides for mathematical thinking. Four English-speaking and four Korean-speaking students were interviewed in English about the concepts of limit and infinity. Based on the communicational approach to cognition, which views mathematics as a discourse, we identified the primary characteristics…

Zhu, Nan – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2015

This study investigated the impact of cognitive strategy instruction (CSI) on mathematical word problem solving of students with mathematics disabilities. A sample of fourth-grade students in a Chinese primary school was divided into a treatment group (75 students) and a comparison group (75 students). The sample consisted of students with…

Hebert, Michael A.; Powell, Sarah R. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2016

Increasingly, students are expected to write about mathematics. Mathematics writing may be informal (e.g., journals, exit slips) or formal (e.g., writing prompts on high-stakes mathematics assessments). In order to develop an effective mathematics-writing intervention, research needs to be conducted on how students organize mathematics writing and…

Kutaka, Traci Shizu; Smith, Wendy M.; Albano, Anthony D.; Edwards, Carolyn Pope; Ren, Lixin; Beattie, Heidi Lynn; Lewis, W. James; Heaton, Ruth M.; Stroup, Walter W. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017

The present study investigated the effects of "Primarily Math", an inservice elementary mathematics specialist program. "Primarily Math" sought to augment the mathematical knowledge for teaching of kindergarten through third-grade teachers using a longitudinal multiple cohort design. Two sets of analyses were conducted. The…

Sleep, Laurie; Eskelson, Samuel L. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2012

This paper investigates the contribution of mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) and curriculum materials to the mathematical quality of instruction by comparing the enactment of a fractions problem taught by two teachers with differing MKT. It was found that MKT seem to support teachers' precise use of mathematical language and to prevent…

González-Castro, Paloma; Cueli, Marisol; Areces, Débora; Rodríguez, Celestino; Sideridis, Georgios – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2016

Problem solving represents a salient deficit in students with mathematical learning difficulties (MLD) primarily caused by difficulties with informal and formal mathematical competencies. This study proposes a computerized intervention tool, the integrated dynamic representation (IDR), for enhancing the early learning of basic mathematical…

Lesseig, Kristin – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016

Research documenting teachers' fragile understanding of proof and how it is advanced suggests that enhancing the role of proof in school mathematics will demand substantial teacher learning. To date, there is little research detailing what mathematical knowledge might support the teaching of proof or how professional development (PD) might afford…
