Sánchez Aguilar, Mario; Castaneda, Apolo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
We report on a study focused on identifying how the notion of "the mathematician" is constructed in lower secondary Mexican mathematics textbooks. To conduct the study, we adopted a Foucauldian approach that allows us to identify the way in which the notion of the mathematician is constructed but also to delineate the possible effects…

Takeuchi, Haruka; Shinno, Yusuke – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This study is aimed at comparing the content in mathematics textbooks from Japan and England, focusing on symmetry and transformations at the lower secondary level. We adopted the concept of praxeology, a main construct of the Anthropological Theory of the Didactic (ATD). Using the ATD framework, our approach regarded textbooks as an empirical…

Laine, Anu; Ahtee, Maija; Näveri, Liisa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
The aim of this article was to determine the factors in teachers' actions that could explain differences in the emotional atmosphere of primary school classrooms. Based on pupils' drawings about their mathematics lessons, we analyzed both the pupils' and their teachers' actions, including pupils requesting help, sitting alone, and talking about…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; García-García, Javier; Valle-Zequeida, María; Dolores-Flores, Crisólogo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This qualitative research addresses the gap of studying the relationship between beliefs about assessment in mathematics and mathematics beliefs by identifying the (espoused) beliefs about assessment and their connections with the mathematical beliefs of 18 high school Mexican out-of-field mathematics teachers (i.e. teachers without formal…

Ayala-Altamirano, Cristina; Molina, Marta – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This article describes part of the findings of a teaching experiment whose objective is to investigate the algebraic abilities of elementary students when they solve situations that involve a functional relationship. In particular, we focus on describing the use and meanings attributed to letters by third-year primary school students when faced…

Ng, Clarence – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Many Australian students from poor families decline to take advanced mathematics when they reach senior secondary school, resulting in an under-representation of disadvantaged student groups in the advanced mathematics streams. It is important to promote disadvantaged students' aspirations for advanced mathematics given the significance of this…

Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Wessel, Lena; Redder, Angelika – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
To what degree can multilingual students profit from bilingual teaching approaches, even when they lack experience in the academic or technical register in their home languages? This study explores this research question in a mixed methods design for a German/Turkish bilingual intervention aimed at fostering conceptual understanding of fractions…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Revina, Shintia; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Past studies have raised caution over educational transfer in mathematics education. The idea that an instructional approach to teaching and learning of mathematics can truly be universal and implemented across all cultures was challenged, as some aspects of the approach might be too closely bound up with the specific context where it was…

Davidson, Aylie; Herbert, Sandra; Bragg, Leicha A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Attention to mathematical reasoning in curriculum standards is part of an international trend, but identifying and understanding reasoning continues to challenge teachers. We report on one component of an Australia-wide initiative supporting teachers to implement innovative pedagogies. This paper contains insights from design research that focused…

Olsher, Shai; Even, Ruhama – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study examined the changes that a group of nine Israeli 7th grade mathematics teachers, who collaborated on editing the textbook they used in class, chose to make in the textbook. Data sources included the project website (using a modified wiki-book platform), the group meetings, interviews with the teachers, individual papers written by the…

Saadati, Farzaneh; Cerda, Gamal; Giaconi, Valentina; Reyes, Cristian; Felmer, Patricio – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study was designed to examine predictors of instructional beliefs related to problem solving that influence mathematics in-service teachers' practices in the Chilean context. A total of 713 in-service mathematics teachers from various elementary schools participated in the survey study during 2015 and 2016. Results showed that teachers'…

Yang, Xinrong; Kaiser, Gabriele; König, Johannes; Blömeke, Sigrid – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research on teacher noticing in the field of mathematics education research has increased in the last decade; however, only a few studies have investigated the social and cultural impact on teachers' noticing. This paper describes results of an international comparative study on (in-service) mathematics teachers' professional noticing in China and…

Yang, Der-Ching – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigated the performance of 790 fourth graders from Taiwan for judging the reasonableness of a computational result by using corresponding methods pertaining to whole numbers. A number-sense web-based two-tier diagnostic test was used to assess the number-sense performance of the fourth graders who participated in this study. The…
