Akayuure, Peter; Asiedu-Addo, S. K.; Alebna, Victor – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Whereas origami is said to have pedagogical benefits in geometry education, research is inclusive about its effect on spatial ability and geometric knowledge among preservice teachers. The study investigated the effect of origami instruction on these aspects using pretest posttest quasi-experiment design. The experimental group consisted of 52…

Roux, Annalie; Nieuwoudt, Hercules; Nieuwoudt, Susan – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2015
It is a known fact that South African learners underachieve in mathematics. One possible factor that might have an influence on their mathematics achievement is the conceptual knowledge of mathematics teachers. In order to facilitate conceptual understanding, mathematics teachers themselves must possess profound mathematical knowledge. One key…
