Bednorz, David; Kleine, Michael – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The study examines language dimensions of mathematical word problems and the classification of mathematical word problems according to these dimensions with unsupervised machine learning (ML) techniques. Previous research suggests that the language dimensions are important for mathematical word problems because it has an influence on the…

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…

Büscher, Carina; Andresen, Mette Susanne – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Many studies on professionalization research deal with the question of how teachers actually learn or how teacher change occurs. In this context, Clarke and Hollingsworth (2002) describe a model for capturing teacher change in different domains (external, personal, domain of practice and domain of consequence) and how changes in one domain can…

Pielsticker, Felicitas – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The paper addresses concept formation processes of students in the field of geometry. More precisely, the paper deals with the questions of what knowledge do students activate about triangles in different contexts with different (digital) tools and furthermore what content-related meaning do they give to the concept of triangles? Methodologically,…

Henschen, Esther; Teschner, Martina; Vogler, Anna-Marietha – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Since the 2000s, early co-constructive mathematical learning in kindergarten has focused on political discussions and (mathematical-didactic) research. This is because kindergarten is the first place for subject-specific learning, next to socialization in the family. Research on this first institutional learning in the kindergarten often focuses…

Lenz, Katja; Wittmann, Gerald – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
There is a general consensus that both conceptual and procedural knowledge are essential for students' mathematical development. A common argument is that differences in mathematical performance are caused by differences in conceptual and procedural knowledge. Therefore, it is important to investigate to what extent such differences in conceptual…

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…

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…

Choy, Ban Heng; Lee, Mi Yeon; Mizzi, Angel – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Textbooks, which form the staples of a teacher's set of resources, play a critical role in deciding what and how mathematics is taught in classrooms. However, textbooks do not always present concepts in ways that enhance understanding by students, nor are they always comprehensive in the treatment of a topic. In this exploratory study, we analyse…

Liebscher, Eckhard; Michael, Ben – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
In the paper a software solution is presented for the generation of instances of exercises. The focus is on education in mathematics but the approach can be adopted in other fields such as computer science and natural science. The present solution uses the R environment for the generation process and LaTeX for the content presentation. In the…
