Lesseig, Kristin – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
Research documenting teachers' fragile understanding of proof and how it is advanced suggests that enhancing the role of proof in school mathematics will demand substantial teacher learning. To date, there is little research detailing what mathematical knowledge might support the teaching of proof or how professional development (PD) might afford…

Su, Hui Fang Huang; Ricci, Frederick A.; Mnatsakanian, Mamikon – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
A teacher that emphasizes reasoning, logic and validity gives their students access to mathematics as an effective way of practicing critical thinking. All students have the ability to enhance and expand their critical thinking when learning mathematics. Students can develop this ability when confronting mathematical problems, identifying possible…

Ojaleye, Omotayo; Awofala, Adeneye O. A. – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2018
The contribution of algebra to a shared understanding of the world and the society is vital to the development of science, technology and engineering. Thus, the teaching of algebra in schools must be maximised. This study examined the effects of blended learning (BL) and problem-based learning (PBL) instructional strategies on senior secondary…

Van de Sande, Carla; Reiser, Mark – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2018
Summer break sets students in grades K-12 back by at least one month of instruction and has the strongest impact on mathematics retention. This study investigates whether there is evidence of the summer gap effect at the university level for engineering students enrolled in the introductory calculus course sequence, and possible demographic…

Reinholz, Daniel L. – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2017
Being part of a cohesive learning community supports retention and success in early mathematics courses. Yet, large, unwelcoming lectures stand in opposition to this goal, isolating students and pushing them away from STEM. This paper offers a comparative analysis of three efforts to build community amongst students, all situated within a single…
