Hiranyachattada, Tiantada; Kusirirat, Kampanat – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
Physically-based rendering (PBR) concept is widely use nowadays in 3D rendering works, this concepts interested in the ray of light for describes the interaction of light and materials. Understanding the principles of PBR can be easier to adjust shader parameters to be realistic, react correctly to changes in lighting condition and also giving the…

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…

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…

Kittiravechote, Aungtinee – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Despite a tremendous success in boosting students learn electrical analogies for science education, it remains a challenge to extend such strategy for formally constructing equations related to the Ohm's law in order to solve electrical problems based on series and parallel circuits. Unlike most traditional works of teaching technique that focus…

Phillips, Adassa; Hassanali, Muizz; Wingrave, James A. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Solving STEM problems requires that data (numbers and units) from a word problem be substituted into a mathematical equation(s) for solution. However, solving STEM problems is an implicit process that provides little or no guidance for the problem solving process. In this study symbols linking the data to the mathematical equation(s) are used to…

Fried, Daniel B.; Tinio, Pablo P. L.; Hughes, Azuri; Paneque, Diana – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Studying nature from the atomic and molecular perspective gives students access to modern scientific paradigms and could improve achievement and motivation towards science learning. A visual and tactile approach to chemistry can form the foundation for a child-friendly but high-level chemistry curriculum and could be a powerful tool to invigorate…

Palha, Sonia; Spandaw, Jeroen – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
Learning mathematical thinking and reasoning is a main goal in mathematical education. Instructional tasks have an important role in fostering this learning. We introduce a learning sequence to approach the topic of integrals in secondary education to support students mathematical reasoning while participating in collaborative dialogue about the…

Wiest, Lynda; Amankonah, Frank O. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
This paper reports the performance of 30 rising seventh-grade girls on a task in which they were asked to order four fractions from least to greatest. Less than three-fifths attained correct answers. The performance gap was widest between students who attended Title I schools and those who did not, the latter being much more likely to attain…

Fried, Daniel B.; Tinio, Pablo P. L.; Gubi, Aaron; Gaffney, Jean P. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The scientists of the future will need to begin studying science to great depth, much earlier in life, in order to keep up with the accelerating pace of discovery and technological innovation. For this to be possible, engaging and child-friendly pedagogical approaches need to be developed that leverage the natural enthusiasm of young science…
