Tekin-Sitrava, Reyhan; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2018

This study investigated middle school teachers' knowledge of students' misconceptions and the sources of these misconceptions related to the volume of prisms. This case study investigated four middle school teachers who taught 8th grade students in Ankara (Turkey). Based on the analysis of the data, two misconceptions related to the volume of…

Richardson, Alice; Ascione, Judith; Barker, Valerie – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2015

In many parts of the world, Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (3.14), but because of the day-month ordering of dates in Australia, and because March is very close to the start of the academic year, Australians prefer to celebrate Pi (Approximation) Day on 22 July (22/7). Thirty-eight Year 8 students (aged 13-14 years) from two local high schools in…

The authors are a team of teachers and teacher educators who are deeply interested in helping mathematically-challenged students improve in their learning of mathematics. In Singapore, depending on their performance at the end of a nationwide Year 6 examination, students are channelled into three ability streams for Years 7 to 10: Express (60%),…

Nivens, Ryan – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2013

Some people recognize a palindrome when they see one, however fewer realize that a palindrome is a special case of a pattern and that these patterns are all around. Palindromes frequently occur in names, both of vehicles and people, and in music. The traditional mathematical curriculum has often left palindromes out of the common vernacular. Where…

Loong, Esther Yook-Kin – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2011

This case study describes an "out of field" teacher's use of the Internet to teach a range of mathematical topics in a modified Year 8 mathematics class. It highlights the importance of three factors for implementing a discernible web-based teaching strategy: appropriate choice of web objects, effective "virtual" pedagogy, and technical support…

Byers, Terry – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2009

This article discusses the "BASICS" or "Building Accuracy and Speed In Core Skills" Mathematics Intervention Program which has been designed to enable students who are either low-achievers or have some form of learning disability, to attain real improvement and make the successful transition to core mathematics. The "BASICS" Intervention Program…

Stacey, Kaye; Vincent, Jill – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2009

Learning about the area formulas provides many opportunities for students even at the beginning of junior secondary school to experience mathematical deduction. For example, in easy cases, students can put two triangles together to make a rectangle, and so deduce that the area of a triangle is half the area of a corresponding rectangle. They can…

Vincent, Jill; Stacey, Kaye – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2009

An important message teachers convey to their students is that mathematics is founded on reasoning and is not just a collection of rules to apply. Many mathematical rules such as area formulas can be derived in ways that are age-appropriate to students, and it is an important part of mathematics education that students engage in these derivations…
