Leung, Allen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
How to pedagogically integrate the four STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines is a main discussion issue in STEM education. Inquiry-based learning, mathematical modeling, and tool-based pedagogy could go hand in hand to provide a possible integrated STEM pedagogical framework for mathematics and science. This…

Chu, Hye-Eun; Martin, Sonya N.; Park, Jennifer – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Recently, pedagogical approaches have focused on creating arts-integrated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) or STEAM classes, which have drawn attention to the importance of the arts in science education. Despite increasing development and implementation of STEAM initiatives in science, there is limited discussion on the…

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…

Lutovac, Sonja; Kaasila, Raimo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Mathematics education research has placed great emphasis on teacher identity, examining both pre- and in-service teachers, and within these cohorts, specialised mathematics teachers and non-specialists such as elementary teachers. Extensive research has already been done; hence, this paper discusses possible future directions for research on…

Ronda, Erlina; Adler, Jill – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In this paper, we propose an analytic tool for describing the mathematics made available to learn in a "textbook lesson". The tool is an adaptation of the Mathematics Discourse in Instruction (MDI) analytic tool that we developed to analyze what is made available to learn in teachers' lessons. Our motivation to adapt the use of the MDI…

Chalmers, Christina; Carter, Merilyn; Cooper, Tom; Nason, Rod – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Although education experts are increasingly advocating the incorporation of integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum units to address limitations in much current STEM teaching and learning, a review of the literature reveals that more often than not such curriculum units are not mediating the construction of…

Yeo, Joseph B. W. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Educators usually mean different constructs when they speak of open tasks: some may refer to pure-mathematics investigative tasks while others may have authentic real-life tasks in mind; some may think of the answer being open while others may refer to an open method. On the other hand, some educators use different terms, e.g. open and open-ended,…

Wang, Yuqian; Barmby, Patrick; Bolden, David – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study describes a comparison of how worked examples in selected textbooks from England and Shanghai presented possible learning trajectories towards understanding linear function. Six selected English textbooks and one Shanghai compulsory textbook were analysed with regards to the understanding required for pure mathematics knowledge in…

Wang, Jing-Ru; Chen, Shin-Feng – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This article reports on the development of an online dynamic approach for assessing and improving students' reading comprehension of science texts--the dynamic assessment for reading comprehension of science text (DARCST). The DARCST blended assessment and response-specific instruction into a holistic learning task for grades 5 and 6 students. The…

Agudelo-Valderrama, Cecilia; Martínez, Diana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In this paper, we offer illustrations of a mathematics teacher's difficulties with content knowledge when trying to find connections between school mathematics and science; we do so by describing the development of this teacher's thinking and learning in her pursuit of connections between the concepts of slope of a line and density of matter. The…

Sarkar, Mahbub; Corrigan, Deborah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
In line with a current global trend, junior secondary science education in Bangladesh aims to provide science education for all students to enable them to use their science learning in everyday life. This aim is consistent with the call for scientific literacy, which argues for engaging students with science in everyday life. This paper…

Chen, Junjun; Cowie, Bronwen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The benefits of connecting school students with scientists are well documented. This paper reports how New Zealand teachers brought scientists into the classrooms through the use of videos of New Zealand scientists talking about themselves and their research. Two researchers observed lessons in 9 different classrooms in which 23 educational videos…

Luitel, Bal Chandra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
The problem of culturally decontextualised mathematics education faced by Nepali students, teachers and teacher educators has often been oriented by the view of the nature of "mathematics as a body of pure knowledge," which gives rise to an exclusive emphasis on an ideology of singularity, epistemology of objectivism, language of…

Levenson, Esther; Gal, Hagar – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
This paper considers studying changes in teachers' perspectives regarding the teaching of mathematically talented students learning in heterogeneous classes. We investigate these changes through a case study of Rona, a teacher who participated in the professional development program "From One End to the Other" held in The David Yellin…

Scataglini-Belghitar, Giovanna; Mason, John – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
During a sequence of tutorials conducted by the first author, it became evident that students were not seeing how to apply the theorem concerning a continuous function on a closed and bounded interval attaining its extreme values in situations in which it is necessary first to construct the closed and bounded interval by reasoning about properties…
