Rieche, Helene; Leuders, Timo; Renkl, Alexander – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Students' beliefs that mathematical abilities are fixed can cause long-standing problems with motivation and learning. Hence, teachers should notice such problematic beliefs about identity among their students and handle them adequately. We used written descriptions of classroom situations to determine whether preservice mathematics teachers (n =…

Hästö, Peter; Palkki, Riikka; Tuomela, Dimitri; Star, Jon R. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Flexibility is an important element in learning mathematics. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether flexibility in linear equation solving predicts future academic achievement in mathematics and other subjects. Participants were 149 Finnish high-school students. Results show that flexibility was related to grades in both tracks of…

Dawson, Chris – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Accumulated evidence indicates that low spatial ability makes a contribution, separate from levels of general or verbal intelligence, to the unlikelihood of students enrolling in, or succeeding in, STEM subjects. Further, there is a tendency for female students not to perform as well as males on some spatial tests, suggesting that this might be…

Palha, Sonia; Spandaw, Jeroen – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Learning mathematical thinking and reasoning is a main goal in mathematical education. Instructional tasks have an important role in fostering this learning. We introduce a learning sequence to approach the topic of integrals in secondary education to support students mathematical reasoning while participating in collaborative dialogue about the…

Wiest, Lynda; Amankonah, Frank O. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper reports the performance of 30 rising seventh-grade girls on a task in which they were asked to order four fractions from least to greatest. Less than three-fifths attained correct answers. The performance gap was widest between students who attended Title I schools and those who did not, the latter being much more likely to attain…

Fried, Daniel B.; Tinio, Pablo P. L.; Gubi, Aaron; Gaffney, Jean P. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The scientists of the future will need to begin studying science to great depth, much earlier in life, in order to keep up with the accelerating pace of discovery and technological innovation. For this to be possible, engaging and child-friendly pedagogical approaches need to be developed that leverage the natural enthusiasm of young science…

Bolstad, Oda Heidi – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This article reports a qualitative inquiry into school leaders' and teachers' rationales for teaching to develop students' "mathematical literacy." The study is rooted in an exploration of the meanings that the school leaders and teachers hold about the term mathematical literacy. Six leaders and three grade 9 mathematics teachers from…

Kittiravechote, Aungtinee – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite a tremendous success in boosting students learn electrical analogies for science education, it remains a challenge to extend such strategy for formally constructing equations related to the Ohm's law in order to solve electrical problems based on series and parallel circuits. Unlike most traditional works of teaching technique that focus…

Phillips, Adassa; Hassanali, Muizz; Wingrave, James A. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Solving STEM problems requires that data (numbers and units) from a word problem be substituted into a mathematical equation(s) for solution. However, solving STEM problems is an implicit process that provides little or no guidance for the problem solving process. In this study symbols linking the data to the mathematical equation(s) are used to…

Fried, Daniel B.; Tinio, Pablo P. L.; Hughes, Azuri; Paneque, Diana – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Studying nature from the atomic and molecular perspective gives students access to modern scientific paradigms and could improve achievement and motivation towards science learning. A visual and tactile approach to chemistry can form the foundation for a child-friendly but high-level chemistry curriculum and could be a powerful tool to invigorate…

Köksal, Ela Ayse – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Science is comprised of theory and practical work and to study either part is not enough to understand the whole. Practical work such as observation and fieldtrips should be used to develop students' inquiry skills as well as to support the theory. Teachers with high self-efficacy on fieldtrips will be more likely to use this technique.…

Elmas, Ridvan; Bodner, George M.; Aydogdu, Bulent; Saban, Yakup – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The goal of this study was to analyze the science and technology questions with respect to science process skills (SPS) included in the "Transition from Primary to Secondary Education" (TEOG) examination developed for use with 8th-grade students in Turkey. The 12 TEOG exams administered in the course of three academic years from 2014…

McDaniel, Kerrie; Daday, Jerry – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The faculty in a biology department at a four-year public comprehensive university adopted e-texts for all 100 and 200 level biology courses with the primary motivation of reducing textbook costs to students. This study examines the students' perceptions of the e-texts adopted for these 100 and 200 level biology courses. An online questionnaire…
