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…

Garner, Mary L.; Watson, Virginia; Rogers, Beth; Head, Catherine – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Math teachers' circles are a form of professional development that is recommended by the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences in their publication Mathematical Education of Teachers II (2012). However, little research has been published on how effective math teachers' circles are in advancing the mathematical knowledge of teachers and…

Schukajlow, S.; Kaiser, G.; Stillman, G. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
The teaching and learning of mathematical modelling is an important research field all over the world. In this paper we present a survey of the state-of-the-art on empirical studies in this field. We analyse the development of studies focusing on cognitive aspects of the promotion of modelling, i.e. the promotion of modelling abilities resp.…

Sriraman, Bharath; Dickman, Benjamin – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper, the role of mathematical pathologies as a means of fostering creativity in the classroom is discussed. In particular, it delves into what constitutes a mathematical pathology, examines historical mathematical pathologies as well as pathologies in contemporary classrooms, and indicates how the Lakatosian heuristic can be used to…

MacDonald, Amy; Fenton, Angela; Davidson, Christina – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2018
This article reports on a qualitative pilot study which documented the ways in which young children and their families "notice," "explore," and "talk about" mathematical concepts and processes as they participate in family shopping experiences. Six families, with children ranging from 12 months to 10 years, were…

Eddy, Colleen M.; Kuehnert, Eloise Aniag – American Educational History Journal, 2018
The purpose of this paper is to account for the advancement of questioning in mathematics education. Four sections focus on: (1) Importance of Questioning in Education (a historical perspective of questioning from the 1960s through the 1990s); (2) Cognitive Classification of Questions (Costa's Levels of Thinking, Webb's Depth of Knowledge, and…

Watts, Tyler W.; Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie; Wolfe, Christopher B.; Spitler, Mary Elaine; Bailey, Drew H. – Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2017
Early educational intervention effects typically fade in the years following treatment, and few studies have investigated why achievement impacts diminish over time. The current study tested the effects of a preschool mathematics intervention on two aspects of children's mathematical development. We tested for separate effects of the intervention…

Williams-van Klinken, Catharina; Hajek, John – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2018
Tetun Dili, an Austronesian language spoken in East Timor, was until 1999 primarily an oral language of intercultural communication. Since the 1999 vote on independence from Indonesia, Tetun Dili has become the dominant language of public life, including the government, education and the media, as well as becoming an official language alongside…

Frejd, Peter; Bergsten, Christer – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
The notion of mathematical modelling has multiple interpretations in research literature and has been included in curriculum documents in various ways. This study presents a thematic analysis of nine professional modellers' conceptions of the notion of mathematical modelling, representing scholarly knowledge. The result is organised according to…

Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017
Mathematics educators agree elementary teachers should possess confidence and competence in teaching mathematics. Many prospective elementary teachers (particularly women) pursue careers in elementary teaching despite personal repeated experiences of mathematics anxiety. Previous studies of mathematics anxiety have tended to focus on physical…

More, M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
We bring out an experience of organizing mathematical competitions that can be used as a medium to motivate the student and teacher minds in new directions of thinking. This can contribute to fostering research, innovation and provide a hands-on experience of mathematical concepts with the real world. Mathematical competitions can be used to build…
