Stiles-Clarke, Laura; MacLeod, Katarin – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Encouraging early development of career maturity has a wide variety of benefits for both students and society (Berger et al., 2007; Council of Canadian Academies, 2015; Hedlund, 1993; Hektner 1995; Welde et al., 2016). This large study of students in grades 6-9 in Nova Scotia showed that such programs are currently needed, especially regarding…

Melville, Wayne; Kerr, Donald; Verma, Geeta; Campbell, Todd – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In this article, we examine how the concept of autonomy may be construed as a foundational value which underpins students' coherent sensemaking of how the physical world operates. Autonomy and science both require students to comprehend and assess the quality of evidence, claims, and alternative outcomes. Further, participation in scientific…

Kajander, Ann; Lovric, Miroslav – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This study traces curricular support for concepts related to infinity and division by zero, in both elementary and secondary mathematics curriculum documents in our province. It was motivated by results of our previous and ongoing work related to transition to post-secondary studies in mathematics, in which we identified consistent gaps and…

Jao, Limin; Wiseman, Dawn; Kobiela, Marta; Gonsalves, Allison; Savard, Annie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Research indicates that learning about teaching methods is not the same as learning to enact teaching methods. In our mathematics and science teacher education programs, we employ a practice-based pedagogy approach requiring novice teachers to learn, practice, enact, and reflect on their teaching. This approach draws on work highlighting core…

Kajander, Ann; Flessa, Joseph; Lampo, Andrea; Sedor, Kelly – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Streaming students in secondary mathematics classrooms is a common practice in the province of Ontario, although there is conflicting evidence of its benefits. In this province, three streams of mathematics are available in grade 9. One of these streams, termed "locally developed," is based on the idea that school boards and teachers…

Pedretti, Erminia; Iannini, Ana Maria Navas; Nazir, Joanne – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Science museum landscapes are shifting with the emergence of controversial exhibitions. The complex nature of controversy poses interesting questions and challenges to museum staff and visitors. Our qualitative study focuses on a subset of the potential public audience for controversial exhibitions, who we call non-visitors. Through an…

Rissanen, Anna – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Especially, during the first year in university, absenteeism can have detrimental effects on grades and social integration of the student in the university community. According to pedagogical literature, altering teaching methods from lecturing toward engaging teaching, which applies various active teaching methods in the university classroom, can…

Reys, Robert – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
There are many paths to becoming an active researcher in mathematics education. This article describes one ideal path. It begins with identifying a useful educational background prior to entering a doctoral program. Then it offers some suggestions for selecting an institution to pursue a doctoral program. The article outlines some academic…

Kontorovich, Igor'; Rouleau, Annette – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This article is concerned with tensions that teachers who are studying for a graduate degree in mathematics education experience when conducting a research project. Specifically, we focused on the tensions that emerge in situations where teacher-researchers encounter the mathematical misconceptions and difficulties of their interviewees. The…

Haser, Çigdem – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
The key experiences in becoming an independent mathematics education researcher were investigated through interviews with eight doctoral students with academic job intentions at a Turkish university. Findings showed that doctoral students conceptualized a mathematics education researcher with several types of knowledge, skills, and attitudes,…

Koichu, Boris; Pinto, Alon – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This theoretical article explores an issue of developing education research competencies in mathematics teachers through their involvement in mathematics education research. We first argue that the development of education research competencies is beneficial for the teachers' professional growth. We then identify opportunities for mathematics…

Andrà, Chiara; Brunetto, Domenico – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
We investigate the process of becoming an expert in mathematics education through the narratives of Mario, a PhD student in mathematics education, and those of Anna, his young mentor. The narratives examine the initial interactions with mathematics education (specifically, the writing of a conference paper) and explore the motives, interests, and…

Liljedahl, Peter – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
The preparation of graduate students to become independent researchers is a central goal of all doctoral programs. In this paper, I present the results of a study looking at how this move to independence is viewed by graduate students enrolled in a mathematics education master's or PhD program. Results indicate that graduate students have very…

de Freitas, Elizabeth; Sinclair, Nathalie – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Human reasoning about and with uncertainty is often at odds with the principles of classical probability. Order effects, conjunction biases, and sure-thing inclinations suggest that an entirely different set of probability axioms could be developed and indeed may be needed to describe such habits. Recent work in diverse fields, including cognitive…

Cedillo, Stacia – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This article explores the concept of "anti-blackness" as a theoretical construct that may offer new openings towards transformative and liberatory projects concerned with race and inequity in STEM education research, policy, and pedagogical reform. The article first unpacks the historic, economic, political, and therefore racialized…
