Knapp, Andrea; Landers, Racheal; Liang, Senfeng; Jefferson, Vetrece – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
The researchers in this study investigated the impact of mathematics-focused parental involvement on Kindergarten to Grade 8 children and parents as well as factors prompting that impact. Qualitative analysis consisting of parent, child, and teacher interviews and 3-year quantitative testing showed significant improvements in students' mathematics…

Ferrara, Francesca; Sinclair, Nathalie – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
This paper focuses on pattern generalisation as a way to introduce young students to early algebra. We build on research on patterning activities that feature, in their work with algebraic thinking, both looking for sameness recursively in a pattern (especially figural patterns, but also numerical ones) and conjecturing about function-based…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Maheux, Jean-François – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
Mathematics educators have shown increasing interest in theorizing knowing and learning as something alive or as something that comes alive through the involvement of the body. Almost all current efforts attempt doing so by focusing on the body in which the otherwise invisible living being exhibits itself, thereby failing to consider everything…

Levenson, Esther – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2013
This study describes the types of explanations one student, Sharon, gives and prefers at different ages. Sharon is interviewed in the second grade regarding multiplication of one-digit numbers, in the fifth grade regarding even and odd numbers, and in the sixth grade regarding equivalent fractions. In the tenth grade, she revisits each of these…

Verzosa, Debbie Bautista; Mulligan, Joanne – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2013
This paper reports an intervention phase of a design study aimed to assist second-grade Filipino children in solving addition word problems in English, a language they primarily encounter only in school. With Filipino as the medium of instruction, an out-of-school pedagogical intervention providing linguistic and representational scaffolds was…

Thom, Jennifer S.; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2011
The idea that mathematical knowledge is embodied is increasingly taking hold in the mathematics education literature. Yet there are challenges to the existing conceptualizations: There tend to be breaks between (a) the living and experienced body (flesh) and linguistic forms of thought, (b) individual and collective forms of knowing, and (c) the…

Torbeyns, Joke; De Smedt, Bert; Ghesquiere, Pol; Verschaffel, Lieven – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2009
This study aimed at analysing traditionally taught children's acquisition and use of shortcut strategies in the number domain 20-100. One-hundred-ninety-five second, third, and fourth graders of different mathematical achievement levels participated in the study. They were administered two tasks, both consisting of a series of two-digit additions…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Thom, Jennifer S. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2009
Mathematical concepts and conceptions have been theorized as abstractions from--and therefore transcending--bodily and embodied experience. In this contribution, we re-theorize mathematical conceptions by building on recent philosophical work in dialectical phenomenology. Accordingly, a conception exists only in, through, and as of the experiences…
