Boz-Yaman, Burçak; Yigit Koyunkaya, Melike – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
Learning and teaching function transformation has a significant place since it provides new opportunities for learners to use, reflect and discover knowledge related to the concept of function. This study's main goals related to the importance of learning function transformation are to examine pre-service mathematics teachers' (PMTs) mental…

Karaduman, Gülsah Batdal – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
This study aims to analyze the effects of conceptual change texts enriched with metaconceptual activities on the semantics of classroom teacher candidates. The sample of the study is made up of 60 3rd grade undergraduate students who study at Istanbul University Hasan Ali Yücel Faculty of Education. Pre-test post-test experimental modelling has…

Güven, Yildiz; Çolak, Feride Gök – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
In this study, it was aimed to identify the difficulties experienced by early childhood education teachers in planning, implementation and evaluation processes of in-class and out-of-class mathematics activities and parent involvement in such activities. The answers of the teachers to the questions on the interview form were recorded via a voice…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Barros, Francisco Evamar – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
The study and interest of figurate numbers can be observed even in ancient Greece. On the other hand, it becomes very important the historical understanding about an evolutionary process and the particular generalization of such 2D, 3D and m-D figurate numbers and they remain the interest of current scientific investigations. On the other hand, in…

Stettner, Eleonóra; Nienhaus, Rózsa – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
In this article we are analyzing which spherical symmetry groups can be found and which ones cannot among the eggs with wax-resist patterns most frequently used in the Carpathian Basin. We are also trying to answer the question why exactly these symmetry decorations can be found. Before that, we are providing a review on the history of decorating…

Tchonang Youkap, Patrick; Njomgang Ngansop, Judith; Tieudjo, Daniel; Nchia Ntam, Lawrence – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
In this article, we wish to explore the influence of the figure of the drawing on the argumentation of students who are involved in a proof task. It is about analysing the knowledge that students associate with parallelograms and the interactions between students and drawing. Our research is based on both Toulmin's model and Vinner's concept image…

Ada, Tuba; Kurtulus, Aytaç – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
Circle, ellipse, parabola, hyperbolic curves are defined as conic sections from the intersection of a coni with a plane at different angles. These curves can be found in different positions depending on the different angles. In this case, rotation transformation can be applied to the curves so that their major axes are brought to the horizontal…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Dias, Marlene Alves – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
In the training of mathematics teachers in Brazil we can not disregard the historical and epistemological component aiming the transmission of mathematics through a real understanding of the nature of classic concepts and foundamental definitions to Mathematics, whether in the school context or in the academic context. In this sense, the present…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
In Brazil we have identified a predilection of the authors of Mathematical History books for the discussion of the fundamentals of Differential and Integral Calculus. On the other hand, when we consider the teaching of Mathematics in the school context, it is essential to know the teaching of the historical and dynamic evolution of the concepts,…

Neuper, Walther A. – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2017
This is a position paper in the field of Engineering Education, which is at the very beginning in Europe. It relates challenges in the new field to the emerging technology of (Computer) Theorem Proving (TP). Experience shows, that "teaching" abstract models, for instance the wave equation in mechanical engineering and in electrical…

Güler, Hatice Kübra; Arslan, Çigdem – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2017
Understanding how students learn is important for both researchers and teachers. In terms of mathematics, constructing a new mathematical structure depends on conceptual understanding and connection with previous construct and they needs to be consolidated. A construct can be consolidated when the construct is recognized and used in the further…

Marchis, Iuliana – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2017
Spatial abilities are used in many aspects of everyday life, thus developing these abilities should be one of the most important goal of Mathematics Education. These abilities should be developed starting with early school years, thus pre-school and primary school teachers have an important role in setting the foundation of these abilities. A…

Tasdan, Berna Tataroglu; Koyunkaya, Melike Yigit – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2017
Teaching of mathematics could be improved with teachers who have a strong mathematical knowledge and have an ability to reflect this knowledge on their teaching. Therefore, it is important to develop mathematics teachers' theoretical and pedagogical knowledge. This study was designed to examine pre-service secondary mathematics teachers' (PSMT)…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2016
Admittedly, the study of Complex Analysis (CA) requires of the student considerable mental effort characterized by the mobilization of a related thought to the complex mathematical concepts. Thus, with the aid of the dynamic system Geogebra, we discuss in this paper a particular concept in CA. In fact, the notion of winding number v[f(gamma),P] =…

Magdas, Ioana – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2015
The analogical reasoning isn't used only in mathematics but also in everyday life. In this article we approach the analogical reasoning in Geometry Education. The novelty of this article is a classification of geometrical analogies by reasoning type and their exemplification. Our classification includes: analogies for understanding and setting a…
