Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Bogiages, Christopher A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers often struggle to utilize reform-based teaching strategies in their first few years of teaching for many reasons (Ball, Thames & Phelps, Journal of Teacher Education 59, 389-407, 2008; Berlin & White, "International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education" 8, 97-115, 2010; Frykholm & Glasson, "School…

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…

Ubuz, Behiye; Erdogan, Beril – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, effects of 2 physical manipulative instructions on students' geometrical knowledge acquisition were compared. Geometry topics' presentation was conducted via using physical manipulative and the practice stage in two different forms: (1) practice consisting of problems supported with explicit metacognitive questions and (2) practice…

Baranovich, Diana-Lea; Fong, Pei-Chin; Hutagalung, Fonny – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The study aims to have a better understanding on the parental scaffolding in mathematics homework among preschoolers in the Malaysian context. This is achieved by exploring to what extent Malaysian parents provide scaffolding to their preschoolers in mathematics homework interactions. Investigations about the strategies employed by the parents…

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)…

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…

Paige, Kathryn; Hardy, Graham – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE) is an innovative strand of the most recent Australian Curriculum: Science. The introduction of SHE is welcome and comes at a time when Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is under increasing scrutiny both in Australia and across the world, with some commentators identifying a…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Sitong; Chen, Bo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Through a questionnaire survey, this study aims to investigate the contributions of different sources in developing science teachers' practical knowledge of teaching with practical work. The framework of this study is based on the conceptualization of PCK and ten possible sources of science teachers' PCK related to teaching with practical work.…

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…

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…

Foster, Colin; Inglis, Matthew – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Mathematics teacher continuing professional development (CPD) is widely recognised to encompass more than attending courses and engaging in formal activities with colleagues in school. Teachers' professional reading is an under-researched aspect of CPD, which takes place out of view, but which has the potential to shape teachers' beliefs and…

Park, Mimi; Lee, Eun-Jung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Equiprobability bias (EB) is one of the frequently observed misconceptions in probability education in K-12 and can be affected by a problem context. As future teachers, preservice teachers need to have a stable understanding of probability and to have the knowledge to identify EB in their students regardless of the problem context. However, there…

Wei, Bing; Ou, Yitong – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao, in the Greater China Region, have similar yet different educational systems and curriculum standards, and each has performed well in international tests for science achievement. Using revised Bloom's taxonomy, this study analyzed and explored the similarities and differences among these four Chinese…

Achmetli, Kay; Schukajlow, Stanislaw; Rakoczy, Katrin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
An effective way to improve students' mathematical knowledge is to have them construct multiple solutions for real-world problems. Prior knowledge is a relevant prerequisite for learning outcomes, and the experience of competence is a basic need that has to be fulfilled to improve achievement. In the current experimental study (N = 307), we…

Dolma, Phuntsho; Nutchey, David; Watters, James J.; Chandra, Vinesh – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Reform of mathematics education has been in focus in many countries including those in major economic transition. This paper reports a segment of a study which was conducted in Bhutan, where a reformed elementary mathematics curriculum has been recently introduced. The reformed curriculum is based on social constructivism and its design has been…
