Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Hsu, Pei-Ling – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Working with scientists has been suggested as an effective way for high school students to learn science more authentically. However, several challenges hinder partnerships between students and scientists, such as intimidation issues, the complexity of scientific language, and communication barriers. The purpose of this phenomenographic study was…

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…

Tas, Yasemin; Aksoy, Gökhan; Cengiz, Ekrem – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigates the effect of design-based science (DBS) instruction on students' learning of electrical energy and students' metacognitive strategy use in science. Two classes of seventh-grade students participated in the study. DBS instruction was used in the treatment group, while the comparison group was taught the unit with…

Priemer, Burkhard; Hellwig, Julia – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Estimating measurement uncertainties is important for experimental scientific work. However, this is very often neglected in school curricula and teaching practice, even though experimental work is seen as a fundamental part of teaching science. In order to call attention to the relevance of measurement uncertainties, we developed a comprehensive…

Balta, Nuri – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study is a detailed look at the level of understanding of fundamental ideas about blackbody radiation (BBR) among physics teachers. The aim is to explore associations and ideas that teachers have regarding blackbody radiation: a concept used routinely in physics and chemistry, which is necessary to understand fundamentals of quantum physics.…

Li, Mang; Zheng, Chunping; Liang, Jyh-Chong; Zhang, Yun; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored the structural relationships among secondary school students' conceptions, self-regulation, and strategies of learning science in mainland China. Three questionnaires, namely conceptions of learning science (COLS), self-regulation of learning science (SROLS), and strategies of learning science (SLS) were developed for…

Chang, Hsin-Yi; Tzeng, Shi-Fang – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In this study, we have synthesized the research on visualization and representation to propose a model consisting of 4 major components of visualization competence in learning science: constructing, interpreting, transforming, and critiquing visualizations. We have developed and validated an assessment that measures students' visualization…

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…

Balta, Nuri; Eryilmaz, Ali – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
One way to fascinate, engage, arouse curiosity, motivate, and stimulate intellectual development in learning scientific concepts is to use counterintuitive questions. These questions make students aware of the inadequacies of their own thinking by exposing them to situations whose outcomes are inconsistent with what they would expect. In this…

Van Rooy, Wilhelmina Sabina; Chan, Eveline – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper investigates the use of multimodal representations to assess biological understanding in the final senior secondary school public examination in New South Wales, Australia. The investigation emanates from a larger Australian study concerned with the impact of disciplinary and technological innovations on science pedagogy, particularly…

Christenson, Nina; Gericke, Niklas; Rundgren, Shu-Nu Chang – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Researchers and policy-makers have recognized the importance of including and promoting socioscientific argumentation in science education worldwide. The Swedish curriculum focuses more than ever on socioscientific issues (SSI) as well. However, teaching socioscientific argumentation is not an easy task for science teachers and one of the more…

Herman, Benjamin C.; Clough, Michael P. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The study reported here investigated experienced teachers' views on several nature of science (NOS) issues 2 to 5 years after they completed a demanding secondary science teacher education program in which the NOS was an extensive and recurring component. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected and analyzed to determine study…

Emden, Markus; Sumfleth, Elke – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
In recent science education, experimentation features ever more strongly as a method of inquiry in science classes rather than as a means to illustrate phenomena. Ideas and materials to teach inquiry abound. Yet, tools for assessing students' achievement in their processes of experimentation are lacking. The present study assumes a basal,…

Blonder, Ron; Mamlok-Naaman, Rachel – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study focused on teachers' transfer of a variety of teaching methods from a teaching module on nanotechnology, which is an example of a topic outside the science curriculum, to teaching topics that are part of the chemistry curriculum. Nanotechnology is outside the science curriculum, but it was used in this study as a means to carry out a…
