Marshall, Anne Marie; Lane, Savannah; Sweet, Savannah; Ruiz, Rachel – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2019
This multiple case study provides a lens into the ways three prospective elementary school teachers (PSTs) engaged in online discussion blogs when exploring the geometric concepts of area and perimeter. The online discussion blog protocol utilized reform-based instruction consistent with social constructivism. Through collaborative discussion 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…

Dove, Anthony; Dove, Emily – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
While studies have shown positive attributes related to flipped learning, especially in mathematics and statistics, there is limited understanding of how taking multiple flipped courses may impact students' learning of mathematics and their perceptions of mathematics. Specifically, this study examined how completing consecutive flipped mathematics…

Chabalengula, Vivien; Fateen, Rasheta; Mumba, Frackson; Ochs, Laura Kathryn – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
This study investigated the effect of an inquiry-based computer simulation modeling (ICoSM) instructional approach on pre-service science teachers' understanding of homeostasis and its related concepts, and their perceived design features of the ICoSM and simulation that enhanced their conceptual understanding of these concepts. Fifty pre-service…

Morais, Adolfo; Barragués, José Ignacio; Guisasola, Jenaro – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
This work describes the design and evaluation of a proposal to use Classroom Response Systems (CRS), intended to promote participative classes of Mathematics at University. The proposal is based on Problem Based Learnig (PBL) and uses Robert's six hypotheses for mathematical teaching-learning. The results show that PBL is a relevant strategy to…

Lee, Young-Jin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2015
The aims of this study are: (1) to develop iPad-based computer simulations called iSimPhysics that can help people learn Newtonian physics concepts; and (2) to assess its educational benefits and pedagogical usefulness. To facilitate learning, iSimPhysics visualizes abstract physics concepts, and allows for conducting a series of computer…

Hodges, Charles; Jones, R. Caroline; Prater, Alyssa – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
The purpose of this paper is to report the results of a two-part study. Study 1 was conducted to refine and validate a survey instrument, SELMA (Hodges, 2008), used to measure learners' self-efficacy toward learning mathematics in online or technology-intensive, asynchronous learning environments. Study 2 was conducted to investigate the…

Pellegrini, Marco – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2014
Phase changes in water are experienced in everyday life but students often struggle to understand mechanisms that regulate them. Human thermal comfort is closely related to humidity, evaporative heat loss and heat transfer. The purpose of the present study is to assist students in the evaluation of human thermal comfort. Such a goal is achievable…

Guerrero, Shannon; Baumgartel, Drew; Zobott, Maren – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013
Screencasting, or digital recordings of computer screen outputs, can be used to promote pedagogical transformation in the mathematics classroom by moving explicit, procedural-based instruction to the online environment, thus freeing classroom time for more student-centered investigations, problem solving, communication, and collaboration. This…

Herron, Sherry; Gandy, Rex; Ye, Ningjun; Syed, Nasser – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
A unique aspect of the implementation of a computer algebra system (CAS) at a comprehensive university in the U.S. allowed us to compare the student success and failure rates to the traditional method of teaching college algebra. Due to space limitations, the university offered sections of both CAS and traditional simultaneously and, upon…

Connelly Stockton, Julianna; Gregory, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2012
A group of six math instructors used tablet PCs to teach their individual sections of a high enrollment gateway Pre-Calculus course in a diverse urban four-year college. Student performance in the experimental sections were compared to those in 31 other sections in terms of student retention, pass rates, and score on the department-wide…

Sinclair, Margaret – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Students in a graduate geometry class used items such as paper, ribbon, plastic spheres, cardboard tubes, and markers to carry out investigations in spherical geometry. The hands-on activities helped students develop a new appreciation of geometry as a study of shape and space; however, the difficulty of subduing wayward elastics and drawing lines…

Cantrell, Pamela; Sudweeks, Richard – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
This project investigated the effects of technology task autonomy, teacher gender, and student gender on student achievement scores for students disaggregated by IEP and SES in middle school science classrooms. Participants were from the treatment group in a larger quasi-experimental design project that investigated the effects of integrated…

Lavicza, Zsolt – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
The use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) is becoming increasingly important and widespread in mathematics research and teaching. In this paper, I will report on a questionnaire study enquiring about mathematicians' use of CAS in mathematics teaching in three countries; the United States, the United Kingdom, and Hungary. Based on the responses…

Peschke, Julie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009
The culture of the young may, in fact, be a harbinger enticing us to follow a pathway from which will emerge the re-conceptualized educational practices of this new century. The culture of those older will, no doubt, strive to maintain the more golden aspects of their now historical learning experiences. One of the tasks of all educators, but…
