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…

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…

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…

Cullen, Amanda L.; Tobias, Jennifer M.; Safak, Elif; Kirwan, J. Vince; Wessman-Enzinger, Nicole M.; Wickstrom, Megan H.; Baek, Jae M. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017

Previous research on preservice teachers' understanding of fractions and algebra has focused on one or the other. To extend this research, we examined 85 undergraduate elementary education majors and middle school mathematics education majors' solutions and solution paths (i.e., the ways or methods in which preservice teachers solve word problems)…

Acar Güvendir, Meltem – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016

This study focused on the extrinsic and intrinsic motivation levels of eighth grade students and its relationship with their mathematical achievement. The participants of the study included 6,829 students who took TIMSS in 2011 and 239 mathematics teachers. The data obtained from the student and teacher questionnaires that are included in the…

Çelik, Derya – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

Linear algebra is one of the most challenging topics to learn and teach in many countries. To facilitate the teaching and learning of linear algebra, priority should be given to epistemologically analyze the concepts that the undergraduate students have difficulty in conceptualizing and to define their ways of reasoning in linear algebra. After…

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 L.; Hughes, Gwyneth; Ely, Robert – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

In this article we examine how secondary school students think about functional relationships. More specifically, we examined seven students' intuitive knowledge in regards to representing two real-world situations with functions. We found students do not tend to represent functional relationships with coordinate graphs even though they are able…

Nyman, Rimma – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015

This article presents results from an empirical study of how student engagement is visible during introductory algebra. Previously, the notion of engagement in mathematics has been studied from students' and researchers' perspectives. This study is instead focused on teachers' perspectives on student engagement. Eight teachers in grade 6-7 have…

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…

Bicer, Ali; Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary M. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] noted that middle and high school students are expected to be able to both explain inequalities by using mathematical symbols and understand meanings by interpreting the solutions of inequalities. Unfortunately, research has revealed that not only do middle and high school students hold…

Ampadu, Ernest – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013

This article explores junior high school students' views regarding what it takes to be successful in mathematics. Qualitative and quantitative methods were employed to collect and analyse data, describe and interpret junior high school students (12-14 years) perceptions about what it takes to be successful in mathematics. 22 students from four…

Bicknell, Brenda; Hunter, Roberta – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012

Moving from primary school (Year 6) to the next stage in schooling (Year 7 intermediate or middle school) can provide challenges for students, teachers, and parents. A study was carried out to investigate these challenges with a focus on mathematics for 65 students from six different urban primary schools in New Zealand. Qualitative data were…
