Wilson, Aaron T.; Grigorian, Sergey – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
College students may be seen as near-peers to high school students and high school students are often able to see themselves in the college students who are but one step ahead. This nearness in maturity and educational level may place college students in a particularly powerful position when it comes to reaching out to high school students to…

Güler, Mustafa; Çelik, Derya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
There is a growing emphasis in the teaching profession on pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) as an important knowledge component. The study reported in this article investigates Turkish prospective mathematics teachers' mathematics teaching knowledge in the numbers content domain. A series of 10 open-ended scenario-type questions were adopted to…

Ngu, Bing Hiong – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Solution representations can reveal how problem solvers communicate mathematical thinking and reasoning in problem-solving process. The present study examined the solution representations used by 20 pre-service teachers for the percentage change problems. The pre-service teachers were invited to solve a combination of simple and complex percentage…

Santos-Trigo, Manuel; Reyes-Martínez, Isaid – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The aim of this study was to characterize and discuss ways of reasoning that prospective high school mathematics teachers develop and exhibit in a problem-solving scenario that involves the coordinated use of digital technologies. A conceptual framework that includes Virtual Learning Spaces (VLS) and Resources, Activities, Support and Evaluation…

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…

Glassmeyer, David; Brakoniecki, Aaron; Amador, Julie M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Including opportunities for students to experience uncertainty in solving mathematical tasks can prompt learners to resolve the uncertainty, leading to mathematical understanding. In this article, we examine how preservice secondary mathematics teachers' thinking about a trigonometric relationship was impacted by a series of tasks that prompted…

Lim, Kien H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
An exploratory study was conducted to investigate the use of magic activities in a math course for prospective middle-school math teachers. This research report focuses on a lesson using two versions of math magic: (1) the "5-4-3-2-1-½ Magic" involves having students choose a secret number and apply six arithmetic operations in sequence…

van der Hoff, Quay; Harding, Ansie – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This study focuses on the mathematics department at a South African university and in particular on teaching of calculus to first year engineering students. The paper reports on a cause-effect analysis, often used for business improvement. The cause-effect analysis indicates that there are many factors that impact on secondary school teaching of…

Aydogan Yenmez, Arzu; Erbas, Ayhan Kursat; Cakiroglu, Erdinc; Alacaci, Cengiz; Cetinkaya, Bulent – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Applications and modelling have gained a prominent role in mathematics education reform documents and curricula. Thus, there is a growing need for studies focusing on the effective use of mathematical modelling in classrooms. Assessment is an integral part of using modelling activities in classrooms, since it allows teachers to identify and manage…

Tossavainen, Timo; Suomalainen, Hannele; Mäkäläinen, Tomi – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
We examine what kind of concept definitions of area a group of Finnish primary and lower secondary student teachers (N = 82) use, and how the quality of the definitions is associated with the participants' success in seven exercises involving area. We are especially interested in how the understanding of the two-dimensionality of area appears in…

Code, Warren; Merchant, Sandra; Maciejewski, Wes; Thomas, Matthew; Lo, Joseph – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
One goal of an undergraduate education in mathematics is to help students develop a productive disposition towards mathematics. A way of conceiving of this is as helping mathematical novices transition to more expert-like perceptions of mathematics. This conceptualization creates a need for a way to characterize students' perceptions of…

Campos, Dilhermando Ferreira; Pinto, Márcia Maria Fusaro – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
In recent years, changes in the Brazilian economic and social scenario have generated a growing demand for higher education in the country. In response to this new context, the federal government launched in 2007 a programme aiming at expansion of the enrolment to public higher education. In such environment of changes, several proposals have…

Alenazi, Ali – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
This study investigated 11 pre-service middle school teachers' solution strategies for exploring their knowledge of fraction division interpretations. Each participant solved six fraction division problems. The problems were organized into two sets: symbolic problems (involving numbers only) and contextual problems (involving measurement…
