Nsengimana, Théophile; Mugabo, Leon R.; Ozawa, Hiroaki; Nkundabakura, Pheneas – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
In order to prepare Rwandan citizens for a competitive world, a competence-based curriculum (CBC) has been implemented since 2016. The problem addressed by this study is "under which conditions will the implementation of the intended science curriculum be realised in classroom". Framed by the Rogan and Grayson theory of curriculum…

Wilson Fadiji, A.; Reddy, V. – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Extant literature has demonstrated the importance of individual and school-related factors in improving mathematics achievement. Despite this, there is still a gap in research to understand the mediating role of educational aspiration in mathematics achievement. The aim of the present study is to test the relationship between self-efficacy, school…

Koma, Sechaba; Mokuku, Ts'epo; Makatjane, Tiisetso J.; Balck, Christel; Sermeus, Jan – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
This study investigated the extent to which the proposed Factory of Ideas (FOI) teaching approach impacted on students' understanding of energy based on their prior knowledge. The FOI is a didactic approach that, unlike the classic cognitive conflict approach, employs a variety of activities to offer students a scientific conception for comparison…

Shinana, Ester; Ngcoza, Kenneth M.; Mavhunga, Elizabeth – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Research findings show that inquiry-based science education has positive effects in improving learning of both science content knowledge and scientific inquiry (SI) skills. As a result, various science curricula, including that of Namibia, recommend the use of an inquiry-based approach in science teaching. However, the implementation of an…

Wafubwa, Ruth Nanjekho; Csíkos, Csaba – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
This study focused on the assessment of the structural validity of the 28 item adapted Teacher Assessment for Learning Questionnaire (TAFL-Q) in the Kenyan context. The sample consisted of 180 mathematics teachers drawn from 50 secondary schools. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to confirm the hypothesised two-factor model of the original…

Kok, Petrus Jacobus – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Over several years, first-year pre-service education students regularly experienced difficulty with engineering graphics activities. Research has already established that these activities require the use of well-developed spatial visualisation which is, for the most part, determined by a persons' spatial experience. The importance of this study…

Govender, Reginald Gerald; Govender, Desmond Wesley – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
The emphasis on programming and robotics owing to the unfolding of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the African continent has led the South African National Department of Education to propose a new subject in Grades R to 9. Hence, the training and development of pre-service teachers is crucial so that they can respond to the skills needed in…

Das, Dillip Kumar – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Attainment of competency is crucial for civil engineering students to solve socio-economic and environmental challenges and contribute to the development of a sustainable society by using engineering principles. Consequently, competency has become the measure of engineering graduates for which deep learning is essential. Constructive alignment has…

Fair, Deborah Lynn; Stott, Angela Elisabeth – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Little is known about longitudinal profiles of mathematics achievement spanning all phases of basic education of the same learners. This would be useful for identifying crucial points for intervention and informing learner subject choices. This research was aimed at establishing such a profile for boys attending a quintile 5 single gender school.…

Kwarikunda, Diana; Schiefele, Ulrich; Ssenyonga, Joseph; Muwonge, Charles Magoba – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
For efficient and effective pedagogical interventions to address Uganda's alarmingly poor performance in Physics, it is vital to understand students' motivation patterns for Physics learning. Latent profile analysis (LPA)--a person-centred approach--can be used to investigate these motivation patterns. Using a three-step approach to LPA, we sought…

Ogegbo, Ayodele Abosede – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
This research examines the relationship between high school teachers' understanding and reported practices of inquiry-based pedagogy (IBP) in science classrooms in Nigeria. A sample of 11 science teachers from an education district in Lagos, Nigeria, was chosen for this case study. Data were collected using a semi-structured questionnaire, which…

Makhechane, Mamohato; Mavhunga, Elizabeth – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Pedagogical content knowledge is considered a valuable knowledge base for all science teachers. Thus, promoting its development in all pre-service teacher programmes including a short 1 year Physical Science postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) course is desirable. This paper focuses on the comparison of topic-specific pedagogical content…

Chinaka, Taurayi Willard – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Research in the past decades has repeatedly revealed that first year university students struggle to understand two-dimensional projectile motion concepts. In contrast to high school, projectile motion frequently makes use of components and it requires at least a basic understanding of trigonometry concepts. To follow the lessons and generate…

Kouki, Rahim; Griffiths, Barry J. – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2021
In this article we present the results of an investigation into semiotic aspects of an introductory differential equations class from two countries. In order to perform a comparative analysis, students in the USA and Tunisia were given common questions on their midterm exams that examined analytical and graphical competencies. Our results indicate…
