Žilková, Katarína; Guncaga, Ján; Kopácová, Janka – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2015
During the last reform, Slovakia has reduced geometry in curriculum in primary mathematics education. Pre-school education schools devote more time to geometry in curriculum, but this is not mandatory for all the children. In the primary schools, teachers devote very little lessons time to this problem. These lessons are mainly focused on…

Berežný, Štefan – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2015
We can consider two basic views, when using mathematical software in the teaching of mathematical subjects. First: How to learn to use specific software for the specific tasks, e. g., software Statistica for the subjects of Applied statistics, probability and mathematical statistics, or financial mathematics. Second: How to learn to use the…

Páll-Szabó, Ágnes Orsolya – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2015
A picture is worth more than a thousand words--in mathematics too. Many students fail in learning mathematics because, in some cases, teachers do not offer the necessary visualization. Nowadays technology overcomes this problem: computer aided instruction is one of the most efficients methods in teaching mathematics. In this article we try to…

Libbrecht, Paul – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2015
Learning resources have been created to represent digital units of exchangeable materials that teachers and learners can pull from in order to support the learning processes. They resource themselves. Leveraging the web, one can often find these resources. But what characteristics do they need in order to be easily exchangeable? Although several…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2014
Admittedly, the notion of generalized integrals in one parameter has a fundamental role. En virtue that, in this paper, we discuss and characterize an approach for to promote the visualization of this scientific mathematical concept. We still indicate the possibilities of graphical interpretation of formal properties related to notion of…

Vorvilas, George – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2014
Multimedia educational applications convey meanings through several semiotic modes (e.g. text, image, sound, etc.). There is an urgent need for multimedia designers as well as for teachers to understand the meaning potential of these artifacts and discern the communicative purposes they serve. Towards this direction, a hermeneutic semiotic…
