Ah! Now I see: the literacy demands of mathematics problems in the early years
Exley, Beryl E. (2008) Ah! Now I see: the literacy demands of mathematics problems in the early years. Curriculum Leadership: An electronic journal of leaders in education, 6(33).
Recent research undertaken at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane explored the literacies of mathematics problems in the early years. Dr Beryl Exley, lecturer in language and literacy education, and Keiran Abel, a recent QUT graduand, used Halliday's (1990) functional grammar to analyse the literacies of mathematics problems in the early years. Their study was undertaken in two parts: firstly, an examination of six worded mathematical problems; and, secondly, an examination of the reading alternatives of the accompanying pictures.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
