Hernández, Alexánder; Perdomo-Díaz, Josefa; Camacho-Machín, Matías – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
The initial training of mathematics teachers in Spain can start in the final year of the mathematics degree when the students, and future teachers, select courses related to teaching the discipline. At that time, since over the next two years they will probably be certified to enter the profession, it is worth asking oneself what mathematical…

Ibili, Emin; Çat, Mevlüt; Resnyansky, Dmitry; Sahin, Sami; Billinghurst, Mark – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
The aim of this research was to examine the effect of Augmented Reality (AR) supported geometry teaching on students' 3D thinking skills. This research consisted of 3 steps: (1) developing a 3D thinking ability scale, (ii) design and development of an AR Geometry Tutorial System (ARGTS) and (iii) implementation and assessment of geometry teaching…

Falcón, Raúl M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
Partial Latin squares constitute an interesting approach to improve the teaching of different subjects in the mathematics classroom. This paper delves into this topic by introducing the use of a Dynamic Geometry System to deal with these combinatorial structures as a source of loci of points in the Euclidean plane. It is assumed to this end that…

Anat, Klemer; Shirley, Rapoport; Hanna, Lev-Zamir – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
This study describes a teaching process that offers teachers and pupils ways of constructing the division operation through illustration based on defining the reference unit (divisor), the reference whole1 and the dividend. We introduce a computerized dynamic environment, using an Excel spreadsheet, in which both teachers and pupils can…

Zambak, Vecihi S.; Tyminski, Andrew M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
With the emergence of new instructional technologies, pre-service teachers are expected to develop Mathematical Technological Knowledge (MTK), which we define as teacher knowledge of technology developed as a result of exploring mathematics with technology. We examined 16 middle grades pre-service mathematics teachers' (PSMTs) MTK within a…

Kaur, Harpreet – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
This paper examines the effect of the use of dynamic geometry environments on young children's (ages 5-6, kindergarten/grade 1) thinking about angle. It provides a detailed description of introductory sessions of a geometry unit about angle, during which children worked in a whole classroom setting in which they could interact directly with…

Ferrara, Francesca; Ferrari, Giulia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
In this paper, we pursue a materialist approach to tool use to account for the material dimensions of learning mathematics with technology while decentralizing the human body from activity. We root this vision in theoretical advances on embodied mathematics learning and tool use that have been recently offered as alternatives to traditional…

Yavuz Mumcu, Hayal; Cansiz Aktas, Meral – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
This research has been carried out in two stages and has two main objectives. The first aim of the study is to develop a Likert-type scale which is used to determine the attitudes towards the use of mathematics in real life. The second aim is to examine the attitudes of high school students about the use of mathematics in real life according to…

Miles, Richard – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
A key motivational tactic in undergraduate mathematics teaching is to launch topics with fundamental questions that originate from surprising or remarkable phenomena. Nonetheless, constructing a sequence of tasks that promotes students' own routes to resolving such questions is challenging. This note aims to address this challenge in two ways.…

Wares, Arsalan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
In this article, the author describes an occurrence of the golden ratio in the context of regular hexagons. The method described can be used to construct the golden ratio. This is one of many ways one can construct the golden ratio.

Hwang, Jihyun; Choi, Kyong Mi – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
This research is a secondary analysis with Korean students' data collected in the TIMSS 2015 to describe the moderation effects of instructional practices on the relationships between students' emotional dispositions toward mathematics and mathematics achievement. From the TIMSS 2015 database, we collected mathematics achievement scores, a…

Campbell, Anita; Craig, Tracy; Collier-Reed, Brandon – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
The social psychology theory of fixed and growth mindsets offers one reason for observed underachievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), particularly for students who have previously excelled in these disciplines. Fixed mindset beliefs are linked to behaviours that can lead to avoiding challenges and reduced learning,…

Lima, F. M. S. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
In this note, I present an 'easy-to-be-remembered' shortcut for promptly solving the ubiquitous integral [line integral] x[superscript n] e[superscript alpha x] dx for any integer n>0 using only the successive derivatives of x[superscript n]. Some interesting applications are indicated. The shortcut is so simple that it could well be included…

Galindo, Carlos; Gregori, Pablo; Martínez, Vicente – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
In this paper we present a pilot study to improve the learning process on distance learning Engineering master's degrees. We propose an activity where the students individually produce a video in which they explain the solution to one of their assignments. They then receive the teacher's feedback and are acquainted with the assessment rubric.…
