Dockendorff, Monika; Solar, Horacio – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

This case study investigates the impact of the integration of information and communications technology (ICT) in mathematics visualization skills and initial teacher education programmes. It reports on the influence GeoGebra dynamic software use has on promoting mathematical learning at secondary school and on its impact on teachers' conceptions…

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…

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…

More, M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

We bring out an experience of organizing mathematical competitions that can be used as a medium to motivate the student and teacher minds in new directions of thinking. This can contribute to fostering research, innovation and provide a hands-on experience of mathematical concepts with the real world. Mathematical competitions can be used to build…

Jankvist, Uffe Thomas; Mosvold, Reidar; Fauskanger, Janne; Jakobsen, Arne – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

In this article, we analyse three "classical" cases of using history of mathematics in teacher training and reinterpret them using the framework of mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). We continue with a discussion of the potential benefits of applying MKT as a framework for discussion in research related to the use of history in…

Teledahl, Anna – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

This study investigates young students' writing in connection to mathematical problem solving. Students' written communication has traditionally been used by mathematics teachers in the assessment of students' mathematical knowledge. This study rests on the notion that this writing represents a particular activity which requires a complex set of…

Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013

Mexican authorities and universities are actively working to improve mathematics teaching and learning across the education system. Thus, efforts are underway to raise the historically low performance in mathematics, which include theoretically grounded pedagogy and curriculum development to raise mathematical knowledge in teacher education…

Incikabi, Lutfi; Serin, Mehmet Koray – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Most science departments offer compulsory mathematics courses to their students with the expectation that students can apply their experience from the mathematics courses to other fields of study, including science. The current study first aims to investigate the views of pre-service science teachers of science-teaching preparation degrees and…

Flegg, Jennifer; Mallet, Dann; Lupton, Mandy – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012

In this article, we report on the findings of an exploratory study into the experience of students as they learn first year engineering mathematics. Here we define engineering as the application of mathematics and sciences to the building and design of projects for the use of society [M. Kirschenman and B. Brenner, "Education for Civil…

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…

Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri; Puteri, Indira; Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy; Rika, Baiq – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

This study examined student mathematical engagement through the intended and enacted lessons taught by two teachers in two different middle schools in Indonesia. The intended lesson was developed using the ELPSA learning design to promote mathematical engagement. Based on the premise that students will react to the mathematical tasks in the forms…

Jones, Stephen L. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Dr RL Moore was undoubtedly one of the finest mathematics teachers ever. He developed a unique teaching method designed to teach his students to think like mathematicians. His method was not designed to convey any particular mathematical knowledge. Instead, it was designed to teach his students to think. Today, his method has been modified to…

Kar, Tugrul; Güler, Gürsel; Sen, Ceylan; Özdemir, Ercan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

This study analyzed the methods used to teach the multiplication of fractions in Turkish and American textbooks. Two Turkish textbooks and two American textbooks, "Everyday Mathematics" (EM) and "Connected Mathematics 3" (CM), were analyzed. The analyses focused on the content and the nature of the mathematical problems…

Sigler, Avi; Stupel, Moshe; Flores, Alfinio – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Students use GeoGebra to explore the mathematical relations among different radii of circles in a triangle (circumcircle, incircle, excircles) and the sides and other segments in the triangle. The more formal mathematical development of the relations that follows the explorations is based on known geometrical properties, different formulas…

Flores, Alfinio; Park, Jungeun – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

We discuss how mathematics and secondary mathematics education majors developed an understanding of Fermat points for the triangle as well as Steiner points for the square and regular pentagon, and also of soap film configurations between parallel plates where forces are in equilibrium. The activities included the use of soap films and the…
