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…

Eric, Chan Chun Ming; Vapumarican, Rashidah; Vanessa, Oh Kaiwen; Tracy, Liu Huanjia; Shirley, Seah Yew Hwee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
The solving of structured multi-step word problems has been a dominant practice in schools and is seen as a way to develop students' mathematical reasoning abilities. Unfortunately, it is limited in scope and does not provide opportunities for eliciting deeper reasoning as they are neither rich enough nor anchored in authentic data that resemble…

Kushairi, Norliza – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
This is an action research carried out to challenge my PowerPoint-based traditional way of delivering lecture. Awakened by calls for 21st century classroom models, which, among others, is to embed creativity and innovation as a means for critical thinking skill, a journey to embark on a cloud-based zooming presentation combined with grounded-based…

Samsudin, Mohd Ali; Haniza, Noor Hasyimah; Ismail, Juliah; Abd-Talib, Corrienna – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
This study was undertaken to explore the effects of informal science learning outside the classroom on preschool students' achievement in the Early Science learning topic (plant-related topics that presented concepts about tree leaves, height and roots) using an inquiry method. A sample of 64 preschool students was selected using purposive…

Nasution, Andrea Arifsyah; Lukito, Agung – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
In teaching proportion, the teachers usually give the students a formal formula, such as cross-multiplication, without providing them the meaning of proportionality. Thus, the students just apply it in order to solve proportional problems. However, it does not connote that they understand what proportionality means. In this paper, the authors…

Thien, Lei Mee; Wichaidit, Sittichai; Wichaidit, Patcharee Rompayom – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2015
The purpose of this study is to develop teachers' orientations toward teaching science scale from an instructional perspective in a Thai context. The scale consisted of nine orientations with 54 items. The pilot data were collected from 125 secondary science teachers in Thailand and analysed by using the Rasch rating scale model with WINSTEPS…

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…

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…

Nam, Pham Sy; Stephens, Max – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2014
"Limit" is a difficult mathematical concept, even for good students. It is also a key foundational idea for the study of advanced mathematics. It holds a central position as a foundation of the theory of approximation, of continuity, and of differential and integral calculus. However, the difficulty for teachers is how to organise…

Chow, Tuck-Choy F.; Treagust, David F. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2013
The study involved evaluating the efficacy of a conceptual change instructional programme involving cognitive conflict in (1) facilitating form 2 (grade 8) students' understanding of algebra concepts, and (2) assessing changes in students' attitudes towards learning mathematics, in a mixed quantitative-qualitative research design. The…

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…

Cheng, Lu Pien – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2013
In this paper the teachers' learning journey on designing a mathematics problem that involves a real-life context is reported. This is part of a larger project undertaken in a primary school in Singapore where the teachers were engaged in planning, observing and critiquing mathematics lessons to investigate teaching and learning. These unique…

Kissane, Barry; Kemp, Marian – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Technology has become a major force in developing curricula and educational practice in mathematics education internationally. While many technologies are important in affluent developed countries, the hand-held calculator continues to be the technology most likely to be available to students when and where they need it. Modern calculators have…

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…
