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…

Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri; Rokhmah, Siti; Ramful, Ajay – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
A major challenge in the field of spatial reasoning is the translation of decades of accumulated research findings from the domain of psychology and mathematics education into the school mathematics curriculum. This study aimed to operationalise a heuristic termed visualise-predict-check (VPC) for the teaching of spatial visualisation and explore…

Mulligan, Joanne; Woolcott, Geoff; Mitchelmore, Michael; Busatto, Susan; Lai, Jennifer; Davis, Brent – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
As part of the "Connecting Mathematics Learning through Spatial Reasoning" project, a Spatial Reasoning Mathematics Program (SRMP) intervention was implemented with one cohort of 30 students in grades 3 through 4. The SRMP embedded transformation skills in learning sequences comprising repeating and growing patterns, 2D and 3D…

Sorby, Sheryl A.; Panther, Grace C. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) testing is conducted every 3 years by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD; oecd.org) with 15-year-olds across the globe. Students complete a battery of tests in science, reading, and mathematics and complete an attitudinal survey. The goal of the PISA testing is…

Pollitt, Rachel; Cohrssen, Caroline; Seah, Wee Tiong – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Children are innately mathematical and explore mathematical concepts through play. However, educator beliefs about mathematics can impact the inclusion of mathematics in early childhood education (ECE). Recent research has suggested that spatial reasoning is a key concept which forms the foundations of mathematics learning. The theoretical…

Owens, Kay – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Many studies on visuospatial reasoning have drawn upon a psychological perspective. Importantly, some research has shown that spatial capabilities are developed through experiences and others emphasize the value of physical involvement. This article reports on investigations of how ecocultural experiences, that is cultural experiences in the…

Fujita, Taro; Kondo, Yutaka; Kumakura, Hiroyuki; Kunimune, Susumu; Jones, Keith – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Given the important role played by students' spatial reasoning skills, in this paper we analyse how students use these skills to solve problems involving 2D representations of 3D geometrical shapes. Using data from in total 1357 grades 4 to 9 students, we examine how they visualise shapes in the given diagrams and make use of properties of shapes…

Lowrie, Tom; Resnick, Ilyse; Harris, Danielle; Logan, Tracy – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Spatial reasoning, the ability to mentally represent and transform objects and their relations, is considered so closely connected to mathematics that there is no longer a question of whether the two are related. Instead, there remains debate about how to answer the question of why. This paper explores the way the two fields of mathematics…

Seah, Rebecca Tock Kuan; Horne, Marj – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2020
Measurement concepts such as volume and surface area provide rich contexts for real-world applications of number processes. Despite their importance, many students and prospective teachers show superficial understanding of measurement concepts. A lack of spatial reasoning and integration of geometric knowledge in problem solving situations may be…
