Corriveau, Claudia; Bednarz, Nadine – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
Secondary-tertiary transition issues are explored from the perspective of ways of doing mathematics that are constituted in the implicit aspects of teachers' action. Theories of culture (Hall, 1959) and ethnomethodology (Garfinkel, 1967) provide us with a basis for describing and explicating the ways of doing mathematics specific to each teaching…

Bosch, Marianna; Gascón, Josep; Trigueros, María – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
The notion of "praxeology" from the anthropological theory of the didactic (ATD) can be used as a framework to approach what has recently been called the "networking of theories" in mathematics education. Theories are interpreted as "research praxeologies," and different modalities of "dialogues" between…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
Constructivist learning theories have become the dominant ideology in educational circles, in part, because there is a primacy on the agential individual with its definite identity. However, precisely because "to construct" is a "transitive" verb, it occludes the fact that in learning and development, we come to know something…

Knapp, Andrea; Landers, Racheal; Liang, Senfeng; Jefferson, Vetrece – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
The researchers in this study investigated the impact of mathematics-focused parental involvement on Kindergarten to Grade 8 children and parents as well as factors prompting that impact. Qualitative analysis consisting of parent, child, and teacher interviews and 3-year quantitative testing showed significant improvements in students' mathematics…

Zandieh, Michelle; Ellis, Jessica; Rasmussen, Chris – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
As part of a larger study of student understanding of concepts in linear algebra, we interviewed 10 university linear algebra students as to their conceptions of functions from high school algebra and linear transformation from their study of linear algebra. An overarching goal of this study was to examine how linear algebra students see linear…

Rellensmann, Johanna; Schukajlow, Stanislaw; Leopold, Claudia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
Drawing strategies are widely used as a powerful tool for promoting students' learning and problem solving. In this article, we report the results of an inferential mediation analysis that was applied to investigate the roles that strategic knowledge about drawing and the accuracy of different types of drawings play in mathematical modelling…

Mao, Yi; White, Tyreke; Sadler, Philip M.; Sonnert, Gerhard – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
This study investigates how the use of calculators during high school mathematics courses is associated with student performance in introductory college calculus courses in the USA. Data were drawn from a nationally representative sample of 7087 students enrolled in college calculus at 134 colleges and universities. They included information about…

Alcock, Lara; Simpson, Adrian – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
This paper describes a study in which we investigated relationships between defining mathematical concepts--increasing and decreasing infinite sequences--explaining their meanings and classifying consistently with formal definitions. We explored the effect of defining, explaining or studying a definition on subsequent classification, and the…

Sarouphim, Ketty M.; Chartouny, Madona – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
The purpose of this study was to investigate gender differences in students' mathematics achievement and in their attitudes toward mathematics. Another purpose was to examine mathematics teachers' beliefs and their perceptions of their male and female students' ability. The sample consisted of 692 students (353 girls, 339 boys) between the ages of…

Ferrara, Francesca; Ferrari, Giulia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
In this paper, we draw on the contemporary perspective of inclusive materialism offered by de Freitas and Sinclair to contribute to current discussions on the role of the body in the learning of mathematics. Using the notions of "distributed agency" and "assemblage," we illustrate the way in which three students engage with a…

Miyakawa, Takeshi – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
This paper reports the results of an international comparative study on the nature of proof to be taught in geometry. Proofs in French and Japanese lower secondary schools were explored by analyzing curricular documents: mathematics textbooks and national curricula. Analyses on the three aspects of proof--statement, proof, and theory--suggested by…

Hitt, Fernando; Saboya, Mireille; Zavala, Carlos Cortés – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
Part of the research community that has followed the Early Algebra paradigm is currently delimiting the differences between arithmetic thinking and algebraic thinking. This trend could prevent new research approaches to the problem of learning algebra, hiding the importance of considering an arithmetico-algebraic thinking, a new approach which…

Villarroel, José Domingo; Sanz Ortega, Olga – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
The studies regarding how the comprehension of geometric shapes evolves in childhood are largely based on the assessment of children's responses during the course of tasks linked to the recognition, classification or explanation of prototypes and models. Little attention has been granted to the issue as to what extent the geometric shape turns out…

Glade, Matthias; Prediger, Susanne – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
According to the design principle of progressive schematization, learning trajectories towards procedural rules can be organized as independent discoveries when the learning arrangement invites the students first to develop models for mathematical concepts and model-based informal strategies; then to explore the strategies and to discover pattern…

Corriveau, Claudia – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017
This article addresses the issue of transition from secondary to post-secondary education through collaborative research with teachers from both levels. It takes into account implicit elements in this transition. Research on the transition in mathematics education tends to focus more on the tertiary level, studying difficulties encountered by…
