Tye Campbell; Haleigh Sears – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
The effectiveness of group problem-solving in mathematics depends on the extent to which meaningful participation is distributed across all group members. One way to explore how participation is distributed within groups is by examining how students are positioned within group interactions. In this study, we explore the social instructional…

Seyum Getenet – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This study compared the problem-solving abilities of ChatGPT and 58 pre-service teachers (PSTs) in solving a mathematical word problem using various strategies. PSTs were asked to solve a problem individually. Data was collected from PSTs' submitted assignments, and their problem-solving strategies were analyzed. ChatGPT was also given the same…

Alev Gunes Uzun – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
Mathematical reasoning has been a critical concern in Turkey especially since the structure of the student selection examination for high schools changed six years ago. The ability to solve the questions in the new exam requires high level reasoning and argumentation skills. Schools, whether they are public or private, prepare 8th graders for this…

Anastasia Michalopoulou; Sonia Kafoussi – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This paper argues that engaging students in informal statistical reasoning from early school years is essential for the development of statistical understanding. We investigated if and how children aged six-seven years old identified variation in a table of data and made predictions through the design of a teaching experiment. The classroom…

Joumana Tawil; Brandon Dickson; Donna Kotsopoulos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This study explores elementary teacher and administrator perspectives related to mathematics specialty teachers in elementary schools, in a jurisdiction, where such roles were known by researchers to not be used. Mathematics specialty teachers are those teachers that have specialized training in both mathematics content and pedagogy. Online…

Londoño, Daniel; Alsina, Ángel – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
A review of studies analyzing the statistical knowledge of primary schoolchildren (6-12 years old) is carried out. Based on a review in JCR/SSCI, Scopus, Eric, Google Scholar, Science Direct, World Scientific, Springer, and Wiley Online library, 18 articles (2003-2021) have been identified and analyzed based on two objectives: (1) to identify the…

Skultety, Lisa; Saclarides, Evthokia Stephanie; Bajwa, Neet Priya; Brown, Karie; Poetzel, Adam; Gerardo, Juan Manuel – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
We, six elementary mathematics teacher educators (MTEs), noticed that many of our elementary pre-service teachers (EPSTs) were limited by their views of mathematics, typically as the result of their prior experiences with learning mathematics. Much of the research around such limiting views focuses primarily on negative experiences or treats such…

Tekin Dede, Ayse; Bukova Guzel, Esra – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The aim of this study is to investigate both the planning and implementation process of a modelling task by a middle school mathematics teacher. The participant of the study, which was conducted as a single case study, is a middle school mathematics teacher who have knowledge and experience in modelling. The data collecting tools of this study…

Cotic, Mara; Doz, Daniel; Valencic Zuljan, Milena; Žakelj, Amalija; Felda, Darjo – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
In the present study, we were interested in the appraisal by teachers who have had experience with an individual form of differentiation of the efficiency of grouping learners into homogenous or heterogeneous groups. In the study, seven aspects were thus considered: (1) the learning performance and motivation of learners, (2) the learners'…

Watanabe, Nobuki – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The role of executive function training in supporting child development has been increasingly studied. Executive function is largely related to the prefrontal cortex. The anterior portion of the prefrontal cortex, which is area 10 on the Brodmann map, is essential for the emergence of higher-order executive functions. Accumulating evidence…

Yilmaz, Nadide; Yetkin Ozdemir, Iffet Elif – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
It is important to note that the development of pre-service teachers' noticing abilities does not happen spontaneously; hence, assistance programs are crucial. This qualitative study aimed to examine pre-service teachers' noticing of student thinking within the context of lesson study. Three pre-service teachers conducted three lesson study…

Hartman, JudithAnn R.; Hart, Sarah; Nelson, Eric Alan; Kirschner, Paul A. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
To learn mathematics, historically students had no choice but to memorize fundamental facts and apply memorized algorithms. Since 1995 in the US, all states have adopted standards to govern K-12 mathematics instruction, and in most, standards have de-emphasized memorization and emphasized reasoning based on concepts. This change assumed the brain…

Wienecke, Lisa-Marie; Leiss, Dominik; Ehmke, Timo – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This study investigates the extent to which student and task-related characteristics are associated with different types of note-taking and analyzes how task success depends on these elements. For this purpose, a sample of n=866 students (age: mean=13.99) completing two reality-based tasks as part of a paper and pencil test are considered. The…

Ana Kuzle; Dubravka Glasnovic Gracin; Ana Krišto – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Climate conducive to learning is one of criteria of good teaching. Even though current pedagogies argue for contemporary type of instruction, mathematics instruction may still be dominated by traditional type of instruction. The present study examined participant-produced drawings of 250 primary grade students regarding geometry teaching and…
