Wijaya, Ariyadi; van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja; Doorman, Michiel – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
Based on the findings of an error analysis revealing that Indonesian ninth- and tenth-graders had difficulties in solving context-based tasks, we investigated the opportunity-to-learn offered by Indonesian textbooks for solving context-based mathematics tasks and the relation of this opportunity-to-learn to students' difficulties in solving these…

Foster, Colin – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
Achieving fluency in important mathematical procedures is fundamental to students' mathematical development. The usual way to develop procedural fluency is to practise repetitive exercises, but is this the only effective way? This paper reports three quasi-experimental studies carried out in a total of 11 secondary schools involving altogether 528…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
The work that mathematics teachers do is frequently mathematical in nature and different from other professions. Understanding and describing common ways that teachers draw upon their content knowledge in the practice of teaching is important. Building on the descriptions by McCrory et al. ("Journal for Research in Mathematics Education"…

Roos, Helena – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
This literature review focuses on the definitions and roles of "inclusion" in the field of mathematics education to help promote the sustainable development of inclusion in the discipline. Discourse analysis was used to analyse 76 studies published between 2010 and 2016. The results show that the term "inclusion" is used both…

Beckers, Danny – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In 1968, Hans Freudenthal launched the journal "Educational Studies in Mathematics." This paper describes the events leading to the foundation of this journal. It turns out that his wife, Suus Freudenthal, deserves more credit for her husband's interest and achievements in mathematics education. The couple was interested in education…

Jankvist, Uffe Thomas; Misfeldt, Morten; Aguilar, Mario Sánchez – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Inspired by the entering of computer algebra systems (CAS) in the Danish upper secondary school mathematics program, this article addresses, from a theoretical stance, what may happen when traditional procedures are outsourced to CAS. Looking at the commands "solve" and "desolve," it is asked what happens when such CAS…

Batchelor, Sophie; Torbeyns, Joke; Verschaffel, Lieven – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics-related affect comprises an individual's attitudes, beliefs, emotions and motivations towards mathematics. These affective constructs have been widely studied in mathematics education and cognitive psychology and have been shown to be related to cognitive outcomes such as performance on a range of mathematical tasks. However, it is not…

Tabach, Michal; Nachlieli, Talli – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
This special issue comprises five studies which vary in their focus and mathematical content, yet they all share an underlying communicational theoretical framework--commognition. Within this framework, learning mathematics is defined as a change in one's mathematical discourse, that is, in the form of communication known as mathematical. Teaching…

Demonty, Isabelle; Vlassis, Joëlle; Fagnant, Annick – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
Research focusing on algebra from primary to early secondary school level has made several major advances over the past decades. Students' difficulties have been identified and supportive teaching and learning environments have been set up (Cai & Knuth, 2011; Kieran, 2007; Radford, 2008, "Mathematics Education Research Journal," 26,…

Van Harpen, Xianwei Y.; Presmeg, Norma C. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2013
The importance of students' problem-posing abilities in mathematics has been emphasized in the K-12 curricula in the USA and China. There are claims that problem-posing activities are helpful in developing creative approaches to mathematics. At the same time, there are also claims that students' mathematical content knowledge could be highly…

Obersteiner, Andreas – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
Affect and mathematical competence are each multifaceted constructs. Accordingly, the studies in this Special Issue address multiple pathways between the two in young children. This commentary highlights the variability of these pathways and asks how affective variables are specifically related to core mathematical activities such as problem…

Iori, Maura – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
In mathematical activities and in the analysis of mathematics teaching-learning processes, "objects," "signs", and "representations" are often mentioned, where the meaning assigned to those words is sometimes very broad, sometimes limited, other times intuitive, allusive, or not completely clear. On the other hand, as…

Erath, Kirstin; Prediger, Susanne; Quasthoff, Uta; Heller, Vivien – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
Language, which plays a special role for the learning of mathematics, is investigated in this article for the specific discourse practice of explaining during whole-class discussions: On the one hand, explaining is a medium for learning since school cannot be thought of without communication. On the other hand, students at the beginning of…

Brown, Tony – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
This paper argues that rationality and belief are mutually formative dimensions of school mathematics, where each term is more politically embedded than often depicted in the field of mathematics education research. School mathematics then presents not so much rational mathematical thought distorted by irrational beliefs but rather a particular…

Kollosche, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
In mathematics education, researchers have proposed a wide range of improvements of teaching practice in school, but only a few of these proposals have sustainably changed mathematics education in the desired form. This article takes off with the assumption that this gap between ideals and practice can be understood and challenged through a better…
