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…

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…

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.…

Anderson-Pence, Katie L.; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.; Westenskow, Arla; Shumway, Jessica; Jordan, Kerry – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

The purpose of this study was to deconstruct the relationship between visual static models and students' written solutions to fraction problems using a large sample of students' solutions. Participants in the study included 162 third-grade and 209 fourth-grade students from 17 different classrooms. Students' written responses to open-ended tasks…
