Nurnberger-Haag, Julie; Kratky, Joseph; Karpinski, Aryn C. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Skills and understanding of operations with negative numbers, which are typically taught in middle school, are crucial aspects of numerical competence necessary for all subsequent mathematics. To more swiftly and coherently develop the field's understanding of how to foster this critical competence, we need shared measures that allow us to compare…

Ishibashi, Ippo – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Probability is a difficult concept, which is not always taught accurately. This study aims to clarify how experimental and theoretical probabilities are taught in Japanese 7th and 8th grades through a textbook analysis. We analyzed seven, government approved Japanese 7th and 8th grade textbooks each. Focusing on the definition and explanation of…

Büscher, Christian – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Teachers do not directly implement new teaching materials, but rather adapt them. For changing teaching practice, research requires more insights into these adaptions. This study draws on the Theory of Instrumental Genesis to describe the ways teachers adopt the percentage bar model to create different learning opportunities. The results of the…

Youkap, Patrick Tchonang; Ngansop, Judith Njomgang; Tieudjo, Daniel; Pedemonte, Bettina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of this article is to better understand how proof is introduced into the study of quadrilaterals and triangles in high school. To do this, we designed a grid to analyse mathematics textbooks in Cameroon francophone subsystems (7th Grade and 8th Grade). The Anthropological Theory of Didactics and the paradigms in geometry served as a…
