Armoni, Michal – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2013

Abstraction is a key concept in CS, one of the most fundamental ideas underlying CS and its practice. However, teaching this soft concept to novices is a very difficult task, as discussed by many CSE experts. This paper discusses this issue, and suggests a general framework for teaching abstraction in CS to novices, a framework that would fit into…

Urban-Woldron, Hildegard – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2009

Appropriate educational technologies have the potential to make physics' concepts more accessible through visualization, modeling and multiple representations. Students are engaged in more powerful scientific activities and they are able to perform investigations that would not be possible without the use of technology. This paper presents…

Aegerter-Wilmsen, Tinri; Kettenis, Dik; Sessink, Olivier; Hartog, Rob; Bisseling, Ton; Janssen, Fred – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006

Computer simulations can facilitate the building of models of natural phenomena in research, such as in the molecular life sciences. In order to introduce molecular life science students to the use of computer simulations for model building, a digital case was developed in which students build a model of a pattern formation process in…

Combs, Leon L. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2004

Although education has been in the web era for some years, choosing a direction for educational institutions in this era has been a difficult problem. This article will attempt to give some direction to the institutions and individual faculty members who are uncertain how to proceed. There should be little doubt among educators that the Web offers…
