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…

McGowen, Mercedes A.; Davis, Gary E. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
We discuss and examine a numerical indicator--the individual gain--of students' engagement and mathematical growth in relation to an instructor's course aims and goals. The individual gain statistic assesses the fractional amount an individual student improves initial-test to final-test. We argue that an initial-test score and a final-test score,…

Can, Cihan; Clark, Kathleen Michelle – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
For several decades, literature on the history and pedagogy of mathematics has described how history of mathematics is beneficial for the teaching and learning of mathematics. We investigated the influence of a history and philosophy of mathematics (HPhM) course on students' progress through the lens of various competencies in mathematics (e.g.,…

Velazco, Derling Jose Mendoza; Martinez, Magda Francisca Cejas; Yanez, Carlos Alban; Ortega, Yanet Marisol – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
To prevent difficulties in learning mathematics, effective and innovative teaching methodologies should be used. The present study presents the results of a relational and comparative study between the application of the open number-based algorithm (ABN) and the closed number-based algorithm (CNB) method. The research was of a descriptive…

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…
