Stewart, Sepideh; Epstein, Jonathan; Troup, Jonathan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
In this study, we analysed a mathematician's teaching journals on eigenvalues and eigenvectors in a first-year linear algebra course. The research team employed Tall's ["How humans learn to think mathematically: Exploring the three worlds of mathematics." Cambridge University Press] three-world model of embodied, symbolic and formal as a…

Hillock, Poh Wah; Khan, R. Nazim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This article is a follow-up to an earlier paper on the mathematics support learning tutorial programme (SLT), an intervention programme at The University of Queensland that targets students considered to be at risk of failing Calculus and Linear Algebra I, the first tertiary level mathematics subject at The University of Queensland. The first…

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…

Wiggins, Harry; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper presents an enrichment case study to showcase a possible avenue for attending to the needs of academically strong mathematics students. We report on a group of university students who were presented with the opportunity of exploring a specific first year mathematics topic deeper, using an inquiry-based learning approach as part of an…
