Graybeal, Christy D. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Whether they are acknowledged or not, resources such as textbooks, curriculum guides, assessments, and professional development programs present messages about what is most important for students to learn and how students can best learn this. At times teachers feel obligated to enact these messages, but at other times they feel free to ignore…

Richardson, Kerri; Schwartz, Catherine Stein; Reynolds, Anne – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
In this article we discuss an open-ended problem involving quadrilaterals that we continually offer each semester. The task has been posed to undergraduate and graduate students in methods and problem solving classes. The task involves drawing all possible four sided figures with corners at the dots. A four by four array of dots is included in the…

Kovarik, Madeline – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Although mathematics is visual language of symbols and numbers it is also expressed and explained through written and spoken words. For students to excel in mathematics, they must recognize, comprehend and apply the requisite vocabulary. Thus, vocabulary instruction is as critical in content areas as it is in language arts. It is especially…

Nillas, Leah A. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Qualitative research methods were employed to investigate characterization of preservice teachers' mathematical understanding. Responses on test items involving algebraic relationships were analyzed using with-in case analysis (Miles and Huberman, 1994) and Pirie and Kieren's (1994) model of growth of mathematical understanding. Five elementary…

Panasuk, Regina M.; Beyranevand, Matthew L. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Learning about linear relationship with one unknown, middle school students may often demonstrate a certain degree of proficiency manipulating algebraic symbols. When encouraged, they can verbalize and explain the steps they perform, thereby demonstrating awareness of the procedures with symbols according to fixed rules. It is well known that…

Yeo, Joseph B. W.; Yeap, Ban Har – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Many educators believe that mathematical investigation involves both problem posing and problem solving, but some teachers have taught their students to investigate during problem solving. The confusion about the relationship between investigation and problem solving may affect how teachers teach their students and how researchers conduct their…

Namukasa, Immaculate K.; Gadanidis, George – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
In what unique ways can mathematics tasks contribute to pre-service teachers' understanding of subject matter and pedagogy? And what school mathematics tasks can usefully be included in a pre-service program? To contribute to answering these questions, we report on the selection and choice criteria for mathematics tasks that we use in an…

Skoumpourdi, Chrysanthi – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
The aim of this paper is to investigate the ways in which the number line can function in solving mathematical tasks by first graders (6 year olds). The main research question was whether the number line functioned as an auxiliary means or as an obstacle for these students. Through analysis of the 32 students' answers it appears that the number…

Nzekwe-Excel, C. – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
Background and Rationale: Student withdrawal and non-completion in institutions have been an issue of considerable concern. The lack of mathematical ability has been identified as a factor resulting to non-completion in higher institutions. Several students in higher education approach mathematics with a lot of anxiety. This has created the need…

Toptas, Veli – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2010
It is widely accepted that learning becomes more enduring and deeper if geometric concepts are presented in various orientations and dimensions in textbooks. The purpose of this study was to examine how geometric concepts are presented in the Turkish elementary mathematics curriculum and the textbooks in terms of sizes and orientations. For this…
