Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo; Rivera-López, Martha Iris; García-García, Javier – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper reports the results of a research exploring the mathematical connections of pre-university students while they solving tasks which involving rates of change. We assume mathematical connections as a cognitive process through which a person finds real relationships between two or more ideas, concepts, definitions, theorems, procedures,…

García-García, Javier; Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this article, we report the results of research that explores the intra-mathematical connections that high school students make when they solve Calculus tasks, in particular those involving the derivative and the integral. We consider mathematical connections as a cognitive process through which a person relates or associates two or more ideas,…

Camacho-Machín, M.; Guerrero-Ortiz, C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
The aim of this paper is to present and discuss some of the evidence regarding the resources that students use when they establish relationships between a contextual situation and an ordinary differential equation (ODE). We present research results obtained from work by seven students in a graduate level course in mathematics education, where they…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; Miranda-Tirado, Marisa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
This paper reports a qualitative research that identifies Mexican high school students' social representations of mathematics. For this purpose, the social representations of "mathematics", "learning mathematics" and "teaching mathematics" were identified in a group of 50 students. Focus group interviews were carried…

Ponce-Campuzano, Juan Carlos – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
Mexican authorities and universities are actively working to improve mathematics teaching and learning across the education system. Thus, efforts are underway to raise the historically low performance in mathematics, which include theoretically grounded pedagogy and curriculum development to raise mathematical knowledge in teacher education…

Holton, Derek; Muller, Eric; Oikkonen, Juha; Sanchez Valenzuela, Oscar Adolfo; Zizhao, Ren – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009
Here, we look at the enrolments of students in undergraduate mathematics courses in a number of countries. The data show various increases and decreases and we suggest some common reasons for the fluctuations. These include students' goals of a secure and well-paid job, government actions and the state of the economy in the country concerned. We…

Ojeda, M. M.; Sahai, H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2003
Addresses the use of a project-based approach for designing a one-year graduate level program in applied statistics. Describes the pedagogical approach, academic setting, and learning activities in a multidisciplinary context. Comments on the implementation of such a program based on the results from five successive graduating classes at the…
