Hall, Jennifer; Suurtamm, Christine – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In Canada, women are a minority in university mathematics programmes, and this situation has not improved in the past several years. To examine this situation, research was conducted to investigate the experiences of women who might be considered "success stories" in mathematics--those who persevered beyond their initial years of…

Zazkis, Rina; Marmur, Ofer – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In this paper, we highlight a further use of scripting tasks in the work of researchers-teacher-educators, which we present in two parts. In Part 1, we study prospective secondary school mathematics teachers' responses to a scripting task on the topic of functions. The generated examples for a function that satisfies certain constraints provide a…

Oliveira, Alandeon W.; Johnston, Erin; Brown, Adam Oliver – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Striving to better understand exemplification, this study examines the types of animal behavior references (anthropomorphic/non-anthropomorphic) and taxonomic groups featured in the examples given by an undergraduate biology instructor during a semester-long course. It is reported that instruction was dominated by anthropomorphic examples of…

Krug, Don; Shaw, Ashley – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article examines science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education as represented in North American educational contexts. In this article we will argue that the dominant view of STEM education as currently circulated and practiced in the United States and Canada is not much more than an acronym of discrete disciplinary areas. We…

Smith, Ryan C.; Kim, Somin; McIntyre, Leighton – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
As technology become more ubiquitous in the classroom, teachers need to overcome two types of barriers to use it effectively: access to resources (including the development of knowledge) and the development of appropriate beliefs. To assist teachers in overcoming these barriers, we must understand the relationships that exist among them. We…

Zazkis, Dov – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article argues for a shift in how researchers discuss and examine students' uses and understandings of multiple representations within a calculus context. An extension of Zazkis, Dubinsky, and Dautermann's (1996) visualization/analysis framework to include contextual reasoning is proposed. Several examples that detail transitions between…

Milner-Bolotin, Marina – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article discusses how modern technology, such as electronic response systems, PeerWise system, data collection and analysis tools, computer simulations, and modeling software can be used in physics methods courses to promote teacher-candidates' professional competencies and their positive attitudes about mathematics and science education. We…

Kajander, Ann; Holm, Jennifer – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This study investigated the effect of a departmental focus on enhanced mathematics knowledge for teaching on overall performance in upper elementary mathematics methods courses. The study examined the effect of performance on a new course in mathematics for teaching on performance at the methods course level. In addition, the effect of performance…

Cetin, Ibrahim – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The purpose of this study is to explore students' understanding of loops and nested loops concepts. Sixty-three mechanical engineering students attending an introductory programming course participated in the study. APOS (Action, Process, Object, Schema) is a constructivist theory developed originally for mathematics education. This study is the…

Chernoff, Egan J.; Mamolo, Ami – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The objective of this article is to contribute to research on teachers' probabilistic knowledge and reasoning. To meet this objective, prospective mathematics teachers were presented coin flip sequences and were asked to determine and explain which of the sequences was least likely to occur. This research suggests that certain individuals, when…

Cook, John Paul; Fukawa-Connelly, Tim – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This article reports on an exploratory study designed to investigate the reasoning behind algebraists' selection of examples. Variation theory provided a lens to analyze their collections of examples. Our findings include the classes of examples of groups and rings that algebraists believe to be most pedagogically useful. Chief among their…

Mujtaba, Tamjid; Reiss, Michael J. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The third of the eight Millennium Development Goals is to promote gender equality and empower women. This article discusses the factors that are associated with 31 female higher education students' choices and aspirations to pursue education and careers in mathematics and science-related fields. The analysis is based on semistructured interviews.…

Wiest, John – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This article reports on a study investigating how postsecondary students interact with mathematical proofs with a focus on how they go about unpacking a "received proof," how they make meaning from what they are given, and whether they believe that mathematical meaning can be drawn from such proofs. Case studies were conducted with seven…

Oliveira, Alandeom W.; Meskill, Carla; Judson, Darlene; Gregory, Karen; Rogers, Patterson; Imperial, Christopher J.; Casler-Failing, Shelli – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This study explores the "language repair strategies" (aimed at repairing communication problems) of two bilingual speakers during mathematics word problem tutoring sessions. Bilingual repair was shown to gradually shift from a linguistic to an epistemic focus during problem solving (i.e., communication became more conceptually focused…

Van Dyke, Frances; Malloy, Elizabeth J.; Stallings, Virginia – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
This article discusses an activity designed to encourage writing to learn in mathematics. There were three stages of data collection. An assessment, requiring basic algebra only, was completed by 118 undergraduates from statistics and calculus courses. Students were given summaries of all participant responses, along with the correct answers.…
