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…

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…

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…

Francisco, John M.; Hahkioniemi, Markus – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
There is a growing movement toward the introduction of algebra in early grades. This is supported by an increasing number of research studies that have reported success in getting young students to "do" mathematics considered beyond their reach. Yet, the consensus is that more research is needed to provide insights into the processes by which…

Higgins, Joanna; Parsons, Ro – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
Intervention at scale with the aim of improving student participation, engagement and outcomes in mathematics education is a challenge for educational policy makers and reformers. This article argues that an iterative annual cycle of policy formulation, implementation and evaluation enabled ongoing adjustments to the strategic focus, the…

Cowie, Bronwen; Jones, Alister; Otrel-Cass, Kathrin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
International assessment data paints a complex picture of the engagement and achievement of New Zealand students in science. New Zealand was second only to Finland in the top achievers group in PISA 2006, but it also has one of the widest spreads in student achievement, particularly in relation to Mori and Pasifika students. Thus, the challenges…

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…

Lim, Chap Sam; Presmeg, Norma – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2011
This paper discusses a teaching dilemma faced by mathematics teachers in the Malaysian Chinese primary schools in coping with the latest changes in language policy. In 2003, Malaysia launched a new language policy of teaching mathematics using English as the language of instruction in all schools. However, due to the complex sociocultural demands…

Papadopoulos, Ioannis – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The issue of the area of irregular shapes is absent from the modern mathematical textbooks in elementary education in Greece. However, there exists a collection of books written for educational purposes by famous Greek scholars dating from the eighteenth century, which propose certain techniques concerning the estimation of the area of such…

Milford, Todd; Ross, Shelley P.; Anderson, John O. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) has been developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development to provide participating nations with internationally comparative mean literacy scores in reading, mathematics, and science for students nearing the end of compulsory schooling. The number of nations from the…
