Dayal, Hem; Sharma, Sashi – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
"Probability" and "statistical literacy" is an important aspect of the school curriculum in many countries. In this study, we report on findings from a larger study that engaged pre-service teachers as key stakeholders in research in exploring teaching probability and statistics using a game-based teaching approach. The current…

Stohlman, Micah – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2018
The Price is Right Bidder's Row and games provide many opportunities for mathematical connections. The Price is Right website has videos or pictures for students to see how each game is played (http://www.priceisright.com/games/). This article will describe the mathematics of probability and statistics that is integrated in the famous television…

Tsubaki, Michiko; Ogawara, Wataru; Tanaka, Kenta – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
This study proposes and examines an analytical method with the aim of improving the quality of education and learning by situating the answers to full descriptive questions in probability and statistics to make variables of learners' comprehension of learned content as answer characteristics, based on actual student mistakes. First, we proposed…

Ruz, Felipe; Chance, Beth; Medina, Elsa; Contreras, José M. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2021
Recognizing that mathematics teachers are facing increasing demands in the teaching of probability and statistics (stochastics) at school level, we are interested in analyzing current pre-service teachers' dispositions about content knowledge and attitudes towards the teaching and learning of stochastics. We implemented a quantitative study for a…

Letkowski, Jerzy – Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, 2018
Single-period inventory models with uncertain demand are very well known in the business analytics community. Typically, such models are rule-based functions, or sets of functions, of one decision variable (order quantity) and one random variable (demand). In academics, the models are taught selectively and usually not completely. Students are…

Williams, Joshua E. – ProQuest LLC, 2016
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSSM) suggest many changes to secondary mathematics education including an increased focus on conceptual understanding and the inclusion of content and processes that are beyond what is currently taught to most high school students. To facilitate these changes, students will need opportunities to…

Alegre, Francisco; Moliner, Lidon; Lorenzo-Valentin, Gil; Maroto, Ana – South African Journal of Education, 2021
The academic effects of learning statistics and probability through peer tutoring were analysed in the research reported on here. Two hundred and eight students enrolled in Grades 7, 8 and 9 participated. Fixed- and same-age peer tutoring was implemented 3 times per week for 6 weeks. Each tutoring session lasted approximately 25 minutes. The main…

Ling, Lew Sook; Krishnasamy, Sivapoorani – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2023
Poor mathematics performance was generally reported from international assessments such as Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) among Malaysian students. Malaysia is ranked 52nd and 48th in the assessments for 2012 and 2018 respectively, while Singapore, Japan,…

Zetterqvist, Lena – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2017
Researchers and teachers often recommend motivating exercises and use of mathematics or statistics software for the teaching of basic courses in probability and statistics. Our courses are given to large groups of engineering students at Lund Institute of Technology. We found that the mere existence of real-life data and technology in a course…

Turner, Dusty; Pleuss, James; Collins, Christopher – PRIMUS, 2021
In the continual pursuit of classroom learning effectiveness, researchers and educators aim to develop strategies that improve student performance and learning. One such strategy is to create academically homogeneous environments where students are grouped into classes based on their preconceived academic ability. The research team tests this…

Pinto, Carla M. A.; Mendonça, Jorge; Nicola, Susana – Open Education Studies, 2022
The School of Engineering of the Polytechnic of Porto (ISEP) has embraced the DrIVE-MATH project, since September 2017. Active-learning (AL) techniques were implemented in several Math courses, namely Linear Algebra and Analytic Geometry, Probability and Statistics, Statistical Models, Computational Mathematics, and Differential and Integral…

Kilgus, Stephen P.; Van Wie, Michael P.; Sinclair, James S.; Riley-Tillman, T. Chris; Herman, Keith C. – School Psychology, 2019
Research has supported the applied use of Direct Behavior Rating Single-Item Scale (DBR-SIS) targets of "academic engagement" and "disruptive behavior" for a range of purposes, including universal screening and progress monitoring. Though useful in evaluating social behavior and externalizing problems, these targets have…

Newman, Isadore; Hitchcock, John H.; Nastasi, Bonnie K. – Research in the Schools, 2017
Any attempt to influence behavior by sharing a research finding that makes a probabilistic statement (e.g., a p value) should necessarily entail consideration of how consumers of the information might interpret this information. Such consideration can be informed, at least in part, by applying phenomenological principles of inquiry. This does not…
