Leviatan, Talma – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2008
There has been a broad wave of change in tertiary calculus courses in the past decade. However, the much-needed change in tertiary pre-calculus programmes--aimed at bridging the gap between high-school mathematics and tertiary mathematics--is happening at a far slower pace. Following a discussion on the nature of the gap and the objectives of a…

Small, Marian; Lin, Amy – Teachers College Press, 2010
Teachers know that Differentiated Instruction (DI) helps all students to learn. Yet DI challenges teachers, and nowhere more than in mathematics. In this new book, written specifically for secondary mathematics teachers, the authors cut through the difficulties with two powerful and universal strategies that teachers can use across all math…

Miller, Ben – Education Sector, 2010
The National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT), a small nonprofit considered to be the intellectual center of the technology-based course transformation movement, has labored mightily and with much success to help more colleges bring their undergraduate courses into the modern age. But it has labored precisely because colleges have yet to…

Butler, Melanie; Pyzdrowski, Laura; Goodykoontz, Adam; Walker, Vennessa – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2008
Online homework is unable to provide the detailed feedback of paper and pencil assignments. However, immediate feedback is an advantage that online assessments provide. A research study was conducted that focused on the effects of immediate feedback; students in 5 sections of a Pre-calculus course were participants. Three sections were randomly…

Weber, Eric David – ProQuest LLC, 2012
This dissertation describes an investigation of four students' ways of thinking about functions of two variables and rate of change of those two-variable functions. Most secondary, introductory algebra, pre-calculus, and first and second semester calculus courses do not require students to think about functions of more than one variable. Yet…

Ratliff, Bobby Kevin – ProQuest LLC, 2009
The purpose of this study was to determine (1) strategies students use when solving composition problems and the difficulties they encounter; (2) conceptions and/or misconceptions students have with respect to composition of functions; and (3) the effect of using dynamic visualization during instruction on students' understanding of composition of…

García-García, Javier; Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
Mathematical connections play an important role in achieving mathematical understanding. Therefore, in this article, we report research whose objective was to identify mathematical connections that pre-university students make when they solve problems that involve the derivative and the integral. In this research, we consider a mathematical…

van de Sande, Carla; Leinhardt, Gaea – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2007
Free, open, online homework help sites appear to be extremely popular and exist for many school subjects. Students can anonymously post problems at their convenience and receive responses from forum members. This mode of tutoring may be especially critical for school subjects such as calculus that are intrinsically challenging and have high…

Miller-Reilly, Barbara – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
During the past decade three different bridging mathematics courses have been offered at the University of Auckland. A case study approach was used to investigate the effectiveness of these courses: two larger courses and one individual study programme. A different teaching approach, by committed experienced teachers, was used in each course. The…

Fluck, Andrew E.; Ranmuthugala, Dev; Chin, C. K. H.; Penesis, Irene; Chong, Jacky; Yang, Yang; Ghous, Asim – Education and Information Technologies, 2020
The Calculus for Kids project was deliberately designed to use computers in the transformation of curriculum. The intervention used multi-media learning materials to assist teachers and Year 6 (aged 11-12 years) students understand the principles of integral calculus. They used Maple mathematics software to solve real-world problems using these…

Simmons, Cecil Max – ProQuest LLC, 2010
This study tested whether the Stereotype Threat effect is mediated by achievement goals, in particular performance-avoidance goals. Threat level was altered before a difficult math test to observe how the endorsement by females of various achievement goal dimensions was affected. 222 people (96 females) in a pre-calculus class at a Mid-Western…
