Köksal, Ela Ayse – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Science is comprised of theory and practical work and to study either part is not enough to understand the whole. Practical work such as observation and fieldtrips should be used to develop students' inquiry skills as well as to support the theory. Teachers with high self-efficacy on fieldtrips will be more likely to use this technique.…

Rensaa, Ragnhild Johanne – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
The present paper presents three deliberately chosen mathematical episodes observed in a class of engineering students taking a basic calculus course. By drawing on analyses of instrumental and relational learning strategies, the episodes are shown to illustrate instrumental approaches indicated by the students. The paper discusses positive…

Koponen, Ismo; Nousiainen, Maija – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
We present a method to analyse how pre-service science teachers relate events, ideas, characters and deeds in history of science and in cultural and general history. A group of 25 students presented their views they deemed to be of importance in history of science, culture, society and politics in era between 1550 and 1850. The sample is based on…

Demir, Enes; Öztürk, Tugba; Güven, Bülent – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Proving is a process that has important roles in terms of learning and teaching in almost all the areas of mathematics. Because the process of proof constructions an extensive process that includes skills as mathematical thinking, reasoning and making connections. Reasoning is one of the most important components of this process. However, most…

Burrell, Matthew; Horsley, Jenny; Moeed, Azra – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Over the last two decades, education in Australia and New Zealand has focussed on improving student underachievement in schools. There is concern that this focus is having a negative impact on meeting the needs of high-ability students, including those who are potentially high-ability science students. It appears the freedom the national…

Usman, Ahmed Ibrahim – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The paper investigates geometric errors students made as they tried to use their basic geometric knowledge in the solution of the Applied Calculus Optimization Problem (ACOP). Inaccuracies related to the drawing of geometric diagrams (visualization skills) and those associated with the application of basic differentiation concepts into ACOP…

Wiener, Gerfried J.; Schmeling, Sascha M.; Hopf, Martin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper describes the second in a series of studies exploring the acceptance of the subatomic structure of matter by 12-year-olds. The studies focus on a novel learning unit introducing an atomic model from electrons down to quarks, which is aimed to be used at an early stage in the physics curriculum. Three features are fundamental to the…

Große, Cornelia S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
In recent years, the ability to use mathematics flexibly in everyday situations is increasingly accentuated, and mathematics education gives more and more attention to problems with realistic contexts. However, it is reported very often that learners have substantial difficulties in connecting mathematics to real situations. In order to solve…
