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…

Bossé, Michael J.; Ringler, Marjorie Campo; Bayaga, Anass; Fountain, Catherine; Young, Erica Slate – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Research in second language acquisition and the learning of mathematics has matured through long, albeit disconnected, histories. This study examines how theories and models of second language acquisition can be applied to the learning of mathematics and, through this, develops a novel framework defining stages in the learning of mathematics. This…

Haara, Frode Olav – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Emphasis on the development of the inner qualities thought to make up pedagogical entrepreneurship and use of such entrepreneurship as a strategy in mathematics teaching and learning could be expected to strengthen students' development of mathematical literacy. This is because problem solving, local cultures and resources, authenticity and action…

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…

Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The study investigates the mathematical and the pedagogical content knowledge among in-service and pre-service first- and second-grade mathematics teachers. The sample of 300 subjects consisted of 150 first- and second-grade in-service teachers and 150 pre-service teachers studying in a college of education, 75 of whom were first-year students and…

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)…

Sarac, Ayse; Aslan-Tutak, Fatma – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between teacher efficacy to student trigonometry self-efficacy and student trigonometry achievement. The study included 16 high school teachers and their tenth grade students (n = 571). Teacher efficacy was studied in terms of general teaching efficacy, mathematics teaching…

Tarim, Kamuran – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This study investigates the pattern finding skills of pre-school children and the in-class pattern activities conducted by teachers. The research was designed as a descriptive survey study carried out with a total of 162 children aged 60-77 months from families with middle socio-economic status. The findings of the study revealed that the…

Zeybek, Zulfiye – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
This study aimed to document pre-service elementary teachers' (PSTs'), who are going to teach K-5, ability to construct as well as evaluate justifications varied in terms of levels of sophistication. Additionally, this study aimed to investigate how PSTs' knowledge of content in which they were being asked to prove influenced their ability to…

Karakus, Fatih – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
The analysis of pre-service teachers' concept images can provide information about their mental schema of fractal dimension. There is limited research on students' understanding of fractal and fractal dimension. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the pre-service teachers' understandings of fractal dimension based on concept image. The…

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…

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…

Tularam, Gurudeo Anand; Hulsman, Kees – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
This study focuses on students in first year environmental science degree programs, where traditionally mathematical emphasis has been much less than within the strict science or math majors. The importance now placed on applied mathematics, however, means that students need to gain more conceptual and quantitative knowledge of mathematics in not…
