Reinking, Anni K.; Vetere, Michael J., III; Percell, Jay C. – New Waves-Educational Research and Development Journal, 2017
Family engagement can take many different formats, including community events. In this study, the researchers designed an event to encourage multigenerational family involvement using STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and DAT (developmentally appropriate theater). The study was also designed in an outside environment to…

Novak, Julia; Kensington-Miller, Barbara; Evans, Tanya – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2017
This paper describes students' perspectives of a one-off flipped lecture in a large undergraduate mathematics service course. The focus was on calculating matrix determinants and was designed specifically to introduce debate and argumentation into a mathematics lecture. The intention was to promote a deeper learning and understanding through…

Griffiths, Martin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2020
We consider here two questions posed by first-year undergraduate students in a statistics tutorial session. These questions are related, and each concerns an aspect of independence in probability. The notion of independence does tend to be a little less intuitive than some of the other elementary probabilistic concepts, thereby providing students…

Okazaki, Masakazu; Kimura, Keiko; Watanabe, Keiko – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2014
This paper aims to clarify how coherence of 'structured problem solving' mathematics lessons can be produced by comparing the lessons of three teachers from a narrative perspective. Results of our analysis showed three main coherence characteristics of lesson teaching sequences: (1) sequence scenes are recursively developed based on the previous…

National Assessment Governing Board, 2016
National standards for student achievement have been developed in the arts in a process that paralleled the standards discussions being held in mathematics, language arts, science, history, and other areas. The standards process, while demanding, has generated important discussion and debate about which art forms, what kind of knowledge, and what…

Dorsey, Zachary A. – Research in Drama Education, 2019
In this field report from a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) study abroad programme, the author describes how students came to see collaboration -- a key component of arts practice -- as a buzzword, rather than a set of specific, tested, vital practices productive to a wide range of situations. The author argues that…

Griffiths, Martin – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2010
We consider here the plethora of mathematical ideas arising from something as apparently banal as an association logo. This example is used to illustrate the fact that a potentially rich task may also have the capacity to appeal, in a powerful way, to learners' aesthetic sensibilities. It is to be hoped that both teachers and lecturers will find…

Holmes, Venita R. – Houston Independent School District, 2018
To measure the impact of fine arts instruction in HISD [Houston Independent School District] , the study compared the STAAR [State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness] performance, attendance, and disciplinary outcomes of fine arts students enrolled in Fine Arts Magnet schools (treatment group) with students enrolled in non-Fine Arts Magnet…

Griffiths, Martin – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, 2011
It is the case that some activities claiming to reside under the STEM umbrella do not, in fact, give participants the opportunity to engage in anything other than routine mathematics. With this in mind, we explore here the potential for developing and then delivering STEM activities based on the discipline of mathematical epidemiology. We argue…

Schroth, Stephen T.; Helfer, Jason A. – Parenting for High Potential, 2011
Knowledge of English/language arts, mathematics, and the sciences are considered important in the development of gifted children. Familiarity with the arts--music, the visual arts, dance, creative writing, and theatre--is, for many, a more difficult proposition. Budget cutbacks have marginalized the art offerings in numerous school districts…

Draper, Roni Jo, Ed.; Broomhead, Paul, Ed.; Jensen, Amy Petersen, Ed.; Nokes, Jeffery D., Ed.; Siebert, Daniel, Ed. – Teachers College Press, 2010
Today's teachers need to prepare students for a world that places increasingly higher literacy demands on its citizens. In this timely book, the authors explore content-area literacy and instruction in English, music, science, mathematics, social studies, visual arts, technology, and theatre. Each of the chapters has been written by teacher…
