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…

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…

Kabar, Makbule Gözde Didis – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
In recent years, researchers have become more interested in quadratic equations. This study explores the conceptions high school students have concerning quadratic equations with one unknown, while using concept definition and images as theoretical framework. The data was gathered through semi-structured interviews with 14 eleventh grade high…

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)…
