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…

MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
International research suggests that early mathematical competence predicts later mathematical achievement. In this article, we explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and later results on Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 "National Assessment Program -- Literacy and Numeracy" (NAPLAN)…

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…

Parra, Aldo; Trinick, Tony – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
An investigation into an aspect of indigenous education provides the opportunity to forefront an epistemological discussion about mathematical knowledge. This paper analyses indigenous peoples' educational experiences in Colombia and Aotearoa/New Zealand of mathematics education, focusing on, among other things, sociolinguistic issues such as…

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…

Fisher, Molly H.; Thomas, Jonathan; Schack, Edna O.; Jong, Cindy; Tassell, Janet – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
This study examined the impact of an intervention, focused on professional noticing of children's conceptual development in whole number and arithmetic reasoning, on preservice elementary teachers' (PSETs') professional noticing skills, attitudes toward mathematics, and mathematical knowledge for teaching mathematics. A video-based professional…

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…

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…

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…

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…
