White, Diana; Carruth, Nicholas; Eastes, Joshua; Klyve, Dominic; Otero, Daniel; Scoville, Nicholas A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This study investigates changes in instructor teaching tendencies, instructor's perception of impact on student learning and dispositions, and methods of implementation of Primary Source Projects (PSPs). PSPs are curricular modules designed to teach core mathematical topics from primary historical sources rather than from standard textbooks. In…

Stewart, Sepideh; Epstein, Jonathan; Troup, Jonathan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
In this study, we analysed a mathematician's teaching journals on eigenvalues and eigenvectors in a first-year linear algebra course. The research team employed Tall's ["How humans learn to think mathematically: Exploring the three worlds of mathematics." Cambridge University Press] three-world model of embodied, symbolic and formal as a…

Hillock, Poh Wah; Khan, R. Nazim – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This article is a follow-up to an earlier paper on the mathematics support learning tutorial programme (SLT), an intervention programme at The University of Queensland that targets students considered to be at risk of failing Calculus and Linear Algebra I, the first tertiary level mathematics subject at The University of Queensland. The first…

Cronin, Anthony; Intepe, Gizem; Shearman, Donald; Sneyd, Alison – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper explores analysis of feedback data collected from student consultations at two mathematics support centres at universities in Australia and Ireland. Unstructured text data was collected over six years and includes qualitative data on student queries collected during the consultations from mathematics and statistics related subjects.…

Seaton, Katherine A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
To date, the way that academic misconduct is manifested in undergraduate mathematics coursework has been unexamined in the literature, with the consequence that policy and preventive education can fail to address it appropriately. This paper describes the particular features of the responses expected in mathematical tasks and provides concrete…

Kontorovich, Igor' – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This study embarks on the question in the title with the construct of epistemological status, which pertains to the solver's satisfaction with the way and the degree to which their solution had fulfilled their intellectual and psychological needs in a particular problem situation. The construct is used to hypothesize that a solver's decision to…

Yani, Bridgette; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper focuses on the students who are registered in the University of Pretoria's academic development programme, named the Four-year Programme (FYP). The programme was introduced as a gateway for students who are underprepared but have the potential to succeed and then continue their studies into the mainstream science programmes. Our…

Rowlett, Peter; Smith, Edward; Corner, Alexander S.; O'Sullivan, David; Waldock, Jeff – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
A literature review establishes a working definition of recreational mathematics: a type of play which is enjoyable and requires mathematical thinking or skills to engage with. Typically, it is accessible to a wide range of people and can be effectively used to motivate engagement with and develop understanding of mathematical ideas or concepts.…

Ponce Campuzano, J. C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Undergraduate students usually study Laurent series in a standard course of Complex Analysis. One of the major applications of Laurent series is the classification of isolated singular points of complex functions. Although students are able to find series representations of functions, they may struggle to understand the meaning of the behaviour of…

Campbell, Anita – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Social media platforms such as WhatsApp are increasingly used in formal education settings. However, there is little research to guide educators on how to set up effective peer tutoring groups on social media platforms, particularly between tutors and tutees who rarely meet face-to-face. In the context of a WhatsApp mathematics tutoring project,…

Verzosa, Debbie Marie B.; De Las Peñas, Ma. Louise Antonette N.; Aberin, Maria Alva Q.; Garces, Len Patrick Dominic M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
This paper presents apps designed to assist students in understanding and developing proofs in geometric theorems. These technologies focus on triangle congruence, triangle similarity and properties of parallelograms. Focus group discussions and initial testing of the apps revealed that the apps offered a more engaging medium for learning proving…

Gero, Aharon; Levin, Ilya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The invention of the computer has led to the establishment of a new research paradigm, computation, which has recently become more and more popular in scientific exploration. However, computation is not well represented in high school and university curricula in science and engineering, although it applies to a wide range of disciplines beyond…

Tisdell, Christopher C. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Recently, Robin claimed to introduce clever innovations ('wrinkles') into the mathematics education literature concerning the solutions, and methods of solution, to differential equations. In particular, Robin formulated an iterative scheme in the form of a single integral representation. These ideas were applied to a range of examples involving…

Wares, Arsalan; Elstak, Iwan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The purpose of these notes is to provide examples of large-scale geometry problems that have the potential to promote "constructive struggling" in high-school geometry classrooms. These problems are suitable for being explored in a dynamic geometry environment. The notes also contain brief sketches of solutions to the two problems.

Lim, Kien H. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
An exploratory study was conducted to investigate the use of magic activities in a math course for prospective middle-school math teachers. This research report focuses on a lesson using two versions of math magic: (1) the "5-4-3-2-1-½ Magic" involves having students choose a secret number and apply six arithmetic operations in sequence…
