Daher, Wajeeh; Anabousy, Ahlam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
The study of function transformations helps students understand the function concept which is a basic and main concept in mathematics, but this study is problematic to school students as well as college students, especially when transformations are performed on non-basic functions. The current research tried to facilitate grade 9 students'…

Brendefur, Jonathan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014
Much research has been conducted on how elementary students develop mathematical understanding and subsequently how teachers might use this information. This article builds on this type of work by investigating how one high-school algebra teacher designs and conducts a lesson on exponential functions. Through a lesson study format she studies with…

Bautista, Alfredo; Brizuela, Bárbara M.; Glennie, Corinne R.; Caddle, Mary C. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014
Professional development (PD) programs often evaluate their impact on teachers' learning by assessing teachers either individually or in groups. The goal of this paper is to illustrate the variety of paths teachers might follow as a result of working in groups within online PD settings. Data are drawn from a PD program for grades 5-9 mathematics…

Lavy, Ilana; Zarfin, Orly – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
In this study we explored the effects of providing ninth-grade students with the chance to take part in decision making concerning the mathematics level they would be assigned to in high school. Decisions concerned their self-competence regarding their mathematical abilities, their learning goals and the class atmosphere. The students were taught…

White, Diana; Donaldson, Brianna; Hodge, Angie; Ruff, Adam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
Math Teachers' Circles have been spreading since their emergence in 2006. These professional development programs, aimed primarily at middle-level mathematics teachers (grades 5-9), focus on developing teachers' mathematical problem solving skills, in line with the Common Core State Standards-Standards of Mathematical Practice. Yet, to date,…

Sapkova, Alesja – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
The article aims to present findings of a study on the profile of traditional/constructivist beliefs of mathematics teachers in Latvia connected with effective teaching. For this purpose, data acquired within the framework of the project "Nordic-Baltic comparative research in mathematics education" (NorBa) were analyzed. The sample…

Lian, Lim Hooi; Yew, Wun Thiam; Idris, Noraini – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Superitem test based on the SOLO model (Structure of the Observing Learning Outcome) has become a powerful alternative assessment tool for monitoring the growth of students' cognitive ability in solving mathematics problems. This article focused on developing a superitem test to assess students' algebraic solving ability through interview method.…
