Campbell, Jamie I. D.; Kanz, Cindy L.; Xue, Qilin – Mathematical Cognition, 1999
Examines number naming, magnitude selection, and simple arithmetic performed by adult Chinese-English bilinguals born and educated in China to investigate the effects of surface notation on basic numerical skills. Indicates that retrieval processes in the arithmetic and selection tasks were more efficient with Arabic than Mandarin stimuli.…

Dreyfus, Tommy; Eisenberg, Theodore – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1982
Intuitions on selected function concepts presented in diagram, graph, and table settings were investigated. The sample was 443 pupils from grades 6 through 9 of 12 Israeli schools. Different groups had different intuitions, but these intuitions were independent of the settings in which presented and independent of abstraction levels. (MP)

Lee, David L.; Stansbery, Sam; Kubina, Richard, Jr.; Wannarka, Rachel – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2005
Basic fact acquisition is an important component for developing higher-order math skills. However, getting students with a history of academic noncompliance to engage in activities related to skills acquisition can be difficult. Prior research demonstrates that engagement increases when nonpreferred activities are preceded by a series of brief…

Morse, Emile; Lewis, Michael; Olsen, Kai A. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, 2002
Discussion of visual information retrieval systems focuses on an approach for testing novel interfaces that uses bottom-up, stepwise testing to allow evaluation of a visualization itself, rather than restricting evaluation to the system instantiating it. Presents a case study of undergraduates that compares a new visualization technique to more…
