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…

Liu, Po-Hung – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
The current main research trend in mathematics education is publishing studies by Western scholars pertaining to educational issues of the world in general. but Asia is mostly overlooked. Since international comparisons show Asian students outperform others in mathematics, the imbalance should receive more attention. To gain insight into this…

Bergsten, Christer; Engelbrecht, Johann; Kågesten, Owe – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
One challenge for an optimal design of the mathematical components in engineering education curricula is to understand how the procedural and conceptual dimensions of mathematical work can be matched with different demands and contexts from the education and practice of engineers. The focus in this paper is on how engineering students respond to…

Guce, Ivee K. – International Journal of Evaluation and Research in Education, 2017
Despite the efforts to confirm the effectiveness of writing in learning mathematics, analysis on common errors in mathematical writings has not received sufficient attention. This study aimed to provide an account of the students' procedural explanations in terms of their commonly committed errors in mathematical writing. Nine errors in…

Marshall, Jill A.; Durán, Pablo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Several major organizations have recommended revisions to mathematics requirements for biology majors. To determine whether these changes would benefit future biologists, we investigated mathematics use in research biology. We surveyed prominent journals in high and low math-use areas for articles referencing the use of quantitative methods. In…

Carnie, Steven; Morphett, Anthony – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Reports such as Bio2010 emphasize the importance of integrating mathematical modelling skills into undergraduate biology and life science programmes, to ensure students have the skills and knowledge needed for biological research in the twenty-first century. One way to do this is by developing a dedicated mathematics subject to teach modelling and…
