Serow, Penelope; Sullivan, Terence; Taylor, Neil – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2017
Teacher-made teaching and learning resources are an effective way to facilitate relevant and appropriate curriculum content, values and attitudes for students. This is particularly significant when the context is rather unique, as was the case in the remote developing Pacific Island Country of Nauru. Such resources can be deployed in accompaniment…

Wichaidit, Patcharee Rompayom; Wichaidit, Sittichai – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
Learning chemistry may be difficult for students for several reasons, such as the abstract nature of many chemistry concepts and the fact that students may view chemistry as irrelevant to their everyday lives. Teaching chemistry in familiar contexts and the use of multiple representations are seen as effective approaches for enhancing students'…

Hiong, Sim Joong; Daniel, Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
Perceiving (such as seeing) and representing (such as drawing and talking about what one perceives) is fundamental to chemical education. The purpose of this study was to gain further insights and understanding into selected students' representational competence in chemistry through student-generated representations (SGR). In the mixed model…

Pitiporntapin, Sasithep; Sadler, Troy D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
This study aims to examine the perceptions and practices of socioscientific issue- (SSI) based teaching of 37 pre-service science teachers (PSTs) studying for a master's degree in science education as well as the factors affecting their SSI-based teaching during their field experience in the first semester of the academic year 2014. Data were…

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…

Hudson, Peter – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
Preservice teachers articulate the need for more teaching experiences for developing their practices, however, extending beyond existing school arrangements may present difficulties. Thus, it is important to understand preservice teachers' development of pedagogical knowledge practices when in the university setting. This mixed-method study…

Sim, Joong Hiong; Daniel, Esther Gnanamalar Sarojini – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
Developing representational competence early in chemistry education is important. However, research to uncover students' difficulties with representational competence of basic chemical concepts in the early years of their chemistry course is scarce. The purpose of this study was to investigate and identify these difficulties. A total of 384…

Zain, Sharifuddin Md; Rahman, Noorsaadah Abdul; Chin, Lee Sui – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2013
Students in 12 secondary schools in three states of Malaysia were taught to use worksheets on the chemical kinetics topic which had been pre-created using the MS Excel worksheets. After the teaching, an opinion survey of 612 Form Six students from these schools was conducted. The results showed that almost all the students felt that MS Excel…

Mee, Lee Shok; Oyao, Sheila Gamut – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2013
The fundamental philosophy embedded in lesson study is the collaborative practice of teachers working together to plan, teach, observe, reflect and refine lessons. It has been well established that collaboration strengthens teacher collegial relationships and enhances pedagogical content knowledge. While teacher collaboration seems to be a norm in…

Ong, Eng-Tek; Ruthven, Kenneth – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
This paper reports the relative effectiveness of Smart and Mainstream schooling in terms of student achievement in science. The participants comprised 770 secondary school Form 3 (15-year-old) students from two Smart Schools and two Mainstream Schools in Malaysia. Using students' Standardised National Examination (SNE) primary-school science…

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…
