Cardella, Monica E. – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008
While many engineering educators have proposed changes to the way that mathematics is taught to engineers, the focus has often been on mathematical content knowledge. Work from the mathematics education community suggests that it may be beneficial to consider a broader notion of mathematics: mathematical thinking. Schoenfeld identifies five…

Evans, Brian R. – Journal of the National Association for Alternative Certification, 2014
Mathematics and science education has increasingly become more important for students in our globally competitive society. New alternative certification teachers, particularly in mathematics and science, need to support student learning in these areas in order for the United States to stay globally competitive. This article presents some ideas…

Raje, Sonali; Krach, Michael; Kaplan, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Concepts in mathematics are often universally applicable to other fields. A critical aspect for success in high school or college is the ability to transfer content knowledge from one discipline to another. This is especially true for material learned in the sciences and mathematics. Several studies have suggested that strong mathematical skills…

Tra, Yolande V.; Evans, Irene M. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2010
"BIO2010" put forth the goal of improving the mathematical educational background of biology students. The analysis and interpretation of microarray high-dimensional data can be very challenging and is best done by a statistician and a biologist working and teaching in a collaborative manner. We set up such a collaboration and designed a course on…

Klymchuk, Sergiy; Zverkova, Tatyana; Gruenwald, Norbert; Sauerbier, Gabriele – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008
This article presents the results of two studies on using an innovative pedagogical strategy in teaching mathematical modelling and applications to engineering students. Both studies are dealing with introducing non-traditional contexts for engineering students in teaching/learning of mathematical modelling and applications: environment and…

Jaworski, Barbara – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2008
A mathematics module in the undergraduate programme for first year engineers aims to enable those with low mathematical qualifications to understand and use efficiently calculus and related topics. The teaching approach is designed to develop student's fluency, understanding and responsibility through creating an inquiry community, encouraging…

Adams, Dennis; Hamm, Mary – Rowman & Littlefield Education, 2008
This book builds on the social nature of learning to provide useful suggestions for reaching reluctant learners. It is based on the assumption that instruction that focuses on students' interests and builds on collaborative and differentiated learning will allow students to move from believing they "can't do mathematics or science" to a feeling of…

Subramaniam, Selva Ranee; Cheong, Loh Sau – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2008
This study sought to explore the emotional intelligence of Form One mathematics and science teachers. The emotional intelligence of the teachers was determined using the Emotional Intelligence for Mathematics and Science Teachers (EIMST) survey instrument. It was adapted and adopted from related instruments and then pilot tested for validity and…

DePierro, Ed; Garafalo, Fred; Toomey, Rick – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008
This paper summarizes difficulties that chemistry students at all levels commonly exhibit when translating, manipulating, and interpreting mathematical expressions that contain logarithms, and offers approaches that the authors have found useful to help students overcome such difficulties. The online supplement provides problem sets created by the…

Ramatlapana, Kim Agatha – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
Teaching is a field that is dynamic, with innovations necessitating upgrading of skills and education of teachers for the successful implementation of reforms. The behaviour and attitudes of teachers towards teaching and learning and their knowledge banks are the result of the impact of in-service training. This study investigated the perceptions…

Nemirovsky, Ricardo, Ed.; Rosebery, Ann S., Ed.; Solomon, Jesse, Ed.; Warren, Beth, Ed. – Lawrence Erlbaum Associates (Bks), 2005
This book re-examines the dichotomy between the everyday and the disciplinary in mathematics and science education, and explores alternatives to this opposition from points of view grounded in the close examination of complex classroom events. It makes the case that students' everyday experience and knowledge in their entire manifold forms matter…

Kraft, Thomas E. – Tech Directions, 2005
A person's first significant "hands-on" encounter with mechanical things during childhood often comes through use of a bicycle. Almost all of us have personal experience with this element of transportation technology. Educators can use the bicycle to address a variety of standards that involve tool use, mechanics, science, math, and the interplay…
