Borba, Marcelo C.; Confrey, Jere – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1996
Reports on a case study of a 16-year-old student working on transformations of functions in a computer-based, multirepresentational environment. Presents an analysis of the work during the transition from the use of visualization and analysis of discrete points to the use of algebraic symbolism. (AIM)

Linville, William J. – School Science and Mathematics, 1976
An experiment was performed to determine the effects of syntax complexity and vocabulary difficulty of problem statements on the ability of students to solve them. It was concluded that these variables do have an effect on students' performance, especially in cases of students with low general ability or reading problems. (SD)

Watson, Jane M. – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 1980
Some examples of typical nonrelevant textbook problems on probability are followed by more complex problems pulled from the real world. The resource used in this report is Newsweek magazine; and is used to help demonstrate that from the very beginning, lessons on conditional probability can have relevance. (MP)

Oldsen, Carl F. – 1983
A project was conducted for the following purposes: (1) to develop a workshop training package to prepare vocational education teachers to use vocational subject-specific modules; (2) to train those teachers to use the workshop package; (3) to conduct field tests of the metric modules with experimental and control groups; (4) to analyze, describe,…

Erekson, O. Homer – Journal of Education Finance, 1982
To examine the impact of enrollment shifts between public and private schools on public school expenditures per pupil, 1970-71 data were gathered on private school tuition and enrollment, public and parochial school expenditures, and demographic variables. Analysis using an economic model indicated few effects on public school expenditures. (RW)

Sorensen, Aage B.; Hallinan, Maureen T. – American Educational Research Journal, 1986
This paper applies a theory of growth in academic achievement to the study of the effects of ability grouping on reading achievement. The theory sees students' ability and effort determining how they utilize opportunities for learning provided by instruction. (Author/JAZ)

Tirosh, Dina; Graeber, Anna O. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1990
Investigated was the use of cognitive conflict to probe the misconceptions held by preservice elementary teachers that in a division problem the quotient must be less than the dividend. Explains how preservice teachers' reliance on information about the domain of whole numbers and their instrumental understanding support their misconceptions.…

Behr, Merlyn J.; Khoury, Helen Adi – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1986
Fifth graders performed better than third graders on discovering the function rule relating two number pairs. Task difficulty and mode of presentation (graphic or symbolic) varied by function. The children seemed ready to relinquish a hypothesis in the face of disconfirming evidence. (MNS)

Miller, Kevin F. – Developmental Psychology, 1989
Explored relations between measuring procedures and reasoning about amount on the part of 36 children of 3-8 years in 2 studies. Transformation on a relevant measurement procedure predicted difficulty of transformation for a domain. (RJC)
