Kaufman, Odd Tore – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
This article investigates how students in third grade learn to reason on multiplication when they first encounter that concept in the classroom context. By analysing the data from 24 classrooms focused on teaching and learning multiplication, the article aims at contributing to the research and conceptualisations about how students learn to…

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…

Enugu, Ramya; Hokayem, Hayat – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study examined the challenges that pre-service teachers faced when implementing inquiry and their perspective on how to overcome them. The data sample was 55 pre-service teachers (PSTs) enrolled into two sections of a science methods course in a private university in North Texas. The data sources consisted of inquiry-based lesson plans, PST…

Haara, Frode Olav; Bolstad, Oda Heidi; Jenssen, Eirik S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The development of mathematical literacy in schools is of significant concern at the policy level, and research is an important source of information in this process. This review article focuses on areas of research interest identified in empirical projects on mathematical literacy, and how mathematical literacy in schools is approached by…

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…

Potvin, Patrice; Hasni, Abdelkrim; Sy, Ousmane – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Nine secondary school teachers participated in a five day training program where they developed inquiry-based pedagogical interventions for their science classes. Student interest and self-concept in school science and technology were measured before and after the interventions. Increases in interest and self-concept were compared with the results…

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…

Dyrberg, Nadia Rahbek; Michelsen, Claus – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The "study group concept" at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) was implemented to aid first year students' transitional challenges. A mentor (an older student) is affiliated each study group to facilitate productive group work, bring awareness to study habits, and share his/her own experiences with life as a student. The study…

Kotsari, Constantina; Smyrnaiou, Zacharoula – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The central roles that modelling plays in the processes of scientific enquiry and that models play as the outcomes of that enquiry are well established (Gilbert & Boulter, 1998). Besides, there are considerable similarities between the processes and outcomes of science and technology (Cinar, 2016). In this study, we discuss how the use of…

Nuangchalerm, Prasart – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Based on 10 preservice science teachers in 4 schools, this study presents a detailed analysis of how preservice teacher expectation interacts with school practicum and authentic classroom action of inquiry-based instruction. Classroom observation, lesson plan analysis, and interviews revealed that inquiry-based instruction in the expectation and…
