Miheso-O'Connor Khakasa, Marguerite; Berger, Margot – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT), defined by Ball ("Elementary Journal," 93, 373-397, 1993) as knowledge that is needed to teach mathematics, has been used as a framework by researchers to interrogate various aspects of teaching and learning mathematics. In this article, which draws from a larger study, we show how an in-depth…

Bagaka's, Joshua Gisemba – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The study identified two dimensions of teacher self-efficacy and practices and five dimensions of students' mathematics self-efficacy and sought to determine the extent to which teacher characteristics and practices can enhance secondary school students' self-efficacy. Data were collected from 13,173 students in 193 teachers' classrooms from 141…

Changeiywo, Johnson M.; Wambugu, P. W.; Wachanga, S. W. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
Teaching method is a major factor that affects students' motivation to learn physics. This study investigated the effects of using mastery learning approach (MLA) on secondary school students' motivation to learn physics. Solomon four non-equivalent control group design under the quasi-experimental research method was used in which a random sample…

Masingila, Joanna O.; Muthwii, Samson M.; Kimani, Patrick M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
This study examined standard 6 and 8 (Standards 6 and 8 are the sixth and eighth years, respectively, of primary level schooling in Kenya.) students' perceptions of how they use mathematics and science outside the classroom in an attempt to learn more about students' everyday mathematics and science practice. The knowledge of students' everyday…

Githua, Bernard N.; Nyabwa, Rachel Angela – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2008
Students have continued to perform poorly in KCSE examinations in certain mathematics topics taught in secondary schools in Kenya. One such topic is commercial arithmetic. Successful teaching of mathematics depends partly on correct use of teaching methods in classroom settings. This study sought to examine how the use of advance organisers during…

Keraro, Fred Nyabuti; Wachanga, Samuel W.; Orora, William – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2007
This study investigated the effects of using the cooperative concept mapping (CCM) teaching approach on secondary school students' motivation in biology. A non equivalent control group design under the quasi-experimental research was used in which a random sample of four co-educational secondary schools was used. The four schools were randomly…
