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…

Kiliç, Çigdem – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
In that current study, pattern conversion ability of 25 pre-service mathematics teachers (producing figural patterns following number patterns) was investigated. During the study participants were asked to generate figural patterns based on those number patterns. The results of the study indicate that many participants could generate different…

Cullen, Amanda L.; Tobias, Jennifer M.; Safak, Elif; Kirwan, J. Vince; Wessman-Enzinger, Nicole M.; Wickstrom, Megan H.; Baek, Jae M. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
Previous research on preservice teachers' understanding of fractions and algebra has focused on one or the other. To extend this research, we examined 85 undergraduate elementary education majors and middle school mathematics education majors' solutions and solution paths (i.e., the ways or methods in which preservice teachers solve word problems)…

Sarac, Ayse; Aslan-Tutak, Fatma – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between teacher efficacy to student trigonometry self-efficacy and student trigonometry achievement. The study included 16 high school teachers and their tenth grade students (n = 571). Teacher efficacy was studied in terms of general teaching efficacy, mathematics teaching…

Bobos, Georgeana; Sierpinska, Anna – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
In this paper, we present a design experiment in a "Teaching Mathematics" course for prospective elementary teachers where we sought to develop a "measurement approach" to fractions. We focus on the conceptualization of the mathematical content of the approach. We attribute our progress in the conceptualization to our efforts…

Mellone, Maria; Tortora, Roberto – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
We present a design study developed in an Italian school. Taking inspiration from the work of the Russian psychologist V. V. Davydov, we have reformulated some activities of his curriculum for the first grade, in order to adapt them to a didactic project for a fifth grade class. In the paper we firstly expose our theoretical assumptions and the…

Polotskaia, Elena – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The main goal of this paper is to show how Vasily Davydov's powerful ideas about the nature of mathematical thinking and learning can transform the teaching and learning of additive word problem solving. The name Vasily Davydov is well known in the field of mathematics education in Russia. However, the transformative value of Davydov's theoretical…

Eriksson, Inger; Jansson, Anders – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The issue of this article is to identify and discuss what conditions may be necessary to build into tasks to make it likely for students to be involved in an algebraic Learning Activity inspired by Davydov. Data from a pilot study was used in which a group of students (N = 28) in grade 1 (7-year-olds) were invited to participate in discussions and…

Venenciano, Linda – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
In this study we explore possible long-term effects of an adaptation of the El'konin­-Davydov elementary grades curriculum, Measure Up or MU. The objectives for the study are to assess how students relate an equation of nonnumeric quantities to a length representation, and if former MU students develop and retain a perspective characteristic of…

Fellus, Osnat; Biton, Yaniv – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
That mathematics education has been one of the central concerns of educational systems worldwide is no secret. It is also an established consensus that as far back as eighty years ago, Russian psychologists such as Vygotsky, Luria, Meshcheryakov, and Davydov have pioneered work that contributed to the understanding of teaching and learning and…

Whitehead, Ashley; Walkowiak, Temple A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This study examined preservice elementary teachers' change in their understanding of fraction operations while taking a mathematics methods course focused on grades 3-5. The preservice teachers (n = 48) completed an assessment before and after the course's unit on the teaching and learning of fractions. Specifically, the preservice teachers were…

O'Keeffe, Lisa; White, Bruce – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The role and function of the mathematics textbook has been widely discussed since its inclusion in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science study (TIMSS) in the late nineties. It is a common feature in many classrooms worldwide and has been identified as an important vehicle for the promotion of curricula. However, there has also been…
