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…

Walsh, Richard; Guerin, Aoife – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper uses a framework established by one of the author's in a previous study and refines it to develop a rubric for mathematics tutor training in third-level education. The paper further opens the discussion on the necessity of, and practical methods for, providing high quality, efficient tutor training at third-level. Models of mathematics…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Recently, Wilmer III and Costa introduced a method into the mathematics education research literature which they employed to construct solutions to certain classes of ordinary differential equations. In this article, we build on their ideas in the following ways. We establish a link between their approach and the method of successive…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Recently, Robin claimed to introduce clever innovations ('wrinkles') into the mathematics education literature concerning the solutions, and methods of solution, to differential equations. In particular, Robin formulated an iterative scheme in the form of a single integral representation. These ideas were applied to a range of examples involving…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
This paper is based on the presumption that teaching multiple ways to solve the same problem has academic and social value. In particular, we argue that such a multifaceted approach to pedagogy moves towards an environment of more inclusive and personalized learning. From a mathematics education perspective, our discussion is framed around…

Abernethy, Gavin M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
A simple discrete-time two-dimensional dynamical system is constructed and analyzed numerically, with modelling motivations drawn from the zombie virus of popular horror fiction, and with suggestions for further exercises or extensions suitable for an introductory undergraduate course.

Jensen, Jens Højgaard; Niss, Martin; Jankvist, Uffe Thomas – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
The article addresses the problématique of where mathematization is taught in the educational system, and who teaches it. Mathematization is usually not a part of mathematics programs at the upper secondary level, but we argue that physics teaching has something to offer in this respect, if it focuses on solving so-called unformalized problems,…

Ramírez, José L.; Rubiano, Gustavo N. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
In the present article, we introduce a generalization of the spherical inversion. In particular, we define an inversion with respect to an ellipsoid, and prove several properties of this new transformation. The inversion in an ellipsoid is the generalization of the elliptic inversion to the three-dimensional space. We also study the inverse images…

Griffiths, Martin; MacHale, Des – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
We study here an aspect of an infinite set "P" of multivariate polynomials, the elements of which are associated with the arithmetic-geometric-mean inequality. In particular, we show in this article that there exist infinite subsets of probability "P" for which every element may be expressed as a finite sum of squares of real…

Ivanov, O. A.; Ivanova, V. V.; Saltan, A. A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
In this paper, we discuss examples of assignments for a course in discrete mathematics for undergraduate students majoring in business informatics. We consider several problems with computer-based solutions and discuss general strategies for using computers in teaching mathematics and its applications. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of our…

Dana-Picard, Thierry; Zeitoun, David – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
We study a 1-parameter family of trigonometric definite integrals, showing how the joint usage of Information and Communication Technologies and paper-and-pencil work lead to different outputs, revealing different mathematical meanings and different concrete meanings. This family of integrals is useful for describing a phenomenon in soil…

Cortez, L. A. B.; de Oliveira, E. Capelas – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Considering the important role played by mathematical derivatives in the study of physical-chemical processes, this paper discusses the different possibilities and formulations of this concept and its application. In particular, in Chemical Thermodynamics, we study exact differentials associated with the so-called state functions and inexact…

Tsai, Tsung-Lung; Li, Hui-Chuan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Over the past few decades, researchers, policy makers, educators and the general public, who have an interest in mathematics education in different countries, pay a great deal of attention to the results from international comparative studies. Of great interest to the international studies is the results of Eastern students consistently achieving…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper presents some critical perspectives regarding pedagogical approaches to the method of reversing the order of integration in double integrals from prevailing educational literature on multivariable calculus. First, we question the message found in popular textbooks that the traditional process of reversing the order of integration is…

Kabaca, Tolga – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This article's aim is to suggest a supplementary learning environment to understand the hierarchical classification of quadrilaterals for high school or higher degree learners. Three diagonal properties, "being congruent, being perpendicular" and "dividing each other in particular ratio," and all possible combinations of these…
