Inglis, Matthew; Foster, Colin – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Mathematics educators have been publishing their work in international research journals for nearly 5 decades. How has the field developed over this period? We analyzed the full text of all articles published in "Educational Studies in Mathematics" and the "Journal for Research in Mathematics Education" since their foundation.…

Aziza, Mela – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2018
Questioning has an important role in teaching mathematics. There is current research about questioning, especially related to class discussion and students' responses. Some researchers suggest teachers pose any kind of questions in mathematics classroom regarding problem solving and mathematical creativity. This research focused on a teacher's…

Tariq, Vicki N.; Qualter, Pamela; Roberts, Sian; Appleby, Yvon; Barnes, Lynne – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
This empirical study explores the roles that Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Emotional Self-Efficacy (ESE) play in undergraduates' mathematical literacy, and the influence of EI and ESE on students' attitudes towards and beliefs about mathematics. A convenience sample of 93 female and 82 male first-year undergraduates completed a test of…

Biza, Irene; Nardi, Elena; Joel, Gareth – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2015
In this paper we present the results from a study in which 21 mathematics trainee teachers engage with two practice-based tasks in which classroom management interferes with mathematical learning. We investigate the trainees' considerations when they make decisions in classroom situations and how these tasks can trigger their reflections on the…

Sangwin, Christopher J.; O'Toole, Claire – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper reports a study which investigated the extent to which undergraduate mathematics students in the United Kingdom are currently taught to programme a computer as a core part of their mathematics degree programme. We undertook an online survey, with significant follow-up correspondence, to gather data on current curricula and received…

Darlington, Ellie – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2015
It is well documented in both the British press and mathematics education literature that many consider A-levels (qualifications for secondary school leavers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) to be insufficient preparation for undergraduate mathematics study in the UK. A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics are not solely intended for…

Warwick, Jon; Howard, Anna – e-Journal of Business Education and Scholarship of Teaching, 2015
When new students arrive at university to commence their undergraduate training they bring with them a host of prior experiences, expectations and beliefs. For students whose course of study includes mathematics these experiences, expectations and beliefs can be very strongly held and somewhat negative towards mathematics. In such cases they can…

Gueudet, Ghislaine; Pepin, Birgit – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2018
In this paper we introduce a link between the Theory of Didactical Situations and the Documentational Approach to Didactics, in order to study teaching/learning phenomena at the beginning of university mathematics studies. Specifically, we investigate the didactic contract at three levels: institutional, mathematical subject, and specific…

Hurst, Chris; Huntley, Ray – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Multiplicative thinking is a critical component of mathematics which largely determines the extent to which people develop mathematical understanding beyond middle primary years. We contend that there are several major issues, one being that much teaching about multiplicative ideas is focussed on algorithms and procedures. An associated issue is…

Messer, David; Thomas, Lucy; Holliman, Andrew; Kucirkova, Natalia – Education and Information Technologies, 2018
This investigation concerns two questions: (i) is simple educational programming with children, compared to working on mathematical tasks, more effective in increasing scores in mathematical abilities, spatial awareness and working memory? (ii) is educational programming on a digital device, compared to similar paper and pencil programming…

Foster, Colin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This paper addresses ways in which mathematics pedagogy can benefit from insights gleaned from counselling. Person-centred counselling stresses the value of genuineness, warm empathetic listening and minimal intervention to support people in solving their own problems and developing increased autonomy. Such an approach contrasts starkly with the…

Nunes, Terezinha; Bryant, Peter; Evans, Deborah; Barros, Rossana – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2015
Before starting school, many children reason logically about concepts that are basic to their later mathematical learning. We describe a measure of quantitative reasoning that was administered to children at school entry (mean age 5.8 years) and accounted for more variance in a mathematical attainment test than general cognitive ability 16 months…

Ingram, Jenni; Sammons, Pam; Lindorff, Ariel – Education Development Trust, 2018
This review examines a range of lesson observation frameworks designed for and used in the observation of teaching in mathematics. This includes frameworks specifically designed for international comparisons of teaching practices and teacher effectiveness, as well as those used for teaching development. Five chapters focus on: (1) Introduction…

Povey, Hilary – Science & Education, 2014
This article develops the argument that students in initial teacher education benefit in terms of who they are becoming from developing awareness of and engagement in the history of mathematics. Initially, current school mathematics practices in the UK are considered and challenged. Then the role of teachers' relationship to mathematical subject…

Hudson, Brian – London Review of Education, 2018
This article contributes to current debates on progressive, knowledge-based approaches to the curriculum by addressing the question of what it is that students are entitled to learn in school mathematics. From the outset it recognizes progressive arguments that teaching should be reconnected with the emancipatory ambitions of education. In doing…
