Gülkilika, Hilal; Ugurlu, Hasan Hüseyin; Yürük, Nejla – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2015
Students should learn mathematics with understanding. This is one of the ideas in the literature on mathematics education that everyone supports, from educational politicians to curriculum developers, from researchers to teachers, and from parents to students. In order to decide whether or not students understand mathematics we should first…

Pournara, Craig; Hodgen, Jeremy; Adler, Jill; Pillay, Vasen – South African Journal of Education, 2015
It is wellknown that the majority of South African learners achieve extremely poorly in Mathematics. Many claim that one of the causes of this poor attainment is teachers' weak knowledge of mathematics, and propose that improving teachers' mathematical knowledge would improve learner attainment. However, the evidence-base for this proposed…

Aminah, Mimih; Kusumah, Yaya Sukjaya; Suryadi, Didi; Sumarmo, Utari – International Journal of Instruction, 2018
This paper reports the findings of a quasi-experiment that aims to investigate the role of metacognitive teaching-learning (MTL) and mathematical prior knowledge (MPK) on students' mathematical logical thinking ability (MLTA) and self-regulated learning (SRL). The subject of the study was 70 tenth-grade students inSumedang, Indonesia. One…

Nitsch, Renate; Fredebohm, Anneke; Bruder, Regina; Kelava, Augustin; Naccarella, Dominik; Leuders, Timo; Wirtz, Markus – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
In the subject matter of functional relationships, a student's ability to translate from one form of representation to another is seen as a central competence. In the course of the HEUREKO project (heuristic work with representations of functional relationships and the diagnosis of mathematical competencies of students), a theoretical competence…

Van der Vossen, Maria R. – ProQuest LLC, 2012
This causal-comparative study examined the relationship between enrollment/non-enrollment in music programs of differing content or quality and mathematical achievement among 739 secondary (grades 8-12) students from four different Maryland counties. The students, both female and male, were divided into sample groups by their participation in a…

Goodyear, Victoria A; Casey, Ashley; Kirk, David – Sport, Education and Society, 2014
Research suggests that girls are disengaged in physical education due to the "traditional" way that it is taught, i.e. teacher-centred approaches with a primary focus on motor performance. In contrast, Cooperative Learning, a student-centred pedagogy focusing on learning in multiple domains, has had success in engaging girls in physical…

Dhlamini, Joseph J. – European Journal of STEM Education, 2016
This paper reports on a pilot study that investigated the effect of implementing a context-based problem solving instruction (CBPSI) to enhance the problem solving performance of high school mathematics learners. Primarily, the pilot study aimed: (1) to evaluate the efficiency of data collection instruments; and, (2) to test the efficacy of CBPSI…

Al-Fayez, Mona Qutefan; Jubran, Sereen Mousa – Journal of International Education Research, 2012
This study investigates the impact of using the heuristic teaching approach for teaching mathematics to tenth grade students in Jordan. The researchers followed the equivalent pre/post T test two group designs. To achieve the goal of the study, a pre/post- test was constructed to measure student achievement in mathematics. The sample for this…

Simon, Marielle; Robin, Tierney; Forgette-Giroux, Renee; Charland, Julie; Noonan, Brian; Duncan, Randy – McGill Journal of Education, 2010
This paper presents a grade 10 mathematics teacher's in-depth description of the process she uses to determine the final grade for the report card within a standards-based context. Her case was part of a three-year comparative study of grading practices of teachers from two Canadian provinces that differ in their level of standardization of…

Ramnarain, Umesh; Padayachee, Keshni – South African Journal of Education, 2015
This study reports on the analysis of South African Life Sciences and Biology textbooks for the inclusion of the nature of science using a conceptual framework developed by Chiappetta, Fillman and Sethna (1991). In particular, we investigated the differences between the representation of the nature of science in Biology textbooks that were written…

Chung, C. J. ChanJin; Cartwright, Christopher; Cole, Matthew – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2014
Robotics competitions for K-12 students are popular, but are students really learning and improving their STEM scores through robotics competitions? If not, why not? If they are, how much more effective is learning through competitions than traditional classes? Is there room for improvement? What is the best robotics competition model to maximize…

Abu-Hamour, Bashir; Al-Hmouz, Hanan – International Journal of Special Education, 2013
This study examines the problem of underachievement among gifted high school students. Low achievers were compared to high and moderate achievers on their motivation, self-regulation, and attitudes toward their school and teachers. Participants were all highly able students from grades 10 and 11 in an academically selective gifted high school in…

Argentin, Gianluca; Pennisi, Aline; Vidoni, Daniele; Abbiati, Giovanni; Caputo, Andrea – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2012
Research has proven that teachers have a fundamental influence on student results. Moreover, effective teacher professional development is one of the key mechanisms for improving student achievement. By the most recent OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) definition, "Professional development is defined as activities…

Goetz, Thomas; Frenzel, Anne C.; Ludtke, Oliver; Hall, Nathan C. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2011
Previous research indicates that academic emotions are largely organized along domain-specific lines. In the present study (N = 1,687; Grades 8/11), the authors explored the domain specificity of academic emotions in terms of the moderating influence of having the same versus a different course instructor across domains. The authors evaluated…
