Yeoh, Miranda P. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2017
Science is for all students in all countries; and this is a principle of equity. An explicit aim of science education is to create a high level of scientific literacy so that students have a greater understanding of science content knowledge that is associated with life, the physical world and earth sciences. As 21st century citizens, it is…

Montebon, Darryl Roy T. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
The content knowledge of teachers matters in the classroom. It influences their ability to deliver lessons, select activities for their students and assess students' learning. This study investigates the experiences of biology pre-service teachers who were required to teach physics and earth science concepts during their pre-service teaching. Such…

Inder, W. R. D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Mathematics is a language -- a way of describing, recording in mathematical sentences, and interpreting the symbols used to denote relationships. It is also an activity involving a way of thinking and a means of using relationships to solve problems. Opportunities must be provided for these activities in mathematics teaching. (Author/JN)

Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Instructions (with diagrams and parts list) are provided for constructing an eye model with a pliable lens made from a plastic bottle which can vary its convexity to accommodate changing positions of an object being viewed. Also discusses concepts which the model can assist in developing. (Author/SK)

Collis, Kevin F. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Describes three procedures (with sample items) developed to measure conceptual growth in children: (1) a short answer type achievement paper test; (2) stimulus cards; and (3) card sorting task. Tests were designed to enable investigators to observe, record, and quantify student's thinking without disrupting or distorting it. (DS)

Acuna, Jasmin E. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Describes two studies conducted with selected groups of elementary and secondary science teachers, which established levels of cognitive functioning, cognitive style, nonverbal intelligence, verbal ability and abstract reasoning. Constructs models of the relationship between variables from intercorrelations and partial correlations among tests.…

Yodintra, Smai – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1980
Discussed are the problems of teaching and learning fractions in the upper primary and lower secondary schools. Recommendations for teaching fractions are made and defects in various methods of fraction instruction are identified. It is suggested that fractions not be taught in upper primary and lower secondary schools. (Author/DS)

Acuna, Jasmin Espiritu – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Discusses three aspects of Philippine culture that affect teaching and learning: (1) social structure; (2) language; and (3) values. Findings from cognitive growth research with Filipino children and adolescents are examined to identify ways of overcoming some sources of difficulties in these areas. (Author/JN)

Semilla-Dube, Lilia – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
A model is being developed to categorize problems in teaching and learning mathematics. Categories include problems due to language difficulties, lack of prerequisite knowledge, and those related to the affective domain. This paper calls on individuals to share teaching and learning episodes; those submitted will then be compiled and categorized.…

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)

Adey, Philip S. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Reviews major purposes and conclusions, and criticisms of cross cultural Piagetian studies conducted during the last two decades. The particular interest of science educators in the work is discussed in light of the availability of new instruments for assessing levels of cognitive development and for analyzing science curricula.
