Højgaard, Thomas; Sølberg, Jan – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Curricula around the world make more and more use of goals trying to capture different kind of processes for the students to master. In Denmark these ambitions have most recently been described in terms of subject specific competencies. However, bringing such ambitions into the actual teaching practices has proved challenging. KOMPIS was a…

Vaheoja, Monika; Verhelst, N. D.; Eggen, T.J.H.M. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this article, the authors applied profile analysis to Maths exam data to demonstrate how different exam forms, differing in difficulty and length, can be reported and easily interpreted. The results were presented for different groups of participants and for different institutions in different Maths domains by evaluating the balance. Some…

Festo, Kayima – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Teacher questions play an important role in facilitating classroom discourse. Using appropriate question types and proper questioning techniques help to create reflective-active learners. Teacher questions can elicit students' explanations, elaboration of their ideas and thinking, and they can be used to disclose students' misconceptions. Despite…

Bossér, Ulrika; Lundin, Mattias; Lindahl, Mats; Linder, Cedric – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Teachers may face considerable challenges when implementing socio-scientific issues (SSI) in their classroom practices, such as incorporating student-centred teaching practices and exploring knowledge and values in the context of socioscientific issues. This year-long study explores teachers' reflections on the process of developing their…

Jordan, Sally – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
Inspection of thousands of student responses to computer-marked assessment questions has brought insight into the errors made by adult distance learners of science. Most of the questions analysed were in summative use and required students to construct their own response. Both of these things increased confidence in the reliability of the…

Radovanovic, Jelena; Sliško, Josip – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This paper describes investigative homework with apples, aiming to contribute to the primary-school students' understanding of density and conditions leading to floating and sinking. The assignment represents an opportunity for individual autonomous learning of physics and adoption of established scientific concepts through practical activities…

Hynes-Berry, Mary; Berry, Gordon – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
We explore the power of allowing students to construct their own conceptual understanding as they "read an object" in a series of guided inquiry steps, developing their own questions about the object. Their ownership of questions increases the learner's engagement and results in more efficacious learning and meets the standards of…

Ryan, Barry J. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
Laboratory training is key to many science subjects and those that teach the practical laboratory skills maintain a pivotal role in undergraduate science training. Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) are regularly used in higher education institutes to teach these practical lab skills. The GTA can be involved in both laboratory teaching and…

Foster, Colin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This paper addresses ways in which mathematics pedagogy can benefit from insights gleaned from counselling. Person-centred counselling stresses the value of genuineness, warm empathetic listening and minimal intervention to support people in solving their own problems and developing increased autonomy. Such an approach contrasts starkly with the…

Hestenes, David – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
Radical reform in science and mathematics education is needed to prepare citizens for challenges of the emerging knowledge-based global economy. We consider definite proposals to establish: (1) "Standards of science and math literacy" for all students. (2) "Integration of the science curriculum" with structure of matter,…

Bankov, Kiril – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
Geometry plays an important role in the school mathematics curriculum all around the world. Teaching of geometry varies a lot (Hoyls, Foxman, & Kuchemann, 2001). Many countries revise the objectives, the content, and the approaches to the geometry in school. Studies of the processes show that there are not common trends of these changes…

Robertson, William; Lesser, Lawrence M. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
Edutainment has recently been a major growing area of education, showing great promise to motivate students with relevant activities. The authors are among innovators who have developed cutting-edge fusions of popular culture and STEM concepts to engage and to motivate middle school students, using vehicles such as music/song and skateboarding.…
