Bardini, Caroline; Pierce, Robyn; Vincent, Jill; King, Deborah – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2014
Concern has been expressed that many commencing undergraduate mathematics students have mastered skills without conceptual understanding. A pilot study carried out at a leading Australian university indicates that a significant number of students, with high tertiary entrance ranks, have very limited understanding of the concept of function,…

Loong, Esther Yook-Kin – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2014
Whilst the technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) model has been increasingly adopted for understanding teachers' use of technology, there have been many calls for greater discussion about the constituent constructs, their relationship with one another and the central TPACK. This paper analyses qualitatively the TPACK…

Mahmud, Zamalia; Porter, Anne – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
Students' understanding of probability concepts have been investigated from various different perspectives. This study was set out to investigate perceived understanding of probability concepts of forty-four students from the STAT131 Understanding Uncertainty and Variation course at the University of Wollongong, NSW. Rasch measurement which is…

Stacey, Kaye – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
PISA, the OECD's international program of assessment of reading, scientific and mathematical literacy (www.oecd.org/pisa), aims to assess the ability of 15 year olds to use the knowledge and skills that have acquired at school in real world tasks and challenges. It also uses questionnaires to gather data on students' attitudes to learning and the…

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…

Arikan, Serkan; van de Vijver, Fons J. R.; Yagmur, Kutlay – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2018
We examined Differential Item Functioning (DIF) and the size of cross-cultural performance differences in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2012 mathematics data before and after application of propensity score matching. The mathematics performance of Indonesian, Turkish, Australian, and Dutch students on released items was…

Mutohir, Toho Cholik; Lowrie, Tom; Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
This study aimed to develop a survey instrument to measure student attitudes towards mathematics teaching-learning processes that is appropriate for the Indonesian context. This study consisted of two phases: Phase 1 (n = 320) was a pilot study to assess the suitability of the instrument items for Indonesian students. Phase 2 (n = 1001) was…

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…

Nakakoji, Yoshitaka; Wilson, Rachel – Education Sciences, 2018
Transfer of mathematical learning to science is seen as critical to the development of education and industrial societies, yet it is rarely interrogated in applied research. We present here research looking for evidence of transfer from university mathematics learning in semester one to second semester sciences/engineering courses (n = 1125). A…

Everingham, Yvette L.; Gyuris, Emma; Connolly, Sean R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Contemporary science educators must equip their students with the knowledge and practical know-how to connect multiple disciplines like mathematics, computing and the natural sciences to gain a richer and deeper understanding of a scientific problem. However, many biology and earth science students are prejudiced against mathematics due to…

Hill, David T. – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2016
Since Joseph Nye introduced the concept of "Soft power" in his 1991 book, "Bound to Lead: The Changing Nature of American Power", analysts have discussed states' efforts to exercise their influence by attracting and co-opting rather than coercing or using force. This paper will examine enrolments trends in Indonesian language…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Lowrie, Tom – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
This paper explores the relationship between social backgrounds and geographical locations with mathematical achievement. Using the national testing system in Australia, correlations between the variables were explored and it was found that students from rural and low SES backgrounds are still being marginalised in school mathematics--in terms of…

Bragg, Leicha A.; Herbert, Sandra; Loong, Esther Yoon-Kin; Vale, Colleen; Widjaja, Wanty – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016
Mathematical reasoning is now featured in the mathematics curriculum documents of many nations, but this necessitates changes to teaching practice and hence a need for professional learning. The development of children's mathematical reasoning requires appropriate encouragement and feedback from their teacher who can only do this if they recognise…

MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
International research suggests that early mathematical competences predicts later mathematical outcomes. In this paper, we build on our previous study of young children's mathematical competencies (MacDonald & Carmichael, 2015) to explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and…

Itter, Diane; Meyers, Noel – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2017
Preservice teachers graduate from an education system that shapes their mathematical understandings, beliefs and attitudes, and then re-enter that system to shape their own students' mathematical understandings, beliefs, and attitudes. Unfortunately, many of our future teachers have developed negative attitudes symptomatic of a self-perpetuating…
