da Silva, Karina Alessandra Pessoa; de Almeida, Lourdes Maria Werle – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
In this article we present a reflection about the meaning attribution to the mathematical object "exponential function" that emerges from two mathematical modeling activities. The theoretical framework of the text contemplates considerations on Mathematical Modeling and elements of semiotics as theorized by Charles Sanders Peirce. The…

Güler, Mustafa; Çelik, Derya – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
This article discuss the algebra teaching knowledge of preservice elementary mathematics teachers in the context of CK and PCK as well as the relationship between them. The study was conducted with 101 preservice teachers sampled from a state university in Turkey. Rasch analysis was used to interpret the data. The results revealed that preservice…

Ingalls, Victoria – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Many studies have argued the negative effects of external rewards on internal motivation while others assert that external motivation does not necessarily undermine intrinsic motivation. At a private university, students were given the option to earn bonus points for achieving mastery in the online homework systems associated with Statistics and…

Panthi, Ram Krishna; Luitel, Bal Chandra; Belbase, Shashidhar – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to explore mathematics teachers' perception of social justice in mathematics classrooms. We applied interpretive qualitative method for data collection, analysis, and interpretation through iterative process. We administered in-depth semi-structured interviews to capture the perceptions of three mathematics teachers…

Sampaio Figueiredo, Helenara Regina; Batista, Irinéa de Lourdes – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
This article summarizes the preparation and the results of a study, which aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the historical-philosophical approach in teaching trigonometry in association with the detection of cognitive values, as presented by Lacey (1998). On this association lies the theoretical innovation of the work. To conduct the survey,…

Morales, Hector, Jr.; DiNapoli, Joseph – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
We draw on a rehumanizing perspective that covets a student-centered viewpoint around the discipline of mathematics. For Latinx bilinguals, we posit that a translanguaging practice is a vital option by which collective perseverance during problem solving can be sustained and leveraged for meaningful learning. This study explores and examines the…

Amiripour, Parveneh; Dossey, John Arthur; Shahvarni, Ahmad – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
This comparative study of two approaches contrasts a schema-based approach to represent a solution approach to solving whole number contextual problems for grades 2 and 3 with the traditional textbook approach. The participants are 9 to 11- year-old Afghani refugee students enrolled in non-public schools administered by NGO organization in Iran.…

Wijayanti, Dyana; Winsløw, Carl – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
We present a new method in textbook analysis, based on so-called praxeological reference models focused on specific content at task level. This method implies that the mathematical contents of a textbook (or textbook part) is analyzed in terms of the tasks and techniques which are exposed to or demanded from readers; this can then be interpreted…

Lingefjärd, Thomas; Farahani, Djamshid – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
In understanding upper secondary school students' interpretations of information in symbolic representations of a distance-time-relation, little attention has been paid to the analysis of the condition of the conceptual development related to utterances. Understanding this better can help improve the teaching of attribute and information in…

Jiménez-Fernández, Gracia – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
Learning Disabilities in Mathematics (LDM) or dyscalculia are a frequent and disruptive problem within schools. Nevertheless, this problem has received little attention from researchers and practitioners, if compared with the number of studies published on disabilities in reading. Therefore, teachers do not have enough guidance to help children…

Caddle, Mary C.; Bautista, Alfredo; Brizuela, Bárbara M.; Sharpe, Sheree T. – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
While there is widespread agreement that one-size-fits-all professional development (PD) initiatives have limited potential to foster teacher learning, much existing PD is still designed without attention to teachers' motivations and needs. This paper shows that the strengths and weaknesses of middle school mathematics teachers that engage in PD…

Ahl, Linda Marie – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
This article investigates the impact of research findings on the representation of proportional reasoning in two commonly used Swedish mathematics textbook series for grades 7-9. A research-based framework that identifies five learning goals for understanding of proportional reasoning was used to analyse the textbooks. The results brought to…

Taylan, Rukiye Didem; da Ponte, João Pedro – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
This article investigates the pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of a teacher educator who teaches 5th-grade mathematics in a school in the context of a university-school partnership project. PCK is analyzed in a qualitative way through video-taped classroom episodes with focus on interactions between the teacher and the students as well as the…

Jankvist, Uffe Thomas; Misfeldt, Morten; Marcussen, Anders – REDIMAT - Journal of Research in Mathematics Education, 2016
The article discusses three empirical examples of Computer Algebra System (CAS) use in a Danish upper secondary school mathematics class that had experienced a recent change of teacher. All examples lead to didactical problems surrounding the situation and unclear expectations between teacher and students, involving loss of students' mathematical…
