Moss, Diana L.; Lamberg, Teruni – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019

This article describes a learning trajectory on expressions and equations based on the sixth-grade Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (NGA/CCSSO, 2010). A classroom teaching experiment using design research (Lamberg & Middleton, 2009) was conducted. The data was analysed using Corbin and Strauss' (2014) Constant Comparative method and…

Toluk-Ucar, Zulbiye; Bozkus, Figen – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018

The purpose of this study was to investigate how prospective elementary school mathematics teachers and elementary school students' ability to distinguish proportional situations from nonproportional situations differ or are alike. Participants of the study were 319 prospective primary and middle school teachers and 320 elementary school students…

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…

Switzer, J. Matt – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016

Research findings have established that students often struggle with mathematical symbols including common misconceptions for literal symbolic representations of variables but provide little evidence of when or how these misconceptions arise. This article reports findings from a study of grade 4-6 students' conception(s) for various…

Çelik, Derya – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

Linear algebra is one of the most challenging topics to learn and teach in many countries. To facilitate the teaching and learning of linear algebra, priority should be given to epistemologically analyze the concepts that the undergraduate students have difficulty in conceptualizing and to define their ways of reasoning in linear algebra. After…

Nyman, Rimma – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

This article presents results from an empirical study of how student engagement is visible during introductory algebra. Previously, the notion of engagement in mathematics has been studied from students' and researchers' perspectives. This study is instead focused on teachers' perspectives on student engagement. Eight teachers in grade 6-7 have…

Erdogan, Abdulkadir – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

Turkish primary mathematics curriculum emphasizes the role of problem solving for teaching mathematics and pays particular attention to problem solving strategies. Patterns as a subject and the use of patterns as a non-routine problem solving strategy are also emphasized in the curriculum. The primary purpose of this study was to determine how…

Furuto, Linda H. L. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

This study comes at an opportune moment for Japanese and U.S. educators, policymakers, and researchers given the trends of global policy and equity-based reform. Discussions of academic achievement in both societies allows us to examine mathematics education as a public good versus private commodity in order to best serve the needs of students.…

Tekin-Sitrava, Reyhan; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

This qualitative study examined middle school students' performance, solution strategies, difficulties and the underlying reasons for their difficulties in calculating the volume of a rectangular prism. The data was collected from 35 middle school students (6th, 7th and 8th grade students) enrolled in a private school in Istanbul, Turkey. The data…

Bautista, Alfredo; Brizuela, Bárbara M.; Glennie, Corinne R.; Caddle, Mary C. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

Professional development (PD) programs often evaluate their impact on teachers' learning by assessing teachers either individually or in groups. The goal of this paper is to illustrate the variety of paths teachers might follow as a result of working in groups within online PD settings. Data are drawn from a PD program for grades 5-9 mathematics…

Lai, Mun Yee; Murray, Sara – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

Mathematics educators have had a long standing interest in students' understanding of decimal numbers. Most studies of students' understanding of decimals have been conducted within Western cultural settings. Similar research in other countries is important for a number of reasons, perhaps most importantly because it can provide insights that may…

Perger, Pamela – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013

Research has shown students can identify practices considered appropriate for achieving when learning mathematics (Kershner & Pointon, 2000; McCullum, Hargreaves & Gripps, 2000). Yet, if you listen to students talking about the practices they consider important to succeed, and then observe the same students working in their mathematics…

White, Diana; Donaldson, Brianna; Hodge, Angie; Ruff, Adam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013

Math Teachers' Circles have been spreading since their emergence in 2006. These professional development programs, aimed primarily at middle-level mathematics teachers (grades 5-9), focus on developing teachers' mathematical problem solving skills, in line with the Common Core State Standards-Standards of Mathematical Practice. Yet, to date,…

Bicknell, Brenda; Hunter, Roberta – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012

Moving from primary school (Year 6) to the next stage in schooling (Year 7 intermediate or middle school) can provide challenges for students, teachers, and parents. A study was carried out to investigate these challenges with a focus on mathematics for 65 students from six different urban primary schools in New Zealand. Qualitative data were…

Graybeal, Christy D. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010

Whether they are acknowledged or not, resources such as textbooks, curriculum guides, assessments, and professional development programs present messages about what is most important for students to learn and how students can best learn this. At times teachers feel obligated to enact these messages, but at other times they feel free to ignore…
