Soldano, Carlotta; Luz, Yael; Arzarello, Ferdinando; Yerushalmy, Michal – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
The paper describes two versions of an inquiry-based activity in geometry, designed as a game between two players. The game is inspired by Hintikka's semantic game, which is a familiar tool in the field of logic to define truth. The activity is designed in a dynamic geometry environment (DGE). The inquiry is initially guided by the game itself and…

Schukajlow, Stanislaw; Achmetli, Kay; Rakoczy, Katrin – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
The development of multiple solutions for a given problem is important for learning mathematics. In the present intervention study, we analyzed whether prompting students to construct multiple solutions (more precisely: prompting them to apply multiple mathematical procedures to real-world problems) and prior self-efficacy influenced students'…

Roos, Helena – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
This literature review focuses on the definitions and roles of "inclusion" in the field of mathematics education to help promote the sustainable development of inclusion in the discipline. Discourse analysis was used to analyse 76 studies published between 2010 and 2016. The results show that the term "inclusion" is used both…

Sánchez-Matamoros, Gloria; Fernández, Ceneida; Llinares, Salvador – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
This study explores relationships among prospective secondary teachers' skills of attending to relevant mathematics elements in students' answers, interpreting students' mathematical understanding, and proposing instructional actions. Thirty prospective secondary mathematics teachers analyzed three high school students' answers to three problems…

Weixler, Simon; Sommerhoff, Daniel; Ufer, Stefan – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
The empirical law of large numbers is an important content in secondary school mathematics. Tasks used to analyze students' understanding of this law are often based on the hospital problem, but vary in various features, leading to mixed and conflicting empirical results. To identify task features that support students when approaching this type…

Dawkins, Paul Christian; Inglis, Matthew; Wasserman, Nicholas – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
This paper analyzes some of the ambiguities that arise among statements with the copular verb "is" in the mathematical language of textbooks as compared to day-to-day English language. We identify patterns in the construction and meaning of "is" statements using randomly selected examples from corpora representing the two…

Mithalal, Joris; Balacheff, Nicolas – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In this article, we examine how it is possible, in the teaching and learning of geometry, to bridge the gap between problems involving drawings and figures, which is essential to the learning of mathematical proof. More precisely, the way students' drawing perception has to evolve, from Iconic Visualization to Non-Iconic Visualization (Duval,…

Berger, Margot – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
A broad categorisation of different reading styles for mathematics text is generated in this research. The styles derive from those found in literature around academic reading skills. These styles are inductively refined using video transcripts of five specially chosen students studying out loud from a prescribed mathematics textbook. The context…

Valoyes-Chávez, Luz – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Reform-based discourses in mathematics education have fabricated different subjectivities for teachers such as the "traditional" and the "new" teacher. Professional development programs are proposed as effective mechanisms to fabricate the "new" teacher. However, this teacher has proved hard to produce. Thus, the…

Di Martino, Pietro – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Educators and several national standards highlight the role that problem solving should play in students' mathematics education: problem solving is recognized as one of the most significant activities of doing mathematics. From the research point of view, nowadays, it is well established that cognitive and affective factors come into play in…

Lepola, Janne; Hannula-Sormunen, Minna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In this 3-year longitudinal study, we examined the interplay of children's motivational orientations, spontaneous focusing on numerosity (SFON) and number sequence and arithmetical skills from kindergarten (at age 6) to grade 1 (at age 7). We also examined the direct and indirect contributions of motivation and SFON to the acquisition of…

Obersteiner, Andreas – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Affect and mathematical competence are each multifaceted constructs. Accordingly, the studies in this Special Issue address multiple pathways between the two in young children. This commentary highlights the variability of these pathways and asks how affective variables are specifically related to core mathematical activities such as problem…

Petronzi, Dominic; Staples, Paul; Sheffield, David; Hunt, Thomas E.; Fitton-Wilde, Sandra – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
There are currently many mathematics anxiety rating scales designed typically for adult and older children populations, yet there remains a lack of assessment tools for younger children (< 7 years of age) despite a recent focus on this age range. Following previous testing and validation, the 26-item iteration of the Children's Mathematics…

Passolunghi, Maria Chiara; Cargnelutti, Elisa; Pellizzoni, Sandra – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Literature that investigates the factors underlying arithmetic problem-solving achievement extensively evaluates the cognitive components, such as working memory (WM) and processing speed, at the basis of this acquisition. Recently, studies have shown that also the emotional factors, such as math anxiety (MA), could play a crucial role in the…

Batchelor, Sophie; Torbeyns, Joke; Verschaffel, Lieven – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics-related affect comprises an individual's attitudes, beliefs, emotions and motivations towards mathematics. These affective constructs have been widely studied in mathematics education and cognitive psychology and have been shown to be related to cognitive outcomes such as performance on a range of mathematical tasks. However, it is not…
