Causapin, Mark – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper expands the scope of typical quantitative studies on mathematics self-efficacy by including a short ethnography of the students' daily classroom experiences. It attempts to provide a "thicker description" and a context in which these beliefs could be interpreted. Using both qualitative and quantitative sets of data, it is…

Nasution, Andrea Arifsyah; Lukito, Agung – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
In teaching proportion, the teachers usually give the students a formal formula, such as cross-multiplication, without providing them the meaning of proportionality. Thus, the students just apply it in order to solve proportional problems. However, it does not connote that they understand what proportionality means. In this paper, the authors…

Lam, Toh Tin; Guan, Tay Eng; Seng, Quek Khiok; Hoong, Leong Yew; Choon, Toh Pee; Him, Ho Foo; Jaguthsing, Dindyal – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
This paper reports an innovative approach to teaching problem solving in secondary school mathematics classrooms based on a specifically designed problem-solving module.This approach adopts the science practical paradigm and rides on the works of Polya and Schoenfeld in order to give greater emphasis to the problem solving processes. We report the…

Nam, Pham Sy; Stephens, Max – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
"Limit" is a difficult mathematical concept, even for good students. It is also a key foundational idea for the study of advanced mathematics. It holds a central position as a foundation of the theory of approximation, of continuity, and of differential and integral calculus. However, the difficulty for teachers is how to organise…

Chinnappan, Mohan; Desplat, Bethany – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
The teaching of mathematics for the development of numeracy is emerging to be an important goal of recent reforms. In broad terms, numeracy involves the application of mathematical concepts and procedures in the understanding and solution of a range of problems including real-life problems. Teaching for numeracy, thus calls for skills in…

Hudson, Peter; Matthews, Kelly – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas in university settings; however this may be the result of attitude rather than aptitude. There is widespread agreement that quantitative problem-solving is essential for graduate competence and preparedness in science and other STEM subjects. The research…

Napaphun, Vishnu – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Trends in the curriculum reform propose that algebra should be taught throughout the grades, starting in elementary school. The aim should be to decrease the discontinuity between the arithmetic in elementary school and the algebra in upper grades. This study was conducted to investigate and characterise upper elementary school students…

Chan, Chun Ming Eric; Ng, Kit Ee Dawn; Widjaja, Wanty; Seto, Cynthia – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Mathematical modelling is increasingly becoming part of an instructional approach deemed to develop students with competencies to function as 21st century learners and problem solvers. As mathematical modelling is a relatively new domain in the Singapore primary school mathematics curriculum, many teachers may not be aware of the learning outcomes…

Lew, Hee-Chan; Son, Hong-Chan – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011
The objective of the present study is to describe how students discover rules underlying a certain phenomenon under question and the process in which they mathematically justify such discovery by way of utilizing tables and graphs in the use of the cell reference function of spreadsheets when a problem is not easily solved through simple symbol…

Widjaja, Wanty; Dolk, Maarten; Fauzan, Ahmad – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010
This paper discusses results from a design research in line with Realistic Mathematics Education (RME). Daily cycles of design, classroom experiments, and retrospective analysis are enacted in five days of working about division by fractions. Data consists of episodes of video classroom discussions, and samples of students' work. The focus of…

Eric, Chan Chun Ming – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
The newly revised mathematics curriculum in Singapore has recently factored Applications and Modelling to be part of the teaching and learning of mathematics. Its implication is that even children should now be involved in works of mathematical modelling. However, to be able to implement modelling activities in the primary mathematics classroom,…

Yong, Koay Chen; Saleh, Fatimah – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This study explores the mathematical problem-solving process of trainee teachers in a teachers' training institute. This research adopts a constructivist perspective that views learning mathematics as a process of constructing meaningful representation and knowledge as being constructed by the individual. The research methodology employs the case…
