Brewster, Barbara Jane; Miller, Tess – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Competency in mathematics is needed to respond to the vast employment opportunities available in the STEM sectors. These employment opportunities all require basic foundational mathematics skills, yet there is a shortfall of mathematics abilities due, in-part, to mathematics anxiety. Mathematics anxiety can surface as fear and avoidance of…

Irene Mauricio Cazorla; Miriam Cardoso Utsumi; Sandra Maria Magina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This article aims to present a first approximation of the conceptual field of measures of central tendency (MCT), grounded in the theory of conceptual fields. We propose six situations according to type of variable, data presentation (raw or grouped) and amount of data. We revisit specific situations for the mean and exemplify several…

Chamberlin, Michelle – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
For teachers to provide students with meaningful instruction in area measurement, teachers need robust understandings of area. Here, I describe two cycles of a "lesson experiment" used to investigate prospective teachers' understandings of area units in an undergraduate mathematics class. For each cycle, I collected and analyzed the…

Roldán-Zafra, Juan; Perea, Carmen; Polo-Blanco, Irene; Campillo, Pedro – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The recent increase in the number of mathematics museums has given rise to a need for tools with which to design and assess mathematics educational proposals in this non-formal context. This study proposes the use of the van Hiele model, a benchmark in mathematics instruction, for the design of interactive museum models focusing on mathematics…

Parrish, Christopher W.; Bryd, Kelly O. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
A clear relationship exists between the consistent selection and implementation of cognitively demanding tasks and students' conceptual understanding of mathematics. However, mathematics teachers often struggle to maintain the cognitive demand of implemented tasks, with a number of factors identified as contributing to this decline. As many…

Elbehary, Samah Gamal Ahmed – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Probability signifies a mainstream strand in mathematics curricula. Nonetheless, many curricular documents prepared for teachers might not offer enough support. In such a situation, a further reflection on teachers' professional knowledge for teaching probability is demanded; especially, from the perspective of probabilistic reasoning (PoPR) that…

Marks, Andrew; Woolcott, Geoff; Markopoulos, Christos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
This article outlines an approach to bridging the gap between the theory and practice of differentiated instruction. Differentiated instruction has long been suggested as a pedagogical approach to cater for student individuality and diversity, particularly in mixed-ability classrooms. Although the theory of differentiated instruction has been…

Fralish, Zachary David; Hallmark, Nathan; Marshall, Johnathon – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The SIMIODE Challenge for Undergraduates in Differential Equation Modelling (SCUDEM) offers students the opportunity to improve their mathematical capacity, ability to think critically, and communication skills through researching, developing, and presenting on a differential equations model for a natural phenomenon. During the fall 2019 SCUDEM,…

Brewster, Barbara Jane Melissa; Miller, Tess – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
In our technologically advanced society proficiency in mathematics is paramount to success in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) employment sector. Mathematics anxiety negatively affects an individual's physiological and cognitive functioning, which results in the individual obtaining lower achievement in mathematics. The…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Vieira, Renata Passos Machado; Catarino, Paula Maria Machado Cruz – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
In this work, recurrent and linear sequences are studied, exploring the teaching of these numbers with the aid of a computational resource, known as Google Colab. Initially, a brief historical exploration inherent to these sequences is carried out, as well as the construction of the characteristic equation of each one. Thus, their respective roots…

Heffernan, Kayla; Peterson, Steven; Kaplan, Avi; Newton, Kristie J. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Students' relationships with mathematics continuously remain problematic, and researchers have begun to look at this issue through the lens of identity. In this article, the researchers discuss identity in education research, specifically in mathematics classrooms, and break down the various perspective on identity. A review of recent literature…

Brito, Luciana Pereira; Almeida, Leandro Silva; Osório, António José Meneses – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Long have we known that reasoning abilities are linked to learning, and specifically to learning mathematics. Even intelligence, considered a controversial construct, plays a significant role in the research on the explanation of academic performance. This article intends to highlight some important cognitive abilities or dimensions relevant to…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Machado Vieira, Renata Passos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The work deals with the study of the roots of the characteristic polynomial derived from the Leonardo sequence, using the Newton fractal to perform a root search. Thus, Google Colab is used as a computational tool to facilitate this process. Initially, we conducted a study of the Leonardo sequence, addressing it fundamental recurrence,…

Zhang, Xuemao; Maas, Zoe – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
The use of computer simulations in the teaching of introductory statistics can help undergraduate students understand difficult or abstract statistics concepts. The free software environment R is a good candidate for computer simulations since it allows users to add additional functionality by defining new functions. In this paper, we illustrate…

Mendes, Iran Abreu – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2019
In this article I present some notes and reflections on possible ways to be adopted in teaching practice in Mathematics for the incorporation of meanings in teaching and learning of school mathematics in face of the cultural diversity in which the school is situated and constituted in the 21st century through the perspective of globalization. It…
