Davis, Ernest Kof; Seah, Wee Tiong; Howard, Nathaniel; Wilmot, Eric Magnus – Journal of Global Education and Research, 2021
Valuing constitutes an important aspect of mathematics pedagogy and hence student learning outcomes. This study surveyed 416 students from Cape Coast, Ghana to explore what senior high school students in this country in West Africa valued in their study of mathematics. The data collected were analyzed using principal component analysis. The…

Wilkie, Karina J. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
Teachers whose mathematical meanings support understanding across different contexts are likely to convey them in productive ways for coherent student learning. This exploratory study sought to elicit 67 secondary mathematics pre-service teachers' (PSTs) meanings for quadratics with growing pattern creation and multiple translation tasks. A…

Blackmore, Conner; Hird, Kathryn; Anderton, Ryan S. – International Journal of Higher Education, 2021
Tertiary institutions are experiencing an increased number of enrolments, with students varying in their demographics, previous education, and academic achievement. This relative increase in undergraduate enrolments in Australia has not translated to an increase in student retention or graduate numbers. This prompts the need to explore predictors…

Geisler, Sebastian; Rolka, Katrin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
It is a well-known fact that many students struggle during the transition from school to university mathematics. The aim of our quantitative study was to clarify the role of students' beliefs concerning the nature of mathematics for a successful transition. We distinguish between static beliefs (mathematics as a finished system of rules, facts and…

Hord, Casey; Duppstadt, Marissa; Marita, Samantha; Pescatrice, Stephanie – Journal of Intellectual Disabilities, 2021
In the United States, students with mild intellectual disability (MID) are expected to access the general education curriculum and some of these students are required to pass the same high-stakes exams as students without disabilities. Research supports that students with MID can demonstrate success with mathematics after receiving interventions…

Genareo, Vincent R.; Foegen, Anne; Dougherty, Barbara J.; DeLeeuw, William W.; Olson, Jeannette; Karaman Dundar, Ruveyda – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2021
Although algebra often functions as a gatekeeper to higher-level mathematics courses and higher education admissions, few quality measures exist for assessing conceptual understanding. This study explored the technical adequacy of three procedural and two conceptual algebra screening measures. We administered three rounds of assessments throughout…

Lo, Chung Kwan; Hew, Khe Foon – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2021
The overarching goal of this research project is to develop a set of theoretical and empirical based design principles to support student engagement in flipped mathematics learning. We used a design-based research approach in which a series of studies was conducted in a secondary school. First, an analysis of practical problems was performed via…

Bundock, Kaitlin; Hawken, Leanne S.; Kiuhara, Sharlene A.; O'Keeffe, Breda V.; O'Neill, Robert E.; Cummings, Margarita B. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
Implementing an integrated sequence of concrete-representational-abstract depictions of mathematics concepts (CRA-I) can improve the mathematics achievement of students with disabilities, and explicit instructional strategies involving problem-solving heuristics and student verbalizations can help facilitate students' conceptual understanding of…

Turan, Serife; Matteson, Shirley M. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2021
The 5E instructional model is known for increasing student engagement and participation in the learning process. While viewing the video recorded lessons of middle school mathematics teachers, the researchers noticed teachers had a difficult time implementing the 5E model with fidelity. This case study explored the extent to which mathematics…

Osborne, Jason M.; Cook, William; Bossé, Michael J. – PRIMUS, 2021
In this paper we introduce the reader to a foundational topic of differential geometry: the curvature of a curve. To make this topic engaging to a wide audience of readers, we develop this intuitive introduction employing only basic geometry without calculus and derivatives. It is hoped that this introduction will encourage many more to both…

Jonsdottir, Anna H.; Lentin, Jamie; Calian, Violeta; Hafsteinsson, Eggert K.; Stefansson, Gunnar – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
The tutor-web is an open-source learning environment designed to be used for teaching mathematics and statistics. The system offers thousands of exercises at high school and university level, and has been used for a decade to teach introductory statistics courses with good results. A new component has recently been added to the tutor-web so that…

Moru, Eunice Kolitsoe; Malebanye, Maqoni; Morobe, Nomusic; George, Mosotho Joseph – Journal of Research and Advances in Mathematics Education, 2021
Geometry is among the cornerstones of mathematics because of its applicability in real life and its connection to other areas of mathematics. The reported study explored how the volume of 3D geometric shapes was taught in one high school in Lesotho. One male teacher and an intact class of sixty high school students were the participants of the…

Shelton, Ryann N.; Kerschen, Keith; Wilkerson, Trena L. – School Science and Mathematics, 2021
Because of their brief nature, vignettes are a strategic way to highlight or explore complex instructional practices. Using a qualitative approach, we examined how the use of vignettes in a Vignette Activity Sequence contributed to secondary mathematics preservice teachers' understanding of the Mathematical Practices and the Mathematics Teaching…

Hemmi, Kirsti; Bråting, Kajsa; Lepik, Madis – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2021
The aim of the study is to investigate and compare approaches to algebra in the Estonian, Finnish, and Swedish national core curricula (Grades 1-9). Despite the similarities in the school systems of these neighboring countries, the analysis reveals three quite different curricular approaches. The Estonian approach shows influences of the Russian…

Saritas Akyol, Seyhan; Karakaya, Ismail – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2021
Purpose: To assess students' problem-solving skills, this study aims to investigate the consistency between self- and peer-ratings in consideration of the teachers' ratings in the process. Method: This study was a descriptive study which examines the mathematical problem-solving skills with the MFRM model concerning self-, peer- and teachers'…
