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…

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…

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)…

Leavy, Aisling; Hourigan, Mairead; Carroll, Claire – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study reports entry-level mathematics attitudes of pre-service primary teachers entering an initial teacher education (ITE) program one decade apart. Attitudes of 360 pre-service primary teachers were compared to 419 pre-service teachers entering the same college of education almost one decade later. The latter experienced reform school…

Wasserman, Nicholas H.; Quint, Christa; Norris, Scott A.; Carr, Thomas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In an undergraduate Calculus III class, we explore the effect of "flipping" the instructional delivery of content on both student performance and student perceptions. Two instructors collaborated to determine daily lecture notes, assigned the same homework problems, and gave identical exams; however, compared to a more traditional…

Jao, Limin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For pre-service teachers (PSTs) who have been exposed to traditional approaches, teacher education courses can be a revelatory experience in their development as educators. This study explores if Canadian upper elementary/lower secondary (grades 4-10) PSTs change their beliefs about mathematics teaching as a result of taking a mathematics methods…

Yang, Fang-Ying; Huang, Rui-Ting; Tsai, I-Ju – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The primary purpose of this study was to explore not only the effects of epistemic beliefs in science on science-text reading but also the gender differences in epistemic beliefs and the reading process. The interactions between gender and epistemic beliefs during reading were also explored. A total of 25 university students, 13 male and 12…

Pasha-Zaidi, Nausheen; Afari, Ernest – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The current study addresses student perceptions of math and science professors in the Middle East. Gender disparity in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education continues to exist in higher education, with male professors holding a normative position. This disparity can also be seen in the United Arab Emirates. As female…

Ramnarain, Umesh Dewnarain; Ramaila, Sam – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study investigated the achievement goals orientation of first year physics students at a South African university. The mixed methods design involved a quantitative survey of 291 students using an achievement goals questionnaire and individual interviews of selected participants. Results showed that the students perceived they have a stronger…

Lin, Shu-Hui; Huang, Yun-Chen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Student attitudes toward mathematics play an important role in the teaching and learning processes of mathematics as positive attitudes correlate with higher student achievement. This paper aims to develop and explore the validity of a Chinese version of the short attitudes toward mathematics inventory (short ATMI) for Taiwanese undergraduates,…

Dreher, Anika; Kuntze, Sebastian; Lerman, Stephen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Dealing with multiple representations and their connections plays a key role for learners to build up conceptual knowledge in the mathematics classroom. Hence, professional knowledge and views of mathematics teachers regarding the use of multiple representations certainly merit attention. In particular, investigating such views of preservice…

Jin, Hui; Hokayem, Hayat; Wang, Sasha; Wei, Xin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
As China and the United States become the top two carbon emitters in the world, it is crucial for citizens in both countries to construct a sophisticated understanding of energy consumption issues. This interview study examines how U.S. and Chinese students compare in explaining and arguing about two critical energy consumption issues: burning…

Morentin, Maite; Guisasola, Jenaro – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
School visits and field trips to museums and science centres are considered a powerful learning resource given their recreational and educational potential, but visits need to be integrated into classroom programming to optimize learning. In this study, we have attempted to design and build bridges between what a school needs and what a museum can…
