Spurious correlations in mathematical thinking
 Cognition and Instruction
, 2001
"... How does detection of correlational structure affect mathematical thinking and learning? When does correlational information lead to erroneous problem solving? Are experienced students susceptible to misleading correlations? This work attempts to answer these questions by examining a source of sy ..."

Statistical Literacy And Mathematical Thinking
 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MATHEMATICS EDUCATION (ICME)
, 2000
"... Statistical Literacy, the study of statistics
as evidence in arguments, is proposed as a new
course – a bridging course to better prepare students
for the traditional statistics course. Statistical Literacy
can also be a standalone course with its focus on
observational studies and confounding fact ..."

factors. The
mathematics involved in statistical inference of traditional
statistics are reviewed. Causes of student difficulties
are located in two areas: conditional probability
and the relation between chance and confounding.
These two problems are related to two areas of
mathematical thinking
Mathematical Thinking in Chemistry
"... Abstract: Mathematical chemistry is often thought to be a 20thcentury subdiscipline of chemistry, but in this paper we discuss several early chemical ideas and some landmarks of chemistry as instances of the mathematical way of thinking; many of them before 1900. By the mathematical way of thinki ..."

Harboring Mathematical Thinking In The Middle
, 2006
"... In this action research study of my classroom of 8th grade mathematics, I investigated the use of daily warmups written in problemsolving format. Data was collected to determine if use of such warmups would have an effect on students ’ abilities to problem solve, their overall attitudes regarding ..."

LEADERS IN MATHEMATICAL THINKING AND LEARNING
"... The name of Zoltan P. Dienes (1916 – ) stands with those of Jean Piaget, Jerome Bruner, Edward Begle, and Robert Davis as a legendary figure whose work left a lasting impression on the field of mathematics education. Dienes ’ name is synonymous with the multibase blocks that he invented for the tea ..."
