Przenioslo, Malgorzata – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2004

The paper is based on extensive research carried out on students of mathematics who had completed a university course of calculus. The basic purpose of the research was to determine the students' images of the concept of limit, that is to find out their associations, conceptions and intuitions connected with limits and to determine the degree of…

Rabijewska, Barbara; Trad, Mieczyslaw – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1985

The idea of mathematical camps for bright pupils is discussed. Some activities in such a camp include meetings with scientists, mathematical evenings, brain-teachers, semi-seminars, brainstorming, guiding texts, Olympian club, consultations, adventures, marches, and various games and competitions. These were evaluated by camp participants in…

Trelinski, G. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1983

Identified difficulties encountered in spontaneous modeling, as well as strategies, approaches, and language used in this activity. Graduate mathematics students (N=223) were asked to create a mathematical model of a biological process. Their solutions and strategies are analyzed and results described. Significant conclusions for teaching applied…

Demby, Agnieszka – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1997

Investigates different types of procedures used by students (N=108) to simplify certain algebraic expressions. Findings indicate seven types of procedures including automatization, formulas, guessing-substituting, preparatory modification, concretization, rules, and quasi-rules. Contains 30 references. (JRH)

Konior, Jan – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1993

Over 700 mathematical textbooks and monographs (especially in Polish) were studied to identify specific features of proof construction. Segmentation, delimiters, and procedure schemes were key items in analysis. Reading strategies used in other subject areas normally do not transfer successfully to mathematics. (PDD)

Urbanska, Aleksandra – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1993

Preschool children (n=115) in Poland were tested in five areas: counting, equipotency of sets, dividing, adding, and comparing. Results showed that these children already had informal knowledge of many of the concepts and skills included in the mathematics curriculum in the early grades. (PDD)

Sierpinska, Anna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1987

Presented is a report on four 45-minute sessions with a group of 17-year-old students in Poland. Sessions were the first of a series organized with aim of exploring the possibilities of elaborating didactical situations that would help students overcome epistemological obstacles related to limits. Students' attitudes pertinent to the development…
