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...
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...
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.
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 (Middle school) -- Connecticut; Mathematical ability -- Testing; Connecticut Mastery Test
For years researchers have provided evidence to support the fact that males outperform females in mathematics. In this study, eighth grade mathematics performance, as evidenced by year-end average and Connecticut Mastery Test score, was compared...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school); Academic achievement; Interactive whiteboards
Various forms of technology, such as the interactive whiteboard (IWB) and improved computer software are becoming more and more a part of our classrooms. An interactive whiteboard, when connected to a computer and projector, essentially turns a...
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 (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...
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...
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...
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 -- 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...
