Eidelman, L.; Hazzan, O. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008

Worldwide surveys indicate that the number of women studying undergraduate-level Computer Science is constantly decreasing. Based on data collected in Israel, significant differences were found in the percentages of female high school students studying advanced-level Computer Science among different sectors. More specifically, while the percentage…

Sagy, Ornit; Hazzan, Orit – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2007

This work examines the Israeli National Informatics-Computer Science (CS) Olympiad from the perspective of diversity. A conspicuous phenomena in this olympiad (as well as in other science olympiads) is that very few females participate in the national competition, and none has ever represented the country in any international competition. When…

Hazzan, Orit; Hadar, Irit – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2005

This article presents research on students' understanding of basic concepts in Graph Theory. Students' understanding is analyzed through the lens of the theoretical framework of reducing abstraction (Hazzan, 1999). As it turns out, in spite of the relative simplicity of the concepts that are introduced in the introductory part of a traditional…

Kolikant, Yifat Ben-David – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004

Computer Science formal education brings together old-timers from two computer-literate cultures. The curriculum is oriented toward the academic community, whose interest is in the abstraction, solution, and proofs of algorithmic problems, whereas many students are technology users, whose main interest is the manipulation of the products of…

Barak, Moshe – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004

The intent of this study was to investigate the impact of introducing computerized means, mainly simulation and the Internet, on teaching and learning electronics in Israeli high schools. Computers in electronics studies are, at the same time, part of the subject matter learned and a means for teaching and learning. Data were collected through…
