Polly, Drew – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

American students continue to struggle on measures of student achievement. This study employed Hierarchical Linear Modeling to estimate a two-level model and examine the influences of calculator use and teachers' instructional practices on student achievement in mathematics amongst first-grade students. The outcome variable was mathematics test…

Kuhn, G. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) was tasked with identifying the key science concepts for science literacy in K-12 students in America (AAAS, 1990, 1993). The AAAS Atlas of Science Literacy (2001) has organized roughly half of these science concepts or benchmarks into fifty flow charts. Each flow chart or strand map…

Holmboe, Christian; Scott, Phil H. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005

Within-group similarities and between-group differences are used to illustrate the socio-cultural nature of the concept-building process in highly collaborative computer science classrooms. Simultaneously, a social constructivist perspective is used to describe the individual aspects of this development. The study uses written explanations from…

Stewart, William J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Describes a system in which the computer, by interacting with an information bank, produces an individual or group diagnostic profile specifying the nature of the factors that contribute to mathematics difficulties and student variability. The computer also generates suggestions for remediating the learning difficulties and accommodating student…
