Contel, Teresa Muñoz; Ferrandis, Ignacio García; Ferrandis, Xavier García – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Light pollution has emerged with the industrial development in recent decades. It is becoming a significant environmental issue for cities today and it will probably become more important in the near future. However, very little research has been carried out on this issue in the field of science teaching, despite there being a general agreement…

Brez, Caitlin C.; Allen, Jessica J. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Currently, few studies have addressed public opinions regarding math education. The current study surveyed adults in a Midwestern town in the United States to assess opinions regarding math and math education. Overall, we found that adults believe that math is useful and that math education is important. We found that parents who currently have a…

Bofah, Emmanuel Adu-tutu; Hannula, Markku S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In this study, we investigated students' views on themselves as learners of mathematics as a function of school-by-sex (N = 2034, MAge = 18.49, SDAge = 1.25; 12th-grade; 58.2% girls). Using latent variable Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), the measurement and structural equivalence as well as the equality of latent means of scores across…

Savas Basturk – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Attribution theory deals with the question of how individuals make judgments and seek to explain how they consider the causes of their behaviours and those of others. Attributions have the potential to affect beliefs, emotions and behaviour. Therefore, attribution theory has significantly contributed to the studies on motivation. This study…
