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, 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…

Radmehr, Farzad; Drake, Michael – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper compares Revised Bloom's Taxonomy (RBT) and some of the major theories and frameworks that influence the teaching, learning, and assessment of mathematics. This comparison has been made to help students and researchers make decisions about which of the available theories and frameworks might best suit their study. The comparison…

Mingari Scarpello, Giovanni; Ritelli, Daniele – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
When Johann Bernoulli published his lectures on integrals in 1742, integral calculus had become very advanced since the time of their composition in 1692. Nevertheless, these lectures are of excellent clarity and simplicity even when the book deals with major problems of Mathematical Physics. Just to pique some interest, we offer a commented…

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,…

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…

Tang, Gail; El Turkey, Houssein; Cilli-Turner, Emily; Savic, Milos; Karakok, Gulden; Plaxco, David – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Although many policy documents include equity as part of mathematics education standards and principles, researchers continue to explore means by which equity might be supported in classrooms and at the institutional level. Teaching practices that include opportunities for students to engage in active learning have been proposed to address equity.…

Jankvist, Uffe Thomas; Mosvold, Reidar; Fauskanger, Janne; Jakobsen, Arne – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
In this article, we analyse three "classical" cases of using history of mathematics in teacher training and reinterpret them using the framework of mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). We continue with a discussion of the potential benefits of applying MKT as a framework for discussion in research related to the use of history in…

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…

Martinez-Luaces, Victor E. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
This paper will offer an analysis from a theoretical point of view of mathematical modelling, applications and inverse problems of both causation and specification types. Inverse modelling problems give the opportunity to establish connections between theory and practice and to show this fact, a simple linear algebra example in two different…

Samuels, Peter; Haapasalo, Lenni – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
LOGO and turtle graphics were an influential movement in primary school mathematics education in the 1980s and 1990s. Since then, technology has moved forward, both in terms of its sophistication and pedagogical potential; and learner experiences, preferences and ways of thinking have changed dramatically. Based on the authors' previous work and a…

Reisel, John R.; Jablonski, Marissa; Hosseini, Hossein; Munson, Ethan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
A summer bridge program for incoming engineering and computer science freshmen has been used at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from 2007 to 2010. The primary purpose of this program has been to improve the mathematics course placement for incoming students who initially place into a course below Calculus I on the math placement examination.…

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…

Munakata, Mika – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
In this article, ambiguous street and park signs are analysed and deciphered using symbolic logic. These examples showcase the ways in which instructors of undergraduate mathematics courses can blend their students' everyday exposure to logical reasoning with classroom experiences. (Contains 4 tables and 6 figures.)

Hannah, John; James, Alex; Montelle, Clemency; Nokes, Jacqui – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
For many years, it has been a common practice to recognize students with high potential by according them targeted privileges and opportunities. This includes the practice of allowing students to accelerate their high school programme and, in the case of New Zealand students, to take university courses during their final school years. This work…
