Zakaryan, Diana; Ribeiro, Miguel – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Recognising teachers' knowledge as one of the main factors influencing their practices and student learning, we aim to contribute to obtaining a better and deeper understanding of the specificities of teachers' mathematical knowledge. A case study involving one 8th-grade Chilean mathematics teacher is presented in the context of rational numbers.…

MacDonald, Beth L.; Wilkins, Jesse L. M. – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Subitising, a quick apprehension of the numerosity of a small set of items, has been found to change from an individual's reliance on perceptual to conceptual processes. In this study, we utilised a constructivist teaching experiment methodology to investigate how the subitising activity of one preschool student, Amy, related to her construction…

Hilton, John; Larsen, Ross; Wiley, David; Fischer, Lane – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Open Educational Resources (OER) have the potential to replace commercial learning materials in education. An empirical examination of this potential was conducted, comparing the end-of-year mathematics test results of 12,110 elementary school students clustered within 95 schools from five school districts in the state of Washington in the United…

Al-Murani, Thabit; Kilhamn, Cecilia; Morgan, Debbie; Watson, Anne – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
We demonstrate the power of Variation Theory as an analytical tool used to understand the underlying conceptual structure of mathematics lessons taught by English primary school teachers. We study excerpts of three lessons that are posted on a professional website. We show how lesson analysis using variation allows us to focus on what is made…

Rasmussen, Klaus; Isoda, Masami – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper deals with the nature of teaching mathematical thinking and presents a case study of a single Japanese lesson where the characteristics of mathematical thinking and the teaching thereof are identified in relation to multiplication. The raison d'être for this teaching is questioned and investigated by looking at how multiplication is…

Ryan, Ulrika; Parra, Aldo – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Recently the prevailing language-as-resource metaphor has been problematised and theorised. Using the philosophical theory of inferentialism, we trace an epistemological dimension of multilingualism in mathematics education and add it to the current language-as-resource discussions. With data from two different settings--a mathematics classroom in…

I, Ji Yeong; de Araujo, Zandra – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Implementing challenging mathematics tasks with multilingual students who are not yet fluent in the instructional language is difficult for monolingual teachers because of the linguistic and cultural differences between the teacher and students. In this study, we examined how monolingual preservice teachers set up cognitively demanding mathematics…

Barwell, Richard – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
This article presents the results of an analysis of ethnographic data collected in three second language mathematics classrooms in Canada. The elementary school classes consisted of a group of indigenous students, a group of new immigrant students and a class in a French immersion programme. The focus of the analysis was on the sources of meaning…

Assaf, Fatima; Graves, Barbara – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Drawing on sociocultural theories, this study considers the multiple resources multilingual children use to communicate mathematically. We engaged with three children and a parent, in order to understand how multilingual children express their mathematical reasoning. The family was given a mathematical problem solving activity designed to…

Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Wagner, Jonas – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
International comparisons of languages have shown how mathematical concepts can be expressed and conceptualised in different languages. For multilingual students, these findings raise the question of how the interplay of languages and conceptualisations shape multilingual learning processes. This paper presents an investigation of case studies of…

Edmonds-Wathen, Cris – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Researching how mathematical expression varies in different languages requires methodologies which allow investigation of languages on their own terms and the presentation of mathematical data in multiple languages. Perspectives and tools from linguistics can assist in identifying and describing mathematical expression in varied languages,…

Weiland, Travis; Orrill, Chandra Hawley; Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Nagar, Gili Gal – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, we investigated teachers' abilities correctly to identify situations that are appropriate for proportional reasoning and factors that might influence their ability using data on 148 teachers from the U.S. Learning Mathematics for Teaching assessment and other, similar items (with a smaller sample). Through a quantitative exploratory…

Weber, Keith; Czocher, Jennifer – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
We report the results of a study in which we asked 94 mathematicians to evaluate whether five arguments qualified as proofs. We found that mathematicians disagreed as to whether a visual argument and a computer-assisted argument qualified as proofs, but they viewed these proofs as atypical. The mathematicians were also aware that many other…

Barnes, Alison – Research in Mathematics Education, 2019
Mathematical reasoning requires perseverance to overcome the cognitive and affective difficulties encountered whilst pursuing a reasoned line of enquiry. The aims of the study were: to understand how children's perseverance in mathematical reasoning (PiMR) manifests in reasoning activities, and to examine how PiMR can be facilitated through a…

Hoogland, Kees; Pepin, Birgit; de Koning, Jaap; Bakker, Arthur; Gravemeijer, Koeno – Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
This article reports on a "post hoc" study using a randomised controlled trial with 31,842 students in the Netherlands and an instrument consisting of 21 paired problems. The trial showed a variability in the differences of students' results in solving contextual mathematical problems with either a descriptive or a depictive…
