Tye Campbell; Haleigh Sears – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
The effectiveness of group problem-solving in mathematics depends on the extent to which meaningful participation is distributed across all group members. One way to explore how participation is distributed within groups is by examining how students are positioned within group interactions. In this study, we explore the social instructional…

Anastasia Michalopoulou; Sonia Kafoussi – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This paper argues that engaging students in informal statistical reasoning from early school years is essential for the development of statistical understanding. We investigated if and how children aged six-seven years old identified variation in a table of data and made predictions through the design of a teaching experiment. The classroom…

Ana Kuzle; Dubravka Glasnovic Gracin; Ana Krišto – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Climate conducive to learning is one of criteria of good teaching. Even though current pedagogies argue for contemporary type of instruction, mathematics instruction may still be dominated by traditional type of instruction. The present study examined participant-produced drawings of 250 primary grade students regarding geometry teaching and…

Watanabe, Nobuki – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The role of executive function training in supporting child development has been increasingly studied. Executive function is largely related to the prefrontal cortex. The anterior portion of the prefrontal cortex, which is area 10 on the Brodmann map, is essential for the emergence of higher-order executive functions. Accumulating evidence…

Pielsticker, Felicitas – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The paper addresses concept formation processes of students in the field of geometry. More precisely, the paper deals with the questions of what knowledge do students activate about triangles in different contexts with different (digital) tools and furthermore what content-related meaning do they give to the concept of triangles? Methodologically,…

Ayieko, Rachel Angela; Moreano, Giovanna; Harter, Lauren – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Without a conceptual understanding of fraction magnitude, students have difficulties understanding more advanced mathematics in high school and beyond. The purpose of this study is to highlight 4th and 8th grade students' misconceptions in fraction magnitude using the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2015 data. The study is…

Gumiero, Bárbara Silva; Pazuch, Vinícius – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Mathematics classes have contingency situations in the relationship established between teacher and students. The objective of the article is "to understand the dimensions of the teacher's knowledge that are constituted in the development/execution of tasks on geometric concepts in interaction with students." For this, a collaborative…

Dröse, Jennifer; Prediger, Susanne; Neugebauer, Philipp; Delucchi Danhier, Renate; Mertins, Barbara – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Syntactic language features of word problems have often been identified by assessment studies and interview studies as potential obstacles in word problem solving. However, students' processes of noticing and interpreting these features have only rarely been investigated in depth because noticing is hard to investigate. Eye-tracking methodology…

Guberman, Raisa; Tsybulsky, Dina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The study investigates mathematics lesson plans that teachers produced for re-teaching purposes. Its goal is to determine which aspects of mathematics-content knowledge are expressed in lesson plans on the topic of fractions prepared by primary math teachers and intended for underachieving students, and to see how these aspects are manifested. The…

Sari, Mehmet Hayri; Herzog, Moritz; Olkun, Sinan; Fritz, Annemarie – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Research has shown that a profound place value understanding is crucial for success in learning mathematics. At the same time, a substantial number of students struggles with developing a sustainable place value understanding. In this regard, two aspects of the place value system appear especially relevant: First, the knowledge of the decimal…

De Vittori, Thomas – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Based on an experiment carried out with 10- to 11-year-old pupils, this paper questions the place of imagination in a class activity using the history of mathematics. The study focuses on three groups of pupils who were offered three variants of the same activity based on base-60 counting (our time measurement system inherited from the…
