What Kind of Content Knowledge do Secondary Mathematics Teachers Need?

The discrepancy between school and academic mathematics as well as the resulting problems for secondary mathematics teachers’ content knowledge (CK) have been well known since Felix Klein pointed out ... mathematical knowledge: The mathematics teacher requires a general knowledge of mathematics in order to be able to communicate with other mathematicians and also to establish his credentials; but he also

Women’s Representation in Mathematics Subfields: Evidence from the

Language as resource: a key notion for understanding the complexity of mathematics learning

The thinking of language as resource in mathematics education research has been more metaphorical than conceptual so far. This article provides grounds and reasons for the theorization of language as ... meaning in the immediacy of situations embedded in cultures of school mathematics and the official language of instruction. In the midst of social and personal relationships and diverse experiences in/of

Students’ and lecturers’ views on mathematics resources

Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications There is a general agreement that many ... students struggle with the transition from secondary to higher education, particularly in the context of mathematics modules. Lecturers often suggest or supply supplemental resources to give students the

The Fundamental Problem of General Proof Theory

I see the question what it is that makes an inference valid and thereby gives a proof its epistemic power as the most fundamental problem of general proof theory. It has been surprisingly neglected ... of general proof theory, a problem that the foundation of that discipline should try to tackle. It has been surprisingly neglected in logic and philosophy of mathematics. Proofs have certainly since

SKOPE-IT (Shareable Knowledge Objects as Portable Intelligent Tutors): overlaying natural language tutoring on an adaptive learning system for mathematics

Generalised Spin Structures in General Relativity

Generalised spin structures describe spinor fields that are coupled to both general relativity and gauge theory. We classify those generalised spin structures for which the corresponding fields admit ... are coupled to general relativity (GR) as well as gauge theory. In the absence of gauge fields, space–time transformations of spinors coupled to GR can be understood by considering pairs (g, ψ) of a

Using mobile technologies for mathematics: effects on student attitudes and achievement

The ubiquity of mobile devices together with its potential to bridge classroom learning to real-world has added a new angle to contextualising mathematics learning. This study investigated the ... by student interviews and end activity evaluations. Students' attitude to mathematics, as assessed by a mathematics attitude inventory, found no significant change for both groups except for the

First, in accordance with former ... tests in general. Our results therefore present the possibility that if a mathematics test was not originally built for diagnostic purposes but fitted by CDMs, main effects models might better explain its
