Armando Morales-Carballo; Miguel Díaz Cárdenas; Angie Damián Mojica – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
This article presents a theoretical-didactic perspective on the formation and development of concepts concerning mathematical objects as a result of research on didactic difficulties in dealing with concepts in school. The theoretical foundation that supports the research is based on the contributions of the materialist approach to the theory of…

Segal, Ruti; Stupel, Moshe – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The benefits of technological and theoretical scaffolding were observed when pre-service teachers aiming to teach upper elementary grades were given three learning-based geometrical inquiry tasks involving inscribed circles. They were asked to collaboratively examine the accompanying geometrical illustration and data for some new or interesting…

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…

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…

Demiray, Esra; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine; Saygi, Elif – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This study aims to examine how being involved in an argumentation process relates to the formal proof process in geometry. Prospective mathematics teachers were involved in an argumentation process while producing conjectures before engaging in formal proof of the recently produced conjectures. To collect data, four geometry-proof tasks that…

Agustin, Neli; Noto, Muchamad Subali; Dewi, Irmawati Liliana Kusuma – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Mathematical resilience is an internal factor in students that is important to have in dealing with learning mathematics. This study aims to design efforts to construct mathematical resilience and develop sainsmatika-based teaching materials in constructing students' mathematical resilience. The research method used is the design method…

Winer, Michael L.; Battista, Michael T. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Constructing formal geometry proofs in is an important topic in the mathematics curriculum. But students' difficulties with proof are well documented. This article focuses on proofs that use triangle congruence postulates in US high school geometry. Examining students' proof reasoning in one-on-one task-based interviews, we analyzed students' oral…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

Castro, Paola; Gómez, Pedro; Cañadas, María C. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
We characterize the thematic trends of the "Geometry and its Applications Meeting." This meeting is held periodically in Colombia, country in which our study was carried out. We used a taxonomy of key terms specific to mathematics education to code the proceedings of this meeting. The study variables are purpose, educational level,…

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…

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…

Ilhan, Aziz; Tutak, Tayfun – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The aim of this study is to develop a valid and reliable measurement tool that measures mathematical visualization perceptions for mathematics teacher candidates. Therefore, the type of study is a survey research. Research was carried out with 462 (336 Female, 125 Male) mathematics teacher candidates from a university located in the Eastern…
