Cook, Kristin L.; Bush, Sarah B. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018

Complementing the aims of problem-based inquiry, a pedagogical approach called design thinking (DT) has students grapple with issues that require a creative redefinition and reimagining of solutions akin to professional skills of designers, who consider conflicting priorities and complex negotiations to arrive at a solution to an ill-defined…

Pedersen, Jon E. – School Science and Mathematics, 1992

High-school chemistry students (n=96) were studied to compare the effects of two forms of instruction on science achievement and anxiety toward science: (1) cooperative controversy with science, technology, and society issues; and (2) individualized instruction. Analysis of variance indicated significant reduction in anxiety of students instructed…

Francis, Rodney G.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1991

Presents an account of how mathematics and science educators at a Australian university combined to produce a Mathematics/Science Learning Cycle (MS Learning Cycle) to provide a consistent approach to teaching in these two subject areas. Discusses background information, outcomes of using the MS Learning Cycle in teacher preparation and in the…

Ruiz, Elsa Cantu – School Science and Mathematics, 2011

Latinas/os, the largest and fastest growing minority ethnic group in the United States (impels research that focuses on the education of Latinas/os and the need to reduce the achievement gap that persists between Latinas/os and other groups. Such research has gained in popularity; however, it is still very limited. I use my teaching experience…

Barba, Robertta; Cardinale, Loretta – School Science and Mathematics, 1991

The quality and quantity of science classroom interactions in relationship to gender were identified. The observational variables included level of question, type of response, method of attraction, target student gender, teacher gender, and class enrollments. The results suggest that female students have fewer interactions with science teachers…

Lehman, Jeffrey R. – School Science and Mathematics, 1985

Questionnaire responses from 193 high schools indicate that very few science teachers use microcomputers regularly in classrooms. Descriptions of schools/science departments, background information on faculty using microcomputers, and nature/extent of utilization are discussed along with possible causes of limited use and recommendations for…

Dunkelberger, Gary E.; Heikkinen, Henry – School Science and Mathematics, 1984

Investigated was the influence on learner outcomes of the repeatable testing provision of Bloom's mastery learning model for ninth graders in an Introduction to Chemistry and Physics course. Neither student achievement nor attitude toward learning science was favorably influenced by repeatable testing. (MNS)
