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…

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…

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…

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…

Luria, Sarah R.; Sriraman, Bharath; Kaufman, James C. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

Equity is an important element of educational discourses pertaining to mathematics and science education. Creativity is an aspect of the classroom that is often ignored due to curricular constraints and the burden of testing. However mathematics offers avenues to infuse the regular curricula with activities that are thought provoking and require…

Sriraman, Bharath – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

The aim of this paper is to provide a concise survey of advances in the study of the psychology of creativity, with an emphasis on literature that is typically not cited in mathematics education. In spite of claims that mathematical creativity is an ill-defined area of inquiry in mathematics education, the literature from psychology can serve as…

Stott, Debbie – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018

In this article I provide a preliminary review of Radford's ideas about the poetic role of theory and his work on moments of poesis in terms of its appeal and usefulness in research contexts. In light of the mathematics education community's call for more attention to be given to the aesthetic elements of learning mathematics, I conclude that…

Goldin, Gerald A. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

The investigations described in the ten fascinating research studies contained in the current volume of "ZDM Mathematics Education" evoke some perspectives in response. I consider the articles thematically in relation to a suggested set of important or pressing questions about creativity and giftedness in mathematics education, grouped…
