Kartal, Ozgul; Dunya, Beyza Aksu; Diefes-Dux, Heidi A.; Zawojewski, Judith S. – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
Critical to many science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career paths is mathematical modeling--specifically, the creation and adaptation of mathematical models to solve problems in complex settings. Conventional standardized measures of mathematics achievement are not structured to directly assess this type of mathematical…

Kamaliyah; Zulkardi; Darmawijoyo – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2013
Indonesia's involvement in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is one attempt to see how far the development of educational programs in our country compared to other countries in the world. PISA results show that Indonesia is still at the lower level. This means that the ability of Indonesian students in solving problems that…

Bergsten, Christer; Engelbrecht, Johann; Kågesten, Owe – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
One challenge for an optimal design of the mathematical components in engineering education curricula is to understand how the procedural and conceptual dimensions of mathematical work can be matched with different demands and contexts from the education and practice of engineers. The focus in this paper is on how engineering students respond to…

Ransome, Myrna; Mohamed, Musa El Sharief; Bridgemohan, Puran – World Journal of Education, 2016
The colonial fallacy that only a few persons are endowed with the capabilities to conceptualize mathematics, coupled with the belief that society equates mathematical ability with intellectual superiority, have contributed to low levels of mathematical self-concept and achievement among some students of mathematics. Some of these students are…

Gravemeijer, Koeno; Stephan, Michelle; Julie, Cyril; Lin, Fou-Lai; Ohtani, Minoru – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper attempts to engage the field in a discussion about what mathematics is needed for students to engage in society, especially with an increase in technology and digitalization. In this respect, mathematics holds a special place in STEM as machines do most of the calculations that students are taught in K-12. We raise questions about what…

Valero, Paola – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2018
The title of my contribution to this special 10th year anniversary issue contains the terms "human capitals"--and there is not a spelling mistake--"school mathematics," "making," and "homus oeconomicus." Apparently, the terms do not say much about mathematics and its learning and teaching, but more about the…
