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…

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…

Cooley, Laurel; Vidakovic, Draga; Martin, William O.; Dexter, Scott; Suzuki, Jeff – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2016
In this report we examine students' perceptions of the implementation of carefully designed curriculum materials (called modules) in linear algebra courses at three different universities. The curricular materials were produced collaboratively by STEM and mathematics education faculty as members of a professional learning community (PLC) over…

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…

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'…

Lai, Mun Yee; Auhl, Gregory; Hastings, Wendy – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
Many teacher education programs are criticized for their failure to prepare pre-service teachers to utilize and transfer their knowledge of content and educational principles into authentic classroom teaching. Studies also consistently report that pre-service teachers' ability to identify what is noteworthy about a mathematics classroom situation…

Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Bossé, Michael J.; Chandler, Kayla – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
While it is well recognized that students are prone to difficulties when performing linguistic-to-algebra translations, the nature of students' difficulties remain an issue of contention. Moreover, the literature indicates that these difficulties are not easily remediated by domain-specific instruction. Some have opined that this is the case…

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…

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…

Wachira, Patrick; Pourdavood, Roland G.; Skitzki, Raymond – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
Recent mathematics education reform calls for efforts to create collaborative and student-centered environments, where students have opportunities to reason and construct their understanding as part of a community of learners. Mathematics instruction should provide students opportunities to engage in mathematical inquiry and meaning making through…

Ampadu, Ernest – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
This article explores junior high school students' views regarding what it takes to be successful in mathematics. Qualitative and quantitative methods were employed to collect and analyse data, describe and interpret junior high school students (12-14 years) perceptions about what it takes to be successful in mathematics. 22 students from four…

Lavy, Ilana; Zarfin, Orly – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2013
In this study we explored the effects of providing ninth-grade students with the chance to take part in decision making concerning the mathematics level they would be assigned to in high school. Decisions concerned their self-competence regarding their mathematical abilities, their learning goals and the class atmosphere. The students were taught…
