Radovic, Darinka; Black, Laura; Salas, Christian E.; Williams, Julian – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
The construction of positive mathematical identities (MIs) is a complex and central issue in school mathematics, where girls are usually "counted out" of the field. This study explores positive MIs (high achiever and positive relationship with mathematics) of 3 girls. We employed a nested model of identity based on a case study approach…

Erdem, Emrullah; Soylu, Yasin – Journal of Education and Practice, 2017
Does the mathematical reasoning ability develop with increase in age? How is mathematical reasoning ability differing according to gender? The current study is trying to find answers to these two questions. The study using cross-sectional design, was conducted with 409 (8th, 9th and 10th grade) students attending middle school and high school in…

Duchhardt, Christoph; Jordan, Anne-Katrin; Ehmke, Timo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) has recently drawn additional attention to "mathematical literacy" as an important influential factor for individuals' life chances. High levels of mathematical literacy have thereby been linked to using mathematics in daily and working life frequently. In this…

Schukajlow, S.; Kaiser, G.; Stillman, G. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
The teaching and learning of mathematical modelling is an important research field all over the world. In this paper we present a survey of the state-of-the-art on empirical studies in this field. We analyse the development of studies focusing on cognitive aspects of the promotion of modelling, i.e. the promotion of modelling abilities resp.…

Watts, Tyler W.; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine; Bailey, Drew H. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Early educational intervention effects typically fade in the years following treatment, and few studies have investigated why achievement impacts diminish over time. The current study tested the effects of a preschool mathematics intervention on two aspects of children's mathematical development. We tested for separate effects of the intervention…

Adler, Jill; Hossain, Sarmin; Stevenson, Mary; Clarke, John; Archer, Rosa; Grantham, Barry – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2014
This article reports an investigation into how students of a mathematics course for prospective secondary mathematics teachers in England talk about the notion of "understanding mathematics in depth", which was an explicit goal of the course. We interviewed eighteen students of the course. Through our social practice frame and in the…
