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…

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…

Khasawneh, Elaina; Hodge-Zickerman, Angie; York, Cindy S.; Smith, Thomas J.; Mayall, Hayley – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The focus of this study was to examine the effect of teaching based on inquiry-based learning versus traditional learning on mathematics achievement scores of undergraduate students enrolled in a college algebra class in a university classified as a Predominantly Black Institution. A college algebra course was chosen in this study due to the…

Renata Teófilo de Sousa; Francisco Régis Vieira Alves; Ana Paula Aires – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This work is the result of a pre-experiment carried out as part of a master's course, dealing with the study of the parabola through different mathematical views. It aims to recognize possible didactic obstacles in its teaching, based on intuitive manifestations in the resolution of a didactic situation based on GeoGebra software. The methodology…

Cristina Vladescu – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This study aims at highlighting the relationship between mastery learning models and academic performance in mathematics, moderated by the number of hours allotted to studying mathematics. There are 305 first to eighth-grade students who learn at "Nae A. Ghica Middle School" in Romania. Students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades…

Budak, Kimberly Sirin; Akcay Ozkan, Zeynep – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
In this paper, we report the analysis of thought processes used by Pre-Service Teachers' (PSTs') through clinical interviews as they solved an algebra task involving a linear pattern. The PST's were asked about a mathematical model they had constructed to describe a pattern problem. Our analysis suggests that conflict factors arise due to…

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…

Ali, Clement Ayarebilla – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Realistic mathematics education (RME) has proven to be an effective model for mathematics elsewhere. However, students and teachers still grapple to confront the circle equation to learn and teachers to teach. This study explored students' didactical phenomenological discourses in the circle equation as an alternative. The mixed methods research…

Hurdle, Zachariah Benton; Mogilski, Wiktor – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
We conducted a quantitative analysis to determine how the prerequisite path of students taking calculus I impacts their grade performance. We began by investigating the performance of students that took college algebra and trigonometry versus those that took pre-calculus ahead of their credit-bearing calculus I attempt. We concluded that there was…

Conner, Kimberly A. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The generality requirement, or the requirement that a proof must demonstrate a claim to be true for all cases within its domain, represents one of the most important, yet challenging aspects of proof for students to understand. This article presents a multi-faceted framework for identifying aspects of students' work that have the potential to…

Mollakuqe, Vesa; Rexhepi, Shpetim; Iseni, Egzona – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The most influential books on geometry are those of Euclid called "Elements". In our century, in addition to classical learning, various interactive software are used in teaching geometry. Among them, we can mention GeoGebra. GeoGebra is an interactive math measurement program that consists of teaching and learning from elementary to…

Mainali, Bhesh – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Preferences for solution methods have an important implication teaching and learning mathematics and students' mathematical performances. In the domain of learning mathematics, there are two modes of processing mathematical information: verbal logical and visual-pictorial. Learners who process mathematical information using verbal logical and…

Makhubele , Yeyisani Evans – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
This paper presents an analysis of fractions errors displayed by learners due to deficient mastery of prerequisite concepts. Fractions continue to pose a critical challenge for learners. Fractions can be a tricky concept for learners although they often use the concept of sharing in their daily lives. 30 purposefully sampled learners participated…
