Belland, Brian R.; Weiss, D. Mark; Kim, Nam Ju; Piland, Jacob; Gu, Jiangyue – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, we investigated how high school credit recovery students worked in small groups and used computer-based scaffolds to conduct scientific inquiry in a problem-based learning unit centered on water quality. We examined how students searched for and evaluated information from different sources, and used evidence to support their claims.…

Hallman-Thrasher, Allyson; Connor, Jeff; Sturgill, Derek – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper presents the findings of a group of teacher candidates with undergraduate degrees in a STEM discipline who were followed through an intensive 1-year preparation program and their 1st year of teaching. We report on the affordances and challenges participants' discipline knowledge presented to developing pedagogical content knowledge…

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…

Schüler-Meyer, Alexander; Prediger, Susanne; Kuzu, Taha; Wessel, Lena; Redder, Angelika – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
To what degree can multilingual students profit from bilingual teaching approaches, even when they lack experience in the academic or technical register in their home languages? This study explores this research question in a mixed methods design for a German/Turkish bilingual intervention aimed at fostering conceptual understanding of fractions…

Berger, Margot – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper explores different ways in which mathematics students read a section of a prescribed mathematics textbook. In this case, the students are mathematics teachers learning new mathematics in a self-study calculus course. Two students were video-taped, while they studied a prescribed portion of the textbook. The reading styles of these two…

Jin, Hui; Shin, Hyo Jeong; Hokayem, Hayat; Qureshi, Farah; Jenkins, Thomas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study describes how we developed a learning progression (LP) for systems thinking in ecosystems and collected preliminary validity evidence for the LP. In particular, the LP focuses on how middle and high school students use discipline-specific systems thinking concepts (e.g. feedback loops and energy pyramid) to analyze and explain the…

Rollinde, E. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Human Orrery is a representation of the Solar System at a human scale, on which positions of planets over time are symbolized by different discs. Learners can then walk along the orbits of the planets with the right pace. This pedagogical tool uses the principles of enacted cognition to promote a better understanding of the scientific laws of…

Leong, Yew Hoong; Tay, Eng Guan; Toh, Tin Lam; Quek, Khiok Seng; Yap, Romina Ann Soon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
We recognise that though teachers may participate in various forms of professional development (PD) programmes, learning that they may have gained in the PD may not always lead to corresponding perceivable changes in their classroom teaching. We offer a theoretical re-orientation towards this issue by introducing a construct we term…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Kim, Hee-jeong – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers' ways of using curriculum materials create not only meaningful learning opportunities for students but also opportunities for teachers to learn and change their teaching practices; however, not enough research has investigated precisely how. This study investigates how teachers' implementation of innovative curriculum materials…

Revina, Shintia; Leung, Frederick Koon Shing – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Past studies have raised caution over educational transfer in mathematics education. The idea that an instructional approach to teaching and learning of mathematics can truly be universal and implemented across all cultures was challenged, as some aspects of the approach might be too closely bound up with the specific context where it was…

Erkek, Özlem; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The aim of the present study was to investigate the nature of global argumentation structures of prospective middle school mathematics teachers in a technology enhanced environment. A qualitative case study was conducted with 8 participants from an Elementary Mathematics Education undergraduate program of one of the public universities in Ankara.…

Fang, Su-Chi; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Lin, Shu-Sheng – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This article proposes a theoretical framework for conceptualizing socioscientific decision making, reviews current research in this area, and intends to shed some light on the instructional design for the classroom implementation of socioscientific decision making. The framework involves 3 phases: formulate the decision-making space, posit a…

Sasson, Irit – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research apprenticeship experiences provide a uniquely authentic context for deepening participants' understanding of the nature of science and encouraging them to choose STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) studies and careers. This study evaluated a STEM program for high school students who engaged in science research with…

Mason, Lucia; Zaccoletti, Sonia; Carretti, Barbara; Scrimin, Sara; Diakidoy, Irene-Anna N. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Text is the primary tool to learn disciplinary knowledge in school. Text-based learning is shaped by a complex interplay between the text and reader characteristics. This study examined the role of text structure and inhibition in conceptual learning about energy. Inhibition implies the ability to block dominant but inappropriate responses…
