Shayshon, Bruria; Gal, Hagar; Tesler, Bertha; Ko, Eun-Sung – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2014
The instruction of mathematically talented students (MTS) in heterogeneous classes is an issue of debate. Questions of equity, differential instruction, teacher awareness of their talented students' needs, and their willingness and competence to face the challenges of nurturing these students are all raised within this context. Our international…

Van Harpen, Xianwei Y.; Sriraman, Bharath – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2013
In the literature, problem-posing abilities are reported to be an important aspect/indicator of creativity in mathematics. The importance of problem-posing activities in mathematics is emphasized in educational documents in many countries, including the USA and China. This study was aimed at exploring high school students' creativity in…

Van Harpen, Xianwei Y.; Presmeg, Norma C. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2013
The importance of students' problem-posing abilities in mathematics has been emphasized in the K-12 curricula in the USA and China. There are claims that problem-posing activities are helpful in developing creative approaches to mathematics. At the same time, there are also claims that students' mathematical content knowledge could be highly…

Clark, Kathleen Michelle – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2012
The use of the history of mathematics in teaching has long been considered a tool for enriching students' mathematical learning. However, in the USA few, if any, research efforts have investigated how the study of history of mathematics contributes to a person's mathematical knowledge for teaching. In this article, I present the results of…

Alajmi, Amal Hussain – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2012
Textbooks play an important part in the design of instruction. This study analyzed the presentation of fractions in textbooks designed for the elementary grades in Kuwait, Japan, and the USA. The analysis focused on the physical characteristics of the books, the structure of the lessons, and the nature of the mathematical problems presented.…

Brantlinger, Andrew – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2011
This paper presents findings from a comparative analysis of three similar secondary geometry texts, one critical unit, one standards-based reform unit, and one specialist chapter. I developed the critical unit as I took the tenets of critical mathematics (CM) and substantiated them in printed curricular materials in which to teach as part of a…

Sun, Xuhua – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2011
This article deals with the roles of variation problems ("one problem multiple solution" and "one problem multiple changes") as used in Chinese textbooks. It is argued that variation problems as an "indigenous" Chinese practice aim to discern and to compare the invariant feature of the relationship among concepts and…

Son, Ji-Won; Senk, Sharon L. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2010
In order to give insights into cross-national differences in schooling, this study analyzed the development of multiplication and division of fractions in two curricula: "Everyday Mathematics" (EM) from the USA and the 7th Korean mathematics curriculum (KM). Analyses of both the content and problems in the textbooks indicate that…

Dogan, Enis; Tatsuoka, Kikumi – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2008
This study illustrates how a diagnostic testing model can be used to make detailed comparisons between student populations participating in international assessments. The performance of Turkish students on the TIMSS-R mathematics test was reanalyzed with a diagnostic testing model called the Rule Space Model. First, mathematical and cognitive…

Fan, Lianghuo; Zhu, Yan – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2007
This study examined how selected school mathematics textbooks in China, Singapore, and USA at the lower secondary grade level represent problem-solving procedures. The analysis of problem-solving procedures was carried out in two layers--general strategies, which adopted Polya's four-stage problem-solving model, and specific strategies, which…

Cavey, Laurie O.; Whitenack, Joy W.; Lovin, Louann – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2007
This paper provides a microanalysis of one Algebra I teacher's instruction to explore the advantages that are afforded us by coordinating two perspectives to document and account for the teacher's mathematical understandings. We use constructs associated with Stein, Grover and Henningsen's domain of mathematical didactics and Realistic Mathematics…

Presmeg, Norma – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2003
This reaction to the papers in this PME Special Issue of "Educational Studies in Mathematics" draws a wider perspective on the issues addressed and some of the constructs used in research in Realistic Mathematics Education (RME). In particular, it tries to show that while the problems addressed existed within the world-wide arena of…

Yackel, Erna; Stephan, Michelle; Rasmussen, Chris; Underwood, Diana – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2003
In this paper we present three cases of instructional design that illustrates both horizontal didactising, the activity of using already established principles to design instruction, and vertical didactising the activity of developing new tools and principles for instructional design. The first case illustrates horizontal didactising by…

Triadafillidis, T. A. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1995
Presents results of a study in Greece, Scotland, and the United States in lower secondary mathematics classes using haptic exploration, the intentional movements of one's hands about an object, as an alternative approach for teaching the geometry of two- and three-dimensional shapes. Students performed poorly with solids. (MKR)
