Rollinde, E. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Human Orrery is a representation of the Solar System at a human scale, on which positions of planets over time are symbolized by different discs. Learners can then walk along the orbits of the planets with the right pace. This pedagogical tool uses the principles of enacted cognition to promote a better understanding of the scientific laws of…

Komatsu, Kotaro; Jones, Keith – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Task design is increasingly recognised as crucial for enhancing student learning of mathematics. Even so, and despite the significance of mathematical activity related to proofs and counterexamples in school mathematics, the task design principles underpinning students' success in proof-related activity remains under-explored in mathematics…

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…

Hwang, Jihyun; Choi, Kyong Mi; Bae, Yejun; Shin, Dong Hoon – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Many efforts have been made to reach educational equity, especially to reduce mathematics and science achievement gaps by students' socioeconomic status. Across countries, educators strive to reform traditional teacher-centered instructional approaches to more student-centered/inquiry-based instruction to improve equity in education. In this…

De Silva, Anthoni Durage Asoka; Khatibi, Ali; Ferdous Azam, S. M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The present study examined whether gender, ethnicity, instructional medium and school category differences manifest in science performance and motivation to learn science among secondary school students in Sri Lanka. The mean of five successive term test scores was used as the measure of science performance. Level of motivation in terms of six…

Fung, Dennis; Hung, Venus; Lui, Wai-mei – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study compares the learning results of three groups of secondary two (grade eight) students of a similar academic standard who participated in a teaching intervention involving different pedagogies. One hundred and forty-nine Hong Kong secondary students were chosen and divided into three groups, "whole-class teaching approach",…

Kiryak, Zeynep; Çalik, Muammer – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of the Common Knowledge Construction Model (CKCM) lesson sequence on grade 7 students' conceptual understanding of the "water pollution" topic. Within a pre-experimental (one group pre-test/post-test) research design, this study was conducted with 25 (12 females and 13 males) grade 7…

Ng, Betsy L. L.; Liu, W. C.; Wang, John C. K. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The present study focused on an in-depth understanding of student motivation and self-regulated learning in mathematics and science through cluster analysis. It examined the different learning profiles of motivational beliefs and self-regulatory strategies in relation to perceived teacher autonomy support, basic psychological needs (i.e. autonomy,…

Palha, Sonia; Dekker, Rijkje; Gravemeijer, Koeno – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
It remains difficult to foster problem-solving and mathematical-reasoning capabilities in classrooms where students and teachers are accustomed to the more traditional forms of education. Several studies suggest that this difficulty might be related to the kind of knowledge students acquire in such environments, which could be fragmented and…

Oliva, José Mª; del Mar Aragón, María; Cuesta, Josefa – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The competence of modelling as part of learning about chemical change is analysed in a sample of 35 secondary students, ages 14-15 years, during their study of a curricular unit on this topic. The teaching approach followed is model based, with frequent use of analogies and mechanical models (fruits and bowls, Lego pieces, balls of plasticine,…

Pedersen, Ida Friestad – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
Algebra is the fundamental language of mathematics, and a profound understanding of school algebra is an important prerequisite for further studies in mathematical sciences. The aim of this study is to characterize the algebraic competence of the Norwegian upper secondary school students participating in Trends in International Mathematics and…

Korner, Marianne; Hopf, Martin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
International comparisons reveal that lower-secondary-level students in Austria perform below the OECD mean in science. Guided by the search for remedies and improvements in science teaching, this study investigates whether cross-age peer tutoring is an appropriate method for teaching physics. A modern and concise definition of peer tutoring is…

Budiman, Zainol Badli; Halim, Lilia; Mohd Meerah, Subahan; Osman, Kamisah – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
Three teaching methods were compared in this study, namely a Cognitive Conflict Management Module (CCM) that is infused into Cognitive Acceleration through Science Education (CASE), (Module A) CASE without CCM (Module B) and a conventional teaching method. This study employed a pre- and post-test quasi-experimental design using non-equivalent…

Osman, Kamisah; Lee, Tien Tien – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014
The Electrochemistry topic is found to be difficult to learn due to its abstract concepts involving macroscopic, microscopic, and symbolic representation levels. Studies have shown that animation and simulation using information and communication technology (ICT) can help students to visualize and hence enhance their understanding in learning…
