Marshall, Jill A.; Durán, Pablo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Several major organizations have recommended revisions to mathematics requirements for biology majors. To determine whether these changes would benefit future biologists, we investigated mathematics use in research biology. We surveyed prominent journals in high and low math-use areas for articles referencing the use of quantitative methods. In…

Abduh, Amirullah; Rosmaladewi, Rosmaladewi – SAGE Open, 2018
Most studies of intercultural competence in bilingual programs have been conducted in non-Asian contexts resulting in little information on how Indonesian educators promote intercultural values within bilingual programs. This research contributes to the body of literature that examines the promotion of intercultural values within bilingual higher…

Everingham, Yvette L.; Gyuris, Emma; Connolly, Sean R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
Contemporary science educators must equip their students with the knowledge and practical know-how to connect multiple disciplines like mathematics, computing and the natural sciences to gain a richer and deeper understanding of a scientific problem. However, many biology and earth science students are prejudiced against mathematics due to…

Satterthwait, Donna – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
In this paper, I explore how seamless embedding of four mathematical concepts: counting, ratio, distribution, and statistical significance, into a unit on inheritance enables students to gain a deeper insight into biological phenomena than a qualitative only approach achieves. The topic of Mendelian inheritance is used to illustrate this proposal.…

Takaoglu, Zeynep Baskan – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2018
When different disciplines that physics lesson is related are examined, it is seen that mathematics becomes prominent as one of the most used fields. Physics textbooks are the most significant resources to clarify this relationship. Therefore, in this study, it is aimed to analyze the involvement of mathematical knowledge in physics textbooks used…

Johansson, Helena – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This paper focuses on one aspect of mathematical competence, namely mathematical reasoning, and how this competency influences students' knowing of physics. This influence was studied by analysing the mathematical reasoning requirements upper secondary students meet when solving tasks in national physics tests. National tests are constructed to…

Perminov, Evgeniy ?.; Anakhov, Sergey V.; Grishin, Anton S.; Savitskiy, Egor S. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
Topicality of the study is driven by the fact that the new fundamental mathematical ideas and methods of mathematics arise in the new era of mathematization of science and have a great influence on the formation of methodological culture of educational research in recent decades. The aim of the article is to identify the important aspects of the…

Cormas, Peter C. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Preservice teachers in six sections (n = 87) of a sequenced, methodological and process-integrated elementary mathematics/science methods course were able to reconcile an issue centered on a similar area of epistemology. Preservice teachers participated in a science inquiry lesson on biological classification and a mathematics problem-solving…

Zhou, Shaona; Yeung, Yau-Yuen; Wang, Yanlin; Wang, Xiaojun; Xiao, Hua – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2014
Learning electromagnetics often involves dealing with problems with strong mathematical skills or thinking about problems in abstract and multiple spaces. Moreover, many students are often unable to explain some related physical phenomena using the appropriate electromagnetic principles. In this paper, we report on integrating two effective…

Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Bain, Kinsey; Towns, Marcy H.; Elmgren, Maja; Ho, Felix M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Graphical representations are an important tool used to model abstract processes in fields such as chemistry. Successful interpretation of a graph involves a combination of mathematical expertise and discipline-specific content to reason about the relationship between the variables and to describe the phenomena represented. In this work, we…

Scott, Fraser J. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The "mathematics problem" is a well-known source of difficulty for students attempting numerical problem solving questions in the context of science education. This paper illuminates this problem from a biology education perspective by invoking Hogan's numeracy framework. In doing so, this study has revealed that the contextualisation of…

Ramful, Ajay; Bedgood, Danny; Lowrie, Thomas – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This paper is the outcome of a collaborative endeavour between mathematics and science educators where the insight from each field mutually informed one another. Specifically, building on the knowledge base from mathematics education research, this study analyses the ways in which percent is interpreted by first year university students in general…

Mujtaba, Tamjid; Reiss, Michael J. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
The third of the eight Millennium Development Goals is to promote gender equality and empower women. This article discusses the factors that are associated with 31 female higher education students' choices and aspirations to pursue education and careers in mathematics and science-related fields. The analysis is based on semistructured interviews.…

Yurumezoglu, Kemal; Karabey, Burak; Koyunkaya, Melike Yigit – Physics Education, 2017
Full shadows, partial shadows and multilayer shadows are explained based on the phenomenon of the linear dispersion of light. This paper focuses on progressing the understanding of shadows from physical and mathematical perspectives. A significant relationship between light and color pigments is demonstrated with the help of the concept of sets.…

Luneeva, Olga L.; Zakirova, Venera G. – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
New educational standards implementation prioritizes the projective beginning of training in school education. Therefore, consideration of educational activity only as the process of obtaining ready knowledge should be abandoned. Thus the relevance of the studied problem is substantiated by the need to develop methodical works connected with the…
