Loong, Esther Yook-Kin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
This paper presents the results of a survey conducted with students (N=97) whose teachers have used the Web in their mathematics classes. The survey looked at students' attitudes towards learning mathematics and their responses to the use of the Internet for learning mathematics. Factor analyses were used to determine the constructs that underlie…

Wairia, Dennis; Pinder, Patrice Juliet – Online Submission, 2008
This activity discusses a unit exercise in which a physics practical was implemented during a laboratory session. The lab practical design was centered on Newton's Second Law. The practical was implemented in a high school setting. Further, through the administration of both a pre and post test we were able to assess the effectiveness of the lab…

Radford, Luis; Demers, Serge; Guzman, Jose; Cerulli, Michele – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
In this paper we deal with the problem of the genetic relationship between the sensual and the conceptual in knowledge formation. Transcript and videotape analyses of two small groups of a regular Grade 11 mathematics class shed some light on the dialectics between semiotic activity and artefact-mediated kinesthetic actions. The analyses point to…

Reading, Chris; Lawrie, Christine – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
The increased use of group work in teaching and learning has seen an increased need for knowledge about assessment of group work. This report considers exploratory research where the SOLO Taxonomy, previously used to analyse the quality of individual responses, is applied to group responses. The responses were created as part of an activity…

Radford, Luis; Demers, Serge; Guzman, Jose; Cerulli, Michele – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2003
In this paper we report an analysis of a teaching sequence in which Grade 11 students were asked to produce some graphs corresponding to the relationship between time and distance of a cylinder moving up and down an inclined plane. The students were also asked to carry out the experience using a TI 83+ graphic calculator equipped with a sensor,…

Nisbet, Steven – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2003
This paper explores the role of organising data in representing numerical data in an organised way--a skill which does not come naturally to most students. Grade 6 children were given a series of lessons on organising data and then representing the data graphically. It was found that after instruction, more students were able to reorganise the…
