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…

Piña-Aguirre, José Gerardo; Farfán Márquez, Rosa María – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
With the objective of identifying intrinsic forms of mathematical production in complex analysis (CA), this study presents an analysis of the mathematical activity of five original works that contributed to the development of Cauchy's integral theorem. The analysis of the mathematical activity was carried out through the identification of the…

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…

Bednorz, David; Kleine, Michael – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The study examines language dimensions of mathematical word problems and the classification of mathematical word problems according to these dimensions with unsupervised machine learning (ML) techniques. Previous research suggests that the language dimensions are important for mathematical word problems because it has an influence on the…

Alejandro Ramírez-Contreras; Leopoldo Zúñiga-Silva; Ezequiel Ojeda-Gómez – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This paper reports on an exploratory study about probabilistic intuition in learning mathematics for decision-making. The analysis was carried out on a group of high school students in relation to their probabilistic intuition in problem-solving, after performing playful learning activities on a simulation platform specifically designed for this…

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…

Melike Yigit Koyunkaya; Burcak Boz-Yaman – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This study aims to examine the changes in students' mental constructions of function transformation based on the designed activities, classroom discussions, exercises (ACE) teaching cycle in the light of the action, process, object, schema (APOS) theoretical framework. The study was conducted by seven volunteer students who were enrolled in…

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…

Emine Nur Unveren Bilgic; Sahin Danisman – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
The aim of this study is to reveal the profiles of pre-service mathematics teachers in terms of learning and studying approaches by cluster-analyzing them on the basis of self-reinforcing and persistence. Learning and studying approaches inventory scale, self-reinforcing and persistence subscales were used to collect the data in the study, which…

Hartman, JudithAnn R.; Hart, Sarah; Nelson, Eric Alan; Kirschner, Paul A. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
To learn mathematics, historically students had no choice but to memorize fundamental facts and apply memorized algorithms. Since 1995 in the US, all states have adopted standards to govern K-12 mathematics instruction, and in most, standards have de-emphasized memorization and emphasized reasoning based on concepts. This change assumed the brain…

Büscher, Carina; Andresen, Mette Susanne – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Many studies on professionalization research deal with the question of how teachers actually learn or how teacher change occurs. In this context, Clarke and Hollingsworth (2002) describe a model for capturing teacher change in different domains (external, personal, domain of practice and domain of consequence) and how changes in one domain can…

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…

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,…

Rizos, Ioannis; Adam, Maria – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
In this paper, we present parts of an online qualitative research project which lasted a whole semester about the understanding of real numbers by sixty first-year Greek mathematics undergraduate students during the COVID-19 pandemic. We focus on the distinction between rational and irrational numbers and their location on the number line using…
