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…

Özaltun Çelik, Aytug; Bukova Güzel, Esra – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018

The aim of this study is to explain how to shape the lesson study designed for improving mathematics teachers' knowledge of student thinking and to uncover the evidences of the mathematics teachers' knowledge of student thinking in their lessons. The lesson study composed of three cycles with five stages was carried out with three mathematics…

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…

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…

Nivera, Gladys C. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017

A mathematical investigation (MI) encapsulates the reform movement in mathematics education by addressing content and process simultaneously and providing a novel opportunity for students to develop thinking skills and good mental habits. However, introducing MI to teachers and students who are used to routinised teaching approaches and…

Daher, Wajeeh; Anabousy, Ahlam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

The study of function transformations helps students understand the function concept which is a basic and main concept in mathematics, but this study is problematic to school students as well as college students, especially when transformations are performed on non-basic functions. The current research tried to facilitate grade 9 students'…

Brendefur, Jonathan L.; Hughes, Gwyneth; Ely, Robert – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

In this article we examine how secondary school students think about functional relationships. More specifically, we examined seven students' intuitive knowledge in regards to representing two real-world situations with functions. We found students do not tend to represent functional relationships with coordinate graphs even though they are able…

Brendefur, Jonathan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

Much research has been conducted on how elementary students develop mathematical understanding and subsequently how teachers might use this information. This article builds on this type of work by investigating how one high-school algebra teacher designs and conducts a lesson on exponential functions. Through a lesson study format she studies with…

Bicer, Ali; Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary M. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] noted that middle and high school students are expected to be able to both explain inequalities by using mathematical symbols and understand meanings by interpreting the solutions of inequalities. Unfortunately, research has revealed that not only do middle and high school students hold…

Bossé, Michael J.; Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Chandler, Kayla – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

Understanding how students translate between mathematical representations is of both practical and theoretical importance. This study examined students' processes in their generation of symbolic and graphic representations of given polynomial functions. The purpose was to investigate how students perform these translations. The result of the study…

Wachira, Patrick; Pourdavood, Roland G.; Skitzki, Raymond – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013

Recent mathematics education reform calls for efforts to create collaborative and student-centered environments, where students have opportunities to reason and construct their understanding as part of a community of learners. Mathematics instruction should provide students opportunities to engage in mathematical inquiry and meaning making through…

Lavy, Ilana; Zarfin, Orly – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013

In this study we explored the effects of providing ninth-grade students with the chance to take part in decision making concerning the mathematics level they would be assigned to in high school. Decisions concerned their self-competence regarding their mathematical abilities, their learning goals and the class atmosphere. The students were taught…

Sokolowski, Andrzej – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012

This paper integrates technology, in the form of a physics simulation; science concepts, via image formation by lenses; and a mathematics apparatus, in the form of rational functions. All constituents merge into an instructional unit that can be embedded into a high school or undergraduate mathematics or physics course. The cognitive purpose of…

Muir, Tracey – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012

Parental involvement in the form of "at-home" interest and support has a major influence on pupils' educational outcomes and attitudes. Many parents, however, feel uninformed about current educational practices and how they can be more involved with their child's learning. A number of initiatives have been implemented internationally to…

Stout, Terra; Dwyer, Jerry; Wilhelm, Jennifer – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011

Proofs were introduced to high school students by a college mathematician. Student interest and knowledge level were assessed through pre and post tests. There was a significant gain in student knowledge but not in interest. Student learning of proof concepts was clearly displayed, while common errors were often related to lack of algebra skills.…
