Wiest, Lynda; Amankonah, Frank O. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper reports the performance of 30 rising seventh-grade girls on a task in which they were asked to order four fractions from least to greatest. Less than three-fifths attained correct answers. The performance gap was widest between students who attended Title I schools and those who did not, the latter being much more likely to attain…
