Ahtee, Maija, Ed.; Bjorkqvist, Ole, Ed.; Pehkonen, Erkki, Ed.; Vatanen, Virpi, Ed.
This book contains selected research papers presented at seminars held throughout the year 2000 in Finland by members of the Finnish Association for Research in Mathematics and Science Education (FARMSE) and students at the Finnish Graduate School of Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry Education. This volume also contains papers professor Laurence Viennot, Universite Paris VII, France and professor Georgios Tsaparlis, University of Ioannina, Greece, who gave lectures and workshops at the spring seminar of the Graduate School in Joensuu, Finland, and by professor Erikki Pehkonen, who gave a lecture at the summer seminar in Vaasa, Finland. Papers include: (1) "The Finnish Graduate School of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry Education" (Maija Ahte and Virpi Vatanen); (2) "A Hidden Regulating Factor in Mathematics Classrooms: Mathematics-Related Beliefs" (Erkki Pehkonen); (3) "Primary School Teachers' Mathematics Beliefs, Teaching Practices and Use of Textbooks" (Paivi Perkkila); (4) "Mathematics for Primary School Teachers" (Silja Pesonen); (5) "The Metalevel of Cognition-Emotion Interaction" (Markku S. Hannula); (6) "Problem Solving in Chemistry and Science Education" (Georgios Tsaparlis); (7) "Physics Education Research: Inseparable Contents and Methods--The Part Played by Critical Details" (Laurence Viennot); (8) "The Force Concept Inventory in Diagnosing the Conceptual Understanding of Newtonian Mechanics in Finnish Upper Secondary Schools" (Johanna Jauhiainen, Ismo T. Koponen, and Jari Lavonen); and (9) "An Evaluation of Interactive Teaching Methods in Mechanics: Using the Force Concept Inventory To Monitor Student Learning" (Antti Savinainen).
