Kizito, Rita; Munyakazi, Justin; Basuayi, Clement – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

In spite of sustained efforts tertiary institutions implement to try and improve student academic performance, the number of students succeeding in first-year mathematics courses remains disturbingly low. For most students, the gap between their mathematical capability and the competencies they are expected and need to develop to function…

Loch, Birgit; Lamborn, Julia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Many approaches to make mathematics relevant to first-year engineering students have been described. These include teaching practical engineering applications, or a close collaboration between engineering and mathematics teaching staff on unit design and teaching. In this paper, we report on a novel approach where we gave higher year engineering…

Maciejewski, Wes; Merchant, Sandra – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Students approach learning in different ways, depending on the experienced learning situation. A deep approach is geared toward long-term retention and conceptual change while a surface approach focuses on quickly acquiring knowledge for immediate use. These approaches ultimately affect the students' academic outcomes. This study takes a…

Attorps, Iiris; Björk, Kjell; Radic, Mirko – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

In this paper, we report a teaching experiment regarding the theory of polynomial approximations at the university mathematics teaching in Sweden. The experiment was designed by applying Variation theory and by using the free dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra. The aim of this study was to investigate if the technology-assisted teaching of…

Koparan, Timur – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

In this study, the effect on the achievement and attitudes of prospective teachers is examined. With this aim ahead, achievement test, attitude scale for statistics and interviews were used as data collection tools. The achievement test comprises 8 problems based on statistical data, and the attitude scale comprises 13 Likert-type items. The study…

Khakbaz, Azimehsadat – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Teaching mathematics in university levels is one of the most important fields of research in the area of mathematics education. Nevertheless, there is little information about teaching knowledge of mathematics university teachers. Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) provides a suitable framework to study knowledge of teachers. The purpose of this…

Jesso, A. T.; Kondratieva, M. F. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

In this study, instructors of undergraduate mathematics from post-secondary institutions in Newfoundland were surveyed (N = 13) and interviewed (N = 8) about their use of, experiences with, and views on, technologically assisted teaching. It was found that the majority of them regularly use technologies for organizational and communication…

Johnson, Estrella; Ellis, Jessica; Rasmussen, Chris – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

This paper is based on a large-scale empirical study designed to investigate Calculus I programmes across the United States to better understand the relationship between instructors' concerns about coverage, instructional practices, and the nature of the material covered. We found that there was no association between instructors feeling pressured…

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…

López, Jonathan; Robles, Izraim; Martínez-Planell, Rafael – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Action-Process-Object-Schema theory (APOS) was applied to study student understanding of quadratic equations in one variable. This required proposing a detailed conjecture (called a genetic decomposition) of mental constructions students may do to understand quadratic equations. The genetic decomposition which was proposed can contribute to help…

Petrillo, Joseph – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

High failure rates in calculus have plagued students, teachers, and administrators for decades, while science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programmes continue to suffer from low enrollments and high attrition. In an effort to affect this reality, some educators are "flipping" (or inverting) their classrooms. By flipping, we…

Reid, Jackie; Wilkes, Janelle – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

Mapping quantitative skills across the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curricula will help educators identify gaps and duplication in the teaching, practice and assessment of the necessary skills. This paper describes the development and implementation of quantitative skills mapping tools for courses in STEM at a regional…

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,…

Sevimli, Eyup – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016

This study aims to evaluate the consistency of teaching content with teaching approaches in calculus on the basis of lecturers' views. In this sense, the structures of the examples given in two commonly used calculus textbooks, both in traditional and reform classrooms, are compared. The content analysis findings show that the examples in both…

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…
