Bossé, Michael J.; Ringler, Marjorie Campo; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Young, Erica Slate – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Research in second language acquisition and the learning of mathematics has matured through long, albeit disconnected, histories. This study examines how theories and models of second language acquisition can be applied to the learning of mathematics and, through this, develops a novel framework defining stages in the learning of mathematics. This…

Haara, Frode Olav – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Emphasis on the development of the inner qualities thought to make up pedagogical entrepreneurship and use of such entrepreneurship as a strategy in mathematics teaching and learning could be expected to strengthen students' development of mathematical literacy. This is because problem solving, local cultures and resources, authenticity and action…

Kim, Hyung Won – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Research demonstrates a disjuncture between the practices encouraged by teacher education programs and what teachers actually do in the classroom. It also informs us that the cognitive and social characteristics of individual teachers such as their attitudes, beliefs and knowledge contribute to their classroom practices. This qualitative study…

Forsythe, Susan K. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
This paper describes how a dynamic figure was used as the basis for a task designed to support students in developing the hierarchical classification of the kites and their subsets. Following on from a previous study using the task with pairs of students, I describe how I embedded the task into a pedagogical sequence of activities, which included…

Shumway, Jessica F.; Jordan, Kerry E. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
The purpose of this study was to explore the variations in students' achievement on computational fluency assessments and variations in strategies for solving computation problems. Computational fluency was defined as a student's ability to compute flexibly, accurately, efficiently, and appropriately. Seven- and eight-year-old students completed…

Hurst, Chris; Huntley, Ray – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Multiplicative thinking is a critical component of mathematics which largely determines the extent to which people develop mathematical understanding beyond middle primary years. We contend that there are several major issues, one being that much teaching about multiplicative ideas is focussed on algorithms and procedures. An associated issue is…

Karakus, Fatih – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Although the topic of division by zero has been widely discussed in the literature, this subject is still confusing for students, pre-service teachers and teachers. Because of this, teachers at various grade levels may encounter difficulties in conveying the concept to their students. Therefore, in order to provide students with a strong…

Tularam, Gurudeo A.; Machisella, Patrick – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Traditional teaching approaches are generally teacher-directed, where students are taught in a manner that is conducive to sitting and listening. It is often argued that these approaches may not provide students with valuable learning skills, and rather that non-traditional approaches to teaching and learning might better endow students with such…

Kabar, Makbule Gözde Didis – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
In recent years, researchers have become more interested in quadratic equations. This study explores the conceptions high school students have concerning quadratic equations with one unknown, while using concept definition and images as theoretical framework. The data was gathered through semi-structured interviews with 14 eleventh grade high…

Aydin, Utkun – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
The study examined differences in students' conceptual and procedural knowledge of angles among two grades and gender. Participants were 382 sixth and 376 seventh graders from a metropolitan city in Turkey. Turkish students' conceptual and procedural knowledge of angles declined from sixth to seventh grade. Gender differences were found for…

Jobrack, Matthew; Bossé, Michael J.; Chandler, Kayla; Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Student problem solving in the context of a dynamic mathematics environment (DME) has previously been investigated primarily through the lens of whether or not the student could complete a problem-solving task. Herein, we investigate what trajectories students employ in the realms of mathematics, technology, and problem solving as they attempt to…

Coskun, Sumeyra Dogan; Bostan, Mine Isiksal – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
The purpose of this paper is to investigate a novice primary teacher's mathematical knowledge in teaching on area measurement. Data were collected from a novice primary teacher of fourteen students in a primary school located in Ankara, Turkey using field notes, video recordings of lessons, and audio recordings of interviews before and after her…

Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The study investigates the mathematical and the pedagogical content knowledge among in-service and pre-service first- and second-grade mathematics teachers. The sample of 300 subjects consisted of 150 first- and second-grade in-service teachers and 150 pre-service teachers studying in a college of education, 75 of whom were first-year students and…
