On the design of instruments for integrating general educational technology course and educational technology in mathematics education course
Cho, Han-Hyuk ; Song, Min-Ho ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 843~864
To get an undergraduate degree from mathematics education department, a student not only take a general educational technology course from education department, but also take an educational technology in mathematics education course from mathematics education department. We believe that these two courses can be integrated for preparing better mathematics teachers. For this purpose, we design an educational technology tool called JavaMAL microworld, and study strategy to integrate two courses harmoniously. This kind of approach is good for internationalization of researches on mathematics education by Korean researchers since most SSCI journal prefer an integrated approach in the educational technology related papers. In short, integrating general educational technology course and educational technology in mathematics education course is not only good to student but to professors. But just integrating two courses is not enough. Students must understand the needs and the usefulness of educational technology tool in the learning and teaching of mathematics, and must have such experience from their mathematics courses.
A Study on the Comparison of Classes Conducted by Modified Moore Method
Kim, Seong-A ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 865~876
We have examined the modified Moore methods that were applied to college mathematics courses in several researches. We introduce, compare and analyze the concrete teaching methods that the researchers conducted in various modified Moore methods, and propose the appropriate form of modified Moore method most suitable for the present situations of the mathematics and related departments in Korea.

Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 877~889
Mathematical modelling is a useful method for reinterpreting the real world and for solving real problems. In this paper, we introduced a theory on mathematical modelling. Further, we developed a mathematical model of the H1N1 influenza with Excel. Then, we analyzed the model which tells us what role it can play in an appropriate prediction of the future and in the decision of accompanied policies.
An exploration of alternative way of teaching the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus through a didactical analysis
Kim, Sung-Ock ; Chung, Soo-Young ; Kwon, Oh-Nam ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 891~907
This study analyzed the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus from the historical, mathematical, and instructional perspectives. Based on the in-depth analysis, this study suggested an alternative way of teaching the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
The Study for Problems of course evaluations in mathematics education
Moon, Kwon-Bae ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 909~922
This paper deals with disparities in course evaluation between general and major courses of mathematics education. We provide concrete evidences which verify the mismanagement of the evaluation system and can be an impetus to a more rational one. We indicate the direction to which professors of mathematics education should head. Also those statistics obtained from the author's teaching of mathematics education and related subjects for twelve years are provided for the fact-finding of and improving the erroneous evaluation system.
The Application of Integer Ratio in Making Eastern and Western Notes
Lee, Gyou-Bong ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 923~937
Explain concretely how to apply some integer ratios in making Eastern and Western notes, and show numerically that the chromatic scale coming from the upholding Pythagoras method in Western and the Sambunsonikbub in Eastern are perfectly equal even if they are far from geographically.
Golden Ratio and Obesity of Korean University Students
Choi, Seung-Hoe ; Lee, Kum-Won ; Yu, Yong-Jin ; Kim, Yong-Heon ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 939~947
The Golden ratio which was started to be use by Eudoxos, Greek mathematician, is being used as a tool to explain beauty in various fields like architecture, art, society, nature and so on. In addition, people not only use the golden ratio, also use obesity to consider a standard of beauty. This study's subjects are students of H university. We researched their Golden ratios of their whole body, upper body and lower body. Also, to research their obesity levels, we used Obesity degree, Waist-hip ratio and Percent body fat. According to different features of the subjects, we study differences between the golden ratio and obesity and how the golden ratio of body affects obesity.
The Case Study of High School Students' Understanding of the Concept of Parameter In A Computer Algebra Environment
Cho, Yeong-Ju ; Kim, Kyung-Mi ;
Communications of Mathematical Education, volume 24, issue 4, 2010, Pages 949~974
The purpose of the study was to investigate how students' understanding was formed for solving the algebra problems involving parameters in a computer algebra environment. The teaching experiment has been conducted with 6 high school students. As a result, students studied the parameter in different roles such as placeholder, changing quantity, unknown and generalizer. The results indicate that a computer algebra environment offers opportunities for algebra activities that may support the development of understanding of the concept of parameter.
