Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Homework; Interaction analysis in education
This study examined whether writing targeted feedback to students on collected homework in the form of specific, process-related comments would have an impact in student achievement. This study was conducted over the course of 8 weeks in a public...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Word problems (Mathematics)
In recent years, there has been a focus on standards based tests results. The mathematics portions of these tests contain vast amounts of reading, which may affect how accurately they measure the mathematics achievement of the students being...
This research focuses on the role of pictures in elementary mathematics, specifically algebra. The participants in the study were elementary algebra students in Math 099 at Central Connecticut State University, chosen for this study based on their...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Manipulatives (Education) -- Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
This study investigated whether using concrete mathematics manipulatives affected student achievement in factoring second-degree polynomials. The 16 day study included 64 high school sophomores in four different Algebra II classes in a suburban...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Chemistry -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
The purpose of this study was to determine if integrating a unit on functions would benefit students. Previous studies have shown that integrating science and mathematics increases students' understanding of certain topics in science. Typically,...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Middle school); Mathematics -- Study and teaching -- Audio-visual aids; Manipulatives (Education)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the importance of manipulatives in
supporting algebraic thinking in the middle grades, and reasons why they are misused, or
not used at all. Middle school algebra teachers from both urban and suburban...
