Ernst, Heather – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
In this paper, the probability content in senior secondary mathematics Victorian curriculum between 1978 and 2016 was classified and compared, by content, context, procedural complexity, the SOLO thinking frameworks and use of technology. While probability continues to form an important and increasing component of the curriculum, it has moved from…

Scheiner, Thorsten – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This paper presents a new theoretical viewpoint blended from the perspectives that mathematical meaning is extracted (from objects falling under a particular concept) and that mathematical meaning is given (to objects that an individual interacts with). It is elaborated that neither uni-directional framing (whether involving extracting meaning or…

Czocher, Jennifer; Stillman, Gloria; Brown, Jill – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Verification and validation are essential aspects of mathematics and beyond in STEM, but these constructs are not consistently defined in research nor in curricula documents. In this theoretical paper, we argue that verification and validation are largely characterized as binary judgments by teachers and researchers about what students do. We then…

Jamil, Siti Baizura; Ghazali, Munirah – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This paper explores what we can learn from research that early cognitive processes support the development of children's mathematics skills. The role of two cognitive processes in working memory in the development of early mathematics was investigated: executive functions (EF) and visual-spatial (VS) ability. Children's mathematical skills were…

McCluskey, Catherine; Mulligan, Joanne; Van Bergen, Penny – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This position paper proposes that a relationship between young children's embodied mathematical concepts and their awareness of mathematical pattern and structure (AMPS) (Mulligan & Mitchelmore, 2009) develops through play. Theoretical perspectives on the development of schematic patterns, the embodiment of mathematical understandings, and the…

Wilkinson, Jane; Bristol, Laurette Maria Stacy; Heikkinen, Hannu Lauri Tapio – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
Employing Jurgen Habermas's notions of communicative and strategic action (1984), this paper draws on case studies of principals' decision making practices in three sites of Finland, Australia and Jamaica. The research examined principals' understandings of educational autonomy as a part of their practices of decision making. The paper argues that…

Boubekki, Ahcène; Jain, Shailee; Brefeld, Ulf – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2018
Analyzing user behavior in electronic textbooks offers appealing insights into how pupils interact with the book and internalize the content. Using these insights may help to personalize the book, e.g., to support users with special educational needs. Conventional approaches often focus on atomic, user-triggered events like clicks or scrolls. In…

Nguyen, Huy; Liew, Chun Wai – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2018
Recent works on Intelligent Tutoring Systems have focused on more complicated knowledge domains, which pose challenges in automated assessment of student performance. In particular, while the system can log every user action and keep track of the student's solution state, it is unable to determine the hidden intermediate steps leading to such…
