Ozmen, Zeynep Medine; Guven, Bulent – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Introductory statistics courses, which are important in preparing students for their daily lives, generally derive inferential statistics from informal knowledge. In this transition process, sampling distributions have an important place, yet research has shown that students often have difficulties with this concept. In order to increase their…

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…

Dede, Ayse Tekin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Socio-cultural theories in mathematics education field recently emphasize the importance of the collective argumentation within small-group work. Since mathematical modelling tasks require a process in which students search for a solution for real life problems through small-group work, the arguments in this process become an issue of concern.…

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…

Swidan, Osama; Naftaliev, Elena – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

This study was designed to micro-analyze the role of the design of interactive diagrams in learning-teaching the concept of the indefinite integral. The presented case study focuses on the engagement of one pair of 17-year-old students with an interactive diagram for graphically learning-teaching the indefinite integral concept. The authors…

Horzum, Tugba; Ertekin, Erhan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018

The purpose of this study is to analyze what kind of conceptions prospective mathematics teachers (PMTs) have about the base concept (BC). One-hundred and thirty-nine PMTs participated in the study. In this qualitative research, data were obtained through open-ended questions, the semi-structured interviews and pictures of geometric figures drawn…

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…

A Case Study of Pedagogy of Mathematics Support Tutors without a Background in Mathematics Education

Walsh, Richard – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

This study investigates the pedagogical skills and knowledge of three tertiary-level mathematics support tutors in a large group classroom setting. This is achieved through the use of video analysis and a theoretical framework comprising Rowland's Knowledge Quartet and general pedagogical knowledge. The study reports on the findings in relation to…

Jones, Stephen L. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Dr RL Moore was undoubtedly one of the finest mathematics teachers ever. He developed a unique teaching method designed to teach his students to think like mathematicians. His method was not designed to convey any particular mathematical knowledge. Instead, it was designed to teach his students to think. Today, his method has been modified to…

Lesseig, Kristin; Krouss, Paul – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

Flipped instruction is increasing in popularity, however research that moves beyond descriptions of its implementation in mathematics classes is lacking. We sought to better understand how students taking an introductory college algebra course used the resources provided within a flipped instructional model and how students viewed such resources…

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…

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…

Benakli, Nadia; Kostadinov, Boyan; Satyanarayana, Ashwin; Singh, Satyanand – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

The goal of this paper is to promote computational thinking among mathematics, engineering, science and technology students, through hands-on computer experiments. These activities have the potential to empower students to learn, create and invent with technology, and they engage computational thinking through simulations, visualizations and data…

Waldock, Jeff; Rowlett, Peter; Cornock, Claire; Robinson, Mike; Bartholomew, Hannah – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

By helping create a shared, supportive, learning community, the creative use of custom-designed spaces outside the classroom has a major impact on student engagement. The intention is to create spaces that promote peer interaction within and across year groups, encourage closer working relationships between staff and students and support specific…

Johnston, Barbara M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017

This paper describes and analyses the implementation of a "flipped classroom" approach, in an undergraduate mathematics course on numerical methods. The approach replaced all the lecture contents by instructor-made videos and was implemented in the consecutive years 2014 and 2015. The sequential case study presented here begins with an…
