Shin, Namsoo; Choi, Sung-Youn; Stevens, Shawn Y.; Krajcik, Joseph S. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
A coherent curriculum that clearly defines sets of ideas that build upon one another to meet desired learning goals can successfully support the development of meaningful understanding across time. This study explores the influence of a coherent curriculum as a systematic approach to aligning and sequencing specific ideas to support students in…

Jin, Hui; Shin, Hyo Jeong; Hokayem, Hayat; Qureshi, Farah; Jenkins, Thomas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study describes how we developed a learning progression (LP) for systems thinking in ecosystems and collected preliminary validity evidence for the LP. In particular, the LP focuses on how middle and high school students use discipline-specific systems thinking concepts (e.g. feedback loops and energy pyramid) to analyze and explain the…

Fang, Su-Chi; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Lin, Shu-Sheng – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This article proposes a theoretical framework for conceptualizing socioscientific decision making, reviews current research in this area, and intends to shed some light on the instructional design for the classroom implementation of socioscientific decision making. The framework involves 3 phases: formulate the decision-making space, posit a…

Sasson, Irit – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research apprenticeship experiences provide a uniquely authentic context for deepening participants' understanding of the nature of science and encouraging them to choose STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) studies and careers. This study evaluated a STEM program for high school students who engaged in science research with…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; Arellano-García, Yurdia; Hernández-Moreno, Antonia; Nava-Guzmán, Cristian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the importance of emotions in the professional life of teachers, there is not much research on daily emotions of mathematics teachers beyond general research on mathematics anxiety of mathematics teachers and pre-service teachers in elementary school. Using the theory of cognitive structure of emotions, this qualitative case study research…

Arican, Muhammet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study investigated preservice middle school mathematics teachers' (PSTs) understanding of proportional and nonproportional relationships and their abilities to differentiate these relationships from each other. The PSTs' abilities to interpret and represent proportional and nonproportional situations and solution strategies were also…

Kuo, Yen-Ruey; Tuan, Hsiao-Lin; Chin, Chi-Chin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aimed to explore low and non-low achievers' motivation towards science learning among 8th graders in two public schools in central Taiwan under inquiry-based instruction. Mixed design research methods were adopted, and students were divided into experimental (n = 56) and control groups (n = 45). Six non-consecutive inquiry units…

Summers, Ryan; Wang, Shuai; Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad; Said, Ziad – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Surveying is a common methodology in science education research, including cross-national and cross-cultural comparisons. The literature surrounding students' attitudes toward science, in particular, illustrates the prevalence of efforts to translate instruments with the eventual goal of comparing groups. This paper utilizes survey data from a…

Yerdelen, Sündüs; Sungur, Semra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study aimed to investigate the role of students' classroom learning environment perceptions and teacher effectiveness in 7th grade students' self-regulation in science classes. Students' self-regulation was examined in terms of self-efficacy, achievement goals, and metacognitive strategy use which constitute important components of…

Russo, James; Hopkins, Sarah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research suggests that teachers of mathematics are frequently reluctant to pose challenging tasks to students. Reasons for this reluctance include fears of negative student reactions, time and resource constraints, and a lack of relevant teacher content knowledge. The current study involved interviewing three early primary-grade (elementary)…

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…

Ehrenfeld, Nadav; Heyd-Metzuyanim, Einat – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper examines the mechanisms by which students' cultural background plays an active role in the study of mathematics. It does so with the aid of two main constructs: hybrid discourse and intellective identities. At the center of the article is an analysis of a classroom episode from a preparatory program in which adult ultra-orthodox Jews…

Chen, Chin-Sung; Lin, Jing-Wen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study explored how a 2-year, maker-centered science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) project-based learning (M-STEM-PjBL) curriculum aimed at leading students to be makers changed students, science teachers, and a rural middle school in Taiwan, where teachers were stressed due to the low birth rate and low grades in the…

Hsu, Pi-Sui; Lee, Eric Monsu; Ginting, Silvia; Smith, Thomas J.; Kraft, Carol – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The purposes of this qualitative case study were to describe the design and the development of a maker-centered learning environment and curriculum by an interdisciplinary team, and to explore how an after-school program that incorporated Maker education and scientific argumentation influenced middle school youths' attitudes toward science in the…

Gómez, David Maximiliano; Dartnell, Pablo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The present study uses a short, computerized task to investigate individual differences among middle school students in terms of the intuitions and strategies that they use to compare fractions. To tap into their intuitions about fractions, students were presented with pairs of fractions on the screen for a limited time of 10 s. Fraction pairs to…
