Jarvis, Daniel; Butreau, Chantel; Doran, Charles; Novoseltsev, Andrey – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018

In this paper, we report on a case study that focused on innovative uses of CAS technology in university mathematics teaching and assessment. The study involved a site visit to the University of Alberta campus (June 2015) during which: interviews were conducted with five mathematics faculty members and seven mathematics students; math lectures…

Morais, Adolfo; Barragués, José Ignacio; Guisasola, Jenaro – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015

This work describes the design and evaluation of a proposal to use Classroom Response Systems (CRS), intended to promote participative classes of Mathematics at University. The proposal is based on Problem Based Learnig (PBL) and uses Robert's six hypotheses for mathematical teaching-learning. The results show that PBL is a relevant strategy to…

Pellegrini, Marco – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014

Phase changes in water are experienced in everyday life but students often struggle to understand mechanisms that regulate them. Human thermal comfort is closely related to humidity, evaporative heat loss and heat transfer. The purpose of the present study is to assist students in the evaluation of human thermal comfort. Such a goal is achievable…

Sinclair, Margaret – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010

Students in a graduate geometry class used items such as paper, ribbon, plastic spheres, cardboard tubes, and markers to carry out investigations in spherical geometry. The hands-on activities helped students develop a new appreciation of geometry as a study of shape and space; however, the difficulty of subduing wayward elastics and drawing lines…

Lavicza, Zsolt – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) is becoming increasingly important and widespread in mathematics research and teaching. In this paper, I will report on a questionnaire study enquiring about mathematicians' use of CAS in mathematics teaching in three countries; the United States, the United Kingdom, and Hungary. Based on the responses…

Bringslid, Odd – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The projects Xmath (Bringslid and Canessa, 2002) and dMath (Bringslid, de la Villa and Rodriguez, 2007) were supported by the European Commission in the so called Minerva Action (Xmath) and The Leonardo da Vinci programme (dMath). The Xmath eBook (Bringslid, 2006) includes algorithms into a wide range of undergraduate mathematical issues embedded…

Peschke, Julie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The culture of the young may, in fact, be a harbinger enticing us to follow a pathway from which will emerge the re-conceptualized educational practices of this new century. The culture of those older will, no doubt, strive to maintain the more golden aspects of their now historical learning experiences. One of the tasks of all educators, but…

Heck, Andre; Kedzierska, Ewa; Ellermeijer, Ton – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

In this paper we report on the sustained research and development work at the AMSTEL Institute of the University of Amsterdam to improve mathematics and science education at primary and secondary school level, which has lead amongst other things to the development of the integrated computer working environment Coach 6. This environment consists of…

Wigmore, Angela; Hunter, Gordon; Pflugel, Eckhard; Denholm-Price, James; Binelli, Vincent – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

Speech technology--especially automatic speech recognition--has now advanced to a level where it can be of great benefit both to able-bodied people and those with various disabilities. In this paper we describe an application "TalkMaths" which, using the output from a commonly-used conventional automatic speech recognition system,…

Ketamo, Harri; Alajaaski, Jarkko – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

A revising/replenishment study course in basic mathematics is experienced as being almost a necessity at the beginning of technology studies at the Tampere University of Technology, Pori, Finland. This is to avoid early dropouts in actual engineering mathematics courses. Experimental research on factors explaining successful revision of…
