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,…

Karadeniz, Ilyas; Thompson, Denisse R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Graphing calculators are hand-held technological tools currently used in mathematics classrooms. Teachers' perspectives on using graphing calculators are important in terms of exploring what teachers think about using such technology in advanced mathematics courses, particularly precalculus courses. A descriptive intrinsic case study was conducted…

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.…

Ngu, Bing Hiong; Yeung, Alexander Seeshing; Phan, Huy P. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
An experiment using a sample of 11th graders compared text editing and worked examples approaches in learning to solve dilution and molarity algebra word problems in a chemistry context. Text editing requires students to assess the structure of a word problem by specifying whether the problem text contains sufficient, missing, or irrelevant…

El Mouhayar, Rabih; Jurdak, Murad – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper explored variation of strategy use in pattern generalization across different generalization types and across grade level. A test was designed to assess students' strategy use in pattern generalization tasks. The test was given to a sample of 1232 students from grades 4 to 11 from five schools in Lebanon. The findings of this study…

Lagrange, Jean-Baptiste – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2010
Casyopee is an evolving project focusing on the development of both software and classroom situations to teach algebra and analysis at upper secondary level. In this article, we sketch the rationales for the Casyopee project in relationship with the focus on functions in upper secondary curricula. To evaluate Casyopee's contribution, we present…

Nevin, Orhun – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2005
The purpose of this research is to investigate students' cognitive behaviour in the subjects of function, limit, and derivative according to gender. The research was conducted with the participation of 67 female and 58 male 11th grade students of Gazi High School in Eskisehir in the academic year 2000/2001. The data were obtained through a test…
