de Jesus, V. L. B.; Pérez, C. A. C.; de Oliveira, A. L.; Sasaki, D. G. G. – Physics Education, 2019

Currently, the number of smartphones with an embedded gyroscope sensor has been increasing due games whose performance relies on 3D augmented reality. In general, teaching papers on the gyroscope sensor address very simple spatial configuration, where the fixed rotation axis coincides to the z-axis of the smartphone. This work presents five…

Hoban, Richard A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019

Many students do not have a deep understanding of the integral concept. This article defines what a deep understanding of the integral is in respect to integration involving one independent variable; briefly discusses factors which may inhibit such an understanding; and then describes the design of a mathematical resource for introducing students…

Hofmann, Andreas; Coster, Mark J.; Taylor, Paul – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019

The interactive generation of chemical-structure diagrams is an integral activity in the study of chemistry as well as in professional chemistry environments. For educational purposes in particular, the existence of suitable software tools free of charge is of great importance. Although a number of free chemical-drawing applications are currently…

Schall-Leckrone, Laura – Teacher Education Quarterly, 2018

This qualitative research study examined the extent to which novice and student teachers drew upon pre-service preparation to use scaffolding practices identified in the literature as supportive of bilingual learners' (EBs') acquisition of academic content. Data sources included videotaped class observations, lesson plans and teaching materials,…

Koh, Sam Boon Kiat; Fung, Fun Man – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018

A mobile application game has been adapted to teach students about laboratory instruments, glassware, apparatus, and techniques. The game was designed with reference to a popular icebreaker game, "Charades!", to ensure that it was easily accessible to students. Students will hold a mobile phone just above their forehead, which will then…

Oxman, Victor; Stupel, Moshe; Jahangiri, Jay M. – Cogent Education, 2018

The article is dedicated to solving extrema problems in teaching mathematics, without using calculus. We present and discuss a wide variety of mathematical extrema tasks where the extrema are obtained and find their solutions without resorting to differential. Particular attention is paid to the role of arithmetic and geometric means inequality in…

Borda, Emily; Warren, Shannon; Coskie, Tracy L.; Larson, Bruce E.; Hanley, Dan; Cohen, Jessica – School-University Partnerships, 2018

The Whole School Success Partnership (TWSSP) worked to develop practices and cultures that emphasized student success in five middle and high schools. Because this project took place in secondary schools where teachers have disciplinary specializations, the whole school approach came with unique opportunities and challenges. Here we describe how…

Iborra Urios, Montserrat; Ramírez Rangel, Eliana; Badia Córcoles, Jordi Hug; Bringué Tomàs, Roger; Tejero Salvador, Javier – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2017

This work is focused on the implementation, development, documentation, analysis, and assessment of the flipped classroom methodology, by means of the just-in-time teaching strategy, for a pilot group (1 out of 6) in the subject "Applied Computing" of both the Chemical and Materials Engineering Undergraduate Degrees of the University of…

Akcay, Ahmet Oguz – Journal of Education and Practice, 2017

There are many available technologies that can assist future teachers to deliver instruction. The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief review of literature identifying available technology tools in mathematics education and which technologies are selected by PSTs to design mathematics lesson activities. The most commonly used and available…

de Araujo, Zandra; Otten, Samuel; Birisci, Salih – Educational Technology & Society, 2017

Flipped instruction is becoming more common in the United States, particularly in mathematics classes. One of the defining characteristics of this increasingly popular instructional format is the homework teachers assign. In contrast to traditional mathematics classes in which homework consists of problem sets, homework in flipped classes often…

Apugliese, Andrew; Lewis, Scott E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017

Meta-analysis can provide a robust description of the impact of educational reforms and also offer an opportunity to explore the conditions where such reforms are more or less effective. This article describes a meta-analysis on the impact of cooperative learning on students' chemistry understanding. Modifiers in the meta-analysis are purposefully…

Breda, Adriana; Pino-Fan, Luis Roberto; Font, Vicenç – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017

The objective of this study is to demonstrate that the criteria of didactical suitability, proposed by the theoretical framework known as the Onto-Semiotic Approach (OSA) of mathematical knowledge and instruction, are powerful tools for organizing the reflection and assessment of instruction processes carried out by mathematics teachers. To this…

Almendro Vedia, Víctor G.; Natale, Paolo; Chen, Su; Monroy, Francisco; Rosilio, Veronique; López-Montero, Ivan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017

Since the first report of electroformed micrometer-sized liposomes in the 1980s, giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) have generated a lot of interest in the biophysical and biochemical communities. However, their penetration rate in high school or at the undergraduate level is still limited because of the requirement of specialized materials for…

Cunha, Ricardo F. F.; Tort, A. C. – Physics Education, 2017

Newton's law of universal gravitation underpins our understanding of the dynamics of the Solar System and of a good portion of the observable universe. Generally, in the classroom or in textbooks, the law is presented initially in a qualitative way and at some point during the exposition its mathematical formulation is written on the blackboard…

Richardson, Janessa; Bachman, Rachel M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

This article describes a preservice teacher's imaginative exploration of completing the square through a process of reasoning and sense making. She recounts historical perspectives and her own discoveries in the process of completing the square. Through this process of sense making, she engaged with the content standard of completing the square to…
