Soysal, Dilek; Bani-Yaghoub, Majid; Riggers-Piehl, Tiffani A. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
The current COVID-19 pandemic has largely impacted the academic performance of several college students. The present study is concerned with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on students pursuing a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) degree. We collected weekly survey data (w=9) of students (n=53) taking calculus courses…

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…

Lopes, Aldo Peres Campos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
This study addresses three aspects of the attitude towards mathematics: usefulness, interest, and recognition of the social roles of mathematics. Mathematical modeling activities were developed and conducted with engineering students. We analyzed how the attitude towards mathematics is manifested in this context and what contribution can be to a…

Hurdle, Zachariah Benton; Akbuga, Enes; Schrader, Paul – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2022
This study focuses on the analysis of certain performance predictors for calculus I. We collected data from 717 students from 2013 through 2018 at a southeastern university in the United States to explore any correlation between course times (particularly very early versus the rest) and student performance in this specific course, along with a…

Can, Cihan; Clark, Kathleen Michelle – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
For several decades, literature on the history and pedagogy of mathematics has described how history of mathematics is beneficial for the teaching and learning of mathematics. We investigated the influence of a history and philosophy of mathematics (HPhM) course on students' progress through the lens of various competencies in mathematics (e.g.,…
