Silber, Steven; Cai, Jinfa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

This exploratory study examined how pre-service teachers (PSTs) pose mathematical problems for free and structured mathematical problem-posing conditions. It was hypothesized that PSTs would pose more complex mathematical problems under structured posing conditions, with increasing levels of complexity, than PSTs would pose under free posing…

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…

Cook, Samuel A.; Fukawa-Connelly, Timothy – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Studies have shown that at the end of an introductory statistics course, students struggle with building block concepts, such as mean and standard deviation, and rely on procedural understandings of the concepts. This study aims to investigate the understandings entering freshman of a department of mathematics and statistics (including mathematics…

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…

Sahin, Ömer; Gökkurt, Burçin; Soylu, Yasin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

The aim of the study is to examine prospective mathematics teachers' pedagogical content knowledge in terms of knowledge of understanding students and knowledge of instructional strategies which are the subcomponents of pedagogical content knowledge. The participants of this research consist of 98 prospective teachers who are studying in two…

Kensington-Miller, Barbara; Novak, Julia; Evans, Tanya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

This paper describes a case study of two pure mathematicians who flipped their lecture to teach matrix determinants in two large mathematics service courses (one at Stage I and the other at Stage II). The purpose of the study was to transform the passive lecture into an active learning opportunity and to introduce valuable mathematical skills,…

Randahl, Mira – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

This paper reports on a study about how the mathematics textbook was perceived and used by the teacher in the context of a calculus part of a basic mathematics course for first-year engineering students. The focus was on the teacher's choices and the use of definitions, examples and exercises in a sequence of lectures introducing the derivative…

Ezepue, Patrick Oseloka; Ojo, Adegbola – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012

A challenging problem in some developing countries such as Nigeria is inadequate training of students in effective problem solving using the core concepts of their disciplines. Related to this is a disconnection between their learning and socio-economic development agenda of a country. These problems are more vivid in statistical education which…

International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007

In this issue's "Classroom Notes" section, the following papers are discussed: (1) "Constructing a line segment whose length is equal to the measure of a given angle" (W. Jacob and T. J. Osler); (2) "Generating functions for the powers of Fibonacci sequences" (D. Terrana and H. Chen); (3) "Evaluation of mean and variance integrals without…

Farmaki, V.; Paschos, T. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007

This paper reports studies of the interaction between the intuitive, the formal and the procedural aspects in the processes of mathematical understanding of Peter, a first-year undergraduate of Mathematics. Using an activity and an interview, an attempt is made to analyse his mental operations. The way in which he handles visual-graphic…
