Kaufmann, Odd Tore; Stenseth, Børre – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
This article attempts to identify the kind of arguments that lower secondary school-level pupils use when they apply programming to solve a mathematical problem. By analyzing the data from one group of three pupils working together with Processing (Processing is a Java based tool primarily to learn programme visual effects supported and…

Kang, Rui; Johnson, Sheri; Lambert, Emily; Davidson, Candi – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
Spirograph® is a classic drawing toy that has intriguing connections with mathematics. Inspired by earlier articles in "Mathematics Teacher" on the classic drawing toy that targeted higher grade levels, the authors adopt and create activities that make Spirograph mathematics accessible to middle-grade learners.

Dunbar, Kyle M.; Rich, Kathryn M. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
The aim of this article is to inspire more teachers to explore the use of codable robots for teaching mathematics. The authors begin by discussing four benefits experienced by incorporating robots into middle school mathematics classes: (1) reasonable time frames; (2) authentic purposes for mathematics; (3) visual and nonevaluative feedback; and…

Herceg, Ðorde; Herceg, Dejana – Informatics in Education, 2020
Connecting theory and practice in teaching is sometimes difficult, as it requires expensive or delicate equipment, thus limiting the teacher to giving demonstrations in which students are passive participants. Numerical mathematics, as an applied discipline, should be taught on real world examples. By using inexpensive Arduino hardware, we can…

Barnes, Erica M.; Stephens, S. Joy – Curriculum Journal, 2019
This study examines four of the most commonly-used core mathematics curricula in the USA for evidence of support for research-based instructional strategies for mathematics vocabulary in first and second grade. Content analyses of the teachers' editions of two units for each grade level were analyzed per curriculum (n = 16). Statistically…

Madden, Sean; Hume, Olli; Booton, Jacqueline – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Mathematics and technology serve the health sciences as demonstrated in this article, cowritten by one of our calculus students. Creating a lesson based on dosing an antibiotic allows teachers and students to see the immediate value of high school calculus and technology.

Ghousseini, Hala; Lord, Sarah; Cardon, Aimee – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
This article elaborates three important practices that a kindergarten teacher used to support students' mathematics discourse: (1) establishing expectations that support mathematical discourse; (2) eliciting student thinking; and (3) narrating student thinking. The authors use vignettes from a kindergarten classroom to elaborate the nature of…

Bonner, Emily P. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Current gaps in achievement among students from diverse backgrounds and their culturally dominant counterparts imply that theoretical ideas, such as culturally responsive teaching (CRT), that focus on increasing the achievement of diverse populations are sound yet difficult to translate into everyday practice. CRT is intricate and complex and…

Leron, Uri; Ejersbo, Lisser Rye – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
Research in psychology and in mathematics education has documented the ubiquity of "intuition traps" -- tasks that elicit non-normative responses from most people. Researchers in cognitive psychology often view these responses negatively, as a sign of irrational behaviour. Others, notably mathematics educators, view them as necessary…

O'Meara, Niamh; Prendergast, Mark – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2019
The quantum of instruction time allocated to curriculum subjects such as mathematics facilitates greater exposure to knowledge and skill development, leading to higher levels of achievement. There are a number of manifestations of time to consider when investigating the quantum of time in mathematics education. The OECD have investigated the time…

McNabb, Brett – BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, 2021
There are many people whose actions and behaviours can influence the mindset and beliefs that students have toward learning math. In addition to other factors such as social media, which are beyond the scope of this article, parents, teachers, and peers all have different influences on children's mindsets, and often those people do not recognize…

Olsen, Joe; Lew, Kristen; Weber, Keith – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2020
The metaphors that students form and encounter have been shown to exert a powerful influence on how they think about mathematics. In this paper, we explore the linguistic metaphors about learning and doing mathematics that were prevalent in 11 advanced mathematics lectures. We present four metaphor clusters that were common in the corpus that we…

Brewster, Barbara Jane Melissa; Miller, Tess – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
In our technologically advanced society proficiency in mathematics is paramount to success in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) employment sector. Mathematics anxiety negatively affects an individual's physiological and cognitive functioning, which results in the individual obtaining lower achievement in mathematics. The…

Skovsmose, Ole – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2020
The article identifies three narratives about mathematics education. The first claims that mathematics is a wonderful subject, which provides a true foundation for human knowledge and progress. The second presents mathematics as a suspicious subject, which serves functions of oppression. The third highlights that mathematics has critical…

Heavner, Shayla; Devers, Christopher – International Journal on E-Learning, 2020
Writing in mathematics is an essential skill for communication and many technical careers. Research suggests that writing in mathematics often leads to increased understanding and more effective communication. However, writing in mathematics is still underutilized as a method of instruction. Further, many college students practice example-based…
