Arta Aliu; Shpetim Rexhepi; Egzona Iseni – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Various features have been found hidden in the Pascal triangle. In this paper, some very well-known properties of the Pascal triangle will be presented, as well as the properties related to different extensions of the triangle, namely the Pascal pyramid. Given that in the textbooks of the tenth grade, respectively in the school, where we realised…

Ferretti, Federica – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The learning of algebra represents a difficulty within the mathematics learning process. Precisely because of their epistemological and ontological nature, semiotics provides a good key to understanding the main difficulties that hinder the learning of algebraic objects. The answers to a large scale assessments task that requires a treatment in…
