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

This study proposes a learning strategy of derivatives and integrals (LSDI) based on specialized forms of generalization strategies to improve undergraduate students’ problem solving ofderivative and integral. The main goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of LSDI on students’ problem solvingofderivative and integral. The samples of this study were 63 undergraduate students who took Calculus at Islamic Azad University of Gachsaran, Iran. The students were divided into two classes based on their marks in the pre- test of derivative and integral. The results indicated that there was a significant difference between the achievements of students in experimental and control groupsafter treatment. Thus, the findings reveal that using generalization strategies improves students’ achievements in solving problems of derivative and integral.

Abstract

This experimental case-study examined the performance of convenient sampling of fourty-five Year 9 students in solving word problems involving percentage from two classes in one government secondary school in Brunei Darussalam, using Bar Model as a solving strategy. Data was gathered quantitatively through written tests in the form of six word problem items as pre-test and post-test.  The mean score of the pre-test was 0.93 indicating that the performance of the participating Year 9 students in solving word problems involving percentage was low prior to intervention. Intervention lessons produced a gain in the post-test mean to 2.87.  Although the mean of post-test marks is still lower than the passing mark of the test, paired-sample t-test provided evidence of significance, thus proving that Bar Model Method had positive effect to the performance of word problem involving percentage. Evidence also indicated an increase in the students’ overall marks  from pre-test to post-test, with almost all except two students failed the pre-test to twenty-six students achieving marks above passing mark of 3 in post-test.  Item-by-item analysis showed increase in correct responses in every item in post-test, even those with no attempts in pre-test.  These provided further evidence that there is overall improvement in students’ performance in word problems related to percentage after the use of Bar Model as intervention.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate prospective elementary teachers’ (PsETs) mathematical and didactical knowledge of comparing decimals. Thirty-two fourth-year PsETs from an elementary school teacher education study program in Indonesia participated in this study. Each PsET is asked to solve a mathematical task of comparing decimals presented in the hypothetical teacher task (HTT), and then the PsETs use their mathematical knowledge to build their didactical knowledge collectively (pairs). Their mathematical and didactic knowledge is analyzed based on the anthropological theory of the didactic, especially praxeology. The findings indicate that PsETs have various techniques to solve the comparing decimal task, but some of them find it difficult to explain those techniques.

Abstract

In this article we explore gender differences in the valuing of mathematics by Hong Kong primary and secondary students have been investigated. The participants were 1081 upper primary school (Grades 5 and 6) and secondary school (Grades 8 and 9) students from various metropolitan Hong Kong schools. An Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was conducted to investigate the existence of gender differences on a number of values components. Statistically significant differences between boys’ and girls’ valuing of mathematics learning were found on three of the nine components derived via a Principal Component Analysis (PCA).

Abstract

Contrast to the shared task at the beginning of mathematics lesson, jumping task is the central part of the teaching that uses of higher order thinking skills (HOTs) in Japan.  In Indonesia, the curriculum 2013 revised stress on how to use HOTs in the mathematics lesson, the daily life context and collaborative learning.  This paper aims to investigate the role of jumping task in supporting students learning Percent at 5th grade in Palembang. This research uses design research as the method. PMRI theory is used in finding context and content. Also, lesson study for learning community (LSLC) that uses of collaborative learning is used in the learning process.  Results show that student with higher competence can solve jumping tasks while the student with the low level has a problem with Percent concept. However, after guided using collaborative learning student then can solve the HOTs problems or jumping task.

Abstract

Curriculum review is a long process. Typically, the people responsible for these activities are one or two people (coordinators) who are responsible for this and it can be burdensome. Authors propose a new computer-based method for mathematics curriculum review by advancing the use of Learning Designs Maps (LDMaps). The LDMaps have already been developed by authors to document expected mathematics teaching and learning experiences as expected by curriculum. The proposed method can disperse the process allowing the responsible coordinators to conduct the simple task of collating available LDMaps for the review. In this paper, an example of mathematics curriculum review in counting mathematics subjects classification entries is presented.

Abstract

This research aims to examine the improvement of mathematical communication skills of the students who learn using the team quiz learning model. This is an experimental research with pretest-posttest-control group design. The population of this study is all of the seventh-grade students in one of the junior high schools in Banda Aceh. We use a simple random sampling technique to obtain two classes as the research samples. The data were collected using tests of mathematical communication skills and self-efficacy questionnaires. The statistical tests used in this study were the paired t-test and two-way ANOVA. The results show that: (1) The improvement of the students’ mathematical communication ability in the team quiz class is higher than the conventional class; (2) The improvement of the students’ self-efficacy in team quiz class is higher than the conventional class; (3) There is no interaction between the learning model and the student level towards the students' mathematical communication ability; and (4) There is no interaction between the learning model and the student level towards the students’ self-efficacy.

Abstract

Algebra is a foundation for mathematics reasoning and complex problem-solving which then requires mathematics teachers to have adequate proficiency to make their students understand about it. The mathematics teachers in the Maldives, however, lacked both the algebraic content and pedagogical knowledge. This study aims to present a mathematics professional development training curriculum designed to address the issue of the teachers’ performance in algebra. There were five participants involved in this study who teach mathematics in the sixth grade of elementary school. Desimone’s conceptual model for professional development was used to guide the mathematics professional development for algebra teachers discussed in this paper. This mathematics professional development was found to improve the algebraic content and pedagogical knowledge of the participants, which in turn improved student performance.
