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…

Cyril, Nelson; Coll, Richard – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
This paper reports an experimental study on Form Four (16 year olds) students' conceptions about two acid-base models (Arrhenius & Brønsted-Lowry). An intact class was divided into two groups that were taught different acid-base models. One teacher taught one of the groups the Brønsted-Lowry model while another teacher taught the Arrhenius…

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…

Karaçam, Sedat – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
The aim of this study is to examine secondary school students' images and conceptualisations about scientists by contextual data analysis, and to determine relationships between them. The respondents were 356 students attending 6th and 7th grades of secondary school in Duzce. Tests were conducted during 2013-2014 academic year. Students' images…

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…

Buaraphan, Khajornsak – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
Understanding of the Nature of Science (NOS) serves as one of the desirable characteristics of science teachers. The current study attempted to explore 101 Thai in-service science teachers' conceptions of the NOS, particularly scientific knowledge, the scientific method, scientists' work, and scientific enterprise, by using the Myths of Science…

Dahsah, Chanyah; Coll, Richard K.; Sung-ong, Sunan; Yutakom, Naruemon; Sanguanruang, Sudjit – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
The international literature suggests students frequently resort to the use of formulae when solving stoichiometry problems without understanding the concepts. In prior work we identified Thai student alternative conceptions and ability to solve numerical problem for stoichiometry. The results indicate that many Thai students also hold alternative…

Kijkuakul, Sirinapa; Yutakom, Naruemon; Roadrangka, Vantipa – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This study examined a Thai biology teacher's creative tensions when she was challenged to adopt a new teaching approach to photosynthesis with her class. The teacher was purposively selected on her need of professional growth. Data from observations and interviews documented the tensions. The data indicated that the biology teacher experienced…

Salih, Maria – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This paper explored and described the analogical reasoning occurring in the minds of different science achievement groups for the concept of translation in protein synthesis. "What is the process of self-generated analogical reasoning?", "What types of matching was involved?" and "What are the consequences of the matching…

Kong, Ng Wai; Lai, Kong Sow – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
Concept learning in science and mathematics had often times been taught based on assumptions of alternative concepts or even in some instances based on misconceptions. Some educational researchers favour a constructivist approach in teaching science and mathematics. The constructivist literature existing makes use of alternative conceptions as…

Ali, Maznah; Ismail, Zurida – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2005
This article describes the outcome of an exercise carried out with one hundred undergraduate student teachers (preservice teachers) enrolled in a Biology Teaching Methods course, a third year course in a four-year Teacher Education Programme. The students, working in groups of three to four, were assigned to construct a concept map showing their…

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…

Idros, Sharifah Norhaidah Syed – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2004
Science is at heart a rational activity. Reasoning, being an important component of critical thinking has been successfully taught using Socratic methods. As an approach, the instructor or designer of instruction models an inquiring and probing mind focusing on providing questions and not answers. The main aim has been to allow learners to…

Ellis-Hall, Nadine; Soyibo, Kola – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2004
This study sought to find out if (a) the performance of 113 Jamaican 11th-graders on a mole concept test was satisfactory or not; (b) there were significant differences in their performance linked to their chemical and mathematical abilities, gender and socioeconomic background (SEB); and, (c) there were significant relationships among the four…
