Zhang, Lin; Li, Zhushan – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
The present study examined to what extent inquiry-based investigation as an instructional approach associated with students' overall science achievement and achievement in cognitive domains, including knowing science facts, applying scientific principles, and reasoning with scientific concepts to solve problems. Using TIMSS 2007 science…

Takeuchi, Miwa Aoki; Bryan, Venise; Valera, Silvana; Dadkhahfard, Shima – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
Focusing on the context of linguistically and racially heterogeneous Canadian schools, this article describes the "figured worlds" as discussed by Holland, Skinner, Lachicotte Jr, & Cain (1998, p. 52) of group work: the stories, characters, and roles that students envisioned in the setting of group work. The study was conducted in…

Braund, Martin; Reiss, Michael J. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
In recent years, there has been a rapid growth in interest about the relationship between the arts and the sciences. This article explores this developing relationship and the suggestion that science and science learning are not complete without the arts. We see three levels at which the arts might improve the teaching and learning of science. The…

Borgerding, Lisa; Deniz, Hasan – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
Epistemological views characterise how individuals view the certainty, source and organization of knowledge. Previous research has demonstrated some relationships between epistemological views and nature of science (NOS) views. These relationships may be particularly interesting for biology students who are learning about topics such as evolution…

Lee, Yujin; Capraro, Robert M.; Bicer, Ali – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
The integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Project-Based Learning (STEM PBL) into educational curriculum has received much attention because of its strength in improving students' affective engagement. We designed the present study to investigate the effectiveness of STEM PBL lessons on 9th grade students' development of…

Sivia, Awneet; MacMath, Sheryl; Novakowski, Chelsea; Britton, Vandy – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
To investigate any possible differences in student engagement between project-based learning units and non-project-based learning units, this triangulation design-convergence mixed methods study followed a grade 10 teacher and her students as they completed science units on chemistry, aquaponics, and genetics. Student engagement was measured in…

Murphy, Steve; MacDonald, Amy; Wang, Cen Audrey; Danaia, Lena – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2019
There are international calls to enhance learner engagement in STEM. Further, there are international concerns about the gender disparity in interest, aspiration, and participation in STEM. These calls recognise the role that learners' motivation in, and emotional response to, STEM plays in their participation and achievement in STEM education.…

de Freitas, Elizabeth; Sinclair, Nathalie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Human reasoning about and with uncertainty is often at odds with the principles of classical probability. Order effects, conjunction biases, and sure-thing inclinations suggest that an entirely different set of probability axioms could be developed and indeed may be needed to describe such habits. Recent work in diverse fields, including cognitive…

Cedillo, Stacia – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This article explores the concept of "anti-blackness" as a theoretical construct that may offer new openings towards transformative and liberatory projects concerned with race and inequity in STEM education research, policy, and pedagogical reform. The article first unpacks the historic, economic, political, and therefore racialized…

Wallace, Maria F. G.; Higgins, Marc; Bazzul, Jesse – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Nature, as a creative ontology, and the ethico-political possibilities inherent within have been seemingly occluded in the field of science education. By Thinking with Nature (TwN), we return to the ontological dimensions of practice and research methodology in science education. Drawing on new material feminisms, educators are invited to follow…

Giordano, Sara – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In this paper, I combine feminist, decolonial scholar María Lugones' theory on playfulness and world-traveling with feminist science studies scholar Deboleena Roy's work along with some other core feminist science studies concepts to define feminist tinkering as an explicitly politically motivated "playing" with the epistemic power of…

Rotas, Nikki – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This paper focuses on a transdisciplinary research project in a historically underrepresented public school in Toronto, Canada. At the intersection of elementary science, technology, and arts-based curriculum, the project employs the feminist new materialist practice of "diffraction" (Barad, 2007) in an after-school robotics club.…

Wooten, Michelle M. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
The research practices of academics of science teaching and learning (academics-"of-st&l") may be considered a connected, constructed landscape, the peaks of which are shaped by accumulation of like practices. Entangling interviews with twenty-seven academics-"of-st&l" and document analyses, in this paper I map the…

Reys, Robert – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
There are many paths to becoming an active researcher in mathematics education. This article describes one ideal path. It begins with identifying a useful educational background prior to entering a doctoral program. Then it offers some suggestions for selecting an institution to pursue a doctoral program. The article outlines some academic…

Kontorovich, Igor'; Rouleau, Annette – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This article is concerned with tensions that teachers who are studying for a graduate degree in mathematics education experience when conducting a research project. Specifically, we focused on the tensions that emerge in situations where teacher-researchers encounter the mathematical misconceptions and difficulties of their interviewees. The…
