Faragher, Rhonda M.; Clarke, Barbara A. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Children with Down syndrome can and do learn important mathematics and increasingly, this is occurring in regular school classrooms. The research literature offers little about the practices of effective primary school teachers who are including children with Down syndrome in the teaching of mathematics. In this paper we present findings from a…

Hunter, Jodie; Hunter, Roberta; Anthony, Glenda – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Persistent inequities in mathematics teaching and learning for specific groups of learners are a key challenge for researchers and educators. The use of ability grouping has been common practice in New Zealand mathematics classrooms. However, many researchers (e.g. Boaler and Wiliam 2001; Zevenbergen in 2003) highlight the negative effects of…

Schnepel, Susanne; Krähenmann, Helena; Sermier Dessemontet, Rachel; Moser Opitz, Elisabeth – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Little is known about the mathematical development of students with intellectual disabilities (ID) in inclusive classrooms. It is important to have a research-based understanding of the subject since inclusive education is becoming the norm in many countries, and an increasing number of students with an ID now attend mainstream schools. We…

Rottmann, Thomas; Haberzettl, Nora; Krämer, Magali – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Disparate approaches to assessment pursue differing purposes. Clinical assessment interviews like the Australian early numeracy interview (ENI; Clarke et al. 2002) or its German version ElementarMathematisches BasisInterview (EMBI; Peter-Koop et al. 2007) can be used to gain insights into children's mathematical thinking and aim at providing a…

Lambert, Rachel; Tan, Paulo – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Using a Disability Studies in Education framework, this systematic review analyzed international research published in English (2013-2017) on the teaching and learning of mathematics from the prekindergarten to 12th-grade level, comparing research on students identified as having disabilities to research on students without disabilities. Coding…

Lindenskov, Lena; Lindhardt, Bent – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
The Danish MINK (Mathematics and Inclusion) project explored inclusive mathematics teaching in regular classes in ordinary public schools, with a focus on teacher professional development and classroom experiments as the main elements. The project started as a reaction to the challenges for practice arising from a political reform. The MINK…

Robertson, Sally-Ann; Graven, Mellony – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
This article explores the power of language to either include or exclude certain groups of students from genuine opportunities for mathematical sense-making. The substantial increase worldwide in the number of students learning mathematics through a language other than their primary language makes this a particularly urgent issue. This paper…

Hußmann, Stephan; Schacht, Florian; Schindler, Maike – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
The purpose of this article is to show how the philosophical theory of inferentialism can be used to understand students' conceptual development in the field of mathematics. Based on the works of philosophers such as Robert Brandom, an epistemological theory in mathematics education is presented that offers the opportunity to trace students'…

Ellis, Amy; Özgür, Zekiye; Reiten, Lindsay – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
Teachers play a critical role in supporting students' mathematical engagement. There is evidence that meaningful student engagement occurs more often in student-centered classrooms, in which the teacher and the students mutually share mathematical authority. However, teacher-centered instruction continues to dominate classroom discourse, and…

Jaremus, Felicia; Gore, Jennifer; Fray, Leanne; Prieto-Rodriguez, Elena – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
With science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) heralded as pivotal to Australia's future prosperity, declining participation in Year 12 mathematics and science has attracted nationwide concern. While the national statistics certainly provide clear evidence of declining enrolments and the underrepresentation of females in STEM, we…

Safrudiannur; Rott, Benjamin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
The results of international comparative studies like PISA and TIMSS attract researchers to conduct studies comparing math contents of curricula directly to each other. Unlike those studies, we compared math contents of Indonesian and Singaporean curricula based on math contents tested in PISA 2012 items. We also enrich the comparison with the…

Sikora, Joanna; Pitt, David G. W. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
Students in many jurisdictions can study Mathematics at different levels in their final 2 years of secondary education. The levels of Mathematics range from standard (not involving calculus), through basic calculus, to more advanced treatments of calculus and algebra. In this context, some students can elect to study Mathematics at a level below…

Hunter, Jodie; Sawatzki, Carly – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
This article reports the findings of a study using tasks where a family orders and considers sharing the cost of a "Fish n Chips" meal. Purchasing take-away food is an example of an everyday situation where literacy and numeracy must be applied to make sense of tabulated price information. Originally developed for use in Australia, the…

Lesseig, Kristin; Hine, Gregory; Na, Gwi Soo; Boardman, Kaleinani – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
Despite the recognised importance of mathematical proof in secondary education, there is a limited but growing body of literature indicating how preservice secondary mathematics teachers (PSMTs) view proof and the teaching of proof. The purpose of this survey research was to investigate how PSMTs in Australia, the USA and Korea perceive of proof…

Frischemeier, Daniel – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2019
Comparing groups is a fundamental activity in statistics since it includes many basic concepts like center, variability, and representation and can pave the way to inferential statistics. Preliminary work involving group comparisons can be undertaken at an early age, e.g., at primary school using proto-concepts like modal clumps, precursor…
