The Nature of Middle School Mathematics Teachers' Pedagogical Content Knowledge: The Case of The Volume of Prisms
Tekin-Sitrava, Reyhan; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2018
This study investigated middle school teachers' knowledge of students' misconceptions and the sources of these misconceptions related to the volume of prisms. This case study investigated four middle school teachers who taught 8th grade students in Ankara (Turkey). Based on the analysis of the data, two misconceptions related to the volume of…

Mathematical Modelling in the Junior Secondary Years: An Approach Incorporating Mathematical Technology
Lowe, James; Carter, Merilyn; Cooper, Tom – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Mathematical models are conceptual processes that use mathematics to describe, explain, and/or predict the behaviour of complex systems. This article is written for teachers of mathematics in the junior secondary years (including out-of-field teachers of mathematics) who may be unfamiliar with mathematical modelling, to explain the steps involved…
