Lutovac, Sonja; Kaasila, Raimo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Mathematics education research has placed great emphasis on teacher identity, examining both pre- and in-service teachers, and within these cohorts, specialised mathematics teachers and non-specialists such as elementary teachers. Extensive research has already been done; hence, this paper discusses possible future directions for research on…

Wang, Cheng-Lung; Liou, Pey-Yan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine the pattern of the relationships among motivational beliefs and science achievement of 8th grade Taiwanese students, given that the students in Taiwan have high science academic achievement but low motivational beliefs in science learning on a series of international large-scale assessments. Three…

Heshmati, Saeideh; Kersting, Nicole; Sutton, Taliesin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored the design and implementation of the Cover-up and Un-cover games, two manipulative-based fraction games, in 14 fifth-grade classrooms. We examined how the fraction concepts were integrated into the game design and explored the nature of teacher-student interactions during games using lesson videos. Our examination showed that…

Kazemi, Farhad; Rafiepour, Abolfazl – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The main purpose of this study was to develop a scale for measuring content knowledge (CK) and pedagogy content knowledge (PCK) of in-service elementary teachers on mathematical fractions. Another aim of this study was to consider whether CK and PCK are separate from each other, or are in a single body. Therefore, a scale containing 22 items about…

Lee, Wei-Kuang; Wu, Chao-Jung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This study explored the processes in which adult readers integrate text-figure information when reading geometric descriptions. Because geometry conveys rich spatial information, we investigated the reading scanpaths as text- or figure-directed and the given-new effects. Eye movement data from 65 college student participants showed that…

Bravo-Torija, Beatriz; Jiménez-Aleixandre, María-Pilar – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This paper outlines an initial learning progression for the use of evidence to support scientific arguments in the context of decision-making. Use of evidence is a central feature of knowledge evaluation and, therefore, of argumentation. The proposal is based on the literature on argumentation and use of evidence in decision-making contexts. The…

Premo, Joshua; Cavagnetto, Andy; Lamb, Richard – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
A classroom's social environment and student dispositions towards social interaction together exert a substantial influence on academic outcomes. The strength of this effect is highlighted by research showing the positive effect of cooperative learning on student achievement, but can also be seen in the contribution that student social…

Lemonidis, Charalampos; Tsakiridou, Helen; Meliopoulou, Ioanna – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of the present study is to examine content knowledge (CK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of Greek teachers in number sense and specifically in mental calculations with rational numbers (fractions, decimals and percentages). Examined within the framework of CK were the type of strategies employed by teachers and the extent of…

Lingefjärd, Thomas; Farahani, Djamshid – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In understanding upper secondary school students' interpretations of information in graphical representations of a distance--time graph and an ECG graph, little attention has been paid to the analysis of the condition of the conceptual development related to their utterances. Understanding this better can help improve the teaching of…

Soneira, Carlos; González-Calero, José Antonio; Arnau, David – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
When translating word problems into equations, a common error consists of using the same letter to refer to two different quantities. This error, called multiple referents for the unknown, can be connected to the existence of deictic or indexical expressions within the problem statement. This paper aims to analyse the influence of indexical…

Corcoran, Roisin P. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of the ORIGO Stepping Stones program in a large suburban school district in the Midwestern U.S.. The sample included 11 elementary schools that implemented the program during the 2013-2016 school years. Findings are presented from teacher surveys, classroom observations, and analysis…

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…

Uchida, Akitoshi; Mori, Kazuo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
International surveys repeatedly showed that Japanese children were good at mathematics but disliking it. We hypothesized there were a considerable number of "fake math-dislikes" among Japanese students who claimed they disliked mathematics explicitly but accepted it implicitly. To examine this hypothesis, we administered questionnaires…

Pino-Fan, Luis R.; Font, Vicenç; Gordillo, Wilson; Larios, Víctor; Breda, Adriana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In this article, we present the results of the administration of a questionnaire designed to evaluate the understanding that civil engineering students have of the "antiderivative." The questionnaire was simultaneously administered to samples of Mexican and Colombian students. For the analysis of the answers, we used some theoretical and…

Tiruneh, Dawit Tibebu; De Cock, Mieke; Elen, Jan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Fostering the development of students' critical thinking (CT) is regarded as an essential outcome of higher education. However, despite the large body of research on this topic, there has been little consensus on how educators best support the development of CT. In view of some of the controversies surrounding the teaching of CT skills in higher…
