Gorev, Dvora; Gurevich-Leibman, Irina – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper presents our experience of integrating technological tools into our mathematics teaching (in both disciplinary and didactic courses) for student-teachers. In the first cycle of our study, a variety of technological tools were used (e.g., dynamic software, hypertexts, video and applets) in teaching two disciplinary mathematics courses.…

Patkin, Dorit; Gazit, Avikam – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
This article aims to present the findings of a research which investigated the effect of a difference in word formulation and mathematical characteristics of story problems on their successful solution by preservice mathematics teachers (students) and practising mathematics teachers. The findings show that in the case of a problem with a…

Lavy, Ilana – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007
This paper reports an example of a situation in which university students had to solve geometrical problems presented to them dynamically using the interactive computerized environment of the "MicroWorlds Project Builder". In the process of the problem solving, the students used ten different solution strategies. The unsuccessful…
