A study was performed using a convenience sample of 90 students at a northeastern community college to determine gender differences of math anxiety and its effect on math avoidance. Four sections of an introductory English class were given a...
In recent years, mathematics instruction has been undergoing a change from a discipline that teaches procedures and skills to a more exploratory style, which creates a constructivist learning environment (Henningsen & Stein, 1997). There is now a...

Cerebral hemispheres; Mathematics -- Study and teaching; Cerebral dominance
For many years, doctors and scientists have known that the two hemispheres of our brains have different functions. Damage to the left hemisphere in adults has caused severe speech problems. For this reason, the left hemisphere had been considered...
As an Advanced Placement Calculus (APC) teacher I have observed many students struggle with the transition from pre-calculus to calculus. Many of these students were successful in algebra, geometry, and even pre-calculus but the concepts of...
Problem solving -- Education (Elementary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
Mathematical problem solving is a complicated process involving many components.
Here, an historical overview of the study of the effect of problem solving instruction is
presented. The roles of contributing factors, such as the students'...
We present a collection of algorithms which are used to construct Hamiltonian paths
and cycles in hypercube networks with faulty nodes. In graph theoretical terms, the
hypercube is a connected, undirected graph composed of edges and nodes, or...
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...
Math anxiety; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
Numerous studies can be found regarding the development of mathematics anxiety with secondary and college level students. However, little can be found providing evidence of mathematics anxiety in elementary school students. In an attempt to offer...
Mathematical ability -- Sex differences; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
The purpose of this study was to examine how mathematical discourse affects the achievement level of girls across third, fourth, and fifth grades. The Experimental Group sample of 26 students (13 boys, 13 girls) all participated in the Project M³...
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...
With the rules and regulations the federal government has put in place, financial institutions must consistently improve their anti-money laundering programs. Financial institutions use alert monitoring systems to combat a number of money...

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...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Primary) -- Evaluation; Readiness for school; School age (Entrance age)
The age a child should be when beginning formal education has become a focus of interest. How old should a child be? Is there a correlation between age and performance on mathematical strategies? Kindergarten programs have become more knowledge and...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Personality and academic achievement; Prediction of scholastic success
The purpose of this study is to determine if a personality test combined with a mathematics placement test can be used to identify students that may need additional interventions as early in the school year as possible. The school in which this...
Circle; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
The federal law, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), has begun evaluating schools based on Standardized Assessments such as the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT). This has created a need to ensure that student achievement in mathematics reflects the ability...
