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,…

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…

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…

Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
In keeping with the national mandate of increasing graduates in the sciences in South Africa, a concerted effort in improving the first year experience becomes imperative. First year mathematics courses commonly provide the base knowledge necessary for progression in different degree programmes at university. Success in mathematics courses…

Komatsu, Kotaro; Tsujiyama, Yosuke; Sakamaki, Aruta – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Proof and proving are important components of school mathematics and have multiple functions in mathematical practice. Among these functions of proof, this paper focuses on the discovery function that refers to invention of a new statement or conjecture by reflecting on or utilizing a constructed proof. Based on two cases in which eighth and ninth…

Loch, Birgit; Jordan, Camilla R.; Lowe, Tim W.; Mestel, Ben D. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Basic calculus skills that are prerequisites for advanced mathematical studies continue to be a problem for a significant proportion of higher education students. While there are many types of revision material that could be offered to students, in this paper we investigate whether short, narrated video recordings of mathematical explanations…

Almeida, Rut; Bruno, Alicia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
This paper analyses the strategies used by pre-service primary school teachers for solving simple addition problems involving negative numbers. The findings reveal six different strategies that depend on the difficulty of the problem and, in particular, on the unknown quantity. We note that students use negative numbers in those problems they find…

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…

Hillock, Poh Wah; Jennings, Michael; Roberts, Anthony; Scharaschkin, Victor – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
This article describes a mathematics support programme at the University of Queensland, targeted at first-year engineering students identified as having a high risk of failing a first-year mathematics course in calculus and linear algebra. It describes how students were identified for the programme and the main features of the programme. The…

Seaton, Katherine A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
This article presents an informed reflection on the evolution of teacher-to-learner feedback provided on written assignments in first-year university mathematics subjects. The feedback provided addresses not only mathematical accuracy and skills, but also the development of graduate attributes, such as discipline-appropriate written communication.…

Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Mexican authorities and universities are actively working to improve mathematics teaching and learning across the education system. Thus, efforts are underway to raise the historically low performance in mathematics, which include theoretically grounded pedagogy and curriculum development to raise mathematical knowledge in teacher education…

Varsavsky, Cristina – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
Australian secondary school systems offer three levels of senior (year 12) mathematics studies, none of them compulsory: elementary, intermediate and advanced. The intermediate and advanced studies prepare students for further mathematics studies at university level. In the state of Victoria, there are two versions of intermediate mathematics: one…
