Haara, Frode Olav; Bolstad, Oda Heidi; Jenssen, Eirik S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

The development of mathematical literacy in schools is of significant concern at the policy level, and research is an important source of information in this process. This review article focuses on areas of research interest identified in empirical projects on mathematical literacy, and how mathematical literacy in schools is approached by…

Rahayu, Sri; Kita, Masakazu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010

This study investigated Indonesian and Japanese students' understandings of macroscopic and submicroscopic levels of representing matter and its changes and the difficulties they have with these concepts. A multiple-choice questionnaire was constructed and delivered to 447 Indonesian and 446 Japanese public senior high school students. The data…

Tan, Tracy; Garces-Bacsal, Rhoda Myra – Gifted and Talented International, 2013

This study examined the effect of journal writing on mathematics achievement in high-ability students in Singapore. It assessed both the cognitive benefits of journal writing (as evidenced through gains in math test scores) and the socio-affective benefits of journal writing (as demonstrated in their personal reflections) as the students learned…

Weinberg, Paul J. – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2017

Because reasoning about mechanism is critical to disciplined inquiry in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) domains, this study focuses on ways to support the development of this form of reasoning. This study attends to how mechanistic reasoning is constituted through mathematical description. This study draws upon Smith's…

Areepattamannil, Shaljan; Kaur, Berinderjeet – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013

This study, drawing on data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011, examined whether mathematics teachers' perceptions of their students' mathematical competence were related to mathematics achievement, affect toward mathematics, and engagement in mathematics lessons among Grade 8 students in Singapore and…

Engelbrecht, Johann; Mwambakana, Jeanine – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2016

The purpose of mathematics competitions, and in our case the South African Mathematics Olympiad (SAMO), is to promote problem solving skills and strategies, to generate interest and enthusiasm for mathematics and to identify the most talented mathematical minds. SAMO is organised in two divisions--a junior and a senior division--over three rounds.…

Acar Güvendir, Meltem – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016

This study focused on the extrinsic and intrinsic motivation levels of eighth grade students and its relationship with their mathematical achievement. The participants of the study included 6,829 students who took TIMSS in 2011 and 239 mathematics teachers. The data obtained from the student and teacher questionnaires that are included in the…

Piacentini, Mario; Monticone, Chiara – OECD Publishing, 2016

More than ever, students need to engage with mathematics concepts, think quantitatively and analytically, and communicate using mathematics. All these skills are central to a young person's preparedness to tackle problems that arise at work and in life beyond the classroom. But the reality is that many students are not familiar with basic…

Platas, Linda M.; Ketterlin-Geller, Leanne R.; Sitabkhan, Yasmin – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016

This paper describes the development and intended uses of the Early Grades Mathematics Assessment (EGMA), which measures essential early mathematical knowledge and skills that are foundational to more sophisticated mathematical abilities, predictive of later achievement, and teachable. Administering the EGMA can provide policy makers,…

Greenlees, Jane; Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri; Lowrie, Tom – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014

The World Bank 2007 TIMSS Video Study provided a distinctive insight into the practices of the Indonesian classroom and identified key strengths and weaknesses of current teaching. This investigation considered this evidence in the development of a structured lesson design that specifically addressed the instructional practices of the teaching and…

Lesseig, Kristin – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016

Research documenting teachers' fragile understanding of proof and how it is advanced suggests that enhancing the role of proof in school mathematics will demand substantial teacher learning. To date, there is little research detailing what mathematical knowledge might support the teaching of proof or how professional development (PD) might afford…

Nasir, Na'ilah Suad; de Royston, Maxine McKinney – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2013

How issues of power and identity play out in mathematical practices are described by Na'ilah Suad Nasir and Maxine McKinney de Royston. Their article offers a perspective on how to better understand the sociopolitical nature of teaching and learning mathematics. They present data from studies of mathematics teaching and learning in out-of-school…

Staples, Megan; Newton, Jill – Theory Into Practice, 2016

This article addresses the purposes and types of opportunities for engaging students in argumentation in the mathematics classroom. Drawing on data from a research project, we document how argumentation--a practice that is central to the work of the mathematics community--can be contextualized in secondary mathematics classrooms to serve different…

Mhakure, Duncan; Mokoena, Mamolahluwa Amelia – Online Submission, 2011

This article is based on a study that compared the FET (further education and training) phase mathematics literacy curriculum and mathematics curriculum. The study looked into how the conceptualization of a mathematical literacy curriculum enhanced the acquisition of mathematical concepts among the learners. In order to carry out this comparison…

Zhao, Yan-jun – Online Submission, 2011

Ethnic students will face the problem of "cultural discontinuities" when they learn school mathematics. "Cultural discontinuity" is the main obstacle when they learn school mathematics. Teachers should put up the bridge for introducing ethnic mathematical knowledge into school mathematics teaching. The concrete tactics are:…
