Glasnovic Gracin, Dubravka – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Mathematics textbooks play a very important role in mathematics education and textbook tasks are used by students for practice to a large extent. Since the nature of the tasks may influence the way students think it is important that the textbooks provide a balance of a variety of tasks. The analyses of the requirements in textbook tasks contain…

Bütüner, Suphi Önder; Filiz, Mehmet – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
The aim of this research was to investigate high achievers' erroneous answers and misconceptions on the angle concept. The participants consisted of 233 grade 6 students drawn from eight classes in two well-established elementary schools of Trabzon, Turkey. All the participants were considered to be current achievers in mathematics, graded 4 or 5…

Katz, Sara; Stupel, Moshe – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Individuals and societies that can use mathematics effectively in this period of rapid changes will have a voice on increasing the opportunities and potentials which can shape their future. This has brought affective characteristics, such as self-efficacy, that affect mathematics achievement into focus of the research. Teacher efficacy refers to…

Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh; Tabach, Michal – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Growing awareness of the importance of modelling activities in mathematics education has raised the question of whether teachers are prepared to facilitate the engagement of students in such activities. The current study investigates the effects of how teachers cope with modelling activities in developing their abilities to identify modelling…

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…

Kar, Tugrul – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This study aimed to investigate how the semantic structures of problems posed by sixth-grade middle school students for the addition of fractions affect their problem-posing performance. The students were presented with symbolic operations involving the addition of fractions and asked to pose two different problems related to daily-life situations…

Panaoura, Areti – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Self-efficacy beliefs in mathematics, as a dimension of the affective domain, are related with students' performance on solving tasks and mainly on overcoming cognitive obstacles. The present study investigated the interrelations of cognitive performance on geometry and young students' self-efficacy beliefs about using representations for solving…

Bouta, Hara; Paraskeva, Fotini – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Research spanning two decades shows that there is a continuing development of 3D virtual worlds and investment in such environments for educational purposes. Research stresses the need for these environments to be well-designed and for suitable pedagogies to be implemented in the teaching practice in order for these worlds to be fully effective.…

Papadopoulos, Ioannis – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
In this paper a two-stage research study is described focused on problem solving relevant to place-value and on the use of the operations within the calculator environment. The findings show that in this specific environment and via appropriate tasks teachers are provided with a context to better understand what year 5 or 6 pupils know or do not…

Altiparmak, Kemal; Ozdogan, Ece – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
This study mainly aims to develop an effective strategy to overcome the known difficulties in teaching negative numbers. Another aim is to measure the success of this teaching strategy among a group of elementary level pupils in Izmir, Turkey. Learning negative concepts are supported by computer animations. The academic achievement test developed…
