Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Higher)
The prediction of college mathematics grades has been widely researched. Results from other studies have shown that the prediction of college mathematics grades can vary depending on the set of predictor variables considered. For instance, some...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching -- Russia; Mathematics -- Study and teaching -- United States
This study describes the difference between elementary mathematics education in Russia and the United States. What can we learn from Russian mathematics education? The thesis presents that the main source of Russian achievements in mathematics...
Mathematics -- Remedial teaching; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Can low achieving mathematics students succeed in the study of linear inequalities and linear programming through real world problem based instruction? This study sought to answer this question by comparing two groups of low achieving mathematics...
Comparative education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- United States -- Cross-cultural studies; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Japan -- Cross-cultural studies
In recent years, policymakers and academic experts have expressed alarm about the variance between Eastern and Western mathematics achievement. Research reveals that classrooms in the United States are lagging behind their Eastern counterparts....
Mathematics -- Remedial teaching; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Many resources are currently devoted to math remediation at the college level (Phipps, 1998. Plucker, Wongsarnpigoon, Houser, 2006). These are additional courses that students must take that do not count toward graduation. Universities must...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching; Mathematics and literature
A major focus of many school districts in Connecticut is their students' results on the Connecticut Mastery Tests ("CMT"). As a result, many curricula include a review of concepts included in the test in advance of the test administration. However,...
Mathematics--Study and teaching (Secondary); Word problems (Mathematics)--Study and teaching (Secondary)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of using Multiple Representations Charts in the classroom. This thesis was focused on the comparison of students’ abilities to solve word problems using Multiple Representations Charts as an...

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...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary); Iowa Tests of Basic Skills; Mathematics -- Testing; Educational tests and measurements
Students in seven Springfield, Massachusetts Schools receive extra mathematics lessons in Mathematics Laboratories. The period for these lessons comes during the time that classroom teachers receive their preparation periods. By contract language,...
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...
Technology -- Study and teaching (Middle school) -- Connecticut -- Mystic; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school) -- Connecticut -- Mystic; Science -- Study and teaching (Middle school) -- Connecticut -- Mystic
Technology Education at the middle school level fulfills two unique roles. First, it should provide students with a hands-on application of the theoretical aspects of both the mathematics and science curriculums which make-up a portion of the...
For over thirty-five years average mathematics scores of students in the United States have been below the international average, indicating problems with performance when compared with students from other countries. The United States National...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary); Group work in education
Studies have revealed the effectiveness of the Reciprocal Teaching (RT) metacognitive strategies as a means of improving reading comprehension scores. This investigation sought to cross the traditional divide between language arts and mathematics...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Primary); Word problems (Mathematics)
This research focuses on the role of instruction in improving student responses to open ended questions in elementary mathematics. The participants in the study were elementary school students in third grade. The participants were chosen based on...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Primary); Music in mathematics education
Many teachers today use various strategies when teaching mathematics. The focus is often on mastering underlying concepts, like multiplication facts. These multiplication facts must be memorized and students must be able to retrieve them quickly...
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...
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...
