Hopkins, Sarah; O'Donovan, Richard – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
In this study, we investigate a program designed for young adults with intellectual disability to learn how to calculate the value of a collection of coins and notes with procedural fluency. In the first half of the paper, we establish the importance of financial literacy for people with intellectual disability and the need to address mathematical…

Pinto, Eder; Cañadas, María C. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
We describe 24 third (8-9 years old) and 24 fifth (10-11 years old) graders' generalization working with the same problem involving a function. Generalizing and representing functional relationships are considered key elements in a functional approach to early algebra. Focusing on functional relationships can provide insights into how students…

Hwang, Jihyun; Ham, Yeajin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
This research aims to scrutinize the moderating effect of teacher interaction on the relationships between students' self-efficacy and achievement in mathematics in three countries, Korea, Singapore, and the USA. We analyzed the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2015 data with hierarchical linear modeling. The findings…

Graven, Mellony; Venkat, Hamsa – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
In this paper, we share the results of the piloting of national diagnostic assessments for strategic calculation with Grade 3 learners in South Africa. The diagnostic assessment pilot intervention was focused on promoting strategic use of calculation strategies and aimed to move learners on from the concrete one-to-one counting methods that…

Leong, Yew Hoong; Cheng, Lu Pien; Toh, Wei Yeng Karen; Kaur, Berinderjeet; Toh, Tin Lam – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
It is easy to dismiss the work of "teaching students to apply formula" as a low-order priority and thus trivialises the professional knowledge associated with this practice. Our encounter with an experienced teacher--through the examination of her practices and elaborations--challenges this simplistic assumption. There are layers of…

García-García, Javier; Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
The aim of this research was to explore the mathematical connections that pre-university students make when they sketch the graph of a derivative function and an antiderivative function. Also, we tried to explain the origin of the mathematical connections identified. We assume mathematical connections as a cognitive process through which a person…

Uegatani, Yusuke; Otani, Hiroki – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
The purpose of this paper is to propose a new ontology of reasons for inferentialism. The existing inferentialist approach to mathematics education has a methodological challenge in retrospective analysis and a noncollaborative issue stems from a narrow view of learning. The proposed ontology, built on a radical interpretation of the…

Chesler, Joshua D. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
The definition of function varies from textbook to textbook at the introductory level. Though the definitions are often mathematically equivalent, there are linguistic features that may make some definitions more accessible to beginning learners. In particular, students who see functions as actions or processes rather than objects may be better…

Ferrando, Irene; Albarracín, Lluís – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
One hundred four students aged 8 to 16 worked on one Fermi problem involving estimating the number of people that can fit in their school playground. We present a qualitative analysis of the different mathematical models developed by the students. The analysis of the students' written productions is based on the identification of the model of…

Cohrssen, Caroline; Pearn, Catherine – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
In Australia, more attention is being paid to inclusion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (the so-called STEM subjects) concepts in early childhood education and care curricula. In addition, the focus on the quality of learning in the years prior to school is a growing priority, evidenced by pre-election promises to extend the…

Daniel, Leah – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
Preservice mathematics teachers are subject to multiple influences when they make in-the-moment instructional decisions in classroom settings. Little is known about which influences make a significant contribution to decisions regarding the mathematical content knowledge (MCK) that preservice teachers decide to enact. The process by which…

Moala, John Griffith – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
Research shows that though some students can easily find the correct solutions to the problem(s) at hand, the algorithms that these students create are not always ones that would, when implemented, produce the correct solution(s). Towards shedding light on this phenomenon, the present study explicates a mechanism--accounting for features of the…

Tonizzi, Irene; Traverso, Laura; Usai, M. Carmen; Viterbori, Paola – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
This study investigated the effects of a number sense intervention in 5-year-old Italian children (n = 96) from different socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds. We investigated whether a short-term intervention could enable low SES children to reach the same level of their middle-upper SES peers in number sense; in addition, we compared the…

Groth, Randall E.; Austin, Jathan W.; Naumann, Madeline; Rickards, Megan – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
The role of probability in curricula for children has fluctuated greatly over the past several decades. Recently, some countries have removed probability from their preschool and primary curricula, and others have retained it. One reason for such lack of agreement is that theory about early probability learning is still relatively new and under…

Fernández-León, Aurora; Gavilán-Izquierdo, José María; González-Regaña, Alfonso J.; Martín-Molina, Verónica; Toscano, Rocío – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2021
In this paper, we study how undergraduate students define 3D geometrical solids. With this aim, we have identified the routines that are present in the discourse of the students when describing and defining these solids. These routines are one of the properties that characterise the mathematical discourse in the theory of commognition (Sfard…
