Groves, Susie – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
It has long been recognised that successful mathematical learning comprises much more than just knowledge of skills and procedures. For example, Skemp (1976) identified the advantages of teaching mathematics for what he referred to as "relational" rather than "instrumental" understanding. More recently, Kilpatrick, Swafford and…

Chan, Chun Ming Eric; Ng, Kit Ee Dawn; Widjaja, Wanty; Seto, Cynthia – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Mathematical modelling is increasingly becoming part of an instructional approach deemed to develop students with competencies to function as 21st century learners and problem solvers. As mathematical modelling is a relatively new domain in the Singapore primary school mathematics curriculum, many teachers may not be aware of the learning outcomes…

Lew, Hee-Chan; Son, Hong-Chan – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011
The objective of the present study is to describe how students discover rules underlying a certain phenomenon under question and the process in which they mathematically justify such discovery by way of utilizing tables and graphs in the use of the cell reference function of spreadsheets when a problem is not easily solved through simple symbol…

Eric, Chan Chun Ming – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
The newly revised mathematics curriculum in Singapore has recently factored Applications and Modelling to be part of the teaching and learning of mathematics. Its implication is that even children should now be involved in works of mathematical modelling. However, to be able to implement modelling activities in the primary mathematics classroom,…

Fong, Ng Swee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2006
This paper describes an activity which attempts to change the discourse of a mathematics classroom with the specific intent to help children who may have difficulties with mathematics and ways of communicating. Ten 8-year old children in the Learning Support Programme were engaged in an open-ended geometric task. In this paper a brief description…

Gek, Chua Kwee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
What do pre-service teachers learn from their observation stint during school experience attachment? This paper will present insights into the cognitive contents of the pre-service teachers' reflection log. Preliminary analyses revealed that different cultures and pedagogical practices were observed to be in operation in different school contexts.…

Kaur, Berinderjeet – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1992
A study determined the abilities of students to interpret and represent graphs by asking 15-year-old female students (n=10) to write stories to accompany any 3 of 12 graphs presented. Results indicated that the students were not able to accurately relate real life situations to graphical forms. (MDH)
