Maffia, Andrea – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Integrating history of mathematics in classes could be a hard task with young pupils. Indeed, original historical sources have a language that is far from the modern one. Such texts represent cultural artefacts that can give access to mathematical knowledge. The teacher can exploit such potential acting as a mediator between the mathematical signs…

Zubi, Ibtisam Abdelhalek; Peled, Irit; Yarden, Marva – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This study investigates the participation and knowledge growth of children with mathematical difficulties as they work in groups with their classmates on a year-long sequence of modelling tasks. It involves observations of a class of 23 fifth graders, 9 of whom were identified as having difficulties in mathematics. All the students worked for 8…

Brown, Jill Patricia; Stillman, Gloria Ann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
A study conducted with 25 Year 6 primary school students investigated the potential for a short classroom intervention to begin the development of a "Modelling" conception of mathematics on the way to developing a sense of mathematics as a way of thinking about life. The study documents the developmental roots of the cognitive activity,…

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…

Daher, Wajeeh M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Mathematical learning and teaching are increasingly seen as a multimodal experience involved in cultural and social semiotic registers and means, and as such social-cultural semiotic analysis is expected to shed light on learning and teaching processes occurring in the mathematics classroom. In this research, three social-cultural semiotic…

Panaoura, Areti – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Self-efficacy beliefs in mathematics, as a dimension of the affective domain, are related with students' performance on solving tasks and mainly on overcoming cognitive obstacles. The present study investigated the interrelations of cognitive performance on geometry and young students' self-efficacy beliefs about using representations for solving…

Bouta, Hara; Paraskeva, Fotini – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Research spanning two decades shows that there is a continuing development of 3D virtual worlds and investment in such environments for educational purposes. Research stresses the need for these environments to be well-designed and for suitable pedagogies to be implemented in the teaching practice in order for these worlds to be fully effective.…

Papadopoulos, Ioannis – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
In this paper a two-stage research study is described focused on problem solving relevant to place-value and on the use of the operations within the calculator environment. The findings show that in this specific environment and via appropriate tasks teachers are provided with a context to better understand what year 5 or 6 pupils know or do not…
