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…

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…

Toh, Tin Lam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This paper reports the performance of one entire cohort of Singapore prospective secondary school mathematics teachers in a mathematics proficiency test. The prospective teachers were admitted to the teacher education program specializing in teaching secondary school mathematics. The strengths of the prospective teachers' content knowledge, their…

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…

Accurso, Kathryn; Gebhard, Meg; Purington, Stephanie B. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This article analyses the experiences of 55 secondary pre-service teachers (PSTs) in a mandated professional development course that used Halliday's systemic functional linguistics (SFL) and related pedagogical practices to support PSTs' development of disciplinary linguistic knowledge for working with linguistically diverse students in the United…

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…
