Dogan, Hamide; Shear, Edith; Contreras, Angel F. Garcia; Hoffman, Lion – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
We investigated understanding of the linear independence concept based on the type and nature of connections displayed in seven non-mathematics majors' interview responses to a set of open-ended questions. Through a qualitative analysis, we identified six categories of frequently displayed connections. There were also recognizable differences in…

Rani Satyam, V.; Savic, Miloš; Cilli-Turner, Emily; El Turkey, Houssein; Karakok, Gulden – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
Creativity is crucial for doing mathematics, yet many United States students may not have opportunities to experience it in their courses. Moreover, the literature base on views of mathematical creativity lacks the student perspective. To explore the connections between views of and feeling creative, we examine differences in views of creativity…

Bennett, Amy Been – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
Tertiary mathematics educators have been shifting towards an active learning approach to teaching. Many external factors support or hinder their transition towards evidence-based instructional practices, including, of recent international interest, the physical learning spaces. In this study in the U.S., I observed and interviewed instructors of…

May, Bruce Mathew – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
Effects of spaced, repeated retrieval practice and test-potentiated learning on mathematical knowledge and reasoning in an authentic educational setting are investigated in the study. Research participants were a cohort of second-year pre-service mathematics teachers. A revised taxonomy table was utilized to measure the knowledge and reasoning…

Mullen, Claire; Pettigrew, Jim; Cronin, Anthony; Rylands, Leanne; Shearman, Donald – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
The dramatic changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have changed the way in which mathematics and statistics support is offered. Students and staff have been presented with new opportunities and challenges. One-on-one interviews were conducted late in 2020 with 23 students and staff who had experience with fully online mathematics and…

Padayachee, Pragashni; Campbell, Anita L. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
Recreating the social aspects of face-to-face teaching in an online environment became more challenging in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. With limited or no face-to-face interaction with students, lecturers had to explore alternative ways to recreate aspects of an engaging and supportive face-to-face learning environment. This article focuses…

Seaton, Katherine A.; Tacy, Melissa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
While some tertiary mathematics educators approximated the familiar invigilated, closed-book assessment regime in the online environment forced upon us all by a pandemic, others either by choice or necessity needed to devise a new way to assess their students' learning. This Classroom Note both synthesizes advice from the literature about what…

Snead, Suzanne L.; Walker, Lyndon; Loch, Birgit – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
In Australian universities, mathematics is often an essential core subject for disciplines such as engineering, information technology and science. These first-year mathematics subjects may have large enrolments of which a significant number fail the subject and repeat. While interventions to retain students are common, those who have failed…

Palisse, Jennifer; King, Deborah Martina; MacLean, Mark – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
There is a growing interest in using comparative judgement as a peer assessment tool involving students choosing the 'better' of two pieces of work. However, it has not been shown whether peer assessment through comparative judgement is effective for students' learning. To gain a better understanding of the comparative judgement process, we…

Park, Jungeun; Rizzolo, Douglas – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
Given the importance of the ability to use variables flexibly in Calculus and students' difficulties related to various uses of variables, this study examined how variables are treated in calculus class. Data for this study came from graduate teaching assistants' (TAs') classroom teaching, which plays a crucial role in undergraduate students'…

Liakos, Yannis; Gerami, Saba; Mesa, Vilma; Judson, Thomas; Ma, Yue – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
We investigate how an inquiry-oriented, dynamic, open-source calculus textbook shaped one college instructor's planning. We rely on Dietiker et al.'s [(2018). Research commentary: Curricular noticing: A framework to describe teachers' interactions with curriculum materials. "Journal for Research in Mathematics Education," 49(5), 521-532.…

Kinnear, George; Wood, Anna K.; Gratwick, Richard – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
We describe the design and evaluation of an innovative course for beginning undergraduate mathematics students. The course is delivered almost entirely online, making extensive use of computer-aided assessment to provide students with practice problems. We outline various ideas from education research that informed the design of the course, and…

Humenberger, Hans – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
The following article deals with the possibility of discovering several parameters of the picture when using Google Maps images, e.g. time and date of taking the image. This is possible with all pictures in which buildings, trees, poles ('objects') can be seen with their shadows. In some cases, one can find -- with a bit of luck -- an aircraft…

Botetano, Cesar; Abrahamson, Dor – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
In Peru, national assessments repeatedly rank Indigenous mathematics students as the lowest performing across the entirety of Latin America and South America. Whereas lack of financial resources often predicts low measures, the history of educational practice teaches us that students' poverty need not predict their educational outcomes -- creative…

Piskin Tunç, Mutlu; Çakiroglu, Erdinç – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
The purpose of this study was to investigate prospective middle school mathematics teachers' proportional reasoning before and after receiving a practice-based instruction based on proportional reasoning. The Proportional Reasoning Test, semi-structured interviews and observations of student teachings were used to collect data about the…
