Nasution, Andrea Arifsyah; Lukito, Agung – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015

In teaching proportion, the teachers usually give the students a formal formula, such as cross-multiplication, without providing them the meaning of proportionality. Thus, the students just apply it in order to solve proportional problems. However, it does not connote that they understand what proportionality means. In this paper, the authors…

Cheng, Lu Pien – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2013

In this paper the teachers' learning journey on designing a mathematics problem that involves a real-life context is reported. This is part of a larger project undertaken in a primary school in Singapore where the teachers were engaged in planning, observing and critiquing mathematics lessons to investigate teaching and learning. These unique…

Hudson, Peter; Matthews, Kelly – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012

Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas in university settings; however this may be the result of attitude rather than aptitude. There is widespread agreement that quantitative problem-solving is essential for graduate competence and preparedness in science and other STEM subjects. The research…

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…

Isoda, Masami – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011

What is the product of Lesson Study? Lesson Study is a scientific activity for teachers based on the methodology introduced in the 1880s. In Japan, research topics for Lesson Study are usually shared through the regular revisions of the curriculum and the research movement of several societies. As a result of teachers' efforts to overcome…

Inprasitha, Maitree – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011

In Thailand, the Center for Research in Mathematics Education (CRME) has been implementing Japanese Lesson Study (LS) since 2002. An adaptive feature of this implementation was the incorporation of four phases of the Open Approach as a teaching approach within the three steps of the LS process. Four phases of this open approach are: 1) Posing…

White, Allan Leslie – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010

Newman (1977, 1983) defined five specific literacy and numeracy skills as crucial to performance on mathematical word problems: reading, comprehension, transformation, process skills, and encoding. Newman's Error Analysis (NEA) provided a framework for considering the reasons that underlay the difficulties students experienced with mathematical…

Bautista, Debbie; Mulligan, Joanne; Mitchelmore, Michael – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009

Young Filipino children are expected to solve mathematical word problems in English, a task which they typically encounter only in schools. In this exploratory study, task-based interviews were conducted with seven Filipino children from a public school. The children were asked to read and solve addition and subtraction word problems in English or…

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,…

Dahsah, Chanyah; Coll, Richard K.; Sung-ong, Sunan; Yutakom, Naruemon; Sanguanruang, Sudjit – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008

The international literature suggests students frequently resort to the use of formulae when solving stoichiometry problems without understanding the concepts. In prior work we identified Thai student alternative conceptions and ability to solve numerical problem for stoichiometry. The results indicate that many Thai students also hold alternative…

Cyclical Nature of Problem-Solving Process: Case Study of Trainees in a Teachers' Training Institute

Yong, Koay Chen; Saleh, Fatimah – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008

This study explores the mathematical problem-solving process of trainee teachers in a teachers' training institute. This research adopts a constructivist perspective that views learning mathematics as a process of constructing meaningful representation and knowledge as being constructed by the individual. The research methodology employs the case…
