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…

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…

Straub, Jeremy; Marsh, Ronald; Whalen, David – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
Project-based learning and interdisciplinary projects present an opportunity for students to learn both technical skills and other skills which are relevant to their workplace success. This paper presents an assessment of the educational impact of the OpenOrbiter program, a student-run, interdisciplinary CubeSat (a type of small satellite with…

Avancena, Aimee Theresa; Nishihara, Akinori – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
Computer science for high school faces many challenging issues. One of these is whether the students possess the appropriate cognitive ability for learning the fundamentals of computer science. Online tests were created based on known cognitive factors and fundamental algorithms and were implemented among the second grade students in the…

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,…

Lin, Janet Mei-Chuen; Yang, Mei-Ching – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
In this study half of 52 sixth graders learned to program in MSWLogo and the other half in Drape. An analysis of students' test scores revealed that Drape (an iconic language) seemed to have a steeper learning curve than MSWLogo (a textual language). However, as students gradually became more familiar with either language, the difference in…

Shubert, Charles; Ceraj, Ivica; Riley, Justin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
The advancement of computer technology used for research is creating the need to change the way classes are taught in higher education. "Bringing Research Tools into the Classroom" has become a major focus of the work of the Office of Educational Innovation and Technology (OEIT) for the Dean of Undergraduate Education (DUE) at the…

Richardson, William H., Jr. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
Computational precision is sometimes given short shrift in a first programming course. Treating this topic requires discussing integer and floating-point number representations and inaccuracies that may result from their use. An example of a moderately simple programming problem from elementary statistics was examined. It forced students to…

Armoni, Michal; Gal-Ezer, Judith – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
Nondeterminism is an essential concept in mathematics and one of the important concepts in computer science. It is also among the most abstract ones. Thus, many students find it difficult to cope with. In this article, we describe some didactic considerations, which guided the development of a "Computational Models" course for high school…

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…

Vodounon, Maurice A. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004
The primary purpose of this study was to analyze different perceptions displayed by novice programmers in the C++ programming language, and determine if modularization ability could be improved by an instructional treatment that concentrated on solving computer programs from previously existing modules. This study attempted to answer the following…

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…
