The intent of this study was to analyze the effects of differentiated math instruction on confidence of first-grade students. In addition, math achievement of students was also assessed. Anecdotal notes were kept which focused on students'...
Mastering math facts in all operations can be difficult and non-engaging for students. However, math fact fluency is crucial to helping students learn more difficult math skills. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the impact...
In this mixed methods action research study, the researcher examined the effects of using guided math instructional practices on the fact fluency, self-efficacy, math anxiety, and overall math achievement of a group of second grade students. The...
This quantitative study was designed because the researcher's incoming third grade students were unable to proficiently solve basic math facts. Time was not allotted in the day for direct instruction on basic math fact computation in order for...
The purpose of this quantitative action research study was to determine the impact of students' written explanations demonstrating their conceptual understanding of math problem-solving on students' math performance and their perceptions of their...
The purpose of this action research study was to determine how retesting for mastery of skills affects students' achievement in mathematics. Retesting for mastery of skills is a program that requires students to attain specific proficiency on math...
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a guided math curriculum on first grade students' addition fact fluency achievement, as well as their engagement and self-efficacy. The participants in this study were a group of eighteen...
The purpose of this mixed methods study was to investigate the relationship between the integration of math problem-solving strategies and the self-efficacy of fifth grade students in the application of math concepts. Eleven fifth grade students...
My students were not achieving at the desired levels on math screeners and math assessments. I felt that I needed to infuse the Cognitively Guiding Instruction (CGI) model into the math curriculum to increase academic achievement. This provided the...
The purpose of this 18-week quantitative study was to determine the impact of physical activity breaks, implemented during a 60-minute math period, on the math achievement of fourth grade students. The physical activity breaks were simple bodily...
The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of math fact intervention on student achievement. A two-minute timed multiplication fact test was given to 45 sixth-grade students to determine a control group of students who demonstrated...
Classrooms are filled with students with a wide variety of abilities and special needs. As a teacher I need to be able to meet these individual needs of each and every student. The students, parents, administration, school board, state, and...
The purpose of this eighteen-week quantitative action research study was to examine the impact of departmentalized instruction on the reading and math performance of fourth and fifth grade students. The students participating in this study were...
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of goal setting on student achievement in reading and math and on student engagement in reading and math. Baseline data were collected using the STAR (Renaissance Learning, 2015) assessment...
Math homework that is incomplete, copied, or not done with suitable effort is not benefiting students with the necessary practice they need to exercise new math concepts. Therefore, I investigated a variety of effective strategies that could be...
In this mixed-method action research study the researcher found that second grade students needed the math curriculum to be matched to their needs and learning styles in order to maximize their learning and ability to generalize mathematics...
I identified that many of my students were not engaged in their learning, and they did not demonstrate the development of math fact fluency skills. The observations in my classroom led me to research how to incorporate daily physical activity...
This action research study examined the impact of cognitively guided instruction (CGI), including number talks, number strings, and dot cards on first grade students' math MAP scores. The motivation for this study was to examine possible ways to...
A problem identified in my school was that students were coming into sixth grade with many gaps in their mathematics education; the biggest was not knowing their math facts. Knowledge of math facts is a necessity because even if you understand the...
The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of accuracy and automaticity of third grade students' multiplication facts. The participants in this study were a group of seventeen third grade students who were enrolled in the researchers'...
