#### Development of State-Level **Mathematics** Curriculum Documents: Report of a Survey

(Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum, 2005-03)

Recent federal initiatives, most notably the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation,
have exerted substantial influence on state and local decision-making. One element of
the educational system that has been affected ...

#### Computational neural models at molecular, cellular and behavioral levels : three case studies

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)

Biological findings from molecular, cellular and behavior levels can be difficult to understand functions. Computational tools and systems concepts facilitate integration of information across levels to further understanding ...

#### Functions in contemporary secondary **mathematics** textbook series in the United States

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)

Textbooks play a central role in US

**mathematics**classrooms (Stein, Remillard, & Smith, 2007) and functions are a key topic in secondary**mathematics**(Carlson, Jacobs, Coe, Larsen, & Hsu, 2002). This study presents results from an analysis...#### Secondary **mathematics** teachers' informal inferential reasoning : the role of knowledge structures for measures of center, spread and shape

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

This study examined middle and secondary

**mathematics**teachers' knowledge structures, informal inferential reasoning (IIR), and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) for statistics. Using task-based clinical interviews (Goldin, 1997) and cross...#### The nonsymbolic quantitative rudiments of **mathematics** proficiency in early childhood

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

). In this paper, I will review the research on number and area discrimination ability in early childhood and the influence of these nonsymbolic quantitative abilities on early symbolic

**mathematics**proficiency. Preliminary results from a longitudinal study...#### Effects of literacy environmental factors on fourth graders' **mathematics**-related outcomes in Finland

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)

-concept, and attitude toward

**mathematics**. The data used in this study were from Finland at the fourth grade level in the Trends in International**Mathematics**and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011 and the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) 2011. Multiple...#### K-12 **Mathematics**: What Should Students Learn and When Should They Learn it?

(2007-02)

In the fall of 2006 several influential national groups (Achieve, American Statistical Association, College Board, and the National Council of Teachers of

**Mathematics**) developed and released documents that recommended curriculum standards or focal...#### Examination of the levels of Cogitive Demand Required by Probability Tasks in Middle Grades **Mathematics** Textbooks

(Statistics Education Research Journal (SERJ), 2007-11)

We analyze probability content within middle grades (6, 7, and 8) mathematics
textbooks from a historical perspective. Two series, one popular and the other
alternative, from four recent eras of mathematics education ...

#### Facilitating emergent bilingual's participation in **mathematics** : an examination of a teacher's positioning acts

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)

This study examined the

**mathematical**learning opportunities provided to Latinx emergent bilinguals (EBs) in an elementary classroom. I used positioning theory (Rom Harre & van Langenhove, 1999b) to examine the acts of one third-grade teacher, Ms...#### Online video-based reflection to improve professional vision and **mathematical** beliefs for teaching

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)

. In the study, twenty-six preservice elementary school teachers participated as part of their coursework. For six weeks, participants had reflected on video about

**mathematical**learning and teaching in wikis. During the first three weeks, individual reflection...#### Average Normalisations of Elliptic Curves

(Australian Mathematical Society, 2002)

Ciet, Quisquater, and Sica have recently shown that every elliptic curve E over a finite field Fp is isomorphic to a curve y2 = x3 +ax+b
with a and b of size O(p3/4). In this paper, we show that almost all elliptic curves ...

#### Sequences of rank-1 projections and Gabor tight fusion frames

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

This dissertation provides new results in two areas. The first part concerns the particular properties that are inherited by a sequence of rank-1 projections from the inducing sequence of unit-norm vectors. The second part ...

#### A sublinear version of the Schur Test and weighted norm inequalities

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

In this dissertation, we provide results which characterize when a class of partial differential equations can be solved. These partial differential equations arise in the study of the Porous Media Equation, which can model ...

#### Facilitating the development of elementary prospective teachers' pedagogical content knowledge : a case study of a **mathematics** teacher educator's actions and purposes

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)

Prospective

**mathematics**teachers (PTs) need to develop pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) to improve the teaching and learning of**mathematics**. Therefore,**mathematics**teacher educators (MTEs) need to help PTs develop PCK (Marks, 1990; Mason, 2008...#### The effects of animated agents with verbal audio on **mathematics** comprehension and attitudes towards **mathematics** and computers

(American Mathematical Society, 2004)

We show that if the norm of an idempotent Schur multiplier on the Schatten class Sp lies sufficiently close to 1, then it is necessarily equal to 1. We also give a simple characterization of those idempotent Schur multipliers ...
