Gula, Taras; Hoessler, Carolyn; Maciejewski, Wes – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Many students enter the Canadian college system with insufficient mathematical ability and leave the system with little improvement. Those students who enter with poor mathematics ability typically take a developmental mathematics course as their first and possibly only mathematics course. The educational experiences that comprise a developmental…

Munns, Andrew – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2017
Professional bodies expect engineers to show competence in both mathematics and engineering topics such as mechanics, using their abilities in both of these to solve problems. Yet within engineering programmes there is a phenomenon known as "The Mathematics Problem", with students not demonstrating understanding of the subject. This…

Murphy, Julia; Chang, Jen-Mei; Suaray, Kagba – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Flipped learning is gaining traction in K-12 for enhancing students' problem-solving skills at an early age; however, there is relatively little large-scale research showing its effectiveness in promoting better learning outcomes in higher education, especially in mathematics classes. In this study, we examined the data compiled from both…

Arabeyyat, Talal Hashem – ProQuest LLC, 2017
There is no doubt that teachers' knowledge and beliefs play a significant role in shaping how students learn mathematics. Nevertheless, research regarding the knowledge and beliefs of preservice teachers, including the cultural dimension, is very limited (Xenofontos & Andrews, 2012). The purpose of this study is to investigate the similarities…
