Stacey, Kaye – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
PISA, the OECD's international program of assessment of reading, scientific and mathematical literacy (www.oecd.org/pisa), aims to assess the ability of 15 year olds to use the knowledge and skills that have acquired at school in real world tasks and challenges. It also uses questionnaires to gather data on students' attitudes to learning and the…

Chick, Helen; Stacey, Kaye – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2013
Some of mathematics teaching is routine, like an exercise from a textbook for which you have received instruction and already know what to do. On other occasions, however, teaching mathematics is challenging, involving problems of teaching for which the solutions may not be readily apparent. These situations require the application of mathematical…

Widjaja, Wanty; Stacey, Kaye; Steinle, Vicki – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
Extensive studies have documented various difficulties with, and misconceptions about, decimal numeration across different levels of education. This paper reports on pre-service teachers' misconceptions about the density of decimals. Written test data from 140 Indonesian pre-service teachers, observation of group and classroom discussions provided…

Gatabi, Abolfazl Rafiepour; Stacey, Kaye; Gooya, Zahra – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2012
This study presents a content analysis of the new Iranian Grade 9 mathematics textbook and two Australian Year 9 mathematics textbooks, examining the extent to which the problems show characteristics associated in the literature with promoting mathematical literacy. The new Iranian book was produced to meet a range of needs including several well…

Bardini, Caroline; Oldenburg, Reinhard; Stacey, Kaye; Pierce, Robyn – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
Changes to students' understanding of mathematical notation may be brought about by using technology within mathematics. Taking equality as a case study, the paper provides brief epistemological, historical, didactical, and computational reviews of its symbolic representation in pen-and-paper and technology-assisted mathematics, most especially in…

Stacey, Kaye – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2012
Reasoning is one of the proficiency strands of the new Australian Curriculum. It has always been important in mathematics and its importance has always been recognised in mathematics curricula across Australia. However, the new proficiency strand provides an opportunity for all teachers to reconsider how they teach this essential aspect of…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye; Wander, Roger; Ball, Lynda – Technology, Pedagogy and Education, 2011
Current technologies incorporating sophisticated mathematical analysis software (calculation, graphing, dynamic geometry, tables, and more) provide easy access to multiple representations of mathematical problems. Realising the affordances of such technology for students' learning requires carefully designed lessons. This paper reports on design…

Stacey, Kaye – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010
PISA, the OECD's international program of assessment of reading, scientific and mathematical literacy, aims to assess the knowledge and skills that students have acquired at school and their ability to use them in everyday tasks and challenges. It also uses questionnaires to gather data on students' attitudes to learning and the conditions of…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This paper explores how four good teachers, who do not have a special interest in technology, meet the challenge of introducing the rapidly developing mathematics analysis software (e.g. spreadsheets, function graphers, symbolic algebra manipulation and dynamic geometry) into their classrooms. These teachers' practice is viewed through the…

Vincent, Jill; Stacey, Kaye – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2009
An important message teachers convey to their students is that mathematics is founded on reasoning and is not just a collection of rules to apply. Many mathematical rules such as area formulas can be derived in ways that are age-appropriate to students, and it is an important part of mathematics education that students engage in these derivations…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 2010
This paper proposes a taxonomy of the pedagogical opportunities that are offered by mathematics analysis software such as computer algebra systems, graphics calculators, dynamic geometry or statistical packages. Mathematics analysis software is software for purposes such as calculating, drawing graphs and making accurate diagrams. However, its…

Stacey, Kaye – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2005
In his recent article in this journal, John Gough (2004) concludes that the practical results of the considerable academic research undertaken at the University of Melbourne into the uses and impacts of graphics calculators and CAS (computer algebra systems) should be made more widely available in journals for teachers. This short article is…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This paper reports on the experiences of students who were learning mathematics with CAS for a second consecutive school year. Evidence presented shows that nearly all students managed the challenging task of mastering the technical aspects of using CAS well. It also shows that the level of technical difficulty and the degree to which it presents…

Baratta, Wendy; Price, Beth; Stacey, Kaye; Steinle, Vicki; Gvozdenko, Eugene – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
This study reports how the difficulty of simple worded percentage problems is affected by the problem structure and the complexity of the numbers involved. We also investigate which methods students know. Results from 677 Year 8 and 9 students are reported. Overall the results indicate that more attention needs to be given to this important topic.…

Pierce, Robyn; Ball, Lynda; Stacey, Kaye – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) in years 9 and 10 classrooms as a tool to support learning or in preparation for senior secondary mathematics is controversial. This paper presents an analysis of the positive and negative aspects of using CAS identified in the literature related to these year levels, along with the perceptions of 12…
