Huang, Tien-Chi; Lin, Weijane; Yueh, Hsiu-Ping – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Environmental education is intended to increase public awareness and knowledge about environmental issues and enhance individuals' problem-solving and decision-making skills by tackling problems in the real world. "Maker education," on the contrary, mostly relies on "problem-based" and "project-based learning"…

Braga, Marco; Guttmann, Gustavo – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The introduction of makerspaces in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education caused new challenges in research: learning in this innovative environment and the exchange of knowledge. The collaboration is the essence of most parts of activities in these spaces, and the exchange of information is the way to learning. It is usual to…

Becker, Sandra; Jacobsen, Michele – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Makerspaces provide a viable option for constructing and sharing knowledge in schools. Inherent in the designing, tinkering, and playing that learners engage in through making are competencies, such as the ability to create, problem solve, and innovate, decreed as critical by education policymakers. This paper summarizes results from a study in a…

Ke, Fengfeng; Clark, Kathleen M.; Uysal, Seyda – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this design-based research project, we investigated how and to what extent participating in architectural building and problem solving via a simulation game-based learning platform (called E-Rebuild) would facilitate mathematical practices of middle-school students in the informal learning setting. This study encompasses 2 iterative design…

Rosenfeld, Sherman; Yayon, Malka; Halevi, Ronit; Blonder, Ron – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Maker movement has started to influence the field of science education. However, a tension exists between the movement's informal grassroots learning emphasis on open-ended personalized projects and the requirements of the formal and standardized science education curriculum. This study explores how high school chemistry teachers in Israel…

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…

Koh, Joyce Hwee Ling – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Research studies have found that mathematics teachers face challenges when designing technology-integrated lessons to support mathematical inquiry with authentic problems. This suggests that teachers need to develop technological pedagogical knowledge (TPACK) or their professional knowledge for technology integration. Drawing upon the concept of…

Wang, Zhaoyun; McDougall, Douglas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study examined and compared the intended mathematics curricula according to topic coverage, focus, coherence, and learning progression in grades 1-12 within China and the province of Ontario, Canada. The findings show that the overall topics in the two curricula are similar: Chinese curriculum covers 78 topics out of 79 while the Ontario…

Sia, Carolyn Jia Ling; Lim, Chap Sam; Chew, Cheng Meng; Kor, Liew Kee – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Cognitive model [CM] is the description of individual's problem-solving method on selected tasks at a precise level to make meaningful inference on his/her strengths and weaknesses. CM serves as a foundation in developing a cognitive diagnostic assessment [CDA] that links the interpretation of test score to the attributes. This study employed the…

Davidson, Aylie; Herbert, Sandra; Bragg, Leicha A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Attention to mathematical reasoning in curriculum standards is part of an international trend, but identifying and understanding reasoning continues to challenge teachers. We report on one component of an Australia-wide initiative supporting teachers to implement innovative pedagogies. This paper contains insights from design research that focused…
