O'Meara, Niamh; Fitzmaurice, Olivia; Johnson, Patrick – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Mathematics teacher educators in the University of Limerick became aware of a lack of conceptual understanding of key mathematics concepts of prospective secondary mathematics teachers through observation on teaching placement and in pedagogy lectures. A pilot study to enhance the conceptual understanding of prospective teachers was carried out…

Fyhn, Anne Birgitte – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Students in Norway and other countries experience vectors as a difficult topic. Four young skilled climbers, who all did well in mathematics at school, participated in the Vector Study (VS). They participated for free and each lesson lasted until the students decided it was over. The idea was to investigate how climbing may function as a basis for…

Ramful, Ajay; Bedgood, Danny; Lowrie, Thomas – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This paper is the outcome of a collaborative endeavour between mathematics and science educators where the insight from each field mutually informed one another. Specifically, building on the knowledge base from mathematics education research, this study analyses the ways in which percent is interpreted by first year university students in general…

Laswadi; Kusumah, Yaya S.; Darwis, Sutawanir; Afgani, Jarnawi D. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Conceptual understanding (CU) and procedural fluency (PF) are two important mathematical competencies required by students. CU helps students organizing their knowledge into a coherent whole, and PF helps them to find the right solution of a problem. In order to enhance CU and PF, students need learning experiences in constructing knowledge and…

Scott, Fraser J. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The "mathematics problem" is a well-known source of difficulty for students attempting numerical problem solving questions in the context of science education. This paper illuminates this problem from a biology education perspective by invoking Hogan's numeracy framework. In doing so, this study has revealed that the contextualisation of…

Berman, Abraham; Shvartsman, Ludmila – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In this paper we describe an experiment in a linear algebra course. The aim of the experiment was to promote the students' understanding of the studied concepts focusing on their definitions. It seems to be a given that students should understand concepts' definitions before working substantially with them. Unfortunately, in many cases they do…

Shahbari, Juhaina; Daher, Wajeeh – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study came to characterize the features of mathematical models built by mathematics pre-service teachers for a model eliciting activity. Fourteen groups participated in building the models. We used a combination of deductive and inductive content analysis to characterize the pre-service teachers' elicited models, taking into account features…

Egodawatte, Gunawardena; Stoilescu, Dorian – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The purpose of this mixed-method study was to investigate grade 11 university/college stream mathematics students' difficulties in applying conceptual knowledge, procedural skills, strategic competence, and algebraic thinking in solving routine (instructional) algebraic problems. A standardized algebra test was administered to thirty randomly…

Pešic, Duška; Pešic, Aleksandar – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In this paper we introduce a new collaborative technique in teaching and learning the epsilon-delta definition of a continuous function at the point from its domain, which connects mathematical logic, combinatorics and calculus. This collaborative approach provides an opportunity for mathematical high school students to engage in mathematical…

Usman, Ahmed Ibrahim – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Knowledge and understanding of mathematical operations serves as a pre-reequisite for the successful translation of algebraic word problems. This study explored pre-service teachers' ability to recognize mathematical operations as well as use of those capabilities in constructing algebraic expressions, equations, and their solutions. The outcome…
