Tunstall, Luke; Ferkany, Matthew – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2017
We examine the extent to which mathematics is necessary for students to flourish, a principle that consists of realizing objective goods in a lifestyle endorsed from the inside. Our conclusion is that, through the end of compulsory schooling, all students should take coursework that fosters quantitative literacy, or the ability and disposition to…

Ekstam, Ulrika; Korhonen, Johan; Linnanmäki, Karin; Aunio, Pirjo – Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 2018
Educational reforms during the last decade have led to a more inclusive environment for students with different needs and have placed demands on teachers' readiness to instruct diverse students in the general classroom. Previous research has ascertained that student achievement is correlated with teacher quality and teachers' efficacy beliefs.…

Kanak, Mehmet; Pekdogan, Serpil – Research in Pedagogy, 2018
This research aims to reveal the importance of science and mathematics education, children's natural curiosity towards science, and teachers' deficiencies and opinions in this area. In this study, where the qualitative method is preferred, the special case method, which enables in-depth research within a specific subject, is used. The study group…

Chiu, Mei-Shiu – Research in Science Education, 2016
The aim of this study was to identify challenges in implementing a physics-before- 10 mathematics curriculum. Obviously, students need to learn necessary mathematics skills in order to develop advanced physics knowledge. In the 2010 high school curriculum in Taiwan, however, grade 11 science students study two-dimensional motion in physics without…

Hunt, Jessica; Westenskow, Arla; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S. – Education Sciences, 2017
For children with persistent mathematics difficulties, research and practice espouses that an altered kind of mathematics instruction is necessary due to sustained performance differences. Yet, a critical issue in mathematics education rests in the question of why research locates the problem within these children. In this paper, we challenge a…

Jagals, Divan; van der Walt, Marthie – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2016
Metacognition encompasses knowledge and regulation that, through reflection, sustain problem solving behaviour. How metacognitive awareness is constructed from reflection on metacognitive knowledge and regulation and how these reflections enable metacognitive skills for Mathematics problem solving remain unclear. Three secondary schools…

Kharuddin, Azrul Fazwan; Ismail, Noor Azina – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
Integrating technology in the mathematics curriculum has become a necessary task for curriculum developers as well as mathematics practitioners across the world and time. In general research studies seeking a better understanding of how best to integrate mathematics analysis tools with mathematics subject matter normally observe mathematics…

Altintas, Esra – Educational Research and Reviews, 2018
The purpose of this study is get opinions of students on the subject of mathematics. It is thought that determining the meaning of mathematics in students' minds, the things that students associate mathematics with and the things that come to their minds when you say mathematics is vital. In this way, it is thought that it can be possible to take…

Falco, Lia D. – Middle School Journal, 2019
Findings from recent studies suggest that students' pathways into mathematics-related careers begin as early as middle school when students are forming lasting self-perceptions of their academic abilities. Middle school is also a time when students begin making choices about future coursework in math, science, and technology that will have…

Kollosche, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
In mathematics education, researchers have proposed a wide range of improvements of teaching practice in school, but only a few of these proposals have sustainably changed mathematics education in the desired form. This article takes off with the assumption that this gap between ideals and practice can be understood and challenged through a better…

Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Powell, Sarah R.; Stevens, Elizabeth A. – Grantee Submission, 2016
One influence contributing to this trend may be the imprecise use of mathematics language. Educators may not interpret mathematics as a second (or third) language for children, when, in fact, all children are mathematical-language learners (Barrow, 2014). The numerals, symbols, and terms that explain mathematics concepts and procedures are…

Powell, Sarah R.; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Doug – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2013
The Common Core State Standards provide teachers with a framework of necessary mathematics skills across grades K-12, which vary considerably from previous mathematics standards. In this article, we discuss concerns about the implications of the Common Core for students with mathematics difficulties (MD), given that students with MD, by…

Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy; Ramful, Ajay – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
Although the psychological literature has demonstrated that spatial reasoning and mathematics performance are correlated, there is scant research on these relationships in the middle years. The current study examined the commonalities and differences in students' performance on instruments that measured three spatial reasoning constructs and two…

Erbay, Hatice Nur; Yavuz, Gunes – Online Submission, 2016
Mathematics is seen by many people as the best way to get a good life and a good career. It is also thought as an assistant to understand life and the world and to produce ideas about them. Therefore, new reform studies are being held to construct a new system that assists students to learn mathematics in a comprehensive way (Dursun & Dede,…
