Mulligan, Joanne; Woolcott, Geoffrey; Mitchelmore, Michael; Davis, Brent – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
Spatial reasoning, an emerging transdisciplinary area of interest to mathematics education research, is proving integral to all human learning. It is particularly critical to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. This project will create an innovative knowledge framework based on spatial reasoning that identifies new…

Smith, Ryan; Shin, Dongjo; Kim, Somin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
In this paper, we propose the mathematical cognitive technology noticing framework for examining how mathematics teachers evaluate, select, and modify mathematical cognitive technology to use in their classrooms. Our framework is based on studies of professional and curricular noticing and data collected in a study that explored how secondary…

Nakakoji, Yoshitaka; Wilson, Rachel – Education Sciences, 2018
Transfer of mathematical learning to science is seen as critical to the development of education and industrial societies, yet it is rarely interrogated in applied research. We present here research looking for evidence of transfer from university mathematics learning in semester one to second semester sciences/engineering courses (n = 1125). A…

Radakovic, Nenad; Jagger, Susan; Jao, Limin – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2018
In this article, we explore the reading and writing of mathematical poetry from our experiences as mathematics teacher educators. First, we outline how our own engagement with mathematical poetry encouraged us to incorporate it into our teaching of pre-service teachers. We describe how our initial disappointment with the mathematical content of…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
The work that mathematics teachers do is frequently mathematical in nature and different from other professions. Understanding and describing common ways that teachers draw upon their content knowledge in the practice of teaching is important. Building on the descriptions by McCrory et al. ("Journal for Research in Mathematics Education"…

Maciejewski, Wes; Barton, Bill – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2016
Originating from interviews with mathematics colleagues, written accounts of mathematicians engaging with mathematics, and Wes's reflections on his own mathematical work, we describe a process that we call mathematical foresight: the imagining of a resolution to a mathematical situation and a path to that resolution. In a sense, mathematical…

Astawa, I. Wayan Puja; Budayasa, I. Ketut; Juniati, Dwi – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
This research aims to describe the process of student cognition in constructing mathematical conjecture. Many researchers have studied this process but without giving a detailed explanation of how students understand the information to construct a mathematical conjecture. The researchers focus their analysis on how to construct and prove the…
