Seals, Christopher; Mehta, Swati; Wolf, Leigh Graves; Marcotte, Candace – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
U.S. teachers have less time to plan, collaborate, and research related work in comparison to teachers in competing countries (NECTL) and time is needed for teachers to learn new skills, understand new concepts, and to integrate new ideas into their practice (Corcoran, 1995). The MSUrbanSTEM Teaching and Leadership Fellowship program is a…

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…

Kuhn, G. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) was tasked with identifying the key science concepts for science literacy in K-12 students in America (AAAS, 1990, 1993). The AAAS Atlas of Science Literacy (2001) has organized roughly half of these science concepts or benchmarks into fifty flow charts. Each flow chart or strand map…

Stewart, William J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984
Describes a system in which the computer, by interacting with an information bank, produces an individual or group diagnostic profile specifying the nature of the factors that contribute to mathematics difficulties and student variability. The computer also generates suggestions for remediating the learning difficulties and accommodating student…

Luehrmann, Arthur – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1982
This analysis suggests that the present low level of use of technology in education results from fundamental incompatibilities between the educational system in the United States and most of the technology systems intended to perform educational functions. Economics alone will not bring an educational productivity revolution. (MP)
