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…

Yan, Xiaoheng; Mason, John; Hanna, Gila – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This study investigates an exploratory teaching style used in an undergraduate geometry course to help students identify an ellipse. We attempt to probe beneath the surface of exploration to understand how the actions of teachers can contribute to developing students' competence in justifying an ellipse. We analyse the complex interactions between…

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…

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…

Swidan, Osama; Naftaliev, Elena – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This study was designed to micro-analyze the role of the design of interactive diagrams in learning-teaching the concept of the indefinite integral. The presented case study focuses on the engagement of one pair of 17-year-old students with an interactive diagram for graphically learning-teaching the indefinite integral concept. The authors…

Collins, Benjamin V. C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The flipped classroom is becoming a popular course structure in many academic disciplines, but particularly in STEM disciplines, including mathematics. Considerable research has addressed potential advantages and challenges of teaching a flipped course, as well as examining students' attitudes towards the flipped classroom. Studies on students'…

Hammoudi, Mohamad M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The purpose of the study is to examine whether there is a significant relationship between students' motivation to succeed in introductory mathematics courses offered by universities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the dependent variable of the research and another five independent variables including cognitive mathematics self-concept,…

Howard, Emma; Meehan, Maria; Parnell, Andrew – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In "Maths for Business", a mathematics module for non-mathematics specialists, students are given the choice of completing the module content via short online videos, live lectures or a combination of both. In this study, we identify students' specific usage patterns with both of these resources and discuss their reasons for the…

Green, Simon; McGlynn, Susan; Stuart, Deidre; Fahey, Paul; Pettigrew, Jim; Clothier, Peter – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The effect of high school study of mathematics on numeracy performance of sports and exercise science (SES) students is not clear. To investigate this further, we tested the numeracy skills of 401 students enrolled in a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree in SES using a multiple-choice survey consisting of four background questions and 39 numeracy…

Pujol, Jose – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Given two vectors u and v, their cross product u × v is a vector perpendicular to u and v. The motivation for this property, however, is never addressed. Here we show that the existence of the cross and dot products and the perpendicularity property follow from the concept of linear combination, which does not involve products of vectors. For our…

Burns-Childers, Annie; Vidakovic, Draga – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The purpose of this study was to gain insight into 30, first year calculus students' understanding of the relationship between the concept of vertex of a quadratic function and the concept of the derivative. APOS (action-process-object-schema) theory was applied as a guiding framework of analysis on student written work, think-aloud and follow up…

Hyland, Diarmaid; van Kampen, Paul; Nolan, Brien C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
This paper reports on the first part of a multiphase research project that seeks to identify and address the difficulties encountered by physics students when studying differential equations. Differential equations are used extensively by undergraduate physics students, particularly in the advanced modules of their degree. It is, therefore,…

Turgut, Melih – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this work, students' thinking modes and representation types in linear algebra are investigated through statistical implicative analysis techniques. Specifically, our research question considers the implicative relationships between students' thinking modes and representation types of linear algebra. The participants were 74 undergraduate…

McAlevey, Lynn G.; Stent, Alan F. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The treatment of kurtosis in textbooks is both sparse and contradictory with applications rarely discussed. To address this, an easily understood definition of kurtosis is introduced and important applications are demonstrated. Two different approaches to teaching kurtosis are presented based on a financial application.
