Shin, Namsoo; Choi, Sung-Youn; Stevens, Shawn Y.; Krajcik, Joseph S. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
A coherent curriculum that clearly defines sets of ideas that build upon one another to meet desired learning goals can successfully support the development of meaningful understanding across time. This study explores the influence of a coherent curriculum as a systematic approach to aligning and sequencing specific ideas to support students in…

Gardner, Margery; Tillotson, John W. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Integrated STEM education leverages interconnections between science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in order to reflect upon how each discipline operates within real world contexts. Students benefit from the integrated STEM approach because it values the real-life experiences of students along with the hands-on applications that mirror…

Arican, Muhammet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigated preservice middle school mathematics teachers' (PSTs) understanding of proportional and nonproportional relationships and their abilities to differentiate these relationships from each other. The PSTs' abilities to interpret and represent proportional and nonproportional situations and solution strategies were also…

Ge, Yun-Ping; Yang, Hsiuting – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Arrows are recognized as efficient visual elements in conveying location, direction, connection, and process because the shape is thought to have an immediate, common sense impact on viewers. However, the results of our prior quantitative study did not support the assumed effects of arrows in reading energy pyramid diagrams. The current study…

Kuo, Yen-Ruey; Tuan, Hsiao-Lin; Chin, Chi-Chin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aimed to explore low and non-low achievers' motivation towards science learning among 8th graders in two public schools in central Taiwan under inquiry-based instruction. Mixed design research methods were adopted, and students were divided into experimental (n = 56) and control groups (n = 45). Six non-consecutive inquiry units…

Yerdelen, Sündüs; Sungur, Semra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the role of students' classroom learning environment perceptions and teacher effectiveness in 7th grade students' self-regulation in science classes. Students' self-regulation was examined in terms of self-efficacy, achievement goals, and metacognitive strategy use which constitute important components of…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Ke, Fengfeng; Clark, Kathleen M.; Uysal, Seyda – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this design-based research project, we investigated how and to what extent participating in architectural building and problem solving via a simulation game-based learning platform (called E-Rebuild) would facilitate mathematical practices of middle-school students in the informal learning setting. This study encompasses 2 iterative design…
