Creative Potential of Olympiad Problems
Samovol Peter ; Applebaum Mark ; Braverman Alex ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 10, issue 2, 2006, Pages 89~102
The present article is dedicated to discussing the methods of teaching schoolchildren to solve creative problems. A few types of Olympiad problems were chosen as a didactic content of the article. The relevance of the choice receives proper grounding. Explanations are followed by examples from pedagogic practice. The article was written for the use of school teachers and educationalists that are researching the problem of improving creative thinking with schoolchildren.
Situated Theory and Two Kinds of Mathematics Instructional Beliefs of Teachers
Zhang Xiaogui ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 10, issue 2, 2006, Pages 103~113
The mathematics instructional beliefs of a teacher include the exterior mathematics instructional beliefs and the internal mathematics instructional beliefs. These two kinds of beliefs are formed in two kinds of different situations. The situated theory thinks that beliefs are related with the situations; so, the two kinds of beliefs are showed in the different situations. The internal instructional mathematics beliefs effect on the actual mathematics instruction, they ought to be noticeable.
The Effective Use of Evaluation Results in Mathematics Education

In order to optimize a learning effect in mathematics, the results of the educational assessment must be effectively used by both teachers and students. The teacher using technology to provide students with performance feedback is becoming more prevalent in educational contexts worldwide but concern arises over the form of that feedback and the effects it has upon students' achievements. Also, feedback takes considerable time for teachers but their instructional time is limited. For these reasons, it is a significant matter how to select items effectively in order to give feedback to students after an assessment. In this study, we introduce the systematic selection method of feedback items using the regression analysis in order to provide effective feedback to students by teachers.

We study on the mathematical disposition of mathematically gifted students in the middle school of Korea. For this purpose, we use a tool which is a psychological test about disposition of mathematics disliking. The tool was developed by Kim et al. (2001: Studies on Exploring Mathematics Disliking Factors and Devising Tools to Analyze Students' Disliking Trends about School Mathematics. J. Korea Soc. Math. Ed. Ser. A Mathematical Education. 40(2), 217-239) to analyze the mathematical disposition of underachievers and we investigate the characteristic of it.
The Understanding of Improper Integration - A Case Study
Camacho Matias ; Gonzalez-Martin Alejandro S. ;
Research in Mathematical Education, volume 10, issue 2, 2006, Pages 135~150
Although improper integrals constitute a concept of great utility for Mathematics students, it appears that students are unable to assimilate this concept within the wider system of concepts they learn in their first year of Mathematics studies. In this paper we describe a competence model used in a study about the kind of understanding students possess about improper integral calculus when two registers of representation come into play. Competence will be considered as the coherent articulation of different semiotic registers. After analysing the results of a questionnaire, six students were selected to be interviewed on the basis of their overall results and the significance of their answers. For the interview, five original questions from the questionnaire were used together with a new question. In this article we will analyse, from our theoretical point of view, the work carried out by one student who was interviewed to show how our competence model works and we will discuss this formal competence model used.
