Albadi, Nouf Mohammed; Harkins, Jean; O'Toole, John Mitchell – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Recent research in science education for learners whose first language is Arabic suggests that learning in the mother tongue can reduce learner misconceptions, but there has been little research into the comprehensibility of science texts where Arabic is the language of instruction. This mixed-methods study describes the perceptions of substantial…

Becker, Sandra; Jacobsen, Michele – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Makerspaces provide a viable option for constructing and sharing knowledge in schools. Inherent in the designing, tinkering, and playing that learners engage in through making are competencies, such as the ability to create, problem solve, and innovate, decreed as critical by education policymakers. This paper summarizes results from a study in a…

Rosenfeld, Sherman; Yayon, Malka; Halevi, Ronit; Blonder, Ron – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Maker movement has started to influence the field of science education. However, a tension exists between the movement's informal grassroots learning emphasis on open-ended personalized projects and the requirements of the formal and standardized science education curriculum. This study explores how high school chemistry teachers in Israel…

Karpudewan, Mageswary; Roth, Wolff-Michael – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Recent studies emphasize the importance of learning science while considering multiple perspectives on environment, society, economy, and technology, which allows learners to relate what they do in the classroom to the world beyond. In this study, 68 12-year-old primary students from 1 Malaysian school were followed while they engaged in a science…

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…

Dhindsa, Harkirat S.; Salleh, Siti-Zahrani Binti Haji Md – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Students who study science in single-sex and coeducational schools have attracted lots of attention from the education community. However, changes to students' attitudes toward science as they progress to higher grades in these schools are not clearly understood. The aim of this study was to compare the changes in attitudes toward science among…
