Hoyles, Celia; Noss, Richard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2008

We explore some key constructs and research themes initiated by Jim Kaput, and attempt to illuminate them further with reference to our own research. These "design principles" focus on the evolution of digital representations since the early 1990s, and we attempt to take forward our collective understanding of the cognitive and cultural…

Noss, Richard; Bakker, Arthur; Hoyles, Celia; Kent, Phillip – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2007

We investigate the use and knowledge of graphs in the context of a large industrial factory. We are particularly interested in the question of "transparency", a question that has been extensively considered in the general literature on tool use and, more recently, by Michael Roth and his colleagues in the context of scientific work. Roth uses the…

Noss, Richard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2001

Discusses the changed roles of mathematics and novel representations that emerge from the ubiquity of computational models. Considers the implications for learning mathematics. Contends that a central component of knowledge required in modern societies involves the development of a meta-epistemological stance. Maps out implications for the design…

Noss, Richard; Pozzi, Stefano; Hoyles, Celia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1999

Presents a study on the meanings of average and variation displayed by pediatric nurses. Traces how these meanings shape and are shaped by nurses' interpretations of trends in patient and population data. Suggests a theoretical framework for making sense of the data that compares and contrasts nurses' epistemology with that of official…

Pozzi, Stefano; Noss, Richard; Hoyles, Celia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1998

Analyzes the notion of structuring resources and their role in shaping mathematical activity. Examines ways in which nurses conceptualize ratio and proportion problems and provides a case study of two nurses discussing conflicting strategies when monitoring the fluid balance of a patient. Draws out some implications for the design of viable…

Noss, Richard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1988

Examined is the cultural impact--both actual and potential--of the computer on children's mathematical education. The ways in which the introduction of the computer does and will change the ambient space in which children learn mathematics is considered. (Author/PK)

Hoyles, Celia; Noss, Richard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1992

Described is the attempt to identify relationships between pedagogy and student behavior in a mathematical microworld. The patterns of teaching associated with LOGO-based computer activities involving ratio and proportion and the teachers role in helping students bridge the gap between LOGO- and school-mathematics practices are explored.

Noss, Richard; Healy, Lulu; Hoyles, Celia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1997

Explores the relationship between learners' actions, visualizations, and the means by which these are articulated. Describes a microworld called Mathsticks which is designed to help students construct mathematical meanings by forging links between the visual and symbolic representations they develop and their actions. Presents a case study of two…

Moreira, Candida; Noss, Richard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1995

Describes and analyzes attitudes of two Portuguese elementary teachers toward mathematics, mathematics teaching, and use of computers in instruction. Semistructured interviews and questionnaires, before and after an inservice LOGO computer course, showed that both teachers changed their attitude, but only one implemented her ideas in teaching. (20…

Noss, Richard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1986

This study, part of a longitudinal investigation, examined the kinds of thinking which children aged 10 and 11 could carry over from Logo instruction to an algebraic context. Interviews focused on their ability to construct meaningful symbolization for the concept of variable and to construct formalized algebraic rules. (MNS)
