Gustafson, Brenda; Mahaffy, Peter; Martin, Brian – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
This article reports a subset of findings from a larger study centered on designing a series of six digital learning objects to help Grade 5 (age 10-12) students begin to consider the nature of models (understood as the physical or mental representation of objects, phenomena, or processes), the particle nature of matter, and the behavior of…

Ozgun-Koca, S. Asli; Edwards, Thomas – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
Manipulatives have been used in many mathematics classrooms across many age groups with the aim of helping students to understand abstract concepts through concrete, kinesthetic, and visual experiences. In this paper, after we provide a background for the use of physical and virtual manipulatives in teaching and learning of mathematics, we will…

Tacoma, Sietske; Drijvers, Paul; Boon, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
Dutch universities complain that freshmen in studies such as chemistry, physics, economics and mathematics do not master the required algebraic skills. In the worldwide discussions on mathematics education, mastery of algebra is also a prevalent issue. Often a distinction is made between basis procedures and algebraic reasoning, so-called symbol…

Kay, Robin – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
This study examines the impact of Web-Based Learning Tools (WBLTs), also known as learning objects, in middle school mathematics and science classrooms. Survey, qualitative, and student performance data were collected from a sample of 18 teachers and 443 students. Teachers were very positive about the learning benefits, quality of WBLTs, and…

Lyublinskaya, Irina; Tournaki, Nelly – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
This study compares the respective achievement of students in an integrated algebra course taught with two different types of handhelds over a period of one year. The experimental group was taught with TI-Nspire[TM] handhelds and was compared to the control group taught with TI-84 Plus graphing calculators. The teachers of each group received…

Wang, Yang; O'Dwyer, Laura – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
Using data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2003 and 2007 administrations, this study examines international trends in technology use and explores the international patterns in how teacher-directed, student-use of technology is related to eighth grade mathematics achievement. Descriptive patterns in…

MacArthur, James; Jones, Loretta; Suits, Jerry – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
In this interpretivist case study, four professors who have effectively used clickers to teach chemistry at a large university in a western state were observed and interviewed. Seventeen 50-minute class periods were observed and four 40-50 minute interviews were conducted. Having an institutional culture that promotes the use of clickers and…

Mitchell, Rebecca – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2011
This paper reports on findings from a five-teacher, exploratory case study, critically observing their implementation of a technology-intensive, augmented reality (AR) mathematics curriculum unit, along with its paper-based control. The unit itself was intended to promote multiple proportional-reasoning strategies with urban, public, middle school…

Lenz, Laurie – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Web-based homework (WBH) systems are being utilized in many college mathematics classrooms. Do these systems have an effect on student outcomes when compared to traditional paper-and-pencil homework (PPH)? This study compares student outcomes in multiple sections of a required mathematics course. The sections differed only in the homework delivery…

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…
