Yao, Xiangquan; Elia, John – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Mathematical generalization can take on different forms and be built upon different types of reasoning. Having utilized data from a series of task-based interviews, this study examined connections between empirical and structural reasoning as preservice mathematics teachers solved problems designed to engage them in constructing and generalizing…

Guler, Mustafa; Celik, Derya – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Effective teachers have knowledge not only of the subject they are teaching, but also of how to teach it appropriately. To develop these aspects of knowledge, faculties of education include a number of courses that address the related skills. From the perspective of mathematics teacher education, courses related to mathematics teaching have come…

Namukasa, Immaculate Kizito; Aryee, Kinful Lartebea – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Teacher knowledge needed for teaching is widely studied to characterize its key categories. We report findings from a study on teachers' knowledge for mathematics in the Montessori schools. In Montessori accredited schools, teachers learn to teach mathematics in ways different from the teachers themselves experienced in non-Montessori schools. We…

Bevan, Danielle; Capraro, Mary Margaret – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Posing problems in the mathematics classroom can enhance students' learning experiences and allow them to produce problems in a realistic context. Students do not always associate positive feelings with mathematics. Problem-posing activities can positively impact students' mathematical understanding while allowing for freedom of expression.…

Maknun, Churun Lu'lu'il; Rosjanuardi, Rizky; Jupri, Al – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
A Trigonometric function is one of the challenging materials for not only high school students but also pre-service teachers and teachers. On the other hand, An understanding of trigonometric function is an initial stage in understanding calculus derived from it such as limit, derivative, and integral. Thus, the competency in trigonometric…

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.,…

Luitel, Laxman – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The school mathematics curriculum development process in Nepal is still conventional. Contextualized mathematics teaching and learning has not been the priority of school education of Nepal. Majority of the school mathematics teachers in Nepal still conceptualize the mathematics and mathematics curriculum from the conformist approach. Thus, this…

Hurst, Chris; Hurrell, Derek – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Multiplicative thinking is widely accepted as a critically important 'big idea' of mathematics that underpins much mathematical understanding beyond the primary years. It is therefore important to ensure not only that children can think multiplicatively, but that they can do so at a conceptual rather than procedural level. This paper reports on a…
