Jung, Hyunyi; Magiera, Marta T. – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

This paper contributes to accumulating the knowledge base about prospective elementary school teachers' (PTs') understanding of socio-critical modeling by exploring how PTs make connections to features of mathematical modeling and social justice while posing mathematical problems and reflecting on their problem-posing. We present a conceptual…

Newman, Sharlene D.; Loughery, Erin; Ecklund, Ambur; Smothers, Marriah; Ongeri, Jefney – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

Previous studies have found that block play results in better spatial ability which may lead to greater mathematical skills. The current study examined a specific type of block play, structured block play in which a copy of a block configuration is constructed. Structured block play is a difficult cognitive task that requires an understanding of…

Dvir, Michal; Ben-Zvi, Dani – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

Employing a statistical modeling inspired pedagogy is becoming a widespread practice in the statistics education community. Many have incorporated the practice of formulating conjectures in their modeling-enhanced educational designs and have reported on its benefits. We further elucidate the mechanism through which students' conjecturing may be…

Parr, Erika David – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

The purpose of this study is to investigate how students interpret expressions from calculus statements in the graphical register. To this end, I conducted 150-minute clinical interviews with 13 undergraduate mathematics students who had completed at least one calculus course. In the interviews, students evaluated six calculus statements for…

Campbell, Tye – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

Understanding how students develop learning opportunities through peer-to-peer interaction is vital for advancing research and practice on collaborative learning environments. This study investigated the discourse practices middle grade students utilized to resolve conflict in ways that promoted or inhibited learning opportunities. Seventy-seven…

Rellensmann, Johanna; Schukajlow, Stanislaw; Blomberg, Judith; Leopold, Claudia – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

We investigated how students' strategic knowledge about situational (pictorial) drawings and mathematical (schematic) drawings affects drawing accuracy and modeling competencies in the domain of geometry. We conducted a pre-posttest experimental study with 473 students in grade 9. Students were randomly assigned to one of three treatment…

Stillman, Gloria Ann; Brown, Jill P. – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

This paper investigates students' mathematical modeling activity in data-rich modeling tasks. It aims at gaining insight into how students develop meaning when modeling data-rich situations and the mathematical models produced. A tendency to model a particular dataset, rather than the phenomenon that the dataset is a particular instance of, has…

Schukajlow, Stanislaw; Kaiser, Gabriele; Stillman, Gloria – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

Mathematical modeling and applications are an important part of curriculum and considered to be important for students' current and future lives. In this contribution, we focus on mathematical modeling from a cognitive prospective. Following embedding the cognitive perspective within the discourse of mathematical modeling, we describe some of the…

Baioa, Ana Margarida; Carreira, Susana – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

The aim of this study is to understand how students' mathematical thinking is activated and nurtured in solving a modeling problem, where the problem situation involves the design of a system. From a STEM integrated perspective, 9th grade students worked on a modeling task aiming to create an identification system based on hand biometrics. The…

Vorhölter, Katrin – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

There are several conceptualizations of modeling competencies, including among others on the one hand so-called sub-competencies, which are required to progress from one step of a modeling process to the next, and metacognitive individual and group strategies. However, the relationship between metacognitive strategies and modeling sub-competencies…

Marmur, Ofer; Koichu, Boris – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

This paper explores student emotion and learning experiences fostered by lecturing-style instruction in Real-Analysis problem-centered lessons. We focus on two lessons that were taught by two reputable instructors and involved challenging, mathematically-related problems the students did not understand. Nonetheless, one lesson evoked negative…

Prediger, Susanne; Neugebauer, Philipp – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

Language-responsive instructional approaches are intended to enhance the mathematics learning of students with low academic language proficiency, mostly by enriching mathematical content trajectories with systematic language-learning opportunities. However, little is known about their effects (and in particular differential effects) in…

Kazak, Sibel; Fujita, Taro; Turmo, Manoli Pifarre – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

In today's age of information, the use of data is very powerful in making informed decisions. Data analytics is a field that is interested in identifying and interpreting trends and patterns within big data to make data-driven decisions. We focus on informal statistical inference and data modeling as a means of developing students' data analytics…

Zapata-Cardona, Lucía; Martínez-Castro, Cindy Alejandra – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

The purpose of this research is to investigate prospective teachers' learning in the statistical modeling process. To reach this goal, we position the study in a socio-critical perspective of modeling that informed the design of a statistical investigation. Participants were 10 prospective teachers from a state university in northwestern Colombia…

Noll, Jennifer; Kirin, Dana; Clement, Kit; Dolor, Jason – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2023

Using simulation approaches when conducting randomization tests for comparing two groups in the context of experimental studies has been promoted as a beneficial approach for supporting student learning of statistical inference. Many researchers have suggested that the data production process in simulations for the randomization test intuitively…
