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…

Anela Hrnjicic; Adis Alihodžic – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2024
Understanding the concepts related to real function is essential in learning mathematics. To determine how students understand these concepts, it is necessary to have an appropriate measurement tool. In this paper, we have created a web application using 32 items from conceptual understanding of real functions (CURF) item bank. We conducted a…

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…

Díaz-Chang, Tamara; Arredondo, Elizabeth-H. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
In this article we address the historical and epistemological study of infinity as a mathematical concept, focusing on identifying difficulties, counter-intuitive ideas and paradoxes that constituted implicit, unconscious models faced by mathematicians at different times in history, representing obstacles in the rigorous formalization process of…

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…

Irene Mauricio Cazorla; Miriam Cardoso Utsumi; Sandra Maria Magina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This article aims to present a first approximation of the conceptual field of measures of central tendency (MCT), grounded in the theory of conceptual fields. We propose six situations according to type of variable, data presentation (raw or grouped) and amount of data. We revisit specific situations for the mean and exemplify several…

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…

Tarim, Kamuran; Tarku, Hakan – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The aim of this study is to determine the distribution of the questions in an 8th grade mathematics textbook in terms of the categories (mathematical content, mathematical literacy contexts, mathematical processes, PISA mathematics proficiency scale levels, and item types) within the PISA mathematics literacy framework. Investigation of the…

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…

Morales Carballo, Armando; Damián Mojica, Angie; Marmolejo Vega, José Efrén – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
A theoretical-didactic proposal based on variational ideas and the use of GeoGebra is described as a response to a local problem on the understanding of the concept of function and quadratic equation in pre-university students. The theoretical elements of this work are based on the understanding of concepts and the theory of semiotic registers and…

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…

Msomi, Alfred Mvunyelwa; Bansilal, Sarah – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Laplace transform (LT) is an essential mathematical tool for solving linear ordinary differential equations (ODE) with boundary values, by transforming differential equation into algebraic equations which are easier to manipulate. In this article, we analyse the errors students make and misconceptions they have in solving linear ODE using LT…

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,…
