Hudson, Peter; Matthews, Kelly – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas in university settings; however this may be the result of attitude rather than aptitude. There is widespread agreement that quantitative problem-solving is essential for graduate competence and preparedness in science and other STEM subjects. The research…

Groves, Susie – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
It has long been recognised that successful mathematical learning comprises much more than just knowledge of skills and procedures. For example, Skemp (1976) identified the advantages of teaching mathematics for what he referred to as "relational" rather than "instrumental" understanding. More recently, Kilpatrick, Swafford and…

Pierce, Robyn; Stacey, Kaye – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011
In this paper we demonstrate that "lesson study" may be adapted from its primary use as a professional development strategy for use as a research strategy, especially to identify principles of good lesson design. We report on a project undertaken in two Australian secondary schools where lesson study research was used to investigate the…

Stephens, Max – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2011
For those who are committed to Lesson Study as a means of developing teacher capacity and bringing about innovation of mathematics teaching and learning, there is value in looking at related strategies, now widely in use in several countries, which aim to achieve similar goals. In this paper, three related strategies will be examined alongside…

White, Allan Leslie – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2010
Newman (1977, 1983) defined five specific literacy and numeracy skills as crucial to performance on mathematical word problems: reading, comprehension, transformation, process skills, and encoding. Newman's Error Analysis (NEA) provided a framework for considering the reasons that underlay the difficulties students experienced with mathematical…

Laidlaw, Kristy-Rebecca; Taylor, Neil; Fletcher, Peter – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
The teaching of science has long been viewed as problematic within primary classrooms across Australia. This study explores the teaching of primary science in an area of rural and regional Australia (the New England Region of New South Wales) where small populations, remote settings and isolation can make the teaching of science and other Key…

Clarkson, Philip C. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
Multilingual classrooms are the normal learning contexts for most children throughout the world. However not all such contexts are identical. This distinction is not always made in the literature. In this paper the multilingual context for classrooms in many urban classrooms in Australia is described before exploring a possible model that might be…

Tytler, Russell – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2007
There is ample evidence that in many countries school science is in difficulty, with declining student attitudes and uptake of science. This presentation argues that a key to addressing the problem lies in transforming teachers' classroom practice, and that pedagogical innovation is best supported within a school context. Evidence for effective…

White, Allan – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2007
This paper examines the similarities and differences between two successful programmes of teacher professional learning. Firstly, Lesson Study developed in Japan over 40 years ago. It examines practice either through direct observation or through classroom artefacts and case studies. It assumes that teacher learning will be more meaningful and…

Gregson, Robyn; Aubusson, Peter – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
In recent times there has been much debate about the literacy levels of students in our schools. Federal and State Governments have provided extensive resources to improve the literacy standards of our tertiary, primary and secondary students. As part of this emphasis on literacy the role that writing plays in student learning has been…

Hunting, Robert P. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Twenty-nine students in grades four, six, and eight were asked to find solutions to fraction equivalence problems and to verify their solutions using discrete material. Discontinuities were observed between strategies students used for producing solutions and supporting knowledge grounded in physical reality. (Author/MNS)

Fisher, Darrell L.; Fraser, Barry J. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Relationships between student affective and cognitive learning outcomes and their perceptions of classroom environment (using Classroom Environment Scale) were investigated for 1,083 Australian (Tasmania) students in 116 grade 8 and 9 classrooms. Results suggest that emphasizing classroom order and organization is likely to have positive influence…

O'Loughlin, Michael J. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Advocates inclusion of science, technology, and society (STS) approach in the science curriculum, focusing on curriculum development. Offers examples of using solar energy as an integrating theme for science, technology, and society topics and explains several energy curricular materials. (ML)

Hill, Douglas M.; Redden, Michael G. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Describes science and mathematics projects in Thailand and Australia that emphasize material, teacher, and curriculum development. Three separate models are diagramatically explained. Suggested approaches for instructional improvement are discussed. Rating and analysis in terms of teacher and specialist inputs and cost factors are also presented.…

Wilson, Audrey – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1992
Reports a study to compare the performance of Australian university students on chemistry questions delivered in two different formats: multiple choice and grid. Concluded that students encounter more difficulties with questions presented in the grid format and that grid questions demand a deeper understanding of the topic. (MDH)
