Libeskind, Shlomo; Stupel, Moshe; Oxman, Victor – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper, we highlight examples from school mathematics in which invariance did not receive the attention it deserves. We describe how problems related to invariance stimulated the interest of both teachers and students. In school mathematics, invariance is of particular relevance in teaching and learning geometry. When permitted change…

Stupel, Moshe; Oxman, Victor; Sigler, Avi – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
We present a geometrical investigation of the process of creating an infinite sequence of triangles inscribed in a circle, whose areas, perimeters and lengths of radii of the inscribed circles tend to a limit in a monotonous manner. First, using geometrical software, we investigate four theorems that represent interesting geometrical properties,…

Stupel, Moshe – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
There are at least five different equivalent definitions of the absolute value concept. In instances where the task is an equation or inequality with only one or two absolute value expressions, it is a worthy educational experience for learners to solve the task using each one of the definitions. On the other hand, if more than two absolute value…
