Downton, Ann; Sullivan, Peter – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

While the general planning advice offered to mathematics teachers seems to be to start with simple examples and build complexity progressively, the research reported in this article is a contribution to the body of literature that argues the reverse. That is, posing of appropriately complex tasks may actually prompt the use of more sophisticated…

FitzSimons, Gail E.; Björklund Boistrup, Lisa – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

Preparing students for their lives beyond schooling appears to be a universal goal of formal education. Much has been done to make mathematics education more "realistic," but such activities nevertheless generally remain within the institutional norms of education. In this article, we assume that pedagogic relations are also an integral…

Bass, Hyman – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

Mathematicians commonly distinguish two modes of work in the discipline: "Problem solving," and "theory building." Mathematics education offers many opportunities to learn problem solving. This paper explores the possibility, and value, of designing instructional activities that provide supported opportunities for students to…

Schüler-Meyer, Alexander – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

After being introduced to the distributive law in meaningful contexts, students need to extend its scope of application to unfamiliar expressions. In this article, a process model for the development of structure sense is developed. Building on this model, this article reports on a design research project in which exercise tasks support students…

Weiland, Travis – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

In this paper, I problematize traditional notions of statistical literacy by juxtaposing it with critical literacy. At the school level statistical literacy is vitally important for students who are preparing to become citizens in modern societies that are increasingly shaped and driven by data based arguments. The teaching of statistics, which is…

Remillard, Janine; Kim, Ok-Kyeong – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

This paper proposes a framework for identifying the mathematical knowledge teachers activate when using curriculum resources. We use the term "knowledge of curriculum embedded mathematics" (KCEM) to refer to the mathematics knowledge activated by teachers when reading and interpreting mathematical tasks, instructional designs, and…

Markovits, Zvia; Forgasz, Helen – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

The aim of this study was to explore the beliefs of elementary school students about mathematics and about themselves as mathematics learners. The participants, Israeli grade 4 and grade 6 students, completed questionnaires. Using an "animal metaphor" to tap beliefs, some students perceived mathematics as difficult and complicated, while…

Xie, Jinxia; Masingila, Joanna O. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

Existing studies have quantitatively evidenced the relatedness between problem posing and problem solving, as well as the magnitude of this relationship. However, the nature and features of this relationship need further qualitative exploration. This paper focuses on exploring the interactions, i.e., mutual effects and supports, between problem…

Jeannotte, Doris; Kieran, Carolyn – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

The development of students' mathematical reasoning (MR) is a goal of several curricula and an essential element of the culture of the mathematics education research community. But what mathematical reasoning consists of is not always clear; it is generally assumed that everyone has a sense of what it is. Wanting to clarify the elements of MR,…

Tsamir, Pessia; Tirosh, Dina; Levenson, Esther S.; Barkai, Ruthi; Tabach, Michal – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

This paper describes kindergarten children's engagement with two patterning activities. The first activity includes two tasks in which children are asked to choose possible ways for extending two different repeating patterns and the second activity calls for comparing different pairs of repeating patterns. Children's recognition of the unit of…

Iori, Maura – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

In mathematical activities and in the analysis of mathematics teaching-learning processes, "objects," "signs", and "representations" are often mentioned, where the meaning assigned to those words is sometimes very broad, sometimes limited, other times intuitive, allusive, or not completely clear. On the other hand, as…

Pepin, Birgit; Xu, Binyan; Trouche, Luc; Wang, Chongyang – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

In order to develop a deeper understanding of mathematics teaching expertise, in this study we use the Documentational Approach to Didactics to explore the resource systems of three Chinese mathematics "expert" teachers. Exploiting the Western and Eastern literature we examine the notion of "mathematics teaching expertise", as…

Mogari, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

The paper reports on the use of culturally relevant teaching in a class located in a patriarchal community. The paper is conceptualised around the notion that learners' familiar context provided by the socio-cultural activities can facilitate mathematics learning and make it fun to learn. Data were derived from a lesson activity using…

Bozkurt, Gulay; Ruthven, Kenneth – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

This study examines the classroom practice and craft knowledge underpinning one teacher's integration of the use of GeoGebra software into mathematics teaching. The chosen teacher worked in an English secondary school and was professionally well regarded as an accomplished user of digital technology in mathematics teaching. Designed in accordance…

Cueto, Santiago; León, Juan; Sorto, M. Alejandra; Miranda, Alejandra – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2017

After improving enrolment rates significantly, many developing countries such as Peru are facing the challenge to increase learning levels among students. Over the past few years, many researchers have turned to teacher-related variables as a way to better understand classroom processes that may help increase learning levels among students. In…
