Gula, Taras; Hoessler, Carolyn; Maciejewski, Wes – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Many students enter the Canadian college system with insufficient mathematical ability and leave the system with little improvement. Those students who enter with poor mathematics ability typically take a developmental mathematics course as their first and possibly only mathematics course. The educational experiences that comprise a developmental…

Brandt, Jim; Lunt, Jana; Meilstrup, Gretchen Rimmasch – PRIMUS, 2016
Educators often argue that mathematics should be taught so that the students in the course are actually "doing mathematics." Is there a consensus among mathematicians and mathematics educators as to the meaning of "doing mathematics?" In an effort to answer this question, we administered a survey to hundreds of university-level…

Cho, Seokhee; Yang, Jenny; Mandracchia, Marcella – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Mentoring Mathematical Minds (M3) units on gains in mathematics achievement and English proficiency of mathematically promising English language learners (MPELLs) in the third grade. The M3 program, developed by Gavin et al., was implemented for 1 year with treatment MPELLs (n = 86) but not…

Gülkilika, Hilal; Ugurlu, Hasan Hüseyin; Yürük, Nejla – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2015
Students should learn mathematics with understanding. This is one of the ideas in the literature on mathematics education that everyone supports, from educational politicians to curriculum developers, from researchers to teachers, and from parents to students. In order to decide whether or not students understand mathematics we should first…

Supandi, Supandi; Waluya, S. B.; Rochmad, Rochmad; Suyitno, Hardi; Dewi, Kamelia – International Journal of Instruction, 2018
Mathematical representation is an important skill in mathematics learning that enables students to interpret and solve problems with ease. However, building confidence in such a skill can be difficult for some students, especially for those who lack self-motivation skills. Therefore, this study examines the effects of the think-talk-write strategy…

Murphy, Julia; Chang, Jen-Mei; Suaray, Kagba – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Flipped learning is gaining traction in K-12 for enhancing students' problem-solving skills at an early age; however, there is relatively little large-scale research showing its effectiveness in promoting better learning outcomes in higher education, especially in mathematics classes. In this study, we examined the data compiled from both…

Bishop, Jessica Pierson; Lamb, Lisa L.; Philipp, Randolph A.; Whitacre, Ian; Schappelle, Bonnie P. – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2016
Looking for, recognizing, and using underlying mathematical structure is an important aspect of mathematical reasoning. We explore the use of mathematical structure in children's integer strategies by developing and exemplifying the construct of logical necessity. Students in our study used logical necessity to approach and use numbers in a…

Lee, Chien I. – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
Current mathematics education emphasizes techniques, formulas, and procedures, neglecting the importance of understanding, presentation, and reasoning. This turns students into passive listeners that are well-practiced only in using formulas that they do not understand. We therefore adopted the Polya problem-solving method to provide students with…

Gruebel, Robert W.; Childs, Kimberly – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2013
The Texas statewide assessment of academic skills in 1997 indicated that >55 % of the student population failed to master the mathematics objectives set by the test criteria and 42 % of the mathematics teachers at the secondary level in the East Texas region were categorized as underqualified to teach mathematics at that level. The issue of…
