Causapin, Mark – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper expands the scope of typical quantitative studies on mathematics self-efficacy by including a short ethnography of the students' daily classroom experiences. It attempts to provide a "thicker description" and a context in which these beliefs could be interpreted. Using both qualitative and quantitative sets of data, it is…

Salih, Maria – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010
Teaching thinking skills to students is often associated with a thinking strategy or a specific thinking technique. The strategy or technique may refer to a series of steps that is systematically drawn up to ensure that the teaching of thinking skills takes place effectively. In the case of Malaysia, a conceptual framework of Thinking Skill…

Tobin, Kenneth – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2007
A tenet that appears to be accepted throughout the world is that effective teachers establish and maintain control over their students. This is an assertion that I challenge and deconstruct. In fact, for many teachers their well-intentioned efforts to establish and maintain control over students lead to their demise as teachers and for many more…

Tan, Kim Chwee Daniel; Taber, Keith S. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
Previous research has shown that students' existing conceptions are critical to subsequent learning because there is interaction between the new knowledge that the students encounter and their existing knowledge from previous lessons. Taber (1999a) found A-level students in the UK had difficulty in understanding the principles determining the…
