Scheuch, Martin; Panhuber, Tanja; Winter, Silvia; Kelemen-Finan, Julia; Bardy-Durchhalter, Manfred; Kapelari, Suzanne – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Citizen science is a rapidly growing emerging field in science and it is gaining importance in education. Therefore, this study was conducted to document the pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of biology teachers who participated in a citizen science project involving observation of wild bees and identification of butterflies. In this paper,…

Wickstrom, Megan H. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
This article is a report on a teacher study group that focused on three elementary teachers' perceptions of mathematical modeling in contrast to typical mathematics instruction. Through the theoretical lens of figured worlds, I discuss how mathematics instruction was conceptualized across the classrooms in terms of artifacts, discourse, and…

Turner, Erin Elizabeth; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Sugimoto, Amanda Tori; Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon; Witters, Angela; Aguirre, Julia; Bartell, Tonya; Drake, Corey; Foote, Mary Q. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
There has been limited attention to early career teachers' (ECTs) understandings and practices related to language in teaching and learning mathematics. In this qualitative case study, we drew upon frameworks for teacher noticing to study the language practices of six early career elementary and middle school mathematics teachers. We describe…

Sormunen, Kari; Köksal, Mustafa Serdar – European Journal of Educational Research, 2014
Majority of NOS studies comprise of determination or assessment studies conducted with ordinary students. In order to gain further understanding on variation in NOS understandings among the students, there should be different research attempts focusing on unconventional students such as academically advanced students. The purpose of this study is…

Ingram, Naomi – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
In this paper, the mathematical engagement of Colin and Robyn is compared. Through this comparison, and informed by longitudinal research into the mathematical journeys of a group of students in New Zealand, a set of engagement skills emerged. Both students had high levels of engagement in mathematics. However, Colin was a thriving mathematics…
