ten Hoor, Marten J. – School Science Review, 2020
The mathematical method of linear equations involving the coefficients of the equation of a chemical reaction can be used to balance the equation of nearly every chemical reaction. For its application, only the rules of simple algebra need be known. Hence, the method could even be used by students of an elementary chemistry course.

Gainsburg, Julie – Journal of Engineering Education, 2015
Background: This study was motivated by the ubiquity and apparent usefulness of general epistemological development schemes, notably that of William J. Perry, Jr., in engineering education, but also by limitations that derive from their generality. Purpose/Hypothesis: Empirical data were used to articulate engineering students' epistemological…

Akgün, Levent – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2015
The aim of this study is to identify prospective secondary mathematics teachers' opinions about the mathematical modeling method and the applicability of this method in high schools. The case study design, which is among the qualitative research methods, was used in the study. The study was conducted with six prospective secondary mathematics…

Bartley-Buntz, Julie; Kronborg, Leonie – Australasian Journal of Gifted Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine mathematically able female adolescents' perceptions of their accelerated mathematics programs. To this end, eight female adolescents were asked to reflect retrospectively in response to a self-administered questionnaire on their perceptions and experiences of a secondary accelerated mathematics program and…

Jiang, Yong – Higher Education Studies, 2017
Traditional mathematical methods built around exactitude have limitations when applied to the processing of educational information, due to their uncertainty and imperfection. Alternative mathematical methods, such as grey system theory, have been widely applied in processing incomplete information systems and have proven effective in a number of…

Albarracín, Lluís – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2021
This study presents a teaching experiment in which second-grade primary school students compared a city and a town according to population estimates. The activities were presented to them as Fermi problems and required an analysis of the reality to identify sub-problems that students could deal with. The students' products were analyzed from the…

Leigh-Lancaster, David; Les, Magdalena; Evans, Michael – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2010
2009 was the final year of parallel implementation for Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 and Mathematical Methods (CAS) Units 3 and 4. From 2006-2009 there was a common technology-free short answer examination that covered the same function, algebra, calculus and probability content for both studies with corresponding expectations for key…

Conner, Kimberly A. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
By having students practice constructing diagrams for geometric theorems, teachers can develop students' understanding of mathematical claims, vocabulary, and notation methods. This practice can also strengthen students' ability to interpret mathematical diagrams and recognize their limitations.

Pearl, Judea – Sociological Methods & Research, 2015
This article summarizes a conceptual framework and simple mathematical methods of estimating the probability that one event was a necessary cause of another, as interpreted by lawmakers. We show that the fusion of observational and experimental data can yield informative bounds that, under certain circumstances, meet legal criteria of causation.…

Bond, Timothy – Australian Mathematics Education Journal, 2019
The simple and compound interest formulas in isolation have limited usefulness for financial planning--until the concept of a regular payment is introduced. This article presents and discusses a simple investigation given to an advanced Year 10 mathematics class, with most students looking to study Mathematical Methods in Years 11 and 12. This…

Jerše, Gregor; Lokar, Matija – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
The emphasis in several courses at technical faculties is on using a computer to perform numerical methods. Instead of focusing on mathematical rigorousness such courses usually concentrate on demonstrating the practical usage of numerical mathematical methods to the students. The practical usage of numerical methods is best learned by exposing…

Hertel, Joshua – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2016
In this article I discuss an investigation of handwritten mathematics manuscripts known as navigation cyphering books. These manuscripts, which were prepared during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, are evidence of an educational tradition that was the primary means by which students in North America learned mathematics between 1607 and…

Zoanetti, Nathan; Les, Magdalena; Leigh-Lancaster, David – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
From 2011-2013 the VCAA conducted a trial aligning the use of computers in curriculum, pedagogy and assessment culminating in a group of 62 volunteer students sitting their end of Year 12 technology-active Mathematical Methods (CAS) Examination 2 as a computer-based examination. This paper reports on statistical modelling undertaken to compare the…

Mills, Terrence – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2018
The sudden perception of a connection between ideas is exhilarating. We might call these moments 'Aha!' moments. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how several different ideas can come together in Year 12 mathematics. The subject Further Mathematics in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is the Victorian adaptation of General…

Issa, Ndungo; Majuma, Biira – Online Submission, 2019
The study aimed at describing university students' ability in constructing mathematical proofs using logical arguments and constructing an effective teaching-learning map. The study adopted a correlational research design. An open-ended mathematics assessment involving questions on mathematical logic and construction of mathematical proofs was…
