Edelen, Daniel; Bush, Sarah B.; Simpson, Heather; Cook, Kristin L.; Abassian, Aline – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
The mathematics education community has routinely called for mathematics tasks to be connected to the real world. However, accomplishing this in ways that are relevant to students' lived experiences can be challenging. Meanwhile, mathematical modeling has gained traction as a way for students to learn mathematics through real-world connections. In…

Hutchins, Nicole M.; Biswas, Gautam; Maróti, Miklós; Lédeczi, Ákos; Grover, Shuchi; Wolf, Rachel; Blair, Kristen Pilner; Chin, Doris; Conlin, Luke; Basu, Satabdi; McElhaney, Kevin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
Synergistic learning combining computational thinking (CT) and STEM has proven to be an effective method for advancing learning and understanding in a number of STEM domains and simultaneously helping students develop important CT concepts and practices. We adopt a design-based approach to develop, evaluate, and refine our Collaborative,…

Pierson, Ashlyn E.; Brady, Corey E.; Clark, Douglas B. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2020
This paper describes the work done by sixth grade students to achieve and sustain productive and personally meaningful lines of inquiry with computational models. The capacity to frame interactions with tools as dialogic exchanges with co-participants is a productive practice for disciplinary engagement in science and for computational thinking…

Kenney, Rachael; An, Tuyin; Kim, Sung-Hee; Uhan, Nelson A.; Yi, Ji Soo; Shamsul, Aiman – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In linear programming, many students find it difficult to translate a verbal description of a problem into a valid mathematical model. To better understand this, we examine the existing characteristics of college engineering students' errors across linear programming (LP) problems. We examined textbooks to identify the types of problems typically…

Gabalán-Coello, Jesús; Vásquez-Rizo, Fredy-Eduardo – Journal of Latinos and Education, 2020
This article presents a proposal to analyze student perceptions, through a mathematical model, using a previously designed and validated questionnaire. This approach attempts to describe and explain the different positions and interpretations which inhabit students regarding the notion of professorial quality. For this, a question that sums up the…

Nikula, Johannah; DePiper, Jill Neumayer; Driscoll, Mark – Educational Leadership, 2020
Three mathematics education researchers discuss their findings on the use of diagrams in math instruction for English language learners. The authors show how diagrams can help students who are English learners better develop mathematical thinking and communicate their mathematical understanding.

Moss, Diana L.; Boyce, Steven; Lamberg, Teruni – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
This study explored how students develop meaning of functions by building on their understanding of expressions and equations. A teaching experiment using design research was conducted in a sixth-grade classroom. The data was analyzed using a grounded theory approach to provide explanations about why events occurred within this teaching episode…

Raj, Gaurav; Mahajan, Manish; Singh, Dheerendra – International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies, 2020
In secure web application development, the role of web services will not continue if it is not trustworthy. Retaining customers with applications is one of the major challenges if the services are not reliable and trustworthy. This article proposes a trust evaluation and decision model where the authors have defined indirect attribute, trust,…

Gu, Jerry; Andreopoulos, Stavroula; Jenkinson, Jodie; Ng, Derek P. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Enzyme kinetics is the study of enzymatic catalytic rates in biochemical reactions. This topic is commonly taught to life science students in introductory biochemistry courses during their undergraduate education. Unlike most other biochemistry topics, which focus on visual structures of biomolecules and their processes, enzyme kinetics is…

Pasachoff, Jay M.; Mativi, Jason W. – Physics Teacher, 2020
To span the great distance from the solar system to the farthest clusters of galaxies in the universe, astronomers break down the distance indicators into steps. The nearest ones are measured geometrically, with what is known as parallax. Among the objects whose distances are thus directly measured are a rare type of star known as a Cepheid…

Fomunyam, Kehdinga George, Ed. – IntechOpen, 2020
Theorising STEM Education in the 21st Century is a book that captures the essence of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and the intricacies of STEM education in the contemporary society. It explores STEM as an interdisciplinary field as well as the individual disciplines that make up STEM. This ensures the field of STEM as a whole is…

Atkin, Keith – Physics Education, 2020
This paper demonstrates how the transcendental number "e" may be arrived at by observing the discharge of a capacitor through a fixed resistor and then modelling the system using a simple step-wise procedure. The experimental phase makes use of the Arduino microcontroller, while simple modelling of the system is carried out by means of…

Abassian, Aline; Safi, Farshid; Bush, Sarah; Bostic, Jonathan – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2020
This article presents a review of literature exploring five different perspectives on mathematical modeling in mathematics education. Because there is not a single agreed-on definition of what mathematical modeling is or how it should be done, a focused and extensive review of mathematical modeling is essential. The five broad classifications…

Kilty, Joel M.; McAllister, Alex M. – PRIMUS, 2020
In our modern world, we are inundated and grapple with data daily. As mathematicians, we are often more comfortable discussing the behavior of functions presented analytically, in contrast with the data-driven or tabular presentations of functions ubiquitous in our culture. This paper introduces an entry-level course, Mathematical Modeling and…
