Flores, Ángel Homero; Gómez, Adriana; Chávez, Xochitl – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2015
Using Mathematical Modelling has become a useful tool in teaching-learning mathematics at all levels. This is so because mathematical objects are seen from their very applications, giving them meaning from the beginning. In this paper we present some details on the development of a teacher's training course called Modelling in the Teaching of…

Adoniou, Misty; Qing, Yi – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2014
There is a correlation between language proficiency and achievement in mathematics (Riordain & O'Donoghue, 2009), and this is particularly evident for children who speak English as an additional language or dialect. More effort needs to be made in mathematics classrooms to develop cognitive competencies, including the ability to decode and…

Hilton, Annette; Hilton, Geoff – Teaching Science, 2016
In many scientific contexts, students need to be able to use mathematical knowledge in order to engage in scientific reasoning and problem-solving, and their understanding of scientific concepts relies heavily on their ability to understand and use mathematics in often new or unfamiliar contexts. Not only do science students need high levels of…

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…

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…
