MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
International research suggests that early mathematical competences predicts later mathematical outcomes. In this paper, we build on our previous study of young children's mathematical competencies (MacDonald & Carmichael, 2015) to explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and…

Linsell, Chris; Holmes, Marilyn; Sullivan, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
This paper examines the learning by students who were participating in a project designed to promote persistence while working on mathematical tasks. We examined their learning of mathematics concepts and learning about the processes of engaging in mathematical tasks. There were substantial increases in students' knowledge of angles and also…

Herbert, Sandra; Widjaja, Wanty; Bragg, Leicha A.; Loong, Esther; Vale, Colleen – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
Reasoning is an important aspect in the understanding and learning of mathematics. This paper reports on a case study presenting one Australian primary teacher's reflections regarding the role played by a professional learning program in her developing understanding of mathematical reasoning. Examination of the transcripts of two interviews…

Areepattamannil, Shaljan; Kaur, Berinderjeet – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
This study, drawing on data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011, examined whether mathematics teachers' perceptions of their students' mathematical competence were related to mathematics achievement, affect toward mathematics, and engagement in mathematics lessons among Grade 8 students in Singapore and…

Bardini, Caroline; Pierce, Robyn; Vincent, Jill – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
Analysis of mathematical notations must consider both syntactical aspects of symbols and the underpinning mathematical concept(s) conveyed. We argue that the construct of "syntax template" provides a theoretical framework to analyse undergraduate mathematics students' written solutions, where we have identified several types of…

Aventi, Belinda; Serow, Penelope; Tobias, Steve – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
Increasing pressure is mounting from all areas of society to maximise technology use within educational domains. Whilst curriculum documents call for the utilisation of technology as a teaching tool in the mathematics classroom, the benefits of exploring forms of dynamic mathematical software, such as GeoGebra, are often introduced in the senior…

Dalitz, James – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
This paper reports on a study that investigated the nature of the students' mathematical talk in an undergraduate mathematics study group. Study groups to support the learning of first year mathematics students are encouraged by mathematics educators. From nine recorded sessions, a session with a high quantity of mathematical talk and unfamiliar…

Parish, Linda – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
This theoretical paper outlines the process of defining "mathematical giftedness" for a present study on how primary school teaching shapes the mindsets of children who are mathematically gifted. Mathematical giftedness is not a badge of honour or some special value attributed to a child who has achieved something exceptional.…

Kaur, Berinderjeet; Areepattamannil, Shaljan – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
This study, drawing on date from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2009, examined the relationships of out-of-school-time mathematics lessons to mathematical literacy in Singapore and Australia. Results of two-level hierarchical linear modelling (HLM) analyses revealed that out-of-school-time enrichment lessons in…

Fielding-Wells, Jill – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
One potential means to develop students' contextual and conceptual understanding of mathematics is through Inquiry Learning. However, introducing a problem context can distract from mathematical content. Incorporating argumentation practices into Inquiry may address this through providing a stronger reliance on mathematical evidence and reasoning.…

Whitten, Damon – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
This paper explores how beliefs about mathematics may influence low-achieving adults' re-engagement with mathematics in the tertiary sector. Adult learners who have problematic mathematical histories often hold negative beliefs about the nature of mathematics and how it is learned. In New Zealand these adults are often required to re-engage in…

Hughes, Sally – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
This study explores the implications for mathematical knowledge and pedagogical practices of primary teachers in Papua New Guinea making a shift from a transmission approach to a connectionist approach to teaching mathematics. The research participants were engaged in a professional development program designed to support the teaching and learning…

Thompson, Zain; Hunter, Jodie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
In the current reform of mathematics classrooms teachers are charged with the role of facilitating collaborative groups during problem-solving activity. The challenge is for teachers to engage students in making mathematical meaning during collaborative group discussions. In this paper we draw on the concept of adaptive expertise to report on…

Dayal, Hem Chand – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
Researchers suggest that teachers' beliefs about teaching are strongly influenced by their personal experiences with mathematics. This study aimed to explore Pacific Island pre-service secondary mathematics teachers' perceptions about good and bad mathematics teachers. Thirty pre-service teachers, enrolled in a mathematics teaching methods course…

Wilson, Sue – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
Mathematics anxiety affects primary pre-service teachers' engagement with and future teaching of mathematics. The study aimed to assess the level and range of mathematics anxiety in first year pre-service teachers entering their teacher education course, and to investigate the sources of this anxiety as perceived and identified by them. Data…
