Mehta, Rohit; Mehta, Swati; Seals, Christopher – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
In this chapter, we argue that science education is more than the high stakes, rigorous practices and methodology that students often find dull and uninspiring. We present that aesthetic and humanistic motivations, such as wonder, curiosity, and social justice, are also inherent reasons for doing science. In the MSUrbanSTEM program, we designed an…

Constantine, Angelina; Rózowa, Paula; Szostkowski, Alaina; Ellis, Joshua; Roehrig, Gillian – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
In the age of STEM education, teachers consistently struggle to understand the nature of technology and how to integrate it. This multiple-case study uses the TPACK framework to explore the beliefs and practices of three elementary science and engineering teachers from an urban school district with a recently implemented 1:1 iPad policy. All three…

Navaneedhan, Cittoor Girija; Kamalanabhan, T. J. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2017
Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, research, or simply through auto didacticism, Generally, it occurs through any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts. The…

Levi, Inessa; Chahine, Iman; Garrett, Lauretta; Wang, Haifeng – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
Difficulties in general education mathematics courses may be attributed to many factors, primarily low proficiency in symbol manipulation, a perception that mathematics is an area which eludes mastery, a lack of engagement and effective practice. Educational technology can be a powerful aid in overcoming these factors. This work describes the…

Deshler, Jessica; Fuller, Edgar – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2016
Approximately 30% of students entering West Virginia University (WVU) are not ready for college mathematics. The WVU Department of Mathematics has been tasked with remediating these students and has worked over the last decade to find the most efficient way to teach the Pre-College Algebra Workshop; the prerequisite course students must complete…
