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…

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…

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…

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…

Kiliç, Çigdem – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
In that current study, pattern conversion ability of 25 pre-service mathematics teachers (producing figural patterns following number patterns) was investigated. During the study participants were asked to generate figural patterns based on those number patterns. The results of the study indicate that many participants could generate different…

Toh, Tin Lam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This paper reports the performance of one entire cohort of Singapore prospective secondary school mathematics teachers in a mathematics proficiency test. The prospective teachers were admitted to the teacher education program specializing in teaching secondary school mathematics. The strengths of the prospective teachers' content knowledge, their…

Accurso, Kathryn; Gebhard, Meg; Purington, Stephanie B. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This article analyses the experiences of 55 secondary pre-service teachers (PSTs) in a mandated professional development course that used Halliday's systemic functional linguistics (SFL) and related pedagogical practices to support PSTs' development of disciplinary linguistic knowledge for working with linguistically diverse students in the United…

Bobos, Georgeana; Sierpinska, Anna – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
In this paper, we present a design experiment in a "Teaching Mathematics" course for prospective elementary teachers where we sought to develop a "measurement approach" to fractions. We focus on the conceptualization of the mathematical content of the approach. We attribute our progress in the conceptualization to our efforts…

Venenciano, Linda – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
In this study we explore possible long-term effects of an adaptation of the El'konin­-Davydov elementary grades curriculum, Measure Up or MU. The objectives for the study are to assess how students relate an equation of nonnumeric quantities to a length representation, and if former MU students develop and retain a perspective characteristic of…

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…

Nivera, Gladys C. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
A mathematical investigation (MI) encapsulates the reform movement in mathematics education by addressing content and process simultaneously and providing a novel opportunity for students to develop thinking skills and good mental habits. However, introducing MI to teachers and students who are used to routinised teaching approaches and…

Gningue, Serigne Mbaye – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
This paper is written in honor of Zoltan Paul Dienes, an internationally renowned mathematician and educator, who passed away in January 2014. It is an attempt to describe, analyze and apply Dienes' theory on how mathematical structures can be taught by applying his four principles of learning upon which he believed a teacher can base concept…

Doruk, Bekir Kürsat – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
Researchers have proposed a variety of methods to make a connection between real life and mathematics so that it can be learned in a practical way and enable people to utilise mathematics in their daily lives. Model-eliciting activities (MEAs) were developed to fulfil this need and are very capable of serving this purpose. The reason MEAs are so…

Poon, Kin-Keung; Leung, Chi-Keung – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
The purposes of the study reported herein were to identify the common mistakes in geometry made by junior secondary school students in Hong Kong, and to compare the students' performance in geometry with their results in a logic test. A geometry test and a logic test were developed and administered to a sample of 554 students aged between 13 and…

Leung, Issic Kui Chiu; Ding, Lin; Leung, Allen Yuk Lun; Wong, Ngai Ying – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
This study is part of a larger study investigating the subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge of Hong Kong prospective mathematics teachers, the relationship between the knowledge of algebraic operation and its inverse, and their teaching competency. In this paper, we address the subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content…
