Stevens, Tara; To, Yen; Harris, Gary; Dwyer, Jerry – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2008
The LOGO Project, funded by the Texas Education Agency, is designed to not only increase participants' knowledge of technology to teach mathematics but to enhance their self-efficacy and self-determination, or the beliefs that individuals have about their ability to succeed and their motivation for involvement in the task, as well. The purpose of…

Kaya, Sibel; Lundeen, Cynthia – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2010
Parents are generally less involved in their children's science education (as compared to reading and mathematics) due to low self-efficacy and a lack of home-school communication. This study examined parental interest and attitudes in science as well as the nature of parent-to-child questioning during an interactive home, school, and community…

Burton, Lauren – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
When teaching algebra concepts to middle school students, the author often hears questions that echo her own past confusion as a young student learning to write linear equations using data tables that show only input and output values. Students, expected to synthesize the relationship between these values in symbolic representation, grow…

Hackett, Gail; Betz, Nancy E. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989
This study investigated the relationship between mathematical performance and mathematics self-efficacy, attitudes toward mathematics, and the choice of mathematics-related majors by college women and men. Performance and self-efficacy correlate positively with attitudes, masculine sex-role orientation, and a mathematics-related major. (Author/DC)

Ramdass, Darshanand; Zimmerman, Barry J. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2008
Teachers need to monitor students' self-efficacy judgments, as well as their mathematics learning, to provide optimal instruction. First, inaccuracies in self-judgments appear to be a major liability for elementary and middle school children. Classroom practice must cultivate the knowledge to succeed and should nurture the belief that one can…

McDonnough, Jacqueline T.; Matkins, Juanita Jo – School Science and Mathematics, 2010
Though the importance of including practicum experiences in programs for the preparation of elementary preservice teachers is generally accepted, the nature of these experiences on the development of skills in teaching science can vary greatly. This study compares the effect of variations in field experiences at two institutions, one which…

Phelps, Christine M. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2010
The purpose of this study was to examine the sources that pre-service teachers (PSTs) use when they construct their self-efficacy beliefs and learning goals, which compose their motivational profiles. Pre-service elementary teachers (n = 22) with different motivational profiles participated in narrative interviews designed to examine…

Jenkins, Kate – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2010
Most teachers feel confident espousing the benefits of using picture books in English lessons, talking about the importance of using the illustrations to enhance the text, engaging students and fostering a love and appreciation of literature. How many teachers passionately advocate the use of these same picture books in mathematics lessons? This…

Marshall, Jeff C.; Horton, Robert; Igo, Brent L.; Switzer, Deborah M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
A survey instrument was developed and administered to 1,222 K-12 mathematics and science teachers to measure their beliefs about and use of inquiry in the classroom. Four variables (grade level taught, content area taught, level of support received, and self-efficacy for teaching inquiry) were significantly correlated to two dependent variables,…
