Prediger, Suzanne – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This paper explores Alan Bishop's assumption that all formal mathematics education produces cultural conflicts between the children's everyday culture and the culture of mathematics. Existing empirical studies support the assumption that mathematics learning indeed has some intercultural aspects which can be differentiated in language factors,…

Bardini, Caroline; Pierce, Robyn U.; Stacey, Kaye – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This study analyses some of the consequences of adopting a functional/modelling approach to the teaching of algebra. The teaching of one class of 17 students was observed over five weeks, with 15 students undertaking both pre- and post-tests and 6 students and the teacher being interviewed individually. Use of graphics calculators made the…

De Jong, Onno; Van Driel, Jan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
In chemical education, many secondary school students experience difficulties in understanding three mutual related meanings of topics, that is, the macroscopic meaning, the microscopic meaning, and the symbolic meaning. As a consequence, student teachers should be prepared carefully to learn how to teach this difficult issue. This article…

Wang, Jing-Ru – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This article provides a model for the professional development of elementary science teachers. The model focused on integrating different domains of knowledge into science teaching, including the knowledge of the science curriculum, especially scientific inquiry, teacher's knowledge, and students' knowledge. The two case studies in this article…

Van Rens, Lisette; Pilot, Albert; Van Dijk, Hans – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
Our pre-university chemistry students face problems achieving sufficient quality in chemical inquiry. To try to enhance the quality of student performance in chemical inquiry, Dutch pre-university chemistry students (age 17) carried out an authentic research project on "Diffusion of ions in distilled water." The learning materials for this student…

Wu, Cheng-Chih; Lee, Greg C. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This study investigates how Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) can be effectively used in a teaching practicum course to enhance preservice teachers' learning. We constructed a web-based CMC system and used it in a Teaching Practicum course. Computer science preservice teachers and experienced secondary school computer teachers, who served as…

Chin, Chi-Chin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
In this study, the researcher included an extensive science museum experience for the pre-service secondary science teachers within a "teaching methods course" to enhance their learning to teach science. The extensive museum experience covered four aspects: the visit, discussion with museum educators, the development of lesson plans, and…

Yip, Din Yan; Chiu, Ming Ming; Ho, Esther Sui Chu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This study examined gender differences in students' scientific literacy as measured by OECD-PISA. In particular, we focused on the 2437 students from 140 Hong Kong schools. Hong Kong boys' and girls' science scores did not differ overall. However, boys scored higher than girls at the higher percentiles (75th and above). Moreover, specific test…

Wang, Jing-Ru – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This study is intended to develop an assessment instrument to investigate students' understandings about internal transport in plants and human circulatory system. A refined process of a two-tier diagnostic test was used to develop the instrument. Finally, three versions of the Internal Transport in Plants and the Human Circulatory System test…

Lin, Sheau-Wen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This study involved the development and application of a two-tier diagnostic test measuring students' understanding of flowering plant growth and development. The instrument development procedure had three general steps: defining the content boundaries of the test, collecting information on students' misconceptions, and instrument development.…

Yu, Jya-Yi Wu; Chin, Erh-Tsung; Lin, Chia-Jung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
This research was designed to study Taiwanese junior high school students' understanding about the validity of conditional statements. Distinguishing between validity and truth is a crucial topic in mathematical reasoning and argumentation but has been always neglected in the mathematics curriculum at junior high school level of schooling. The…

Yang, Der-Ching; Hsu, Chun-Jen; Huang, Ming-Chiang – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
Two public schools (A and B) from two cities in southern Taiwan were selected to participate in this study. In each school, two sixth grade classes (an experimental and a control class) were studied. Number sense activities were conducted in the experimental classes through process-oriented teaching model to help children develop number sense,…

Guo, Chorng-Jee; Chang, Huey-Por – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2004
The new Science and Technology Curriculum Framework recently issued in Taiwan advocates the teaching of integrated science and technology with greater emphasis on basic skills. Science teachers are not used to teach in this way, they need different abilities and skills in order to do so. Using various effective professional development strategies,…
