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…

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…

Kim, Dong-Joong; Ferrini-Mundy, Joan; Sfard, Anna – International Journal of Educational Research, 2012
This study investigates the impact of language on students' learning of mathematics. A comparison has been made between English and Korean speaking university students' discourses on "infinity". In Korean, unlike in English, there is a disconnection between colloquial and mathematical discourses on infinity, in that the mathematical word for…

Gülkilika, Hilal; Ugurlu, Hasan Hüseyin; Yürük, Nejla – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2015
Students should learn mathematics with understanding. This is one of the ideas in the literature on mathematics education that everyone supports, from educational politicians to curriculum developers, from researchers to teachers, and from parents to students. In order to decide whether or not students understand mathematics we should first…

Xenofontos, Constantinos; Andrews, Paul – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2014
This paper presents a comparative analysis of prospective elementary teachers' mathematical problem solving-related beliefs in Cyprus and England. Twenty-four participants, twelve from a well-regarded university in each country, were interviewed qualitatively at the exit point of their undergraduate teacher education studies. Analyses revealed…

Yavuz, Gunes; Gunhan, Berna Canturk; Ersoy, Esen; Narli, Serkan – Journal of College Teaching & Learning, 2013
The aim of this study was to examine the self-efficacy beliefs about mathematical literacy among teachers of primary school mathematics and the relationship between the self-efficacy beliefs and attitudes towards mathematics. To that end, a descriptive research study was conducted with 550 prospective teachers studying primary school mathematics…

Otten, Samuel; Engledowl, Christopher; Spain, Vickie – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
Univocal discourse, characterized by its function of conveying information from one person to another, is common in mathematics classrooms but dialogic teaching aims at students coming to participate in dialogic discourse, that is, discourse functioning to generate new meaning within a community. Many mathematical practices are directed at the…

Darmuki, Agus; Andayani; Nurkamto, Joko; Saddhono, Kundharu – International Journal of Instruction, 2018
A cooperative approach-based Speaking Learning Model (SLM) has been developed to improve speaking skill of Higher Education students. This research aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of cooperative-based SLM viewed from the development of student's speaking ability and its effectiveness on speaking activity. This mixed method study combined…

Copur-Gencturk, Yasemin; Lubienski, Sarah T. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2013
This longitudinal study examines growth in teacher knowledge as measured by two popular assessments--Learning Mathematics for Teaching (LMT) and Diagnostic Teacher Assessments in Mathematics and Science (DTAMS). Using data collected from 24 teachers, we compare the extent to which each assessment captured teacher learning during a K-8 mathematics…

Goos, Merrilyn – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
This article discusses key issues surrounding the nature and development of professional knowledge for effective teaching of mathematics, especially at the secondary school level. In the education research community it is generally accepted that teachers need more than knowledge of the content they will teach; an additional construct, pedagogical…

Boyle, Robert W.; Farreras, Ingrid G. – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2015
This experiment tested the effect that calculator use had on 200 randomly assigned college students' mathematical performance. The purposes of the current experiment were twofold: to measure the level of mathematical preparation of current college students, and to test whether calculators improve mathematical performance in such students as it…

Supandi, Supandi; Waluya, S. B.; Rochmad, Rochmad; Suyitno, Hardi; Dewi, Kamelia – International Journal of Instruction, 2018
Mathematical representation is an important skill in mathematics learning that enables students to interpret and solve problems with ease. However, building confidence in such a skill can be difficult for some students, especially for those who lack self-motivation skills. Therefore, this study examines the effects of the think-talk-write strategy…

Chan, Kan Kan; Leung, Siu Wai – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2014
Dynamic geometry software (DGS) aims to enhance mathematics education. This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluated the quasi-experimental studies on the effectiveness of DGS-based instruction in improving students' mathematical achievement. Research articles published between 1990 and 2013 were identified from major databases according to a…
