Muir, Tracey – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2019
The concept of flipping the classroom and flipped learning is becoming increasingly more popular in secondary schools. Although more prevalent in tertiary teaching, flipped learning has a number of affordances that may address the challenging demands of teaching secondary mathematics. While enactments of the approach vary, flipped learning…

Kim, Hyung Won – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2018
Research demonstrates a disjuncture between the practices encouraged by teacher education programs and what teachers actually do in the classroom. It also informs us that the cognitive and social characteristics of individual teachers such as their attitudes, beliefs and knowledge contribute to their classroom practices. This qualitative study…

O'Keeffe, Lisa; White, Bruce – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2017
The role and function of the mathematics textbook has been widely discussed since its inclusion in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science study (TIMSS) in the late nineties. It is a common feature in many classrooms worldwide and has been identified as an important vehicle for the promotion of curricula. However, there has also been…

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…

Çelik, Derya – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
Linear algebra is one of the most challenging topics to learn and teach in many countries. To facilitate the teaching and learning of linear algebra, priority should be given to epistemologically analyze the concepts that the undergraduate students have difficulty in conceptualizing and to define their ways of reasoning in linear algebra. After…

Daher, Wajeeh; Anabousy, Ahlam – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
The study of function transformations helps students understand the function concept which is a basic and main concept in mathematics, but this study is problematic to school students as well as college students, especially when transformations are performed on non-basic functions. The current research tried to facilitate grade 9 students'…

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…

Brendefur, Jonathan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2014
Much research has been conducted on how elementary students develop mathematical understanding and subsequently how teachers might use this information. This article builds on this type of work by investigating how one high-school algebra teacher designs and conducts a lesson on exponential functions. Through a lesson study format she studies with…
