Nakakoji, Yoshitaka; Wilson, Rachel – Education Sciences, 2018

Transfer of mathematical learning to science is seen as critical to the development of education and industrial societies, yet it is rarely interrogated in applied research. We present here research looking for evidence of transfer from university mathematics learning in semester one to second semester sciences/engineering courses (n = 1125). A…

Niss, Mogens; Bruder, Regina; Planas, Núria; Turner, Ross; Villa-Ochoa, Jhony Alexander – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016

This paper presents the outcomes of the work of the ICME 13 Survey Team on "Conceptualisation and the role of competencies, knowing and knowledge in mathematics education research". It surveys a variety of historical and contemporary views and conceptualisations of what it means to master mathematics, focusing on notions such as…

Moffett, Pamela; Eaton, Patricia – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2018

It is widely acknowledged that the transition from informal, everyday knowledge to formal, school-taught knowledge is a critically important stage in children's mathematical development. Research highlights the importance of making connections between the different representations of mathematics and the value of children's own mathematical…

Radakovic, Nenad; Jagger, Susan; Jao, Limin – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018

In this article, we explore the reading and writing of mathematical poetry from our experiences as mathematics teacher educators. First, we outline how our own engagement with mathematical poetry encouraged us to incorporate it into our teaching of pre-service teachers. We describe how our initial disappointment with the mathematical content of…

Tucker, Stephen I.; Lommatsch, Christina W.; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.; Anderson-Pence, Katie L.; Symanzik, Jürgen – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2017

The purpose of this study was to examine patterns of mathematical practices evident during children's interactions with touchscreen mathematics virtual manipulatives. Researchers analyzed 33 Kindergarten children's interactions during activities involving apps featuring mathematical content of early number sense or quantity in base ten, recorded…

Hoogland, Kees; Tout, Dave – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

In recent decades, technology has influenced various aspects of assessment in mathematics education: (1) supporting the assessment of higher-order thinking skills in mathematics, (2) representing authentic problems from the world around us to use and apply mathematical knowledge and skills, and (3) making the delivery of tests and the analysis of…

DeLay, Dawn; Laursen, Brett; Kiuru, Noona; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija; Aunola, Kaisa – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2016

This study investigated friend influence over mathematics achievement in 202 same-sex friendship dyads (106 girl dyads). Participants were in the third grade (around age 9) at the outset. Each friend completed a questionnaire describing interest in mathematics and a standardized mathematical reasoning assessment. Peer nominations provided a…

Haara, Frode Olav – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018

Emphasis on the development of the inner qualities thought to make up pedagogical entrepreneurship and use of such entrepreneurship as a strategy in mathematics teaching and learning could be expected to strengthen students' development of mathematical literacy. This is because problem solving, local cultures and resources, authenticity and action…

Hiebert, James; Berk, Dawn; Miller, Emily; Gallivan, Heather; Meikle, Erin – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2019

We investigated whether the mathematics studied in 2 content courses of an elementary teacher preparation program was retained and used by graduates when completing tasks measuring knowledge for teaching mathematics. Using a longitudinal design, we followed 2 cohorts of prospective teachers for 3 to 4 years after graduation. We assessed…

Astawa, I. Wayan Puja; Budayasa, I. Ketut; Juniati, Dwi – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

This research aims to describe the process of student cognition in constructing mathematical conjecture. Many researchers have studied this process but without giving a detailed explanation of how students understand the information to construct a mathematical conjecture. The researchers focus their analysis on how to construct and prove the…

Foster, Colin – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018

Achieving fluency in important mathematical procedures is fundamental to students' mathematical development. The usual way to develop procedural fluency is to practise repetitive exercises, but is this the only effective way? This paper reports three quasi-experimental studies carried out in a total of 11 secondary schools involving altogether 528…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015

The work that mathematics teachers do is frequently mathematical in nature and different from other professions. Understanding and describing common ways that teachers draw upon their content knowledge in the practice of teaching is important. Building on the descriptions by McCrory et al. ("Journal for Research in Mathematics Education"…

Maciejewski, Wes; Barton, Bill – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2016

Originating from interviews with mathematics colleagues, written accounts of mathematicians engaging with mathematics, and Wes's reflections on his own mathematical work, we describe a process that we call mathematical foresight: the imagining of a resolution to a mathematical situation and a path to that resolution. In a sense, mathematical…
