International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 31, No. 1 (2000) pp. 53–60
Reviews what is known of the student experience with mathematical proof at university level. Suggests that while the least well-qualified graduates may have the poorest grasp of mathematical proof, the most highly qualified students may not...
Providing a Foundation for Deductive Reasoning: Students' Interpretations When Using Dynamic Geometry Software and Their Evolving Mathematical Explanations
Educational Studies in Mathematics Vol. 44, No. 1 (2000) pp. 55–85
Reports data from a longitudinal study of 12-year-old students' interpretations of geometrical objects and relationships when using dynamic geometry software. Focuses on the progressive mathematization of the students' sense of the software,...
International Journal of Educational Research Vol. 64, No. 1 (2014) pp. 81–91
In Japan it is in Grades 7–9, and primarily in geometry, that school students are introduced to the significance and methodology of proof in mathematics. As textbooks play a central role in everyday lessons in Japan, this paper presents an analysis...

Journal of Educators Online Vol. 7, No. 2 (July 2010)
Students in online and traditional classroom sections of an intermediate-level cost accounting course responded to a survey about their experiences in the course. Specifically, several items related to the instruction and learning outcomes were...
Journal of Computer-Based Instruction Vol. 9, No. 3 (1983) pp. 108–14
Discusses the key characteristics of clinical simulation, some developmental foundations, two current research studies, and some implications for the future of health science education. Investigations of the effects of computer-based simulation...
Learners' Use of Domain-Specific Computer-Based Feedback to Overcome Logical Circularity in Deductive Proving in Geometry
ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education Vol. 50, No. 4 (2018) pp. 699–713
Much remains under-researched in how learners make use of domain-specific feedback. In this paper, we report on how learners' can be supported to overcome logical circularity during their proof construction processes, and how feedback supports the...
Blended Learning vs. Traditional Classroom Settings: Assessing Effectiveness and Student Perceptions in an MBA Accounting Course
Journal of Educators Online Vol. 4, No. 1 (January 2007)
A survey was conducted of Master of Business Administration (MBA) students in an accounting class at a university in the Northern United States to compare students' assessments of course effectiveness and overall satisfaction with the course. One...
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education Vol. 13, No. 4 (2006) pp. 168–174
Designing successful learning environments entails drawing on theoretical perspectives on learning while, at the same time, being cognisant of the affordances and constraints of the technology. This paper reports on the development of a software...
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education Vol. 17, No. 4 (2010) pp. 177–182
In this paper, we will outline some results of an NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) funded project that aimed to establish a professional development network with an open-source mathematical software--GeoGebra--in ...
Translating Research Into Practice: Voluntary Reporting of Medication Errors in Critical Access Hospitals
Journal of Rural Health Vol. 20, No. 4 (2004) pp. 335–343
Context:Low service volume, insufficient information technology, and limited human resources are barriers to learning about and correcting system failures in small rural hospitals. This paper describes the implementation of and initial findings from ...
