Novak, Julia; Kensington-Miller, Barbara; Evans, Tanya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper describes students' perspectives of a one-off flipped lecture in a large undergraduate mathematics service course. The focus was on calculating matrix determinants and was designed specifically to introduce debate and argumentation into a mathematics lecture. The intention was to promote a deeper learning and understanding through…

Hoadley, Susan; Tickle, Leonie; Wood, Leigh N.; Kyng, Tim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Graduates with well-developed capabilities in finance are invaluable to our society and in increasing demand. Universities face the challenge of designing finance programmes to develop these capabilities and the essential knowledge that underpins them. Our research responds to this challenge by identifying threshold concepts that are central to…

Sheryn, Louise; Ell, Fiona – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Debates about how undergraduate mathematics should be taught are informed by different views of what it is to learn and to do mathematics. In this qualitative study 10 students enrolled in an advanced undergraduate course in mathematics shared their views about how they best learn mathematics. After participating in a semester-long course in…

Kensington-Miller, Barbara; Sneddon, Jamie; Stewart, Sepideh – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
The changes in academic identity a teacher may undergo, as they modify their teaching practice, will vary depending on their experiences and the support they receive. In this paper, we describe the shifts in academic identity of two lecturers, a mathematician and a mathematics educator, as they both made changes to their teaching practice by…

Yoon, Caroline; Oates, Greg; Sneddon, Jamie – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
With the proliferation of new affordable recording technologies, many universities have begun offering students recordings of live lectures as a part of the course resources. We conducted a survey to investigate why some students choose to attend lectures in person rather than simply watching the recordings online, and how students view the two…

Hannah, John; James, Alex; Williams, Phillipa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Two first-year engineering mathematics courses used computer-aided assessment (CAA) to provide students with opportunities for formative assessment via a series of weekly quizzes. Most students used the assessment until they achieved very high (>90%) quiz scores. Although there is a positive correlation between these quiz marks and the final…

Stewart, Sepideh; Stewart, Wayne – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Over the past decade, many researchers have discussed the effectiveness of clickers and their potential to change the way we teach and interact with students. Although most of the literature revolves around elementary usage of clickers, the deeper questions of how to integrate this technology into teaching are largely unanswered. In this paper, we…

Parnell, Sheena; Statham, Moira – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
The University of Auckland offers a one-year pre-degree Tertiary Foundation Certificate (TFC) Programme, for up to 200 students who are under-prepared for university study. The students may come straight from school without having gained a university entrance qualification, or they may be students returning to education who lack the confidence to…
