Berenger, Adrian – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Developing students' geometric reasoning skills is dependent on the quality of task designs and the role of the teacher. The purpose of this study was to apply Sfard's (2008) interpretive framework to analyse changes in students' mathematical discourse. This paper reports on the results of an investigation into the ways one class of Year 7…

O'Keeffe, Lisa; White, Bruce; Panizzon, Debra; Elliott, Katrina; Semmens, Alex – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Studies, such as Programme for International Student Assessment 2012, indicate that there are gender based differences in measures of mathematics anxiety, self-concept and self-efficacy among students. In this study we explore self-efficacy, self-concept and mathematics anxiety in a sample of Year 7 and 8 South Australian students to examine if…

Pearn, Catherine; Stephens, Max; Pierce, Robyn – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This paper will focus on two students who depended on diagrammatic representations in both a Fraction Screening Test and in a subsequent Structured Interview. One student attempted to use diagrams, with limited success, to identify the correct relationships, and consequently struggled to generalise her strategies as she responded to the questions…

Patahuddin, Sitti; Logan, Tracy; Ramful, Ajay – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This paper attempted to make explicit some of the underlying characteristics of spatial visualisation using the concept of area of composite shapes. By engaging students with metric-free tasks, we identify the type of perceptual and visual/spatial manoeuvres that they deploy in such situations. Interview data collected from three students in Grade…

Murphy, Steve – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
There is national and international pressure for schools to increase student engagement and skills in more challenging mathematics, in particular for disadvantaged students. This study repurposes school level data to examine patterns of participation and achievement in advanced year 12 mathematics. It confirms that school socio-economic status…

Choy, Ban Heng; Dindyal, Jaguthsing – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Teachers have several challenges when designing and implementing mathematically-rich tasks, and hence, these tasks are not prevalent in many mathematics classrooms. Instead, teachers often use "typical problems," such as standard textbook tasks and examination questions, to develop students' procedural fluency. This begs the question of…

Chan, Man Ching Esther; Clarke, David – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
This paper reports a study conducted in a laboratory classroom with the capability to record classroom social interactions in great detail using advanced video technology. The social interactions of student groups during collaborative problem solving were analysed based on transcript data. This analysis suggests that meaning negotiation in…

Forrester, Tricia; Sandison, Carolyn E.; Denny, Sue – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Excellent mathematics teachers establish learning environments that encourage students to actively engage with mathematics and foster co-operative and collaborative learning. Whiteboarding, using an erasable surface on which to work and share ideas, has been shown to increase student engagement, collaboration, and higher-order thinking. We report…

Hine, Gregory – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
In this research paper, I present the reasons why senior secondary students elect not to enrol in a higher mathematics course. All Year 11 and Year 12 mathematics students within Western Australian secondary schools were invited to participate in an online survey comprised chiefly of qualitative items. The key reasons espoused by students include…

Forgasz, Helen; Leder, Gilah – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Declining enrolments in advanced level mathematics at the school level are noted with concern. Whether school type (single-sex school or co-education) affects participation in mathematics continues to be debated. In this article we examine, by school type and gender, statistical data from 2001 to 2015 on Victorian Certificate of Education…

FitzSimons, Gail – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "transition" as: (a) the passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another: change; or (b) a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another. The word transition can refer to an active shift of the person in space and time or status, for example; it can also…

Angateeah, Khemduth Singh; Thapermall, Savial; Jawahir, Ravi – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The aim of this qualitative study is to embed ICT in the teaching and learning of A-level vectors. Initially, students' learning difficulties and misconceptions in A-level vectors were diagnosed. Then, based on the difficulties identified, concepts in vectors together with interactive tools were developed and integrated in a webpage to enhance the…

Winarti, Destina Wahyu; Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
In this paper, we undertake a content analysis of mathematics assessment tasks to understand how often graphical representations are embedded within high-stakes national and international tests. A total of 274 items were analysed, consisting of 160 Grade 9 UN items, 88 Grade 8 TIMSS items, and 26 PISA items. Analysis showed that all items in the…

Muir, Tracey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Flipped learning is gaining in popularity as a teaching approach in secondary mathematics classrooms. Traditionally seen as the domain of tertiary teaching, flipped learning has a number of affordances that address the challenging demands of teaching secondary mathematics. Enacting this approach requires a reconceptualization of traditional…

Burfitt, Joan – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Multiple-choice items are used in large-scale assessments of mathematical achievement for secondary students in many countries. Research findings can be implemented to improve the quality of the items and hence increase the amount of information gathered about student learning from each item. One way to achieve this is to create items for which…
