Çekmez, Erdem; Güler, Mustafa – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
There is a large body of literature concerning the potential of dynamic geometry software (DGS) in the problem solving process. However, questions regarding how teaching should take place to prepare students to use DGS as a heuristic tool in non-routine problem situations seem to be overlooked. To address this gap in the literature, the current…

Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
With the increased focus on computational thinking (CT) in education, it is important to investigate the affordances that CT may offer to support teaching and learning. This paper outlines five affordances of CT that may support elementary mathematics education, whose conceptualization was refined in a year-long study involving eight Grades 3-4…

Levi, Inessa; Chahine, Iman; Garrett, Lauretta; Wang, Haifeng – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
Difficulties in general education mathematics courses may be attributed to many factors, primarily low proficiency in symbol manipulation, a perception that mathematics is an area which eludes mastery, a lack of engagement and effective practice. Educational technology can be a powerful aid in overcoming these factors. This work describes the…

Trinter, Christine – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
The increase in availability of educational technologies over the past few decades has not only led to new practice in teaching mathematics but also to new perspectives in research, methodologies, and theoretical frameworks within mathematics education. Hence, the amalgamation of theoretical and pragmatic considerations in digital tool design…

Kosko, Karl; Ferdig, Richard – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
Tablets such as "iPad," "Android," and "Windows" devices have become ubiquitous in both the home and school settings. Adults and kids of all ages are using these tools and the associated apps to do everything from education to entertainment. Although there has been a positive relationship in the research between…

Abramovich, Sergei – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
The paper presents the use of spreadsheets integrated with digital tools capable of symbolic computations and graphic constructions in a master's level capstone course for secondary mathematics teachers. Such use of spreadsheets is congruent with the Type II technology applications framework aimed at the development of conceptual knowledge in the…

McGee, Daniel; Vasquez, Pedro; Cajigas, Jesus – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
The University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez (UPRM) has found that there are disadvantages to a semester long remedial mathematics course that is administered during the freshmen year to students with mathematics deficiencies in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs. Correspondingly, the UPRM designed and implemented an…

Armoni, Michal – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Abstraction is a key concept in CS, one of the most fundamental ideas underlying CS and its practice. However, teaching this soft concept to novices is a very difficult task, as discussed by many CSE experts. This paper discusses this issue, and suggests a general framework for teaching abstraction in CS to novices, a framework that would fit into…

Edwards, Clayton M.; Rule, Audrey C.; Boody, Robert M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Online education is increasing in popularity at the college and high school levels with several studies showing the comparability of e-learning and more traditional methods. Middle school students' ability to function well with this mode of instruction has not been established in the literature, although the circumstances of Generation Z growing…

Edwards, Clayton; Rule, Audrey – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Education in an online setting is an increasingly popular method of instruction. Previous studies comparing college or high school student performance in online and face-to-face courses found, in most cases, similar achievement between conditions. However, research is lacking regarding middle school students' academic performance and attitudes…

Smeal, Mary; Walker, Sandra; Carter, Jamye; Simmons-Johnson, Carolyn; Balam, Esenc – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Traditionally, mathematics has been taught using a very direct approach which the teacher explains the procedure to solve a problem and the students use pencil and paper to solve the problem. However, a variety of alternative approaches to mathematics have surfaced from a number of different directions. The purpose of this study was to examine the…

Bowers, Janet; Passentino, Gabriela; Connors, Curtis – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
Online video sharing websites have had a profound impact on the ways that students learn about the world, about the culture, and about mathematics. However, we would like to challenge McLuhan's assertion that changing the media has necessarily changed the message. In fact, the authors posit that the majority of online videos are seen as…
