Scheiner, Thorsten; Montes, Miguel A.; Godino, Juan D.; Carrillo, José; Pino-Fan, Luis R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The purpose of this article is to contribute to the discussion of mathematics teacher knowledge, and the question of what makes it specialized. In the first part of the article, central orientations in conceptualizing mathematics teacher knowledge are identified and the more serious limitations of the grounds on which they stand are explicated. In…

Baranovich, Diana-Lea; Fong, Pei-Chin; Hutagalung, Fonny – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The study aims to have a better understanding on the parental scaffolding in mathematics homework among preschoolers in the Malaysian context. This is achieved by exploring to what extent Malaysian parents provide scaffolding to their preschoolers in mathematics homework interactions. Investigations about the strategies employed by the parents…

Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Schultz, Madeleine; Wright, Anthony H. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The successful transition from high school to tertiary chemistry studies relies on a student's ability to transfer prior understanding since many topics are extended during first year general chemistry. It was therefore of interest to investigate the perspectives of high school and tertiary teachers regarding which topics and concepts they…

García-Carmona, Antonio – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This article presents a qualitative descriptive-interpretive study about the abilities of pre-service primary science teachers (PPTs) to solve a measurement problem put to them as an activity of scientific inquiry. The participants in the study were 23 PPTs receiving training in science teaching, organized into small groups to solve the proposed…

Russo, James; Hopkins, Sarah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research suggests that teachers of mathematics are frequently reluctant to pose challenging tasks to students. Reasons for this reluctance include fears of negative student reactions, time and resource constraints, and a lack of relevant teacher content knowledge. The current study involved interviewing three early primary-grade (elementary)…

Patahuddin, Sitti Maesuri; Lowrie, Tom – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers should possess a robust knowledge of graph interpretation in a world that requires increasingly scientific citizens. This study aimed to investigate teachers' knowledge of interpreting a context-based line graph, by understanding the types of difficulties teachers have in interpreting such graphs. The study also sought to determine…

Di Martino, Pietro; Gregorio, Francesca – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Tertiary transition in mathematics appears to be an insurmountable struggle for many students, including for high achievers in secondary school. The high dropout rates in many Western Countries represent a big issue from an individual and social point of view. It appears particularly significant to analyse this phenomenon in the context of the…

Komatsu, Kotaro; Jones, Keith – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Task design is increasingly recognised as crucial for enhancing student learning of mathematics. Even so, and despite the significance of mathematical activity related to proofs and counterexamples in school mathematics, the task design principles underpinning students' success in proof-related activity remains under-explored in mathematics…

Paige, Kathryn; Hardy, Graham – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE) is an innovative strand of the most recent Australian Curriculum: Science. The introduction of SHE is welcome and comes at a time when Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is under increasing scrutiny both in Australia and across the world, with some commentators identifying a…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Sitong; Chen, Bo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Through a questionnaire survey, this study aims to investigate the contributions of different sources in developing science teachers' practical knowledge of teaching with practical work. The framework of this study is based on the conceptualization of PCK and ten possible sources of science teachers' PCK related to teaching with practical work.…

Hsu, Pei-Ling – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Working with scientists has been suggested as an effective way for high school students to learn science more authentically. However, several challenges hinder partnerships between students and scientists, such as intimidation issues, the complexity of scientific language, and communication barriers. The purpose of this phenomenographic study was…

Chen, Hsiang-Ting; Wang, Hsin-Hui; Lu, Ying-Yan; Hong, Zuway-R – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This quasi-experimental mixed-methods design examined the effects of a Modified Argument-Driven Inquiry (MADI) on elementary school boys' and girls' engagement in learning science (ELS) and performance of argumentation. Thirty-two children were randomly selected to participate in a two-semester 24-h intervention, forming an experimental group (EG,…

Albadi, Nouf Mohammed; Harkins, Jean; O'Toole, John Mitchell – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Recent research in science education for learners whose first language is Arabic suggests that learning in the mother tongue can reduce learner misconceptions, but there has been little research into the comprehensibility of science texts where Arabic is the language of instruction. This mixed-methods study describes the perceptions of substantial…

Ehrenfeld, Nadav; Heyd-Metzuyanim, Einat – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper examines the mechanisms by which students' cultural background plays an active role in the study of mathematics. It does so with the aid of two main constructs: hybrid discourse and intellective identities. At the center of the article is an analysis of a classroom episode from a preparatory program in which adult ultra-orthodox Jews…
