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…

Ng, Oi-Lam; Sinclair, Nathalie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
In this article, we report on two lessons aimed at introducing junior high school students to the idea of shearing in a touchscreen dynamic geometry environment. By using shearing, we hoped to shift students' attention away from a formula-driven, computational conception of area toward a more geometric one. We found that the students were able to…

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…

Otoide, Lorraine; Alsop, Steve – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The work of Jacques Rancière has become rather popular of late, with a series of high-profile advocates. In this article, we reflect on an elementary classroom and an experiment with pedagogy inspired by Rancière's (1991) text, The "Ignorant Schoolmaster." The authors discuss the text, outline a 20-lesson response that emerged from the…

Sperling, Erin; Bencze, J. Lawrence – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This article presents a study of youth participating in a program that engages in a form of ecojustice education, addressing social inequities, along with science-linked concepts, through a localized and culturally oriented food-based curriculum. A community-based food justice organization provides a rich space for encountering and examining the…

Radakovic, Nenad – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
Research in mathematics education stresses the importance of content knowledge in solving authentic tasks in statistics and in risk-based decision making. Existing research supports the claim that students rely on content knowledge and context expertise to make sense of data. In this article, however, I present evidence that the relationship…

Bazzul, Jesse – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
This theoretical article draws from the political thought of Jacques Rancière to trouble some taken-for-granted conceptions of citizenship education. Rancière's notion of politics and dissensus (as opposed to consensus) can lay the groundwork for a version of citizenship that challenges what is deemed sensible, visible, who is counted in…

FitzPatrick, Beverly; Schulz, Henry – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The curriculum for two science units in each of Grades 6 and 7 was analyzed to determine the cognitive levels of the outcomes and their cognitive alignment with the assessments that corresponded with these outcomes. This was done for British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Atlantic Canada. The outcomes and assessments included a variety of higher…

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.…

Savard, Annie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
This article presents a study done in an elementary mathematics methods course that focused on the transition of novice teachers' epistemological stances: former elementary student, university student, and teacher stances. In order to help them develop the teacher stance, we designed a three-phase activity, where two phases took place inside…

Georgiou, Helen; Maton, Karl; Sharma, Manjula – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
Science education research has built a strong body of work on students' understandings but largely overlooked the nature of science knowledge itself. Legitimation Code Theory (LCT), a rapidly growing approach to education, offers a way of analyzing the organizing principles of knowledge practices and their effects on science education. This…

Foster, Colin – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
The frequent misinterpretation of the nature of confidence intervals by students has been well documented. This article examines the problem as an aspect of the learning of mathematical definitions and considers the tension between parroting mathematically rigorous, but essentially uninternalized, statements on the one hand and expressing…

Towers, Jo; Martin, Lyndon C. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
In this article we explore the mechanisms through which one group of preservice teachers engage in "Collective Property Noticing"--a phenomenon in which group members integrate individual contributions such that the group, as a unit, notices mathematical properties of their collective image. Drawing on improvisational theory to help to…

Rapke, Tina Kathleen – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
I have developed an adaptation of the emerging duoethnography methodology that allows me to draw on my processes of creating mathematics, interpret these processes for what they might mean for classrooms, and explore/reconceptualize my complementary and competing perspectives as a mathematician and an educator. This article includes a…

Gleason, Shannon C. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2014
I argue that larger cultural concerns about human-technology interactions are seldom addressed in teacher education. This article seeks to trace cultural anxieties about technology by addressing the long-standing trope of human versus machine; examine how these concerns are manifested and addressed (or not) in popular culture, educational…
