Galagedera, Don; Woodward, George; Degamboda, Sunanda – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Investigates the effects of perceived mathematics ability (PMA) on the learning process with special reference to undergraduates (N=147) following an elementary statistics (ES) course. Concludes that PMA itself is not a good predictor of ES performance; rather, its effect may be challenged through interest, expected grade, and motivation to do…

Forgasz, Helen J.; Leder, Gilah C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Focuses on one potential source of influence on students' perceptions of a tertiary mathematics learning environment. Discusses data from two large-scale surveys (N=1883) and from smaller number of interviews (N=71) with students enrolled in tertiary mathematics courses at five Australian universities. Reveals considerable variations in the…

Mason, John – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Proposes that the style and format of questions used by lecturers and tutors profoundly influence students' conceptions of what mathematics is about and how it is conducted. Use of questions depends on both scaffolding and fading their use in front of students so that students internalize questions for their own learning and practice of…

Thomas, Jan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Mathematics education at every level is increasingly influenced by powerful bureaucrats rather than by the profession. Suggests that mathematical scientists should try to understand the political forces affecting mathematics education for the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) study on teaching and learning mathematics at…

Monaghan, John – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Algebraic calculators with symbolic manipulation capabilities are tools in some classrooms for 14-19 year olds, and their use in learning and teaching mathematics is likely to increase over time. Explains the reports of government-initiated working groups that consider the implications of their use in academic mathematics examinations for…

Imai, Toshihiro – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Aims to find the influence of overcoming fixation in mathematical problem-solving towards divergent thinking in open-ended mathematics problems. Presents findings from an investigation of Japanese junior high school students. Reports that students who can overcome fixation in mathematics can contribute varied and original ideas in open-ended…

Graham, Ted; Rowlands, Stuart – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Discusses reasons for and ways of using computer software to teach mechanics. Describes using software to explore mechanics, challenge misconceptions, make links between mathematical representations and motion, and solve non-standard problems. Stresses the need for structured approaches to the use of software. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/ASK)

Singh, Parmjit – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Investigates the concepts of ratio and proportion constructed by grade 9 students by investigating their proportional reasoning schemes and procedures on three types of tasks: missing value, numerical comparison, and qualitative reasoning. Indicates that students frequently used additive reasoning--that is, a comparison of two numbers by…

Almeida, Dennis – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Presents an initial analysis of a quantitative study of a large sample of mathematics undergraduates in the United Kingdom which describes their declared perceptions about proof, and a qualitative study of a sub-sample of these students which analyzes their proof perceptions as well as their actual proof practices. (Contains 17 references.)…

Pesonen, Martti E.; Malvela, Taina – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2000
Describes changes that are being made in mathematics teachers' subject studies in order to provide students with sufficiently deep knowledge of mathematics and science and with present-day expertise in their profession as teachers. Provides an abstract algebra course as the ultimate example of a pedagogical experiment where co-operative learning…
