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 TopHatâ„¢, that allows the instructor to engage students in solving Calculus problems…

Abramovich, Sergei; Connell, Michael – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017

The paper reflects on an earlier research on the use of technology in secondary mathematics teacher education through the lenses of newer digital tools (Wolfram Alpha, Maple), most recent standards for teaching mathematics, and recommendations for the preparation of schoolteachers. New ideas of technology integration into mathematics education…

Lesser, Lawrence; Wagler, Amy – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

This article provides tools and rationale for instructors in math and science to make their assessment and curriculum materials (more) readable for students. The tools discussed (MSWord, LexTutor, Coh-Metrix TEA) are readily available linguistic analysis applications that are grounded in current linguistic theory, but present output that can…

Levi, Inessa; Chahine, Iman; Garrett, Lauretta; Wang, Haifeng – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

Difficulties in general education mathematics courses may be attributed to many factors, primarily low proficiency in symbol manipulation, a perception that mathematics is an area which eludes mastery, a lack of engagement and effective practice. Educational technology can be a powerful aid in overcoming these factors. This work describes the…

Trinter, Christine – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

The increase in availability of educational technologies over the past few decades has not only led to new practice in teaching mathematics but also to new perspectives in research, methodologies, and theoretical frameworks within mathematics education. Hence, the amalgamation of theoretical and pragmatic considerations in digital tool design…

Abramovich, Sergei – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

The paper presents the use of spreadsheets integrated with digital tools capable of symbolic computations and graphic constructions in a master's level capstone course for secondary mathematics teachers. Such use of spreadsheets is congruent with the Type II technology applications framework aimed at the development of conceptual knowledge in the…

Good, Jonathon; Keenan, Sarah; Mishra, Punya – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016

The popular press is rife with examples of how students in the United States and around the globe are learning to program, make, and tinker. The Hour of Code, maker-education, and similar efforts are advocating that more students be exposed to principles found within computer science. We propose an expansion beyond simply teaching computational…

Armoni, Michal – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013

Abstraction is a key concept in CS, one of the most fundamental ideas underlying CS and its practice. However, teaching this soft concept to novices is a very difficult task, as discussed by many CSE experts. This paper discusses this issue, and suggests a general framework for teaching abstraction in CS to novices, a framework that would fit into…

Hossain, Mokter; Wiest, Lynda R. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013

This paper explores the use of blogs, a simple application of Web 2.0 technologies, in middle school geometry instruction. Specifically, it provides an overview of the interactive features of Web 2.0 technologies and the feasibility of using Web 2.0 technologies in geometry teaching and learning, as well as a proposed model for creating a…

Caudle, Kyle A.; Ruth, David M. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013

Teaching undergraduates the basic properties of an estimator can be difficult. Most definitions are easy enough to comprehend, but difficulties often lie in gaining a "good feel" for these properties and why one property might be more desired as compared to another property. Simulations which involve visualization of these properties can…

Fox, William – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012

The purpose of our modeling effort is to predict future outcomes. We assume the data collected are both accurate and relatively precise. For our oscillating data, we examined several mathematical modeling forms for predictions. We also examined both ignoring the oscillations as an important feature and including the oscillations as an important…

Sherrell, Linda; Malasri, Kriangsiri; Mills, David; Thomas, Allen; Greer, James – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012

From 2004-2007, the University of Memphis carried out the NSF-funded Tri-P-LETS (Three P Learning Environment for Teachers and Students) project to improve local high-school computer science curricula. The project reached a total of 58 classrooms in eleven high schools emphasizing problem solving skills, programming concepts as opposed to syntax,…

Fluck, Andrew; Ranmuthugala, Dev; Chin, Chris; Penesis, Irene – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012

Integral calculus is generally regarded as a fundamental but advanced aspect of mathematics, and it is not generally studied until students are aged about fifteen or older. Understanding the transformative potential of information and communication technology, this project undertook an investigation in four Australian schools to train students…

Herron, Sherry; Gopal, Tamilselvi – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012

We conducted a series of summer workshops on bioinformatics to increase educators' knowledge of this new field of inquiry with the assumption that their knowledge will, in turn, impact student achievement. The workshops incorporated experiential learning and self-reflection (Loucks-Horsley et al. 1998). Educators demonstrated significant increases…
