Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This paper was prepared in response to the Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences recommendations for the preparation of secondary teachers. It shows how using trigonometry as a conceptual tool in spreadsheet-based applications enables one to develop mathematical understanding in the context of constructing geometric representations of unit…

Levi, Inessa; Chahine, Iman; Garrett, Lauretta; Wang, Haifeng – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

Difficulties in general education mathematics courses may be attributed to many factors, primarily low proficiency in symbol manipulation, a perception that mathematics is an area which eludes mastery, a lack of engagement and effective practice. Educational technology can be a powerful aid in overcoming these factors. This work describes the…

Bringslid, Odd – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The projects Xmath (Bringslid and Canessa, 2002) and dMath (Bringslid, de la Villa and Rodriguez, 2007) were supported by the European Commission in the so called Minerva Action (Xmath) and The Leonardo da Vinci programme (dMath). The Xmath eBook (Bringslid, 2006) includes algorithms into a wide range of undergraduate mathematical issues embedded…

Abramovich, Sergei; Ehrlich, Amos – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2007

Inequalities are considered among the most useful tools of investigation in pure and applied mathematics; yet their didactical aspects have not received much attention in mathematics education research until recently. An important aspect of teaching problem solving at the secondary level deals with the notion of equivalence of algebraic…

Santos-Trigo, Manuel; Cristobal-Escalante, Cesar – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

This study documents problem solving approaches that high school students develop as a result of using systematically Cabri-Geometry software. Results show that the use of the software becomes an important tool for students to construct dynamic representations of the problems that were used to identify and examine different mathematical relations.…

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…

Ketamo, Harri; Alajaaski, Jarkko – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

A revising/replenishment study course in basic mathematics is experienced as being almost a necessity at the beginning of technology studies at the Tampere University of Technology, Pori, Finland. This is to avoid early dropouts in actual engineering mathematics courses. Experimental research on factors explaining successful revision of…

Hohenwarter, Judith; Hohenwarter, Markus; Lavicza, Zsolt – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This paper describes a study aimed to identify most common impediments related to the introduction of an open-source mathematical software package GeoGebra. We report on the analysis of data collected during a three-week professional development programme organised for middle and high school teachers in Florida. The study identified challenges…

Wigmore, Angela; Hunter, Gordon; Pflugel, Eckhard; Denholm-Price, James; Binelli, Vincent – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

Speech technology--especially automatic speech recognition--has now advanced to a level where it can be of great benefit both to able-bodied people and those with various disabilities. In this paper we describe an application "TalkMaths" which, using the output from a commonly-used conventional automatic speech recognition system,…

Khadivi, Mohammad – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006

The purpose of this article is five-fold: (1) to elaborate on mathematical pedagogy, the application of mathematics, the misunderstanding and the myth around this powerful language; (2) to explain the differences between theoretical solutions and constructive solutions; (3) to explain the influence of technology and its pivotal--in many cases,…

Lavicza, Zsolt – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) is becoming increasingly important and widespread in mathematics research and teaching. In this paper, I will report on a questionnaire study enquiring about mathematicians' use of CAS in mathematics teaching in three countries; the United States, the United Kingdom, and Hungary. Based on the responses…

Heck, Andre; Kedzierska, Ewa; Ellermeijer, Ton – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

In this paper we report on the sustained research and development work at the AMSTEL Institute of the University of Amsterdam to improve mathematics and science education at primary and secondary school level, which has lead amongst other things to the development of the integrated computer working environment Coach 6. This environment consists of…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This paper was developed with the goal of enhancing the mathematical preparation of secondary school teachers in the technological paradigm. It shows how two-variable inequalities can be utilized as models for the construction of geometric objects using the software Graphing Calculator 3.5 (produced by Pacific Tech) as a relation grapher. An…

Ocak, Mehmet – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

This correlational study examined the relationship between gender and the students' attitude and prior knowledge of using one of the mathematical software programs (MATLAB). Participants were selected from one community college, one state university and one private college. Students were volunteers from three Calculus I classrooms (one class from…

Haake, Magnus; Husain, Layla; Gulz, Agneta – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015

There is substantial evidence that preschooler's performance in early math is highly correlated to math performance throughout school as well as academic skills in general. One way to help children attain early math skills is by using targeted educational software and the paper discusses potential gains of using such software to support early math…
