Nadarajah, Saralees; Chu, Jeffrey; Chan, Stephen – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
A correlation coefficient taking positive values is introduced. It is more easily understood than other correlation measures especially in social science contexts. Estimation issues are addressed. A data application is given.

Johansson, B. Tomas – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
A method based on oblique projection is presented for construction of sundials. The derived formulas are classical, but usage of vectors and projections renders a coherent presentation rather than a number of special cases. The presented work is aimed to be useful for those taking a beginning module on vector algebra.

Gero, Aharon; Levin, Ilya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The invention of the computer has led to the establishment of a new research paradigm, computation, which has recently become more and more popular in scientific exploration. However, computation is not well represented in high school and university curricula in science and engineering, although it applies to a wide range of disciplines beyond…

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…

Son, Ji-Won; Hu, Qintong; Lim, Woong – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Despite the importance of computational estimation skill for the improvement of number sense, little research exists on preservice teachers' estimation skills and their view on estimation in the US context. This study examined the computational estimation skill of 58 preservice elementary teachers (PSTs) and its relationship to their views of the…

Akhtyamov, Azamat; Amram, Meirav; Mouftakhov, Artour – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper, we reconstruct matrices from their minors, and give explicit formulas for the reconstruction of matrices of orders 2 × 3, 2 × 4, 2 × n, 3 × 6 and m × n. We also formulate the Plücker relations, which are the conditions of the existence of a matrix related to its given minors.

Johansson, B. Tomas – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Evaluation of the cosine function is done via a simple Cordic-like algorithm, together with a package for handling arbitrary-precision arithmetic in the computer program Matlab. Approximations to the cosine function having hundreds of correct decimals are presented with a discussion around errors and implementation.

Sigler, Avi; Stupel, Moshe; Flores, Alfinio – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Students use GeoGebra to explore the mathematical relations among different radii of circles in a triangle (circumcircle, incircle, excircles) and the sides and other segments in the triangle. The more formal mathematical development of the relations that follows the explorations is based on known geometrical properties, different formulas…

Novak, Julia; Kensington-Miller, Barbara; Evans, Tanya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper describes students' perspectives of a one-off flipped lecture in a large undergraduate mathematics service course. The focus was on calculating matrix determinants and was designed specifically to introduce debate and argumentation into a mathematics lecture. The intention was to promote a deeper learning and understanding through…

Bansilal, Sarah – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Inflation rates are often reported in the media and interpreted differently by various people. The purpose of the study was to explore mathematical literacy teachers' written responses to questions based on the concept of percentage increase and inflation. The participants were a group of 59 in-service South African teachers who were enrolled on a…

Benakli, Nadia; Kostadinov, Boyan; Satyanarayana, Ashwin; Singh, Satyanand – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
The goal of this paper is to promote computational thinking among mathematics, engineering, science and technology students, through hands-on computer experiments. These activities have the potential to empower students to learn, create and invent with technology, and they engage computational thinking through simulations, visualizations and data…

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…

Lockwood, Elise; Erickson, Sarah – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Counting problems offer rich opportunities for students to engage in mathematical thinking, but they can be difficult for students to solve. In this paper, we present a study that examines student thinking about one concept within counting, factorials, which are a key aspect of many combinatorial ideas. In an effort to better understand students'…

Sedaghatjou, Mina; Campbell, Stephen R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper explores how a young child (56 m) builds an understanding of the cardinality principle through communicative, touchscreen-based activities involving talk, gesture and body engagement working via multimodal, touchscreen interface using contemporary mobile technology. Drawing upon Nemirovsky's perceptuomotor integration theoretical lens…
