Muir, Tracey; Callingham, Rosemary; Beswick, Kim – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2016
This article presents a case study of one particular lesson in which a teacher uses the features of an interactive whiteboard (IWB) to teach mental computation strategies to a Grade 1 class. The framework of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) is used to evaluate the teacher's use of the IWB to teach mathematical concepts to young…

McCune, Lori – PRIMUS, 2019
In the age of the internet, it is increasingly difficult to write homework assignments in a way that encourages students to struggle with a problem on their own without seeking answers from other sources. This is especially true in lower-level courses, where students often start with the attitude of "I can't do this." In this article, I…

Omoruan, B. E.; Osadebe, P. U. – International Journal of Education and Practice, 2020
Since it has been well established that students? learning and achievements depend hugely on teachers? ability and competency, this study was aimed at investigating the issues of computer literacy and mathematics competency in human resource development among pre-service teachers. Two test instruments, the mathematics competency test (MCT) and the…

Zubainur, Cut Morina; Johar, Rahmah; Hayati, Rahmi; Ikhsan, M. – Journal of Education and Learning (EduLearn), 2020
The application of Realistic mathematics education (RME) in schools has not satisfied. The efforts of educators to help teachers implement RME are an ongoing process, including by providing examples of learning process through the video lessons. This study aims to investigate teacher understanding of the characteristics of RME through watching…

Omotayo, Stephen Akinyemi; Adeleke, Joshua Oluwatoyin – Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, 2017
The numerous and varied applications of mathematics to all human endeavours justifies placing emphasis on the teaching and learning of the subject. This study established the effectiveness of the 5E instructional model (Bybee, Taylor, Gardner, Scotter, Powell, Westbrook, & Landes, 2006) for enhancing learning outcomes in mathematics. The study…

Lakhan, Reshmi; Laxman, Kumar – Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
This paper looks at benefits of technology inclusion in global indigenous students' learning. Critical meta-analysis was undertaken of fifteen articles. It was found that Indigenous students learn better through a Culture inclusive curriculum. Technology can be an effective tool in creating a collaborative environment, where students can share…

Cogan, Leland S.; Schmidt, William H.; Guo, Siwen – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2019
Many studies have found a strong relationship between the mathematics students study in school and their performance on an academic or school mathematics assessment but not on an assessment of mathematics literacy (ML). With many countries, like the USA, placing emphasis on finishing secondary education being mathematically literate and prepared…

Frantzeskaki, Konstantina; Kafoussi, Sonia; Fessakis, Georgios – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2020
In recent years, the learning and teaching of combinatorics presents particular educational research interest from the primary up to higher education levels. The combinatorial problems constitute a valuable opportunity for mathematical exploration, as combinatorics is a branch of mathematics with many applications, providing a complex network of…

Smith, Cathy; Morgan, Candia – Curriculum Journal, 2016
A common claim about mathematics education is that it should equip students to use mathematics in the "real world". In this paper, we examine how relationships between mathematics education and the real world are materialised in the curriculum across a sample of eleven jurisdictions. In particular, we address the orientation of the…

Wolbert, William – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
The query "When are we ever going to use this?" is easily answered when discussing the slope of a line. The pitch of a roof, the grade of a road, and stair stringers are three applications of slope that are used extensively. The concept of slope, which is introduced fairly early in the mathematics curriculum has hands-on applications…

Hallman-Thrasher, Allyson; Connor, Jeff – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2014
This qualitative study examines what mathematics teacher candidates with STEM backgrounds think about their future work as mathematics teachers. The content preparation for a STEM career is not identical with that taken by traditional teacher candidates and may not develop the pedagogical content knowledge necessary for candidates to connect their…

Leder, Gilah C.; Forgasz, Helen J.; Kalkhoven, Natalie; Geiger, Vince – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
Data from a pilot study concerned with pre-service teachers' perceptions of the numeracy demands on Australian teachers are reported. The sample comprised 211 students enrolled in pre-service teacher education courses at a large Australian university. While most recognised the importance of mathematics and its applications in everyday life, less…

Jordán, Cristina; Magreñán, Ángel Alberto; Orcos, Lara – Education Sciences, 2019
The changes in our society in recent years and the consequent idiosyncrasy of young people demand new teaching methodologies. The methodology known as flip teaching, in which pupils study the subject before the class experience, using the material given by the teacher, makes it possible to turn the classroom into a place to solve different…

Brelias, Anastasia – ProQuest LLC, 2009
The purpose of this study was to examine the use of socially relevant mathematics applications in high school mathematics classrooms and students' views of mathematics in light of their experiences with these applications. Also, the study sought to determine whether inquiries afforded by these applications incorporated features that promoted…
