|Indicators of multiplicative reasoning among fourth grade students
||Many students encounter difficulty in their transition to advanced mathematical thinking. Such difficulty may be explained by a lack of understanding of many concepts taught in early school years, especially multiplicative reasoning. Advanced mathema...
|Aspects of a Lumbee indian community that support successful algebra one students academically in middle grades
||The purpose of this qualitative research study was to examine the aspects of Lumbee Indian community that supports the algebraic achievement of high-achieving Lumbee Indian Algebra 1 middle school students. The study was conducted in a stable, rural ...
|Constructing sample space with combinatorial reasoning: a mixed methods study
||Recent curricular developments suggest that students at all levels need to be statistically literate and able to efficiently and accurately make probabilistic decisions. Furthermore, statistical literacy is a requirement to being a well-informed citi...
|Tasks that promote functional reasoning in early elementary school
||Algebra is often described as the gateway to higher mathematics (Carpenter, Franke, & Levi, 2003; Kaput, 2008; Kaput & Blanton, 2001; Mason, 2008). Unfortunately, many students do not navigate this gateway successfully. Kaput (2008) and Mason (2008) ...
|Conceptualizing routines of practice that support algebraic reasoning in elementary schools: a constructivist grounded theory
||There is ample literature documenting that, for many decades, high school students view algebra as difficult and do not demonstrate understanding of algebraic concepts. Algebraic reasoning in elementary school aims at meaningfully introducing algebra...
