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…

Hall, Jennifer; Suurtamm, Christine – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Media play an important role in young people's lives as an agent of socialization, both generally and with regard to mathematics. To understand the mathematics-related messages disseminated to young people via popular media, we analyzed portrayals of mathematics and mathematicians in over 40 media examples (television shows, movies, websites,…

Lemonidis, Charalampos; Pilianidis, Nikos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
One of the attributes of rational numbers that make them different from integers are the different symbolic modes (fraction, decimal and percentage) to which an identical number can be attributed (e.g. 1/4, 0.25 and 25%). Some research has identified students' difficulty in mental calculations with rational numbers as has also the switching to…
