Karatas, Ilhan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
Computer technology in mathematics education enabled the students find many opportunities for investigating mathematical relationships, hypothesizing, and making generalizations. These opportunities were provided to pre-service teachers through a faculty course. At the end of the course, the teachers were assigned project tasks involving…

Coppola, Cristina; Mollo, Monica; Pacelli, Tiziana – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
In this paper we explore the relationship between language and developmental processes of logical tools through the analysis at different levels of some "linguistic-manipulative" activities in a primary school classroom. We believe that this kind of activities can spur in the children a reflection and a change in their language…

Awofala, A. O. A.; Balogun, T. A.; Olagunju, M. A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
This study investigated the effects of modes of personalisation of instruction crossed with two levels each of verbal ability and cognitive style as moderator variables on the mathematical word problems achievement of 450 junior secondary Nigerian students. Personalisation was accomplished by incorporating selected information with students'…

Samuelsson, Joakim – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
In this study, we investigated to what extent arithmetic ability and self-regulated learning skills in the beginning of lower secondary school predicts measures of students' performance in mathematics at the end of lower secondary school. Arithmetic ability and self-regulated learning skills were tested the first two weeks in lower secondary…

Tanase, Madalina – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
Researchers (Ball, 2003; Ma, 1999; Schulman, 1986) have long investigated how a teacher's subject matter and pedagogical content knowledge impact on students' learning of mathematics. In an attempt to account for the relationship between teacher knowledge and student learning, this study examined four Romanian first grade teachers' knowledge about…

Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Bosse, Michael J.; Faulconer, Johna – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
The mathematics education community recognizes the integrality of reading and writing in learning and communicating mathematics knowledge. Unfortunately, many students have yet to significantly experience this integrality in their mathematics classrooms despite the power these tools offer teachers for assessing student knowledge. This paper…

Butler, Melanie; Van Lowe, Kelly – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
The article discusses using differentiated instruction in mathematics education for pre-service teachers, including background information and details on a differentiated unit on fractions and integers. In addition, a study was conducted on this lesson and results are included which suggest that students who received the differentiated lesson did…

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…

Richardson, Kerri; Schwartz, Catherine Stein; Reynolds, Anne – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
In this article we discuss an open-ended problem involving quadrilaterals that we continually offer each semester. The task has been posed to undergraduate and graduate students in methods and problem solving classes. The task involves drawing all possible four sided figures with corners at the dots. A four by four array of dots is included in the…

Kovarik, Madeline – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Although mathematics is visual language of symbols and numbers it is also expressed and explained through written and spoken words. For students to excel in mathematics, they must recognize, comprehend and apply the requisite vocabulary. Thus, vocabulary instruction is as critical in content areas as it is in language arts. It is especially…

Nillas, Leah A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Qualitative research methods were employed to investigate characterization of preservice teachers' mathematical understanding. Responses on test items involving algebraic relationships were analyzed using with-in case analysis (Miles and Huberman, 1994) and Pirie and Kieren's (1994) model of growth of mathematical understanding. Five elementary…

Panasuk, Regina M.; Beyranevand, Matthew L. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Learning about linear relationship with one unknown, middle school students may often demonstrate a certain degree of proficiency manipulating algebraic symbols. When encouraged, they can verbalize and explain the steps they perform, thereby demonstrating awareness of the procedures with symbols according to fixed rules. It is well known that…

Yeo, Joseph B. W.; Yeap, Ban Har – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Many educators believe that mathematical investigation involves both problem posing and problem solving, but some teachers have taught their students to investigate during problem solving. The confusion about the relationship between investigation and problem solving may affect how teachers teach their students and how researchers conduct their…

Namukasa, Immaculate K.; Gadanidis, George – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
In what unique ways can mathematics tasks contribute to pre-service teachers' understanding of subject matter and pedagogy? And what school mathematics tasks can usefully be included in a pre-service program? To contribute to answering these questions, we report on the selection and choice criteria for mathematics tasks that we use in an…

Skoumpourdi, Chrysanthi – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
The aim of this paper is to investigate the ways in which the number line can function in solving mathematical tasks by first graders (6 year olds). The main research question was whether the number line functioned as an auxiliary means or as an obstacle for these students. Through analysis of the 32 students' answers it appears that the number…
