Sari, Mehmet Hayri; Herzog, Moritz; Olkun, Sinan; Fritz, Annemarie – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Research has shown that a profound place value understanding is crucial for success in learning mathematics. At the same time, a substantial number of students struggles with developing a sustainable place value understanding. In this regard, two aspects of the place value system appear especially relevant: First, the knowledge of the decimal…

Otten, Samuel; Wambua, Mitchelle M.; Govender, Rajendran – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Reasoning-and-proving is a crucial part of students' mathematical experiences in secondary school. There is scholarly debate, however, on the extent to which proving at the secondary level needs to be formal and whether all students should be held to disciplinary standards of rigor. In this study, we investigated the notion of "proof for…

De Vittori, Thomas – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Based on an experiment carried out with 10- to 11-year-old pupils, this paper questions the place of imagination in a class activity using the history of mathematics. The study focuses on three groups of pupils who were offered three variants of the same activity based on base-60 counting (our time measurement system inherited from the…

Svensson, Christina; Holmqvist, Mona – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
The aim of this study is to explore pre-service teachers' procedural and conceptual understanding of pupils' understanding of mean value, before and after an intervention. Participants are 66 pre-service teachers, and two teacher educators. The data consists of five video-recorded lessons and pre-service teachers' pre- and post-test discussions.…

Büscher, Christian – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Teachers do not directly implement new teaching materials, but rather adapt them. For changing teaching practice, research requires more insights into these adaptions. This study draws on the Theory of Instrumental Genesis to describe the ways teachers adopt the percentage bar model to create different learning opportunities. The results of the…

Villa, Estelita Arellano; Sebastian, Mildred Arellano – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Several researchers have investigated different factors which are found responsible for students' mathematics achievement. This study examined achievement motivation, locus of control and study habits as predictors of mathematics achievement of freshman students taking non-board examination programs at a certain state university in Southern Luzon,…

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…

Nurnberger-Haag, Julie; Singh, Rashmi; Wernet, Jamie L. W.; Alexander, Anita N. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Some goals of mathematics teacher education include ensuring that pre-service teachers (PSTs) have strong content knowledge, the skill to anticipate and interpret student thinking, the ability to plan how to respond, and the ability to critically select resources for instruction. These goals are especially challenging for the topic of geometric…

Nisawa, Yoshiki – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
According to the Programme for International Student Assessment, functions constitute an important part of mathematical literacy. In Japan, students start learning about bivariate relationships in the fourth grade (at the age of 9). However, reports suggest that elementary school students and lower-level secondary school (junior high) students…

Watanabe, Nobuki – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
Conservation and executive function (EF) are important early childhood skills; however, knowledge about their relationship is scarce. Hence, in this study, this relationship is investigated, and a comparison is conducted between the Piagetian conservation and EF tasks to obtain the total hemoglobin (mMmm) for the left and right brain activity in…

Marzocchi, Alison S.; Druken, Bridget K.; Brye, Michelle V. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2021
This paper reports on a semester-long co-teaching investigation in which three mathematics teacher educators in the USA themselves enacted a co-plan/co-teach credentialing model in the context of a mathematics content course for future elementary teachers. The mathematics teacher educators sought to examine the co-planning practices for improving…
