de Gamboa, Genaro; Badillo, Edelmira; Font, Vicenç – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
The making of mathematical connections in the classroom plays a dual role. While many studies highlight the importance of connections for the learning of mathematics, others inform of students' difficulties associated with the making of connections. This study aims to characterise the mathematical connections that arise in habitual classroom…

Bruce, Catherine D.; Flynn, Tara; Yearley, Shelley; Hawes, Zachary – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
Fractions remain a challenging area of school mathematics at every stage of education, with impacts that extend far beyond the school years. For this study, researchers engaged in classroom-based design research over a 6-year period to investigate effective strategies for teaching fractions with Canadian students. Participants included 86 teachers…

Cirkony, Connie; Kenny, John; Zandvliet, David – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
Worldwide, education jurisdictions are looking for authentic ways to address First Nations perspectives in the K-12 curriculum, including science education. At the same time, there have been ongoing efforts to integrate authentic and engaging approaches to teaching science, including those that are student-centred, inquiry-based, multimodal, and…

Grundén, Helena; Isberg, Jenny – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
There is an ongoing public debate about mathematics education. This dialogue influences policymakers as well as mathematics teachers who are affected by these public ideas. Consequently, exploring the public debate, for example, by studying news media, is relevant for understanding teaching and learning in mathematics and also pertinent for…

Kahraman, Sakip – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
The study investigated the effects of the use of dynamic computer visualizations (DCVs) integrated with the POE (Predict-Observe-Explain) sequence on learners' understanding and retention of solubility and on their motivation to learn chemistry. In the research, nonequivalent groups pretest--posttest control and comparison group design was used.…

Krall, Geoff – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
In order to identify the potential benefits and challenges of implementing student portfolios as quality mathematics assessment, a pilot study was conducted with teachers in various secondary school settings. The multi-case study consisted of five teacher participants from geographically and demographically differing contexts, four in the USA and…

Cruz-Guzmán, Marta; García-Carmona, Antonio; Criado, Ana María – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
Prospective preschool teachers (PPTs) need to have learning experiences with the practice of scientific modelling to be able to design appropriate lessons as teachers. In the literature on research in science education, scarce experiences of PPTs in scientific modelling can be found. This study aims to fill the knowledge gap about PPTs'…

Bonardi, Olivia; Burchell, Drew; Franz-Odendaal, Tamara Anne; Joy, Phillip – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
A small but growing body of research confirms that people in the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other identities) community are among those underrepresented in STEM (science, technology engineering, and math). This is concerning because diversity and inclusion improves science for all. In response, Canadian institutions…

Tairab, Hassan; Takriti, Rachel; Rabbani, Lutfieh; AlAmirah, Iman; Alhosani, Najwa; Erduran, Sibel – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
Effective teaching and learning of Nature of Science (NOS) has been a curriculum goal for decades and its inclusion into the science education from K-12 is becoming commonplace worldwide, regardless of the differences in the adapted science curricula. However, less attention, if any, has been paid to the holistic representation of NOS at…

Reiss, Michael J.; Sheldrake, Richard; Lodge, Wilton – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
One of the ways in which students can be taught science is by doing science, the intention being to help students understand the nature, processes, and methods of science. Investigative research projects may be used in an attempt to reflect some aspects of science more authentically than other teaching and learning approaches, such as confirmatory…

Mesutoglu, Canan; Corlu, Mehmet Sencer – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
Conceptually grounded curricular materials in the context of professional development programs facilitate teachers' adoption of new pedagogies. Even though science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professional development opportunities for early grade level teachers continue to receive attention, one existing challenge is to…

Towers, Jo; Markle, Josh; Jacinto, Everton – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
In this paper, we introduce a new interpretive framework, which we call Bodymarking, to aid in describing and interpreting activity (e.g., individuals' gestures, gaze, and interaction with materials in the environment) in the classroom. We apply the framework to video recordings of mathematics lessons to explain how it can be used and offer some…

Kercher, Andrew; Bergman, Anna Marie; Zazkis, Rina – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2023
Certain terms in mathematics were created according to conventions that are not obvious to students who will use the term. When this is the case, investigating the choice of a name can reveal interesting and unforeseen connections among mathematical topics. In this study, we tasked prospective and practicing teachers to consider: What is geometric…
