Yorulmaz, Alper; Altintas, Sedat; Sidekli, Sabri – European Journal of Educational Research, 2017
The state of mathematical thinking is considered to have an effect on the formation of anxiety regarding teaching mathematics. It is hypothesized that with the formation of mathematical thinking, the anxiety in teachers regarding teaching mathematics will be reduced. Since mathematical thinking is a skill acquired starting from the early years of…

Zulfikar, Teuku – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2013
Many Indonesian scholars (Azra, 2002; Darmaningtyas, 2004; Yunus, 2004), have attempted to bring progressive education to their country. They believe that progressive practices such as critical thinking, critical dialogue and child-centered instruction will help students learn better. However, this implementation is resisted because of cultural…

Bergsten, Christer; Engelbrecht, Johann; Kågesten, Owe – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
One challenge for an optimal design of the mathematical components in engineering education curricula is to understand how the procedural and conceptual dimensions of mathematical work can be matched with different demands and contexts from the education and practice of engineers. The focus in this paper is on how engineering students respond to…

Ransome, Myrna; Mohamed, Musa El Sharief; Bridgemohan, Puran – World Journal of Education, 2016
The colonial fallacy that only a few persons are endowed with the capabilities to conceptualize mathematics, coupled with the belief that society equates mathematical ability with intellectual superiority, have contributed to low levels of mathematical self-concept and achievement among some students of mathematics. Some of these students are…
