Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Mathematical competencies are important not only for academic achievement at school but also for professional success later in life. Although we know a lot about the impact of "Home Literacy Environment" on the development of early linguistic competencies, research on "Home Numeracy Environment" (HNE) and the assessment of its…

Chan, Winnie Wai Lan; Au, Terry K.; Tang, Joey – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
Children struggle with mathematics for different reasons. Developmental dyscalculia and low numeracy--two kinds of mathematical difficulties--may have their roots, respectively, in poor understanding of exact non-symbolic numerosities and of symbolic numerals. This study was the first to explore whether Chinese children, despite cultural and…

Bell, Courtney A.; Wilson, Suzanne M.; Higgins, Traci; McCoach, D. Betsy – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2010
This study examines the impact of a nationally disseminated professional development program, Developing Mathematical Ideas (DMI), on teachers' specialized knowledge for teaching mathematics and illustrates how such research could be conducted. Participants completing 2 DMI modules were compared with similar colleagues who had not taken DMI.…

De Smedt, Bert; Gilmore, Camilla K. – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 2011
This study examined numerical magnitude processing in first graders with severe and mild forms of mathematical difficulties, children with mathematics learning disabilities (MLD) and children with low achievement (LA) in mathematics, respectively. In total, 20 children with MLD, 21 children with LA, and 41 regular achievers completed a numerical…

Crowe, Elizabeth Coyne; Connor, Carol McDonald; Mazzocco, Michele M. M. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The purpose of this research is to examine whether the effect of mathematics instructional strategies depends on first graders' entering mathematics skills. In particular, the authors compare Saxon Math, which is a highly scripted whole class mathematics core curriculum and Saxon Math supplemented with student/peer assisted learning opportunities.…

Fritz, Annemarie; Ehlert, Antje; Balzer, Lars – South African Journal of Childhood Education, 2013
A common theme of models of conceptual growth is to establish the hierarchical structures of abilities that can be interpreted along developmental lines. Integrating the literature on the development of mathematical concepts and skills in children, a comprehensive 6 level model for describing, explaining and predicting the development of key…

Human, Anja; van der Walt, Marthie; Posthuma, Barbara – South African Journal of Education, 2015
Poor mathematics performance in schools is both a national and an international concern. Teachers ought to be equipped with relevant subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge as one way to address this problem. However, no mathematics knowledge and practice standards have as yet been defined for the preparation of Foundation Phase…

Hotulainen, Risto; Mononen, Riikka; Aunio, Pirjo – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2016
This paper reports the results of the improving thinking skills (ITS-1) intervention study on the thinking skills of low-achieving first graders. The intervention programme consists of 12 lessons, each lasting for 45┬ámin. Lessons offer enriched-discovery learning activities and tasks to be solved through inductive reasoning. We used a…

Bryant, Diane Pedrotty; Bryant, Brian R.; Roberts, Greg; Vaughn, Sharon; Pfannenstiel, Kathleen Hughes; Porterfield, Jennifer; Gersten, Russell – Exceptional Children, 2011
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of an early numeracy preventative Tier 2 intervention on the mathematics performance of first-grade students with mathematics difficulties. Researchers used a pretest-posttest control group design with randomized assignment of 139 students to the Tier 2 treatment condition and 65 students to…

Miller, Jodie; Warren, Elizabeth – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2014
Students living in disadvantaged contexts and whose second language is English (ESL) are at risk of not succeeding in school mathematics. It has been internationally recognised that students' socioeconomic background and their achievements in mathematics is more pronounced for Australian students (Thomson et al. 2011). This gap is even more…

Inprasitha, Maitree – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011
In Thailand, the Center for Research in Mathematics Education (CRME) has been implementing Japanese Lesson Study (LS) since 2002. An adaptive feature of this implementation was the incorporation of four phases of the Open Approach as a teaching approach within the three steps of the LS process. Four phases of this open approach are: 1) Posing…

Zhou, Zheng; Peverly, Stephen T.; Lin, Chongde – Journal of Genetic Psychology, 2004
A problem with interpretations of differences in mathematic achievement between students from Asian countries and those from the United States is the seemingly implicit assumption of the cultural homogeneity of Asian societies. Researchers rarely measure the effects of variables within cultures that are hypothesized to be related to differences…
