EDC Conducts National Survey on Supporting Struggling Math Learners

Amy Brodesky

EDC is leading a national survey that will provide new insights into the strategies schools and districts are using to support middle grades students who are struggling with mathematics. This April and May, a team led by Amy Brodesky will send the short online survey to a nationally representative sample of over 2,000 public schools in all 50 states.

Learning Math with Your Preschoolers: Fun in the Talking and Playing

Teaser: 

Yen Thieu, an EDC research associate, brings a strong background in early childhood education to her work on the Games for Young Mathematicians research project, an initiative in which she is coordinating a large-scale data collection process, managing extensive datasets, and contributing to data analysis. Currently, Yen is leading three large teams of data collectors who are conducting child assessments in early math knowledge and skills with over 700 preschoolers in Head Start centers. She is also spearheading the communication and dissemination efforts of the project, as well as contributing to the writing of reports and professional development materials. In this post, Yen draws on her experience as a researcher and mother of young children and shares some thoughts about the key role that parents and early childhood teachers can play in promoting children’s long-term successful mathematics learning, as well as some practical tips for parents and teachers.

Correct Answer, Wrong Question: Theory of Mind in a Mathematics Class

Teaser: 

Paul Goldenberg has over 40 years of experience in K–12 mathematics curriculum development, research, and professional development. He leads a wide range of EDC projects that foster a love of and enthusiasm for mathematics in learners from early childhood through adulthood, and has taught self-contained elementary (Grades 2 and 4), middle and high school mathematics, and college and graduate school mathematics and psychology. In this post, part  of a series that invites readers to take a look inside children's mathematics explorations and epiphanies, Paul challenges us to consider whether children are giving us the wrong answers OR we are asking children the wrong questions.
