Levenson, Esther S.; Barkai, Ruthi; Tirosh, Dina; Tsamir, Pessia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

This study focuses on adults who are neither preschool teachers nor professional caregivers and investigates their beliefs regarding the importance of engaging young children with numerical activities. It also examines the types of numerical activities adults report having observed children engaging with, as well as the types of activities they…

Lu, Xiaoli; Kaiser, Gabriele – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Modelling competencies are currently included in numerous curricula worldwide and are generally accepted as a complex, process-oriented construct. Therefore, effective measurement should include multiple dimensions, like the sub-competencies required throughout the modelling process. Departing from the characteristics of modelling problems as open…

Yang, Xinrong; Schwarz, Björn; Leung, Issic K. C. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Although mathematical modeling plays an important role in many curricula worldwide, significant discrepancies persist in the importance of mathematical modeling in ordinary mathematics classrooms and teacher education. This paper compares pre-service mathematics teachers' professional mathematical modeling competencies in three different…

Rodríguez-Muñiz, Luis J.; Aguilar-González, Álvaro; Lindorff, Ariel; Muñiz-Rodríguez, Laura – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Previous research in mathematics education has explored teachers' conceptions of mathematics and its teaching and learning, and how their instructional tendencies (e.g., "traditional", "technological", "spontaneous" and "investigative") relate to these conceptions. However, empirical evidence on this topic…

Castro, Encarnación; Cañadas, María C.; Molina, Marta; Rodríguez-Domingo, Susana – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

This paper describes the difficulties faced by a group of middle school students (13- to 15-year-olds) attempting to translate algebraic statements written in verbal language into symbolic language and vice versa. The data used were drawn from their replies to a written quiz and semi-structured interviews. In the former, students were confronted…

Meaney, Tamsin; Fyhn, A. B.; Graham, S. R. W. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

To increase possibilities for listening respectfully to Indigenous educators, there is a need to identify conversational prompts which are used to raise alternative views of social justice about mathematics education for Indigenous students. Using Nancy Fraser's description of abnormal social justice, an analysis was made of transcripts from round…

Schou, Marit Hvalsøe; Bikner-Ahsbahs, Angelika – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Formulas are involved in most parts of the mathematical curriculum in upper secondary education and in everyday mathematics classrooms, but research shows that students have difficulties using formulas adequately. When students are presented with a task, the task activates a conceptual frame in the students, making them perceive formulas in a…

Thurm, Daniel; Barzel, Bärbel – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Teacher self-efficacy beliefs, epistemological beliefs, and beliefs about teaching with technology are regarded as crucial factors for teaching mathematics with technology. However, there is a lack of research that investigates these beliefs while taking into account the multidimensionality of the constructs. In this cross-sectional study with n =…

Nieminen, Juuso Henrik; Chan, Man Ching Esther; Clarke, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

The important role of student agency in collaborative problem-solving has been acknowledged in previous mathematics education research. However, what remains unknown are the processes of agency in open-ended tasks that draw on real-life contexts and demand argumentation beyond "mathematical". In this study, we analyse a video recording…

Strohmaier, Anselm R.; Reinhold, Frank; Hofer, Sarah; Berkowitz, Michal; Vogel-Heuser, Birgit; Reiss, Kristina – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Mathematical word problem solving is influenced by various characteristics of the task and the person solving it. Yet, previous research has rarely related these characteristics to holistically answer which word problem requires which set of individual cognitive skills. In the present study, we conducted a secondary data analysis on a dataset of N…

Foster, Colin; Woodhead, Simon; Barton, Craig; Clark-Wilson, Alison – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

In this paper, we analyse a large, opportunistic dataset of responses (N = 219,826) to online, diagnostic multiple-choice mathematics questions, provided by 6-16-year-old UK school mathematics students (N = 7302). For each response, students were invited to indicate on a 5-point Likert-type scale how confident they were that their response was…

Quaye, Jeffery; Pomeroy, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Drawing on Bourdieu's theory of social and cultural reproduction, this article utilizes the conceptual tools of habitus and cultural capital to examine intergenerational inequalities in attitudes towards mathematics and mathematics learning in three secondary schools in England. Data from 1079 students aged 14-16 included mathematics achievement,…

Brady, Corey; Jung, Hyunyi – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

Though there is an extensive research literature on understanding and assessing individual modeling competencies, less attention has been given to characterizing the social context of the classroom in which modeling occurs. Yet a classroom's culture of modeling--its negotiated system of beliefs and values about the nature of modeling and what…

Wilkins, Jesse L. M.; MacDonald, Beth L.; Norton, Anderson – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

This study investigates the relationship between children's subitizing activity and their construction of arithmetic units. In particular, the study hypothesizes a positive association between children's construction of subitized units and their construction of arithmetic units, and hypothesizes that children who can subitize larger units, such as…

Levenson, Esther S. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2022

When it comes to choosing tasks, values can have a significant impact. This study explores teachers' values as they choose one task from among three that they believe will have the most potential to occasion mathematical creativity in the classroom. Participants' analyses of each task, as well as their reasons for choosing one task as most…
