Forgasz, Helen J.; Leder, Gilah C. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017

We report the general public's perceptions and those of 15-year-old school students, about aspects of mathematics learning. For the adult sample, survey data were gathered from pedestrians and Facebook users in Australia, Canada and the UK-countries in which English is the dominant language spoken. Participants responded to items about the…

Bragg, Leicha A.; Herbert, Sandra; Loong, Esther Yoon-Kin; Vale, Colleen; Widjaja, Wanty – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016

Mathematical reasoning is now featured in the mathematics curriculum documents of many nations, but this necessitates changes to teaching practice and hence a need for professional learning. The development of children's mathematical reasoning requires appropriate encouragement and feedback from their teacher who can only do this if they recognise…

Borden, Lisa Lunney – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013

As part of a larger project focused on decolonising mathematics education for Aboriginal students in Atlantic Canada, this article reports on the role of the Mi'kmaw language in mathematics teaching. By exploring how mathematical concepts are talked about (or not talked about) in the Mi'kmaw language, teachers and researchers can gain insight into…

Russell, Gale L.; Chernoff, Egan J. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013

In mathematics education, there are (at least) two seemingly disparate and unethical issues that have been allowed to continue unresolved for decades: the math wars (traditional versus reform teaching and learning of mathematics) and the marginalisation of Indigenous students within K-12 mathematics. Willie Ermine, an Indigenous scholar, has…

Houston, Ken; Mather, Glyn; Wood, Leigh N.; Petocz, Peter; Reid, Anna; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann; Smith, Geoff H. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2010

We have been investigating university student conceptions of mathematics over a number of years, with the goal of enhancing student learning and professional development. We developed an open-ended survey of three questions, on "What is mathematics" and two questions about the role of mathematics in the students' future. This…

Rayner, Vanessa; Pitsolantis, Nicole; Osana, Helena – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2009

The objective of the present study was to examine the relationship between mathematics anxiety and the procedural and conceptual knowledge of fractions in prospective teachers. Thirty-two preservice teachers enrolled in an elementary mathematics methods course were administered the Revised Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale (RMARS, Baloglu, 2002).…

Wood, Leigh; Solomonides, Ian – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2008

There is not just one mathematics taught at university level, nor is there one group of students. Mathematics is taught differently depending on the discipline and the perceived background of the student. There is engineering mathematics for the students heading towards engineering degrees, life science mathematics for those heading towards…

Haimes, David – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 1999

Reports on the strategies adopted by a group of teachers in Ontario, Canada as they implemented de-streaming with grade 9 classes. Indicates that teachers were found to be making special provisions for both low- and high-achieving students and employing a wide range of techniques for assessing student progress. (Contains 20 references.)…

Onslow, Barry – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 1992

Parents (n=148) and their children, ages 9 and 10, were brought together to participate in a Family Math program in Ontario. This program helped promote positive attitudes toward mathematics in parents and children and increased parents' understanding of current methods of teaching mathematics. (MKR)
