Allchin, Douglas – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
The "consensus view" on the nature of science (NOS) is now outmoded. To help frame an enduring alternative, one should attend first to the "why" of NOS education. Functional, or civic, scientific literacy is foundational. Acknowledging a need for consumers and citizens to assess the reliability of scientific claims in personal…

Francis, Krista; Bruce, Cathy; Davis, Brent; Drefs, Michelle; Hallowell, David; Hawes, Zachary; McGarvey, Lynn; Moss, Joan; Mulligan, Joanne; Okamoto, Yukari; Sinclair, Nathalie; Whiteley, Walter; Woolcott, Geoff – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Spatial reasoning plays a vital role in choice of and success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers, yet the topic is scarce in grade school curricula. We conjecture that this absence may be due to limited knowledge of how spatial reasoning is discussed and engaged across STEM professions. This study aimed to address…

Hyslop-Margison, Emery; Rogers, Matthew; Oladi, Soudeh – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Despite widespread calls for evidence-based research in education, this strategy has heretofore generated a surprisingly small return on the related financial investment. Some scholars have suggested that the situation follows from a mismatch between education as an assumed field of study and applied empirical research methods. This article's…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Reis, Giuliano; Monarrez, Angelica – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
Research in science education has shown that one's identities as science learner and teacher can mediate their pedagogical practices. Grounded in the perspective that language is a resource for identity (re)construction (Gee, 2000), the present study sought to understand how preservice science teachers' identities were manifested in their…

Towers, Jo; Hall, Jennifer; Rapke, Tina; Martin, Lyndon C.; Andrews, Heather – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
In this article, we review published literature that draws on autobiographical accounts of students' experiences learning mathematics. We summarize the main findings of the target literature and present recommendations for further research that will extend this field. Our review indicates that autobiographical and narrative methodological…

Kim, Eun-Ji Amy; Asghar, Anila; Jordan, Steven – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
What is traditional ecological knowledge? In many disciplines, including science education, anthropology, and resource management, it has been conflated with Indigenous knowledges, which has contributed to misunderstandings. This article explores the history of traditional ecological knowledge and examines its contemporary conceptualizations in…

Watson, Jane M.; English, Lyn D. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
This report is based on an activity completed by 89 Grade 6 students carrying out a statistical investigation with a focus on posing an initial question given a context and then refining it for a chosen data set. Having reached a conclusion based on evidence from their data analysis, students were given additional information on the context and…

Carter, Lyn – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
There is now a plethora of writing around science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, in addition to the scholarship and practitioner domains, that includes policy and strategy statements both domestic and international, public and private. In overview, this article argues that STEM as the neologism for science education is…

Navas-Iannini, Ana Maria; Pedretti, Erminia – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2017
In this article, we explore how visitors engage with a science museum exhibit that displays controversial topics. Through a case study methodology, we focus on the Brazilian exhibit "Preventing Youth Pregnancy" that delves into teen pregnancy, sexual practices, and sexually transmitted diseases. Using the lens of science communication…

Kontorovich, Igor' – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article is concerned with exploring the mathematical knowledge and reasoning that can be engaged in providing explanations for the convention "a"[superscript 0] = 1. Posts from online open forums are used to illustrate the variety of mathematical ideas that can be utilized in the explanations. The explanations are examined in terms…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article explores the potential for aspects of abstract algebra to be influential for the teaching of school algebra (and early algebra). Using national standards for analysis, four primary areas common in school mathematics--and their progression across elementary, middle, and secondary mathematics--where teaching may be transformed by…

Meli, Kalliopi; Zacharos, Konstantinos; Koliopoulos, Dimitrios – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article presents a case study that examines the level of integration of mathematical knowledge in physics problem solving among first grade students of upper secondary school. We explore the ways in which two specific students utilize their knowledge and we attempt to identify the epistemological framings they refer to while solving a physics…

Turcotte, Sandrine; Hamel, Christine – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This study addressed computer-supported collaborative scientific inquiries in remote networked schools (Quebec, Canada). Three dyads of Grade 5-6 classrooms from remote locations across the province collaborated using the knowledge-building tool Knowledge Forum. Customized scaffold supports embedded in the online tool were used to support student…

Dossey, John A.; Funke, Joachim – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article presents an overview of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2012 Problem-Solving assessment. The assessment examined the capabilities of 15-year-olds in 40 nations and four large international cities, as well as the Canadian Provinces, to solve a set…

Shanahan, Marie-Claire; Carol-Ann Burke, Lydia E.; Francis, Krista – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
The term "STEM," used to describe science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, has come to prominence in Canada over the last decade, raising questions about its meaning. Here we examine its history in the United States and the sociopolitical commitments that have, in parallel, guided science education in Canada. The divergent…
