Amador, Julie M.; Estapa, Anne; Kosko, Karl; Weston, Tracy – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2021
In recent years, teacher professional noticing has become more prevalent internationally. One common definition to distinguish professional noticing from everyday noticing includes the three interrelated skills of attending, interpreting and deciding to respond. We used qualitative analysis to explore prospective teachers' approximations of…

Norqvist, Mathias – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Studies in mathematics education often point to the necessity for students to engage in more cognitively demanding activities than just solving tasks by applying given solution methods. Previous studies have shown that students that engage in creative mathematically founded reasoning to construct a solution method, perform significantly better in…

Abdu, Rotem; Schwarz, Baruch – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Conditions under which group work leads to learning have been studied in collaborative settings. Little is known, however, about whether and how the interplay between collaboration and cooperation impinges on group learning. In this paper, we study this interplay in the context of mathematical problem-solving. We focus on how training students to…

Kanhai, Abhishek; Singh, Bhoodev – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
There are many things which can be made more useful and interesting through the application of creativity. Self-concept in mathematics and some school environmental factors such as resource adequacy, teachers' support to the students, teachers' classroom control, creative stimulation by the teachers, etc. were selected in the study. The sample of…
