Nixon, Ryan S.; Smith, Leigh K.; Wimmer, Jennifer J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
This quasi-experimental study investigated how explicit instruction about multiple modes of representation (MMR) impacted grades 7 (n = 61) and 8 (n = 141) students' learning and multimodal use on end-of-unit assessments. Half of each teacher's (n = 3) students received an intervention consisting of explicit instruction on MMR in science…

Slavit, David; Roth McDuffie, Amy – School Science and Mathematics, 2013
Two related case studies of secondary mathematics teachers examine the roles and conditions helpful in initiating, directing, and/or supporting teachers' own professional development. Using multiple data sources from school-based and professional settings, we applied analytic induction to identify patterns of similarities and differences in…

Judson, Eugene – School Science and Mathematics, 2013
It has long been noted in research literature that there does not exist a shared definition of integration of science and mathematics. Classifying a particular set of integration practices by one of many labels has limited value. Moving past the definition debate, this study describes the development and testing of the Mathematics Integrated into…

Pringle, Rose M.; Brkich, Katie Milton; Adams, Thomasenia Lott; West-Olatunii, Cirecie; Archer-Banks, Diane A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Despite recent progress toward gender equity in science and mathematics education, the underachievement of low-income African American girls remains a challenge when compared with their white counterparts. Furthermore, the causes of this persistent underachievement have not been explored thoroughly. We have initiated a three-year longitudinal…

Hattikudur, Shanta; Prather, Richard W.; Asquith, Pamela; Alibali, Martha W.; Knuth, Eric J.; Nathan, Mitchell – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Middle-school students are expected to understand key components of graphs, such as slope and y-intercept. However, constructing graphs is a skill that has received relatively little research attention. This study examined students' construction of graphs of linear functions, focusing specifically on the relative difficulties of graphing slope and…

Perrin, John Robert – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
This study examined the extent to which seventh- and eighth-grade mathematics teachers are aware of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards documents, Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics and Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and agree with NCTM's vision of school mathematics as expressed in…

Ross, John A.; Scott, Garth; Bruce, Catherine D. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Recent research demonstrates that in many countries gender differences in mathematics achievement have virtually disappeared. Expectancy-value theory and social cognition theory both predict that if gender differences in achievement have declined there should be a similar decline in gender differences in self-beliefs. Extant literature is…

Kasmer, Lisa; Kim, Ok-Kyeong – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
Research has shown that prediction has the potential to promote the teaching and learning of mathematics because it can be used to enhance students' thinking and reasoning at all grade levels in various topics. This article addresses the effectiveness of using prediction on students' understanding and reasoning of mathematical concepts in a middle…

Wang, Jianjun – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
As the largest international study ever taken in history, the Trend in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) has been held as a benchmark to measure U.S. student performance in the global context. In-depth analyses of the TIMSS project are conducted in this study to examine key issues of the comparative investigation: (1) item flaws in mathematics…

Redmond, Adrienne; Thomas, Julie; High, Karen; Scott, Margaret; Jordan, Pat; Dockers, Jean – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
This case study reviewed the collaborative efforts of university engineers, teacher educators, and middle school teachers to advance sixth- and seventh-grade students' learning through a series of project-based engineering activities. This two-year project enriched regular school curricula by introducing real-world applications of science and…

Franz, Dana Pomykal; Thompson, Nicole L.; Fuller, Bob; Hare, R. Dwight; Miller, Nicole C.; Walker, Jacob – School Science and Mathematics, 2010
Looping, a school structure where students remain with one group of teachers for two or more school years, is used by middle schools to meet the diverse needs of young adolescents. However, little research exists on how looping effects the academic performance of students. This study was designed to determine if looping influenced middle school…

Yeh, Yi-Fen Y.; McTigue, Erin M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2009
The purpose of this study was to determine the extent that diagrammatic literacy is necessary for success on standardized science tests at the late-elementary and middle grade levels. Towards this goal, we quantified the frequency, form and function of graphical representations on select state science tests. 985 tests items from 14 states were…

Truxaw, Mary P.; Gorgievski, Nicholas; DeFranco, Thomas C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2008
This article documents the development and use of a survey instrument designed to measure K-8 mathematics teachers' perceptions about discourse in mathematics classes. In particular, the 5-point Likert-type survey sought to address teachers' perceptions of their use of dialogic (dialogue to construct new meaning), univocal (conveying information),…

Ross, John A.; Xu, YunMei; Ford, John – School Science and Mathematics, 2008
Previous research (e.g., Woodward & Baxter, 1997) found that Standards-based mathematics teaching provides marginal or no benefits for low achievers, in contrast with positive effects for middle and high ability students. A randomized quasi-experiment in 52 Canadian schools found that low achieving grade 7 and 8 students who received support…

Liu, Xiufeng – School Science and Mathematics, 2006
Using the US national sample from the 1995 Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), this study examined students' competence levels in understanding the matter concept at grades 3, 4, 7, 8 and high school graduation, and compared them to the expectations in the US national science education standards. It was found that…
