Lim, Kien H.; Buendia, Gabriela; Kim, Ok-Kyeong; Cordero, Francisco; Kasmer, Lisa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
The prevalence of prediction in grade-level expectations in mathematics curriculum standards signifies the importance of the role prediction plays in the teaching and learning of mathematics. In this article, we discuss benefits of using prediction in mathematics classrooms: (1) students' prediction can reveal their conceptions, (2) prediction…

Marzocchi, Alison S. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
This article suggests that logic puzzles, such as the well-known Tower of Hanoi puzzle, can be used to introduce computer science concepts to mathematics students of all ages. Mathematics teachers introduce their students to computer science concepts that are enacted spontaneously and subconsciously throughout the solution to the Tower of Hanoi…

Bingolbali, E.; Ozmantar, M. F. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009
In this article we focus on university lecturers' approaches to the service teaching and factors that influence their approaches. We present data obtained from the interviews with 19 mathematics and three physics lecturers along with the observations of two mathematics lecturers' calculus courses. The findings show that lecturers' approaches to…

Paolillo, Bonaventura; Rizzo, Piermichele; Vincenzi, Giovanni – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
In this paper, we give possible suggestions for a classroom lesson about an application of probability using basic mathematical notions. We will approach to some combinatoric results without using "induction", "polynomial identities" nor "generating functions", and will give a proof of the "Vandermonde…

Evans, Ryan; Lindner, Brett; Shi, Yixun – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
This article presents a few methods for generating Sudoku puzzles. These methods are developed based on the concepts of matrix, permutation, and modular functions, and therefore can be used to form application examples or student projects when teaching various mathematics courses. Mathematical properties of these methods are studied, connections…

Bingolbali, E.; Monaghan, J.; Roper, T. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
This paper explores Mechanical Engineering students' conceptions of and preferences for conceptions of the derivative, and their views on mathematics. Data comes from pre-, post- and delayed post-tests, a preference test, interviews with students and an analysis of calculus courses. Data from Mathematics students is used to make comparisons with…

Toh, Tin-Lam – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
This paper describes a content upgrading course on Secondary School Algebra which was planned and conducted for in-service mathematics teachers who are trained to teach mathematics at lower secondary level (ages 13 to 14). In order to be an effective mathematics teacher, one needs to know a great deal of mathematical knowledge on top of good…

Bakhoum, Ezzat G. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2008
Macromedia's FLASH development system can be a great tool for mathematics education. This article presents detailed Flash tutorials that were developed and taught by the author to a group of mathematics professors in a summer course in 2005. The objective was to educate the teachers in the techniques of animating equations and mathematical…

Griffiths, Martin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
In this article we highlight how a simple classroom activity associated with the dissection of rectangles into right-angled triangles can lead on to a number of interesting explorations for students following a post-16 mathematics course. Several results connected with this construction are obtained, and some of the educational benefits of…

Winkel, Brian – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
We present background and an activity meant to show both instructors and students that mere button pushing with technology is insufficient for success, but that additional thought and preparation will permit the technology to serve as an excellent tool in the understanding and learning of mathematics. (Contains 5 figures.)

Leikin, Roza – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2005
Undergraduate and graduate mathematics teacher education frameworks must ensure professional development of two groups of practitioners within the community of mathematics educators, namely pre-service and in-service mathematics teachers. The relationship between them serves as an example of connection theory and practice in mathematics teacher…

Cherif, Chokri; Goldstein, Avraham; Prado, Lucio M. G. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
This article could be of interest to teachers of applied mathematics as well as to people who are interested in applications of linear algebra. We give a comprehensive study of linear systems from an application point of view. Specifically, we give an overview of linear systems and problems that can occur with the computed solution when the…

Mallet, D. G.; McCue, S. W. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009
The solution of linear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) is commonly taught in first-year undergraduate mathematics classrooms, but the understanding of the concept of a solution is not always grasped by students until much later. Recognizing what it is to be a solution of a linear ODE and how to postulate such solutions, without resorting to…
