Pareto, Lena – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2014
In this paper we will describe a learning environment designed to foster conceptual understanding and reasoning in mathematics among younger school children. The learning environment consists of 48 2-player game variants based on a graphical model of arithmetic where the mathematical content is intrinsically interwoven with the game idea. The…

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…

Vandermaas-Peeler, Maureen; Boomgarden, Erin; Finn, Lauren; Pittard, Caroline – International Journal of Early Years Education, 2012
While research demonstrates the importance of numeracy-related activities performed at home for young children's mathematics achievement, few studies involve observational studies of the processes which support children's mathematical learning at home. On this premise, this study reports evidence from numeracy-related interactions between parents…

Zhang, Yiyun; Zhou, Xinlin – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2016
Mathematical learning difficulty (MLD) is prevalent in the development of mathematical abilities. Previous interventions for children with MLD have focused on number sense or basic mathematical skills. This study investigated whether mathematical performance of fifth grade children with MLD could be improved by developing knowledge structures by…

Schindler, Maike; Rott, Benjamin – Education Sciences, 2017
Giftedness is an increasingly important research topic in educational sciences and mathematics education in particular. In this paper, we contribute to further theorizing mathematical giftedness through illustrating how networking processes can be conducted and illustrating their potential benefits. The paper focuses on two theories: Renzulli's…

Nickerson, Lloyd Emery, II – Online Submission, 2007
This study examines a math journal writing assignment comparing how high school (grades 10 through 12) algebra students who performed well and students who performed poorly on traditional mathematics tests constructed their corresponding journal entries. Statistically significant differences found indicated that students who performed well on the…
