Darby-White, Tillerie; Wicker, Scott; Diack, Moustapha – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
The 21st century student learns and communicates in the virtual world. In order to meet the individual instructional needs of the students, virtual science laboratories should be researched to accomplish the goal. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a virtual chemistry laboratory in enhancing students' conceptual understanding as a…

Trumble, Jason; Dailey, Debbie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Spatial visualization and mental rotations skills are considered a strong predictor of success in STEM fields (Wai, Lubinski, & Benbow, 2009). This study analyzed the malleability and amount of change in fourth through sixth grade students using the Revised PSVT:R. Participants engaged in a STEM camp driven by maker pedagogy and focused on the…

McAlpin, Elizabeth; Shilane, David; Kalaycioglu, Selin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
According to the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (Mayer, 2009) learning with multimedia requires the integration of verbal and visual information (e.g., printed text and static images, narrated animation). Studies exploring the effects of dynamic versus static presentations yield mixed results. Few studies explore comparing dynamic versus…

Cyr, Stéphane; Charland, Patrick; Riopel, Martin; Bruyère, Marie-Hélène – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Serious video games (SVGs) are increasingly used as supplementary teaching tools for mathematics education. Several studies report their positive impact on student learning. However, these impacts are variable, and the success of the tools cannot be generalized or extended to all settings or disciplines without an in-depth look at the games…

Çekmez, Erdem; Güler, Mustafa – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
There is a large body of literature concerning the potential of dynamic geometry software (DGS) in the problem solving process. However, questions regarding how teaching should take place to prepare students to use DGS as a heuristic tool in non-routine problem situations seem to be overlooked. To address this gap in the literature, the current…

Kersey, Scott N. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Student perceptions on teaching and learning are investigated in a side-to-side comparison between traditional (closed, CER) non-free course materials and free open educational resources (OER). The primary resources being compared are textbook and automatically-graded web-based homework systems. The results are based on a 32 item survey given to…

Araujo, Rosa Cendros; Floyd, Lisa; Gadanidis, George – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
With the increasing advocacy for Computational Thinking (CT) integration in K-12 education, it is important to consider how teacher education programs could better prepare teacher candidates (TCs). At the Faculty of Education at Western University, CT has been included in the curriculum as part of the teacher education program through the course…

Rich, Kathryn M.; Yadov, Aman; Zhu, Marissa – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Moving among levels of abstraction is an important skill in mathematics and computer science, and students show similar difficulties when applying abstraction in each discipline. While computer science educators have examined ways to explicitly teach students how to consciously navigate levels of abstraction, these ideas have not been explored in…

Lobato, Joanne; Walker, Carren – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Online math videos for student learning are abundant; yet they are surprisingly uniform in their monologic, expository mode of presentation and their emphasis on procedural skill. In response, we created an alternative model of online math videos that feature the unscripted dialogue of secondary school students, who convey sources of confusion and…

Awortwe, Peter Kwamina; Nyatsikor, Maxwell Kwesi; Sarfo, Dorcas Osei – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
The study investigated the impact of using Autograph software as a tool in teaching and learning of quadratic functions on gender performance in core Mathematics for Senior High School (SHS) students in Ghana. Non-equivalent quasi-experimental design was used. The population was all second year students in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA)…

Bulut, Aykut; Isiksal-Bostan, Mine – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
According to the principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM, 2000], teaching mathematics needs well equipped teachers in terms of knowledge because of its complex structure. Moreover, teachers' knowledge and technology are an important issue to build up and enhance students' learning. Qualified teachers should know how and…

Alexander, Curby; Knezek, Gerald; Christensen, Rhonda; Tyler-Wood, Tandra – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
Declining academic achievement across U.S. schools, particularly in mathematics and science, has prompted several initiatives to increase the quality of teaching in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The National Science Foundation initiated the Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program in…

Baker, Joseph M.; Moyer-Packenham, Patricia S.; Tucker, Stephen I.; Shumway, Jessica F.; Jordan, Kerry E.; Gillam, Ronald B. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is an easy to use neuroimaging technique that is portable and maintains a liberal tolerance to movement. As such, fNIRS represents an ideal tool to observe children's neural activity as they engage in real-world classroom activities, such as the interaction with digital math apps on an iPad. Here, we…

Gunpinar, Yasemin; Pape, Stephen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways that teachers use connected classroom technology (CCT) in conjunction with the Texas Instruments Nspire calculator to potentially support achievement on Algebra problems that require translation between representations (i.e., symbolic to graphical). Four Algebra I classrooms that initially…
