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…

Patkin, Dorit; Plaksin, Olga – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
In this study, we aim to explore the extent of mathematics pre-service teachers' ability to apply their procedural understanding combined with spatial perception for drawing conceptual conclusions related to angles in a pyramid. The participants are 16 pre-service high school mathematics teachers. They have studied solid geometry during one…

Glassmeyer, David; Brakoniecki, Aaron; Amador, Julie M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Including opportunities for students to experience uncertainty in solving mathematical tasks can prompt learners to resolve the uncertainty, leading to mathematical understanding. In this article, we examine how preservice secondary mathematics teachers' thinking about a trigonometric relationship was impacted by a series of tasks that prompted…

Lim, Kien H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
An exploratory study was conducted to investigate the use of magic activities in a math course for prospective middle-school math teachers. This research report focuses on a lesson using two versions of math magic: (1) the "5-4-3-2-1-½ Magic" involves having students choose a secret number and apply six arithmetic operations in sequence…

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…

Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The current study examines whether the engagement of mathematics teachers in modelling activities and subsequent changes in their conceptions about these activities affect their beliefs about mathematics. The sample comprised 52 mathematics teachers working in small groups in four modelling activities. The data were collected from teachers'…

Segal, Ruti; Stupel, Moshe; Sigler, Avi; Jahangiril, Jay – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper we present the results of a study which was carried out in an inquiry-based teaching and learning environment with the use of 'what if not' methodology coupled with the integration of dynamic geometry software. The vast majority of the students reported that they perceived themselves as participants rather than spectators. Most of…

Zengin, Yilmaz – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate pre-service teachers' views about the history of mathematics course in which GeoGebra was used. The qualitative research design was used in this study. The participants of the study consisted of 23 pre-service mathematics teachers studying at a state university in Turkey. An open-ended questionnaire was…

Smith, Ryan C.; Shin, Dongjo; Kim, Somin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
As technology becomes more ubiquitous in the mathematics classroom, teachers are being asked to incorporate it into their lessons more than ever before. The amount of resources available online is staggering and teachers need to be able to analyse and identify resources that would be most appropriate and effective with their students. This study…

Sigler, Avi; Stupel, Moshe; Flores, Alfinio – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Students use GeoGebra to explore the mathematical relations among different radii of circles in a triangle (circumcircle, incircle, excircles) and the sides and other segments in the triangle. The more formal mathematical development of the relations that follows the explorations is based on known geometrical properties, different formulas…

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…

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…

Aydogan Yenmez, Arzu; Erbas, Ayhan Kursat; Cakiroglu, Erdinc; Alacaci, Cengiz; Cetinkaya, Bulent – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Applications and modelling have gained a prominent role in mathematics education reform documents and curricula. Thus, there is a growing need for studies focusing on the effective use of mathematical modelling in classrooms. Assessment is an integral part of using modelling activities in classrooms, since it allows teachers to identify and manage…
