Kutnick, Peter; Zhu, Zhiyong; Chan, Cecilia; Chan, Rosanna Yuen-Yan; Lee, Betty Pok-Yee; Lai, Veronica Ka Wai – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
School-based pipelines/routes for university and technical engineering education are recognised as important for economic development and the high-school years are critical for shaping students' career aspirations and attitudes. This study examined a range of attitudes/experiences on the aspirations of secondary students to pursue engineering…

Tao, Jinsong; McClure, Stephen C.; Zhang, Xiaoxing; Waqas, Muhammad; Wen, Xishan – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2020
Assessments of new pedagogical practices usually rely on instructor oriented surveys and questionnaires to measure student perceptions of teaching methods; however, fixed response categories in structured questionnaires might bias results. This paper demonstrates a mixed methods approach using open and multi-dimensional scaling (MDS) for a…

Maddison, Tasha; Beneteau, Donna; Sokoloski, Brandy – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2014
This case study describes the use of flipped teaching for information literacy instruction in a new course, "Drill, Blast, and Excavate GeoE 498," within the mining option for geological engineering (GeoE) students. These students will enter the mining industry with less discipline-specific knowledge than a student that graduated with a…

Breda, Ana Maria D'azevedo; Dos Santos, José Manuel Dos Santos – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2016
Complex functions, generally feature some interesting peculiarities, seen as extensions of real functions. The visualization of complex functions properties usually requires the simultaneous visualization of two-dimensional spaces. The multiple Windows of GeoGebra, combined with its ability of algebraic computation with complex numbers, allow the…

Alessio, Francesca G.; Demeio, Lucio; Telloni, Agnese Ilaria – International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, 2019
In this paper, we present a "route of activities" mainly addressed to first and second year engineering students attending the basic mathematics courses. These activities are intended to be a tool both for students and teachers. On the one hand, they should help the students to acquire a deeper understanding of the mathematical ideas and…

Heitman, J. L.; Vepraskas, M. J. – Journal of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Education, 2009
Mass-volume relationships are a useful tool emphasized for problem solving in many geo-science and engineering applications. These relationships also have useful applications in soil science. Developing soils students' ability to utilize mass-volume relationships through schematic diagrams of soil phases (i.e., air, water, and solid) can help to…

Wysession, Michael E. – Geography Teacher, 2016
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS; Achieve 2014, 532; Figure 1A) represent a new approach to K-12 science education that involves the interweaving of three educational dimensions: Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs), Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs), and Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs). Unlike most preexisting state science standards for…

Attorps, Iiris; Björk, Kjell; Radic, Mirko – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
In this paper, we report a teaching experiment regarding the theory of polynomial approximations at the university mathematics teaching in Sweden. The experiment was designed by applying Variation theory and by using the free dynamic mathematics software GeoGebra. The aim of this study was to investigate if the technology-assisted teaching of…

Bursztyn, Natalie; Pederson, Joel; Shelton, Brett; Walker, Andrew; Campbell, Todd – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2015
Declining interest and low persistence is well documented among undergraduate students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in the United States. For geoscience, field trips are important attractors to students, however with high enrollment courses and increasing costs they are becoming rare. We propose in this concept paper that the…
