Schoen, Robert C.; Champagne, Zachary; Whitacre, Ian; McCrackin, Shelby – School Science and Mathematics, 2021
Decades of research conducted worldwide has resulted in a taxonomy for word problems involving additive situations. Research published in the 1980s found that U.S. curricula only exposed first-grade students to a small subset of the easiest types of word problems. Widely adopted curriculum standards in the United States call for first-grade…

Sianturi, Iwan Andi Jonri; Ismail, Zaleha; Yang, Der-Ching – School Science and Mathematics, 2021
The purpose of this study is to compare the differences of four essential aspects (i.e., representational forms, contextual features, cognitive demand levels, and response types) embedded in mathematical problems within the topics of numbers and operations in mathematics textbooks used in Finland, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. This…

Eames, Cheryl L.; Barrett, Jeffrey E.; Cullen, Craig J.; Rutherford, George; Klanderman, David; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Van Dine, Douglas W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This study explored children's area estimation performance. Two groups of fourth grade children completed area estimation tasks with rectangles ranging from 5 to 200 square units. A randomly assigned treatment group completed instructional sessions that involved a conceptual area measurement strategy along with numerical feedback. Children tended…

Keazer, Lindsay; Jung, Hyunyi – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem solving has long been a priority in mathematics education, and the first Common Core mathematical practice (SMP1) focuses on this priority through the language of "Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them." We present findings from a survey about how prospective elementary teachers' (PTs) make sense of potential…

Colonnese, Madelyn W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Mathematical writing recently has been defined as writing to reason and communicate mathematically. But mathematics instructional resources lack guidance for teachers as to how to implement such writing. The purpose of this paper is to describe how methods of design-based research were used to develop an instructional resource when one does not…

McGee, Daniel Lee; Gonulates, Funda; Hodgson, Theodore; Brewer, Meredith – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
This article presents a large-scale longitudinal study of hundreds of students across the state of Kentucky that participated in a dual-focus mathematics intervention initiative when they were in the third grade. Rather than an exclusive focus on intervention, this initiative focused on both (i) high quality pull-out intervention and (ii)…

Tassell, Janet; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E.; Syzmanski, Toni; Denning, Savannah – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Innovation is more imperative now than ever before given the upcoming shortage in prepared teachers and the need to produce students with a strong knowledge of mathematics. A sense of urgency is impacting teacher education/preparation programs as instructional practices need to discover how to arm teachers to increase the number of students to be…

Hart, Lynn C.; Auslander, Susan S.; Venuto, Nicole; Jacobs, Tiffany; Carothers, Jody; Chestnutt, Cliff – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study was to review the existing research on affect (beliefs, attitudes, and emotions) of elementary prospective teachers (EPTs) in university mathematics content courses. We use as our time period from publication in the United States of the Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for Schools Mathematics through 2016. A search of…

Brobst, Joseph A.; Markworth, Kimberly A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
We conducted a multi-year study of specialization in elementary mathematics and/or science, using data drawn from a local sample of teachers and a nationwide sample of principals. Using the theory of planned behavior, we compare and contrast teacher and principal views and decision-making processes related to elementary content specialization…

Witherspoon, Taajah Felder – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The goal of this research was to examine fifth graders' understanding of fractions on the number line. This case-study design focused on the various ways that students represented fractions on number lines. Students responded to task-based interview questions by identifying fractions as a number on the number line as well as equivalency and…

Casa, Tutita M.; MacSwan, Juliana R.; LaMonica, Kara E.; Colonnese, Madelyn W.; Firmender, Janine M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Curriculum guidelines and professional organizations' recommendations lack details about how often and how much students should write in mathematics and what characteristics should define their writing. This study presents an analytic framework that addresses how often students are prompted in student mathematics books to write, how much they may…

Cormas, Peter C.; Middlemiss, Samantha – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics and science have similar learning processes (SLPs) and it has been proposed that courses focused on these and other similarities promote transfer across disciplines. However, it is not known how the use of these processes in lessons taught to children change throughout a preservice teacher education course or which are most likely to…

MacDonald, Beth L.; Westenskow, Arla; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.; Child, Barbara – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
Place value understanding requires the same activity that students use when developing fractional and algebraic reasoning, making this understanding foundational to mathematics learning. However, many students engage successfully in mathematics classrooms without having a conceptual understanding of place value, preventing them from accessing…

Amador, Julie M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
As teachers design lessons, their considerations influence their instructional practice. Researchers have found that teachers often have preconceived ideas about gender and large-scale assessment data show gender differences in mathematics achievement. Given the differences in gender performance, and recognizing the role that gender considerations…

McGee, Daniel; Richardson, Patrick; Brewer, Meredith; Gonulates, Funda; Hodgson, Theodore; Weinel, Rebecca – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
While conceptual understanding of properties, operations, and the base-ten number system is certainly associated with the ability to access math facts fluently, the role of math fact memorization to promote conceptual understanding remains contested. In order to gain insight into this question, this study looks at the results when one of three…
