Hong, Y; Kerr, S; Klymchuk, S; McHardy, J; Murphy, P; Spencer, S; Thomas, M; Watson, P (Taylor & Francis, 2009)The transition from school to tertiary study of mathematics comes under increasing scrutiny in research. This article reports on some findings from a project analysing the transition from secondary to tertiary education ... 
Analysing university students' abilities in making assumptions in a ballistics model: a case study
Klymchuk, S (The Bronx Colleges of the City University of New York, 2016)This paper investigates abilities of two groups of university students in making assumptions in a ballistics model. The first group consisted of postgraduate students majoring in applied mathematics from a New Zealand ... 
Application Problems Vs Pure Mathematics Questions: Students’ Perspectives
Klymchuk, S; Spooner, K (Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), 2017)The paper presents results of two case studies with undergraduate students majoring in applied mathematics and engineering. The first case study deals with students’ preferences and difficulties with application problems ... 
Counterexamples in teaching/learning of calculus: students’ performance
Klymchuk, S (2005)This paper presents a case study which involved the first year science and engineering students of the Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. After very favourable feedback received from the students in the ... 
Enhancing Generic Thinking Skills of Tertiary STEM Students through Puzzlebased Learning
Klymchuk, S; Thomas, M; Gulyaev, S; Evans, T (Ako Aotearoa, 2017)Executive Summary The aim of the project was to evaluate the impact of the regular use of puzzles, paradoxes and sophisms (PPS) as a pedagogical strategy for enhancing generic thinking skills of tertiary STEM ... 
Experience with using counterexamples in an introductory calculus class
Klymchuk, S (Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2014)The paper describes a personal experience with using counterexamples as a pedagogical strategy in the teaching and learning of an introductory calculus course at a university of technology.

I See What You're Doing: Student Views on Lecturer Use of Tablet PCs in the Classroom
Maclaren, P; Wilson, D; Klymchuk, S (The Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education (ASCILITE), 2016)A fundamental component in the teaching of STEM subjects, particularly those involving mathematical processes, has traditionally been a classroom session with a teacher modelling theory and problem solving using a chalkboard ... 
Increasing engineering students’ awareness to environment through innovative teaching of mathematical modelling
Klymchuk, S; Zverkova, T; Gruenwald, N; Sauerbier, G (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2008)This article presents the results of two studies on using an innovative pedagogical strategy in teaching mathematical modelling and applications to engineering students. Both studies are dealing with introducing nontraditional ... 
Lecturer Use of Penenabled Tablet PC Technology in the STEM Classroom: Implications for Notetaking
Maclaren, P; Wilson, D; Klymchuk, S (Australasian Journal of Educational Technology (AJET), 2017)The penenabled Tablet PCs(penTPC) has been adopted by increasing numbers of lecturers teaching in mathematically intensive disciplines within the study university. This uptake has been facilitated by the device’s capability ... 
Overview of V.A. Plotnikov’s research on averaging of differential inclusions
Klymchuk, S; Plotnikov, A; Skripnik, N (Elsevier, 2012)In this review, we will first look in detail at Plotnikov’s results on the substantiation of full and partial schemes of averaging of differential inclusions of the standard form on finite and infinite intervals. Then we ... 
Paradoxes and counterexamples in teaching and learning of probability at university
Klymchuk, S; Kachapova, F (Taylor & Francis, 2011)This article is devoted to practical aspects of teaching and learning of probability at university. It presents the difficulties and attitudes of firstyear university science and engineering students towards using paradoxes ... 
Provocative mathematics questions: drawing attention to a lack of attention
Klymchuk, S (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2014)The paper investigates the role of attention in the reflective thinking of school mathematics teachers. It analyses teachers’ ability to pay attention to detail and use their mathematical knowledge. The vast majority of ...

Puzzlebased Learning in University Mathematics: Students’ Perspectives
Evans, T; Klymchuk, S; Thomas, M (International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (PME), 2018)In this talk, we present an overview of a project aimed at integrating puzzles, paradoxes, sophisms and provocations (later for convenience called just ‘puzzles’) into university mathematics courses during traditional ... 
Reducing the gap between the school and university mathematics: university lecturers' perspective
Gruenwald, N; Klymchuk, S; Jovanoski, Z (2004)This paper deals with a very practical issue. In many countries there is a gap between school and university mathematics. The transition period from school to university can be hard for many students. Even students with ...
