Koban, Lori; Sisneros-Thiry, Simone – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

FOIL is a well-known mnemonic that is used to find the product of two binomials. We conduct a large sample (n = 252) observational study of first-year college students and show that while the FOIL procedure leads to the accurate expansion of the product of two binomials for most students who apply it, only half of these students exhibit conceptual…

Zengin, Yilmaz; Tatar, Enver – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of dynamic mathematics software on the achievement of pre-service mathematics teachers in the topic of polar coordinates and to solicit their opinions about computer-assisted instruction. The study was conducted for 11 weeks with 33 pre-service teachers in the Department of Mathematics…

Hieb, Jeffrey L.; Lyle, Keith B.; Ralston, Patricia A. S.; Chariker, Julia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

At the University of Louisville, a large, urban institution in the south-east United States, undergraduate engineering students take their mathematics courses from the school of engineering. In the fall of their freshman year, engineering students take "Engineering Analysis I," a calculus-based engineering analysis course. After the…

Hourigan, Mairéad; O'Donoghue, John – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

There is international dissatisfaction regarding the standard of mathematics subject matter knowledge (MSMK) evident among both qualified and prospective elementary teachers. Ireland is no exception. Following increasing anecdotal evidence of prospective elementary teachers in one Irish College of Education (provider of initial teacher education…

Liston, Miriam – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

This study investigates the potential of video analysis and a mathematical knowledge for teaching framework, the Knowledge Quartet (KQ), in mathematics teacher education programmes. It reports on the effectiveness of these tools in analysing and supporting secondary level pre-service mathematics teachers' subject matter knowledge and pedagogical…

Harris, Diane; Black, Laura; Hernandez-Martinez, Paul; Pepin, Birgit; Williams, Julian – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Mathematics has long been known to be problematic for university engineering students and their teachers, for example, Scanlan. This paper presents recent data gathered from interviews with engineering students who experienced problems with mathematics and their lecturers during their transition through the first year in different programme…

Hawthorne, Casey; Rasmussen, Chris – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

While a significant amount of research has been devoted to exploring why university students struggle applying logic, limited work can be found on how students actually make sense of the notational and structural components used in association with logic. We adapt the theoretical framework of unitizing and reification, which have been effectively…

Heim, Bernhard; Rupp, Florian; Viet, Nils; Stockhausen, Paul v.; Gallenkämper, Jonas; Kreuzer, Judith – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

The art of teaching freshmen students is undergoing a rapid paradigm change. Classical forms of teaching are not applicable any more and an unmanageable offer of new multimedia tools and concepts is glutting the market. Moreover, compared to previous courses, the class size triples. In view of these challenges, we implemented a new teaching…

Lappalainen, Jouni; Rosqvist, Juho – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

This paper explores the ways students perceive the transfer of learned knowledge to new situations -- often a surprisingly difficult prospect. The novel aspect compared to the traditional transfer studies is that the learning phase is not a part of the experiment itself. The intention was only to activate acquired knowledge relevant to the…

King, Deborah; Cattlin, Joann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Over the last two decades, many Australian universities have relaxed their selection requirements for mathematics-dependent degrees, shifting from hard prerequisites to assumed knowledge standards which provide students with an indication of the prior learning that is expected. This has been regarded by some as a positive move, since students who…

Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

In keeping with the national mandate of increasing graduates in the sciences in South Africa, a concerted effort in improving the first year experience becomes imperative. First year mathematics courses commonly provide the base knowledge necessary for progression in different degree programmes at university. Success in mathematics courses…

Cornock, Claire – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Being situated within a course at the applied end of the spectrum of maths degrees, the pure mathematics modules at Sheffield Hallam University have an applied spin. Pure topics are taught through consideration of practical examples such as knots, cryptography and automata. Rubik's cubes are used to teach group theory within a final year pure…

Hoadley, Susan; Kyng, Tim; Tickle, Leonie; Wood, Leigh N. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Finance threshold concepts are the essential conceptual knowledge that underpin well-developed financial capabilities and are central to the mastery of finance. In this paper we investigate threshold concepts in finance from the point of view of students, by establishing the extent to which students are aware of threshold concepts identified by…

Bergsten, Christer; Engelbrecht, Johann; Kågesten, Owe – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

This study forms part of a collaboration project between universities in South Africa and Sweden in which we investigate whether the emphasis in undergraduate mathematics courses for engineering students would benefit from being more conceptually oriented than a traditional more procedurally oriented way of teaching. In this paper, we report in…

Khan, R. Nazim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015

Open book assessment is not a new idea, but it does not seem to have gained ground in higher education. In particular, not much literature is available on open book examinations in mathematics and statistics in higher education. The objective of this paper is to investigate the appropriateness of open book assessments in a first-year business…
