Martín-Molina, Verónica; González-Regaña, Alfonso J.; Gavilán-Izquierdo, José María – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this work, we study the mathematical practice of defining by mathematics researchers. Since research is an important part of many professional mathematicians, understanding how they do research is a necessary step before thinking about future researchers' undergraduate and postgraduate education. We focus on the defining process associated with…

Cárcamo Bahamonde, Andrea Dorila; Fortuny Aymemí, Josep Maria; Gómez i Urgellés, Joan Vicenç – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
In this article we present a didactic proposal for teaching linear algebra based on two compatible theoretical models: emergent models and mathematical modelling. This proposal begins with a problematic situation related to the creation and use of secure passwords, which leads students toward the construction of the concepts of spanning set and…

Alegre Ansuategui, Francisco José; Moliner Miravet, Lidón – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper describes an experience of same-age peer tutoring conducted with 19 eighth-grade mathematics students in a secondary school in Castellon de la Plana (Spain). Three constructs were analysed before and after launching the program: academic performance, mathematics self-concept and attitude of solidarity. Students' perceptions of the…

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…

Prieto, Nuria Joglar; Sordo Juanena, José María; Star, Jon R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
The information and communication technologies of Web 2.0 are arriving in our schools, allowing the design and implementation of new learning environments with great educational potential. This article proposes a pedagogical model based on a new geometry technology-integrated learning environment, called "Geometry 2.0," which was tested…

Almeida, Rut; Bruno, Alicia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
This paper analyses the strategies used by pre-service primary school teachers for solving simple addition problems involving negative numbers. The findings reveal six different strategies that depend on the difficulty of the problem and, in particular, on the unknown quantity. We note that students use negative numbers in those problems they find…

Vila, Francisca; Sanz, Amparo – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
The importance of mathematical literacy in any scientific career is widely recognized. However, various studies report lack of numeracy and mathematical literacy in students from various countries. In the present work, we present a detailed study of the mathematical literacy of Spanish undergraduate students of Biology enrolled in a Plant…

Fedriani, Eugenio M.; Moyano, Rafael – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
Finding educational truths is an inherently multivariate problem. There are many factors affecting each student and their performances. Because of this, both measuring of skills and assessing students are always complex processes. This is a well-known problem, and a number of solutions have been proposed by specialists. One of its ramifications is…

Mora, Angel; Merida, Enrique; Eixarch, Ramon – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
Moodle is an extended learning management system for developing learning units, including mathematically-based subjects. A wide variety of material can be developed in Moodle which contains facilities for forums, questionnaires, lessons, tasks, wikis, glossaries and chats. Therefore, the Moodle platform provides a meeting point for those working…

Falcon, R. M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
Students of Architecture and Building Engineering Degrees work with Computer Aided Design systems daily in order to design and model architectonic constructions. Since this kind of software is based on the creation and transformation of geometrical objects, it seems to be a useful tool in Maths classes in order to capture the attention of the…

Torres-Jimenez, Jose; Rangel-Valdez, Nelson; Gonzalez-Hernandez, Ana Loreto; Avila-George, Himer – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
A branch of mathematics commonly used in cryptography is Galois Fields GF(p[superscript n]). Two basic operations performed in GF(p[superscript n]) are the addition and the multiplication. While the addition is generally easy to compute, the multiplication requires a special treatment. A well-known method to compute the multiplication is based on…

Herrera, Aurelia Noda; Bruno, Alicia; Gonzalez, Carina; Moreno, Lorenzo; Sanabria, Hilda – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
We present a research report on addition and subtraction conducted with Down syndrome students between the ages of 12 and 31. We interviewed a group of students with Down syndrome who executed algorithms and solved problems using specific materials and paper and pencil. The results show that students with Down syndrome progress through the same…

Bruno, A.; Espinel, M. C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009
This article details the results of a written test designed to reveal how education majors construct and evaluate histograms and frequency polygons. Included is a description of the mistakes made by the students which shows how they tend to confuse histograms with bar diagrams, incorrectly assign data along the Cartesian axes and experience…
