Dahl, Bettina – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2018
Problem and Project-Based Learning (PBL) emphasise collaborate work on problems relevant to society and emphases the relation between theory and practice. PBL fits engineering students as preparation for their future professions but what about mathematics? Mathematics is not just applied mathematics, but it is also a body of abstract knowledge…

Pelkowski, Tracy; Herman, Everett; Trahan, Keith; Winters, Dana M.; Tananis, Cindy; Swartz, Mallary I.; Bunt, Nancy; Rodgick, Chris – Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, 2019
Studies show that early engagement with mathematics leads to increased math achievement later in life. Yet, early childhood teachers do not regard mathematics as critical to young learners' development and lack confidence with helping children learn mathematics. Early childhood teacher comfort and engagement with mathematics is a critical element…

Dove, Anthony; Dove, Emily – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
While studies have shown positive attributes related to flipped learning, especially in mathematics and statistics, there is limited understanding of how taking multiple flipped courses may impact students' learning of mathematics and their perceptions of mathematics. Specifically, this study examined how completing consecutive flipped mathematics…

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…

Reinholz, Daniel L.; Rasmussen, Chris; Nardi, Elena – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2020
This research commentary argues for more research that attends to the processes of organizational change in mathematics departments. It outlines both the ways that research on organizational change can benefit scholarship in mathematics departments, and how mathematics education researchers are needed to develop theories of change that are…

Morán-Soto, Gustavo; Benson, Lisa – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
This mixed methods research study focuses on two relevant factors in students' decisions to pursue and complete an engineering major: mathematics preparation and mathematics self-efficacy. This study describes the relationship of mathematics self-efficacy on engineering students' performance, behavior, and attitudes in their first college…

Klymchuk, Sergiy; Spooner, Kerri – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
The paper presents results of two case studies with undergraduate students majoring in applied mathematics and engineering. The first case study deals with students' preferences for and difficulties with application problems and pure mathematics questions in their courses. The students were majoring in applied mathematics and taking a second-year…

Powell, Sarah R.; Hebert, Michael A. – Elementary School Journal, 2016
Mathematics standards expect students to communicate about mathematics using oral and written methods, and some high-stakes assessments ask students to answer mathematics questions by writing. Assumptions about mathematics communication via writing include (a) students possess writing skill, (b) students can transfer this writing skill to…

Litster, Kristy; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2020
Digital math apps on touch-screen devices have become popular as effective tools to support mathematics learning. Many apps incorporate gaming elements such as points, stars, coins, or storylines to increase student interest and motivation. However, there is limited research regarding the balance of gaming and mathematics elements and how it…

Latterell, Carmen M.; Wilson, Janelle L. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Preservice elementary teachers hold a variety of beliefs about mathematics and mathematics learning, which influence their teaching. Previous research has shown that preservice elementary teachers believe that mathematics is doing arithmetic. However, it is unclear if preservice elementary teachers truly believe that mathematics is only…

Little, Mary E. – SRATE Journal, 2020
With the increasing demand for improved student achievement in mathematics, few studies have been conducted examining teacher efficacy when continuously supported through a collaborative professional learning community (PLC) structure. This study examined teacher efficacy within PLC activities in a middle school. Both the belief that mathematics…

Sonnert, Gerhard; Barnett, Melissa D.; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2020
Students' attitudes toward mathematics and the strength of their mathematics preparation typically go hand in hand such that their specific effects are difficult to disentangle. Employing the method of propensity weighting of a continuous variable, we built hierarchical linear models in which mathematics attitudes and preparation are uncorrelated.…

Basibüyük, Kani; Sahin, Ömer – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
In this study, we used the case study to determine the views of mathematics teachers towards history of mathematics. The participants consisted of 21 mathematics teachers who worked in different provinces in Turkey and were determined by purposeful sampling. A structured interview form was used as a data collection tool. The data obtained from…

Lambert, Rachel – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2020
While California Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CA CCSSM) call for rigorous mathematics for all students, students with disabilities have not been provided equal access to instruction that meets these standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework to develop strategic, expert learners within classroom…
