Ikeda, Toshikazu – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

Recognizing the roles of mathematics in society is an important goal for the teaching and learning of mathematical modelling. The Likert-scales method is a simple and effective tool to assess student appreciation about the utility of mathematics; however, it does not reveal the detailed aspects of student perceptions of the roles of mathematics in…

Moschkovich, Judit; Zahner, William – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

This paper illustrates how the academic literacy in mathematics framework (Moschkovich, J Math Behav 40:43-62, 2015) can be used to uncover the multiple layers of work bilingual learners accomplish during mathematical discussions. Using this framework allows researchers to examine students' joint mathematical activity in terms of mathematical…

Ng, Kit Ee Dawn – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

Despite the incorporation of mathematical modelling in the Singapore mathematics curriculum framework since 2007, Singapore teachers still face readiness issues concerning the use of open-ended real-world problems. This paper presents some preliminary findings from an exploratory study undertaken within a professional development programme on…

Kaur, Berinderjeet – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

This paper explores the impact of the course "Teaching and Learning of Mathematics (Grades 7 and 8)" for the preparation of pre-service secondary mathematics teachers. It examines how pre-service teachers perceived mathematical problem solving and communicating mathematical knowledge before and after the course. The main objective of the…

Alshwaikh, Jehad; Morgan, Candia – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

The way in which mathematics is communicated and represented in schools (including the written language, symbols and diagrams of mathematics textbooks and the verbal/spoken classroom interaction itself) constructs particular views of the nature of mathematics and expectations about students' participation in mathematical activity. In a previous…

Sheffield, Linda Jensen – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

A number of myths about mathematically gifted students, mathematics itself, and programs designed to serve these students tend to inhibit educators, parents and students themselves from developing students' mathematical creativity, expertise and enjoyment. This paper discusses some of the myths that can discourage students' mathematical…

Niss, Mogens; Bruder, Regina; Planas, Núria; Turner, Ross; Villa-Ochoa, Jhony Alexander – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016

This paper presents the outcomes of the work of the ICME 13 Survey Team on "Conceptualisation and the role of competencies, knowing and knowledge in mathematics education research". It surveys a variety of historical and contemporary views and conceptualisations of what it means to master mathematics, focusing on notions such as…

Kuzniak, Alain; Nechache, Assia; Drouhard, J. P. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016

According to our approach to mathematics education, the optimal aim of the teaching of mathematics is to assist students in achieving efficient mathematical work. But, what does efficient exactly mean in that case? And how can teachers reach this objective? The model of Mathematical Working Spaces with its three dimensions--semiotic, instrumental,…

O'Halloran, Kay L.; Beezer, Robert A.; Farmer, David W. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

This paper adopts a multimodal approach to the latest generation of digital mathematics textbooks (print and online) to investigate how the design, content, and features facilitate the construction of mathematical knowledge for teaching and learning purposes. The sequential organization of the print version is compared to the interactive format of…

Schukajlow, S.; Kaiser, G.; Stillman, G. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

The teaching and learning of mathematical modelling is an important research field all over the world. In this paper we present a survey of the state-of-the-art on empirical studies in this field. We analyse the development of studies focusing on cognitive aspects of the promotion of modelling, i.e. the promotion of modelling abilities resp.…

Sriraman, Bharath; Dickman, Benjamin – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017

In this paper, the role of mathematical pathologies as a means of fostering creativity in the classroom is discussed. In particular, it delves into what constitutes a mathematical pathology, examines historical mathematical pathologies as well as pathologies in contemporary classrooms, and indicates how the Lakatosian heuristic can be used to…

Frejd, Peter; Bergsten, Christer – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

The notion of mathematical modelling has multiple interpretations in research literature and has been included in curriculum documents in various ways. This study presents a thematic analysis of nine professional modellers' conceptions of the notion of mathematical modelling, representing scholarly knowledge. The result is organised according to…

de Almeida, Lourdes Maria Werle – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018

This paper aims to investigate the following question: How do students use mathematics in modeling activities? With this purpose, the paper reports on mathematization and use of mathematics, and deals with empirical data with focus on modeling activities performed by students in the first year and in the fourth year of a degree in mathematics.…

Wager, Anita A.; Parks, Amy Noelle – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016

In this paper the authors demonstrate how play can serve as a space for assessing and promoting children's mathematical thinking. Analyzing data from a larger study of professional development to support culturally and developmentally responsive mathematics teaching in preschool, we found that through Learning Stories, a holistic narrative…
