Algebra --- Study and teaching (Secondary); Educational tests and measurements --- Connecticut; Achievement tests --- Connecticut
Each year thousands of students are tracked into mathematics classes. In these particular classes, students may struggle or find their mathematics skills less academically able than their classmates and give up on the tasks that are introduced to...
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 (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...
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...

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...
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...
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...

Music in mathematics education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school); Music, Influence of
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...
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...
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...
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); 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.
