Hartman, JudithAnn R.; Hart, Sarah; Nelson, Eric Alan; Kirschner, Paul A. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
To learn mathematics, historically students had no choice but to memorize fundamental facts and apply memorized algorithms. Since 1995 in the US, all states have adopted standards to govern K-12 mathematics instruction, and in most, standards have de-emphasized memorization and emphasized reasoning based on concepts. This change assumed the brain…

Henschen, Esther; Teschner, Martina; Vogler, Anna-Marietha – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Since the 2000s, early co-constructive mathematical learning in kindergarten has focused on political discussions and (mathematical-didactic) research. This is because kindergarten is the first place for subject-specific learning, next to socialization in the family. Research on this first institutional learning in the kindergarten often focuses…

Watanabe, Nobuki – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
In recent years, scholars have increasingly advocated the importance of cultivating non-cognitive skills (social and emotional skills) in early childhood, and play is useful in acquiring the skills. Simultaneously, young children also need to acquire mathematical cognitive skills as a learning foundation. However, many researchers have indicated…

Lee, Yujin; Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary Margaret – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2018
Since the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics ([NCTM], 2000) and the National Research Council ([NRC], 2005) revealed that problem posing needed to be incorporated into mathematics classrooms, the importance of teachers' roles in problem posing has been emphasized in K-12 mathematics curriculum because of instructors' impact on students'…
