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,...
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...
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; 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 -- 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...
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 (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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
