Dogan Coskun, Sumeyra; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The purpose of this paper is to examine the cognitive demand levels of tasks used by an in-service primary teacher during length measurement and perimeter instruction and to examine a possible link between these tasks and the teacher's mathematical knowledge in teaching. For this purpose, a case study approach was used and the data was drawn from…

Faggiano, Eleonora; Montone, Antonella; Mariotti, Maria Alessandra – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
This paper presents a study aimed at investigating the didactic potentiality of the combined use of two different kinds of artefacts for the purpose of constructing and conceptualizing mathematical meanings related to the notion of axial symmetry. In our view, the process of meanings construction can be fostered by the use of adequate artefacts,…

El Mouhayar, Rabih; Jurdak, Murad – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper explored variation of strategy use in pattern generalization across different generalization types and across grade level. A test was designed to assess students' strategy use in pattern generalization tasks. The test was given to a sample of 1232 students from grades 4 to 11 from five schools in Lebanon. The findings of this study…

Birenbaum, M.; Nasser, F.; Tatsuoka, C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
This study sheds light on the achievement gap between two culturally diverse populations in Israel by employing a diagnostic model for analysing responses of a representative sample of Jewish and Arab fourth graders on a national mathematics test. The results indicated large significant differences, in favour of the Jewish group, on most…
