Jupri, Al; Drijvers, Paul; van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2014

Within mathematics curricula, algebra has been widely recognized as one of the most difficult topics, which leads to learning difficulties worldwide. In Indonesia, algebra performance is an important issue. In the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2007, Indonesian students' achievement in the algebra domain was…

Wijaya, Ariyadi; van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Marja; Doorman, Michiel – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015

In this study, we investigated teachers' teaching practices and their underlying beliefs regarding context-based tasks to find a possible explanation for students' difficulties with these tasks. The research started by surveying 27 Junior High School teachers from seven schools in Indonesia through a written questionnaire. Then, to further examine…

Mulligan, Joanne; Woolcott, Geoffrey; Mitchelmore, Michael; Davis, Brent – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018

Spatial reasoning, an emerging transdisciplinary area of interest to mathematics education research, is proving integral to all human learning. It is particularly critical to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. This project will create an innovative knowledge framework based on spatial reasoning that identifies new…

Bragg, Leicha A.; Herbert, Sandra; Loong, Esther Yoon-Kin; Vale, Colleen; Widjaja, Wanty – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016

Mathematical reasoning is now featured in the mathematics curriculum documents of many nations, but this necessitates changes to teaching practice and hence a need for professional learning. The development of children's mathematical reasoning requires appropriate encouragement and feedback from their teacher who can only do this if they recognise…

Yoon, Caroline; Chin, Sze Looi; Moala, John Griffith; Choy, Ban Heng – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018

Our project seeks to draw attention to the rich mathematical thinking that is generated when students work on contextual mathematising tasks. We use a design-based research approach to create ways of reporting that raise the visibility of this rich mathematical thinking while retaining and respecting its complexity. These reports will be aimed for…

Kyriakides, Andreas O.; Meletiou-Mavrotheris, Maria; Prodromou, Theodosia – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016

This article reports on the main experiences gained from a 2-year study which incorporated A.L.E.X., an educational puzzle game available on iPad or Android tablet devices, within the primary school mathematics curriculum. The study took place in a public primary school, located in a rural area of Cyprus. The majority of its students come from low…

Makar, Katie; Fielding-Wells, Jill – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018

The 3-year study described in this paper aims to create new knowledge about inquiry norms in primary mathematics classrooms. Mathematical inquiry addresses complex problems that contain ambiguities, yet classroom environments often do not adopt norms that promote curiosity, risk-taking and negotiation needed to productively engage with complex…

Guberman, Raisa; Gorev, Dvora – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015

The main objective of this study is to identify components of teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching, associated with the knowledge of mathematical horizon (KMH) in order to describe this type of knowledge from the viewpoint of elementary school mathematics teachers. The research population of this study consisted of 118 elementary school…

Lowrie, Tom; Jorgensen, Robyn – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018

Since the early 70s, there has been recognition that there are specific differences in achievement based on variables, such as gender and socio-economic background, in terms of mathematics performance. However, these differences are not unilateral but rather quite specific and relate strongly to spatial reasoning. This early work has paved the way…

Smith, Kim; Hodson, Elaine; Brown, Tony – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013

School mathematics is a function of its discursive environment where the language being used formats mathematical activity. The paper explores this theme through an extended example in which the conduct of mathematical teaching and learning is restricted by regulative educational policies. It considers how mathematics is discursively produced by…

Cable, John – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015

This article provides a critical evaluation of a technique of analysis, the "Social Activity Method," recently offered by Dowling (2013) as a "gift" to mathematics education. The method is found to be inadequate, firstly, because it employs a dichotomy (between "expression" and "content") instead of a finer…

Galligan, Linda; Hobohm, Carola; Peake, Katherine – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017

This study is situated in a course designed for both on-campus and online pre-service and in-service teachers, where student-created mathscasts provide a way for university lecturers to assess students' quality of teaching, and understanding of mathematics. Teachers and pre-service teachers, in a university course with 90% online enrolment, were…

Durksen, Tracy L.; Way, Jennifer; Bobis, Janette; Anderson, Judy; Skilling, Karen; Martin, Andrew J. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017

We started with a classic research question ("How do teachers motivate and engage middle year students in mathematics?") that is solidly underpinned and guided by an integration of two theoretical and multidimensional models. In particular, the current study illustrates how theory is important for guiding qualitative analytical…

Kasmer, Lisa – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013

In order to promote mathematical understanding among English Language Learners (ELLs), it is necessary to modify instructional strategies to effectively communicate mathematical content. This paper discusses the instructional strategies used by four pre-service teachers to teach mathematics to secondary students in English-medium schools in…
