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…

Irving, Karen – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This study focuses on how preservice science teachers integrated educational technology into secondary science instruction during student teaching. Data includes interviews, classroom observations, lesson plans and artifacts, and surveys. The results revealed that preservice science teacher participants had the capacity, intent and opportunity to…

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…

Bringslid, Odd – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

The projects Xmath (Bringslid and Canessa, 2002) and dMath (Bringslid, de la Villa and Rodriguez, 2007) were supported by the European Commission in the so called Minerva Action (Xmath) and The Leonardo da Vinci programme (dMath). The Xmath eBook (Bringslid, 2006) includes algorithms into a wide range of undergraduate mathematical issues embedded…

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…

Heck, Andre; Kedzierska, Ewa; Ellermeijer, Ton – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

In this paper we report on the sustained research and development work at the AMSTEL Institute of the University of Amsterdam to improve mathematics and science education at primary and secondary school level, which has lead amongst other things to the development of the integrated computer working environment Coach 6. This environment consists of…

Wigmore, Angela; Hunter, Gordon; Pflugel, Eckhard; Denholm-Price, James; Binelli, Vincent – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

Speech technology--especially automatic speech recognition--has now advanced to a level where it can be of great benefit both to able-bodied people and those with various disabilities. In this paper we describe an application "TalkMaths" which, using the output from a commonly-used conventional automatic speech recognition system,…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This paper was prepared in response to the Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences recommendations for the preparation of secondary teachers. It shows how using trigonometry as a conceptual tool in spreadsheet-based applications enables one to develop mathematical understanding in the context of constructing geometric representations of unit…

Abramovich, Sergei; Brouwer, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

This paper was developed with the goal of enhancing the mathematical preparation of secondary school teachers in the technological paradigm. It shows how two-variable inequalities can be utilized as models for the construction of geometric objects using the software Graphing Calculator 3.5 (produced by Pacific Tech) as a relation grapher. An…
