Strayer, Jeremy F.; Hart, James B.; Bleiler, Sarah K. – PRIMUS, 2015
In this article, we share a model of flipped instruction that allowed us to gain a window into our students' mathematical thinking. We depict how that increased awareness of student thinking shaped our mathematics instruction in productive ways. Drawing on our experiences with students in our own classrooms, we show how flipped instruction can be…

Sriraman, Bharath, Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2012
The interaction of the history of mathematics and mathematics education has long been construed as an esoteric area of inquiry. Much of the research done in this realm has been under the auspices of the history and pedagogy of mathematics group. However there is little systematization or consolidation of the existing literature aimed at…

Zazkis, Rina; Leikin, Roza – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2010
For the purpose of our research we define Advanced Mathematical Knowledge (AMK) as knowledge of the subject matter acquired during undergraduate studies at colleges or universities. We examine the responses of secondary school teachers about their usage of AMK in teaching. We find that the majority of teachers focus on the purposes and advantages…

Tra, Yolande V.; Evans, Irene M. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2010
"BIO2010" put forth the goal of improving the mathematical educational background of biology students. The analysis and interpretation of microarray high-dimensional data can be very challenging and is best done by a statistician and a biologist working and teaching in a collaborative manner. We set up such a collaboration and designed a course on…

de Voogt, Alex; Rougetet, Lisa; Epstein, Nathan – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Some research has suggested the use of mancala games in mathematics education. The immediate concepts associated with playing mancala games have been limited to counting as well as addition and subtraction, so the potential of mancala has remained limited to primary school education. This proposed adaptation of a mancala game allows for teaching…

Unal, Hasan – Mathematics Teaching Incorporating Micromath, 2008
As well as being important for school mathematics, spatial thinking is a big component of advanced mathematical studies too. As Jones (2001:55) points out, "Much of the thinking that is required in higher mathematics is spatial in nature. Einstein's comments on thinking in images are well known. Numerous mathematicians report using spatial…

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…

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…

Fraboni, Michael; Hartshorn, Kevin – PRIMUS, 2007
In the typical first-year mathematics course--whether it be calculus or a general education quantitative proficiency course--we struggle to help students see the relevance of mathematics to their own lives. Particularly in a focused course such as calculus, there is a danger that students see mathematics as an isolated subject, with applications…

Yarema, Connie H.; Hendricks, T. David – MathAMATYC Educator, 2010
Recommendations and standards from various stakeholders in the mathematical preparation of teachers, such as "The Mathematical Education of Teachers" ( and "Beyond Crossroads" (, call for courses that emphasize connections within topics in…

Roberts, Sally K.; Tayeh, Carla – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2010
To focus on mathematical reasoning and what makes a good argument, the authors developed an assignment that requires college students to submit a book of mathematical reasoning as an assessment during the semester. To begin, the authors looked for questions and tasks that lend themselves to developing mathematical arguments and justifications and…

Hardy, Nadia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2009
This paper presents a study of instructors' and students' perceptions of the knowledge to be learned about limits of functions in a college level Calculus course, taught in a North American college institution. I modeled these perceptions using a theoretical framework that combines elements of the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic, developed…

Yee, Ng Kin; Lam, Toh Tin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This paper reports on students' errors in performing integration of rational functions, a topic of calculus in the pre-university mathematics classrooms. Generally the errors could be classified as those due to the students' weak algebraic concepts and their lack of understanding of the concept of integration. With the students' inability to link…

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.)

Ellington, Roni; Wachira, James; Nkwanta, Asamoah – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2010
The focus of this Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project was on RNA secondary structure prediction by using a lattice walk approach. The lattice walk approach is a combinatorial and computational biology method used to enumerate possible secondary structures and predict RNA secondary structure from RNA sequences. The method uses…
