Wilson, Aaron T.; Grigorian, Sergey – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
College students may be seen as near-peers to high school students and high school students are often able to see themselves in the college students who are but one step ahead. This nearness in maturity and educational level may place college students in a particularly powerful position when it comes to reaching out to high school students to…

Güler, Mustafa; Çelik, Derya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
There is a growing emphasis in the teaching profession on pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) as an important knowledge component. The study reported in this article investigates Turkish prospective mathematics teachers' mathematics teaching knowledge in the numbers content domain. A series of 10 open-ended scenario-type questions were adopted to…

Patkin, Dorit; Plaksin, Olga – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
In this study, we aim to explore the extent of mathematics pre-service teachers' ability to apply their procedural understanding combined with spatial perception for drawing conceptual conclusions related to angles in a pyramid. The participants are 16 pre-service high school mathematics teachers. They have studied solid geometry during one…

Koparan, Timur – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The Fatih Project in Turkey has improved software in mathematics teaching such as data analysis software. As a result, the need to inquire into the efficiency of computer-supported learning environments has emerged. This study aims to examine the effect of dynamic data analysis software-supported learning environments on secondary school students'…

Ngu, Bing Hiong – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Solution representations can reveal how problem solvers communicate mathematical thinking and reasoning in problem-solving process. The present study examined the solution representations used by 20 pre-service teachers for the percentage change problems. The pre-service teachers were invited to solve a combination of simple and complex percentage…

Santos-Trigo, Manuel; Reyes-Martínez, Isaid – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The aim of this study was to characterize and discuss ways of reasoning that prospective high school mathematics teachers develop and exhibit in a problem-solving scenario that involves the coordinated use of digital technologies. A conceptual framework that includes Virtual Learning Spaces (VLS) and Resources, Activities, Support and Evaluation…

Palatnik, Alik; Sigler, Avi – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The introduction of auxiliary elements as a method of solving problems in high-school geometry is considered here from two perspectives: first, to elicit recalling some known result or concretizing a definition and, second, as a means of shifting the focus and structure of the students' attention. We present and compare various examples of how…

Barahmand, Ali – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This article seeks to explore the most important obstacles of inflexibility in mathematics teachers' behaviour in accepting new ideas, especially, while encountering a new situation. In so doing, the concept of equivalence between infinite sets, which is one of the challenging issues in mathematics teaching and learning, was selected as the…

Nortvedt, Guri A.; Siqveland, Arvid – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Are students transitioning from the secondary level to university studies in mathematics and engineering adequately prepared for education at the tertiary level? In this study, we discuss the prior mathematical knowledge and skills demonstrated by Norwegian engineering ("N" = 1537) and calculus ("N" = 626) university students…

Mohammad, Abdul Moeed – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
We explore students choice of using computer algebra systems (CAS) in problem-solving relative to their self-reported attitude towards learning mathematics with CAS. Our research design is a case study of nine Norwegian upper-secondary mathematics students with a wide range of attitude towards CAS. Our findings on routine problems indicate that…

Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo; Rivera-López, Martha Iris; García-García, Javier – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper reports the results of a research exploring the mathematical connections of pre-university students while they solving tasks which involving rates of change. We assume mathematical connections as a cognitive process through which a person finds real relationships between two or more ideas, concepts, definitions, theorems, procedures,…

Gilboa, Nava; Kidron, Ivy; Dreyfus, Tommy – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
We analyze the process of constructing a definition within the theoretical framework of "Abstraction in Context." Pairs of students were engaged in a task designed to engender a need for a definition of a tangent to a graph at a given point, and lead to constructing a definition following that need. The results of our analysis point to…

Avcu, Ramazan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
In this study, I analyzed and compared definitions of special quadrilaterals presented in the US and Turkish secondary school mathematics textbooks. To this end, seven textbooks from each country were examined based on the following features of mathematical definitions: form of presentation and mathematical correctness, minimality, the nature of…
