Research Gateway

Welcome to the Research Gateway where you can search reports, articles and research papers from the British Education Index, specifically selected for the NCETM.
Often these are available free of charge, and if so, a download icon () indicates that the item can be immediately downloaded. Alternatively there may be a charge to access certain items.

At the heart of mathematics education is teaching and learning and, as professionals, we strive to develop and improve our practice by increasing our associated knowledge and understanding. One way to achieve this is by reading about what others have learned and there is a vast literature "out there" that is not always easily accessible to practitioners, a problem that the Research Gateway aims to remedy.

Some hints on searching the Research Gateway

If you know what you are looking for, using an author's last name or a keyword from the title will normally locate it quickly. Don't be too specific at this stage as a typing error or different spelling may result in an unsuccessful search. If you are searching for reports, articles or research papers about a specific topic, it is helpful to consider a few related key words before you start. Mathematics topics such as fractions or ratios are fairly obvious but if you are searching for a pedagogical consideration such as questioning it might be better to think about a broader keyword such as formative assessment first.You can also access records which require subscription.

Although the free items are obviously worth looking at first, don't dismiss those that you need to pay for! Anyone who is registered with a UK University may have free access to these through their library and it is possible to request copies from the British Library through your local library at much lower cost than that of the publisher.

  "Give me a lesson and I’ll deliver it": Teaching Assistants’ experiences of leading primary mathematics lessons in England
Teaching Assistants (TAs) in primary schools in England have a growing pedagogic role. For some, this sometimes includes responsibility for the whole class instead of the teacher. This article draws on 24 interview transcripts to...

  "It doesn't seem like work, it seems like good fun": perceptions of primary students on the use of Handheld Game Consoles in mathematics classes
A Chinese proverb suggests ‘Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.’ How to involve or engage today’s learner is at the forefront of much educational research...

  A multidimensional analysis of changes in mathematics motivation and engagement during high school
Despite concerns about declining interest and enrolments in mathematics, little research has examined change in a broad range of constructs reflecting mathematics motivation and engagement. The current study used an 11-factor model of motivation and...

  A study on effective hybrid math teaching strategies
During the computer supported hybrid teaching, teachers face a big challenge to find the suitable teaching strategies for a specific content. In this study, three experiments were conducted to explore the different math teaching strategies...

  Affective tutoring systems in a learning social network
Knowledge societies also named learning social networks allow interaction and collaboration between individuals (instructors and students), who share their connections under a scheme of learning communities around common learning interest. In this paper, we present...

  Analysing proof-related competences in Estonian, Finnish and Swedish mathematics curricula-towards a framework of developmental proof
Many countries are revising their mathematics curriculum in order to elevate the role of proof and argumentation at all school levels and for all student groups. Yet, we have very little research on how proof-related...

  Analyzing content and participation in classroom discourse: dimensions of variation, mediating tools, and conceptual accountability
Balancing content and students' participation in the mathematics classroom is an area of both practical and theoretical interest. In this article we relate and contribute to these two interests by analyzing classroom data from an...

  Are secondary school students still hampered by the natural number bias? A reaction time study on fraction comparison tasks
Rational numbers and particularly fractions are difficult for students. It is often claimed that the ‘natural number bias’ underlies erroneous reasoning about rational numbers. This cross-sectional study investigated the natural number bias in first and...

  Beyond deficit models for integrating language, literacy and numeracy in Australian VET
In light of the perceived new significance to the Australian economy of adult language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills, this paper presents a broad picture of how LLN is being integrated in Australian vocational education...
