MacDonald, Amy; Murphy, Steve – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
Time is an essential construct for understanding our everyday lives and the wider world; however, it is commonly seen as a difficult topic by teachers and children throughout primary school. There is limited research into children's learning about time, and in particular, concerning young children's understandings of clocks. This study examines…

Ulusoy, Fadime; Incikabi, Lütfi – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
This study investigates how a sample of middle school mathematics teachers interpret and use compulsory textbooks in the Turkish classroom context based on their: (i) purposes of using textbooks; (ii) frequency and duration of using textbooks; (iii) approaches to using textbooks; and (iv) preferences concerning an ideal mathematics textbook. The…

Poling, Lisa Lanette – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
Based on the novel framework of Academic Agency, this study explored how a teacher's sense of efficacy, commitment, and knowledge influenced their overall sense of responsibility in instructing all children in the science of mathematics. This study employed a two-phase data collection process in which surveys, classroom interviews, and…

Tekin-Sitrava, Reyhan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
Although students' nonstandard strategies have great importance in understanding students' thinking and creating effective mathematics classrooms, much remains unexplored in the literature. This study investigated 22 middle school teachers' reasoning about a student's nonstandard strategy for the division of fractions. The data were collected…

Simsek, Zulfiye Zeybek – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
This study focused on investigating the ability of 58 pre-service mathematics teachers (PSMTs) to construct-evaluate-refine mathematical conjectures and proofs. The PSMTs enrolled in a three-credit mathematics education course that offered various opportunities to engage with mathematical activities including constructing-evaluating-refining…

Whitaker, Douglas – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
Education research has established that teachers' beliefs matter because they can affect classroom practices and student outcomes, and beliefs are viewed as an important construct within statistics education. However, relatively little research about the beliefs of in-service statistics teachers has been conducted. Additionally, little research…

Bossé, Michael J.; Young, Erica Slate; Bayaga, Anass; Lynch-Davis, Kathleen; DeMarte, Ashley M.; Fountain, Catherine – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
While one branch of literature is replete with investigations of problem solving and another branch frequently investigates student use of dynamic mathematics environments (DMEs), most of the studies in both of these fields consider whether or not students can solve problems. Far fewer number of studies consider the cognitive processes associated…

Genc, Murat; Erbas, Ayhan Kursat – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
The purpose of this study was to investigate secondary mathematics teachers' conceptions of the barriers to the development of mathematical literacy. The data were collected through semi-structured interviews with sixteen in-service mathematics teachers from nine secondary schools of five different school types. The data analysis consisted of an…

Bossé, Michael J.; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Young, Erica Slate – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
This study investigates representational code-switching (RCS) by considering three high school students' communications in the process of comparing and contrasting pairs of representations (e.g., equation and graph) in the context of rational functions. Supporting this study is research in the realms of students interacting with mathematical…

Muir, Tracey – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The concept of flipping the classroom and flipped learning is becoming increasingly more popular in secondary schools. Although more prevalent in tertiary teaching, flipped learning has a number of affordances that may address the challenging demands of teaching secondary mathematics. While enactments of the approach vary, flipped learning…

Krajcevski, Milé; Sears, Ruthmae – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
In this paper, we demonstrate how atypical visual representations of a triangle, square or a parallelogram may hinder students' understanding of a median and altitude. We analyze responses and reasoning given by 16 preservice middle school teachers in a Geometry Connection class. Particularly, the data were garnered from three specific questions…

Ortiz, Enrique; Eisenreich, Heidi A.; Tapp, Laura E. K. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The goal of this study is to analyze undergraduate elementary school pre-service teachers' conceptions and misconceptions of physical and virtual manipulative materials using an interpretive "framework." The "framework" involved the use of the "Concrete," "Pictorial" and "Abstract cognitive levels"…
