Rosa Isela González-Polo; Apolo Castaneda – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This article aims to analyze the process of the progressive mathematization of the concept of the function by secondary school students through the resolution of a free fall situation. A free-fall mathematical situation was designed and experimented using the Tracker software to obtain movement data. Worksheets and conversations were collected…

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…

González Peralta, Angelina G.; Aguilar, Mario Sánchez – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Educational research has reported different benefits related to the use of practice tests. In the case of the teaching and learning of mathematics, evidence has been found that the use of practice tests is associated with an improved performance in standardized tests. However, it is less known about the emotions that students experience during…

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.…

Morales Carballo, Armando; Damián Mojica, Angie; Marmolejo Vega, José Efrén – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
A theoretical-didactic proposal based on variational ideas and the use of GeoGebra is described as a response to a local problem on the understanding of the concept of function and quadratic equation in pre-university students. The theoretical elements of this work are based on the understanding of concepts and the theory of semiotic registers and…

Cabañas-Ramírez, Noé Oswaldo; Locia-Espinoza, Edgardo; Morales-Carballo, Armando – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper shows the results of the epistemological and didactical analysis of the sense of variation of functions. Specifically, on the conceptions of growth and decay in a function that underlie the demonstrations of the theorem that links the sign of "f" with the sense of variation of "f". The epistemological approach…

Locia-Espinoza, Edgardo; Morales-Carballo, Armando; Merino-Cruz, Héctor – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
This paper reports the results of three questionnaires applied to sixty-seven students preparing to become university-level mathematics teachers; the questionnaires were focused on knowing their conceptions and their mastery of the representations of functions in the development of power series. The theoretical and methodological background rests…

Moguel, Landy Elena Sosa; Landa, Eddie Aparicio; Cabañas-Sánchez, Guadalupe – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper reports on the characterization of the inductive reasoning used by middle school mathematics teachers to solve a task of generalization of a quadratic pattern. The data was collected from individual interviews and the written answers to the generalization task. The analysis was based on the representations and justifications used to…

Tejeda, Santa; Dominguez, Angeles – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Understanding a graph in pairs, in a productive way, improves the comprehension of a concept. In this research, we had 2 objectives: 1) to delve deep into the behavior of 15 pairs of remedial physics students when solving a problem with a graph of velocity, 2) to understand the interchange of personal meanings during their interactions. We posed…

Escalera Chávez, Milka Elena; Moreno García, Elena; Rojas Kramer, Carlos Alberto – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the fact that mathematics is present and necessary in any area of daily life, students have little interest in developing mathematical skills. Hence, the aim of the study is to check whether the variables motivation, usefulness, anxiety, confidence, and liking are determining in their attitude towards mathematics. The present research is…

García-Santillán, Arturo – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
Frequently, the shadow of financial insolvency is present in economies, whether between countries, companies or the general population (people) who contract the obligation of a loan, credit or other debt. Debt restructuring is one of the most effective financial tools to face this. Through mathematical modeling with algorithms designed for the…

Cuevas, Omar; Larios, Victor; Peralta, Julia X.; Jiménez, Angélica R. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2018
Background: The previous knowledge which a student brings with him to university is an important item which eases adaptation and permanence at the university. When a diagnostic exam to evaluate the knowledge students have in Mathematics, their deficiencies from previous studies become clear. At the Instituto Tecnológico de Sonora a diagnostic exam…

García-Santillán, Arturo; Ochoa-Domínguez, Tomás Elio; Ramos-Hernández, Jésica Josefina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2018
The aim of the study was to measure the level of anxiety towards mathematics among workers in the production area of a factory in the sugar industry. In order to carry out this study, the Muñoz y Mato-Vázquez scale was used (2007) and adapted to the working area. 283 workers from the three different shifts (morning, afternoon and night) were…
