Tekin-Sitrava, Reyhan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2020
Although students' nonstandard strategies have great importance in understanding students' thinking and creating effective mathematics classrooms, much remains unexplored in the literature. This study investigated 22 middle school teachers' reasoning about a student's nonstandard strategy for the division of fractions. The data were collected…

Weingberg, Paul Jason – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
This study examines in-service teacher development around a pedagogical practice central to teaching and learning in mathematics education, "leading a classroom discussion." This practice is used as an artifact to support the development of a teacher's professional community. This work views making teaching practices public as central to…

Uygun, Tugba – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The purpose of the current article is to test and revise the hypothetical learning trajectory designed for teaching quadrilaterals by reporting the classroom mathematical practices emerged in a social learning environment developing preservice middle school mathematics teachers' understanding of quadrilaterals. Ten preservice teachers participated…

Özçakir, Bilal; Çakiroglu, Erdinç – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of mathematics instruction supported by dynamic geometry activities on seventh grade students' achievements in the area of quadrilaterals, based on their van Hiele geometric thinking levels. The study followed a nonrandomized control group pretest and posttest research design. Participants of…

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…

Özgen, Kemal; Aydin, Mehmet; Geçic, Mehmet Ertürk; Bayram, Baran – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate eighth grade students' skills in different problem-posing situations. Problem-posing situations include free, semi-structured and structured problem-posing situations. The study was conducted using case study methodology, which is within the scope of descriptive research. The study was conducted with…

Krajcevski, Milé; Sears, Ruthmae – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
In this paper, we demonstrate how atypical visual representations of a triangle, square or a parallelogram may hinder students' understanding of a median and altitude. We analyze responses and reasoning given by 16 preservice middle school teachers in a Geometry Connection class. Particularly, the data were garnered from three specific questions…

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…

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)…

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…

Acar Güvendir, Meltem – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
This study focused on the extrinsic and intrinsic motivation levels of eighth grade students and its relationship with their mathematical achievement. The participants of the study included 6,829 students who took TIMSS in 2011 and 239 mathematics teachers. The data obtained from the student and teacher questionnaires that are included in 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…
