Debnath, L. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013

This article deals with a short historical introduction to determinants with applications to the theory of equations, geometry, multiple integrals, differential equations and linear algebra. Included are some properties of determinants with proofs, eigenvalues, eigenvectors and characteristic equations with examples of applications to simple…

Man, Yiu-Kwong – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009

In this note, we present an improved Heaviside approach to compute the partial fraction expansions of proper rational functions. This method uses synthetic divisions to determine the unknown partial fraction coefficients successively, without the need to use differentiation or to solve a system of linear equations. Examples of its applications in…

Geng, Jianming; Chen, Kaiyuan; Wang, Nengxin; Ling, Sihan; Guo, Muqi; Huang, Zuyi – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019

US high school (HS) students are lagging behind their foreign peers in math performance. It is thus necessary to design teaching modules that motivate US HS students to learn more math and to improve their math skills. Our study set out to test two different software programs designed for the development of such skills. MATLAB Simulink provides a…

Toumasis, Charalampos – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2004

Emphasis on problem solving and mathematical modeling has gained considerable attention in the last few years. Connecting mathematics to other subjects and to the real world outside the classroom has received increased attention in mathematics programs. This article describes an application of simple differential equations in the field of…

Harks, Birgit; Klieme, Eckhard; Hartig, Johannes; Leiss, Dominik – Educational Assessment, 2014

The present study investigates the empirical separability of mathematical (a) content domains, (b) cognitive domains, and (c) content-specific cognitive domains. There were 122 items representing two content domains (linear equations vs. theorem of Pythagoras) combined with two cognitive domains (modeling competence vs. technical competence)…

Wang, Xueli – Research in Higher Education, 2013

In this study, a theoretical model is tested to examine factors shaping the decision to pursue STEM fields of study among students entering community colleges and four-year institutions, based on a nationally representative sample of high school graduates from 2004. Applying the social cognitive career theory and multi-group structural equation…

Grant, Melva R.; Crombie, William; Enderson, Mary; Cobb, Nell – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Access to advanced study in mathematics, in general, and to calculus, in particular, depends in part on the conceptual architecture of these knowledge domains. In this paper, we outline an alternative conceptual architecture for elementary calculus. Our general strategy is to separate basic concepts from the particular advanced techniques used in…
