Watson, Jane M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper focuses on the curriculum links between statistics and science that teachers need to understand and apply in order to be effective teachers of the two fields of study. Meaningful statistics does not exist without context and science is the context for this paper. Although curriculum documents differ from country to country, this paper…

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…

Jin, Hui; Hokayem, Hayat; Wang, Sasha; Wei, Xin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
As China and the United States become the top two carbon emitters in the world, it is crucial for citizens in both countries to construct a sophisticated understanding of energy consumption issues. This interview study examines how U.S. and Chinese students compare in explaining and arguing about two critical energy consumption issues: burning…

Lin, Emily; Shi, Qingmin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
Questions remain about how to best prepare students to be environmentally literate. Although Canada and U.S. share similarities in education systems, diversity in student population, and historical roots in formalizing environmental education, Canada is one of the top performing countries in international science assessments while U.S. matches…

Blömeke, Sigrid; Suhl, Ute; Döhrmann, Martina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
The "Teacher Education and Development Study in Mathematics" assessed the knowledge of primary and lower-secondary teachers at the end of their training. The large-scale assessment represented the common denominator of what constitutes mathematics content knowledge and mathematics pedagogical content knowledge in the 16 participating…

Cheek, Kim A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
An understanding of geologic time is comprised of 2 facets. Events in Earth's history can be placed in relative and absolute temporal succession on a vast timescale. Rates of geologic processes vary widely, and some occur over time periods well outside human experience. Several factors likely contribute to an understanding of geologic time, one of…

Wang, Ze; Osterlind, Steven J.; Bergin, David A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Using the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2003 data, this study built mathematics achievement models of 8th graders in four countries: the USA, Russia, Singapore and South Africa. These 4 countries represent the full spectrum of mathematics achievement. In addition, they represent 4 continents, and they include 2 countries…

Lamb, Richard Lawrence; Annetta, Leonard; Meldrum, Jeannette; Vallett, David – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Students in the USA have fallen near the bottom in international competitions and tests in mathematics and science. It is thought that extrinsic factors such as family, community, and schools might be more influential than intrinsic attitudes toward science interest. However, there are relatively few valid and reliable measures of intrinsic…

Hofstein, Avi; Eilks, Ingo; Bybee, Rodger – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
One common theme underlying recent reports on science education is that the content of school science and its related pedagogical approaches are not aligned with the interests and needs of both society and the majority of the students. Most students do not find their science classes interesting and motivating. These claims are especially valid…

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…

Hong, Miyoung; Kang, Nam-Hwa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This study examined science teachers' conceptions of creativity in science education, pedagogical ideas, and contextual factors perceived as constraints on teaching for creativity and any differences in the conceptions of teachers from South Korea and the United States. Participants in the study consisted of 44 South Korean and 21 US secondary…
