Jarvis, Daniel; Butreau, Chantel; Doran, Charles; Novoseltsev, Andrey – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
In this paper, we report on a case study that focused on innovative uses of CAS technology in university mathematics teaching and assessment. The study involved a site visit to the University of Alberta campus (June 2015) during which: interviews were conducted with five mathematics faculty members and seven mathematics students; math lectures…

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…

Sedig, Kamran – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008
Many children do not like learning mathematics. They do not find mathematics fun, motivating, and engaging, and they think it is difficult to learn. Computer-based games have the potential and possibility of addressing this problem. This paper proposes a strategy for designing game-based learning environments that takes advantage of the…

Alexander, Curby; Knezek, Gerald; Christensen, Rhonda; Tyler-Wood, Tandra; Bull, Glen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
Researchers in this study looked at the effect of content-specific, technology-rich project-based learning activities on EC-8 pre-service teachers' competencies and skills, as well as pre-service teacher's attitudes toward science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Researchers employed a quantitative design involving participants in…

Simonovits, Reinhard; McElroy, Jim; O'Loughlin, James; Townsend, Colin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
The overall aim of the project is to allow for the collaboration of high school students of different European countries on small, selected maths topics. This involves the use of technology, student mobility and English language competency. Benefits are also expected to accrue to teachers of mathematics by providing the opportunity to work with…

Park, Jungho – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Much research has been conducted in educational robotics, a new instructional technology, for K-12 education. However, there are arguments on the effect of robotics and limited empirical evidence to investigate the impact of robotics in science learning. Also most robotics studies were carried in an informal educational setting. This study…

Curtis, Anthony – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
Student affect was measured and compared with their overall learning outcome scores. There was a significant difference among the student affect scores (F = 4.52; df = 3, 444; p < 0.01). Among the affect items measured, only Progress Monitoring Information was significantly regressed on overall learning outcome scores (F = 5.45; df = 1, 103; p…

Serfaty de Markus, Alicia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
This quasi-treatment study, using a non-equivalent group design, explored how a set of animations related to various concepts in algebra impacted students' ability to learn as measured by changes in quiz and test scores. The concepts that were investigated were addition and subtraction of rational expressions, solving equations involving rational…

Labrensz, Jonathan; Ayebo, Abraham – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of using Personal Learning Devices as interactive white boards on students' learning and engagement. The study took place in an Algebra 2 classroom during the 2015-2016 school year. Baseline scores were gathered in the fall of 2015 and control and experimental scores were gathered in the…

Fleener, M. Jayne – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1995
Middle school and secondary mathematics teachers' (n=94) responses on the Attitude Instrument for Mathematics and Applied Technology were analyzed to determine relationships among personal philosophy, experience, and attitudes about calculator use. Interactions between mastery orientation (calculator use before versus after conceptual mastery) and…
