With so much emphasis on standardized test scores, teachers and administrators are under pressure to find ways to best prepare their students to succeed on state tests. A belief exists that children who are involved in music instruction have higher...
What began as a competition to appease a member of royalty's birthday wishes, continued on to not only introduce an entirely new area of mathematical studies but also to leave one particular question to remain without a complete and substantiated...
Today's special education teachers who work with students with difficulties in mathematics will need not only a deeper understanding of mathematics, but a thorough understanding in what the learning disabled student "sees" when approaching...
Cooperative work in education; Ability grouping in education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching
This study reviewed research on the effect of heterogeneous ability grouping in a cooperative learning environment on academic achievement in mathematics. A large number of studies has shown the importance of cooperative learning procedure in...
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 -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Self-evaluation
This researcher sought to develop a technique of self-assessment that was easy to implement on an everyday basis and increased student achievement in 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...
This project focused on designing an individualized plan of instruction in mathematics. The participants in this project were adult incarcerated males between 18 and 52 years of age. These men were enrolled in an Adult Basic Education program...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary); Mathematical ability -- Testing
This paper was designed to acquaint the reader with alternative assessments available in mathematics. The basis of this information will be used in designing mathematical performance assessments for grades K-8.
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...
The purpose of this research is to determine how a student's need for relatedness affects his or her motivation and academic achievement in mathematics. In addition, student motivation is examined independently of relatedness to determine its...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching; Brain -- Research; Learning -- Physiological aspects
The purpose of this meta-study is to investigate current research on the use of the brain in learning mathematics, and its implications for teachers of mathematics. With the new and numerous demands on educators along with an increase in the...
Professional learning communities; Teacher work groups; Teacher effectiveness; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Primary)
The purpose of this case study was to examine how 11 participants in grade 1 and grade 3 data teams and grade level instructional teams operated as professional learning communities and the impact on student performance in mathematics. This study...
The goal of this thesis is to trace the development in mathematical theory that led to the proof of the insolvability of the quintic. That is, there does not exist a general formula in radicals for equations of the form [not reproducible-see full...
Music in mathematics education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Academic achievement
Purpose
The purpose of this research was to explore a possible connection between students’ involvement in formal music activities and their achievement in mathematics.
Hypothesis
Students who have more exposure to music as measured through the...
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...
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...
In this paper Euclidean and hyperbolic discontinuous isometries* are discussed and compared. The graphic artist M.C. Escher (1898-1972) produced works which have for the structure points, lines, and angles, which repeat in the plane (Euclidean and...
Teachers -- In-service training -- Massachusetts; Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System; Educational tests and measurements -- Massachusetts
In May of 1998, Massachusetts students in Grades 4, 8 and 10 took the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science and Technology for the first time. These tests are based on the...
