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)

Cheung, Y. L. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Discusses the meaning of calculation errors, describing two error types (truncation and roundoff errors). Examples of calculator calculations are given to illustrate the importance of an awareness of significant digits and the effects of errors that may lead user to a mistaken interpretation of calculated results or to faulty conclusions.…

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.…

Tobin, Kenneth; Capie, William – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
To obtain reliable and valid measures of cognitive development in group settings, the Test of Logical Thinking, a paper-and pencil test of formal reasoning ability, was developed. It was administered to high school stuents, and alternate forms were then devised. Applications are discussed. (MNS)

Ibrahim, Akbar bin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Attitudes toward science of 654 pupils aged 14-15 were assessed, and relationships between attitude and locality, achievement, and sex studied. Achievement was mildly correlated with attitude, but locality and sex had no influence. Other findings are also discussed. (MNS)

Wilson, Audrey; Wilson, Michael – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
A group test of formal thinking was administered to all grade 11 entrants in National High Schools in Papua New Guinea, and readministered two years later. Only 8 percent operated formally on the initial test; two years later, 18 percent were operating formally and 37 percent were at a transition stage. (MNS)

Gan, Siowck Lee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
This study sought to obtain insight into the pattern of relationships between students' achievement in science and study behavior variables. Surveyed were 17-year-olds in the science stream of two secondary schools in Kuala Lumpur. Sex differences were found. (MNS)

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)

Sai, Khoo Phon; Inder, Walter R. D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Three different models with continuous materials, discontinuous materials, and number lines were used to study the operation concept in six investigations on multiplication with fractions with pupils aged 11-12 in a Penang International School. All approaches could be understood by pupils, but they preferred the area and fractional models. (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…

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. (Author/JN)

Kow, Khoo Goh – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
The availability of relatively cheap microcomputers has led educators in the southeast Asian region to consider introducing computers and computer assisted instruction (CAI) into schools. Advantages, problems, and prospects of introducing CAI into Malaysian schools are discussed. (Author/JN)

Seng, Lee Chuan – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Discusses reform in mathematics education in Malaysia since the late sixties until early 1982, highlighting important features of the reform and main factors, including educational background and contributions to the shaping of these features. Educational problems/issues likely to influence a forthcoming reform in the wider context of educational…
