Polotskaia, Elena – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The main goal of this paper is to show how Vasily Davydov's powerful ideas about the nature of mathematical thinking and learning can transform the teaching and learning of additive word problem solving. The name Vasily Davydov is well known in the field of mathematics education in Russia. However, the transformative value of Davydov's theoretical…

Fellus, Osnat; Biton, Yaniv – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
That mathematics education has been one of the central concerns of educational systems worldwide is no secret. It is also an established consensus that as far back as eighty years ago, Russian psychologists such as Vygotsky, Luria, Meshcheryakov, and Davydov have pioneered work that contributed to the understanding of teaching and learning and…

Wachira, Patrick; Pourdavood, Roland G.; Skitzki, Raymond – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
Recent mathematics education reform calls for efforts to create collaborative and student-centered environments, where students have opportunities to reason and construct their understanding as part of a community of learners. Mathematics instruction should provide students opportunities to engage in mathematical inquiry and meaning making through…

Panaoura, Areti – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Students' cognitive performance on any mathematical concept is related with the respective self-beliefs on understanding it and on using strategies in order to overcome cognitive obstacles. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the role of various aspects of apprehension (perceptual, operative and discursive) in geometrical figure…

Norton, Stephen – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Pedagogical reform in Australia over the last few decades has resulted in a reduced emphasis on the teaching of computational algorithms and a diversity of alternative mechanisms to teach students whole number computations. The effect of these changes upon student recording of whole number computations has had little empirical investigation. As…

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…

Masters, Jessica – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
A secondary data analysis was conducted using a large dataset from a study related to online professional development for eighth grade teachers of mathematics. Using this data, the paper provides a snapshot of the current state of teachers' knowledge related to proportional reasoning and functions. The paper also considers how teachers' knowledge…

Flesch, Michael; Ostler, Elliott – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
This paper presents the results of a study focused on the issue of how proctored testing affects the learning outcomes and integrity in an Intermediate Algebra course setting. The study follows a model of assessment where students in one group have taken two of their five unit exams as proctored tests along with a proctored Comprehensive Final…

Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Bosse, Michael J.; Faulconer, Johna – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
The mathematics education community recognizes the integrality of reading and writing in learning and communicating mathematics knowledge. Unfortunately, many students have yet to significantly experience this integrality in their mathematics classrooms despite the power these tools offer teachers for assessing student knowledge. This paper…

Graybeal, Christy D. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Whether they are acknowledged or not, resources such as textbooks, curriculum guides, assessments, and professional development programs present messages about what is most important for students to learn and how students can best learn this. At times teachers feel obligated to enact these messages, but at other times they feel free to ignore…

Nillas, Leah A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Qualitative research methods were employed to investigate characterization of preservice teachers' mathematical understanding. Responses on test items involving algebraic relationships were analyzed using with-in case analysis (Miles and Huberman, 1994) and Pirie and Kieren's (1994) model of growth of mathematical understanding. Five elementary…

Panasuk, Regina M.; Beyranevand, Matthew L. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Learning about linear relationship with one unknown, middle school students may often demonstrate a certain degree of proficiency manipulating algebraic symbols. When encouraged, they can verbalize and explain the steps they perform, thereby demonstrating awareness of the procedures with symbols according to fixed rules. It is well known that…

Yeo, Joseph B. W.; Yeap, Ban Har – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Many educators believe that mathematical investigation involves both problem posing and problem solving, but some teachers have taught their students to investigate during problem solving. The confusion about the relationship between investigation and problem solving may affect how teachers teach their students and how researchers conduct their…

Namukasa, Immaculate K.; Gadanidis, George – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
In what unique ways can mathematics tasks contribute to pre-service teachers' understanding of subject matter and pedagogy? And what school mathematics tasks can usefully be included in a pre-service program? To contribute to answering these questions, we report on the selection and choice criteria for mathematics tasks that we use in an…
