Liggett, Robert Scott – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2017
Today's society places a lot of pressure on schools, teachers, and students to improve test scores. This paper discusses the possibility of using mathematical manipulatives to improve student test scores and students' attitudes towards mathematics. Forty-three Grade 2 students with age ranges between six and eight from a rural town in Saskatchewan…

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…

Pegg, Jerine; Wiseman, Dawn; Brown, Carol – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This review focuses on science education contributions to the "Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education" (CJSMTE) from January 2001 through December 2014. Through a combination of content and citation analysis, we examine the journal as a location for conversations around specific themes and broader ideas related…

Gula, Taras; Hoessler, Carolyn; Maciejewski, Wes – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Many students enter the Canadian college system with insufficient mathematical ability and leave the system with little improvement. Those students who enter with poor mathematics ability typically take a developmental mathematics course as their first and possibly only mathematics course. The educational experiences that comprise a developmental…

Hare, Andrew; Ng, Oi-Lam – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
In this article, we review the publications served by the "Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education" in the past 15 years, specific to the field of mathematics education, and make connections with development of the field. In particular, we adopt current Editor-in-Chief John Wallace's (2009) approach of…

Wiest, John – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This article reports on a study investigating how postsecondary students interact with mathematical proofs with a focus on how they go about unpacking a "received proof," how they make meaning from what they are given, and whether they believe that mathematical meaning can be drawn from such proofs. Case studies were conducted with seven…

Radakovic, Nenad – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
Research in mathematics education stresses the importance of content knowledge in solving authentic tasks in statistics and in risk-based decision making. Existing research supports the claim that students rely on content knowledge and context expertise to make sense of data. In this article, however, I present evidence that the relationship…

Kajander, Ann; Lovric, Miroslav – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
As part of recent scrutiny of teacher capacity, the question of teachers' content knowledge of higher level mathematics emerges as important to the field of mathematics education. Elementary teachers in North America and some other countries tend to be subject generalists, yet it appears that some higher level mathematics background may be…

Code, Warren; Merchant, Sandra; Maciejewski, Wes; Thomas, Matthew; Lo, Joseph – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
One goal of an undergraduate education in mathematics is to help students develop a productive disposition towards mathematics. A way of conceiving of this is as helping mathematical novices transition to more expert-like perceptions of mathematics. This conceptualization creates a need for a way to characterize students' perceptions of…

Brandt, Jim; Lunt, Jana; Meilstrup, Gretchen Rimmasch – PRIMUS, 2016
Educators often argue that mathematics should be taught so that the students in the course are actually "doing mathematics." Is there a consensus among mathematicians and mathematics educators as to the meaning of "doing mathematics?" In an effort to answer this question, we administered a survey to hundreds of university-level…

Culligan, Karla; Wagner, David – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
While all mathematics is mediated by language, the role of language is especially complex in bi- and multilingual mathematics classrooms, and more so in bilingual education programs in which the explicit goals of both language and mathematics learning intersect. We explore bilingual French immersion students' linguistic and mathematical…

Marshall, Neil; Buteau, Chantal – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2014
As part of their undergraduate mathematics curriculum, students at Brock University learn to create and use computer-based tools with dynamic, visual interfaces, called Exploratory Objects, developed for the purpose of conducting pure or applied mathematical investigations. A student's Development Process Model of creating and using an Exploratory…

Hillman, Thomas – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2014
This article examines mathematical activity with digital technology by tracing it from its development through its use in classrooms. Drawing on material-semiotic approaches from the field of Science and Technology Studies, it examines the visions of mathematical activity that developers had for an advanced graphing calculator. It then follows the…
