Toh, Pee Choon; Leong, Yew Hoong; Toh, Tin Lam; Dindyal, Jaguthsing; Quek, Khiok Seng; Tay, Eng Guan; Ho, Foo Him – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Mathematical problem solving is the mainstay of the mathematics curriculum for Singapore schools. In the preparation of prospective mathematics teachers, the authors, who are mathematics teacher educators, deem it important that pre-service mathematics teachers experience non-routine problem solving and acquire an attitude that predisposes them to…

Papadopoulos, Ioannis; Iatridou, Maria – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2010
This paper examines the way two 10th graders cope with a non-standard generalisation problem that involves elementary concepts of number theory (more specifically linear Diophantine equations) in the geometrical context of a rectangle's area. Emphasis is given on how the students' past experience of problem solving (expressed through interplay…

Gauthier, N. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
Four different families of linear recurrences are derived for Catalan numbers. The derivations rest on John Riordan's 1973 generalization of Catalan numbers to a set of polynomials. Elementary differential and integral calculus techniques are used and the results should be of interest to teachers and students of introductory courses in calculus…

Bair, Sherry L.; Rich, Beverly S. – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2011
This article characterizes the development of a deep and connected body of mathematical knowledge categorized by Ball and Bass' (2003b) model of Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT), as Specialized Content Knowledge for Teaching (SCK) in algebraic reasoning and number sense. The research employed multiple cases across three years from two…

Aabrandt, Andreas; Hansen, Vagn Lundsgaard – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
The study of solutions to polynomial equations over finite fields has a long history in mathematics and is an interesting area of contemporary research. In recent years, the subject has found important applications in the modelling of problems from applied mathematical fields such as signal analysis, system theory, coding theory and cryptology. In…

Ernst, Dana C.; Hodge, Angie; Schultz, Andrew – PRIMUS, 2015
In the Spring of 2011, two of the authors of this paper taught number theory courses at their respective institutions. Twice during the semester, students in each class submitted proofs of two to three theorems to be peer reviewed by students in the other class. Each student wrote anonymous and formal referee reports of the submitted theorems,…

Bossé, Michael J.; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Young, Erica Slate; DeMarte, Ashley – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2019
Previous theoretical research has revealed conceptual similarities among a number of mathematical learning theories and theories regarding language acquisition. This intersection of ideas led to a novel framework defining four stages of mathematical learning: Receiving, Replicating, Negotiating Meaning, and Producing. Through qualitative research…

Teker, Gülsen Tasdelen; Güler, Nese – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2019
One of the important theories in education and psychology is Generalizability (G) Theory and various properties distinguish it from the other measurement theories. To better understand methodological trends of G theory, a thematic content analysis was conducted. This study analyzes the studies using generalizability theory in the field of…

Firozzaman, Firoz; Firoz, Fahim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Understanding the solution of a problem may require the reader to have background knowledge on the subject. For instance, finding an integer which, when divided by a nonzero integer leaves a remainder; but when divided by another nonzero integer may leave a different remainder. To find a smallest positive integer or a set of integers following the…

Dobbs, David E. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
It is proved that an integer n [greater than or equal] 2 is a prime (resp., composite) number if and only if there exists exactly one (resp., more than one) nth-degree monic polynomial f with coefficients in Z[subscript n], the ring of integers modulo n, such that each element of Z[subscript n] is a root of f. This classroom note could find use in…

Watkins, John J. – College Mathematics Journal, 2012
Latin squares form the basis for the recreational puzzles sudoku and KenKen. In this article we show how useful several ideas from number theory are in solving a KenKen puzzle. For example, the simple notion of triangular number is surprisingly effective. We also introduce a variation of KenKen that uses the Gaussian integers in order to…

Holbrook, Robert L., Jr.; Chappell, David – Management Teaching Review, 2019
Motivation is a fundamental component in management and organizational behavior courses. At the same time, it can be a complicated topic for teaching and learning due to the number of popular models and theories. The activity described here is a simple and fast way to illustrate the components of two of the most important and practical motivation…

Srinivasan, V. K. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Any quadruple of natural numbers {a, b, c, d} is called a "Pythagorean quadruple" if it satisfies the relationship "a[superscript 2] + b[superscript 2] + c[superscript 2]". This "Pythagorean quadruple" can always be identified with a rectangular box of dimensions "a greater than 0," "b greater than…
