    Abstract

    Abstract : Although researchers have studied the contribution of diagrams to learning mathematics based on various perspectives, the meta-analysis of relevant studies is lacking. The purpose of this study is to advance the discussion of epistemological assumptions underlying various approaches to the relationship between diagrams and mathematics learning. To this end, we reviewed theoretical and empirical studies about the contribution of diagrams in mathematics learning, focusing on how they account for the relationship between diagrams as signs and mathematics. The review has led to a proposed framework that categorizes the perspectives on diagrams as signs in pertinent research into structure-based, context-based, and material-based perspectives. We further identified differences in the epistemological background upon which studies from the three perspectives are based and the way the perspectives describe the relationship between diagrams and mathematics learning. The framework was useful identifying the multidimensionality of mathematics learning related to diagrams as well as the use of theoretical lenses by researchers depending on specific aspects of mathematics learning.

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to propose a framework for analyzing a mutually corresponding relationship between gestures and diagramming in constructing making mathematical meanings. To this end, this study analyzes the case of mathematics classes which aimed at recognizing the relationship between average and a statistical distribution through activities using diagrams. Findings indicate that several students performed informal mathematical thinking using gestures and diagrams about some diagrams without numerical information. Further, our analysis captures the way gestures and diagramming reveal new mathematical meanings and elaborates the role of gestures and diagramming to refine the meanings. This study also discusses in what ways researchers and teachers can use the framework to better understand various types of gestures and diagrams in mathematical thinking.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This study aims to explore how ‘sensitively’ Korean middle school students consider realistic contexts while solving problematic problems. Six pairs of word problems were collectively administered to 85 students in third grade during a mathematics lesson, and follow-up interviews were conducted with 11 students. The survey found that the proportion of students who solved the problems by sensitively considering real-world knowledge was not high (22%). In the follow-up interviews, the students reported that they would think of mathematics separately from real-world situations. An analysis of the students’ unrealistic reactions to real-life problems has implications for the practice of school mathematics regarding real-life word problems.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This study investigated seven pre-service teachers’ (who studied analysis) conceptions about infinitesimals, infinite numbers, and explanation methods of limits. Some pre-service teachers thought that infinitesimals and infinite numbers existed. The pre-service teachers who believed that infinitesimals existed explained limits by relying on infinitely small quantities, as did those who believed that infinitesimals did not exist. Some pre-service teachers did not understand the sentences in which quantifiers were used, and they failed to identify statements that contained quantifiers using the Archimedean property of analysis. During interviews, some pre-service teachers demonstrated an intuitive level and did not accept the meta-rules of judging mathematical statements based on axioms and theorems. Their discourse differed from that of analysis in the existence of mathematical objects, endorsed narratives, and meta-rules. This study analyzes the phenomenon of pre-service teachers applying infinitesimals despite having studied standard analysis, focusing on the incommensurability between discourses. This finding can inform teacher education about the curriculum and instruction of analysis.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This paper aims to present how video production is impacting the classroom, mathematics students and teachers in Brazil, as well as mathematics knowledge production developed with this media. Digital video Festivals with mathematical content are being implemented in Brazil, locally and nationally. One of them is Mathematics Education Digital Video Festival, organized by the Research Group in Informatics, Other Media and Mathematics Education, GPIMEM. In this century, video is earning space as a pedagogical approach in either face-to-face or distance education, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, considering social distance, the use of videos became an imposed reality to students and teachers. Students and teachers with different level of experience or age started to realize possible positive effects regarding the reorganization of the classroom by the presence of mathematical videos. However, other aspects provided negative effects: for example, inequalities in homes and mobile access impacted equal opportunity to all. This paper will summarize the use of mathematical video in the last century and discuss what is happening this century. We will revise some research developed, mainly in Brazil, that shows how the classroom does not fit in a parallelepiped model. Internet, videos and software combined are "things" that have agency and are co-participating in learning and teaching mathematics. The organization of festivals of videos have become important not only in Brazil but elsewhere in many formats either nationally or internationally, in a way to create challenges, exhibitions, cultural mix that aim to show mathematics applications to the general public. In particular, this article reports on parts of a qualitative research that investigated participants of the first edition of the referred national festival. As a result, we look for the comprehension of following the discussions of qualitative transformations regarding the use of videos in classrooms and mathematics knowledge production, as this new setting suggests that digital technologies arrived in XXI century to collaborate with learning. This article will be supported by a theoretical perspective on technology based on the notion of humans-withmedia. In such a perspective knowledge is seen as being constructed by humans and different media and different artifacts. This article shows how such a perspective may help us to cope with the classroom of the XXI century, including the classroom that during the pandemic include students' and teachers' homes.

    Abstract

    Abstract : Characterised by increased automation and digitalisation of work processes, the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) has displaced and redesigned many existing jobs, and will create new occupations that are currently non-existent. To prepare a future workforce that is adaptive amid a volatile employment landscape, schools should provide the necessary learning experiences to help students today develop transferrable competencies, which encompass deep conceptual understanding of domain-specific knowledge and 21st century competencies in the cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal domains. In this paper, we study this possibility in the context of mathematics learning and propose a constructivist learning design (CLD) that affords students to engage in deeper learning processes. In the proposed CLD, students first work collaboratively to solve a complex problem targeting a math concept that they have yet to learn, before being engaged in instruction that builds upon their solutions in the teaching of the concept, and practices that reinforce these ideas. Testing CLD in mathematics learning at secondary level via a quasi-experimental design, we found out that (1) CLD facilitates deeper learning as it encouraged students to apply their cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal competencies, and (2) CLD students (n=23) outperformed their Direct Instruction counterparts (n=18) on mathematical conceptual understanding and transfer. Overall, this study suggests that the CLD has the potential to cultivate competencies that allow students to transfer in novel situations, rendering it as a possible learning environment to better prepare students for the 4IR.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This study aims to reveal how diagramming in the everyday mathematics classroom supports students’ mathematical learning, based on the Châteletean perspective. To this end, we analyzed the diagramming of two 9th grade students who participated in the task of proving the Pythagorean theorem through diagrams in a geometry lesson. In particular, we focused on the epistemic distance as well as the material directness between the students and the diagrams. As a result, the students discovered mathematical ideas while they engaged in direct or indirect diagramming; they actualized virtual mathematical objects and relationships that were not visible in the given diagrams. During diagramming, the epistemic distance between the students and the diagrams was also dynamically changing. The findings suggest that diagramming in mathematics classrooms is not just a static representational activity, but an indeterminate and mobile engagement, which materially interacts with diagrams at varying degrees of epistemic distance.

    Abstract

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to propose socio-critically open-ended problems (SCOEPs) as a novel theoretical framework for nurturing students' critical mathematical literacy while respecting diverse values embedded in transscientific problems. First, we outline the socially open-ended problem─which is of current interest to Japanese researchers of critical mathematics education─and describe its nature and significance. Second, we derive issues from current research on social justice and ethics in mathematics education using a literature interpretive methodology and build a theoretical framework of SCOEPs to develop socially open-ended problems. We present several potential examples of classroom practices based on the SCOEPs framework that were implemented in Japanese schools to explore the impact of these questions on student's engagement and thinking processes. We found evidence that the objectives of nurturing both social judgment skills within an ethical framework, as well as fostering mathematically and socially diverse solutions for authentic problems are integrated in SCOEPs. The framework can be described as the coexistence of the process of fostering social decision-making through mathematical thinking and the process of critically considering mathematical thinking to achieve social justice. This proposal has significant implications for the future directions of mathematics education in the 21st century.

    Abstract

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to analyze the changes in pre-service teachers’ noticing through an elementary mathematics methods course along with a practicum. For this purpose, the comments pre-service teachers made on an entire video-based mathematics lesson were collected three times over the semester. Their comments were analyzed in terms of topic, actor, stance, evidence, and alternative strategy. The results showed that the pre-service teachers’ noticing abilities were slightly changed after learning mathematical content and pedagogy related to teaching elementary mathematics. Substantial changes in their noticing occurred after a four-week practicum and subsequent discussions on their own lesson planning, implementation, and reflections. This study has implications for designing a mathematics methods course to develop teacher expertise and refining a teacher noticing analytic framework.

    Abstract

    Abstract : In this paper we report on a case study involving four Chinese students; the aim of the study was to develop a conceptual framework for investigating student participation in a collaborative task in mathematics. Building on previous research on student participation, we defined student participation in a collaborative task in mathematics as the process of taking part in student interactions and task completions. A video recording and transcript of students involved with collaborative task in mathematics were analyzed. Four categories (initiation, response, evaluation, and non-interactive) were created for analyzing the students' interactions. The four students showed different approaches to communicating with other group members. The content of the group's discussion was examined in terms of the negotiation process. By looking at the content of the group's discussion, the process how the group work on the task could be revealed. We identified that students showed involvement in the group discussion by proposing and revisiting topics. It was found that through forming an interactive pair, students might be able to take up the leading role in working on the task and controlling the conversation of the group.

    Abstract : The 21st Century is characterised by technological advances which is the Fourth Industrial Revolution, climate change, and the COVID19 pandemic, for examples. The role of mathematics in each of these phenomena has been central and crucial. As such, it is an opportune time now to take stock of events that are (re-)shaping the world, so that we can better facilitate mathematics education in schools. Three themes are identified and discussed in this article, namely the convergence of mathematics pedagogical approaches, mathematics proficiencies, and students' mathematical wellbeing.

    Abstract

    Abstract : We examined the relationships between mathematics achievement and collaborative problem solving, which has been emphasized as the 21st century skills. Focusing on moderating effects of attitude toward working with others, we analyzed the PISA 2015 data for binational comparison between Korean and the U.S. Random-intercept linear models - where the intercepts vary across schools while slopes are fixed across schools - were applied to the data including 5,545 students in Korea and 5,564 in the U.S. The findings showed the positive linear relationships between mathematics achievement and collaborative problem solving as expected, but the slope was remarkably higher in the Korean model. However, we found no significant moderating effects of attitude toward working with others on the relationship between mathematics achievement and collaborative problem solving. Particularly, students in Korea and the U.S. are likely to have similarly low scores in mathematics achievement when their collaborative problem solving scores are low. However, Korean students would have even higher mathematics achievement scores if students in Korea and the U.S. have similarly high collaborative problem solving scores. The findings suggest the necessity for further scrutinies on attitude toward working with others and research on teaching and learning the 21st century skills in an integrated way.

This study developed a learning activity and simulation using the frequency tree diagram and implemented them. The first-year high school students (n=14) were able to construct the concept of conditional probability through a frequency perspective of sequentially obtaining the conditional relative frequency, the limit of the relative frequency, and the theoretical probability. The implications for teaching and curriculum were presented.

    Abstract

    Abstract : World is divided into six continent and within each, there are many separate regions called “countries”. Some are called “first world”, trying to dominate the others whom are known as “third world” and rarely, people enquire about the “second world” in between (We are aware of this political/ideological division as aftermath of the World War II and the notion of “three worlds” suggested by Mao Zedong)! The claim is that this division has nothing to do with “ranking” the countries, but it is culturally weird to hear “ordinal numbers” and not giving them “values” of either “priority” or “inferiority”! And in the midst of everything, the world faced a horrible phenomenon called Covid-19 that soon became a pandemic! Within a short period of time, the whole world, despite of any ranking, felt how fragile and hopeless is in the battle with this monster! And yet, it is soon to expect that decision makers who govern the world, must be aware that without well- being of everyone, there is no other way to defeat the virus. This is an irony! Isn’t it? No matter how wealthy or poor, dominant or dominated, so- called developed or developing the countries are, in our view, they only have one solution to this devastating problem that is to know that the world is connected and no part of it is in joy while others are in pain! Hopefully, we are entering a new era of deeper understanding of what humanity is! A big lesson to be taught by the opportunity that Covid-19 created for human beings! Thus far, Corona and Covid-19 pandemic is not just a treat but a wake- up call for humanity to believe that “If you’ve no sympathy for human pain, the name of human you cannot retain!”

    Abstract

    Abstract : This study investigates the way students perceive and express change in an exponential situation with different reasoning methods for continuous change - for example, students, who use chunky reasoning, construct a new function representing the change of exponential distance-time function. Using case study approach, the study presents the results of teaching experiments conducted on three high school freshmen students. It may be difficult to generalize the results since the sample size was limited; however, the findings have the potential to inform researchers in mathematics education about students’ conceptual knowledge of continuous change. The information about the process of constructing the speed-time function from the distance-time function based on the students' understanding of continuous change may also be helpful in interpreting student thinking in differential concept.

    Abstract : This study evaluates the factorial structure of the Mathematics Anxiety Scale for Students (MASS) using data from 1,272 high school students. To this end, we used the mathematical anxiety rating scale for middle and high school students developed by Ko and Yi (2011). An exploratory factor analysis of the response data from the first sample (636 students) eliminated 31 of the 65 items of the original MASS, generating the MASS-Short Version (MASS-SV), a mathematical anxiety scale for high school students with four factors-mathematical problem solving, mathematical learning methods, mathematics test, and mathematics class. A confirmatory factor analysis of the MASS-SV using the responses of the second sample (636 students) revealed that the model fit indices were acceptable and did not differ significantly from those of the original MASS. The MASS-SV derived from this study is a valid and reliable mathematical anxiety measurement tool for high school students; it also helps the students save time and provide quality responses. Future research on the progress of math anxiety in students should identify trends in math anxiety or the relationship between variables such as achievement, attitude toward mathematics, and career path in relation to math anxiety.

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to develop a curriculum of school mathematics and artificial intelligence regarding max-min problems. We also developed a coding environment for a designed curriculum that can be accessed and utilized at codingmath.org without any additional installation. The curriculum uses an evolution strategy-based gradient descent method founded on a school probability and statistics curriculum with an experiment using dice; this curriculum is designed to work when the function is not differentiable and is ultimately linked to a calculus-based gradient descent method. The coding environment, in which even middle school students can visualize the min-max problem of f(x, y), uses a three-dimensional function graph with minimal coding inputs and explores the gradient descent process using a two-dimensional Python animation. This study, which is an attempt to combine mathematical problem solving and computational thinking in the context of max-min problems, further discusses ideas regarding the ways to integrate AI and coding in mathematics education.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This research aims to investigate the teachers’ pedagogical design capacity for multicultural mathematics education. For the purpose, we collected teaching plans developed by inservice teachers who registered in a multicultural mathematics teacher education course of graduate level. The analysis focused on how the teachers reorganized mathematical contents and adapted instructional strategies in order to achieve the instructional goals. The analysis shows that the teachers applied the ‘Principle of Equity’ most frequently compared to other principles of multicultural mathematics education. This means that it is necessary to provide teacher education programs to enhance teachers’ understanding of ethnomathematics and to develop PCK to reorganize curricula contents by integrating ethnomathematics. Second, it was observed that the teachers experienced difficulty in adapting the levels of multicultural mathematics education coherently. This suggests that when teachers tried to design lessons from a new perspective, they often turned back to teacher-centered teaching practices that they had been used to. Third, in the teaching plans adapting the ‘Principle of Transformation’, although Level 4 appeared most frequently, mathematical contents and social issues were placed separately without being integrated. Although the course helped the teachers recognize the relationship between mathematics and human practice, the teachers might keep their previous beliefs about mathematics as academic knowledge separated from human life. Thus, this limitation may persist without a change of the teachers’ beliefs regarding the cultural origin of mathematics. Based on the results, we draw implications for the future development of multicultural mathematics teacher education.

    Abstract : In order to understand the research trends in mathematical reasoning since 2000, this study analyzed 262 papers published in seven KCI journals and 381 papers published in five SSCI journals via topic modeling. The overall research topics were compared and contrasted between domestic journals and international journals. A more detailed analysis was conducted by considering different publication periods. The results showed that the main domestic research topics included, in order, geometry proof, mathematical justification, problem solving, pattern generalization, proportional reasoning, and statistical reasoning, whereas the main international research topics included, in order, proof and argument, teacher education, geometric reasoning, pattern generalization, problem solving, and statistical reasoning. The results of this study also showed that gifted students represented the most popular research target of domestic studies, while the process of mathematical reasoning was the main focus of international studies. This paper closes with implications on research targets including teachers, attention to the mathematical reasoning process, diversity of research topics, and new research topics that may guide future research on mathematical reasoning.

    Abstract

    Abstract : Research into assessments in mathematics education has broadened from summative assessments focusing on students achievement to those focusing on students’ cognition, curriculum, teaching and learning, teacher knowledge and quality, and affective domains. Considering these changes in assessment research, we examined the characteristics of domestic assessment research in mathematics education by comparing 237 articles published in KCI journals with 857 articles published in SSCI journals from 2000 to 2020 August. We used LDA topic modeling to examine research trends over time. The findings indicated that there were different keyword distributions by period between domestic and international mathematics education journals. There were nineteen research topics in both journals; five topics were similar while nine topics were different. In addition, the hot topics in international and domestic mathematics education journals were found to be curriculum assessment and student competency assessment, respectively. Based on these findings, we discussed practical implications for the development of assessment research in domestic mathematics education.

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to analyze students’ units-coordinating activities and operations in their proportion problem solving, and to investigate how quantitative structures corresponding to ratios are constructed with different levels of units coordination. As a result of our clinical interviews with three seventh grade students who were at units coordination stage 2 and 3, we found that the use of operations relevant to whole number division was crucial to solving mixed-juice problems and only the stage 3 students assimilated the problem situations involving ratios as three-levels-of-units structures consisting of composite units of indefinite numerosity. Given the importance of units coordination in solving proportion problems, implications for further research are discussed.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This study conducted historical and mathematical analyses of the composition of continuum and infinite division. Regarding the results of the historical analysis, first, it can be seen that mathematicians struggled with the problems related to Zeno’s “paradox of plurality” in the composition and infinite division of the continuum. Second, historically, infinite small appeared frequently. Third, the problem of continuum, which was a geometric problem, was not explained by geometry alone, and mathematical answers to this problem became possible after the straight line became homomorphic with the real set, following the arithmetization of mathematics. Through mathematical analysis, Zeno’s “paradox of plurality”, which includes questions about the composition and infinite division of a continuum, could be explained depending on the uncountability of real numbers and the countable additivity of Lebesgue measure. In addition, it was confirmed that it is inappropriate to divide a straight line to a point. The historical and mathematical analyses of this study suggest that students may have cognitive difficulties when dealing with the composition and infinite division of a continuum in relation to area, volume, and integral in school mathematics. The continuum is a concept closely related to the limit and calculus of school mathematics, and the historical · mathematical analysis of this study could serve as a foundation for teaching and learning plans of limits and calculus.

    Abstract

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to explore the possibility of interconnection between non-fractional representation and non-circular decimal representation in irrational teaching and learning of school mathematics and to examine the possibility of field application. First, through the analysis of previous studies, it was found that the core of understanding irrational concepts is the intuitive perception of convergence and the inference of acyclicity. And through mathematical analysis, we confirmed that finite decimal sequences and approximate fractional sequences should be learning contents. In this regard, we applied engineering tools in teaching and learning activity of irrational numbers and analyzed the process by which engineering tools become learners’ mathematical tools and then learning occurs, that is, instrument genesis. As a result, in the activity of finding finite fractions of square roots, students gained a meaningful understanding by focusing on the meaning of square root symbols and square roots as objects from inputting functions and operations and using drag. And in the activity to solve the task ‘Can a graph cross a grid point?’, Students could infer the acyclicity of the decimal representation of irrational numbers by observing the approximate fraction as the slope. Thus, this study is expected to be a basic reference of teaching and learning of irrational numbers to construct a mental image of real numbers completeness axiom.

    Abstract

    Abstract : This study analyzed the features of the IB"s mathematics assessment and proposed methods to settle the mathematics process-focused assessment in schools. According to the difficulties of teachers investigated in the previous studies, solutions were derived by the documents related to assessment in the IB MYP and DP curriculum and interviews with teachers in IB schools. As a result, research and policy were proposed to support teachers. First, design an assessment frame that has the curriculum competency as an assessment element, and suggest the approaches toward reflecting competencies. Second, provide examples of typical assessment tasks and scoring rubrics, and the achievement level of each assessment criterion to detail the task, and engage students in the TSC process. Third, present an objective assessment method to produce the result and a feedback method. Fourth, to improve the fairness of teachers’ autonomous assessment, provide external organization inspections, teacher training, and feedback on teacher assessment. Additionally, it is suggested that criterion-referenced assessment, assessment framework development study, change of student"s view on the assessment, and reduction of teacher’s workload would be necessary as conditions for mitigating teachers’ difficulties.

    Abstract

    Abstract : The function concept arose from analyzing the relationships between co-varying quantities to model change. From the covariation perspective of function, we analyzed the responses of 13 pre-service teachers to the tasks to interpret rates of change or reason the corresponding change of one quantity from the changes of the other using the given rate of change; by using the rate of change, a change of one quantity can be directly deduced from the given change of the other quantity. Most of the pre-service teachers reasoned the change correctly. However, a portion of pre-service teachers reflexively calculated the formula of the function and the difference between the two values of the function. In addition, some teachers revealed their insufficient understanding of the slope of the linear function. The conceptions of pre-service teachers help elucidate what and how students might learn and might not learn about functions from the school mathematics curriculum.

    Abstract

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to examine the outcomes of the National Assessment of Educational Achievement (NAEA) 2015-2018 when the 2009 Revised National Curriculum was applied and suggested for future curriculum revisions. The characteristics of students’ academic achievement were analyzed based on the results of evaluating test items developed by the achievement standards of the 2009 Revised National Curriculum. The analysis showed that students’ academic achievement was low in the ‘Function’, ‘Probability and Statistics’, and ‘Geometry’ domain. In addition, many achievement standards could be mastered only by the above average group of students. Accordingly, it is necessary to reinforce customized teaching and learning activities in relation to achievement standards which were under achieved. To improve the achievement characteristics, it is necessary to specify detailed achievement standards and to strengthen the linkage between achievement standards.

    Abstract

    Abstract : Although researchers have studied the contribution of diagrams to learning mathematics based on various perspectives, the meta-analysis of relevant studies is lacking. The purpose of this study is to advance the discussion of epistemological assumptions underlying various approaches to the relationship between diagrams and mathematics learning. To this end, we reviewed theoretical and empirical studies about the contribution of diagrams in mathematics learning, focusing on how they account for the relationship between diagrams as signs and mathematics. The review has led to a proposed framework that categorizes the perspectives on diagrams as signs in pertinent research into structure-based, context-based, and material-based perspectives. We further identified differences in the epistemological background upon which studies from the three perspectives are based and the way the perspectives describe the relationship between diagrams and mathematics learning. The framework was useful identifying the multidimensionality of mathematics learning related to diagrams as well as the use of theoretical lenses by researchers depending on specific aspects of mathematics learning.
