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…

Brewster, Barbara Jane; Miller, Tess – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
Competency in mathematics is needed to respond to the vast employment opportunities available in the STEM sectors. These employment opportunities all require basic foundational mathematics skills, yet there is a shortfall of mathematics abilities due, in-part, to mathematics anxiety. Mathematics anxiety can surface as fear and avoidance of…

Ozdemir Baki, Gulsah; Kilicoglu, Elif – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2023
This paper examined how teachers' noticing skill affects the social and socio-mathematical norms they construct in the classroom. The study was carried out with four mathematics teachers working at a secondary school in the eastern regions of Turkey. A case study among qualitative research methods was used. The data of the research were collected…

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…

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…

Nurnberger-Haag, Julie; Kratky, Joseph; Karpinski, Aryn C. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Skills and understanding of operations with negative numbers, which are typically taught in middle school, are crucial aspects of numerical competence necessary for all subsequent mathematics. To more swiftly and coherently develop the field's understanding of how to foster this critical competence, we need shared measures that allow us to compare…

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…

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…

Joshua, Surani; Lee, Mi Yeon – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
In this study we investigated pre-service teachers' (PSTs) proportional reasoning and how they interpret their calculations in proportional tasks. We administered a written questionnaire to 199 PSTs and used an inductive content analysis approach for data analysis. We found that one item, in which PSTs were asked to interpret the meaning of the…

Kosko, Karl W. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Professional teacher noticing is a key skill in preparing future elementary mathematics teachers, with the goal of increasing the specificity and sophistication of noticing children's mathematical reasoning. One common effort scholars have engaged to improve teachers' professional noticing is to improve the quality of representation. Recently,…

Gunes, Gonul – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
This study intends to review the operational estimation skills of pre-service primary school teachers, and to see if they are able to use the correct strategy when making estimates. For this purpose, the "estimation skills test" comprised of 41 questions allowing estimates using 14 distinct estimation strategies was used. 209 pre-service…

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…

Brewster, Barbara Jane; Miller, Tess – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
Many pre-service teachers suffer from mathematics anxiety, which hinders their mathematics learning. This can cause a deficit in their mathematics content knowledge, which must be addressed to become effective mathematics teachers. The present study explored whether positive expressive writing was better at mitigating pre-service teachers'…

Lenz, Katja; Wittmann, Gerald – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
There is a general consensus that both conceptual and procedural knowledge are essential for students' mathematical development. A common argument is that differences in mathematical performance are caused by differences in conceptual and procedural knowledge. Therefore, it is important to investigate to what extent such differences in conceptual…

García-Perales, Ramón; Palomares-Ruiz, Ascensión; Cebrián-Martínez, Antonio; López-Parra, Emilio – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
This study focuses on the child adaptation processes of a group of 22 students who were identified in academic year 2011/12 as having high mathematical ability. The subjects' schooling and adaptation were tracked over six school years, with a specific psycho-pedagogical evaluation test in the final year to assess their adaptation via various…
