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…

Portaankorva-Koivisto, Päivi Maria; Laine, Anu Tuulikki; Ahtee, Maija – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The use of open problem-solving tasks in mathematics education challenges teachers' beliefs, knowledge and practices. This article examines the practices of two primary teachers and their 3rd to 5th grade classes during a three-year in-service teacher training project aiming to increase mathematical problem-solving in class. Three lesson videos…

Dröse, Jennifer; Prediger, Susanne; Neugebauer, Philipp; Delucchi Danhier, Renate; Mertins, Barbara – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Syntactic language features of word problems have often been identified by assessment studies and interview studies as potential obstacles in word problem solving. However, students' processes of noticing and interpreting these features have only rarely been investigated in depth because noticing is hard to investigate. Eye-tracking methodology…

Sari, Mehmet Hayri; Herzog, Moritz; Olkun, Sinan; Fritz, Annemarie – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Research has shown that a profound place value understanding is crucial for success in learning mathematics. At the same time, a substantial number of students struggles with developing a sustainable place value understanding. In this regard, two aspects of the place value system appear especially relevant: First, the knowledge of the decimal…

Nisawa, Yoshiki – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
According to the Programme for International Student Assessment, functions constitute an important part of mathematical literacy. In Japan, students start learning about bivariate relationships in the fourth grade (at the age of 9). However, reports suggest that elementary school students and lower-level secondary school (junior high) students…

Kwon, Hyunkyung; Capraro, Mary Margaret – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Problem-posing activities have been shown to motivate students' learning while promoting a multifaceted and interesting educational environment. Moreover, these activities enable students to be engaged in personal interpretations of their own mathematical thinking. The purpose of this study was to determine if using a handson learning intervention…

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,…
