Trenholm, S.; Hajek, B.; Robinson, C. L.; Chinnappan, M.; Albrecht, A.; Ashman, H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

The use of recorded lecture videos (RLVs) in mathematics instruction continues to advance. Prior research at the post-secondary level has indicated a tendency for RLV use in mathematics to be negatively correlated with academic performance, although it is unclear whether this is because regular users are generally weaker mathematics students…

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…

Woolcott, Geoff; Chamberlain, Dan; Whannell, Robert; Galligan, Linda – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Higher education faces challenges in retaining students who require a command of numeracy in their chosen field of study. This study applies an innovative combination of relative risk and social network analysis to enrolment data of a single cohort of commencing students from an Australian regional university. Relative risk, often used in…

Ponce Campuzano, Juan Carlos; Matthews, Kelly E.; Adams, Peter – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

In this paper, we report on an experimental activity for discussing the concepts of speed, instantaneous speed and acceleration, generally introduced in first year university courses of calculus or physics. Rather than developing the ideas of calculus and using them to explain these basic concepts for the study of motion, we led 82 first year…

Rylands, Leanne Jill; Shearman, Don – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

This paper considers the effects of both free optional mathematics learning support and engagement on the mathematics performance in a foundation mathematics subject of a cohort of engineering students entering university with poor mathematical skills. New engineering students were directed to either a foundation or standard mathematics subject…

Dunn, Michelle; Loch, Birgit; Scott, Wendy – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

First-year engineering students often struggle to see the relevance of theoretical mathematical concepts for their future studies and professional careers. This is an issue, as students who do not see relevance in fundamental parts of their studies may disengage from these parts and focus their efforts on other subjects they think will be more…

Carnie, Steven; Morphett, Anthony – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Reports such as Bio2010 emphasize the importance of integrating mathematical modelling skills into undergraduate biology and life science programmes, to ensure students have the skills and knowledge needed for biological research in the twenty-first century. One way to do this is by developing a dedicated mathematics subject to teach modelling and…

Dunn, Peter K.; Donnison, Sharn; Cole, Rachel; Bulmer, Michael – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Epidemiology is the study of the distribution of disease in human populations. This means that authentically teaching primary data collection in epidemiology is difficult as students cannot easily access suitable human populations. Using an action research methodology, this paper studied the use of a virtual human population (called "The…

Tisdell, Chris; Loch, Birgit – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Closed captioning of instructional videos is a topic that has not seen much discussion despite its importance for hearing-impaired students and recent legal ramifications if videos are not appropriately captioned. In particular, it is unclear what best practice in captioning videos should be to benefit all learners in disciplines such as…

Everingham, Yvette L.; Gyuris, Emma; Connolly, Sean R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Contemporary science educators must equip their students with the knowledge and practical know-how to connect multiple disciplines like mathematics, computing and the natural sciences to gain a richer and deeper understanding of a scientific problem. However, many biology and earth science students are prejudiced against mathematics due to…

King, Deborah; Varsavsky, Cristina; Belward, Shaun; Matthews, Kelly – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

The purpose of this study is to explore the perceptions mathematics students have of the knowledge and skills they develop throughout their programme of study. It addresses current concerns about the employability of mathematics graduates by contributing much needed insight into how degree programmes are developing broader learning outcomes for…

Loch, Birgit; Lamborn, Julia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Many approaches to make mathematics relevant to first-year engineering students have been described. These include teaching practical engineering applications, or a close collaboration between engineering and mathematics teaching staff on unit design and teaching. In this paper, we report on a novel approach where we gave higher year engineering…

Reid, Jackie; Wilkes, Janelle – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Mapping quantitative skills across the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula will help educators identify gaps and duplication in the teaching, practice and assessment of the necessary skills. This paper describes the development and implementation of quantitative skills mapping tools for courses in STEM at a regional…

King, Deborah; Cattlin, Joann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Over the last two decades, many Australian universities have relaxed their selection requirements for mathematics-dependent degrees, shifting from hard prerequisites to assumed knowledge standards which provide students with an indication of the prior learning that is expected. This has been regarded by some as a positive move, since students who…

Hoadley, Susan; Kyng, Tim; Tickle, Leonie; Wood, Leigh N. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Finance threshold concepts are the essential conceptual knowledge that underpin well-developed financial capabilities and are central to the mastery of finance. In this paper we investigate threshold concepts in finance from the point of view of students, by establishing the extent to which students are aware of threshold concepts identified by…
