Sangwin, Christopher J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

The goal of this paper is to examine single variable real inequalities that arise as tutorial problems and to examine the extent to which current computer algebra systems (CAS) can (1) automatically solve such problems and (2) determine whether students' own answers to such problems are correct. We review how inequalities arise in contemporary…

Harris, Diane; Black, Laura; Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Pepin, Birgit; Williams, Julian – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Mathematics has long been known to be problematic for university engineering students and their teachers, for example, Scanlan. This paper presents recent data gathered from interviews with engineering students who experienced problems with mathematics and their lecturers during their transition through the first year in different programme…

Li, Hui-Chuan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014

This study examines students' procedural and conceptual achievement in fraction addition in England and Taiwan. A total of 1209 participants (561 British students and 648 Taiwanese students) at ages 12 and 13 were recruited from England and Taiwan to take part in the study. A quantitative design by means of a self-designed written test is adopted…

Debnath, Lokenath – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013

This paper deals with a short biography of Paul Dirac, his first celebrated work on quantum mechanics, his first formal systematic use of the Dirac delta function and his famous work on quantum electrodynamics and quantum statistics. Included are his first discovery of the Dirac relativistic wave equation, existence of positron and the intrinsic…

Graham, E.; Headlam, C.; Sharp, J.; Watson, B. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2008

This research examines students' use of graphics calculators and investigates the extent to which the students' use meets their teachers aim when using graphics calculators in the classroom. The teacher's use of her graphics calculator was analysed over a week using Key Record software. The teacher was questioned about her aims and expectations…

Graham, T.; Headlam, C.; Honey, S.; Sharp, J.; Smith, A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2003

Questions the effectiveness of graphics calculators in developing mathematical understanding. Investigates how a small group of students actually used graphics calculators in examination conditions. Finds that very little was made of the calculator when taking the exam with most students preferring to use a scientific calculator instead unless a…
