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…

Yang, Xinrong; Kaiser, Gabriele; König, Johannes; Blömeke, Sigrid – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research on teacher noticing in the field of mathematics education research has increased in the last decade; however, only a few studies have investigated the social and cultural impact on teachers' noticing. This paper describes results of an international comparative study on (in-service) mathematics teachers' professional noticing in China and…

Nawani, Jigna; Kotzebue, Lena; Rixius, Julia; Graml, Michael; Neuhaus, Birgit J. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study investigated the effects of teachers' use of "focus questions" on students' knowledge structures and classroom teaching-learning process by re-analyzing selected data from a quasi-experimental pre-post video study (Wadouh, 2007). Focus questions are content-related anchoring questions highlighting the key content taught in…

Taskin, Vahide; Bernholt, Sascha; Parchmann, Ilka – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Chemical representations serve as a communication tool not only in exchanges between scientists but also in chemistry lessons. The goals of the present study were to measure the extent of student teachers' knowledge about chemical representations, focusing on chemical formulae and structures in particular, and to explore which factors related to…

Duchhardt, Christoph; Jordan, Anne-Katrin; Ehmke, Timo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) has recently drawn additional attention to "mathematical literacy" as an important influential factor for individuals' life chances. High levels of mathematical literacy have thereby been linked to using mathematics in daily and working life frequently. In this…

Nehring, Andreas; Päßler, Andreas; Tiemann, Rüdiger – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
With regard to the moderate performance of German students in international large-scale assessments, one branch of German science education research is concerned with the construction and evaluation of competence models. Based on the theory-driven definition of competence levels, these models imply a correlation between the complexity of a…

Höffler, Tim Niclas; Bonin, Victoria; Parchmann, Ilka – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Competitions are discussed as a measure to foster students' interest, especially for highly gifted and talented students. In the current study, participants of a cognitive school competition in science were compared to non-participants of the same age group (14-15) who either did not participate in any competition or who participated in a…

Theyßen, Heike; Struzyna, Sarah; Mylott, Elliot; Widenhorn, Ralf – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In this paper, we present the design and the results of a comparative study that evaluated the success of a transfer of an online-teaching resource between two universities, one in Germany and one in the USA. The teaching resource is an online physics lab that has been used in the physics education of medical students in Germany since 2003. The…

Dreher, Anika; Kuntze, Sebastian; Lerman, Stephen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Dealing with multiple representations and their connections plays a key role for learners to build up conceptual knowledge in the mathematics classroom. Hence, professional knowledge and views of mathematics teachers regarding the use of multiple representations certainly merit attention. In particular, investigating such views of preservice…

Belova, Nadja; Eilks, Ingo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
A large part of the media landscape surrounding us consists of advertising. Therefore, skills for critically coping with advertising are indispensable. Students need to develop such skills for evaluating messages and facts from advertisements. They also need to learn about the mechanisms behind how advertisements are created and used to influence…

Dede, Yüksel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This study presents a small part of a larger study investigating Turkish and German mathematics teachers' and their students' values (Values in Mathematics Teaching in Turkey and Germany). The main focus of the study was school levels of the teachers working at primary and secondary schools. The interactions related to nationality were also of…

König, Johannes; Blömeke, Sigrid; Kaiser, Gabriele – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
We examined several facets of general pedagogical knowledge and skills of early career mathematics teachers, asking how they are associated with characteristics of teacher education, teaching experience, and working conditions. Declarative general pedagogical knowledge (GPK) was assessed via a paper-and-pencil test, while early career teachers'…

Blömeke, Sigrid; Hoth, Jessica; Döhrmann, Martina; Busse, Andreas; Kaiser, Gabriele; König, Johannes – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Beginning primary teachers' knowledge and beliefs were assessed at the end of teacher education and 4 years later. In addition, they reported about their school context and job satisfaction and took a video-based assessment on their perception, interpretation, and decision-making skills. Research questions were (1) whether we have to deal with a…

Steffensky, Mirjam; Gold, Bernadette; Holdynski, Manfred; Möller, Kornelia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The present study investigates the internal structure of professional vision of in-service teachers and student teachers with respect to classroom management and learning support in primary science lessons. Classroom management (including monitoring, managing momentum, and rules and routines) and learning support (including cognitive activation…

Seybold, Brigitte; Braunbeck, Thomas; Randler, Christoph – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
Nearly all primate species are globally threatened. Conservation approaches need to focus on local people and users of resources from the habitats of the apes. Students worldwide should become aware of the context and relationships in school, and they should change their usage and behaviour as the ultimate goals. This study explored the…
