Liu, Qin; Reeve, Doug; Rottmann, Cindy; Moore, Emily – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Co-ops and internships complement students' classroom learning and constitute important contributors to the quality of engineering education. In light of Stephen Billett's affordance-engagement framework, we reviewed 30 selected empirical studies on undergraduate engineering students' co-op and internship experiences. From these studies, we…

Seniuk Cicek, Jillian; Paul, Robyn; Sheridan, Patricia K.; Kuley, Liz – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Four graduate students from four distinct Canadian institutions engaged in collaborative autoethnography to explore their dual roles as participant-researchers investigating the lived experience of graduate students studying engineering education research (EER) in Canada. Findings, oriented through the identity-trajectory framework, indicate that…

Rottmann, Cindy; Reeve, Douglas – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Case studies have been used by engineering ethics educators for several decades, following a path paved by legal educators in the late nineteenth century. Unfortunately, few of these cases connect the micro-ethical decisions of individual engineers with the macro-ethical consequences of their actions, leaving intact a long-standing division…

Evagorou, Maria; Nicolaou, Christiana; Lymbouridou, Chrystalla – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Argumentation and modelling are core scientific practices, and studies suggest that incorporating the specific practices in the teaching of science can engage learners. This is a qualitative study of a classroom of 10-12-year-old students working collaboratively in argumentation and modelling. The aim of the study was to explore how primary school…

Sheldrake, Richard; Mujtaba, Tamjid – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Science-related careers are often considered to be less accessible by many children. More research is needed to distinguish any influences from different aspects of life so that support and/or interventions can be focused to help mitigate any disadvantage and inaccessibility. In order to gain greater understanding of constraints or influences on…

Klassen, Mike; Donald, John – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
This paper analyzes the curriculum of engineering leadership offerings in Canadian universities. We operationalize an adapted version of Lattuca and Stark's (2011) academic plan framework to analyze key documents of engineering leadership offerings embedded in the engineering curriculum in six different universities. In the process, we generate…

Holm, Jennifer; Kajander, Ann – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Some views of elementary teacher preparation may include the idea that undergraduate mathematics courses are useful or even crucial for prospective teachers to have. This study sought to identify teacher candidates with mathematics degrees, in order to study their mathematical preparation. The identified prospective teachers were studied to…

Wiseman, Dawn; Lunney Borden, Lisa; Beatty, Ruth; Jao, Limin; Carter, Ellen – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
This paper braids together experiences from three Canadian projects committed to creating learning opportunities where Indigenous and Western ways of knowing, being, and doing might circulate together. Show Me Your Math/Connecting Math to Our Lives and Communities (Mi'kmaw territory/Nova Scotia), the First Nations and Métis Mathematics Voices…

Hanin, Vanessa; Van Nieuwenhoven, Catherine – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Over the past two decades, the perennial low success rates of elementary students in mathematical problem solving and the difficulties experienced by teachers in meeting the various needs of their students with this type of task have become quite a hot topic. While there is a general consensus among education scholars about the crucial role played…

Wickstrom, Hanna; Fesseha, Ellen; Jang, Eunice Eunhee – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Mathematics achievement of Canadian elementary students has recently declined on provincial standardized testing. Despite a current emphasis on accountability-driven education, limited research has acknowledged the relation between heterogeneous student need and patterns of student achievement, specifically in regard to students with individual…

Khan, Steven – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
In this paper, I introduce the ideas of Sylvia Wynter, in particular, her concepts of "Man" and "After Man." I argue that the M in STEM is implicated in this discursive assemblage, which traces a lineage back to the political economy of mathematics that emerged during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and which is related…

Nicol, Cynthia; Gerofsky, Susan; Nolan, Kathleen; Francis, Krista; Fritzlan, Amanda – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
We come together, five mathematics teacher educators from varied cultural backgrounds and diverse academic pathways, interested in teacher professional learning, and interested in exploring our understanding of colonial practices in mathematics education specifically and in education more generally. In this paper, we share our stories, drawing…

Yaro, Kwesi; Amoah, Emmanuel; Wagner, David – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
In this paper, we reflect on our experiences teaching and working with mathematics teachers in Canada, Ghana, India and Swaziland to explore challenges and opportunities for creating mathematics tasks for peace and sustainability. Our exploration of these experiences is oriented around our interest in embedding peace and sustainability into…

Bowen, G. Michael; Stelmach, Bonnie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Considering the number of students who participate in them each year, science fairs are an under-researched area of science education. As part of a broader research agenda examining and conceptualizing science fairs, in this study we interviewed parents who had children who had participated in science fairs and were now in university. Parents…

Yan, Xiaoheng; Marmur, Ofer; Zazkis, Rina – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2020
Acknowledging the contribution of mathematicians to the mathematical education of teachers, we explore mathematicians' perspective on an envisioned Calculus course for prospective teachers. We analyzed semi-structured interviews with 24 mathematicians using the EDW (Essence-Doing-Worth) framework (Hoffmann & Even, 2018, 2019); and…
