Daher, Wajeeh; Saifi, Abdel-Gani – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The constructivist learning approach is suggested as a means for facilitating students' learning of science and increasing their participation in this learning. Several studies have shown the contribution of this approach to the different aspects of students' learning of science, though little research has examined the contribution of this…

Yen, Miao-Hsuan; Wang, Chia-Yu; Chang, Wen-Hua; Chen, Sufen; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Liu, Tzu-Chien – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The boom in Internet and communication technology has accelerated change in information delivery channels from paper to networked, digital displaying devices. Reading electronically has altered the cognitive and metacognitive processes readers use to approach science texts. Assessing reading in a digitized environment also opens up opportunities…

Wu, Li-Chen; Chao, Li-ling; Cheng, Pi-Yun; Tuan, Hsiao-Lin; Guo, Chorng-Jee – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to probe the differences of perceived professional teaching competence between elementary school math/science teachers in Taiwan who are majored in math/science and those who are not. A researcher-developed Math/Science Teachers' Professional Development Questionnaire was used in a nationwide survey, using a two-stage…

Caussarieu, Aude; Tiberghien, Andrée – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The understanding of measurement is related to the understanding of the nature of science--one of the main goals of current international science teaching at all levels of education. This case study explores how a first-year university physics course deals with measurement uncertainties in the light of an epistemological analysis of measurement.…

Tippett, Christine D.; Milford, Todd M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in early childhood education is an area currently given little attention in the literature, which is unfortunate since young children are natural scientists and engineers. Here, we outline our mixed-methods design-based research investigation of a pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) classroom where two…

Ambusaidi, Abdullah; Al-Farei, Khalid – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
A 30-item questionnaire was designed to determine Omani science teachers' attitudes toward teaching science and whether or not these attitudes differ according to gender and teaching experiences of teachers. The questionnaire items were divided into 3 domains: classroom preparation, managing hands-on science, and development appropriateness. The…

Taskin, Vahide; Bernholt, Sascha; Parchmann, Ilka – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Chemical representations serve as a communication tool not only in exchanges between scientists but also in chemistry lessons. The goals of the present study were to measure the extent of student teachers' knowledge about chemical representations, focusing on chemical formulae and structures in particular, and to explore which factors related to…

Kilinc, Ahmet; Kelly, Thomas; Eroglu, Baris; Demiral, Umit; Kartal, Tezcan; Sonmez, Arzu; Demirbag, Mehmet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For science teachers using the discourse of socioscientific issues (SSI), it is important to make a decision as to whether when and how to disclose their own positions. The existing limited literature shows that science teachers prefer one of four roles during SSI discourse: sticker to facts, imposer, democracy advocator, and committed…

Tesfamariam, Gebrekidan Mebrahtu; Lykknes, Annette; Kvittingen, Lise – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In theory, practical work is an established part of university-level chemistry courses. However, mainly due to budget constraints, large class size, time constraints and inadequate teacher preparations, practical activities are frequently left out from chemistry classroom instruction in most developing countries. Small-scale chemistry (SSC)…

Barahmand, Ali – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In this article, attempts were made to examine students' thinking about the concepts of infinity and their ideas about transiting from finite to infinite states through the concept of limits of sequences. The participants included 78 senior high-school students ranging in age between 17 and 19 years old. The data were collected through a…

Maurício, Paulo; Valente, Bianor; Chagas, Isabel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In this work, we present a teaching-learning sequence on colour intended to a pre-service elementary teacher programme informed by History and Philosophy of Science. Working in a socio-constructivist framework, we made an excursion on the history of colour. Our excursion through history of colour, as well as the reported misconception on colour…

Osman, Enja; BouJaoude, Saouma; Hamdan, Hiba – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Lebanese educators claim that middle and secondary school students exhibit poor understanding of genetics due to misconceptions and difficulties that hinder progression in conceptual understanding of major genetics concepts and phenomena across different grade levels. They attributed these problems to Lebanon's ill-structured genetics curriculum…
