The Impact Of Acceleration In Secondary Math On All Students, James Grover
The Impact Of Acceleration In Secondary Math On All Students, James Grover
Theses and Dissertations
Mathematics is a collection of mental practices, attitudes and tools that humans have developed in our quest to understand the world (Singh & Brownwell, 2019). Educators have identified math and reading as the two core subjects that are essential for academic success. Achievement in math is considered to be the one of the most important predictors of economic success (Chazan, 2008). Educational leaders have become increasingly interested in finding the ideal placement for students to gain access to benchmark math curriculum that opens doors for advancement. In a competitive global market, educational and political leaders in the United States have …
Implementing Technology Enhanced Mathematical Instruction In An Algebra I Course To Increase Students’ Academic Achievement In Mathematics, Carlos Marrero
Implementing Technology Enhanced Mathematical Instruction In An Algebra I Course To Increase Students’ Academic Achievement In Mathematics, Carlos Marrero
Theses and Dissertations
In July 2015, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics established its position about the use of technology in teaching and learning mathematics. This important step forward opened a promise for many students and teachers that deserve the excellence of highquality education in one of the most difficult educational subjects. In the 21st century, mathematics education can be one of the greatest recipients of all technological benefits reached by the most advanced societies of the earth.
The purpose of this applied dissertation was to measure the effects in mathematics academic achievement of implementing technologyenhanced mathematical instruction to a group of …
Teacher Graphing Practices For Linear Functions In A CovariationBased College Algebra Classroom, Konda Jo Luckau
Teacher Graphing Practices For Linear Functions In A CovariationBased College Algebra Classroom, Konda Jo Luckau
Theses and Dissertations
Graphing is a fundamental topic in algebra that is notoriously difficult for students. Much of the past research has focused on conceptions and misconceptions. This study extends past research by looking at the mathematical practices of a practitioner, specifically one instructor of a functionbased covariationfocused algebra class in the linear functions unit. Considering practices in addition to conception adds dramatically to our understanding of mathematical activity because it leads to explicit descriptions of normative purposes that are connected to particular situations or problems and also specifies how tools and symbols are coordinated to achieve these purposes. The results of this …
Influence Of ApplicationBased Homework On Students Who Struggle In Algebra I, Charles Seipp
Influence Of ApplicationBased Homework On Students Who Struggle In Algebra I, Charles Seipp
Theses and Dissertations
This investigation describes a problem of practice with the academic achievement of students who struggle in Algebra I by means of an action research design. Students regularly struggle academically for a variety of reasons, as described within and are frequently identified as atrisk due to this struggle. This investigation seeks to determine if the utilization of applicationbased homework serves to increase achievement and student engagement in a course with such significant importance for future success as Algebra I. An example of applicationbased would be the use of specific content outside of the classroom, such as parabolic functions to model projectile …
The Impact Of An Elementary Algebra Course On Student Success In A CollegeLevel Liberal Arts Math Course And Persistence In College, Lori Ann Austin
The Impact Of An Elementary Algebra Course On Student Success In A CollegeLevel Liberal Arts Math Course And Persistence In College, Lori Ann Austin
Theses and Dissertations
Many students enter community college underprepared for collegelevel math and are placed into developmental elementary algebra without consideration if the algebra will provide a foundation for their needed collegelevel math course. Large percentages of those students are unable to succeed in the developmental course and, therefore, are unable to graduate (Bahr, 2008; Bailey, Jeong, & Cho, 2010). This quasiexperimental design focused on students who are not in mathintensive majors, needing only a general liberal arts math course. The purpose was to determine the impact of the elementary algebra course on success in collegelevel math and persistence in college. Student performance …
Secondary Students’ Perceptions Of An Interactive Mathematics Review Program: An Action Research Study, Crystal Burroughs Wingard
Secondary Students’ Perceptions Of An Interactive Mathematics Review Program: An Action Research Study, Crystal Burroughs Wingard
Theses and Dissertations
The present action research study describes an Interactive Mathematics Review Program (IMRP) developed by the participantresearcher to enable remedial algebra students to learn in a cooperative classroom with pedagogy that promoted collaboration and handson, active learning. Data are comprised of surveys, field notes, semistructured interviews, and focus group insights about the IMRP over an 8week period in the spring of 2017 at a southern, lowsocioeconomic status high school. Findings include: (1) greater comprehension; (2) increased engagement and mathrelated discussions; (3) increased motivation; (4) egalitarian principles; and (5) highquality reciprocity. A ninestep action plan designed to enable other math teachers at …
Developing Conceptual Understanding And Procedural Fluency In Algebra For High School Students With Intellectual Disability, Andrew J. Wojcik
Developing Conceptual Understanding And Procedural Fluency In Algebra For High School Students With Intellectual Disability, Andrew J. Wojcik
Theses and Dissertations
Teaching students with Intellectual Disability (ID) is a relatively new endeavor. Beginning in 2001 with the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act, the general education curriculum integrated algebra across the K12 curriculum (Kendall, 2011; National Governors Association Center for Best Practices & Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010), and expansion of the curriculum included five intertwined skills (productive disposition, procedural fluency, strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, and conceptual understanding) (Kilpatrick, Swafford, & Findell, 2001). Researchers are just beginning to explore the potential of students with ID with algebra (Browder, Spooner, AhlgrimDelzell, Harris & Wakeman, 2008; CreechGalloway, Collins, Knight, …
Teaching Algebra Through Functional Programming:An Analysis Of The Bootstrap Curriculum, Robert Lee
Teaching Algebra Through Functional Programming:An Analysis Of The Bootstrap Curriculum, Robert Lee
Theses and Dissertations
Bootstrap is a computerprogramming curriculum that teaches students to program video games using Racket, a functional programming language based on algebraic syntax. This study investigated the relationship between learning to program video games from a Bootstrap course and the resulting effect on students' understanding of algebra. Courses in three different schools, lasting about six weeks each, were studied. Control and treatment groups were given a pre and post algebra assessment. A qualitative component consisting of observations and interviews was also used to further triangulate findings. Statistical analysis revealed that students who completed the Bootstrap course gained a significantly better understanding …
