Kaune, Christa; Cohors-Fresenborg, Elmar; Nowinska, Edyta – Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, 2011
We report on a German-Indonesian design research project, which aims to significantly increase the mathematical skills of secondary school students. Since results of international comparative studies have shown that there exists a relationship between metacognition and learning success, a learning environment for the beginning with secondary…

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…

Buchholtz, Nils Frederik – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper reports on a longitudinal mixed methods evaluation study on the acquisition and development of mathematical pedagogical content knowledge (MPCK) of future teachers at several German universities. The study is a German supplementary study to the international comparative TEDS-M 2008 study. Besides the pedagogical content knowledge that…

Anders, Yvonne; Rossbach, Hans-Günther – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 2015
Without a doubt, math-related pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), pedagogical beliefs, and emotional attitudes are considered important dimensions of preschool teachers' professional competence. This research, however, documents that they are still understudied. This study focuses on certain aspects of the described dimensions: the sensitivity…

Hennig, Markus; Mertsching, Bärbel; Hilkenmeier, Frederic – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2015
The initial phase of undergraduate engineering degree programmes often comprises courses requiring mathematical expertise which in some cases clearly exceeds school mathematics, but will be imparted only later in mathematics courses. In this article, an approach addressing this challenge by way of example within a "fundamentals of electrical…

Mischo, Christoph; Maaß, Katja – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2013
This paper presents an intervention study whose aim was to promote teacher beliefs about mathematics and learning mathematics and student competences in mathematical modeling. In the intervention, teachers received written curriculum materials about mathematical modeling. The concept underlying the materials was based on constructivist ideas and…

Liu, Jie; Utemov, Vyacheslav V.; Kalimullin, Aydar M. – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
The Russian and international legislation ensure equal educational rights to all people regardless of whether have a disability or not. However, traditional approaches to organization of educational activities often do not provide a high enough level of education (including higher education) for people with disabilities as they do not take into…

Zhou, Ji; Urhahne, Detlef – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
Based on Weiner's attributional theory of intrapersonal motivation, the mediating effect of attributions between teacher judgment and student motivation was examined. In two studies, 144 German and 272 Chinese fourth-grade elementary school students were tested on their mathematical achievement, causal ascriptions for success and failure,…

Schnell, Susanne; Prediger, Susanne – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
Whereas equity issues are mainly discussed with respect to students at risk, this article focuses on mathematical potentials of under-privileged students and therefore elaborates a wide, dynamic and participatory conceptualization of (sometimes still hidden) mathematical potentials. An extended research review theoretically and empirically grounds…

Pankow, Lena; Kaiser, Gabriele; Busse, Andreas; König, Johannes; Blömeke, Sigrid; Hoth, Jessica; Döhrmann, Martina – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
The paper presents results from a computer-based assessment in which 171 early career mathematics teachers from Germany were asked to anticipate typical student errors on a given mathematical topic and identify them under time constraints. Fast and accurate perception and knowledge-based judgments are widely accepted characteristics of teacher…

Prediger, Susanne; Zindel, Carina – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This article combines different conceptualizations of teachers' diagnostic competence in listening to students' mathematical thinking processes on the levels of general perspectives, noticed aspects and activated didactic categories. An empirical study of 159 prospective mathematics teachers' diagnostic judgments investigated how these levels are…

Pavlekovic, Margita, Ed.; Kolar-Begovic, Zdenka, Ed.; Kolar-Super, Ruzica, Ed. – Online Submission, 2013
The universities and faculties which educate teachers of mathematics for teaching pupils/students of any age group from pre-school age to higher education carefully monitor and compare valuable results of this research, detect the areas in which the mathematical achievements of pupils should be improved at the national level and propose the ways…

Kolar-Begovic, Zdenka, Ed.; Kolar-Šuper, Ružica, Ed.; Jukic Matic, Ljerka, Ed. – Online Submission, 2017
The papers in the monograph address different topics related to mathematics teaching and learning processes which are of great interest to both students and prospective teachers. Some papers open new research questions, some show examples of good practice and others provide more information about earlier findings. The monograph consists of six…

Prediger, Susanne; Erath, Kirstin – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2014
How do students learn to explain? We take this exemplary research question for presenting two antagonist traditions in German mathematics education research and their synthesis in an ongoing video study. These two traditions are (1) the German Didaktik approach that can be characterized by its epistemologically sensitive analyses and…

Neumann, Irene; Rösken-Winter, Bettina; Lehmann, Malte; Duchhardt, Christoph; Heinze, Aiso; Nickolaus, Reinhold – Peabody Journal of Education, 2015
This article reports about our efforts to determine engineering students' competence in mathematics. Our research is embedded in a larger project, KoM@ING--"Modeling and developing competence: Integrated IRT based and qualitative studies with a focus on mathematics and its usage in engineering studies", within the program "Modeling…
