Authoring Themselves as Mathematical Learners: Students' Experiences of Learning to Learn High School MathematicsDownload
High school mathematics students often complete homework and study for unit tests without support to consider how these actions could contribute to their mathematical learning. However, students can, through the process of learning to learn mathematics, to bring into view how they learn...
LEARNING THROUGH GAMES Students can develop a meaningful understanding of mathematical ideas through games before they move toward abstractions (Dienes, 1971). Ernest (1986) identified three educational uses of games: gain skill-based fluency, develop conceptual understanding, and refine problem...
• Assessment’s purpose is primarily as evidence to improve future teaching and learning in math class. • Reform in classroom-based mathematics assessment has not followed pace with reforms in teaching and learning. • Categories of assessment as formative (assessment for and as learning) and...
This study explores Grade Seven students’ experiences of doubt and certainty in mathematics. During nine months of (bi-monthly) sessions, students responded to several mathematical prompts; their interactions with each other and with the teacher- researcher were video-taped, transcribed, and...
In this dissertation, I propose that network theory offers a useful frame for informing mathematics education. Mathematical understanding, like the discipline of formal mathematics within which it is subsumed, possesses attributes characteristic of complex systems. As the techniques of network...
Our research is based on the premise that the starting place for effective communication begins with understanding parent perceptions of mathematics teaching and learning today. In this study, we asked, What are parents’ experiences with and perceptions of curriculum change? What is the...
