Trenholm, S.; Hajek, B.; Robinson, C. L.; Chinnappan, M.; Albrecht, A.; Ashman, H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The use of recorded lecture videos (RLVs) in mathematics instruction continues to advance. Prior research at the post-secondary level has indicated a tendency for RLV use in mathematics to be negatively correlated with academic performance, although it is unclear whether this is because regular users are generally weaker mathematics students…

Ozmen, Zeynep Medine; Guven, Bulent – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Introductory statistics courses, which are important in preparing students for their daily lives, generally derive inferential statistics from informal knowledge. In this transition process, sampling distributions have an important place, yet research has shown that students often have difficulties with this concept. In order to increase their…

Ayan, Rukiye; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The purpose of this study was to examine middle school students' proportional reasoning, solution strategies and difficulties in real life contexts in the domain of geometry and measurement. The underlying reasons of the difficulties were investigated as well. Mixed research design was adopted for the aims of the study by collecting data through…

Güler, Mustafa; Çelik, Derya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

There is a growing emphasis in the teaching profession on pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) as an important knowledge component. The study reported in this article investigates Turkish prospective mathematics teachers' mathematics teaching knowledge in the numbers content domain. A series of 10 open-ended scenario-type questions were adopted to…

Bertacchini, Francesca; Bilotta, Eleonora; Caldarola, Fabio; Pantano, Pietro – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

We present the results of an experimental project, made at the University of Calabria, which uses computer simulations and scientific computational systems in teaching and learning the fundamentals of analytic mechanics, in particular the classical Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulation of the matter. Starting with examples of classical dynamical…

Megalou, Foteini – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

This paper describes a research project implemented in a course of Real Analysis II. The aim of this project is to analyse students' comprehension of the limiting behaviour of a function from "R"[superscript 2] to "R" at a point "P"[subscript 0] focusing on the formal definitions. Alternative definitions and other…

Koparan, Timur – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The Fatih Project in Turkey has improved software in mathematics teaching such as data analysis software. As a result, the need to inquire into the efficiency of computer-supported learning environments has emerged. This study aims to examine the effect of dynamic data analysis software-supported learning environments on secondary school students'…

Ngu, Bing Hiong – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Solution representations can reveal how problem solvers communicate mathematical thinking and reasoning in problem-solving process. The present study examined the solution representations used by 20 pre-service teachers for the percentage change problems. The pre-service teachers were invited to solve a combination of simple and complex percentage…

Nortvedt, Guri A.; Siqveland, Arvid – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Are students transitioning from the secondary level to university studies in mathematics and engineering adequately prepared for education at the tertiary level? In this study, we discuss the prior mathematical knowledge and skills demonstrated by Norwegian engineering ("N" = 1537) and calculus ("N" = 626) university students…

Mohammad, Abdul Moeed – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

We explore students choice of using computer algebra systems (CAS) in problem-solving relative to their self-reported attitude towards learning mathematics with CAS. Our research design is a case study of nine Norwegian upper-secondary mathematics students with a wide range of attitude towards CAS. Our findings on routine problems indicate that…

Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo; Rivera-López, Martha Iris; García-García, Javier – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

This paper reports the results of a research exploring the mathematical connections of pre-university students while they solving tasks which involving rates of change. We assume mathematical connections as a cognitive process through which a person finds real relationships between two or more ideas, concepts, definitions, theorems, procedures,…

Woolcott, Geoff; Chamberlain, Dan; Whannell, Robert; Galligan, Linda – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Higher education faces challenges in retaining students who require a command of numeracy in their chosen field of study. This study applies an innovative combination of relative risk and social network analysis to enrolment data of a single cohort of commencing students from an Australian regional university. Relative risk, often used in…

Dogan Coskun, Sumeyra; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The purpose of this paper is to examine the cognitive demand levels of tasks used by an in-service primary teacher during length measurement and perimeter instruction and to examine a possible link between these tasks and the teacher's mathematical knowledge in teaching. For this purpose, a case study approach was used and the data was drawn from…

Avcu, Ramazan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

In this study, I analyzed and compared definitions of special quadrilaterals presented in the US and Turkish secondary school mathematics textbooks. To this end, seven textbooks from each country were examined based on the following features of mathematical definitions: form of presentation and mathematical correctness, minimality, the nature of…
