Bodner, George; Elmas, Ridvan – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Discipline-based educational research (DBER) has shown that three instructional techniques--Supplemental Instruction (SI), Process-Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL), and Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL)--can be effective ways of improving student performance in chemistry courses at the K-12 or college/university levels. The goal of this paper…

Kazempour, Mahsa; Amirshokoohi, Aidin; Blamey, Katrin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Studies focusing on pre-service teachers have shown that the inclusion of the learning cycle model in a methods course result in improvement in understanding of and attitude toward the learning cycle model of inquiry. However, pre-service teachers' understanding and beliefs about the learning cycle model may remain varied and inaccurate and their…

Moraga-Calderón, Tania S.; Buisman, Henk; Cramer, Julia – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Studying quantum physics in upper secondary school is now a standard practice (Stadermann et al., 2019). But given the context of science education, with low recruitment numbers in higher education and poor attitudes towards science, it remains a question whether students find the learning of quantum physics relevant. In this study, we explore how…

Viro, Elina; Lehtonen, Daranee; Joutsenlahti, Jorma; Tahvanainen, Ville – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In order to thrive in today's uncertain environment, there is a need to master 21st century skills as well as knowledge of key subjects. Project-based learning (PBL) has been recommended as an important instructional strategy to prepare students for their future work and life. As teachers play an important role in classroom instructional practice,…

Faulkner, Fiona; Breen, Cormac; Prendergast, Mark; Carr, Michael – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
In 2010 the Irish second level mathematics curriculum underwent a period of significant change when a new mathematics curriculum was introduced. Some preliminary research has been carried out into the impact, if any, that this mathematics curriculum is having on students mathematics performance which have suggested that students' procedural skills…

Spatz, Verena; Hopf, Martin; Wilhelm, Thomas; Waltner, Christine; Wiesner, Hartmut – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Newtonian mechanics is still among the most difficult topics in the physics' syllabus taught at school. For example, even after completing traditional instruction, students still think that a force is necessary to maintain motion. Therefore, a revised method of instruction is needed that meets students' learning needs. The aim of the project…

Nyberg, Kristin; Koerber, Susanne; Osterhaus, Christopher – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Investigating scientific reasoning comprehensively with large sample sizes is a challenge, especially in young children where there is little evidence showing that paper-and-pencil instruments can be used to reliably measure competencies. The present study with 122 third graders compares three test modalities: an established interview (Science-K…

Bolstad, Oda Heidi – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This article reports a qualitative study of teachers' operationalisation of mathematical literacy. A model representing the multifaceted nature of mathematical literacy is used to analyse video recordings of mathematics teaching in three grade 9 classes. Analysis indicates that teachers' operationalisation of mathematical literacy appears to be…

Alfaro, Helen; Joutsenlahti, Jorma – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
High-quality teaching is crucial for improving mathematics education. Teaching mathematics requires specific knowledge, including knowledge of both content and pedagogy. In this study, we analyzed the knowledge for teaching mathematics among 80 future teachers from four mathematics teacher education programs in Costa Rica. Using the Teacher…

Rieche, Helene; Leuders, Timo; Renkl, Alexander – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Students' beliefs that mathematical abilities are fixed can cause long-standing problems with motivation and learning. Hence, teachers should notice such problematic beliefs about identity among their students and handle them adequately. We used written descriptions of classroom situations to determine whether preservice mathematics teachers (n =…

Hästö, Peter; Palkki, Riikka; Tuomela, Dimitri; Star, Jon R. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Flexibility is an important element in learning mathematics. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether flexibility in linear equation solving predicts future academic achievement in mathematics and other subjects. Participants were 149 Finnish high-school students. Results show that flexibility was related to grades in both tracks of…

Dawson, Chris – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Accumulated evidence indicates that low spatial ability makes a contribution, separate from levels of general or verbal intelligence, to the unlikelihood of students enrolling in, or succeeding in, STEM subjects. Further, there is a tendency for female students not to perform as well as males on some spatial tests, suggesting that this might be…
