Arican, Muhammet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigated preservice middle school mathematics teachers' (PSTs) understanding of proportional and nonproportional relationships and their abilities to differentiate these relationships from each other. The PSTs' abilities to interpret and represent proportional and nonproportional situations and solution strategies were also…

Jao, Limin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For pre-service teachers (PSTs) who have been exposed to traditional approaches, teacher education courses can be a revelatory experience in their development as educators. This study explores if Canadian upper elementary/lower secondary (grades 4-10) PSTs change their beliefs about mathematics teaching as a result of taking a mathematics methods…

Alajmi, Amal Hussain – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study reports on the algebraic generalization strategies used by elementary and middle/high school pre-service mathematics teachers in Kuwait. They were presented with 9 tasks that involved linear, exponential, and quadratic situations. The results showed that these pre-service teachers had difficulty in generalizing algebraic rules in all 3…

Daher, Wajeeh M.; Shahbari, Juhaina Awawdeh – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Engaging mathematics students with modelling activities helps them learn mathematics meaningfully. This engagement, in the case of model eliciting activities, helps the students elicit mathematical models by interpreting real-world situation in mathematical ways. This is especially true when the students utilize technology to build the models.…

Gal, Hagar; Lin, Fou-Lai; Ying, Jia-Ming – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
This study uses classroom videotapes to examine the phenomenon of students who are left behind during whole-class teaching. Zooming in via these videos enabled us to analyze these classroom situations by means of a compact, multi-perspective set of theories--van Hiele theory, conceptualization, and visual perception. The analysis provided a…
