Ekawati, Rooselyna; Lin, Fou-Lai; Yang, Kai-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015

In this study, we developed an instrument for assessing teachers' mathematics content knowledge (MCK) on ratio and proportion and examined the profile of Indonesian primary teacher's MCK on this topic. The MCK items were administered to 271 Indonesian in-service primary teachers with a variety of educational backgrounds and teaching experiences.…

Gravemeijer, Koeno; Stephan, Michelle; Julie, Cyril; Lin, Fou-Lai; Ohtani, Minoru – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

This paper attempts to engage the field in a discussion about what mathematics is needed for students to engage in society, especially with an increase in technology and digitalization. In this respect, mathematics holds a special place in STEM as machines do most of the calculations that students are taught in K-12. We raise questions about what…

Naresh, Nirmala – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015

Workplace mathematics, a subgroup of research on everyday mathematics and ethnomathematics documents the mathematical activities of both adults and children outside school settings. In this paper, I document the mental mathematical activities of a group of bus conductors in Chennai, India. I draw into the research areas of mental computation and…

Maulana, Ridwan; Opdenakker, Marie-Christine; den Brok, Perry; Bosker, Roel J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012

This study is aimed at describing profiles of interpersonal behavior of Indonesian mathematics teachers and examining associations between students' perceptions of their mathematics teachers' interpersonal behavior and their motivation in learning mathematics. Data were collected with the Indonesian version of the Questionnaire on Teacher…

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…

Rach, Stefanie; Heinze, Aiso – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

Particularly in mathematics, the transition from school to university often appears to be a substantial hurdle in the individual learning biography. Differences between the characters of school mathematics and scientific university mathematics as well as different demands related to the learning cultures in both institutions are discussed as…

Jacinto, Hélia; Carreira, Susana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

This study offers a view on students' technology-based problem solving activity through the lens of a theoretical model which accounts for the relationship between mathematical and technological knowledge in successful problem solving. This study takes a qualitative approach building on the work of a 13-year-old girl as an exemplary case of the…

Kim, Dong-Joong; Lim, Woong – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018

This study compares English- and Korean-speaking university students' colloquial and mathematical discourses on the notion and practice of limit. There exists a lexical discontinuity in Korean with the word limit, since the mathematical word for limit is not commonly used as a colloquial word in Korean, unlike its use in English. This study…

Rahayu, Sri; Kita, Masakazu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010

This study investigated Indonesian and Japanese students' understandings of macroscopic and submicroscopic levels of representing matter and its changes and the difficulties they have with these concepts. A multiple-choice questionnaire was constructed and delivered to 447 Indonesian and 446 Japanese public senior high school students. The data…

Johansson, Helena – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

This paper focuses on one aspect of mathematical competence, namely mathematical reasoning, and how this competency influences students' knowing of physics. This influence was studied by analysing the mathematical reasoning requirements upper secondary students meet when solving tasks in national physics tests. National tests are constructed to…

Kotelawala, Usha – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

This report examines teachers' self-espoused attitudes and beliefs on proving in the secondary mathematics classroom. Conclusions were based on a questionnaire of 78 US mathematics teachers who had completed at least 2 years of teaching mathematics at the secondary level. While these teachers placed importance on proving as a general mathematical…

Kang, Rui; Liu, Di – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018

This article describes a study of how Chinese preservice teachers unpacked a learning goal pertaining to adding fractions and understanding the concepts underlying the operation. Based on work in the USA by Morris, Hiebert, and Spizter ("Journal for Research in Mathematics Education," 40(5), 491-529, 2009), 50 Chinese preservice teachers…

Pettersen, Andreas; Nortvedt, Guri A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018

In more and more countries, the goal of mathematics education is to develop students' mathematical competence beyond procedural and conceptual knowledge. Thus, students need to engage in a rich variety of tasks comprising competencies such as communication, reasoning and problem-solving. In addition, assessment tasks should be constructed to…

Guerrero-Ortiz, Carolina; Mena-Lorca, Jaime; Soto, Astrid Morales – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018

This study shows how, in the initial training of mathematics teachers, it is possible to promote processes of abstraction and mathematisation through modelling a real situation with the support of auxiliary material to mediate understanding. By adapting elements of the theoretical and methodological framework called Abstraction in Context (AiC),…

Zazkis, Dov; Zazkis, Rina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

A significant body of research literature in mathematics education attends to mathematical proofs. However, scant research attends to proof comprehension, which is the focus of this study. We examine perspective secondary teachers' conceptions of what constitutes comprehension of a given proof and their ideas of how students' comprehension can be…
