Pramudiani, Puri; Herman, Tatang; Turmudi; Dolk, Maarten; Doorman, Michiel – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2022
Understanding of fractions is difficult for Indonesian students. This often leads to misinterpretation in solving fractional problems. In this study, a task aiming at identifying students' struggles in understanding the basic concept of part-whole relationships in fractions was developed and tested with six 4th-grade students. The task uses…

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…

Suryaningrum, Christine Wulandari; Purwanto; Subanji; Susanto, Hery; Ningtyas, Yoga Dwi Windy Kusuma; Irfan, Muhammad – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
Semiotics is simply defined as the sign-using to represent a mathematical concept in a problem-solving. Semiotic reasoning of constructing concept is a process of drawing a conclusion based on object, representamen (sign), and interpretant. This paper aims to describe the phases of semiotic reasoning of elementary students in constructing the…
