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…

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 =…

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…

de Vocht, Miikka; Laherto, Antti – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

In order to facilitate policy-driven reforms in science education, it is important to understand how teaching innovations diffuse among teachers and how that adoption process can be catalysed. Little is known about the set of attitudes that makes teachers early or late adopters. In this study, the Concerns-Based Adoption Model (C-BAM) was employed…

Prediger, Susanne; Zindel, Carina – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017

This article combines different conceptualizations of teachers' diagnostic competence in listening to students' mathematical thinking processes on the levels of general perspectives, noticed aspects and activated didactic categories. An empirical study of 159 prospective mathematics teachers' diagnostic judgments investigated how these levels are…

Wegner, Claas; Issak, Nicole; Tesch, Katharina; Zehne, Carolin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016

The following article presents a concept of a science club which was developed by two master's students as a part of their thesis and which has been developed and improved ever since. The extra-curricular concept emphasises pupils' individuality through focusing on problem based leaning, station learning, and mixed age groups. Having joined the…

Wegner, Claas; Janzen, Nadeshda; Zehne, Carolin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015

With decreasing numbers of students pursuing a career in science (OECD, 2008), the call for educational reforms building a basis for an interest in science is great. Cooperation between schools and universities are an important aspect of these reforms, as they aim at sparking an interest in science (Robert Bosch Foundation, 2005). The Ministry of…

Große, Cornelia S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015

The application of mathematics to real-world problems is moving more and more in the focus of attention of mathematics education; however, many learners experience huge difficulties in relating "pure" mathematics to everyday contents. In order to solve "modeling problems", it is first necessary to find a transition from a…

Wegner, Sven-Ake – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014

In this article we present the prototype of a workshop on naive set theory designed for high school students in or around the seventh year of primary education. Our concept is based on two events which the author organized in 2006 and 2010 for students of elementary school and high school, respectively. The article also includes a practice report…

Wegner, Claas; Homann, Wiebke; Strehlke, Friederike – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2014

The German science project "NAWI-Interaktiv" is an example of innovative use of E-Learning and new media education. Since 2009, the learning platform provides learners and teachers with high-quality learning tools, teaching material, useful information and E-learning programs for free. This is to raise the pupils' motivation to learn…

The Importance of Learning Strategies and How the Project "Kolumbus-Kids" Promotes Them Successfully

Wegner, Claas; Minnaert, Lea; Strehlke, Friederike – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013

In education systems learners are expected to possess an increased degree of autonomy and show initiative in learning processes, inspecting learning materials and understanding contents. An efficient growth of knowledge inside and outside of school is only possible if students have skills which initiate, guide and control the search for…
