Abstract This study presents a patterning intervention for 5-year-olds, who were in their third year of preschool in Flanders (Belgium), with two key elements: A focus on the structure of patterns, and the inclusion of growing patterns (e.g., ABAABAAAB) in addition to repeating patterns (e.g., ABABAB). We evaluated the impact of this intervention on patterning and numerical ability in a quasi-experimental pretest-intervention-posttest design with a business-as-usual control group. The interventi...

Computational estimation is seen as an important mathematical competence. Little is known, however, about the mathematical skills that are predictive of early computational estimation development. The current study longitudinally followed a group of about 350 children at four time points: second (K2, 4-year-olds) and third grades of kindergarten (K3, 5-year-olds) and first (P1, 6-year-olds) and second (P2, 7-year-olds) grades of primary school. The computational estimation task was administered ...

Abstract Proportional reasoning is one part of mathematics that is particularly hard to apprehend for children. At the same time, research suggests that already at an early age children develop an ability to make sense of some proportional situations. Previous research has shown that language – be it language in general or language related to mathematics – plays a crucial role in mathematical thinking and learning. The domain of proportional reasoning involves highly content-specific vocabulary ...

The nature of the arithmetic word problems found in maths textbooks influences the way students develop their ability to solve them, as teachers use the books in their classes quite frequently. Giv...
