Viro, Elina; Lehtonen, Daranee; Joutsenlahti, Jorma; Tahvanainen, Ville – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020

In order to thrive in today's uncertain environment, there is a need to master 21st century skills as well as knowledge of key subjects. Project-based learning (PBL) has been recommended as an important instructional strategy to prepare students for their future work and life. As teachers play an important role in classroom instructional practice,…

Palha, Sonia; Spandaw, Jeroen – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019

Learning mathematical thinking and reasoning is a main goal in mathematical education. Instructional tasks have an important role in fostering this learning. We introduce a learning sequence to approach the topic of integrals in secondary education to support students mathematical reasoning while participating in collaborative dialogue about the…

Bolstad, Oda Heidi – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019

This article reports a qualitative inquiry into school leaders' and teachers' rationales for teaching to develop students' "mathematical literacy." The study is rooted in an exploration of the meanings that the school leaders and teachers hold about the term mathematical literacy. Six leaders and three grade 9 mathematics teachers from…

Liang, Su – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018

This is an exploratory study about engaging students in mathematics learning both inside and outside of the classroom of an introductory proof course. The author utilized the framework of scholarship of teaching and learning as a guide to ensure the research process was carried out systematically. This study was conducted through one cycle of…

Usman, Ahmed Ibrahim – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

The paper investigates geometric errors students made as they tried to use their basic geometric knowledge in the solution of the Applied Calculus Optimization Problem (ACOP). Inaccuracies related to the drawing of geometric diagrams (visualization skills) and those associated with the application of basic differentiation concepts into ACOP…

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…

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…

Latterell, Carmen M.; Wilson, Janelle L. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

Preservice elementary teachers hold a variety of beliefs about mathematics and mathematics learning, which influence their teaching. Previous research has shown that preservice elementary teachers believe that mathematics is doing arithmetic. However, it is unclear if preservice elementary teachers truly believe that mathematics is only…

Prendergast, Mark; O'Meara, Niamh – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

The Irish education system is unique in an international context as it sets aside a full school year for a transition and youth development programme in the middle of secondary education. The Transition Year (TY) programme is an optional, full time programme offered in the majority of secondary schools. Each school designs its own programme,…

Roche, Joseph; O'Neill, Arlene; Prendergast, Mark – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

Science and mathematics education in Ireland is facing an increasing number of challenges due to economic and social change. Some of these challenges mirror international trends while others are unique to the Irish education system. In order to meet the demands that are being placed on science and mathematics education in Ireland at post-primary…

Cunningham, Robert F.; Rappa, Anthony – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

Surveys were used to examine mathematics teachers (15) on their ability to solve similarity problems and on their likely implementation of lesson objectives for teaching similarity. All correctly solved a similarity problem requiring a traditional static perspective, but 7 out of 15 failed to correctly solve a problem that required a more…

Shockey, T. L.; Zhang, P.; Brosnan, P. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

We explore the mathematics engagement of a group of mathematics coaches, working in k-12 mathematics education. The incenter of a triangle is used to derive an alternative formula for the area of a triangle inspired by Usiskin, Peressini, Marhisotto, and Stanley (2002).

Khan, Sumaira; Haider, Syed Zubair; Bukhari, Amjad Ali – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

The main objective of this research is to study the different instruction strategies implemented by Mathematics teachers and evaluating its affect on Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) level. To complete the study, two samples 34 teachers and 217 students were taken randomly. A five point Likert scale comprising 40 statements was prepared and…
