Shih, Jeffrey C.; Reys, Robert E.; Engledowl, Christopher – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
The Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED) has historically been used to report the number of new doctorates entering over 100 different academic disciplines annually, including the field of mathematics education. In this article, we examine the validity of the use of this measure for this purpose by analyzing data from 23 institutions that grant…

Ahmed, Ishtiaq; Chao, Theodore – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Students with visual impairments (SVIs) are often dehumanized in mathematics education, based on deficit perspectives, the assumption that mathematics learning must be visual, and a lack of tools that allow students on the entire spectrum of vision to collaborate mathematically. The current advent of assistive learning technologies (ALTs) holds…

Matney, Gabriel – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
The study described here is a longitudinal qualitative case study conducted on a mathematics pre-service teaching program at a university in Southeast Asia. The university program of study required all pre-service teachers of mathematics to be involved in an alternative form of field experience in which the pre-service teachers would enact…

Greenstein, Steven; Baglieri, Susan – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
A transcribed conversation between a mathematics educator and a disability studies educator is presented to highlight cross-disciplinary dialog as a fruitful space for recursive and reflexive engagement from which may emerge concepts to further both mathematics and disability education. The opening question, "How can I know what's possible in…

Goldstein, Deena Soffer – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Research in mathematics education among d/Deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students has documented that DHH students lag behind their hearing peers on measures of mathematics achievement. The discrepancy is attributed to multiple factors, including mathematics instruction that focuses on skill and computation. Research focused on mathematics…

Pratt, Sarah Smitherman – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Middle-grades mathematics prospective teachers (PSTs) participated in three iterations of a design experiment that explored their current conceptualizations of integer and binomial multiplication; this study analyzed whether that knowledge changed after engaging in a series of scaffolded tasks while using area models as concrete manipulatives.…

Store, Jessie Chitsanzo – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
In response to students' difficulties with algebra, many have advocated for algebraic thinking in elementary schools as a route to algebra. However, many studies show students' difficulties with algebraic thinking and teachers' challenges with creating a context that supports reasoning. This article presents a constructivist-grounded theory of…

Kosko, Karl W. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Multiplicative reasoning as articulated through scheme theory suggests that students improve the sophistication of their reasoning as they are able to coordinate additional levels of units, often described through students' use of schemes and operation at particular multiplicative concepts. Theoretical descriptions of the second and third…

Lewis, Katherine E.; Lynn, Dylan M. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Research on mathematics learning disability (i.e., dyscalculia) tends to adopt a deficit model of the learner and quantify the ways in which these students are deficient. In this study we adopt a radically different approach. We understand disabilities to result from issues of access, and we explore mathematics learning disability (MLD) by…

Henderson Pinter, Holly; Merritt, Eileen G.; Berry, Robert Q., III; Rimm-Kaufman, Sara E. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
This article presents a study that investigated potential misconceptions presented in third grade mathematics classrooms and the association of these potential misconceptions with Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT) and standards-based teaching practices (as measured by the Mathematics Scan). A sequential explanatory mixed methods model was…

Switzer, J. Matt – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Research findings have established common student misconceptions for literal symbolic representations of variables but lack corresponding findings of when or how these misconceptions arise. This article reports findings from an exploratory study of U.S. grade 4-6 students' conception(s) for various representations of unknown addends commonly found…

Yee, Sean; Otten, Sam; Taylor, Megan – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Teaching methods courses are a crucial factor in the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers. Throughout the United States, secondary methods courses have diverse curricula, including variation in the topics covered in these courses. To assess this variation, the authors identified 41 topics potentially valued by secondary methods…

Elrod, Melody J.; Strayer, Jeremy F. – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
Research indicates that standards-based mathematics instruction positively supports students' academic development. Although standards documents identify accepted best practices, they do not speak to the impact that students' expectations of the mathematics classroom has on the successful implementation of standards-based instruction at the…

Dawkins, Paul Christian – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
This study investigates students' development of metamathematical understanding of axioms. Based on four semesters of experiments teaching neutral, axiomatic geometry, often through guided reinvention, I identify five categories of student interpretations of their axiomatizing activity. Similar to previously observed patterns in student…

Lu, Lianfang; Richardson, Kerri – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2018
This article investigates two children's intuitive thinking in solving multiplication problems from different educational backgrounds. One of the children is in a southern elementary school in the US. He was given the same problems both in first and second grades. The other child was a first grader in a southwest region of China, and she was given…
