Budinski, Natalija; Takaci, Djurdjica – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2011
This paper proposes modelling based learning as a tool for learning and teaching mathematics. The example of modelling real world problems leading to the exponential function as the solution of differential equations is described, as well as the observations about students' activities during the process. The students were acquainted with the…

Benacka, Jan – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2016
The article gives an account of an experiment in which sixty-eight high school students of age 16 - 19 developed spreadsheet applications that simulated fall and projectile motion in the air. The students applied the Euler method to solve the governing differential equations. The aim was to promote STEM to the students and motivate them to study…

French, A.; Cullerne, J. P.; Kanchanasakdichai, O. – Physics Education, 2019
This paper develops the ideas of "The Pedagogical Power of Context: Iterative Calculus Methods and the Epidemiology of Eyam" (French "et al." 2018 "J. Phys. Educ."), where we considered the application of the Euler method to solve epidemiological problems. Our purpose was to convey some examples of school level work…

Geng, Jianming; Chen, Kaiyuan; Wang, Nengxin; Ling, Sihan; Guo, Muqi; Huang, Zuyi – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
US high school (HS) students are lagging behind their foreign peers in math performance. It is thus necessary to design teaching modules that motivate US HS students to learn more math and to improve their math skills. Our study set out to test two different software programs designed for the development of such skills. MATLAB Simulink provides a…

Widmark, Stephen – Physics Teacher, 2012
Many physical systems are described by time-dependent differential equations or systems of such equations. This makes it difficult for students in an introductory physics class to solve many real-world problems since these students typically have little or no experience with this kind of mathematics. In my high school physics classes, I address…

Ottmar, Erin – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
This study investigates relations between cognitive, interpersonal, and intrapersonal opportunities, noncognitive outcomes, and student achievement in 1,096 students from 20 high schools (10 Deeper Learning [DL] network, 10 control) who participated in the Study of DL (SDL). DL is an umbrella term used to encompass the cognitive, interpersonal,…

Kwon, Hyungil H.; Pyun, Do Young; Kim, Ji Young – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2019
As a new sports policy, named "School Sport Promotion Group (SSPG)", the Korea government selected 50 schools in 2011 and 2012. Each school was granted US$40,000 a year for a three-year term. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of the SSPG programme when it pertained to students' motivation and participation in…

Aliiaskarov, Bekchoro; Bakiev, Erlan – Drugs: Education, Prevention & Policy, 2014
This study aims to predict social determinants of alcohol use and examines the influence of social bond/attachment, parental control and social learning on the frequency of youth alcohol use. The total of 1843 complete responses were received from 25 high school students in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The structural equation modeling (SEM) is used to…

Guo, Jiesi; Nagengast, Benjamin; Marsh, Herbert W.; Kelava, Augustin; Gaspard, Hanna; Brandt, Holger; Cambria, Jenna; Flunger, Barbara; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Häfner, Isabelle; Brisson, Brigitte; Trautwein, Ulrich – AERA Open, 2016
Drawing on expectancy-value theory, the present study examined the unique contributions of the four major value beliefs and self-concept on achievement, self-reported effort, and teacher-rated behavioral engagement in mathematics. In particular, we examined the multiplicative effects of self-concept and task values on educational outcomes using…

Schweizer, Fabian; Wustenberg, Sascha; Greiff, Samuel – Learning and Individual Differences, 2013
This study examines the validity of the complex problem solving (CPS) test MicroDYN by investigating a) the relation between its dimensions--rule identification (exploration strategy), rule knowledge (acquired knowledge), rule application (control performance)--and working memory capacity (WMC), and b) whether CPS predicts school grades in…

Street, Karin Elisabeth Sørlie; Malmberg, Lars-Erik; Stylianides, Gabriel J. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Students' self-efficacy expectations (SEE) in mathematics are associated with their engagement and learning experiences. Going beyond previous operationalisations of SEE we propose a new instrument that takes into account not only "facet-specificity" (expectations related to particular competences or skills) and "strength"…

Darolia, Rajeev; Koedel, Cory; Main, Joyce B.; Ndashimye, Felix; Yan, Junpeng – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We study the effects of access to high school math and science courses on postsecondary STEM enrollment and degree attainment using administrative microdata from Missouri. Our data panel includes over 140,000 students from 14 cohorts entering the 4-year public university system. The effects of high school course access are identified by exploiting…

Al-Hattami, Abdulghani Ali Dawod – ProQuest LLC, 2012
High school grade point average and college entrance test scores are two admission criteria that are currently used by most colleges in Yemen to select their prospective students. Given their widespread use, it is important to investigate their predictive validity to ensure the accuracy of the admission decisions in these institutions. This study…
