Perrenet, Jacob; Adan, Ivo – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2010
Modelling is an important subject in the Bachelor curriculum of Applied Mathematics at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. Students not only learn how to apply their knowledge to solve mathematical problems posed in non-mathematical language, but also they learn to look actively for, or even construct, mathematical knowledge…

Desoete, Annemmie; De Weerd, Frauke; Vanderswalmen, Ruth; De Bond, Annemie – International Journal for Research in Learning Disabilities, 2014
The study was conducted to look at differences between children who outgrew and did not outgrow an early diagnosis of mathematical learning disorder (MD; n=13), and peers without MD (n=13). Children were tested at 5, 6, 7 and 10 years of age. About 54% of the children with an early diagnosis of MD still experienced mathematical difficulties at the…

Paik, Jae H.; van Gelderen, Loes; Gonzales, Manuel; de Jong, Peter F.; Hayes, Michael – International Journal of Early Years Education, 2011
East Asian children have consistently outperformed children from other nations on mathematical tests. However, most previous cross-cultural studies mainly compared East Asian countries and the United States and have largely ignored cultures from other parts of the world. The present study explored cultural differences in young children's early…

van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja; Elia, Iliada; Robitzsch, Alexander – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
This study aimed at gaining further understanding of kindergartners' performance in imaginary perspective-taking (IPT) by examining whether they can imagine "what" is visible from a particular point of view (IPT type 1: visibility) and "how" an object or scene will look from a particular point of view (IPT type 2: appearance).…

Tatsuoka, Kikumi K.; Corter, James E.; Tatsuoka, Curtis – American Educational Research Journal, 2004
This study used a diagnostic testing approach to compare the mathematics achievement of eighth-grade students across a sample of 20 countries, analyzing data from the Third International Math and Science Study-Revised (TIMSS-R, 1999). Using the rule-space method, student mastery was measured on 23 specific content knowledge and processing…
