Abstract

This paper reports on the analysis of a study of a professional learning intervention focusing on computational estimation. Using a multiple case study design it was possible to describe the impact of the intervention of students’ beliefs and computational estimation performance. The study revealed some noteworthy impacts on computational estimation performance and that beliefs were altered to a lesser extent.
