Sani Sahara; Maarten Dolk; Agus Hendriyanto; Tri Atmojo Kusmayadi; Laila Fitriana – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2024
Learning Transformation Geometry (TG) needs a more informal approach to concern situational problems. This study aims to develop actionable knowledge of TG in the form of design related to context and yet general enough to use digital manipulative activities in new situations. We propose such knowledge in the form of conjectured Local…

Caviedes, Sofía; de Gamboa, Genaro; Badillo, Edelmira – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2023
Studies that address preservice teachers' knowledge of area measurement emphasize their lack of knowledge and their tendency towards the use of formulas, without offering a body of knowledge that helps to address such difficulties. This study offers an approximation of the mathematical knowledge necessary for preservice teachers to solve area…

Laksmiwati, Pasttita Ayu; Hidayah, Miftahul; Schmidthaler, Eva; Prahmana, Rully Charitas Indra; Sabitzer, Barbara; Lavicza, Zsolt – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2023
Nowadays, digital technologies are crucial in supporting students in geometry in secondary mathematics classrooms. However, in some cases, the role of visual function in technology was only utilized for seeing and conjecturing, not for experimenting, while to develop a relational understanding of geometry concepts, students should actively…

Wiryanto; Primaniarta, M. Gita; de Mattos, José Roberto Linhares – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2022
"Tedhak siten" is a Javanese traditional ceremony that marks the 8th month of the baby's age, marked by the baby's readiness to set foot on the ground. This tradition has a philosophical meaning with Javanese cultural values related to the concepts of calculating the ceremony time and the geometric shape of the ceremonial equipment used.…

González, Antonio; Gavilán-Izquierdo, José María; Gallego-Sánchez, Inés; Puertas, María Luz – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2022
The need to develop consistent theoretical frameworks for the teaching and learning of discrete mathematics, specifically of graph theory, has attracted the attention of the researchers in mathematics education. Responding to this demand, the scope of the Van Hiele model has been extended to the field of graphs through a proposal of four levels of…

Widjaja, Wanty; Vale, Colleen – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2021
One pedagogical approach to challenge a persistent misconception is to get students to test a conjecture whereby they are confronted with the misconception. A common misconception about a 'direct linear relationship' between area and perimeter is well-documented. In this study, Year 4-6 students were presented with a conjecture that a rectangle…

Yunianto, Wahid; Prahmana, Rully Charitas Indra; Crisan, Cosette – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2021
Measuring teachers' skills and competencies is necessary to ensure teacher quality and contribute to education quality. Research has shown teachers competencies and skills influence students' performances. Previous studies explored teachers' knowledge through testing. Teachers' knowledge of the topic of area-perimeter and teaching strategies has…

Prahmana, Rully Charitas Indra; D'Ambrosio, Ubiratan – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
In general, many people still view mathematics as a subject that is far from reality and culture in everyday life. Historically, in fact, mathematics is very close to daily life and was developed by humans in response to the surrounding phenomena. Indonesia has diverse cultures, including in Yogyakarta. This culture can be used to explore…

Hidayah, Miftahul; Forgasz, Helen – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
This study examined the type of mathematical tasks in two Australian and two Indonesian mathematics textbooks for 7th-grade students. The quantitative data were collected from the coding results of the tasks in the textbooks. The tasks were coded based on six categories: the presentation forms, the cognitive requirements, the contextual features,…

Setiawan, Yayan Eryk; Purwanto; Parta, I. Nengah; Sisworo – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
Linear pattern is the primary material in learning number patterns in junior high schools, but there are still many students who fail to generalize the linear pattern. The students' failure in generalizing the pattern occurred when the students ended to view the problems globally without breaking them into the constructors' components such as the…

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…

Daher, Wajeeh – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
The purpose of the present paper is to study the positions and emotions of grade 7 students who work with technology to learn geometry. This consideration of students' emotions is socially based, which makes it necessary to use a socially-based theoretical framework in order to study them. One such theory is the discursive analysis framework…

Abdullah, Abdul Halim; Shin, Bomi – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
This study compares Malaysian and Korean geometry content in mathematics textbooks to help explain the differences that have been found consistently between the achievement levels of Malaysian and South Korean students in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Studies have shown that the use of textbooks can affect…

Andini, Swastika; Budiyono; Fitriana, Laila – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
The geometry in flipbook multimedia can improve the necessary skills of the 6th graders, so that they achieve the highest level of geometric thinking that is informal deductive. The flipbook which uses technology with flipping experience, animation, video, and music is different than the ordinary printed book. Also, it looks more exciting and…

Denizli, Zeynep Akkurt; Erdogan, Abdulkadir – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
This study aimed to develop a three-dimensional geometric thinking test to determine the geometric thinking of early graders in the paper-pencil environment. First, we determined the components of three-dimensional geometric thinking and prepared questions for each component. Then, we conducted the pilot studies of the test at three stages in six…
