Rahayu, Sri; Kita, Masakazu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This study investigated Indonesian and Japanese students' understandings of macroscopic and submicroscopic levels of representing matter and its changes and the difficulties they have with these concepts. A multiple-choice questionnaire was constructed and delivered to 447 Indonesian and 446 Japanese public senior high school students. The data…

Leavy, Aisling; Hourigan, Mairead; Carroll, Claire – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study reports entry-level mathematics attitudes of pre-service primary teachers entering an initial teacher education (ITE) program one decade apart. Attitudes of 360 pre-service primary teachers were compared to 419 pre-service teachers entering the same college of education almost one decade later. The latter experienced reform school…

Palha, Sonia; Dekker, Rijkje; Gravemeijer, Koeno – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
It remains difficult to foster problem-solving and mathematical-reasoning capabilities in classrooms where students and teachers are accustomed to the more traditional forms of education. Several studies suggest that this difficulty might be related to the kind of knowledge students acquire in such environments, which could be fragmented and…

Haroun, Ramzi F.; Ng, Dicky; Abdelfattah, Faisal A.; AlSalouli, Misfer S. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study examines gender differences of teachers on their mathematical knowledge for teaching in the context of single-sex classrooms in Saudi Arabia. A translated version of the Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT) instrument (Learning Mathematics for Teaching [LMT], 2008) in Number and Operation Content Knowledge (CK) and Knowledge of…

Chen, Cheng-Huan; Chiu, Chiung-Hui – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study designed a set of computerized collaboration scripts for multi-touch supported collaborative design-based learning and evaluated its effects on multiple aspects of metacognitive self-regulation in terms of planning and controlling and mathematical literacy achievement at higher and lower levels. The computerized scripts provided a…

Adkins, Michael; Noyes, Andrew – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The mathematical preparedness of science undergraduates has been a subject of debate for some time. This paper investigates the relationship between school mathematics attainment and degree outcomes in biology and chemistry across England, a much larger scale of analysis than has hitherto been reported in the literature. A unique dataset which…

Huang, Hsin-Mei E. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study examined the effectiveness of 3 curriculum interventions focused on strengthening children's ability to solve area measurement problems and explored the instructional perspectives of the instructor who implemented the interventions. The interventions involved various degrees of emphasis on area measurement and knowledge of 2-dimensional…

Kaasila, Raimo; Hannula, Markku S.; Laine, Anu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
In this study, we consider 5 preservice teachers who had negative views of mathematics at the beginning of elementary teacher education. We focus on methodological challenges: how to analyze their mathematical identity talk which to some readers can sound incoherent. Teacher change studies have often ignored the methodological challenges on which…

Pino-Fan, Luis R.; Font, Vicenç; Gordillo, Wilson; Larios, Víctor; Breda, Adriana – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
In this article, we present the results of the administration of a questionnaire designed to evaluate the understanding that civil engineering students have of the "antiderivative." The questionnaire was simultaneously administered to samples of Mexican and Colombian students. For the analysis of the answers, we used some theoretical and…

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…
