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.…

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…
