Developing Prospective Mathematics Teachers in Mexico: A Lesson on the Relationship between Integration and Differentiation
Juan Carlos Ponce-Campuzano
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 44, No. 7 (2013) pp. 996–1006
Mexican authorities and universities are actively working to improve mathematics teaching and learning across the education system. Thus, efforts are underway to raise the historically low performance in mathematics, which include theoretically...
The impact of a cash transfer program on cognitive achievement: The Bono de Desarrollo Humano of Ecuador
Juan Ponce; Arjun S. Bedi
Economics of Education Review Vol. 29, No. 1 (February 2010) pp. 116–125
Throughout Latin America, conditional cash transfer (CCT) programs play an important role in social policy. These programs aim to influence the accumulation of human capital, as well as reduce poverty. In terms of educational outcomes, a number of...
Derivative, Maxima and Minima in a Graphical Context
Antonio Rivera-Figueroa; Juan Carlos Ponce-Campuzano
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 44, No. 2 (2013) pp. 284–299
A deeper learning of the properties and applications of the derivative for the study of functions may be achieved when teachers present lessons within a highly graphic context, linking the geometric illustrations to formal proofs. Each concept is...
A Discussion on the Substitution Method for Trigonometric Rational Functions
Juan Carlos Ponce-Campuzano; Antonio Rivera-Figueroa
Mathematics and Computer Education Vol. 45, No. 1 (2011) pp. 44–51
It is common to see, in the books on calculus, primitives of functions (some authors use the word "antiderivative" instead of primitive). However, the majority of authors pay scant attention to the domains over which the primitives are valid, which...
A Web-based Training Programme in Comprehensive Reading
Hector Ponce; Mario Lopez; Juan Labra
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 4348–4357
In this paper we present the results of an experimental evaluation of a training programme for comprehensive reading. The training programme was constituted by a set of learning strategies supported by web-based application. The subjects were 4th...

On the Use of History of Mathematics: An Introduction to Galileo's Study of Free Fall Motion
Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano; Kelly E. Matthews; Peter Adams
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 49, No. 4 (2018) pp. 517–529
In this paper, we report on an experimental activity for discussing the concepts of speed, instantaneous speed and acceleration, generally introduced in first year university courses of calculus or physics. Rather than developing the ideas of...
e-Mentoring in Undergraduate Programs using blogs
Antonio Ponce-Rojo; Jorge Hernandez-Contreras; Pedro Moreno-Badajos; María de la Luz Perez-Padilla; Juan Gerardo Martinez-Borrayo
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2010 (Jun 29, 2010) pp. 2121–2126
This document presents the results of an analysis of the ways for using Blogs as a support tool for e-mentoring in higher education programs. It presents the identified advantages and disadvantages, especially in blended learning environments where...
