Pitkäniemi, Harri; Häkkinen, Kaija – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

The objective of our study is to understand and analyse what significance cognitive and emotional networks of classroom processes have in mathematics learning. The subject of the study includes two classrooms from Year 5 of a teacher training school, their pupils (NA=17, NB=19) and student teachers (N=4). The course on decimals, which consisted of…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Lowrie, Tom – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

This paper explores the relationship between social backgrounds and geographical locations with mathematical achievement. Using the national testing system in Australia, correlations between the variables were explored and it was found that students from rural and low SES backgrounds are still being marginalised in school mathematics--in terms of…

Childers, Annie Burns; Vidakovic, Draga – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

This paper explores sixty-six students' personal meaning and interpretation of the vertex of a quadratic function in relation to their understanding of quadratic functions in two different representations, algebraic and word problem. Several categories emerged from students' personal meaning of the vertex including vertex as maximum or minimum…

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…

Hunsader, Patricia D.; Thompson, Denisse R.; Zorin, Barbara – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013

In this paper, we present a framework used to analyze the extent to which assessments (i.e., chapter tests) accompanying three published elementary grades 3-5 curricula in the United States provide students with opportunities to engage with key mathematical processes. The framework uses indicators for five criteria to assess the processes of…

Thompson, Tony – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011

This research provides insight into one US state's effort to incorporate higher-order thinking on its Algebra I End-of-Course tests. To facilitate the inclusion of higher-order thinking, the state used "Dimensions of Thinking" (Marzano et al., 1988) and "Bloom's Taxonomy" (Bloom et al., 1956). An analysis of Algebra I test…

Flesch, Michael; Ostler, Elliott – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011

This paper presents the results of a study focused on the issue of how proctored testing affects the learning outcomes and integrity in an Intermediate Algebra course setting. The study follows a model of assessment where students in one group have taken two of their five unit exams as proctored tests along with a proctored Comprehensive Final…
