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…

Ekdahl, Anna-Lena; Venkat, Hamsa; Runesson, Ulla – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016

In this article, we present a coding framework based on simultaneity and connections. The coding focuses on microlevel attention to three aspects of simultaneity and connections: between representations, within examples, and between examples. Criteria for coding that we viewed as mathematically important within part-whole additive relations…

Heyd-Metzuyanim, Einat; Graven, Mellony – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016

The reported research attempts to trace possible reasons for third grade learners' limited progress in numeracy in a low socioeconomic status (SES) South African context. This is done through two lenses, both stemming from Sfard's commognitive (The term "commognition" has been offered by Sfard (2008) as an amalgam of…

Bautista, Alfredo; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2012

Much of the evidence provided in support of the argument that mathematical knowing is embodied/enacted is based on the analysis of gestures and bodily configurations, and, to a lesser extent, on certain vocal features (e.g., prosody). However, there are dimensions involved in the emergence of mathematical knowing and the production of mathematical…

Csikos, Csaba; Szitanyi, Judit; Kelemen, Rita – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2012

The present study aims to investigate the effects of a design experiment developed for third-grade students in the field of mathematics word problems. The main focus of the program was developing students' knowledge about word problem solving strategies with an emphasis on the role of visual representations in mathematical modeling. The experiment…

Academic Music: Music Instruction to Engage Third-Grade Students in Learning Basic Fraction Concepts

Courey, Susan Joan; Balogh, Endre; Siker, Jody Rebecca; Paik, Jae – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2012

This study examined the effects of an academic music intervention on conceptual understanding of music notation, fraction symbols, fraction size, and equivalency of third graders from a multicultural, mixed socio-economic public school setting. Students (N = 67) were assigned by class to their general education mathematics program or to receive…

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…

Tzur, Ron – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2007

This study addressed a twofold problem--the soundness of a theoretical stage-distinction regarding the process of constructing a new (to the learner) mathematical conception and how such distinction contributes to fine grain assessment of students' mathematical understandings. As a context for the study served the difficult-to-grasp concept of…

Saenz-Ludlow, Adalira – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2006

Classroom communication has been recognized as a process in which ideas become objects of reflection, discussion, and amendments affording the construction of private mathematical meanings that in the process become public and exposed to justification and validation. This paper describes an explanatory model named "interpreting games", based on…

Empson, Susan B.; Junk, Debra; Dominguez, Higinio; Turner, Erin – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2006

Although equal sharing problems appear to support the development of fractions as multiplicative structures, very little work has examined how children's informal solutions reflect this possibility. The primary goal of this study was to analyze children's coordination of two quantities (number of people sharing and number of things being shared)…

Brookhart, Susan M.; Andolina, Marissa; Zuza, Megan; Furman, Rosalie – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2004

Forty-one students in two third grade classes, including special education students, participated in an action research project conducted jointly by two university supervisors, three teachers, and three student teachers. The "Minute Math" project involved students in predicting and graphing their test scores on a weekly conventional timed test of…
