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…

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,…

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…

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…

Singer, Florence Mihaela; Sheffield, Linda Jensen; Leikin, Roza – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Creativity and giftedness in mathematics education research are topics of an increased interest in the education community during recent years. This introductory paper to the special issue on Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness in Mathematics Education has a twofold purpose: to offer a brief historical perspective on the study of creativity and…

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…

Ambrose, Don – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
This article employs an interdisciplinary approach to explore some psychological dimensions of mathematical creativity and the dogmatism that can emerge when mathematical applications are confined within a single worldview. More specifically, it explores some ways in which mathematics has been confined and distorted in service of dogmatic…

Scherer, Petra; Beswick, Kim; DeBlois, Lucie; Healy, Lulu; Opitz, Elisabeth Moser – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
When looking at teaching and learning processes in mathematics education students with mathematical learning difficulties or disabilities are of great interest. To approach the question of how research can support practice to assist these students one has to clarify the group or groups of students that we are talking about. The following…

Verschaffel, Lieven; Lehtinen, Erno; Van Dooren, Wim – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
In this commentary we take a critical look at the various studies being reported in this issue about the relationship between cognitive neuroscience and mathematics, from a mathematics education viewpoint. After a discussion of the individual contributions, which we have grouped into three categories--namely neuroscientific studies of (a)…

Lozano, Maria-Dolores – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper I introduce a methodological approach that can be useful for investigating relationships between mathematics tasks, mathematical classroom cultures and mathematics learning. This proposal responds to a need, identified in the literature, for "further research which uses alternative methods to understand student perspectives more…

Savard, Annie; Polotskaia, Elena – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Mathematical relationships are crucial elements to consider for learning mathematics. However, too often students pay more attention to the calculations to be done rather than the reasons for doing them. Relying on the relational paradigm to support elementary school students, we proposed two specially designed tasks to help students recognize and…

Steinbring, Heinz – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
On the surface, mathematical interaction often appears as an immediately transparent event that could be directly understood by careful observation. Theoretical considerations, however, clearly show that mathematical speaking and conversation in teaching-learning situations are highly complex social structures comprising many preconditions.…

Renkl, Alexander – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
This article discusses the relevance of the worked-example effect for mathematics education. This effect refers to the finding that, in initial cognitive skill acquisition, students profit more from studying worked examples as compared to solving problems. One reason for the effectiveness of worked examples is that the students get the opportunity…
