Bridging the Gap between Mathematical Conjecture and Proof through Computer-Supported Cognitive Conflicts
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA Vol. 27, No. 1 (2008) pp. 1–10
In many mathematical problems, students can feel that the universality of a conjecture or a formula is validated by their experiment and experience. In contrast, students generally do not feel that deductive explanations strengthen their conviction...
A computer game as a context for non-routine mathematical problem solving: The effects of type of question prompt and level of prior knowledge
Computers & Education Vol. 52, No. 3 (April 2009) pp. 530–542
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of type of question prompt and level of prior knowledge on non-routine mathematical problem solving. A computer game was blended within the pattern reasoning tasks, along with question prompts,...
Effects of Worked Examples Using Manipulatives on Fifth Graders' Learning Performance and Attitude toward Mathematics
Journal of Educational Technology & Society Vol. 18, No. 1 pp. 264–275
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of worked examples using virtual manipulatives on the learning performance and attitudes of fifth grade students toward mathematics. The results showed that: (1) the utilization of non...
Effects of the Multiple Solutions and Question Prompts on Generalization and Justification for Non-Routine Mathematical Problem Solving in a Computer Game Context
EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education Vol. 10, No. 2 (April 2014) pp. 89–99
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of solution methods and question prompts on generalization and justification of non-routine problem solving for Grade 9 students. The learning activities are based on the context of the frog...
Developing and Validating a Media Literacy Self-Evaluation Scale (MLSS) for Elementary School Students
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET Vol. 10, No. 2 (April 2011) pp. 63–71
The arrival of new media technology has the potential to radically change education. It has become important for both academics and practitioners to understand the behavioural intentions of students towards media technology. Many scales have been...
