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…

Jobrack, Matthew; Bossé, Michael J.; Chandler, Kayla; Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Student problem solving in the context of a dynamic mathematics environment (DME) has previously been investigated primarily through the lens of whether or not the student could complete a problem-solving task. Herein, we investigate what trajectories students employ in the realms of mathematics, technology, and problem solving as they attempt to…

Mellone, Maria; Tortora, Roberto – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
We present a design study developed in an Italian school. Taking inspiration from the work of the Russian psychologist V. V. Davydov, we have reformulated some activities of his curriculum for the first grade, in order to adapt them to a didactic project for a fifth grade class. In the paper we firstly expose our theoretical assumptions and the…

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…

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…

Trinick, Robyn; Ledger, Gail; Major, Karen; Perger, Pamela – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
Connections between music and mathematics have been of interest to scholars as far back as the time of Pythagoras. In Aotearoa-New Zealand, the use of songs and chants as aids for memorising information such as number patterns and names of geometrical shapes is common practice in early childhood centres and primary classrooms. While such practices…

Larkin, Kevin – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
This article examines pedagogical changes to a mathematics education course for pre-service teachers (PSTs) over a three-year period. Transactional Distance Theory (TDT) is used as a conceptual framework underpinning the course redesign. A case study of one campus (Campus A) is presented. It is chosen for analysis because, of the three campuses on…

Prendergast, Mark; Hongning, Zhang – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
Much research has been carried out in the history of mathematics education to find the factors that influence student achievement in the subject. Among these factors, student attitude towards mathematics has been consistently studied. There has often been a correlation found between students' attitudes and their achievement. In recent years…

Shumway, Jessica F.; Westenskow, Arla; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
The purpose of this study was to identify and describe students' use of number sense as they solved story problem tasks. Three 8- and 9-year-old students participated in clinical interviews. Through a process of holistic and qualitative coding, researchers used the number sense view as a theoretical framework for exploring how students' number…

Pitkäniemi, Harri; Häkkinen, Kaija – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
The objective of our study is to understand and analyse what significance cognitive and emotional networks of classroom processes have in mathematics learning. The subject of the study includes two classrooms from Year 5 of a teacher training school, their pupils (NA=17, NB=19) and student teachers (N=4). The course on decimals, which consisted of…

Furuto, Linda H. L. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
This study comes at an opportune moment for Japanese and U.S. educators, policymakers, and researchers given the trends of global policy and equity-based reform. Discussions of academic achievement in both societies allow us to examine accessibility in mathematics education in order to best prepare teachers to serve the needs of students.…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Lowrie, Tom – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
This paper explores the relationship between social backgrounds and geographical locations with mathematical achievement. Using the national testing system in Australia, correlations between the variables were explored and it was found that students from rural and low SES backgrounds are still being marginalised in school mathematics--in terms of…

Sollervall, Håkan; Stadler, Erika – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
The aim of the presented case study is to investigate how coherent analytical instruments may guide the a priori and a posteriori analyses of a didactical situation. In the a priori analysis we draw on the notion of affordances, as artefact-mediated opportunities for action, to construct hypothetical trajectories of goal-oriented actions that have…

This study comes at an opportune moment for Japanese and U.S. educators, policymakers, and researchers given the trends of global policy and equity-based reform. Discussions of academic achievement in both societies allows us to examine mathematics education as a public good versus private commodity in order to best serve the needs of students.…

Bossé, Michael J.; Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Chandler, Kayla – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014
Understanding how students translate between mathematical representations is of both practical and theoretical importance. This study examined students' processes in their generation of symbolic and graphic representations of given polynomial functions. The purpose was to investigate how students perform these translations. The result of the study…
