Applebaum, Mark; Leikin, Roza – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014

This study is based on our belief that mathematics should be challenging in any classroom and that mathematical challenge is among the central factors that determine the quality of mathematics lessons. Choosing challenging mathematical problem for the students is central in teachers' work while their conception of mathematical challenge can…

Singer, Florence Mihaela; Sheffield, Linda Jensen; Leikin, Roza – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

Creativity and giftedness in mathematics education research are topics of an increased interest in the education community during recent years. This introductory paper to the special issue on Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness in Mathematics Education has a twofold purpose: to offer a brief historical perspective on the study of creativity and…

Guberman, Raisa; Leikin, Roza – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013

The study considers mathematical problem solving to be at the heart of mathematics teaching and learning, while mathematical challenge is a core element of any educational process. The study design addresses the complexity of teachers' knowledge. It is aimed at exploring the development of teachers' mathematical and pedagogical conceptions…

Waisman, Ilana; Leikin, Mark; Shaul, Shelley; Leikin, Roza – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014

In this study, we examine the impact and the interplay of general giftedness (G) and excellence in mathematics (EM) on high school students' mathematical performance associated with translations from graphical to symbolic representations of functions, as reflected in cortical electrical activity (by means of ERP--event-related…

Leikin, Roza; Zazkis, Rina; Meller, Michal – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2018

We believe that professional mathematicians who teach undergraduate mathematics courses to prospective teachers play an important role in the education of secondary school mathematics teachers. Thus, we explored the views of research mathematicians on the mathematics that should be taught to prospective mathematics teachers, on how the courses…

Leikin, Roza; Koichu, Boris; Berman, Avi; Dinur, Sariga – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

This paper presents a part of a larger study, in which we asked "How are learning and teaching of mathematics at high level linked to students' general giftedness?" We consider asking questions, especially student-generated questions, as indicators of quality of instructional interactions. In the part of the study presented in this…

Leikin, Roza; Waisman, Ilana; Leikin, Mark – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016

We asked: "What are the similarities and differences in mathematical processing associated with solving learning-based and insight-based problems?" To answer this question, the ERP research procedure was employed with 69 male adolescent subjects who solved specially designed insight-based and learning-based tests. Solutions of…

Leikin, Roza; Zazkis, Rina – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010

In this article, we demonstrate that prospective teachers' content knowledge related to defining mathematical concepts is dependent on content area. We use the example of generation (a research tool we developed in a previous study) to investigate prospective teachers' knowledge. We asked prospective secondary mathematics teachers to provide…

Waisman, Ilana; Leikin, Mark; Leikin, Roza – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016

Mathematical processing associated with solving short geometry problems requiring logical inference was examined among students who differ in their levels of general giftedness (G) and excellence in mathematics (EM) using ERP research methodology. Sixty-seven male adolescents formed four major research groups designed according to various…

Leikin, Roza; Leikin, Mark; Waisman, Ilana; Shaul, Shelley – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013

This study explores the effects of the "presence of external representations of a mathematical object" (ERs) on problem solving performance associated with short double-choice problems. The problems were borrowed from secondary school algebra and geometry, and the ERs were either formulas, graphs of functions, or drawings of geometric…

Robinson, Naomi; Leikin, Roza – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012

In this paper, we analyze 2 lessons by 1 teacher that took place during a lesson study (LS) cycle for a team of elementary mathematics teachers. We analyze the data on 2 levels: macro-level analysis, dealing with lesson structure and setting; and micro-level analysis, zooming in on mathematical tasks and the quality of whole-class discussion. We…

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…

Leikin, Roza; Levav-Waynberg, Anat – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2007

This study is grounded in the theoretical position that solving problems in different ways creates mathematical connections when learning and teaching mathematics. It acknowledges the central role teachers play in providing students with learning opportunities, and it is based on the empirical finding that mathematics teachers are reluctant to…

Leikin, Roza; Dinur, Sariga – Journal of Mathematical Behavior, 2007

The significance of discussion in mathematics classes has been prominently debated in the research literature. Different studies have stressed the importance of teacher flexibility in orchestrating the discussion. We introduce an operational definition of teacher flexibility. In a case study with one secondary-school mathematics teacher, we…

Zazkis, Rina; Leikin, Roza; Jolfaee, Simin – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2011

A Mathematics course for elementary school teachers (MFET) is required in North America in most teacher education programs. Our study investigates the perceptions of prospective elementary school teachers with respect to the contributions of such a course to their teaching. The results show that acquiring an understanding of concepts from the…
