Schürmann, Mirko; Gildehaus, Lara; Liebendörfer, Michael; Schaper, Niclas; Biehler, Rolf; Hochmuth, Reinhard; Kuklinski, Christiane; Lankeit, Elisa – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2021
Mathematics learning support centres (MLSC) are widely established and evaluated in English-speaking countries (such as the UK, Ireland and Australia). In most of these countries, several national surveys on MLSCs exist. They give an overview of the number of MLSCs as well as their characteristics in these countries. In Germany, there is a lack of…

Fredriksen, Helge – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2021
Flipped Classroom as a pedagogical framework has gained popularity at secondary and tertiary levels of mathematics education, but there is a lack of research based on a solid theoretical foundation. This article considers the flipped mathematics classroom from the perspective of affordances and cultural-historical activity theory. The empirical…

Jensen, Mette; Winsløw, Carl – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2021
We present a so-called 'study and research path', designed for advanced high school teaching in the context of a master's thesis project, along with an outline of the mathematical and didactic background. The aim of the paper is to present and discuss an adaptation of Chevallard's 'paradigm of questioning the world' to currently prevailing…

Mahdiyan, Mohadaseh; Barahmand, Ali – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2021
This study focuses on the concept of pairability as a fundamental metaphorical concept in the Cantorian set theory regarding comparison of infinite sets. In this theory, pairability appears in a hierarchical manner of generating and developing as a one-to-one correspondence by arrows in finite, and then in infinite states, a bijection map through…

Ni Shuilleabhain, Aoibhinn; Cronin, Anthony; Prendergast, Mark – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2021
In this paper we explore the attitudes of under-privileged secondary school pupils in Ireland towards mathematics and investigate the impact of attending a 4-week engagement programme on these attitudes. The pupils involved in this research attended schools recognized by the Department of Education & Skills as socio-economically deprived.…

Hodgen, Jeremy; Adkins, Michael; Tomei, Anthony – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
Participation in any kind of mathematical study during upper secondary education in England is significantly lower than in other educational systems. As a result, many English students enter university at age 18 or 19 having not studied mathematics for 2 years or more and relatively large proportions of students entering numerate degree programmes…

Bolondi, Giorgio; Ferretti, Federica; Maffia, Andrea – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
The process of pairing a name with representations or peculiar properties permeates many mathematics classroom situations. In school, many practices go under the label 'definition', even though they can be very different from what mathematicians conceive as a formal definition, and in fact there are substantial differences between these different…

Dzator, Michael; Dzator, Janet – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
The Mathematics and Statistics Support Centre (MSSC) at Central Queensland University (CQU), which is part of the Academic Learning Centre (ALC), has been in operation since 1984 as the first MSSC in Australia. The Mathematics Learning Support (MLS) centres have spread to almost every university in Australia currently. The MSSC at CQU offers free…

Klymchuk, Sergiy; Spooner, Kerri – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
The paper presents results of two case studies with undergraduate students majoring in applied mathematics and engineering. The first case study deals with students' preferences for and difficulties with application problems and pure mathematics questions in their courses. The students were majoring in applied mathematics and taking a second-year…

Cline, Kelly; Zullo, Holly; Huckaby, David A. – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
Common student errors and misconceptions can be addressed through the method of classroom voting, in which the instructor presents a multiple-choice question to the class, and after a few minutes for consideration and small-group discussion, each student votes on the correct answer, using a clicker or a phone. If a large number of students have…

Grove, Michael; Croft, Tony; Lawson, Duncan – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
In response to the well-documented challenges associated with the 'mathematics problem' in UK higher education, many institutions have implemented a programme of mathematics support. Previous surveys within the UK, undertaken in 2001, 2004 and, most recently, 2012, have shown growth in the number of institutions offering such support and indicate…

Dunn, Peter K.; Marshman, Margaret F. – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
Mathematics teachers are often keen to find ways of connecting mathematics with the real world. One way to do so is to teach mathematical modelling using real data. Mathematical models have two components: a model structure and parameters within that structure. Real data can be used in one of two ways for each component: (a) to…

Lowe, T. W.; Mestel, B. D. – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
The development of six online quizzes to support students' study of an introductory mathematics masters module at The Open University is described and their use evaluated. The quizzes were implemented using the "STACK" online e-assessment system, which is powered by a computer-algebra engine. Evaluation of student feedback and an initial…

Rocha, Helena – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
Using technology to get a graphical representation of functions requires the choice of a suitable viewing window. The literature suggests teachers' knowledge as being central in this process, but does not tell us much about how the teachers should manage this. This study aims to improve understanding about the teachers' choices related to the…

Kolahdouz, Fahimeh; Radmehr, Farzad; Alamolhodaei, Hassan – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2020
Undergraduate students majoring in mathematics often face difficulties in comprehending mathematical proofs. Inspired by a number of studies related to students' proof comprehension, and Mejia-Ramos et al.'s study in particular, a test was designed in relation to the proof comprehension of the Cauchy Generalized Mean Value Theorem (CGMVT). The…
