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…

Özgen, Kemal; Aydin, Mehmet; Geçic, Mehmet Ertürk; Bayram, Baran – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate eighth grade students' skills in different problem-posing situations. Problem-posing situations include free, semi-structured and structured problem-posing situations. The study was conducted using case study methodology, which is within the scope of descriptive research. The study was conducted with…

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…

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…

Hurst, Chris; Huntley, Ray – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Multiplicative thinking is a critical component of mathematics which largely determines the extent to which people develop mathematical understanding beyond middle primary years. We contend that there are several major issues, one being that much teaching about multiplicative ideas is focussed on algorithms and procedures. An associated issue is…

Tularam, Gurudeo A.; Machisella, Patrick – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Traditional teaching approaches are generally teacher-directed, where students are taught in a manner that is conducive to sitting and listening. It is often argued that these approaches may not provide students with valuable learning skills, and rather that non-traditional approaches to teaching and learning might better endow students with such…

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…

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…

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…

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)…

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…

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…

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…
