Spyrtou, Anna; Lavonen, Jari; Zoupidis, Anastasios; Loukomies, Anni; Pnevmatikos, Dimitris; Juuti, Kalle; Kariotoglou, Petros – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In the present paper, we report on the idea of exchanging educational innovations across European countries aiming to shed light on the following question: how feasible and useful is it to transfer an innovation across different national educational settings? The innovation, in this case, Inquiry-Based Teaching Learning Sequences, is recognized as…

Lemonidis, Charalampos; Tsakiridou, Helen; Meliopoulou, Ioanna – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of the present study is to examine content knowledge (CK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of Greek teachers in number sense and specifically in mental calculations with rational numbers (fractions, decimals and percentages). Examined within the framework of CK were the type of strategies employed by teachers and the extent of…

Triantafillou, Chrissavgi; Spiliotopoulou, Vasiliki; Potari, Despina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The present study explores reasoning and argumentation in Greek mathematics and physics texts in specific topics related to the notion of periodicity. In our study, argumentation is taken as the sequence of the modes of reasoning (MsoR) that an author develops in a text when organizing and presenting new knowledge. Inductive content analysis was…

Palla, Marina; Potari, Despina; Spyrou, Panagiotis – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
In this study, we investigate the meaning students attribute to the structure of mathematical induction (MI) and the process of proof construction using mathematical induction in the context of a geometric recursion problem. Two hundred and thirteen 17-year-old students of an upper secondary school in Greece participated in the study. Students'…

Papadopoulos, Ioannis – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The issue of the area of irregular shapes is absent from the modern mathematical textbooks in elementary education in Greece. However, there exists a collection of books written for educational purposes by famous Greek scholars dating from the eighteenth century, which propose certain techniques concerning the estimation of the area of such…

Giallousi, Maria; Gialamas, Vassilios; Spyrellis, Nicolas; Pavlatou, Evangelia A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This study describes the development and validation of a Greek-language instrument that can be used to assess grade 10 students' perceptions of their chemistry classroom environment as a means of showing differences between chemistry learning environments in Greece (Attica) and Cyprus. The development of the instrument was based on available…

Elia, Iliada; Gagatsis, Athanasios; Panaoura, Areti; Zachariades, Theodosis; Zoulinaki, Fotini – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
The present study explores students' abilities in conversions between geometric and algebraic representations, in problem-solving situations involving the concept of "limit" and the interrelation of these abilities with students' constructed understanding of this concept. An attempt is also made to examine the impact of the…

Kariotoglou, Petros; Spyrtou, Anna; Tselfes, Vassilis – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
In this paper, we describe empirical research on the recording of primary school and preschool student teacher conceptions of the concept of distant force interactions in different contexts related to the school curriculum for this subject. For this objective to be achieved, we undertook ten semi-structured interviews with student teachers. Based…
