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…

Panaoura, Areti – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Students' cognitive performance on any mathematical concept is related with the respective self-beliefs on understanding it and on using strategies in order to overcome cognitive obstacles. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the role of various aspects of apprehension (perceptual, operative and discursive) in geometrical figure…

Norton, Stephen – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Pedagogical reform in Australia over the last few decades has resulted in a reduced emphasis on the teaching of computational algorithms and a diversity of alternative mechanisms to teach students whole number computations. The effect of these changes upon student recording of whole number computations has had little empirical investigation. As…

Bicknell, Brenda; Hunter, Roberta – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Moving from primary school (Year 6) to the next stage in schooling (Year 7 intermediate or middle school) can provide challenges for students, teachers, and parents. A study was carried out to investigate these challenges with a focus on mathematics for 65 students from six different urban primary schools in New Zealand. Qualitative data were…

Mainali, Bhesh Raj; Key, Mary Beth – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
This article describes a professional development initiative for fifteen mathematics teachers in the use of dynamic geometry software GeoGebra. A four-day introductory workshop was given in Nepal to provide an overview of GeoGebra and its possible integration in the teaching/learning of secondary school mathematics there. Teachers' impressions and…

Man, Yiu-Kwong; Leung, Allen – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
In this paper, we introduce a new approach to compute the partial fraction decompositions of rational functions and describe the results of its trials at three secondary schools in Hong Kong. The data were collected via quizzes, questionnaire and interviews. In general, according to the responses from the teachers and students concerned, this new…

Lai, Mun Yee; Murray, Sara – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
In mathematics education, there has been tension between deep learning and repetitive learning. Western educators often emphasize the need for students to construct a conceptual understanding of mathematical symbols and rules before they practise the rules (Li, 2006). On the other hand, Chinese learners tend to be oriented towards rote learning…

Dogbey, James; Kersaint, Gladis – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
This study investigated the development of the concept of variables in middle grades mathematics textbooks during four eras of mathematics education in the United States. Findings revealed that each of the middle grades mathematics curricula examined used variables, but in varied proportions and levels of complexity. Formal definitions for…

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…

Muir, Tracey – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Parental involvement in the form of "at-home" interest and support has a major influence on pupils' educational outcomes and attitudes. Many parents, however, feel uninformed about current educational practices and how they can be more involved with their child's learning. A number of initiatives have been implemented internationally to…

Cheng, Qiang; Wang, Jian – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
As a key concept in early mathematics curriculum, number sense is crucial for children's learning of other mathematics concepts. An earlier curriculum with a strong focus on number sense development presumably helps children perform better in mathematics later on. Chinese students outperformed their United States (U.S.) peers on number sense at…

Tekin, Ayse; Kula, Semiha; Hidiroglu, Caglar Naci; Bukova-Guzel, Esra; Ugurel, Isikhan – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
The purpose of this qualitative research is to examine the views of 21 secondary mathematics student teachers attending Mathematical Modelling Course regarding mathematical modelling in a state university in Turkey; reasons why they chose this course and their expectations from the course in question. For this reason, three open-ended questions…

Hunter, Roberta – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
This paper adds to a discussion initiated by Askew (2007) about two contrasting views of scaffolding; as a "tool for results" and a "tool-and-result". The wider study the article is drawn from took place in four primary classrooms with Pasifika students within a low socioeconomic setting. Two classroom episodes drawn from one…

Kensington-Miller, Barbara – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2012
Professional development is important for all teachers, and in low socio-economic schools where the challenges of teaching are greater this need is crucial. A model involving a combination of one-on-one peer mentoring integrated with group peer mentoring was piloted with experienced mathematics teachers of senior students in low socio-economic…

Lowrie, Tom; Diezmann, Carmel M.; Logan, Tracy – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2011
The ability to decode graphics is an increasingly important component of mathematics assessment and curricula. This study examined 50, 9- to 10-year-old students (23 male, 27 female), as they solved items from six distinct graphical languages (e.g., maps) that are commonly used to convey mathematical information. The results of the study revealed:…
