Abstract

Algebraic thinking is an important element in mathematics thinking and reasoning. All students experience a transition to algebraic thinking. It happens from elementary school grade V until junior high school grade VII. This study aims to describe the differences in algebraic thinking ability from the beginning of transition period, elementary school grade V, until the end of the transition period, junior high school grade VII. This research was a cross-sectional research using mixed method approach. The results showed that students' algebraic thinking ability at the beginning of the transition period and at the end of the transition period was in moderate criteria. The average score in algebraic thinking test at the end of the transition period, junior high school grade VII, was higher than the students in junior high school grade V, but the algebraic thinking ability of students in elementary school grade V did not have much different with the students of junior high school grade VII, that was in the moderate criteria.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore images of mathematics held by undergraduate students and possible influencing factors. The image of mathematics in this study was conceptualized as the mental representations or views of mathematics as undergraduate students experienced during their academic journey through the interaction largely at school. Pierre Bourdieu’s construct of symbolic violence served as the theoretical lens to evaluate the students' images of mathematics. The design of this study was explorative qualitative and interpretive. Semi-structured interview was used to generate data texts from three participants who were senior undergraduate students studying mathematics at an affiliated college of Tribhuvan University in Kathmandu. From the thematic analysis and interpretation of the textual data, four common themes emerged as images of mathematics held by the participants. These themes were – mathematics as difficult and abstract, as decontextualized, as mysterious subject, and as applicable in different fields. The influencing factors on the formation of these images were largely related to the curricular and pedagogical approaches from schools to university classes. These are conventional and disempowering methods of teaching, decontextualized curriculum and textbooks and other teaching learning resources, medium of instruction and nature of mathematics itself.

Abstract

This paper aimed to discuss the meanings, dimensions, and categories of teacher beliefs about teaching and learning mathematics. I reviewed the relevant literature about teacher beliefs in general, beliefs about mathematics, and beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning in particular. Based on the review of the literature, I outlined the meanings of teacher beliefs and conceptualized three dimensions of teacher beliefs – affective dimension, cognitive dimension, and pedagogical dimension. Then, I discussed three viewpoints to observe teacher beliefs – relational, institutional, and praxis lenses. I utilized these lenses to categorize belief constructs into three classes of beliefs about mathematics, teaching mathematics, and learning mathematics. These classes’ included-instrumentalist, constructivist, and integral beliefs. I addressed the pedagogical implications of these categorical beliefs in the end.

Abstract

Since the late 1990s, Indonesian mathematics educators have considered Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), the Dutch approach to mathematics instruction, to be the basis for educational reform. In the National curriculum development, RME has, therefore, been reviewed as among the theoretical references to the curriculum goals and content. In the present study, an analysis of the consistency between RME and the curriculum descriptors and contents in Indonesia is presented. This is supplemented with some comparisons to that in the Netherlands. Findings in this study revealed that while most of RME principles are reflected in the Indonesian curriculum, the descriptions were often very general and less explicit compared to the Dutch curriculum. They were also limited by the content-based approach as well as by the centralized decision making process of the contents to be taught which have been pre-determined at the national level. This study suggests future research to see how the curriculum may influence teachers’ enactment of RME at classroom level.

Abstract

Activities posing and solving a problem are important parts in mathematics, so the problem posing is an activity that was instrumental in mathematical thinking and become an important part in solving the problem. This type of research is research and development that aims to develop student worksheets through scientific approach with what if not strategy. The research method consists of stages: literature study, observation, interviews, development of student worksheets, assessment of two experts, and restricted trial to the eleventh grade students in SMAN 2 Cimahi, SMAN 3 Cimahi, and SMAN 4 Cimahi. Based on the findings, it was concluded that the student worksheets through scientific approach with what if not strategy load some activities including observing, questioning, trying, reasoning, and concluding. The activity of questioning using what if not strategy involves changing data, adding data, changing data with the same question, or changing question with the same data. The student worksheets also presented some contextual problems in accordance with the experience of students. After tested using worksheet, the improvement of student mathematical problem posing in the three schools was in moderate criteria.

Abstract

This research used design research. It was constructing a learning trajectory through handshake context to help students’ understanding of the Combination concept. This research used PMRI approach. The participants of the research were the students of 10th class SMA Negeri 15 Palembang. For retrospective analysis, the data were collected from a teaching experiment in form of student’s work, field notes, and interviews. The obtained data is a learning trajectory which is consists of 1) students do a role-play scene of the handshake activity; this activity supports students’ understanding that A do handshake with B is the same with B do handshake with A, which it indicates order does not matter in Combination. 2) students utilize their knowledge about factorial forms to analyze the general pattern of the Combination. 3) students solve problems related to the Combination concept to help them think about how to solve the similar problems in the daily life. The results of the study showed that the use of the handshake context can help students to understand of the Combination concept.
