As a consequence of these reflections, there is a tendency for mathematics teachers training to contemplate didactic sequences so that teachers consider the complexity of the mathematical object to be taught in the didactic sequences that they design and implement with their students. In this line, the first objective of this work is to determine the role of mathematics taught in the assessment guide of work practice used by the guidance teachers of the Mathematics Education Career at the University of Cuenca; while the second objective is to describe an instruction process whose objective is to incorporate in this guide the assessment of the mathematics taught, in particular the assessment of the incorporation of the complexity of the mathematical object to be taught. The results show that the guide does not value the mathematics taught and that in the didactic sequences implemented by future teachers according to it, they do not consider the complexity of the object to be taught.</span></div> 2022-10-24T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Adriana Breda, Eulalia Calle, Vicenç Font Mathematical Competence and Its Self-Perception in University Students of Education Degrees 2022-06-10T10:29:47+02:00 Bartolomé Pizà-Mir Maria Suñé-Vela <p>The mathematical competence of the aspiring primary teachers was evaluated from a test designed for primary school students. One in three students does not have the necessary competence to take advantage of the training offered to them at university. Of the 124 students analysed, the average was 5.6 points out of 10. They showed lower performance in the curricular blocks of measurement and geometry. Their self-perception of their knowledge in different blocks of the curriculum was also evaluated and it is evident that one in three students is aware of their low mathematical competence, while only one in ten underestimated their competence in math.</p> 2022-10-24T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Bartolomé Pizà-Mir, Maria Suñé-Vela Teaching models in preuniversity Mathematics and their relation with preservice teachers ages 2022-09-07T10:27:13+02:00 Julián Roa González José Luis Díaz Palencia <div><span lang="EN">This paper addresses the mathematical education received during the pre-university stage based on the teaching-learning processes experienced by 225 students from the master’s degree in Teacher Training of Secondary, Baccalaureate, and FP and the Degree of Teacher of Primary Education of the Madrid Open University (UDIMA). For collecting the required information, a computerized questionnaire designed by the authors of this work and validated by the Ethics Committee of the Madrid Open University (UDIMA), has been used. The results of our study reveal the preservice teachers' memories about mathematics during the Primary and Secondary stages. Traditional teaching models, based on the repetition of calculation procedures, are the majority compared to other active teaching models. It is observed that a progressive increase in the methodologies supported by solving complex problems, detecting a moderate influence of the legislative changes produced in Spain in 2006. The mastery of classical teaching models and the moderate work around complex problems detected in pre-university education can be major constraints when developing new competency-based legislative approaches.</span></div> 2022-10-24T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Julián Roa González, José Luis Díaz Palencia Incorporation of Indigenous Knowledge in the Mathematical Geometry Discipline at a TVET College 2021-05-15T08:52:22+02:00 Makhosi P Madimabe Bunmi Isaiah Omodan Cias T Tsotetsi <div><span lang="EN-US">Mathematical geometrical (MG) concept is often perceived as abstract and difficult to understand by students at the TVET College. Students are unable to perform well in Mathematic Assessments Tasks specifically on this concept. Drawing from this is the declining percentages of student enrolments in mathematics at National Qualification Framework (NQF) level 2. The aim of this study was to enhance the teaching and learning of Mathematical Geometry through the integration of indigenous knowledge in the form of a pilot-practical assessment task (PAT). The research team made use of focus group discussions to gather empirical data. Students were given the practical assessment task that incorporated indigenous knowledge to close the gap of students being unable to relate the mathematical geometry taught in the classroom to their everyday lives that seemed to prevail amongst mathematics students at a TVET College. Ten co-researchers were homogeneously selected based on their level of experience in teaching mathematical geometry at a TVET college located in the Afromontane communities of Thabo Mofutsanyane municipality, South Africa. The result indicated that indigenous knowledge can be utilized as an effective way of learning and teaching mathematical geometry at the TVET college.</span></div> 2022-10-24T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Makhosi P Madimabe, Bunmi Isaiah Omodan, Cias T Tsotetsi
