Michie, Michael – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2017
The introduction of a new curriculum in Indonesian schools seeks to bring about changes in Indonesian society as well as students' knowledge base. The curriculum is based on two layers of competencies: Core Competencies, and Basic Competencies. Core Competencies are applicable at all year levels and for all subjects. They include religious and…

Ferri, Rita Borromeo – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2013
Teaching and learning of mathematical modelling has become a key competence within school curricula and educational standards in many countries of the world. The term mathematical modelling, its meaning, and how it can be implemented in mathematics lessons have been intensively discussed during several Conferences of the European Society for…

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…

Richard, Philippe R.; Oller Marcén, Antonio Miguel; Meavilla Seguí, Vicente – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
Our article aims to show how illuminating mathematical work as a concept from didactics of mathematics is useful in understanding issues relating to proving and learning of proof, with or without technology. After posing our hypotheses on the relationship of proof with mathematical work, the pedagogical intent of historical elements of geometry…

Platas, Linda M.; Ketterlin-Geller, Leanne R.; Sitabkhan, Yasmin – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
This paper describes the development and intended uses of the Early Grades Mathematics Assessment (EGMA), which measures essential early mathematical knowledge and skills that are foundational to more sophisticated mathematical abilities, predictive of later achievement, and teachable. Administering the EGMA can provide policy makers,…

Attridge, Nina; Doritou, Maria; Inglis, Matthew – Research in Mathematics Education, 2015
The belief that studying mathematics improves reasoning skills, known as the Theory of Formal Discipline (TFD), has been held since the time of Plato. Research evidence supports this idea, at least in the context of students who had chosen to study post-compulsory mathematics. Here we examined the development of reasoning skills in 16- to…

Gervasoni, Ann; Perry, Bob – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
The introduction of the "Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum-Mathematics" in Australian preschools and primary schools has caused early childhood educators to reconsider what may be appropriate levels of mathematics knowledge to expect from children as they start school. This paper reports on initial data from an…

Matthews, Michael; Rech, Janice; Grandgenett, Neal – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2010
In response to research documenting the mathematical deficiencies of pre-service elementary teachers, many teacher preparation programs are requiring mathematical content courses specifically focusing on the mathematics taught at the elementary level. This study considers what impact two such courses (one course focusing on Arithmetic, and the…

Philipp, Randolph A.; Ambrose, Rebecca; Lamb, Lisa L. C.; Sowder, Judith T.; Schappelle, Bonnie P.; Sowder, Larry; Thanheiser, Eva; Chauvot, Jennifer – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2007
In this experimental study, prospective elementary school teachers enrolled in a mathematics course were randomly assigned to (a) concurrently learn about children's mathematical thinking by watching children on video or working directly with children, (b) concurrently visit elementary school classrooms of conveniently located or specially…

Yang, Christine K. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
Mathematics education has emerged to be of prime importance in the United States, as American students' performance has shown to be consistently and significantly lower than many other nations in the world (Rampey, Dion, & Donahue, 2009; National Center for Education Statistics, n.d.; OECD Programme for International Student Assessment, n.d.).…

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…

Hill, Heather C.; Charalambous, Charalambos Y. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2012
This paper documents the ways mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) and curriculum materials appear to contribute to the enactment of a 7th grade "Connected Mathematics Project" lesson on comparing ratios. Two teachers with widely differing MKT scores are compared teaching this lesson. The comparison of the teachers' lesson enactments suggests…

Horn, Ilana Seidel – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2008
This analysis joins together two lines of work: research on students' mathematical identities and on curricular organization that supports equitable academic outcomes. This article conceptualizes students' sense of mathematical competence as emerging through the interaction between their extant identities and the mathematical worlds they encounter…

Choi, Kyong-Mi; Park, Hye-Jin – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2013
This study compares American and Korean curriculum standards, textbooks, and geometry items to help explain the consistent differences that have been found between the achievement levels of U.S. and Korean students in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) mathematics. Since PISA measures the mathematical proficiency of…
