Borji, Vahid; Erfani, Hedyeh; Font, Vicenç – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
The aim of this study is to analyse undergraduate students' understanding of polar coordinates based on two theories, Action, Process, Object and Schema (APOS) and Onto-Semiotic Approach (OSA). These two theories complement each other and each of them separately has been used in many research to explore students' performance of mathematical…

Zakrajsek, Todd M. – New Directions for Teaching and Learning, 2017
This chapter describes the ways in which the MVP model relates to recent research on neuroscience and learning, and demonstrates how those relationships may be used to better understand physiological impacts on motivation, and to facilitate improved learning.

Font Moll, Vicenç; Trigueros, María; Badillo, Edelmira; Rubio, Norma – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
This paper presents a networking of two theories, the APOS Theory and the ontosemiotic approach (OSA), to compare and contrast how they conceptualize the notion of a mathematical object. As context of reflection, we designed an APOS genetic decomposition for the derivative and analyzed it from the point of view of OSA. Results of this study show…

McLellan, Chelsea K.; Jackson, Dennis L. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2017
The current study explored the relation between the Big-Five personality domains, self-regulated learning, and academic entitlement. Academic entitlement is defined as the tendency to possess expectations of unearned academic success, unearned/undeserved academic services, and/or the expectation of unrealistic accommodation (Chowning and Campbell…

Hammersley, Martyn – Higher Education Quarterly, 2016
It is widely recognised that academic freedom is currently under threat. But there is also considerable dispute about the meaning of the term. In this paper I examine two recent and important accounts of the nature of academic freedom that seek to distinguish it clearly from free speech. Such a distinction is, in my view, essential. The aim of the…

Suggate, Sebastian; Pufke, Eva; Stoeger, Heidrun – Journal of Research in Reading, 2018
Background: Little is known about how fine motor skills (FMS) relate to early literacy skills, especially over and above cognitive variables. Moreover, a lack of distinction between FMS, grapho-motor and writing skills may have hampered previous work. Method: In Germany, kindergartners (n = 144, aged 6;1) were recruited before beginning formal…

Sparks, Richard L. – Foreign Language Annals, 2016
Conventional wisdom in education has suggested that students who are classified as learning disabled (LD) will exhibit inordinate difficulties learning a foreign language (FL). Even when not explicitly stated, the notion that those classified as LD have a disability for FL learning is implied. However, while beliefs about this purported disability…

Kwenge, Erasmus; Mwewa, Peter; Mulenga, H. M. – Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, 2015
The study was undertaken to establish the relationship between the roots of the perfect numbers and the "n" consecutive odd numbers. Odd numbers were arranged in such a way that their sums were either equal to the perfect square number or equal to a cube. The findings on the patterns and relationships of the numbers showed that there was…

Bart, William – Educational Technology, 2016
This article provides an examination of interrelationships among educational technology, creativity, and chess. It presents the argument that chess training fosters significant gains in scholastic achievement and cognitive ability. As a vital component in chess training programs, contemporary chess software such as Fritz serves as impressive…

Roubanis, Jody L. – Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, 2016
The Family and Consumer Sciences Body of Knowledge (FCS-BOK) provides an ideological stance that is universal to all practitioners of the profession, and it has major implications for the normative ethics that guide professional practice. The purpose of this article is to outline a conceptual framework to reveal the relational ethic inherent in…

Carusi, F. Tony; Rawlins, Peter; Ashton, Karen – Journal of Education Policy, 2018
Ontological politics has received increasing attention within education policy studies, particularly as a support for the notion of policy enactment. While policy enactment offers serious challenges to traditional approaches toward policy implementation, this paper takes up ontological politics as a concept that extends beyond implementation and…

Stirling, Ashley; Kerr, Gretchen; MacPherson, Ellen; Banwell, Jenessa; Bandealy, Ahad; Battaglia, Anthony – Canadian Journal of Higher Education, 2017
The educational benefits of embedding hands-on experience in higher education curriculum are widely recognized (Beard & Wilson, 2013). However, to optimize the learning from these opportunities, they need to be grounded in empirical learning theory. The purpose of this study was to examine the characteristics of internships in Ontario colleges…

Murray, Eileen; Durkin, Kelley; Chao, Theodore; Star, Jon R.; Vig, Rozy – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2018
Past work on mathematics teachers' content knowledge (CK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) has resulted in mixed findings about the strength of the relationship between and development of these constructs. The current study uses data from the Teacher Education and Development Study in Mathematics (TEDS-M) to examine the relationship between…

Lo, Mun Ling; Chik, Pakey Pui Man – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2016
In this paper, we aim to differentiate the internal and external horizons of "fusion." "Fusion" in the internal horizon relates to the structure and meaning of the object of learning as experienced by the learner. It clarifies the interrelationships among an object's critical features and aspects. It also illuminates the…

Click, Kevin A.; Huang, Leesa V.; Kline, Linda – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2017
Concern for the academic performance and persistence to graduation among university students is well-warranted. Numerous studies have tied performance to overall positive affect in professional settings and to individual internal concepts, indicating an expectation for similar ties in demanding academic settings. For students at increased risk for…
