Kërënxhi, Svjetllana; Gjoci, Pranvera – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In this paper, we recommend mathematical teaching through dual treatments. The dual treatments notion, classified in dual interpretations, dual analyses, dual solutions, and dual formulations, is explained through concrete examples taken from mathematical textbooks of elementary education. Dual treatments provide opportunities for creating…

Fazio, Xavier; Gallagher, Tiffany L. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The science vocabulary from a science curriculum standards document (Ministry of Education Ontario, 2007) was classified by morphological developmental level and compared to the grade level topics of the curriculum (grades 1 to 8). Descriptive statistical analyses highlight the complex nature of science vocabulary and the incompatibilities between…

Tan-Sisman, Gulcin; Aksu, Meral – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
"Knowing and doing measurement" is a fundamental competency in real life since measuring attributes of objects in appropriate units and using measuring tools assist students to quantify and understand the world. For this reason, the study of measurement has a special place in every mathematics curriculum. Among the domains of…

Vitale, Michael R.; Romance, Nancy R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
This study focused on accelerating development of science knowledge and understanding at the primary level (grades 1-2) as a means for enhancing reading comprehension (i.e. early literacy). An adaptation of a grade 3-5 cognitive-science-based, instructional model ("Science IDEAS") that integrated science with reading and writing, this…

Kim, Mijung; Roth, Wolff-Michael; Thom, Jennifer – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
There is mounting research evidence that contests the metaphysical perspective of knowing as mental process detached from the physical world. Yet education, especially in its teaching and learning practices, continues to treat knowledge as something that is necessarily and solely expressed in ideal verbal form. This study is part of a funded…

Gado, Issaou – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2005
The purpose of this study was to describe attitudes of first and second grade teachers in Benin, toward school science and their instructional preferences (inquiry-based and traditional noninquiry-based instruction), and determine some factors that could explain these attitudes and preferences. Three hundred (N = 300) preparatory classroom…
