Kosiol, Timo; Rach, Stefanie; Ufer, Stefan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Students' personal interest is hypothesized to be an important resource for learning, but only a few empirical studies have investigated the effect of interest on academic achievement and motivational outcomes of university studies. This lack of empirical studies is remarkable, because inadequate individual prerequisites are considered one reason…

Olsher, Shai; Even, Ruhama – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study examined the changes that a group of nine Israeli 7th grade mathematics teachers, who collaborated on editing the textbook they used in class, chose to make in the textbook. Data sources included the project website (using a modified wiki-book platform), the group meetings, interviews with the teachers, individual papers written by the…

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…

Tan, Cheng Yong; Hew, Khe Foon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study critically examines if digital divides, comprising access to and use of information technology (IT) in two spheres (schools and at home), affect student achievement in Confucian heritage cultures (CHCs). The sample comprised 38,158 students from 1030 schools in seven CHCs who participated in Program for International Student Assessment…

Ayan, Rukiye; Isiksal Bostan, Mine – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In this study, we investigate sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students' achievement in nonlinear (quadratic or cubic) proportional problems regarding length, area, and volume of enlarged figures. In addition, we examine students' solution strategies for the problems and obstacles that prevent students from answering the problems correctly by…

Adkins, Michael; Noyes, Andrew – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The mathematical preparedness of science undergraduates has been a subject of debate for some time. This paper investigates the relationship between school mathematics attainment and degree outcomes in biology and chemistry across England, a much larger scale of analysis than has hitherto been reported in the literature. A unique dataset which…

Finau, Teukava; Treagust, David F.; Won, Mihye; Chandrasegaran, A. L. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper presents the effects of a cognitive acceleration program in mathematics classes on Tongan students' achievements, motivation and self-regulation. Cognitive Acceleration in Mathematics Education (CAME) is a program developed at King's College and implemented worldwide with the aim of improving students' thinking skills, mathematics…

Ng, Chi-hung Clarence – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Using a sample of 310 Year 10 Chinese students from Hong Kong, this survey study examined the effects of multiple goals in learning mathematics. Independent variables were mastery, performance-approach, performance-avoidance, and pro-social goals. Dependent variables included perceived classroom goal structures, teacher's support, learning motives…

Safadi, Rafi' – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
I examined how well a self-diagnosis activity engages students in knowledge-integration processes, and its impact on students' mathematical achievements. The self-diagnosis activity requires students to self-diagnose their solutions to problems that they have solved on their own--namely, to identify where they went wrong and to explain the nature…

Hu, Xiang; Leung, Frederick K. S.; Teng, Yuan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The results of international large-scale assessments have shown that countries vary considerably in their mathematics performance. Culture has been suggested as a possible cause for the national difference, but insufficient empirical research has been conducted to investigate the effect of culture on mathematics achievement. Based on Hofstede's…

Hwang, Jihyun; Choi, Kyong Mi; Bae, Yejun; Shin, Dong Hoon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Many efforts have been made to reach educational equity, especially to reduce mathematics and science achievement gaps by students' socioeconomic status. Across countries, educators strive to reform traditional teacher-centered instructional approaches to more student-centered/inquiry-based instruction to improve equity in education. In this…

Yao, Yiling; Kong, Qiping; Cai, Jinfa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Students in Shanghai ranked at the top in mathematics on the past two assessments of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA). However, even though Asian students in general, and Chinese students in particular, ranked at the top in mathematics, we know little about Shanghai students' subjective well-being (SWB). This paper reports…

Corcoran, Roisin P. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of the ORIGO Stepping Stones program in a large suburban school district in the Midwestern U.S.. The sample included 11 elementary schools that implemented the program during the 2013-2016 school years. Findings are presented from teacher surveys, classroom observations, and analysis…

Uchida, Akitoshi; Mori, Kazuo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
International surveys repeatedly showed that Japanese children were good at mathematics but disliking it. We hypothesized there were a considerable number of "fake math-dislikes" among Japanese students who claimed they disliked mathematics explicitly but accepted it implicitly. To examine this hypothesis, we administered questionnaires…

Jacinto, Hélia; Carreira, Susana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study offers a view on students' technology-based problem solving activity through the lens of a theoretical model which accounts for the relationship between mathematical and technological knowledge in successful problem solving. This study takes a qualitative approach building on the work of a 13-year-old girl as an exemplary case of the…
