Johar, Rahmah; Yusniarti, Sri; Saminan – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

The lack of Indonesian students achievement in the international assessment is due to several factors. Students are not familiar with the problems requiring reasoning, in particular the proportional reasoning. This research aims to identify the distribution and the Level of Cognitive Demands (LCD) of the proportional reasoning problems found in…

Flores, Alfinio; Phelps, Christine M.; Jansen, Amanda – PRIMUS, 2017

We present a first-hand, longer-term account of one student's (Christine's) experiences in and after a mathematics inquiry course. In this course, students actively posed problems, conducted their own mathematical explorations, and wrote journal entries about their experiences. During the course, Christine found that inquiry helped her develop…

Wijayanti, Dyana; Winsløw, Carl – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2017

We present a new method in textbook analysis, based on so-called praxeological reference models focused on specific content at task level. This method implies that the mathematical contents of a textbook (or textbook part) is analyzed in terms of the tasks and techniques which are exposed to or demanded from readers; this can then be interpreted…

Saleh, Muhamad; Prahmana, Rully Charitas Indra; Isa, Muhammad; Murni – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

By taking the role as a mentor and a facilitator, a teacher in the 4th grade of elementary school needs to look at the condition of the students in the concrete thinking stage. Learning process needs to be adjusted such that the abstract objects in mathematics can be represented through concrete objects as a bridge to enter the knowledge that the…

Yorulmaz, Alper; Altintas, Sedat; Sidekli, Sabri – European Journal of Educational Research, 2017

The state of mathematical thinking is considered to have an effect on the formation of anxiety regarding teaching mathematics. It is hypothesized that with the formation of mathematical thinking, the anxiety in teachers regarding teaching mathematics will be reduced. Since mathematical thinking is a skill acquired starting from the early years of…
