Fahlgren, Maria – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper examines the process of instrumental genesis through which students develop their proficiency in making use of movable points and slider bars--two tools that dynamic mathematics software provides for working with variable coordinates and parameters in the field of functions. The paper analyses students' responses to task sequences…

Marmolejo Rivas, Eugenia – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper, we focus our discussion on the strategy we follow to scaffold high school students to successfully build models of a real-life system. Our aim is for students to gradually achieve a higher level of autonomy and to use and further develop their mathematical knowledge. We present work students did when we asked them to build a model…

Pihlap, Sirje – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
Studies of the impact of various types of computer use on the results of learning and student motivation have indicated that the use of computers can increase learning motivation, and that computers can have a positive effect, a negative effect, or no effect at all on learning outcomes. Some results indicate that it is not computer use itself that…

López-García, Jeanett; Jiménez Zamudio, Jorge Javier – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
It is very common to find in contemporary literature of Differential Equations, the need to incorporate holistically in teaching and learning the three different approaches: analytical, qualitative, and numerical, for continuous dynamical systems. However, nowadays, in some Bachelor of Science that includes only one course in differential…

Méndez-Fragoso, Ricardo; Villavicencio-Torres, Mirna; Martínez-Moreno, Josué – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
In this contribution, we show the practical use of the computer to visualise simple computational simulations to show phenomena that occur in everyday life, or require an abstract understanding for being unintuitive phenomena. The relationship of the mathematics to different scientific disciplines motivates us to devise different treatments to…

Martínez-Hernández, Cesar; Ulloa-Azpeitia, Ricardo – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
Based on the theoretical elements of the instrumental approach to tool use known as Task-Technique-Theory (Artigue, 2002), this paper analyses and discusses the performance of graduate students enrolled in a Teacher Training program. The latter performance relates to tracing tangent lines to the curve of a quadratic function in Dynamic Geometry…

Elizondo-Ramírez, Rubén; Hernández-Solís, Armando – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper, we document the results of the implementation of a series of activities related to an optimisation problem. The objective is describing how the construction of mathematical meanings is promoted when the students face the problem through different representations. The activities, addressed towards 15 year old students, surge from a…

de la Villa, Agustín; García, Alfonsa; García, Francisco; Rodríguez, Gerardo – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2017
A personal overview about the use of new technologies for teaching and learning mathematics is given in this paper. We analyse the introduction of Computer Algebra Systems with learning purposes, reviewing different frameworks and didactical resources, some of them generated according the philosophy of the European Area of Higher Education.…

Tobin, Patrick C.; Weiss, Vida – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2016
The use of handheld CAS technology in undergraduate mathematics courses in Australia is paradoxically shrinking under sustained disapproval or disdain from the professional mathematics community. Mathematics education specialists argue with their mathematics colleagues over a range of issues in course development and this use of CAS or even…

Martin, Christie S.; Polly, Drew; Wang, Chuang; Lambert, Richard G.; Pugalee, David K. – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2016
This study examined the influence of professional development on elementary school teachers' perceptions of and use of an internet-based formative assessment tool focused on students' number sense skills. Data sources include teacher-participants' pre and post survey, open ended response on post survey, use of the assessment tool and their written…

Prieto-Rodriguez, Elena – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2016
This paper reports on a component of a study which aims to determine how ICT, and in particular some of the technology funded as part of Australian government's DER (Digital Education Revolution) program, is used by teachers in the state of New South Wales. The study looks in particular at whether technology is used to incorporate real-world…

Li, Qing; Vandermeiden, Elise; Lemieux, Collette; Nathoo, Shahista – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2016
This study explored secondary students' learning experiences in mathematics through digital game building. In this study, students were asked to become designers and builders in order to coauthor their own mathematics learning. Grounded in enactivism, this study examined the impact of game building on students' achievement. In addition, it…

Quinlan, James – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2016
In this study, we examine mathematicians' perspectives of the utility of software in mathematics and the teaching of mathematics. In particular, we report findings from a survey questioning 422 mathematicians with respect to their beliefs regarding the usefulness of software in mathematics research, teaching, and learning; recommended software…
