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…

Ibrahim, Ahmed; Aulls, Mark W.; Shore, Bruce M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Inquiry engagement is a newly defined construct that represents the participation in carrying out practices of science and engineering to achieve learning outcomes and is influenced by learners' personalities and teachers' roles. Expectancy value theory posits that attainment values are important components of task values that, in turn, directly…

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…

Pamuk, Savas; Sungur, Semra; Oztekin, Ceren – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study adopted a cross-sectional and correlational research design in an attempt to add our understanding of student- and teacher-level factors that help explain variability in students' science achievement to the existing literature. More specifically, the present article examined students' science achievement in relation to their…

Prieto, Elena; Dugar, Nicola – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Australia currently faces a skill shortage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professions unlikely to improve if the current trend of low enrolments in high-level mathematics in secondary school continues. Many factors seem to contribute to this trend, and amongst them, research recognises student "attitudes"…

Tas, Yasemin; Sungur, Semra; Oztekin, Ceren – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The aim of this study was to develop and validate Science Homework Scale (SHS) which assesses middle-school (grades 6-8) students' perceptions of teachers' homework practices and homework self-regulation in science. Students' perceptions of teachers' homework practices included homework quality and feedback on homework while students' homework…

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…

Simpson, Amber; Che, S. Megan; Bridges, William C., Jr. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Recently, single-sex classes within public coeducational schools have proliferated across the USA; yet, we still know little about whether and how single-sex science classes influence adolescents' attitude and affect toward science. This exploratory study expands upon our current understanding by investigating the extent in which female and male…

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…

Huang, Neng-Tang Norman; Chiu, Li-Jia; Hong, Jon-Chao – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The strong humanistic and ethics-oriented philosophy of Confucianism tends to lead people influenced by these principles to undervalue the importance of hands-on practice and creativity in education. GreenMech, a science and technology contest, was implemented to encourage real-world, hands-on problem solving in an attempt to mitigate this effect.…

Larkin, Kevin; Jorgensen, Robyn – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Accessing children's feelings and attitudes towards mathematics is a challenging proposition since methods for data collection may be fraught in terms of bias and power relations. This article explores a method of collecting information from young students about their attitudes towards mathematics using iPads, and a video diary technique not…

Chen, Sufen; Huang, Chih-Chi; Chou, Te-Lien – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study explored the influence of experimental goal setting and planning on the attitudes toward science, self-efficacy, inquiry performance, and achievement of students with low academic performance. A total of 71 students aged 16-18 were randomly divided into a treatment group (with goal setting and planning) and a control group (without goal…

Antink-Meyer, Allison; Bartos, Stephen; Lederman, Judith S.; Lederman, Norman G. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Recent years have witnessed a dramatic rise in the number of middle and high school students from Asian countries participating in U.S.-based summer experiences (Perlez & Gao, 2013). Although summer science camps have been shown to improve students' attitudes and interests related to science and science learning (Bhattacharyya, Mead &…
