Gál-Szabó, Zsófia; Bede-Fazekas, Ákos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Students' solutions of enumerative combinatorial problems may be assessed along two main dimensions: the correctness of the solution and the method of enumeration. This study looks at the second dimension with reference to the Cartesian product of two sets, and at the 'odometer' combinatorial strategy defined by English (1991). Since we are not…

Ambrus, Gabriella; Kónya, Eszter Herendiné; Kovács, Zoltán; Szitányi, Judit; Csíkos, Csaba – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Several investigations have revealed that students tend to exclude their real-world knowledge when solving simple, routine-like mathematical word problems. The current research is a cross-sectional developmental analysis with students from grade 2 to 10 (N=1346). Other than describing the development (or lack thereof) in students' realistic…
