Reys, Robert – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
There are many paths to becoming an active researcher in mathematics education. This article describes one ideal path. It begins with identifying a useful educational background prior to entering a doctoral program. Then it offers some suggestions for selecting an institution to pursue a doctoral program. The article outlines some academic…

Haser, Çigdem – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
The key experiences in becoming an independent mathematics education researcher were investigated through interviews with eight doctoral students with academic job intentions at a Turkish university. Findings showed that doctoral students conceptualized a mathematics education researcher with several types of knowledge, skills, and attitudes,…

Koichu, Boris; Pinto, Alon – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This theoretical article explores an issue of developing education research competencies in mathematics teachers through their involvement in mathematics education research. We first argue that the development of education research competencies is beneficial for the teachers' professional growth. We then identify opportunities for mathematics…

Andrà, Chiara; Brunetto, Domenico – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
We investigate the process of becoming an expert in mathematics education through the narratives of Mario, a PhD student in mathematics education, and those of Anna, his young mentor. The narratives examine the initial interactions with mathematics education (specifically, the writing of a conference paper) and explore the motives, interests, and…

Liljedahl, Peter – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
The preparation of graduate students to become independent researchers is a central goal of all doctoral programs. In this paper, I present the results of a study looking at how this move to independence is viewed by graduate students enrolled in a mathematics education master's or PhD program. Results indicate that graduate students have very…

Aikenhead, Glen S. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Culturally responsive or place-based school mathematics that focuses on Indigenous students has an established presence in the research literature. This culture-based innovation represents a historical shift from conventional approaches to mathematics education. Moreover, it has demonstratively advanced the academic achievement for both Indigenous…

Hyslop-Margison, Emery; Rogers, Matthew; Oladi, Soudeh – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Despite widespread calls for evidence-based research in education, this strategy has heretofore generated a surprisingly small return on the related financial investment. Some scholars have suggested that the situation follows from a mismatch between education as an assumed field of study and applied empirical research methods. This article's…

Towers, Jo; Hall, Jennifer; Rapke, Tina; Martin, Lyndon C.; Andrews, Heather – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
In this article, we review published literature that draws on autobiographical accounts of students' experiences learning mathematics. We summarize the main findings of the target literature and present recommendations for further research that will extend this field. Our review indicates that autobiographical and narrative methodological…

Shanahan, Marie-Claire; Carol-Ann Burke, Lydia E.; Francis, Krista – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
The term "STEM," used to describe science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, has come to prominence in Canada over the last decade, raising questions about its meaning. Here we examine its history in the United States and the sociopolitical commitments that have, in parallel, guided science education in Canada. The divergent…

LópezLeiva, Carlos; Roberts-Harris, Deborah; von Toll, Elizabeth – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
Through a collaborative effort between a sixth-grade teacher and two university faculty, we designed an integrated unit to learn about motion and we learned that an integrated teaching and learning experience about motion is MESSY (i.e., it includes movement, engagement, social interactions, spontaneity, yikes, and yippees!). We engaged in a…

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…

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…

Mujtaba, Tamjid; Reiss, Michael J. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article explores how students' aspirations to study mathematics or physics in post-16 education are associated with their perceptions of their education, their motivations, and the support they feel they received. The analysis is based on the responses of around 10,000 students in England in Year 8 (age 12-13) and then in Year 10 (age 14-15).…

Rodney, Sheree; Rouleau, Annette; Sinclair, Nathalie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
Public perception about mathematics education is developed and sustained by the Canadian news media. Our goal is to understand better the nature of this public discourse by identifying what is being communicated and how it is presented. We examine a data corpus of 71 online national newspaper articles (published between 2013 and 2015, a period…

Chorney, Sean; Ng, Oi-Lam; Pimm, David – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
In this companion piece to the article "A Tale of Two Metaphors: Storylines About Mathematics Education in Canadian National Media" (this issue), we further explore constructed meanings through the use of positioning theory. In our examination of 71 articles in the two Canadian national newspapers ("The Globe and Mail" and…
