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.…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

Aikenhead, Glen S. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Culturally responsive or place-based school mathematics that focuses on Indigenous students has an established presence in the research literature. This culture-based innovation represents a historical shift from conventional approaches to mathematics education. Moreover, it has demonstratively advanced the academic achievement for both Indigenous…
