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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Vos, Pauline – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
In this paper we explore how students can experience the relevance of mathematical modelling activities. In the literature we found that relevance is a connection among several issues (relevance of what? to whom? according to whom? and to what end?). We framed this concept in terms of Cultural-Historical Activity Theory (CHAT), a theory for…

Villarreal, Mónica E.; Esteley, Cristina B.; Smith, Silvina – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper presents issues related to the use of technology by secondary school pre-service mathematics teachers engaged in open mathematical modelling projects. Pre-service teachers developed these projects within a regular mathematics education course during the teacher education program at the university concerned. This environment, called a…

English, Lyn D. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
With ongoing concerns about environments that push teachers toward increasingly structured assessments, thus reducing opportunities to observe young learners' mathematical capabilities, the publication of this special issue on formative assessment is especially significant and timely. The articles illustrate how we cannot rely solely on…
