Martín-Molina, Verónica; González-Regaña, Alfonso J.; Gavilán-Izquierdo, José María – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

In this work, we study the mathematical practice of defining by mathematics researchers. Since research is an important part of many professional mathematicians, understanding how they do research is a necessary step before thinking about future researchers' undergraduate and postgraduate education. We focus on the defining process associated with…

Cárcamo Bahamonde, Andrea Dorila; Fortuny Aymemí, Josep Maria; Gómez i Urgellés, Joan Vicenç – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

In this article we present a didactic proposal for teaching linear algebra based on two compatible theoretical models: emergent models and mathematical modelling. This proposal begins with a problematic situation related to the creation and use of secure passwords, which leads students toward the construction of the concepts of spanning set and…

Domínguez-García, S.; García-Planas, M. I.; Taberna, J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Technological advances require that basic science courses for engineering, including Linear Algebra, emphasize the development of mathematical strengths associated with modelling and interpretation of results, which are not limited only to calculus abilities. Based on this consideration, we have proposed a project-based learning, giving a dynamic…

Almeida, Rut; Bruno, Alicia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014

This paper analyses the strategies used by pre-service primary school teachers for solving simple addition problems involving negative numbers. The findings reveal six different strategies that depend on the difficulty of the problem and, in particular, on the unknown quantity. We note that students use negative numbers in those problems they find…

Vila, Francisca; Sanz, Amparo – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013

The importance of mathematical literacy in any scientific career is widely recognized. However, various studies report lack of numeracy and mathematical literacy in students from various countries. In the present work, we present a detailed study of the mathematical literacy of Spanish undergraduate students of Biology enrolled in a Plant…

Juan, Angel A.; Steegmann, Cristina; Huertas, Antonia; Martinez, M. Jesus; Simosa, J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011

This article first discusses how information technologies are changing the way knowledge is delivered at universities worldwide. Then, the article reviews some of the most popular learning management systems available today and some of the most useful online resources in the areas of Mathematics and Statistics. After that, some long-term…

Mora, Angel; Merida, Enrique; Eixarch, Ramon – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011

Moodle is an extended learning management system for developing learning units, including mathematically-based subjects. A wide variety of material can be developed in Moodle which contains facilities for forums, questionnaires, lessons, tasks, wikis, glossaries and chats. Therefore, the Moodle platform provides a meeting point for those working…

Falcon, R. M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011

Students of Architecture and Building Engineering Degrees work with Computer Aided Design systems daily in order to design and model architectonic constructions. Since this kind of software is based on the creation and transformation of geometrical objects, it seems to be a useful tool in Maths classes in order to capture the attention of the…

Torres-Jimenez, Jose; Rangel-Valdez, Nelson; Gonzalez-Hernandez, Ana Loreto; Avila-George, Himer – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011

A branch of mathematics commonly used in cryptography is Galois Fields GF(p[superscript n]). Two basic operations performed in GF(p[superscript n]) are the addition and the multiplication. While the addition is generally easy to compute, the multiplication requires a special treatment. A well-known method to compute the multiplication is based on…

Bruno, A.; Espinel, M. C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009

This article details the results of a written test designed to reveal how education majors construct and evaluate histograms and frequency polygons. Included is a description of the mistakes made by the students which shows how they tend to confuse histograms with bar diagrams, incorrectly assign data along the Cartesian axes and experience…

Juan, A.; Huertas, A.; Steegmann, C.; Corcoles, C.; Serrat, C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2008

In this article we present a review of the state of the art in mathematical e-learning and some personal experiences on this area developed during the last eleven years at the Open University of Catalonia (UOC), a completely online university located in Spain. The article discusses important aspects related to online mathematics courses offered in…
