Trenholm, S.; Hajek, B.; Robinson, C. L.; Chinnappan, M.; Albrecht, A.; Ashman, H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The use of recorded lecture videos (RLVs) in mathematics instruction continues to advance. Prior research at the post-secondary level has indicated a tendency for RLV use in mathematics to be negatively correlated with academic performance, although it is unclear whether this is because regular users are generally weaker mathematics students…

Wilson, Aaron T.; Grigorian, Sergey – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

College students may be seen as near-peers to high school students and high school students are often able to see themselves in the college students who are but one step ahead. This nearness in maturity and educational level may place college students in a particularly powerful position when it comes to reaching out to high school students to…

Ozmen, Zeynep Medine; Guven, Bulent – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Introductory statistics courses, which are important in preparing students for their daily lives, generally derive inferential statistics from informal knowledge. In this transition process, sampling distributions have an important place, yet research has shown that students often have difficulties with this concept. In order to increase their…

Ayan, Rukiye; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The purpose of this study was to examine middle school students' proportional reasoning, solution strategies and difficulties in real life contexts in the domain of geometry and measurement. The underlying reasons of the difficulties were investigated as well. Mixed research design was adopted for the aims of the study by collecting data through…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Recently, claims of a 'new and straightforward' method of solution to second-order linear difference equations have appeared in the mathematics education literature from Rivera-Figueroa and Rivera-Rebolledo. The claim of novelty is based on an assumption that 'since the equation is worked in its canonical form', the method within this context must…

Güler, Mustafa; Çelik, Derya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

There is a growing emphasis in the teaching profession on pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) as an important knowledge component. The study reported in this article investigates Turkish prospective mathematics teachers' mathematics teaching knowledge in the numbers content domain. A series of 10 open-ended scenario-type questions were adopted to…

Bertacchini, Francesca; Bilotta, Eleonora; Caldarola, Fabio; Pantano, Pietro – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

We present the results of an experimental project, made at the University of Calabria, which uses computer simulations and scientific computational systems in teaching and learning the fundamentals of analytic mechanics, in particular the classical Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of the matter. Starting with examples of classical dynamical…

Patkin, Dorit; Plaksin, Olga – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

In this study, we aim to explore the extent of mathematics pre-service teachers' ability to apply their procedural understanding combined with spatial perception for drawing conceptual conclusions related to angles in a pyramid. The participants are 16 pre-service high school mathematics teachers. They have studied solid geometry during one…

Megalou, Foteini – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

This paper describes a research project implemented in a course of Real Analysis II. The aim of this project is to analyse students' comprehension of the limiting behaviour of a function from "R"[superscript 2] to "R" at a point "P"[subscript 0] focusing on the formal definitions. Alternative definitions and other…

Dede, Ayse Tekin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Socio-cultural theories in mathematics education field recently emphasize the importance of the collective argumentation within small-group work. Since mathematical modelling tasks require a process in which students search for a solution for real life problems through small-group work, the arguments in this process become an issue of concern.…

Koparan, Timur – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The Fatih Project in Turkey has improved software in mathematics teaching such as data analysis software. As a result, the need to inquire into the efficiency of computer-supported learning environments has emerged. This study aims to examine the effect of dynamic data analysis software-supported learning environments on secondary school students'…

Yan, Xiaoheng; Mason, John; Hanna, Gila – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

This study investigates an exploratory teaching style used in an undergraduate geometry course to help students identify an ellipse. We attempt to probe beneath the surface of exploration to understand how the actions of teachers can contribute to developing students' competence in justifying an ellipse. We analyse the complex interactions between…

Ngu, Bing Hiong – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Solution representations can reveal how problem solvers communicate mathematical thinking and reasoning in problem-solving process. The present study examined the solution representations used by 20 pre-service teachers for the percentage change problems. The pre-service teachers were invited to solve a combination of simple and complex percentage…

Santos-Trigo, Manuel; Reyes-Martínez, Isaid – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The aim of this study was to characterize and discuss ways of reasoning that prospective high school mathematics teachers develop and exhibit in a problem-solving scenario that involves the coordinated use of digital technologies. A conceptual framework that includes Virtual Learning Spaces (VLS) and Resources, Activities, Support and Evaluation…
