Michie, Michael – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2017
The introduction of a new curriculum in Indonesian schools seeks to bring about changes in Indonesian society as well as students' knowledge base. The curriculum is based on two layers of competencies: Core Competencies, and Basic Competencies. Core Competencies are applicable at all year levels and for all subjects. They include religious and…

Gravemeijer, Koeno; Stephan, Michelle; Julie, Cyril; Lin, Fou-Lai; Ohtani, Minoru – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper attempts to engage the field in a discussion about what mathematics is needed for students to engage in society, especially with an increase in technology and digitalization. In this respect, mathematics holds a special place in STEM as machines do most of the calculations that students are taught in K-12. We raise questions about what…

Hoogland, Kees; Tout, Dave – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
In recent decades, technology has influenced various aspects of assessment in mathematics education: (1) supporting the assessment of higher-order thinking skills in mathematics, (2) representing authentic problems from the world around us to use and apply mathematical knowledge and skills, and (3) making the delivery of tests and the analysis of…

Duchhardt, Christoph; Jordan, Anne-Katrin; Ehmke, Timo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) has recently drawn additional attention to "mathematical literacy" as an important influential factor for individuals' life chances. High levels of mathematical literacy have thereby been linked to using mathematics in daily and working life frequently. In this…

Komatsu, Kotaro; Fujita, Taro; Jones, Keith; Naoki, Sue – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018
Kitcher's idea of 'explanatory unification', while originally proposed in the philosophy of science, may also be relevant to mathematics education, as a way of enhancing student thinking and achieving classroom activity that is closer to authentic mathematical practice. There is, however, no mathematics education research treating explanatory…

Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Mathematics education researchers have investigated mathematics anxiety in prospective elementary teachers. While many of these studies have focused on the bodily sensations and emotions of mathematics anxiety, particularly those felt in assessment situations, opportunities remain to investigate how prospective elementary teachers interpret their…

Ertle, Barbrina B. – Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, 2017
This article reports on the findings of manipulative analyses performed by preservice and in-service teachers in an early childhood teacher education program mathematics methods course. The activities are intended to model and promote mathematical analyses for better discrimination between mathematics manipulatives by early childhood teachers.…

Budinski, Natalija; Milinkovic, Dragica – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2017
The availability of technology has a big impact on education, and that is the main reason for discussing the use of technologies in mathematical education in our paper. The availability of technology influences how mathematical contents could be presented to students. We present the benefits of learning mathematical concepts through real life…

Sitabkhan, Yasmin; Platas, Linda M.; Ketterlin-Geller, Leanne R. – Global Education Review, 2018
This paper explores an innovative assessment framework for measuring children's formal and informal mathematical knowledge. Many existing standardized measures, such as the Early Grade Mathematics Assessment, measure children's performance in early primary grade skills that have been identified by researchers and policy makers as foundational and…

Ambrose, Don – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
This article employs an interdisciplinary approach to explore some psychological dimensions of mathematical creativity and the dogmatism that can emerge when mathematical applications are confined within a single worldview. More specifically, it explores some ways in which mathematics has been confined and distorted in service of dogmatic…

Felton-Koestler, Mathew D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
In this article, I introduce a framework--the What, Who, and How of mathematics--that emerged from studying my teaching of prospective teachers and their views of the social and political dimensions of mathematics teaching and learning. The What, Who, How framework asks us to consider What messages we send about mathematics and the world, Whose…

Lozano, Maria-Dolores – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper I introduce a methodological approach that can be useful for investigating relationships between mathematics tasks, mathematical classroom cultures and mathematics learning. This proposal responds to a need, identified in the literature, for "further research which uses alternative methods to understand student perspectives more…

Ipek, Ali Sabri – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2018
Pre-service mathematics teachers' content knowledge is an important issue. Therefore, detailed studies are needed to be conducted on mathematical topics. The study examines preservice elementary mathematics teachers' (PEMTs) special content knowledge (SCK) of integer addition and subtraction in the context of using multiple representations,…

Nortvedt, Guri A.; Buchholtz, Nils – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
In educational contexts, assessments may be designed to target students, preservice teachers, or teachers, either as individuals or as representatives of a group, and for a multitude of purposes. One key aim of assessment in mathematics education is to provide evidence that can be used to make decisions about or improve mathematics education,…

Tan, Paulo; Kastberg, Signe – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
In this commentary, the authors find that despite discussions of "mathematics for all," opportunities that support the development of mathematical reasoning and understanding of mathematics as a human endeavor often do not exist for mathematics learners identified in schools as having dis/abilities. Indeed, mathematics for all is…
