Sheffield, Linda Jensen – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
A number of myths about mathematically gifted students, mathematics itself, and programs designed to serve these students tend to inhibit educators, parents and students themselves from developing students' mathematical creativity, expertise and enjoyment. This paper discusses some of the myths that can discourage students' mathematical…

Carnie, Steven; Morphett, Anthony – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Reports such as Bio2010 emphasize the importance of integrating mathematical modelling skills into undergraduate biology and life science programmes, to ensure students have the skills and knowledge needed for biological research in the twenty-first century. One way to do this is by developing a dedicated mathematics subject to teach modelling and…

Tabov, Jordan; Gortcheva, Iordanka – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2016
Our research includes undergraduate students who major in primary school education. Their academic background is prevailingly in the humanities. This poses specific demands on their mathematics instruction at university. To attract them to their mathematics course and raise its effectiveness, we use a series of activities. Writing assignments…

Ayllón, María F.; Gómez, Isabel A.; Ballesta-Claver, Julio – Journal of Educational Psychology - Propósitos y Representaciones, 2016
This work shows the relationship between the development of mathematical thinking and creativity with mathematical problem posing and solving. Creativity and mathematics are disciplines that do not usually appear together. Both concepts constitute complex processes sharing elements, such as fluency (number of ideas), flexibility (range of ideas),…

Guerra, Paula; Lim, Woong – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2014
In this article, the authors present three adolescent Latinas' perceptions of ideal mathematical competencies, their perception of their individual "abilities" in mathematics, and their work on a mathematics problem-solving task. Results indicate that these Latinas recognize flexible mathematics as the ideal mathematical competency in…

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…

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…
