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…

Ulises García-Teutli; José Antonio Juárez-López – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
Although student covariation reasoning has been explored in depth to improve understanding of the correspondence between variables, research has focused on studying existing reasoning about variables in Cartesian representations. The working method had a qualitative approach, with a descriptive exploratory scope, the spontaneous representations…

Lynch-Arroyo, Ruby L.; Tchoshanov, Mourat; Medina-Jerez, William – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Teacher productive disposition is considered as one of the key strands of mathematical proficiency. Teacher disposition and positioning (disposition in action) toward mathematics influence student learning. However, teachers' productive disposition does not always translate into productive positioning in the mathematics classroom, and vice versa.…

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…

Winer, Michael L.; Battista, Michael T. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Constructing formal geometry proofs in is an important topic in the mathematics curriculum. But students' difficulties with proof are well documented. This article focuses on proofs that use triangle congruence postulates in US high school geometry. Examining students' proof reasoning in one-on-one task-based interviews, we analyzed students' oral…

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…

Lundberg, Anna L. V. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
This case study explores how 12-13-year-old students encounter proportional reasoning while working with geometric patterning tasks using concrete materials. The focus is on the students' use of spontaneous concepts when first dealing with such patterns in the context of collaborative work. Based on video recordings of a single lesson, a…
