Colliver, Yeshe – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
Children's early mathematical abilities are fundamental to their later academic achievement. An interest in mathematics in the early years is likely to establish a positive attitude to later mathematical learning, hopefully sustaining continued interest in mathematics and mathematical learning. Approaches to early mathematics teaching in the early…

Marshman, Margaret – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
Middle year students often do not see the mathematics in the real world whereas the "Australian Curriculum: Mathematics" aims for students to be "confident and creative users and communicators of mathematics" (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority [ACARA] 2012). Using authentic and real mathematics tasks can…

Lazarides, Rebecca; Rubach, Charlott – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
This longitudinal study examined relationships between student-perceived teaching for meaning, support for autonomy, and competence in mathematic classrooms (Time 1), and students' achievement goal orientations and engagement in mathematics 6 months later (Time 2). We tested whether student-perceived instructional characteristics at Time 1…

Brown, Raymond – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
This article focuses on using sociocultural theory to support student engagement with mathematics. The sociocultural approach used, collective argumentation (CA), is based on interactive principles necessary for coordinating student engagement in the discourse of the classroom. A goal of the research was to explore the affordances and constraints…

Carmichael, Colin; Muir, Tracey; Callingham, Rosemary – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
School autonomy has been identified as having an impact on a school's performance, yet less has been reported about the effect this has on students' goal orientations and engagement with mathematics. In a national study conducted in schools across Australia, measures of school autonomy were collected from teachers and school leaders, along with…

Fielding-Wells, Jill; O'Brien, Mia; Makar, Katie – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is a pedagogical approach in which students address complex, ill-structured problems set in authentic contexts. While IBL is gaining ground in Australia as an instructional practice, there has been little research that considers implications for student motivation and engagement. Expectancy-value theory (Eccles and…

Geiger, Vince; Anderson, Judy; Hurrell, Derek – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
The characteristics that typify an effective teacher of mathematics and the environments that support effective teaching practices have been a long-term focus of educational research. In this article we report on an aspect of a larger study that investigated "best practice" in mathematics teaching and learning across all Australian…

Durksen, Tracy L.; Way, Jennifer; Bobis, Janette; Anderson, Judy; Skilling, Karen; Martin, Andrew J. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
We started with a classic research question ("How do teachers motivate and engage middle year students in mathematics?") that is solidly underpinned and guided by an integration of two theoretical and multidimensional models. In particular, the current study illustrates how theory is important for guiding qualitative analytical…

Ding, Meixia; Auxter, Abbey E – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
Prior studies show that elementary school children generally "lack" formal understanding of inverse relations. This study goes beyond lack to explore what children might "have" in their existing conception. A total of 281 students, kindergarten to third grade, were recruited to respond to a questionnaire that involved both…

Gould, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
Learning to count and to produce the correct sequence of number words in English is not a simple process. In NSW government schools taking part in "Early Action for Success", over 800 students in each of the first 3 years of school were assessed every 5 weeks over the school year to determine the highest correct oral count they could…

Demiray, Esra; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
The purposes of this study are to investigate whether pre-service middle school mathematics teachers evaluate discussions in the cases regarding proof by contradiction correctly, to what extent they explain their correct evaluations by referring to proof by contradiction, and the reasons of their misinterpretations of discussions in the cases…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Larkin, Kevin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
In this article, we argue the need to use inter-disciplinary paradigms to make sense of a range of findings from a research project. We developed a methodology using iPad diaries to uncover young students' thinking--mathematical, social and affective--so as to better understand their experiences of mathematics. These students, predominantly from…

Sawatzki, Carly – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
As part of ongoing design-based research exploring financial literacy teaching and learning, 10 tasks termed "financial dilemmas" were trialled by 14 teachers and more than 300 year 5 and 6 students in four government primary schools in urban Darwin. Drawing on data related to three tasks--"Catching the bus," "Laser…

Lee, Carrie W.; Walkowiak, Temple A.; Nietfeld, John L. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between prospective teachers' (PTs) instructional practises and their efficacy beliefs in classroom management and mathematics teaching. A sequential, explanatory mixed-methods design was employed. Results from efficacy surveys, implemented with 54 PTs were linked to a sample of…

Russo, James; Hopkins, Sarah – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
The current study considered young students' (7 and 8 years old) experiences and perceptions of mathematics lessons involving challenging (i.e. cognitively demanding) tasks. We used the Constant Comparative Method to analyse the interview responses (n = 73) regarding what work artefacts students were most proud of creating and why. Five themes…
