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…

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…

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…

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…

Hsu, Yu-Chang; Ching, Yu-Hui; Baldwin, Sally – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
This research explored how K-16 educators learned physical computing, and developed as maker-educators in an online graduate course. With peer support and instructor guidance, these educators designed maker projects using Scratch and Makey Makey, and developed educational maker proposals with plans of teaching the topics of their choice in STEAM…

Curtis, Anthony – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
Student affect was measured and compared with their overall learning outcome scores. There was a significant difference among the student affect scores (F = 4.52; df = 3, 444; p < 0.01). Among the affect items measured, only Progress Monitoring Information was significantly regressed on overall learning outcome scores (F = 5.45; df = 1, 103; p…

Shepherd, Rebecca; Shifflett, Joan; Lusby, Thomas; Waitkus, Helen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
The use of web based software for learning opportunities abound, but what impact do they have on students' mathematics learning beyond the initial experience? This 2-phase, 17-month case study of 50 freshmen investigates the use of web-based learning and face-to-face lecture on students' future academic achievement in mathematics. First, the study…

McAlpin, Elizabeth; Shilane, David; Kalaycioglu, Selin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
Large foundational courses delivered in lecture halls are disadvantaged in eliciting participation from all students and maintaining engagement throughout the class session. We introduced a question-driven method facilitated by an audience response system, namely TopHat™, that allows the instructor to engage students in solving Calculus problems…

Serfaty de Markus, Alicia – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
This quasi-treatment study, using a non-equivalent group design, explored how a set of animations related to various concepts in algebra impacted students' ability to learn as measured by changes in quiz and test scores. The concepts that were investigated were addition and subtraction of rational expressions, solving equations involving rational…

Fital-Akelbek, Sandra; Akelbek, Mahmud – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2018
In this mixed method study we investigate the impact of recorded lectures on passing rates in an online math course. For three years, we collected data from approximately 380 students enrolled in a first-year undergraduate online course, College Algebra. The data was used to compare the amount of time students spent watching recorded lectures and…

Smith, Ryan; Shin, Dongjo; Kim, Somin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
In this paper, we propose the mathematical cognitive technology noticing framework for examining how mathematics teachers evaluate, select, and modify mathematical cognitive technology to use in their classrooms. Our framework is based on studies of professional and curricular noticing and data collected in a study that explored how secondary…
