The purpose of this record is both to explore and enlighten our understanding of the relationship between the capabilities of highly gifted youth and the current recommendations for teaching such students, and to describe the process of one such...
Cerebral hemispheres; Mathematics -- Study and teaching; Cerebral dominance
For many years, doctors and scientists have known that the two hemispheres of our brains have different functions. Damage to the left hemisphere in adults has caused severe speech problems. For this reason, the left hemisphere had been considered...
Problem solving -- Education (Elementary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
Mathematical problem solving is a complicated process involving many components.
Here, an historical overview of the study of the effect of problem solving instruction is
presented. The roles of contributing factors, such as the students'...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Connecticut; Mathematics -- Remedial teaching -- Connecticut; Mathematical ability -- Testing
Information about student performance was obtained by analyzing the performance of twenty-three fall sections of developmental mathematics taught at a state university. The independent variables included student performance on three predictor...
Math anxiety; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
Numerous studies can be found regarding the development of mathematics anxiety with secondary and college level students. However, little can be found providing evidence of mathematics anxiety in elementary school students. In an attempt to offer...
Mathematical ability -- Sex differences; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
The purpose of this study was to examine how mathematical discourse affects the achievement level of girls across third, fourth, and fifth grades. The Experimental Group sample of 26 students (13 boys, 13 girls) all participated in the Project M³...
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics; Mathematics -- Study and teaching
For years mathematics education has been at the center of discussion and action aimed at reforming curricula, teaching, and assessment in American schools and universities. Prodded by a series of critical national advisory reports and by...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Primary) -- Evaluation; Readiness for school; School age (Entrance age)
The age a child should be when beginning formal education has become a focus of interest. How old should a child be? Is there a correlation between age and performance on mathematical strategies? Kindergarten programs have become more knowledge and...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Personality and academic achievement; Prediction of scholastic success
The purpose of this study is to determine if a personality test combined with a mathematics placement test can be used to identify students that may need additional interventions as early in the school year as possible. The school in which this...
Circle; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
The federal law, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), has begun evaluating schools based on Standardized Assessments such as the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT). This has created a need to ensure that student achievement in mathematics reflects the ability...

Connecticut Academic Performance Test; Mathematical ability -- Testing; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Connecticut; Achievement tests -- Connecticut
The debate over the effectiveness of a "reform" mathematics curriculum verses a "traditional" mathematics curriculum in student achievement has been widely discussed and studied. Standards-based, or reform, programs emphasize applications to solve...
Mathematical ability -- Testing; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary) -- Connecticut; Achievement tests -- Connecticut
The purpose of this study was to examine if there is a correlation between cognitive development levels and CMT's scores across fourth, fifth, and sixth grade. The sample size in this study consisted of 30 students (10 from grade four, 10 from...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary) -- Connecticut
The purpose of this project is to develop and implement instructional, mathematics programs that are based on the students' individual developmental and cognitive levels of functioning. The goal is to teach students with meaning so that they gain...
Homework; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
The value of homework as part of the educational process has been debated for many years. Some researchers believe that homework is critical to learning and development, while others indicate that there is no benefit to the practice of homework. ...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Block scheduling (Education)
Many researchers have tried to find a direct link between block scheduling and student achievement. However, their findings have been mixed mainly because it was extremely difficult to account for other variables; therefore, not allowing...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Academic achievement -- Evaluation; Educational tests and measurements
The use of formative assessment has come to the forefront as a means of enhancing student achievement in mathematics. The hallmarks of formative assessment are questioning, immediate feedback to teachers and students, peer-review, task-focused...
Academic achievement -- Evaluation; Mathematics -- Study and teaching
The purpose of this thesis is to examine and explore the implementation of formative assessment in a mathematics class and determine its effectiveness in improving student achievement in mathematics. Wiliam and Black (1998) define formative...
In this thesis, the teacher's knowledge on the types of problems that exist in mathematics is discussed. Also, this thesis identifies the teacher's awareness on children's solution to the problems, as well as students' development of number...
Graphic calculators; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
Students can create graphs and tables with relative ease using graphing calculators. Yet some teachers employ this technology via the occasional hands-on activity, if at all, and if time permits. Middle school educators are largely responsible for...
