Bossé, Michael J.; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Young, Erica Slate – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
This study investigates representational code-switching (RCS) by considering three high school students' communications in the process of comparing and contrasting pairs of representations (e.g., equation and graph) in the context of rational functions. Supporting this study is research in the realms of students interacting with mathematical…

Özgen, Kemal; Aydin, Mehmet; Geçic, Mehmet Ertürk; Bayram, Baran – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate eighth grade students' skills in different problem-posing situations. Problem-posing situations include free, semi-structured and structured problem-posing situations. The study was conducted using case study methodology, which is within the scope of descriptive research. The study was conducted with…

Muir, Tracey – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The concept of flipping the classroom and flipped learning is becoming increasingly more popular in secondary schools. Although more prevalent in tertiary teaching, flipped learning has a number of affordances that may address the challenging demands of teaching secondary mathematics. While enactments of the approach vary, flipped learning…

Krajcevski, Milé; Sears, Ruthmae – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
In this paper, we demonstrate how atypical visual representations of a triangle, square or a parallelogram may hinder students' understanding of a median and altitude. We analyze responses and reasoning given by 16 preservice middle school teachers in a Geometry Connection class. Particularly, the data were garnered from three specific questions…

Ortiz, Enrique; Eisenreich, Heidi A.; Tapp, Laura E. K. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The goal of this study is to analyze undergraduate elementary school pre-service teachers' conceptions and misconceptions of physical and virtual manipulative materials using an interpretive "framework." The "framework" involved the use of the "Concrete," "Pictorial" and "Abstract cognitive levels"…

Lai, Mun Yee; Kinnear, Virginia; Fung, Chun Ip – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
This is a position paper in which we argue for "Teaching for Mathematising" as a pedagogy that supports teaching mathematics for understanding in primary school. Mathematics education in Australia currently emphasises teaching for mathematical understanding, a shift that redirects children's learning from merely memorising computation…

Özaltun Çelik, Aytug; Bukova Güzel, Esra – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
The aim of this study is to explain how to shape the lesson study designed for improving mathematics teachers' knowledge of student thinking and to uncover the evidences of the mathematics teachers' knowledge of student thinking in their lessons. The lesson study composed of three cycles with five stages was carried out with three mathematics…

Bossé, Michael J.; Ringler, Marjorie Campo; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Young, Erica Slate – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Research in second language acquisition and the learning of mathematics has matured through long, albeit disconnected, histories. This study examines how theories and models of second language acquisition can be applied to the learning of mathematics and, through this, develops a novel framework defining stages in the learning of mathematics. This…

Toluk-Ucar, Zulbiye; Bozkus, Figen – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate how prospective elementary school mathematics teachers and elementary school students' ability to distinguish proportional situations from nonproportional situations differ or are alike. Participants of the study were 319 prospective primary and middle school teachers and 320 elementary school students…

Haara, Frode Olav – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Emphasis on the development of the inner qualities thought to make up pedagogical entrepreneurship and use of such entrepreneurship as a strategy in mathematics teaching and learning could be expected to strengthen students' development of mathematical literacy. This is because problem solving, local cultures and resources, authenticity and action…

Kim, Hyung Won – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Research demonstrates a disjuncture between the practices encouraged by teacher education programs and what teachers actually do in the classroom. It also informs us that the cognitive and social characteristics of individual teachers such as their attitudes, beliefs and knowledge contribute to their classroom practices. This qualitative study…

Forsythe, Susan K. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
This paper describes how a dynamic figure was used as the basis for a task designed to support students in developing the hierarchical classification of the kites and their subsets. Following on from a previous study using the task with pairs of students, I describe how I embedded the task into a pedagogical sequence of activities, which included…

Shumway, Jessica F.; Jordan, Kerry E. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
The purpose of this study was to explore the variations in students' achievement on computational fluency assessments and variations in strategies for solving computation problems. Computational fluency was defined as a student's ability to compute flexibly, accurately, efficiently, and appropriately. Seven- and eight-year-old students completed…

Hurst, Chris; Huntley, Ray – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Multiplicative thinking is a critical component of mathematics which largely determines the extent to which people develop mathematical understanding beyond middle primary years. We contend that there are several major issues, one being that much teaching about multiplicative ideas is focussed on algorithms and procedures. An associated issue is…

Karakus, Fatih – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Although the topic of division by zero has been widely discussed in the literature, this subject is still confusing for students, pre-service teachers and teachers. Because of this, teachers at various grade levels may encounter difficulties in conveying the concept to their students. Therefore, in order to provide students with a strong…
