Sanscartier, Matthew D. – Journal of Mixed Methods Research, 2020
Acknowledging and navigating "mess" are clear priorities in the mixed methods literature. Mess enters the mixed methods process in two interrelated ways. The first is empirically, where quantitative and qualitative findings diverge or contrast rather than cohere; the second is through design, where research contexts demand unplanned…

Wolfson, Jane; Stapleton, Mary; Sezen-Barrie, Asli – Science Teacher, 2020
Ocean acidification (OA) has been called climate change's evil twin for a reason. Increased levels of carbon dioxide, caused by humans burning fossil fuels, are not only causing a rise in global temperature but are also having adverse impacts on marine ecosystems. In the lesson presented in this article, students conduct investigations using…

Hanson, Benjamin S.; Brown, Christa P.; Laurent, Harrison; Hughes, Matt D. G.; Dougan, Lorna – Physics Education, 2020
Hierarchical structure and mechanics are crucial in biological systems as they allow for smaller molecules, such as proteins and sugars, to be used in the construction of large scale biological structures exhibiting properties such as structural support functionality. By exploring the fundamental principles of structure and mechanics at the…

Larouche, Olivier; Jolicoeur, Ludovic; Calosi, Piero – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Changes in environmental conditions can have a profound impact on organismal processes. For aquatic organisms, changes in dissolved oxygen concentration can have major repercussions, notably for physiological processes that have high long-term energetic costs and are more likely to rely on aerobic metabolic pathways. Here we propose a simple…

Simpson, Amber; Burris, Alexandra; Maltese, Adam – Research in Science Education, 2020
Making and tinkering is currently gaining traction as an interdisciplinary approach to education. However, little is known about how these activities and explorations in formal and informal learning spaces address the content and skills common to professionals across science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. As such, the purpose of this…
