da Fonseca, Vilmar Gomes; Henriques, Ana Cláudia Correia Batalha – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The literature emphasizes the interest and need to learn the concept of continuity with understanding, although this meaning it is not consensual nor specified how it may emerge and be developed in the learning process. In this paper we report the results of a study aiming to analyse Brazilian preservice mathematics teachers' understanding of the…

Ja'faruddin; Upu, Hamzah; Wen-Haw, Chen; Teng, Daniel Chia-En – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
This study compares two hypnoteaching models used to teach students mathematics. Due to the increase in the use of these models, further vigorous studies are needed to verify their effects. This is a quasi-experiment research conducted to compare the use of the hypnoteaching model using three classes of students. The first, second, and third…

Youkap, Patrick Tchonang; Ngansop, Judith Njomgang; Tieudjo, Daniel; Pedemonte, Bettina – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of this article is to better understand how proof is introduced into the study of quadrilaterals and triangles in high school. To do this, we designed a grid to analyse mathematics textbooks in Cameroon francophone subsystems (7th Grade and 8th Grade). The Anthropological Theory of Didactics and the paradigms in geometry served as a…

Akkus, Recai; Karakaya, Melisa – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Researchers have approached to teacher change in different ways: as a learner, as a teacher, and as a colleague. This study aims to analyze teachers' pedagogical changes within the professionally collaborated training program supported with on-the-job visits in their teaching environments. Five elementary mathematics teachers were involved in the…

Velazco, Derling Jose Mendoza; Martinez, Magda Francisca Cejas; Yanez, Carlos Alban; Ortega, Yanet Marisol – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
To prevent difficulties in learning mathematics, effective and innovative teaching methodologies should be used. The present study presents the results of a relational and comparative study between the application of the open number-based algorithm (ABN) and the closed number-based algorithm (CNB) method. The research was of a descriptive…

Kapofu, Lifeas Kudakwashe; Kapofu, Winfilda – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Integration of history of mathematics (HOM) in mathematics education is emerging as frontier endowed with utility to stem decline in uptake, enhance performance and alter the negative perceptions about the subject. This case study sought to explore the influence of history of mathematics on grade eleven girls' perceptions of the Theorem of…

Arnal-Palacián, Mónica; Claros-Mellado, Javier; Sánchez-Compaña, María Teresa – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
In this document, we search for and define an infinite limit of sequences that is correct and accepted by the mathematical experts, the final purpose of which is to analyze its phenomenology, in Freudenthal's sense. To make the choice, experts were consulted on two issues. The first one was not decisive because of the effect that the divergence…

Mazana, Mzomwe Yahya; Montero, Calkin Suero; Casmir, Respickius Olifage – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
One of the aims of teaching and learning mathematics is to encourage and enable learners to become confident in using mathematics to analyze and solve practical problems in real-life situations. However, while a few students prosper in learning of mathematics, many students find it difficult and ultimately fail the subject. This study analyses…

Alghadari, Fiki; Herman, Tatang; Prabawanto, Sufyani – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Geometry mastery is a must for high school students, affected by several factors such as learning approach (LA), gender, level of basic geometry competencies (BGC) and level of mathematical self-efficacy (MSE) among others. The purpose of this study is to examine those factors that affect the geometry problem solving (GPS) abilities of the…

Choy, Ban Heng; Lee, Mi Yeon; Mizzi, Angel – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
Textbooks, which form the staples of a teacher's set of resources, play a critical role in deciding what and how mathematics is taught in classrooms. However, textbooks do not always present concepts in ways that enhance understanding by students, nor are they always comprehensive in the treatment of a topic. In this exploratory study, we analyse…
