O'Meara, Niamh; Fitzmaurice, Olivia; Johnson, Patrick – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Mathematics teacher educators in the University of Limerick became aware of a lack of conceptual understanding of key mathematics concepts of prospective secondary mathematics teachers through observation on teaching placement and in pedagogy lectures. A pilot study to enhance the conceptual understanding of prospective teachers was carried out…

Fyhn, Anne Birgitte – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Students in Norway and other countries experience vectors as a difficult topic. Four young skilled climbers, who all did well in mathematics at school, participated in the Vector Study (VS). They participated for free and each lesson lasted until the students decided it was over. The idea was to investigate how climbing may function as a basis for…

Laswadi; Kusumah, Yaya S.; Darwis, Sutawanir; Afgani, Jarnawi D. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Conceptual understanding (CU) and procedural fluency (PF) are two important mathematical competencies required by students. CU helps students organizing their knowledge into a coherent whole, and PF helps them to find the right solution of a problem. In order to enhance CU and PF, students need learning experiences in constructing knowledge and…

Latterell, Carmen M.; Wilson, Janelle L. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Preservice elementary teachers hold a variety of beliefs about mathematics and mathematics learning, which influence their teaching. Previous research has shown that preservice elementary teachers believe that mathematics is doing arithmetic. However, it is unclear if preservice elementary teachers truly believe that mathematics is only…

Prendergast, Mark; O'Meara, Niamh – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The Irish education system is unique in an international context as it sets aside a full school year for a transition and youth development programme in the middle of secondary education. The Transition Year (TY) programme is an optional, full time programme offered in the majority of secondary schools. Each school designs its own programme,…

Roche, Joseph; O'Neill, Arlene; Prendergast, Mark – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Science and mathematics education in Ireland is facing an increasing number of challenges due to economic and social change. Some of these challenges mirror international trends while others are unique to the Irish education system. In order to meet the demands that are being placed on science and mathematics education in Ireland at post-primary…

Cunningham, Robert F.; Rappa, Anthony – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Surveys were used to examine mathematics teachers (15) on their ability to solve similarity problems and on their likely implementation of lesson objectives for teaching similarity. All correctly solved a similarity problem requiring a traditional static perspective, but 7 out of 15 failed to correctly solve a problem that required a more…

Brez, Caitlin C.; Allen, Jessica J. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Currently, few studies have addressed public opinions regarding math education. The current study surveyed adults in a Midwestern town in the United States to assess opinions regarding math and math education. Overall, we found that adults believe that math is useful and that math education is important. We found that parents who currently have a…
