Darrah, Marjorie; Fuller, Edgar; Miller, David – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
This paper discusses a possible solution to a problem frequently encountered by educators seeking to use computer-based or multiple choice-based exams for mathematics. These assessment methodologies force a discrete grading system on students and do not allow for the possibility of partial credit. The research presented in this paper investigates…

Lee, Young-Jin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
With a rapid increase in the number of people who own a handheld device, such as an iPod, education researchers and administrators started looking for a way to use a handheld device to foster student learning. However, the current use of a mobile device in education is quite limited. With few exceptions, it is mostly used as a simple media player…

Polly, Drew; McGee, Jennifer R.; Sullivan, Christie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
While technology has potential to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics, research indicates that teachers struggle in their efforts to implement technology-rich mathematical tasks in their classrooms. Effective technology integration in mathematics requires teachers to be able to apply their classroom knowledge related to mathematics…

Khairulanuar, Samsudin; Nazre, Abd Rashid; Jamilah, H.; Sairabanu, Omar Khan; Norasikin, Fabil – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
This article reports the findings of an experimental study involving 36 primary school students (16 girls, 20 boys, Mean age = 9.5 years, age range: 8-10 years) in geometrical understanding of 2D and 3D objects. Students were assigned into two experimental groups and one control group based on a stratified random sampling procedure. The first…

Bouck, Emily – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Calculators are a controversial, yet widely used tool in mathematics education for all students and especially for students with disabilities. However, little research has explored calculators and students with disabilities. This paper explored the influence of calculator type (four-function and graphing) on the mathematical performance of…

Caudle, Kyle – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
In late October 1967, the USS Scorpion was lost at sea, somewhere between the Azores and Norfolk Virginia. Dr. Craven of the U.S. Navy's Special Projects Division is credited with using Bayesian Search Theory to locate the submarine. Bayesian Search Theory is a straightforward and interesting application of Bayes' theorem which involves searching…

Williams, Douglas; Ma, Yuxin; Prejean, Louise – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Educational robotics activities are gaining in popularity. Though some research data suggest that educational robotics can be an effective approach in teaching mathematics, science, and engineering, research is needed to generate the best practices and strategies for designing these learning environments. Existing robotics activities typically do…

Hardy, Michael – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
The goal of the X-Tech project was to enhance preservice teachers' perceptions of their preparedness to teach with technology. Results indicated that practically-oriented methods that meet a variety of technology related needs are viable for attaining such a goal. Further, it is particularly beneficial to have teachers use a variety of resources…

Kay, Robin; Kletskin, Ilona – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Pre-calculus concepts such as working with functions and solving equations are essential for students to explore limits, rates of change, and integrals. Yet many students have a weak understanding of these key concepts which impedes performance in their first year university Calculus course. A series of online learning objects was developed to…

Brewer, David Shane; Becker, Kurt – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
This research compared the effectiveness, in terms of mathematical achievement, of online homework to textbook homework over an entire semester for 145 students enrolled in multiple sections of college algebra at a large community college. A quasi-experimental, posttest design was used to analyze the effect on mathematical achievement, as measured…
