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…

Doorman, Michiel; Bos, Rogier; de Haan, Dédé; Jonker, Vincent; Mol, Amy; Wijers, Monica – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study reports on a way to address twenty-first-century skills in mathematics education by organizing one-day mathematics challenges in the Netherlands. During such a day, students work in teams in school on an open-ended problem which aims to elicit skills like problem-solving, modeling, collaboration, and communication. The framework and the…

van der Wal, Nathalie J.; Bakker, Arthur; Drijvers, Paul – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Due to increased use of technology, the workplace practices of engineers have changed. So-called techno-mathematical literacies (TmL) are necessary for engineers of the 21st century. Because it is still unknown which TmL engineers actually use in their professional practices, the purpose of this study was to identify these TmL. Fourteen…

Khishfe, Rola; BouJaoude, Saouma – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Students' attitudes and conceptions seem to be influenced by social/cultural contexts and interactions with other students from diverse backgrounds. Therefore, educators need to study attitudes, conceptions, and career choices in relation to diversity indicators. Such was one focus of the Science Education for Diversity project, which involved…

Korpershoek, Hanke; Kuyper, Hans; van der Werf, Greetje – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Word problems are math- or science-related problems presented in the context of a story or real-life scenario. Literature suggests that, to solve these problems, advanced reading skills are required, in addition to content-related skills in, for example, mathematics. In the present study, we investigated the relation between students' reading…

Verhoef, Nellie; Tall, David; Coenders, Fer; van Smaalen, Daan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This study combines the Japanese lesson study approach and mathematics teachers' professional development. The first year of a 4-year project in which 3 Dutch secondary school teachers worked cooperatively on introducing making sense of the calculus is reported. The analysis focusses on instrumental and relational student understanding of…

Zhu, Yan; Leung, Frederick K. S. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
The importance of motivation in learning has been widely recognized. However, due to its multidimensional and complex nature, it appears difficult to synthesize research findings on motivation across studies. Heated debates about the effects of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation on learning and their interaction have been going on since the terms…
