Budinski, Natalija; Subramaniam, Stephanie – European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2013
This paper shows how GeoGebra--a dynamic mathematics software--can be used to experiment, visualize and connect various concepts such as function, first derivative, slope, and tangent line. Students were given an assignment to determine the first derivative of the exponential function that they solved while experimenting with GeoGebra. GeoGebra…

Fillingim, Jennifer Gale – ProQuest LLC, 2010
Contemporary mathematics education reform has placed increased emphasis on K-12 mathematics curriculum. Reform-based curricula, often referred to as "Standards-based" due to philosophical alignment with the NCTM Process Standards, have generated controversy among families, educators, and researchers. The mathematics education research…

Grootenboer, Peter; Jorgensen, Robyn – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2009
In writing this paper we draw considerably on the work of Jo Boaler and Leone Burton. Boaler's studies of classrooms have been particularly poignant in alerting the mathematics education community to a number of key features of successful classrooms, and how such features can turn around the successes for students who traditionally perform poorly…

Harouni, Houman – ProQuest LLC, 2015
Why do schools teach mathematics, and why do they teach the mathematics that they do? In this three-part dissertation, I argue that the justifications offered by national education systems are not convincing, and that students are tested on content whose purpose neither they nor their teachers clearly understand. In the first part of the…

Sexton, Matt; Downton, Ann – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2014
It is not uncommon in many Australian primary schools for a teaching staff member to undertake the leadership or coordination of mathematics in his or her school. Some research (e.g., Cheeseman & Clarke, 2005) suggests that coordinators and leaders play an important role in the leadership and management of mathematics teaching and learning in…

Saracho, Olivia, Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2019
Researchers from different disciplines (e.g., physiological, psychological, philosophical) have investigated motivation using multiple approaches. For example, in physiology (the scientific study of the normal function in living systems such as biology), researchers may use "electrical and chemical stimulation of the brain, the recording of…

Green, Marcus Allen – ProQuest LLC, 2016
In order to increase mathematics achievement, persistence, and participation in mathematics-related careers and majors for African American adolescents, researchers have discussed the need for students to develop positive mathematical identities (English-Clarke, Slaughter-Defoe, & Martin, 2012; Gutstein, 2003; Larnell, 2013; Martin, 2000,…

Cikis, Seniz – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2010
Mathematics courses are integral part of architectural education. The content and objectives of these courses were determined in the Age of Enlightenment. Although conditions have changed since then, they still exist without being subjected to a radical revision. This study aims to introduce the necessary information for upgrading the content of…

Sriraman, Bharath; Knott, Libby – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2006
In set theory, one comes across the notion of "vacuous truth." A statement is vacuously true if it is true but does not quite say anything. The structure of a vacuously true statement is typically of the form: everything with property A also has property B, with the caveat being that there is nothing in property A. For instance one could…

Linder, Sandra M.; Powers-Costello, Beth; Stegelin, Dolores A. – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2011
Mathematics education is a critical part of the curriculum for students worldwide. The foundation for understanding mathematical concepts related to number sense begins early in life, and early childhood classrooms can provide the seeds for mathematical skills that will be needed later in life. In this article, the authors make a case for…

Whitaker, Donald R. – School Science and Mathematics, 1982
Factors believed to be major in influencing instruction in the waning years of this century are examined. It is felt teachers need assistance from many disciplines to be fully aware of the many implications various factors have for mathematics instruction. A list of eight contemporary goals for mathematics instruction is provided. (MP)
