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…

Wallace, Maria F. G.; Higgins, Marc; Bazzul, Jesse – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Nature, as a creative ontology, and the ethico-political possibilities inherent within have been seemingly occluded in the field of science education. By Thinking with Nature (TwN), we return to the ontological dimensions of practice and research methodology in science education. Drawing on new material feminisms, educators are invited to follow…

Giordano, Sara – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In this paper, I combine feminist, decolonial scholar María Lugones' theory on playfulness and world-traveling with feminist science studies scholar Deboleena Roy's work along with some other core feminist science studies concepts to define feminist tinkering as an explicitly politically motivated "playing" with the epistemic power of…

Rotas, Nikki – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
This paper focuses on a transdisciplinary research project in a historically underrepresented public school in Toronto, Canada. At the intersection of elementary science, technology, and arts-based curriculum, the project employs the feminist new materialist practice of "diffraction" (Barad, 2007) in an after-school robotics club.…

Wooten, Michelle M. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
The research practices of academics of science teaching and learning (academics-"of-st&l") may be considered a connected, constructed landscape, the peaks of which are shaped by accumulation of like practices. Entangling interviews with twenty-seven academics-"of-st&l" and document analyses, in this paper I map the…

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…

Gebre, Engida H. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
Data literacy has become an important part of STEM literacy and informed citizenship in our society. However, data literacy initiatives in secondary schools predominantly focus on narrow issues of developing students' ability to work with quantitative data and fail to address students' broader understanding both as producers and consumers of data.…

Hall, Jennifer; Suurtamm, Christine – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In Canada, women are a minority in university mathematics programmes, and this situation has not improved in the past several years. To examine this situation, research was conducted to investigate the experiences of women who might be considered "success stories" in mathematics--those who persevered beyond their initial years of…

Zazkis, Rina; Marmur, Ofer – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2018
In this paper, we highlight a further use of scripting tasks in the work of researchers-teacher-educators, which we present in two parts. In Part 1, we study prospective secondary school mathematics teachers' responses to a scripting task on the topic of functions. The generated examples for a function that satisfies certain constraints provide a…
