Whitehead, Ashley; Walkowiak, Temple A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
This study examined preservice elementary teachers' change in their understanding of fraction operations while taking a mathematics methods course focused on grades 3-5. The preservice teachers (n = 48) completed an assessment before and after the course's unit on the teaching and learning of fractions. Specifically, the preservice teachers were…

Tunstall, Luke; Bossé, Michael J. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
College algebra (a university freshman level algebra course) fulfills the quantitative literacy requirement of many college's general education programs and is a terminal course for most who take it. An online problem-based learning environment provides a unique means of engaging students in quantitative discussions and research. This article…

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…

An, Song A.; Tillman, Daniel A.; Boren, Rachel; Wang, Junjun – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014
Two classes of third grade students (n = 56) from an elementary school located on the western coast of the United States participated in this research study. A pretest-posttest control group design was utilized to examine changes between two groups of participating students' in mathematics achievement and dispositions, including beliefs about…

White, Diana; Donaldson, Brianna; Hodge, Angie; Ruff, Adam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
Math Teachers' Circles have been spreading since their emergence in 2006. These professional development programs, aimed primarily at middle-level mathematics teachers (grades 5-9), focus on developing teachers' mathematical problem solving skills, in line with the Common Core State Standards-Standards of Mathematical Practice. Yet, to date,…

Toh, Tin Lam; Kaur, Berinderjeet; Koay, Phong Lee – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
In this article, we explore the mathematical content knowledge of one entire cohort of pre-service teachers (N = 107) through analysing their performance in a Secondary Mathematics Audit that was developed for the International Comparative Studies in Mathematics Teacher Training that was initiated by the University of Plymouth. We study how their…

Robson, Daphne; Abell, Walt; Boustead, Therese – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Students who are preparing to study science and engineering need to understand equation solving but adult students returning to study can find this difficult. In this paper, the design of an online resource, Equations2go, for helping students learn to solve linear equations is investigated. Students learning to solve equations need to consider…

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…

Ortiz, Enrique – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
This longitudinal study analyzes middle school mathematics pre-service teachers' development of teaching goals. The Teaching Goals Inventory (TGI) (Angelo & Cross, 1993) was administered on four occasions: pre- and posttest summer 1, end posttest end of spring, and posttest end of summer 2. The data were analyzed for consistency and changes from…

Stout, Terra; Dwyer, Jerry; Wilhelm, Jennifer – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
Proofs were introduced to high school students by a college mathematician. Student interest and knowledge level were assessed through pre and post tests. There was a significant gain in student knowledge but not in interest. Student learning of proof concepts was clearly displayed, while common errors were often related to lack of algebra skills.…

Awofala, A. O. A.; Balogun, T. A.; Olagunju, M. A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
This study investigated the effects of modes of personalisation of instruction crossed with two levels each of verbal ability and cognitive style as moderator variables on the mathematical word problems achievement of 450 junior secondary Nigerian students. Personalisation was accomplished by incorporating selected information with students'…

Dwyer, Jerry; Moorhouse, Kim; Colwell, Malinda J. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2009
This paper describes an intervention at the 8th grade level where university mathematics researchers presented a series of lessons on introductory concepts in probability and statistics. Pre- and post-tests, and interviews were conducted to examine whether or not students at this grade level can understand these concepts. Students showed a…
