Michels, Kristin K.; Michels, Zachary D.; Hotchkiss, Sara C. – Natural Sciences Education, 2016
Although spatial reasoning and penetrative thinking skills are essential for many disciplines, these concepts are difficult for students to comprehend. In microscopy, traditional educational materials (i.e., photographs) are static. Conversely, video-based training methods convey dimensionality. We implemented a real-time digital video imaging…

Lee, Hyung Sook; Yim, Jaehoon; Coomes, Jacqueline – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
Children see and describe patterns in the primary grades when they develop the meaning of numbers by composing and decomposing. During their early years, they use patterns to learn properties of operations (Common Core Standards Writing Team 2011). While describing the intent of the third-grade standards for multiplication, the CCSS writers…

Johnson-Glauch, Nicole; Choi, Dong San; Herman, Geoffrey – Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Background: Engineering students commonly learn domain knowledge by engaging with visual representations of it. However, at times they have trouble accessing information from these representations due to the way information is encoded in features of the representation. Purpose: To describe how students engage with representation features, we…

Körhasan, Nilüfer Didis; Gürel, Derya Kaltakçi – Science Education International, 2019
Experience and intuition may help explain everyday phenomena. However, physics concepts cannot be induced directly from them. Learning physics requires an examination of the ideas of scientifically constructed theoretical frameworks, explaining coherently organized physics concepts. This research examined student teachers' physics knowledge in…

Yee, Sean P.; Roy, George J.; Graul, LuAnn – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2020
As mathematical patterns become more complex, students' conditional reasoning skills need to be nurtured so that students continue to critique, construct, and persevere in making sense of these complexities. This article describes a mathematical task designed around the online version of the game Mastermind to safely foster conditional reasoning.

Peixoto, Maria Joelma; Duarte, Paulo A. S.; Araújo, Pedro T.; Pinto, Pedro I. C.; Sarmento, Wellington W. F.; Trinta, Fernando A. M.; Viana, Windson – Informatics in Education, 2020
Mark Weiser coined the term Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) describing a future in which everyday life-objects would have embedded computers providing services anytime and anywhere. This paradigm is theme recurrent in many graduate courses of Computer Science around the world. To better understand the challenge of teaching Ubiquitous Computing…

Nakano, Masayoshi; Ogasawara, Haruka; Wada, Takeshi; Koga, Nobuyoshi – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
This paper reports on a learning program designed for high school chemistry classes that involves laboratory exercises using household oxygen bleaches. In this program, students are taught the chemistry of oxygen bleaches through a stepwise inquiry using laboratory exercises organized with different pedagogical intents. Through comparative…

Wiles, Peter; Lemon, Travis; King, Alessandra – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
Middle school students are faced with a number of mathematical concepts that require new forms of reasoning. Although the shifts toward proportional and algebraic reasoning are often emphasized in middle school curricula, changes in the nature of geometric reasoning are not always given the same weight. As highlighted in "Catalyzing Change in…

Benjamin, Thomas E.; Marks, Bryant; Demetrikopoulos, Melissa K.; Rose, Jordan; Pollard, Ethen; Thomas, Alicia; Muldrow, Lycurgus L. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Although a major goal of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is to develop scientific literacy, prior efforts at measuring scientific literacy have not attempted to link scientific literacy with success in STEM fields. The current Scientific Literacy Survey for College Preparedness in STEM (SLSCP-STEM) scale was…

Kikas, Eve; Mädamürk, Kaja; Palu, Anu – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
Background: Math is a difficult subject with which many upper middle-school students struggle. In addition to knowledge, skills, and motivation, effective learning strategies play an important role in learning math. Aims: This study aimed to examine the effects of comprehension-oriented learning strategies (perceptual and abstract grouping of…

Doyle, Kathleen M.; Dias, Olen; Kennis, James R.; Czarnocha, Bronislaw; Baker, William – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2016
One of the many roles of two year community colleges in the United States is to bridge the gap between secondary school and college for students who graduate from high school with weak mathematics skills that prevent them from enrolling in college level mathematics courses. At community colleges remedial or developmental mathematics courses review…

Sadler, Troy D.; Foulk, Jaimie A.; Friedrichsen, Patricia J. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Socio-scientific teaching and learning (SSI-TL) has been suggested as an effective approach for supporting meaningful learning in school contexts; however, limited tools exist to support the work of designing and implementing this approach. In this paper, we draw from a series of four design based research projects that have produced SSI…

Gresham, Gina; Shannon, Tracy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Mathematics discourse is a teaching approach that encourages student discussion and reveals an understanding of concepts as students engage in mathematical reasoning and debate (Cobb 2006). Grabowski and Ke (2007) posit that students have significantly higher achievement and positive attitudes toward mathematics after participating in gaming…

Arnold, Pip; Pfannkuch, Maxine; Wild, Chris J.; Regan, Matt; Budgett, Stephanie – Journal of Statistics Education, 2011
Computer simulations and animations for developing statistical concepts are often not understood by beginners. Hands-on physical simulations that morph into computer simulations are teaching approaches that can build students' concepts. In this paper we review the literature on visual and verbal cognitive processing and on the efficacy of…

Bledsoe, Karen E. – Bioscience Education, 2011
Problem-based learning can enhance reasoning and concept development among undergraduate college students by presenting content within authentic contexts. However, large lecture sections present problems and barriers to implementing PBL. This article discusses approaches used by the author to infuse PBL into large biology lecture sections, and…
