Belland, Brian R.; Weiss, D. Mark; Kim, Nam Ju; Piland, Jacob; Gu, Jiangyue – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
In this study, we investigated how high school credit recovery students worked in small groups and used computer-based scaffolds to conduct scientific inquiry in a problem-based learning unit centered on water quality. We examined how students searched for and evaluated information from different sources, and used evidence to support their claims.…

Jin, Hui; Shin, Hyo Jeong; Hokayem, Hayat; Qureshi, Farah; Jenkins, Thomas – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This study describes how we developed a learning progression (LP) for systems thinking in ecosystems and collected preliminary validity evidence for the LP. In particular, the LP focuses on how middle and high school students use discipline-specific systems thinking concepts (e.g. feedback loops and energy pyramid) to analyze and explain the…

Rollinde, E. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The Human Orrery is a representation of the Solar System at a human scale, on which positions of planets over time are symbolized by different discs. Learners can then walk along the orbits of the planets with the right pace. This pedagogical tool uses the principles of enacted cognition to promote a better understanding of the scientific laws of…

Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Lesseig, Kristin; Firestone, Jonah; Morrison, Judy; Slavit, David; Holmlund, Tamara – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the increasing number of inclusive STEM schools, little is known about the cultural dimensions that influence STEM curriculum and instruction within these schools. This paper describes research conducted at three inclusive STEM schools, one each at the elementary, middle, and high school level. We explored similarities and differences in…

Martínez-Sierra, Gustavo; Arellano-García, Yurdia; Hernández-Moreno, Antonia; Nava-Guzmán, Cristian – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite the importance of emotions in the professional life of teachers, there is not much research on daily emotions of mathematics teachers beyond general research on mathematics anxiety of mathematics teachers and pre-service teachers in elementary school. Using the theory of cognitive structure of emotions, this qualitative case study research…

Brown, Rachael Eriksen; Bogiages, Christopher A. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers often struggle to utilize reform-based teaching strategies in their first few years of teaching for many reasons (Ball, Thames & Phelps, Journal of Teacher Education 59, 389-407, 2008; Berlin & White, "International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education" 8, 97-115, 2010; Frykholm & Glasson, "School…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Schultz, Madeleine; Wright, Anthony H. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The successful transition from high school to tertiary chemistry studies relies on a student's ability to transfer prior understanding since many topics are extended during first year general chemistry. It was therefore of interest to investigate the perspectives of high school and tertiary teachers regarding which topics and concepts they…
