Anastasia Michalopoulou; Sonia Kafoussi – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This paper argues that engaging students in informal statistical reasoning from early school years is essential for the development of statistical understanding. We investigated if and how children aged six-seven years old identified variation in a table of data and made predictions through the design of a teaching experiment. The classroom…

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…

Portaankorva-Koivisto, Päivi Maria; Laine, Anu Tuulikki; Ahtee, Maija – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The use of open problem-solving tasks in mathematics education challenges teachers' beliefs, knowledge and practices. This article examines the practices of two primary teachers and their 3rd to 5th grade classes during a three-year in-service teacher training project aiming to increase mathematical problem-solving in class. Three lesson videos…

Sari, Mehmet Hayri; Herzog, Moritz; Olkun, Sinan; Fritz, Annemarie – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Research has shown that a profound place value understanding is crucial for success in learning mathematics. At the same time, a substantial number of students struggles with developing a sustainable place value understanding. In this regard, two aspects of the place value system appear especially relevant: First, the knowledge of the decimal…

Billion, Lara Kristina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
This paper adopts a semiotic perspective on mathematical learning according to Peirce, in which the actions on material arrangements are considered the bases for diagrammatic work. The focus is on the learner's actions using digital and analogue material arrangements which are the starting point for the reconstruction of the learner's mathematical…

Iskrenovic-Momcilovic, Olivera – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Scratch is a tool for initial learning of programming, but also for creating educational and entertainment content, making mathematical and scientific projects, simulating and visualizing experiments. This paper examines the effectiveness of Scratch's application in mathematics, in the study of basic geometric shapes. The analysis has shown that…

Capuno, Reylan; Revalde, Helen; Etcuban, Jonathan Olores; Aventuna, Marvin; Medio, Gerwine; Demeterio, Rino Anthony – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
The utilization of media to improve instructing and learning supplements conventional ways to deal with learning. Viable guidance fabricates between understudies' information and the learning destinations in mathematics. Through the using of media, it engages students, aids them in knowledge retention, as well as motivates them. This study…

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…

Kosko, Karl Wesley; Singh, Rashmi – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Mathematical argumentation and proof has long been identified with algebraization. Much literature discusses the relationship between the two, but with little specificity on how particular semiotic features in argumentation relate to coordination in early algebra. Further, there is a particular lack of research on this topic in the…

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'…
