Kramarski, Bracha; Revach, Tali – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2009
This study investigated mathematics teachers' professional knowledge among elementary school teachers exposed to a professional training program that either supported self-regulated learning (SRL) or offered no SRL support (no-SRL). The SRL support was based on the IMPROVE metacognitive self-questioning method that directs students' attention to…

Lochhead, Jack; And Others – 1985
Numerous research studies over the past five years indicate that a high percentage of college students have severe deficiencies in their ability to use mathematics as a language for representing simple quantitative relationships. In the United States these problems are nearly as common among students with strong computational skills in algebra and…

Tsamir, Pessia; Ovodenko, Regina – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This paper describes prospective secondary school mathematics teachers' images and definitions of inflection points. The data indicate that prospective teachers tended to regard f[prime](x)=0 and/or the location "where the graph bends" as necessary/sufficient conditions for inflection points. The solutions were based on previous…
