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…

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…

Debnath, Lokenath; Basu, Kanadpriya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper deals with a brief history of probability theory and its applications to Jacob Bernoulli's famous law of large numbers and theory of errors in observations or measurements. Included are the major contributions of Jacob Bernoulli and Laplace. It is written to pay the tricentennial tribute to Jacob Bernoulli, since the year 2013…

Doehler, Kirsten; Taylor, Laura – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This article is based on the experiences of two statistics professors who have taught students to write and effectively utilize code-based software in a college-level introductory statistics course. Advantages of using software and code-based software in this context are discussed. Suggestions are made on how to ease students into using code with…

Whitacre, Ian; Pierson Bishop, Jessica; Lamb, Lisa L.; Philipp, Randolph A.; Bagley, Spencer; Schappelle, Bonnie P. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
We interviewed 40 students each in grades 7 and 11 to investigate their integer-related reasoning. In one task, the students were asked to write and interpret equations related to a story problem about borrowing money from a friend. All the students solved the story problem correctly. However, they reasoned about the problem in different ways.…

Biza, Irene; Vande Hey, Eugénie – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper summarizes the evaluation of a project that involved undergraduate mathematics students in the development of teaching and learning resources for statistics modules taught in various departments of a university. This evaluation regards students' participation in the project and its impact on their learning of statistics, as…

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…

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…
