How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

One reason why mathematics is a compulsory educational subject globally is the fact that mathematical knowledge is applied in multiple and different areas outside mathematics. The PISA mathematics frameworks see mathematics as an essential tool for students beyond school as they face issues and challenges in the diverse contexts where mathematical...
Based on the unpredictable effect of context familiarity when students solve real-world problems, this work aims to analyse how certain contexts can be used by pre-service mathematics teachers in the representation and real-world verification of a first-order mathematical model in the classroom in the subject of Ordinary Differential Equations. Spe...
The COVID-19 pandemic revealed that many countries have failed to provide the general population with the cognitive tools to thoroughly understand and cope with a global health crisis. While scientists and leaders worldwide have struggled to discover ways to contain the spread of the virus, this difficult task has become overwhelming due to the lim...
Este trabajo describe una experiencia exploratoria sobre la implementación de una metodología de enseñanza-aprendizaje —y sus ideas constituyentes— para la Formación Inicial Docente, la cual pretende promover el desarrollo pre-profesional en futuros profesores de matemáticas a través de experiencias concretas que promuevan su desarrollo pre-profesi...
Introduction: Nursing professionals offer expert advice to patients. The latter requires relational skills. Literature indicates that these skills are not developed only from theoretical knowledge. Therefore, it is essential to equip nursing students with tools that assist them to develop these skills. Accordingly, role-play is considered an educat...
The mathematics education literature advocates the use of mathematics problems embedded in different contexts and therefore different mathematics curricula reflect this recommendation. A number of theoretical arguments support this, but the influence of context, and specifically the role of context familiarity, on students' performance is an issue...
This chapter contains short descriptions from contributors in ten countries (Chile, Denmark, France, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Korea, Singapore, Spain and USA) about some ways in which the PISA Framework and results have influenced thinking and action about mathematics education. In many countries, the PISA results have been a call to action, and ha...
