Yilmaz, Rezan; Argun, Ziya – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
Mathematical abstraction is an important process in mathematical thinking. Also, visualization is a strong tool for searching mathematical problems, giving meaning to mathematical concepts and the relationships between them. In this paper, we aim to investigate the role of visualizations in mathematical abstraction through a case study on five…

Hodgson, Theodore R.; Cunningham, Abby; McGee, Daniel; Kinne, Lenore J.; Murphy, Teri J. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
There is a growing evidence that flipped classrooms are associated with increased levels of student engagement, as compared to engagement in "traditional" settings. Much of this research, however, occurs in post-secondary classrooms and is based upon self-reported engagement data. This study seeks to extend existing flipped classroom…

Aydogan Yenmez, Arzu; Erbas, Ayhan Kursat; Alacaci, Cengiz; Cakiroglu, Erdinc; Cetinkaya, Bulent – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Use of mathematical modeling in mathematics education has been receiving significant attention as a way to develop students' mathematical knowledge and skills. As effective use of modeling in classes depends on the competencies of teachers we need to know more about the nature of teachers' knowledge to use modeling in mathematics education and how…

Akayuure, Peter; Asiedu-Addo, S. K.; Alebna, Victor – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Whereas origami is said to have pedagogical benefits in geometry education, research is inclusive about its effect on spatial ability and geometric knowledge among preservice teachers. The study investigated the effect of origami instruction on these aspects using pretest posttest quasi-experiment design. The experimental group consisted of 52…

Barlow, Angela T.; Huang, Rongjin; Law, Huk-Yuen; Chan, Yip Cheung; Zhang, Qiaoping; Baxter, Wesley A.; Gaddy, Angeline K. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Mathematical disagreements occur when students challenge each other's ideas related to a mathematical concept. In this research, we examined Hong Kong and U.S. elementary teachers' perceptions of mathematical disagreements and their resolutions using a video-stimulated survey. Participants were directed to give particular attention to the…

Akaygun, Sevil; Aslan-Tutak, Fatma – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has been an integral part of many countries' educational policies. In last decade, various practices have been implemented to make STEM areas valuable for 21st century generation. These actions require reconsideration of both pre- and in-service teacher education because those who…

Girit, Dilek; Akyuz, Didem – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Studies reveal that students as well as teachers have difficulties in understanding and learning of decimals. The purpose of this study is to investigate students' as well as pre-service teachers' solution strategies when solving a question that involves an estimation task for the value of a decimal number on the number line. We also examined the…

Yilmaz, Suha; Tekin-Dede, Ayse – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2016
Mathematization competency is considered in the field as the focus of modelling process. Considering the various definitions, the components of the mathematization competency are determined as identifying assumptions, identifying variables based on the assumptions and constructing mathematical model/s based on the relations among identified…

Baron, Lorraine M. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Given the minimal impact in the classroom from the implementation of reform movements internationally, the question remains how researchers and teacher educators can address the learning needs of secondary mathematics teachers. The goal was to implement research that was focused on providing an empowering space for the advancement of teachers'…

Holm, Jennifer; Kajander, Ann – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Professional learning groups are becoming a popular form of teacher development in mathematics. Due to the personal nature of the groups, as well as differences in initial beliefs and capacity, teachers may respond differently to such opportunities. A total of 14 teachers were observed over a three-year period, and two contrasting participants,…

Zembat, Ismail Ozgur; Yasa, Seyit Ali – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
The purpose of this study was to uncover the degree to which in-service teachers understand sociomathematical norms and the nature of that understanding without having to enter and observe their classes. We therefore developed five classroom scenarios exemplifying classroom interactions shaped by certain sociomathematical norms. We then…
