Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Wessel, Lena; Redder, Angelika – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
To what degree can multilingual students profit from bilingual teaching approaches, even when they lack experience in the academic or technical register in their home languages? This study explores this research question in a mixed methods design for a German/Turkish bilingual intervention aimed at fostering conceptual understanding of fractions…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Revina, Shintia; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Past studies have raised caution over educational transfer in mathematics education. The idea that an instructional approach to teaching and learning of mathematics can truly be universal and implemented across all cultures was challenged, as some aspects of the approach might be too closely bound up with the specific context where it was…

Olsher, Shai; Even, Ruhama – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study examined the changes that a group of nine Israeli 7th grade mathematics teachers, who collaborated on editing the textbook they used in class, chose to make in the textbook. Data sources included the project website (using a modified wiki-book platform), the group meetings, interviews with the teachers, individual papers written by the…

Saadati, Farzaneh; Cerda, Gamal; Giaconi, Valentina; Reyes, Cristian; Felmer, Patricio – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study was designed to examine predictors of instructional beliefs related to problem solving that influence mathematics in-service teachers' practices in the Chilean context. A total of 713 in-service mathematics teachers from various elementary schools participated in the survey study during 2015 and 2016. Results showed that teachers'…

Yang, Xinrong; Kaiser, Gabriele; König, Johannes; Blömeke, Sigrid – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research on teacher noticing in the field of mathematics education research has increased in the last decade; however, only a few studies have investigated the social and cultural impact on teachers' noticing. This paper describes results of an international comparative study on (in-service) mathematics teachers' professional noticing in China and…

Yang, Der-Ching – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigated the performance of 790 fourth graders from Taiwan for judging the reasonableness of a computational result by using corresponding methods pertaining to whole numbers. A number-sense web-based two-tier diagnostic test was used to assess the number-sense performance of the fourth graders who participated in this study. The…

Baranovich, Diana-Lea; Fong, Pei-Chin; Hutagalung, Fonny – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The study aims to have a better understanding on the parental scaffolding in mathematics homework among preschoolers in the Malaysian context. This is achieved by exploring to what extent Malaysian parents provide scaffolding to their preschoolers in mathematics homework interactions. Investigations about the strategies employed by the parents…

Di Martino, Pietro; Gregorio, Francesca – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Tertiary transition in mathematics appears to be an insurmountable struggle for many students, including for high achievers in secondary school. The high dropout rates in many Western Countries represent a big issue from an individual and social point of view. It appears particularly significant to analyse this phenomenon in the context of the…

Davidson, Aylie; Herbert, Sandra; Bragg, Leicha A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Attention to mathematical reasoning in curriculum standards is part of an international trend, but identifying and understanding reasoning continues to challenge teachers. We report on one component of an Australia-wide initiative supporting teachers to implement innovative pedagogies. This paper contains insights from design research that focused…

Foster, Colin; Inglis, Matthew – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Mathematics teacher continuing professional development (CPD) is widely recognised to encompass more than attending courses and engaging in formal activities with colleagues in school. Teachers' professional reading is an under-researched aspect of CPD, which takes place out of view, but which has the potential to shape teachers' beliefs and…

Gueudet, Ghislaine; Pepin, Birgit; Restrepo, Angela; Sabra, Hussein; Trouche, Luc – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper is concerned with the development of e-textbooks. We claim that analysis (and design) of e-textbooks requires the development of a specific frame. Digital affordances provide particular opportunities (e.g. in terms of interactions between users) that require specific considerations for their analysis, as teachers and students use them…

Shinno, Yusuke – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper reports on combining semiotic and discursive approaches to reification in classroom interactions. It focuses on the discursive characteristics and semiotic processes involved in the teaching and learning of square roots in a ninth grade classroom in Japan. The purpose of this study is to characterize the development of mathematical…

Urhan, Selin; Dost, Senol – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Model-eliciting activities are problem-solving activities that differ from traditional problems as they include non-routine, open-ended, and complicated real-life situations with various solutions (Lesh & Doerr, 2003). According to Lesh, Hoover, Hole, Kelly and Post (2000), a model-eliciting activity must follow certain principles, namely, the…
