Murphy, Julia; Chang, Jen-Mei; Suaray, Kagba – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Flipped learning is gaining traction in K-12 for enhancing students' problem-solving skills at an early age; however, there is relatively little large-scale research showing its effectiveness in promoting better learning outcomes in higher education, especially in mathematics classes. In this study, we examined the data compiled from both…

Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh; Tabach, Michal – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Growing awareness of the importance of modelling activities in mathematics education has raised the question of whether teachers are prepared to facilitate the engagement of students in such activities. The current study investigates the effects of how teachers cope with modelling activities in developing their abilities to identify modelling…

Domínguez-García, S.; García-Planas, M. I.; Taberna, J. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
Technological advances require that basic science courses for engineering, including Linear Algebra, emphasize the development of mathematical strengths associated with modelling and interpretation of results, which are not limited only to calculus abilities. Based on this consideration, we have proposed a project-based learning, giving a dynamic…

Yigit Koyunkaya, Melike – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
This study describes mathematics education graduate students' understanding of relationships between sine and cosine of two base angles in a right triangle. To explore students' understanding of these relationships, an elaboration of Skemp's views of instrumental and relational understanding using Tall and Vinner's concept image and concept…

LaRue, Renee; Infante, Nicole Engelke – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Optimization problems in first semester calculus have historically been a challenge for students. Focusing on the classic optimization problem of finding the minimum amount of fencing required to enclose a fixed area, we examine students' activity through the lens of Tall and Vinner's concept image and Carlson and Bloom's multidimensional…

Naccarato, Emilie; Karakok, Gulden – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
The flipped classroom model is being used more frequently in undergraduate mathematics courses. As with any new teaching model, in-depth investigations of both various implementation styles and how the new model improves student learning are needed. Currently, many practitioners have been sharing their implementations of this model. However, there…

Van Dyke, Frances; Malloy, Elizabeth J.; Stallings, Virginia (Lyn) – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This study looks at the impact of college students' writing on a regular basis about mathematical concepts. Specifically we examine the effect of this practice on performance and attitude while controlling for confounding factors. Two professors and a total of 97 students in four different classes participated in the study. Students in the…

Vincent, Brittany; LaRue, Renee; Sealey, Vicki; Engelke, Nicole – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This study explored first-semester calculus students' understanding of tangent lines as well as how students used tangent lines within the context of Newton's method. Task-based interviews were conducted with twelve first-semester calculus students who were asked to verbally describe a tangent line, sketch tangent lines for multiple curves, and…

Jones, Steven R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This study aims to broadly examine how commonly various conceptualizations of the definite integral are drawn on by students as they attempt to explain the meaning of integral expressions. Previous studies have shown that certain conceptualizations, such as the area under a curve or the values of an anti-derivative, may be less productive in…

Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip M.; Sadler, Samuel M.; Bressoud, David M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
College calculus teaches students important mathematical concepts and skills. The course also has a substantial impact on students' attitude toward mathematics, affecting their career aspirations and desires to take more mathematics. This national US study of 3103 students at 123 colleges and universities tracks changes in students'…

Jones, Steven R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Few studies on calculus limits have centred their focus on student understanding of limits at infinity or infinite limits that involve continuous functions (as opposed to discrete sequences). This study examines student understanding of these types of limits using both pure mathematics and applied-science functions and formulas. Seven calculus…

Doehler, Kirsten; Taylor, Laura – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This article is based on the experiences of two statistics professors who have taught students to write and effectively utilize code-based software in a college-level introductory statistics course. Advantages of using software and code-based software in this context are discussed. Suggestions are made on how to ease students into using code with…

Caglayan, Günhan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Despite few limitations, GeoGebra as a dynamic geometry software stood as a powerful instrument in helping university math majors understand, explore, and gain experiences in visualizing the limits of functions and the ?-d formalism. During the process of visualizing a theorem, the order mattered in the sequence of constituents. Students made use…

Cao, Ying; Brizuela, Barbara M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
Past research has investigated students' epistemologies while they were taking courses that required an integrated understanding of mathematical and scientific concepts. However, past studies have not investigated students who are not currently enrolled in such classes. Additionally, past studies have primarily focused on individuals who are…
