Maxwell, Mary; Gleason, Jim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Many large universities, community colleges and some smaller four-year colleges are turning to hybrid or online instruction for remedial and entry level mathematics courses, often assessed using online exams in a proctored computer lab environment. Faculty face the task of choosing questions from a publisher's text bank with very little, if any,…

Mohammad, Abdul Moeed – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
We explore students choice of using computer algebra systems (CAS) in problem-solving relative to their self-reported attitude towards learning mathematics with CAS. Our research design is a case study of nine Norwegian upper-secondary mathematics students with a wide range of attitude towards CAS. Our findings on routine problems indicate that…

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,…

Johansson, B. Tomas – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
A method based on oblique projection is presented for construction of sundials. The derived formulas are classical, but usage of vectors and projections renders a coherent presentation rather than a number of special cases. The presented work is aimed to be useful for those taking a beginning module on vector algebra.

More, M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
We bring out an experience of organizing mathematical competitions that can be used as a medium to motivate the student and teacher minds in new directions of thinking. This can contribute to fostering research, innovation and provide a hands-on experience of mathematical concepts with the real world. Mathematical competitions can be used to build…

Lee, Wha-Suck; Engelbrecht, Johann; Moller, Rita – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Tensor calculus is critical in the study of the vector calculus of the surface of a body. Indeed, tensor calculus is a natural step-up for vector calculus. This paper presents some pitfalls of a traditional course in vector calculus in transitioning to tensor calculus. We show how a deeper emphasis on traditional topics such as the Jacobian can…

Akhtyamov, Azamat; Amram, Meirav; Mouftakhov, Artour – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper, we reconstruct matrices from their minors, and give explicit formulas for the reconstruction of matrices of orders 2 × 3, 2 × 4, 2 × n, 3 × 6 and m × n. We also formulate the Plücker relations, which are the conditions of the existence of a matrix related to its given minors.

Caglayan, Günhan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
This linear algebra note offers teaching and learning ideas in the treatment of the inner product space R[superscript m x n] in a technology-supported learning environment. Classroom activities proposed in this note demonstrate creative ways of integrating MATLAB technology into various properties of Frobenius inner product as visualization tools…

Green, Simon; McGlynn, Susan; Stuart, Deidre; Fahey, Paul; Pettigrew, Jim; Clothier, Peter – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The effect of high school study of mathematics on numeracy performance of sports and exercise science (SES) students is not clear. To investigate this further, we tested the numeracy skills of 401 students enrolled in a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree in SES using a multiple-choice survey consisting of four background questions and 39 numeracy…

Pujol, Jose – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Given two vectors u and v, their cross product u × v is a vector perpendicular to u and v. The motivation for this property, however, is never addressed. Here we show that the existence of the cross and dot products and the perpendicularity property follow from the concept of linear combination, which does not involve products of vectors. For our…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
This paper is based on the presumption that teaching multiple ways to solve the same problem has academic and social value. In particular, we argue that such a multifaceted approach to pedagogy moves towards an environment of more inclusive and personalized learning. From a mathematics education perspective, our discussion is framed around…

Gkioulekas, Eleftherios – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
The standard technique for solving equations with radicals is to square both sides of the equation as many times as necessary to eliminate all radicals. Because the procedure violates logical equivalence, it results in extraneous solutions that do not satisfy the original equation, making it necessary to check all solutions against the original…

Turgut, Melih – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this work, students' thinking modes and representation types in linear algebra are investigated through statistical implicative analysis techniques. Specifically, our research question considers the implicative relationships between students' thinking modes and representation types of linear algebra. The participants were 74 undergraduate…

Libeskind, Shlomo; Stupel, Moshe; Oxman, Victor – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
In this paper, we highlight examples from school mathematics in which invariance did not receive the attention it deserves. We describe how problems related to invariance stimulated the interest of both teachers and students. In school mathematics, invariance is of particular relevance in teaching and learning geometry. When permitted change…

Dobbs, David E. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Let R be an integral domain with quotient field F, let S be a non-empty subset of R and let n = 2 be an integer. If there exists a rational function ?: S [right arrow] F such that ?(a)[superscript n] = a for all a ? S, then S is finite. As a consequence, if F is an ordered field (for instance,[real numbers]) and S is an open interval in F, no such…
