Jablonski, Simone; Ludwig, Matthias – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2022
Mathematical arguments are central components of mathematics and play a role in certain types of modelling of potential mathematical giftedness. However, particular characteristics of arguments are interpreted differently in the context of mathematical giftedness. Some models of giftedness see no connection, whereas other models consider the…

Sari, Puspita; Hajizah, Mimi Nur; Purwanto, Swida – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
The number line and the neutralization model have been used very extensively in teaching integer additions and subtractions for decades. Despite their advantages, issues concerning subtractions on these models are still debatable. Therefore, the neutralization on an empty number line (NNL) model is proposed in this research to help students better…

Sutiarso, Sugeng; Coesamin, M.; Nurhanurawati – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
This study is a quasi-experimental research with pretest-posttest control group design, which aims to determine (1) the tendency of students in using various media scaffolding based on gender, and (2) effect of media scaffolding on increasing understanding of students' geometry concepts. Media scaffolding used this study is chart, props, and…
