Tiruneh, Dawit Tibebu; De Cock, Mieke; Weldeslassie, Ataklti G.; Elen, Jan; Janssen, Rianne – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Although the development of critical thinking (CT) is a major goal of science education, adequate emphasis has not been given to the measurement of CT skills in specific science domains such as physics. Recognizing that adequately assessing CT implies the assessment of both domain-specific and domain-general CT skills, this study reports on the…

Thao-Do, Thi Phuong; Bac-Ly, Dang Thi; Yuenyong, Chokchai – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Constructivism was introduced to Vietnam through many ways such as workshops, books, the Internet, and so on. However, due to the lack of professional education, fundamental ideas of constructivist learning perhaps were missing or neglected through classroom activities. Furthermore, due to the influence of culture and society, Vietnamese…

Ramnarain, Umesh Dewnarain; Ramaila, Sam – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study investigated the achievement goals orientation of first year physics students at a South African university. The mixed methods design involved a quantitative survey of 291 students using an achievement goals questionnaire and individual interviews of selected participants. Results showed that the students perceived they have a stronger…

Chin, Chi-Chin; Yang, Wei-Cheng; Tuan, Hsiao-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study explored the effects of arguing to learn in a socioscientific context on the fundamental and derived components of reading, writing, and science understanding as integral parts of science literacy. We adopted mixed-methods in which the 1-group pretest-posttest design with supplemental interviews and questionnaires. The pretest evaluated…

Weldeana, Hailu Nigus – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Several studies that suggest for the inclusion of students' cultural background into the mathematics curriculum fail to address gender roles within cultures and the impact it will have on the understanding of academic mathematics. This paper reports a study of high school students' involvement in everyday material production and its connection to…

Qhobela, Makomosela; Kolitsoe Moru, Eunice – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The classroom practices of science teachers are indicative of their beliefs and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). PCK is an amalgam of knowledge about subject matter, pedagogy, and contextual issues. This article identifies areas where physics teachers in Lesotho may need professional development support by addressing the research question: How…

Yang, Kai-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This study used phenomenography, a qualitative method, to investigate Taiwanese mathematics teachers' conceptions of school mathematics, school statistics, and their differences. To collect data, we interviewed five mathematics teachers by open questions. They also responded to statements drawn on mathematical/statistical conceptions and…

Liu, Shu-Chiu; Lin, Huann-shyang – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
This study explored environmental worldviews of selected undergraduate students in Taiwan and located the associations of these worldviews with science. The "environment" is represented as nature or the natural world, as opposed to the social and spiritual world. The participants were undergraduate students (14 science and 15 nonscience…

Hu, Bi Ying; Fuentes, Sarah Quebec; Wang, Chun Yan; Ye, Feiwei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
In 2001, the Chinese Ministry of Education issued Guidelines for Preschool Education (GPE) (trial version) to call on early childhood practitioners to use a child-centered and play-based approach to teaching and learning. The guidelines also include mathematics within the science domain and described its standards in a way that significantly…
