Morais, Adolfo; Barragués, José Ignacio; Guisasola, Jenaro – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
This work describes the design and evaluation of a proposal to use Classroom Response Systems (CRS), intended to promote participative classes of Mathematics at University. The proposal is based on Problem Based Learnig (PBL) and uses Robert's six hypotheses for mathematical teaching-learning. The results show that PBL is a relevant strategy to…

Yáñez-Marquina, Lara; Villardón-Gallego, Lourdes – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2016
Introduction: In secondary education, students' low achievement and engagement in mathematics are closely related to their attitudes towards the subject. Despite the international body of research, an exhaustive literature review of the existing instruments for measuring it draws attention to the inconsistency in the definition and corresponding…

Cárcamo Bahamonde, Andrea; Gómez Urgelles, Joan; Fortuny Aymemí, Josep – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2016
The modern dynamic world requires that basic science courses for engineering, including linear algebra, emphasise the development of mathematical abilities primarily associated with modelling and interpreting, which are not exclusively calculus abilities. Considering this, an instructional design was created based on mathematical modelling and…

Vila, Francisca; Sanz, Amparo – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
The importance of mathematical literacy in any scientific career is widely recognized. However, various studies report lack of numeracy and mathematical literacy in students from various countries. In the present work, we present a detailed study of the mathematical literacy of Spanish undergraduate students of Biology enrolled in a Plant…

Gonzalez, Maria Jose; González-Ruiz, Ignacio – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
Teachers' beliefs, together with sound technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK), are directly related to the effective integration of technology in mathematics teaching. This study explored the relationship between pre-service teachers' behavioural intention to use technology to teach mathematics and their TPACK. A case-study analysis…

García-Carrión, Rocío; Díez-Palomar, Javier – European Educational Research Journal, 2015
Schools as learning communities have been recommended by the European Commission as an effective model to support school quality and development. Aiming at studying how these schools are achieving such positive results, this article focuses on the analysis of a particular classroom intervention called "interactive groups". A five-year…

Novo, María-Luisa; Alsina, Ángel; Marbán, José-María; Berciano, Ainhoa – Comunicar: Media Education Research Journal, 2017
The construction of a connective brain begins at the earliest ages of human development. However, knowledge about individual and collective brains provided so far by research has been rarely incorporated into Maths in Early Childhood classrooms. In spite of that, it is obvious that it is at these ages when the learning of mathematics acts as a…

Fedriani, Eugenio M.; Moyano, Rafael – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
Finding educational truths is an inherently multivariate problem. There are many factors affecting each student and their performances. Because of this, both measuring of skills and assessing students are always complex processes. This is a well-known problem, and a number of solutions have been proposed by specialists. One of its ramifications is…

Prieto, Nuria Joglar; Sordo Juanena, José María; Star, Jon R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
The information and communication technologies of Web 2.0 are arriving in our schools, allowing the design and implementation of new learning environments with great educational potential. This article proposes a pedagogical model based on a new geometry technology-integrated learning environment, called "Geometry 2.0," which was tested…

Cárcamo Bahamonde, Andrea Dorila; Fortuny Aymemí, Josep Maria; Gómez i Urgellés, Joan Vicenç – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
In this article we present a didactic proposal for teaching linear algebra based on two compatible theoretical models: emergent models and mathematical modelling. This proposal begins with a problematic situation related to the creation and use of secure passwords, which leads students toward the construction of the concepts of spanning set and…

Zorrilla-Silvestre, Lorena; Presentación-Herrero, María Jesús; Gil-Gómez, Jesús – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2016
Introduction: This study explored the variables of executive functioning (EF) that permitted the evaluation of EF both at home and at school. The objective was to compare the results of the evaluations of these functions in children aged 5 to 6 years, and see to what extent these variables predicted mathematics performance best. Method: Sixty-six…

Gasco, Javier; Villarroel, Jose-Domingo – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2014
Introduction: Motivation is an important factor in the learning of mathematics. Within this area of education, word problem solving is central in most mathematics curricula of Secondary School. The objective of this research is to detect the differences in motivation in terms of the strategies used to solve word problems. Method: It analyzed the…

Guiu, Jordi Maja – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2012
In this paper different type of mathematical explanations are presented in relation to the mathematical problem of probabilities Monty Hall (card version) and the computational tool Latent Semantic Analyses (LSA) is used. At the moment the results in the literature about this computational tool to study texts show that this technique is…

Almeida, Rut; Bruno, Alicia; Perdomo-Díaz, Josefa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This paper presents some results of an investigation on the number sense of a group of pre-service secondary teachers from Spain. The objective of this research was to analyze students' use of strategies associated to number sense and compare them with those obtained in a previous study with pre-service primary teachers in Taiwan, (Yang, Reys…
