Radišic, Jelena; Baucal, Aleksandar – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018

The study explores how teachers perceive and go about students' thinking in connection to particular mathematical content and how they frame the notion of applied mathematics in their own classrooms. Teachers' narratives are built around two released PISA 2012 mathematics items, the 'Drip rate' and 'Climbing Mount Fuji' (will be referred to as the…

Hole, Arne; Grønmo, Liv Sissel; Onstad, Torgeir – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2018

Background: This paper discusses a framework for analyzing the dependence on mathematical theory in test items, that is, a framework for discussing to what extent knowledge of mathematical theory is helpful for the student in solving the item. The framework can be applied to any test in which some knowledge of mathematical theory may be useful,…

Piacentini, Mario; Monticone, Chiara – OECD Publishing, 2016

More than ever, students need to engage with mathematics concepts, think quantitatively and analytically, and communicate using mathematics. All these skills are central to a young person's preparedness to tackle problems that arise at work and in life beyond the classroom. But the reality is that many students are not familiar with basic…
